A Shift In My Life
When I arrived to begin work with Loreena I thought I had done a fair amount of work on myself and had been exposed to a great deal of personal growth through coaching, self help workshops and energy work. However, working closely with Loreena for the past year, I have received not only fresh insights and greater awareness, but profound tools to shift my life from the pain and conditioning of my past to a life with greater joy, freedom, inner peace and a deeper connection to God. Loreena brings to this work, her open heart, her 30+ years experience, her sense of humor, her passion, commitment and her deep love of God. Anyone who has the honor of working with her can’t help but be touched and forever changed. This work has made such dramatic shifts in my life. With heartfelt gratitude, I am now also being mentored by Loreena to learn this work, so it may touch others lives, as it has mine.

Can’t Say Enough
I am 74 yrs. And have suffered from severe back pain for years until I met Loreena. She has relieved me of that pain and is helping me with other issues that I have. There has been no other treatment or person that has helped me in so many ways. I cannot say enough about the positive influence her and her work have had on me.

It is with pleasure that I write this letter of acknowledgment of Loreena’s gift and unselfish sharing of her talent to apply this gift. Over the past 30 years I have watched her study, develop, even fail and yet develop again a remarkable healing of the inner light and soulic essence for countless people including my self. Her work walks that remarkable line of loving help, yet deep respect for the individual will. A true healer, more than fixing a person, helps the person to help themselves. Loreena is a true healer. It is a tribute to the grace of Loreena’s work to realize it is an art to pinpoint the effect of Loreena’s healing. I’ve noticed her recipients gain an attunement to the inner aspect of themselves that puzzles even them. Looking in their eyes their soul is more obviously present. Clarity about their life wells up from a depth that they claim to have previously been unaware of. A variety of physical symptoms seem to vanish. As I look back over the years I have experience Loreena’s treatments there has been a long-range benefit beside what has been mentioned above. I can give credit to her for helping me to find my own best way of healing. For me that seems to be the greatest benefit of her work that a soul could ask for.

Caring and Astute
I have been working with Loreena since 2001. She combines counseling with chakra energy work. I find the combination invaluable. Therapy addresses limiting patterns that we have developed in life, the chakra work that Loreena does takes this a step further. By working energetically on these patterns, I am able to fully release them.
My life looks very different now from when I started working with her. I used to play the role of the victim – I would feel sorry for myself, think I had done something wrong or bad, and garner a lot of attention from these patterns. I was miserable, and dreadfully unhappy. Now I am able to confidently hold myself in the world, set boundaries, choose to give to others and receive from them as well. I feel happy most of the time and fulfilled with my life choices. I should also let you know that I am now happily married, and in a fulfilling career.
I highly recommend Loreena. She is caring and astute. She treats me with compassion, but will also tell me the truth and hold a line of “tough love.” It is rare to find someone like her.
Sincerely Denise Rabius from San Francisco
Effective Energy HealerMy chakra work this summer with Loreena Hackett has been timely, rich and effective. I have used this unique chakra work for many years as my primary spiritual-emotional support. When I found myself in AZ for the summer, my chakra buddies recommended that I see Loreena while I was there. I am glad I did. Loreena's skill and intuition in chakra work moved me more deeply toward wholeness. She cleared old blockages to the full functioning of my kundalini. She assisted me in stabilizing my energy flows. She gave me daily tools to help me continue these aspects of healing. She has a strong affinity to the grounded power of deep feeling and vital life force. It helped me a great deal. I have recommended her as an energy healer to my naturopathic clients. They have moved forward in their lives. I recommend her work.

Received guidance changed my life
I came to Loreena looking for guidance, not knowing what to do. Thru counseling and her healing it helped me take a look at the situations I was in and change them. I'm doing a lot better at my job seeing it more clearly helps me achieve my goals. I was unhappy in a 16 year relationship that was no longer growing. I now have more value and love for me. I do more for me, make better food choices, nicer clothes, go out and be more social, get my hair done and get massages. And I now have my own house and I love it, thank you Loreena.
Spiritual teacher, healer, astrologer
Loreena’s intuition, spiritual knowledge, and life experience serves others in a remarkable way; I have witnessed it personally and through others in several of her workshops. She is among the few spiritual teachers who can truly see into another person with shocking clarity and accuracy. When she read my astrology chart she validated occurrences in my life and explained my natural tendencies. It made me wish I had learned from her when I was very young, as she elaborated on my spiritual, mental, emotional and physical nature. She went beyond what several astrologers offer, in that she made suggestions for how to balance my own challenges and way of interacting in the world. Her experience as a wise intuitive and healer lend themselves perfectly to her astrological readings, as she is able to discern beyond what the astrology chart alone can reveal. The result is a comprehensive analysis from an astrological, energetic, and soul level.
As a healer, Loreena’s heightened perception allows her to focus in on and release stagnant energies gently and effectively. Her pure intentions to be of service and level of self-development foster a sense of safety and absolute trust. She’s an extremely powerful healer who has been practicing for decades and knows what works. My energy level and sense of joy were renewed immediately, like someone had taken a large weight off of my shoulders after our session.
If you’re seeking more knowledge about yourself or metaphysical topics in general, Loreena is a truly gifted teacher. Whether you’re new to the path or you’ve been on it for years, she can reach those on all levels in her classes simultaneously and encourages questions. Her humor and way of explaining abstract ideas (she uses lots of visuals which I love!) make her classes fun and deeply spiritual at the same time. I know whenever I see Loreena that I’ll be met with unconditional acceptance and love, which is a rare gift in this world. She’s a true light for others who may be in search of understanding in these uncertain times of change. If you’ve ever hoped to heal yourself, learn about your connection to spirit, or simply gain knowledge, I can’t recommend her enough.
Astrology Class testimonials
" Having a PHD in Psychology and teaching in Universities and in private practice for 25 years, I have found this information extremely valuable. I wish I had been open and exposed 30 years ago - The time element and amount of information you can learn/see in a chart in one hour - is equal to 50 hours in therapy. Loreena makes learning this complicated art fun and interesting, I am more then pleased" Dr Laura Harrington PHD

A lot of information and thorough for an introductory class. Not too much to be "over the head" and not too little at all. In fact, Loreena obviously enjoys instruction and engaging with her students so much, she was willing to go over time allotment in the class so that the introduction was well-rounded and consistent. Do make sure you have your evening clear, "just in case" <wink>. Dr Nick B

Great class and fellow students.”
