About
Eleonore Koury RMT, CMT
Eleonore Koury has been a student of various spiritual, healing, and meditation traditions since 1990.  She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, is a
Reiki Master Teacher, Healer, Breath and Body Worker, Meditation Coach, Author and Speaker.  Eleonore is Author of Seeds of Love, A Personal and
Planetary Transformation. She has been featured in The Reiki Magazine, published in the Awareness Magazine, and appeared on The Conner Bubble for
the Nutritional Literacy – Holistic Approach series.  

In 2002 Eleonore experienced the quickening of her spiritual evolution and was guided to make changes in her life.  Following her inner guidance she
completed her work of 5 years in the substance abuse and violence prevention field with youth as educator and counselor, simplified her life, and began
her sabbatical.  

She started Sacred Ventures, leading sacred wilderness journeys in the Santa Monica and Orange County Mountains and Beaches.  The focus of  these
journeys is to bring people to the healing and teaching elements of nature, to restore and renew the spirit, and to facilitate a reconnection with the
sacred and the vital life force intrinsic to nature and reflective of what is within us.

In 2003 she was guided to pilgrimage to Crete, Greece, the birth place of a highly evolved civilization known as the Minoan Civilization.  Eleonore, a
survivor of the 1967 and 1975 wars in Lebanon, felt spiritually called to travel during the outbreak of yet another war on the Gulf Coast.  She felt that
this pilgrimage would in some way, uncover within her psyche, and the psyche of the collective, the memory of a time and place where people and the
environment co-habitated in peace, harmony, trade, arts, and prosperity.

She returned to the U.S. with a renewed vision of what was and what is possible.  She was drawn to institutions and events that spoke of this vision of
a renewed world.  She worked collaboratively with varying teachers and healers ranging from work with the orphaned children of South Africa to
environmental arts projects to restore balance in the psyche of our world.

She was then led to return to Los Angeles in service both to her Family and her community.  It was in service to her Aunt Fay, who was in her last year
of battling cancer, that she began to feel the tug towards the healing arts.  Fay nudged her towards energy medicine and encouraged Eleonore to
expand her natural gift to heal.  Soon after her Aunt's transition, Eleonore attended a Spirit Quest through the ARAS Foundation on Molokai, Hawaii.  As
in ancient indigenous traditions, the week-long retreat prepared her for a 36 hour quest in the wilderness.  Similarly to her journey to Crete, Eleonore
was profoundly impacted by her experience in subtle ways.  Upon her return to LA, she was attuned to Reiki, leading her to Master Teacher Level.  
Through the encouragement and support of her family, she expanded her healing work, and pursued education at the Institute of Psycho-Structural
Balancing, combining bodywork, energy work, breath work and meditation to support individuals on their healing and awakening path.

Her work as healer, teacher, and speaker continues to evolve.  Committed to her personal healing and spiritual work she continues her education in
Reiki studying with teachers such as William Lee Rand, Jessica Miller and Laurelle Shanti Gaia.  She also networks with local Reiki Masters and
researches new materials  incorporating new healing techniques and refining her Reiki practice.  Eleonore also studies and practices meditation and
yoga with local teachers from varied disciplines (kundalini, hatha, iyunger, vipassana, buddhist).  She is now a Certified Kundalini Yoga Instructor and is
available for one on one yoga mentoring and group classes.  Check website for specifics.  She is passionate about empowering men and women with
this powerful technology that strengthens overall health, supporting the nervous, glandular and immune system while giving you a great workout and
expanding your consciousness and awareness.   The technology and science of Kundalini Yoga
is a powerful combination with the ancient healing
practice of Reiki.

It is through the combination of all these modalities that Eleonore supports individuals on their healing and awakening path, co-creating a c
onscious
world connected to
truth and wisdom.

Currently she is based in Southern CA., working with individuals and groups in various locations throughout Los Angeles.  
She also teaches the Reiki portion of the Urban Zen Program at Yoga Works, Los Angeles

Eleonore Koury has also journeyed many sacred landscapes, Southern and Northern California, Hawaii, Greece, Ireland to name a few.  

Since 1996  she has connected with the sacred and healing aspects of sites she is led to.  Her journeys inspire all areas of her work and inspire her
path as a healer, teacher and visionary
