Institute for Spiritual Development 

Your Instructors:

Jo Ann Wormuth experienced a dream visitation by Archangel Gabriel while recovering from a life-threatening illness in 2014.  She came to understand that this visitation was her calling by God to use her gifts as a “Lightworker” to help humanity on Earth.  JoAnn began a path to become an Energy Healer by completing Eden Energy Medicine Foundations.  She is now a Reiki Master-Teacher and an Integrated Energy TherapyŽ Master-Instructor.  She is a sanctioned healer with the Institute for Spiritual Development in Oneonta, NY where she participates in the Sunday "healing chairs" once a month as a volunteer. In all her practices and teachings, she strives to impart that true health is a balance of physical, mental and spiritual bodies. She retired from her position as Human Resource Manager/NYS Regional Certification Officer with DCMO BOCES in February of 2014. She still enjoys teaching fitness classes for the Adult Education Program at BOCES.
