Rowenna Sian ~ Founder of Chi-Works
Rowenna, the founder of Chi-Works, is a qualified meditation leader and mindfulness teacher, with over 20 years of personal experience of using meditation, studying with various Buddhist teachers and centres over the years, as well as being a student of Tai Chi and Qi Gong with the Me Quan Academy. An experienced and outstanding teacher of art & photography for over 10 years, Rowenna has worked in secondary schools and colleges in London and the South East, where she developed a mindfulness programme for young people. She has trained with Peter Radcliffe, of Skillful Mind, and the world renowned MiSP (Mindfulness in Schools Project). She is also trained as a NLP practitioner and Cognitive Hypnotherapist.
With a natural talent for working with people, Rowenna was drawn to helping others from a young age and when she came across Reiki in 2004, when seeking help from a local therapist for an anxiety related issue, she knew that she wanted to learn how to use this form of natural therapy. In 2009, she found her first Reiki teacher, with whom she studied for a level 1 in Usui Reiki. She then went on to complete a level 2 practitioner qualification, and was initiated with a direct lineage to Usui Reiki. She completed a Master/Teacher qualification, with a lineage in Usui and Tibetan Reiki in 2011. In 2018 she started the Walthamstow Healing Circle - a regular healer practitioner group who meet twice a month to develop and explore their practice together. She also runs regular mediation classes from the Health Works, and travels to schools and businesses teaching students and staff how to use mindfulness and meditation to improve their wellbeing and mental health.
