ANN RUANE

After getting an undergraduate degree in music education and a Master's degree in collaborative piano, I settled into a comfortable career teaching piano lessons. Life happened and before I knew it, I was receiving my Reiki I and II attunements with Rose Koremenos and taking weekly classes on crystals and crystal healing with Diane Bloom.

My curiosity was beyond piqued so I went through the process of receiving the Munay-Ki Rites and continuing on with the Reiki Master training. Still hungry for more, I graduated from the Free Spirit School of Integrated Energy Healing-Developing Consciousness program and also became a Certified Teacher of Crystal Healing.

My journey with this work began in 2007 and has changed my life. I continue to learn and explore, allowing my curiosity and intuition to guide the next step.

In addition to Lux Eterna Healing, my passion for piano playing remains strong. I enjoy performing both collaborative and solo concerts locally as well as dabbling in composition.

Other things that feed my soul include:

    • being in nature
    • reading a great book
    • engaging in thought provoking conversations
    • snuggling up by a cozy fire
    • spending time with my husband

"When I first met Ann, I was in a "stuck" place in my life. Things weren't working, and I was struggling with deep wounds and challenges that I could not heal. I had tried numerous therapies, medications, and resources over many years, to no avail.

A friend referred me to Ann, and I took her glowing recommendation as an indication that Lux Eterna Healing was a resource worth considering. I entered my first session hoping to gain a little more insight on my path. Instead, I have found Ann's work to be nothing short of amazing! Ann possesses genuine gifts of spirit and intuitive wisdom that she uses to skillfully guide clients through their stories. Ann's gentle presence and deep empathy help clients move to a safer place to explore any issues that may arise with grace. She has allowed me to discover hope and move toward healing after so many years of dead ends. With Ann's guidance, I am finding peace in my life. I am forever grateful that our paths crossed and that she is a trusted partner on my health journey. She is an answer to my prayers."

Ann has a true gift. The work she has guided me through has been life changing. Simply put, after working with Lux Eterna Healing I feel empowered and connected to Self.

Working with Ann has been healing for my heart and soul which integrates into my physical and mental health.

My session was the first time I had really worked with crystals and the second time with Reiki. WOW - what a freeing and enjoyable experience.

Over the last few years, I have continued working with Ann. She journeys with me and helps me see connections that are difficult to face alone. My sessions can be filled with laughter, breath work, intoning, crying, and expressions of repressed anger in any combination. The healing power of Lux Eterna is liberating.

I highly recommend working with Lux Eterna. Your session will shift with you as you grow and change. The tools you learn are practical and effective.

As a Catholic priest, so much of my work is in the caring and healing ministry. My parishioners come seeking counsel, direction, and guidance, and that can be very intense and draining. Often times when I arrive for my reiki session with Ann, I feel depleted, off-balanced, and exhausted. When I leave, I feel refreshed, re-energized, and renewed to continue the work that I am called to. Ann is truly gifted and called to this healing ministry. She listens with great compassion. She prays with true depth. And she lays hands with an intentional focus. She replenishes my energy. I am grateful for this blessing in my life.

My experience with Ann’s work is nothing short of exquisite and powerful.  I asked Ann to be a member of my healing team to assist in my transformational journey for my personal and professional growth.

Ann is not only a powerful healer and shares her perspective freely and professionally, her energy work is among the best I have experienced.

Being her client has safely facilitated the deepening of my process.

I recommend her without reservation.

“Sessions with Ann help to manage my stress levels at work.  Taking an hour with her allows me an opportunity to regain perspective rather than focusing on the frustrations of the day-to-day obstacles that crop up with my job.”

-David D.

"Before my first Reiki session, I didn't know much about what Reiki was or what the benefits could be. I went to the first session with an open mind thinking that I would do one session. After 5 sessions I am amazed at changes in my physical, mental and spiritual well-being.  I had ongoing headaches and chest wall pain for many years and after the first session am free of both.  Ann has been a phenomenal, gentle and wise guiding force to help me navigate through an amazing life changing course that I was desperately looking for but didn't realize was so needed until I started with the first Reiki session."

-Lisa P.

"I went to Ann not knowing much about Reiki or what to expect. But I was feeling miserable and was willing to try anything once. I found the session to be very peaceful and relaxing - a great opportunity to focus inward and work on fixing my approach to some of my stressors. Some subsequent sessions have had a particular focus and some have seemed to let go of focus and just be. Recently, I've really been enjoying Ann's blog postings. Each has resonated deep inside, helping me to identify and work on some things which have been ignored too long. I look forward to my next appointment!"

-Steve K.

"Reiki has helped me release the stress of raising a large family and the Reiki benefits continue after the session.  The interactions with Ann and the environment she has created make the healing all-encompassing. I am very grateful for her gift."

-Amy W.

"Being a client of Ann is an amazing opportunity for me.  She provides a powerful combination of healing techniques in a warm, safe environment.  The treatments I receive have had a significant impact on my journey.  Ann truly understands her gifts for what they are and I am honored to experience the services she provides."

-Beckie J.

"The Reiki treatments I have received from Ann are so uplifting and healing.  I can't say enough about her as a conduit of the Spirit within."
