Meet Our Founder
Brenda Berry, PHD, (Professor of Happiness and Delight) is the founder of Sacred Celebrations, llc and Tribe of the Anceint Women Mystery School. She is a Professional Educator, Ceremonialist, Shamanic Healer and Energy Medicine Practitioner, Holy Fire Reiki Master Teacher, Wedding Celebrant and Happiness Coach. After completing her Reiki training in 2009, Brenda knew she was to walk the path of the healer and in 2011 enrolled in 2 years of intensive study in the art and science of Integrative Energy Medicine through WhiteWinds Institute in Atlanta, GA. In 2014 she completed her studies with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s Health Coaching program while simultaneously delving into Shamanic healing practices and is a now Pachakuti and Katari Mesa Carrier (a Peruvian Shamanic Healing Tradition of the Andean Indigenous People). Brenda has over 2500 hours of training in a variety of energy and spiritual healing modalities; 20 years experience in holistic healing (utilizing food as medicine, herbs, homeopathy, essential oils and a variety of other natural healing techniques); and 15 years experience as a spiritual educator and guide. She has a private practice in Winchester, VA and is certified as a Holistic Health Practitioner by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. She teaches a variety of classes including all levels of Reiki, Chakra Balancing with Essential Oils, Rune Divination and Dream Catcher Weaving as a meditation.
So that’s the head candy of her “credentials” – but here is a deeper aspect: Brenda is a Sagittarius and fierce guardian of Love, Truth and Innocence. Brenda lives and expresses her wildness as an invitation for others to do the same! A bridge between Heaven and Earth, she translates abstract esoterical concepts into easily understood terms with practical applications for our lives as modern women. Brenda began circling with women in 2000 and discovered a strength of support born from living in her personal truth with vulnerability and acceptance – this has changed her life for the better. During her 2014 vision quest, Brenda received a clear message of what she was to do – create this program. Through the healing aspects at Sacred Celebrations, Brenda helps women discover the Sacred Feminine living within them, she coaches them to stand in the essence of undefended love, invincible innocence and unfailing compassion, and encourages them to bring forth and manifest the Divine Feminine aspect of the Creator into the depths of their being, helping to bring wholeness to their lives and to a broken world. Simply stated, Brenda offers heart-healing to all those whose lives she touches.
Brenda lives in Winchester Virginia with her beloved husband, John, and 2 adorable Yorkie companions, Lily and Molly.
