“People say that what we’re seeking is a meaning for life. I think that what we’re really seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experience on the purely physical plane will have resonance within our innermost being and reality, so that we can actually feel the rapture of being alive.” ~Joseph Campbell

Hello, I’m Tania Tyler, a Reiki Master / Teacher Practitioner (since 2006),  herbalist and owner of Mystic Zen Healing Jewelry.

After closing my Reiki practice in 2020, the Secret Garden Healing Oasis, I decided to continue sharing and created ThrivingReiki.com with the intention to provide a place for guidance, education and healing so that we may all find and empower our true Self.

I left the corporate world (programming & consulting) to chase dreams and to live a life with deeper meaning. Paths change and lead to new adventures. I started an herbal products business (Mystic Naturals) which I closed May 2008 to concentrate more on my healing practice and classes. It’s a wonderful feeling to be a catalyst for an individual’s healing and growth, to share the excitement and wonder as we explore something new. I have learned and experienced much from helping others.

I try to walk my path with love, gratitude and compassion, feeling the interconnectedness and sacredness of all.

I have taught workshops in herbal & natural healing and have been a guest speaker for the Rotary Club, Mystic Chamber of Commerce, and local garden clubs. I am a published author of herbal articles and co-author of “Herbal Tea Remedies” published by Running Press.

I have been a Reiki volunteer at the Wm. W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, CT through the Center for Healthcare Integration (Chi) Program. I approach Reiki from a more traditional perspective vs the newer Westernized. Reiki has become the foundation for my life and I practice on a daily basis.

My life’s journey is in helping others to discover pieces of who they are, to notice the beauty in the small things, to be thankful for the challenges and lessons which allow for their personal growth, and to always be true to themselves; all which promote a state of well-being, health and wholeness. I come from a line of healers, my great grandmother was the healer of her village in Poland and it continued with her relocation to Pennsylvania. I grew up taking long walks with my great grandfather pointing out all the various local plants and their medicinal uses. And continued with my grandmother’s gardening and folklore knowledge.
