Reiki Practitioner | Performer | Creative Collaborator
At the tender age of 9, Lionel began a healing and spiritual journey after a tragic loss.
Digging into his African roots, ancestral knowledge and self-development would transform him and help realize the oneness of the world, as well as the energies that rule it. After spending his formative years in central Africa, Lionel went on to live in France, from where he traveled numerous countries including India (Auroville most notably) in 2013: a trip that would change his life spiritually.
In 2017 in Paris, after a random conversation with a friend, "Reiki came to Lionel", leading him to pass his level I with encouragements from the Master Reiki teacher back then who felt the high vibrations of her student.
His desire to help others is the main reason he pursued Reiki, and noticed Reiki only encouraged his own self development and inner contentment. With that awareness, Lionel sought out a Reiki Teacher upon emigrating to Toronto and Level II passed in 2018 with his new Reiki Master Teacher, Sheena Dennise.
Trained in IT and creative entrepreneurship, Lionel is always keen on creating positive and
thoughtful spaces, and help people elevate themselves.
In April 2019, Lionel was invited to perform at Fashion Art Toronto and recently released his first album on May 21 2020.
You can follow and support his work by downloading his innovative and inspirational album on Spotify or iTunes.

Yoga Teacher | Crystal Healer
I turned to yoga as a way to disconnect from my busy life and slow down. I decided to break generational curses in my West Indian heritage and put my self-care first. My yoga practice led me to crystals which have enhanced my daily vibrations. I am a self-certified crystal healer and a certified 200-hour yoga teacher. I have also taken various crystal courses, my goal is to help others integrate crystals into their daily lives. In my classes, I aim to help students manifest good energy and leave feeling more whole.
