About this pro

Come learn about energetic alchemy and Reiki mastery from Dorothy Lee Donahue, who has taught novices and veterans in the energetic healing arts, making what has often been a mysterious and difficult process accessible to all and usable for all situations in life.

Energetic Alchemy beyond Reiki uses the principles of Reiki, a study of energy founded over a century ago, and takes it beyond that by applying today's knowledge and understanding. It is a marriage of eastern and western traditions, exercises, practices and healing that take the student to levels formerly only achieved after years of meditation and practice.

Energize and heal your life and manifest with intention and purpose by learning the tools given to us from the eastern masters as well as our star brothers and sisters.

If you are ready to become part of the solution instead of you being part of the problem, then please call Dorothy Lee, arrange for a private session or attend a class and receive your Reiki mastery in one weekend.

    Dorothy Lee brings great joy and love to her craft and it shows. She is loving, generous and highly knowledgeable in several healing modalities. I've had some physical issues and she was very adept at helping to shed light on their spiritual nature and providing me with a path to heal. A great experience.

    Thank you for changing my life đź’š
    Dorothy helped me in ways I could've never imagined. She assisted me in finding so many blockages that I didn't even know existed, but have been there since childhood or before. I have been forever changed thanks to Dorothy, and will proclaim to everyone I know of her amazingness! You can't put a dollar amount on this, it was worth more than money can buy in my opinion. Thank you Dorothy for helping me tap into my inner core self, and for reminding me of where I came from along with the knowledge that I've always known. Recommended for anyone who is feeling out of balance, this is the equivalence in my opinion of spiritual surgery! :) live in love not fear! -Derek 2/11

    Dorothy was very prompt in responding and really helpful. I was looking for Reiki but ended up going with Dorothy because she has such great reviews. I'd have to agree that it was a pleasure getting to work with her and I even got some homework to do which I'm more than happy to do too. Thanks Dorothy!

    It has been well over a year since I met Dorothy, and I'm so grateful that I did. I was in a dire situation where I had serious health issues that for some reason couldn't be detected by any tests doctors would give me. When my family turned away from me for lack of evidence of illness, I took it upon myself to turn towards alternative medicine and heal something that I knew I had. Very soon after this low, low point in my life, I came across Dorothy and all her magic. She treated me like family and has always been such a generous person with me. I had always felt I was a hassle or a shame in my family, but Dorothy's compassion is out of the roof and she has been patient with me despite my downfalls and short-comings, and that is something that has helped me slowly but surely improve to where I am today, to a great extent. I went at this energy work and reiki stuff blindly at first. I didn't know what to expect but at the time I was willing to do anything and I felt I was at the right place at the right time. And let me tell you, it works. I FELT things move and change around in my body. There WAS a difference between when I came in and when I left. I still remember. My digestive tract had definitely improved. And I felt the weight come off me after talking through the issues that I had experienced. It was amazing. And it's really something that you have to experience for yourself, and who better to experience it than with the best: Dorothy. This woman is the real deal. I took her reiki class too, and I learned about things I didn't even know I was capable of until I put it into action. And now I do energy work on my friends or even myself every now and then, and I find that what I usually feel energetically in someone else is pretty accurate! Dorothy also provides you with a TON of resources to look over and it seems like a lot a first but if you be patient and take it one document at a time, you will find that it is the most useful thing ever! And you can always call her when you have any questions, she will not turn you away. She has really helped me beyond what I initially had thought was capable. Dorothy is just magnificent. Honestly, if your sitting here reading reviews wondering if you should go for it or not, please do. You can usually tell when a person is serious about their work, and from the moment I started working with her, I did not doubt her one bit.

    After doing the workshop with Dorothy, I can say assuredly that my life has changed forever. Not only do I feel rekindled with my true life purpose, I am reconnected to my very soul. Through her guidance and wisdom, Dorothy has taught me that our potential in this world is infinite and that the only barriers that truly exist are the ones created by our minds. Feeling awakened is an understatement, the energy which flows within me now is beyond anything I ever imagined. I have already been able to perform my first healing and there will be many more to come! I have to thank Dorothy for showing me what I'm able to do and giving me the confidence I needed to bring Divine Light into my life and the people I love. All I can say is, this workshop goes so beyond Reiki, it's about remembering who you truly are and what you came here to do. I sincerely recommend doing this if you are seeking purpose and identity, because she will give you the answers you need and far beyond that. She is truly an amazing being of light who will reinvigorate your faith in God and the beauty of Life itself. Thank you, thank you, thank you Dorothy for all the Light you have brought to my life to this day.

    I would highly recommend Dorothy if your looking to be enlighten and looking for your spiritual purpose. She made feel right at home. She was very knowledgeable in her work. I left there very happy and feeling amazing about myself. She's so loving and very funny too. I will definitely go back to see her again and I'm looking forward to attending her work shops as well. Thank you Dorothy for making feel special and giving me confidence in my journey of enlightenment. Plus she gave me tools that I will read and follow for my quest in life and my purpose. Once again thank you and hope to see and speak to you in the upcoming events......

    I gained more than I had anticipated from Dorothy's 2-day Reiki class. She is incredibly wise, and genuine, and it is felt strongly through her teachings and her presence. I really appreciated that she shared her knowledge so generously on topics that went deeper than a typical reiki class. She made me feel empowered and reminded me of the great things I am here to do. Her place is beautiful and I was blessed to also to be able to take the class with 2 other lovely ladies. I left feeling a sense of great peace, awakenness, and the courage to take on the mission that is purposed for me here on earth. She gives you TONS of resources that are priceless for our overall growth and healing. I trully recommend working with Dorothy, as it will surely change your life and you will be continually transformed even after a session with her. Thank you to my spirit guides, angels, and Dorothy :)

    What a wonderful and insightful experience! In warm and safe environment, while Dorothy educates you, she simultaneously brings to the surface some of what we already know we have to deal with, but are perhaps to blocked or too fearful to do so and ultimately let go of on our own ... You leave with a stronger sense of both balance and hope and clear understanding of what you need to work on and she gives you plenty of tools to do so.

    I had a session with Dorothy in December 2015. She was warm and easy to talk to. I felt safe. During the session, she addressed my emotional and physical pain. She helped me to understand why I chose to be here on earth. She taught me how to trust myself again. Deep inside I have all the answer. However, I denied myself all the time. She showed me how to access that part of me. After our session, I gained a lot of clarity. I realized I was using my words to against myself all the time. She gave me a lot of information and homework to continue the healing process. Dorothy showed me that I have the ability to create the life I want. It was the best gift I had for myself. I highly recommend Dorothy to those who are ready to heal and change their life. Davi

    Dorothy was amazing. My experience was unlike any other I've had. Not only did she enlighten me while I was with her but she also gave me tools that I can use on my own to elevate my life with the assurance that I can contact further with any questions I might have. An added bonus was that she healed an area on my body that I never even mentioned to her. And I've been pain free ever since. I would recommend her without a doubt.

    This was a new experience for me, I knew I wanted to learn about Reiki and discover what it was about and possibly use it in my life and for people around me. I attended a week end workshop with Dorothy and 6 other people. The days flew by and Dorothy provided us with a tons of information. She attuned us to all 3 Reiki levels and introduced us energetic Alchemy. She shared all she could with us over the week end. Plus sent us home much much more to read and learn. This was a wonderful experience. It is slowly changing my life. I am putting this new knowledge into daily habit as much as I can. I truly believe it was the best experience for me and I know Dorothy will always be around if any of her students need help. Dorothy thank you so much for opening me up to a new world and new visions. I needed it.

    Dorothy is an amazing teacher. One thinks one is attending for Reiki instruction but what happens over two days is a wonderful understanding of energy in the metaphysical realm that is comprehensible to all. Students practice on each other using intuitive healing, and Dorothy supervises each and every student. Wonderful things happen when one is able to access energy in a individual way that suits every single participant. I highly recommend Dorothy Donahue's class. You will be amazed. Namaste! Andrea

    Something about Energetic Alchemy spoke to me so I booked a session. I thank the universe I did. Dorothy is amazing! You complete a short questionnaire, which is returned to her prior to your appointment. It asks the pointed questions that really make your goals clear. That means all of your time in her presence is spent being healed and getting educated in the ways of the universe. Departing with an enormous amount of information and homework it was clear I had gone to the right person. What Dorothy provided was so much more than the beautiful healing I received! I now have faith that I am on the right path, I have been lifted up, and already my life is changing in amazing ways. I canÂ’t wait to attend her weekend workshop! I canÂ’t thank her enough! She is a blessing on the world!

    I had a lower back issue. Dorothy addressed the emotional causes underneath this affliction. I could see she was correct in her assessment. She treated the physical, mental, & emotional nature of my pain. Even better, she introduced me to some tools I can use to continue my healing process. I went to her place for a 3 hour session. She was most accommodating in booking me at my earliest convenience. The session was like a magical mystery tour with her giving me the keys at the end. We went well pass the 3 hours; she's generous with her time & knowledge. I heartily recommend her to anyone who has an interest or need in individual and/or collective healing. I use to be skeptical of many of the concepts Dorothy represents, but no more. Working with her has opened my eyes. I was so impressed with Dorothy's private session that I booked a spot in her weekend workshop. Let me tell you that she offers so much more than standard Reiki attunements & initiations. I know because I received Usui Reiki I & II years ago. It's great stuff but Dorothy's incredible development of it along with her bag of Energetic Alchemy tools gives the sincere student a supersonic heavyweight lift into the endless stratosphere of compassionate healing awareness. Don't delay, please investigate what she has to offer. Thank you, Miss Dorothy; you're lovely, elegant, & wise.

    Dorothy is possibly the most optimistic person on Earth. If not most, certainly approaching the pinacle. Seeing her is like a psychic energy drink, a jolt of uplifting ideas, ideals, and effervescence. You will like her and enjoy the company, benefit from the experience, and walk away with a better outlook.

    Dorothy is truly a Heaven-sent! From the moment we met, she immediately "knew" me, she has an amazing sensibility , depth of perception and compassion, she understands things immediately. The session was terrific, she is a wonderful listener, caring, helpful and always positive and optimistic. A true Healer! She puts you at ease and proceeds to do her work, she is right there with You the whole time, she walks you through every step and holds your hand through the process, You are never alone. I was dealing with a very difficul, painful and confusing situation, Dorothy was simply awesome, her compassion and empathy along with her knowledge and patience was what i needed I felt an enoirmous weight being lifted by the time we finished, and in the following says I felt even better, she provided me with tools and exercises that proved to be very effective, even "magic" ... She understands the mind-body-spirit connection and it's inner workings like very few people can. I can not recommend Dorothy enough, she was and continues to be a blessing to me and all of us fortunate enough to have met her and experience her work. George K.

    Dorothy does not stop at exactly an hour, gave 3 hours of her time. unlike the computer where we can punch the delete button many belief systems are deeply programed. dorothy put me under and we visualized what i wanted as my Intention . we did Tesla energetic work,theta healing, crystal skull work . and much much more . she needs to reach more folks .wants folks to be aware of power of our thoughts at this time .the power of our spoken word , she is giving healer

    Plain and simple, Dorothy has made me feel good. Her sessions are insightful, inspiring, and highly motivating. Through her knowledge of reiki and other methods of healing, I walked away from the session feeling like I could accomplish anything. What I liked best was the time and care she took with my situation and offered up some wonderful insight on how best to proceed. Her method is one of a kind and I would recommend anyone to have a session with Dorothy. I am looking forward to more sessions with Dorothy in the future.

    There are no words to describe the experience of a session with Dorothy or her Energetic Alchemy trainings. Dorothy Donahue is a life experience not to be missed. A wonder of the healing worlds, she is a catalyst for change, a personal ally and a visionary healer. She replaces hope with faith and instills a sense of wonder in our potential for personal and global and universal healing. Go Dorothy!
