About Mary Genevieve Gutierrez- Batara
Mary’s first experience of Reiki was at the age of seven (1989). She was initiated on Reiki I, by Edwin Stumpf from Kauai, who was trained and initiated by Paula Horan on 1987 and Rev. Hyakuten Inamoto on 2010. The initiation was a gift of gratitude to her parents.
She grew sensitive and comfortable working with energy, healing family and friends along the way. She would often notice strong energy coming out from her hands. On August 2005, Mary was certified on Reiki I, by Pearl Gonzales-Po, a Reiki master in the Philippines.
On May 2009 she took Reiki II. It widened her knowledge and saw the need for other people that can benefit from it. She volunteered to do Reiki healing in the community, on sick children during their recuperation, and those experiencing pain in a tertiary hospital.

and soon realized her calling to be a Reiki Teacher. After 3 years of Reiki practice as a Reiki level II practitioner, On March 2012, she attained
