Pam Allen-LeBlanc

Pam Allen-LeBlanc began teaching Reiki in 2011 after attending William Rand’s Reiki Master class in Glastonbury, England. While she has had a rich and varied background as a Reiki Master-teacher and a Reiki healer, she is best known for her unique approach with Reiki and animals. She teaches Reiki and Animal Communication at her farm in Durham Bridge, NB, Canada as well as other areas of Canada, the US and Australia and is open to travelling to other regions to teach.

A former scientist and businesswoman who initially had difficulty accepting the “reality” of Reiki, Pam is now a convert, having helped heal herself as well as many clients and animals with Reiki. Along the way, she discovered that there is an incredible amount of science supporting this work. From the beginning of her Reiki journey in 2009, Pam identified with the ICRT approach to Reiki for their respect and openness to all lineages as well as for the effective techniques and thorough theory taught in ICRT classes. Pam kept up with all of the courses the ICRT offered and in 2016 during a Reiki meditation was guided to become a Center Licensed Teacher with the ICRT. In May, 2019 she realized that dream and became the first Canadian ICRT Licensed Reiki Master Teacher. She is grateful to William Rand and the ICRT for providing such a high level of integrity, respect and professionalism in their courses and teachings and is honored to be a member of their Reiki community.

As an Usui/Holy Fire® III Reiki Master-Teacher and a Holy Fire® III Karuna Reiki® Master-Teacher, Pam trains people and animals from all walks of life and different belief systems. Many of her students have become successful Reiki Master-Teachers themselves. And her herd of 12 horses at Hidden Brook Farm support her work. She loves to watch her students prosper and grow as they integrate Reiki into all aspects of their lives.

Pam has a B.Sc. in Agriculture as well as an MBA (Masters in Business Administration). She is a Reiki practitioner, a Centered Riding Instructor, a therapeutic riding instructor, an animal communicator, a Dowser & intuitive and creates the Hidden Brook Farm line of essential oils. Pam has been a contributing author of the Reiki News Magazine since 2013 and is one of the authors of the ICRT Animal Reiki course. Her greatest joy is helping people and animals better connect with their spiritual natures so they can heal, grow and step fully onto their life paths.
