PAM & DONALD McMAHON
Music and Breath Work
Pam and Donald T. McMahon have been spiritual and life partners for 49 years. They live in the country in Western North Carolina with 3 of their 4 grown sons. They are called “Straight From The Heart”. They have produced 3 CD’s and perform around the country at many Reiki Retreats and Sound Healing Conferences. They turned on, tuned in and dropped out in the mid 60’s when they went back to the land, began growing organic food, cooking from scratch and taking full responsibility for their health. They home schooled their four boys and maintained a frugal and simple lifestyle, close to the earth and God. Meditation, yoga, nutrition and spiritual inspiration led them to the healing arts, which they have been studying and practicing for over 40 years.
Pam is a Certified Transformational Breathwork Facilitator and ordained minister as well as a Reiki Master Teacher. She stepped onto the Reiki path in 1996 and received her first Mastership in 1999. In 2003 she became a Karuna Reiki Master when she took a class from Laurelle Shanti Gaia and Michael Baird and was so impressed with their knowledge and teaching style that she decided to pursue another Reiki Master Class with Laurelle, Michael and William Lee Rand, all Senior Licensed Reiki Master teachers with the International Center For Reiki Training. It was in this 7 day Residential Master Class that Pam and Don both feel that they found the confidence to begin teaching Reiki in a committed way. Don started Reiki in 1997 and began teaching with Pam after the 7 Day Intensive Master Class. In his day job, Don is an independent computer consultant and software developer for several small county water districts in WNC. Pam and Don have also made music together since they met, 49 years ago.
