About Manna Healing with Amy J.

Learn. Heal. Evolve.

Amy’s story

Amy first began teaching over 20 years ago. As long as she could remember, she struggled with understanding, processing and claiming her innate strengths, abilities and gifts, because she did not fully comprehend how to be herself in a world full of perceived roadblocks.

She experienced a variety of physical, emotional and spiritual challenges that left her, in some cases, severely physically and emotionally crippled for the first 23 years of her life.

Were it not for the few special individuals who saw her true Self hidden and struggling, those teachers who chose to share their wisdom with her, so she could learn how to use and be proud of who she was, the path to health and happiness would have been immensely dark, lonely, and full of suffering.

Because she felt, first-hand, the powerful results and nurturing effects of having someone believe in her innate abilities, Amy made the decision to devote her entire life to learning and facilitating growth for herself and others.

As a former full-time middle and high school teacher, specializing in working with learners who learn “outside” the box of traditional education methods, she recognizes that life is all about transitions. Amy uses her teaching, curriculum development, performance background, and experiential approaches to learning to assist you in remembering your innate ability to co-create your life from a place of empowerment and autonomy: full of beautiful transitions that support, nurture and inspire you to become your most empowered and authentic Self.
