Donna Pedersen, Energy Sensitive and Clairvoyant with Reiki Level II training.
Donna grew up outside of Sudbury in a tiny community where she spent most of her free time in nature. From young Donna was intuitive and experienced episodes of clairvoyance. Later in life Donna’s gifts became stronger. The event triggered an immense interest to learn more about intuition and how to work with clairvoyance. She found and read many books on mysticism, learned about meditation and began practicing it at home and with a group. Then she took the Reiki Practitioner course and learned to work with subtle energy to promote healing.
Eventually Donna discovered divination cards. After familiarizing herself with card reading it has become the preferred method to provide guidance and messages. She has been happily providing readings for a decade.
Saturdays 10am – 4pm (appointments and drop-ins always welcome).
