My name is Lyria Pascal and I am the founder of Lotus Palm Healing. For over 15 years, I have been a Qigong Instructor and Energy Practitioner serving hundreds of clients throughout the United States and Europe. My intention is to offer heart-centered practices and accessible instruction for client and students to transform "health projects" and elevate wellness on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels. My job is to empower students and teach them to access and cultivate their inner light, wisdom, and power. In this way, I support one's own healing.
Helping me start my family
I have received weekly sessions in energy work from Lyria for about a year now. I started the treatments after two miscarriages that resulted in significant emotional and spiritual challenges for me. Lyria has been extremely helpful in supporting through those experiences as well as my current, healthy pregnancy! I have gotten to know Lyria as a health care practitioner that has a very healing ability to listen, to tune into what's most important and needed, to share her wisdom when appropriate, and she has the ability to create a very safe space for each healing session. Her actual work has been very palpable and often transforming for me. And I have no doubt that she has greatly helped me on my way to motherhood. I highly recommend her to my friends and family.
Profound change in my physical and emotional well being
I have been attending Lyria's Qi-Gong classes at Lotus Palm for almost 7 years. Her gentle but persistent teachings have made a profound change in my physical and emotional well being. Her caring one-on-one healing sessions have helped me get through tough times. Lyria has great insights and is a true healer!
A safe space for healing
There are people who are involved in energy work in our midst...and then there are those who are truly Lightworkers, here to live the journey and quietly share with us the profound wisdom of lessons learned and integrated during the fulfillment of their own contracts over multiple lifetimes. Lyria is the second group and lives her practices. Her understanding and acknowledgement of the guidance and assistance available to us are most obvious and invaluable. She silently and lovingly expresses an ability to hold space during a session and I feel empowered to progress in a way that dovetails keenly with my level of understanding, while "pushing the envelope" of healing and knowing. A healer myself, it has often been challenging to find and trust the space for movement when my own path becomes muddied and less than clear. Time and again, I have found solace, clarity and often profound expansion during and after a session with Lyria. I am in deep gratitude to Spirit for having placed her in my path!
Qigong has changed how I am in the world
Lyria's no-nonsense, free flowing and sometimes gently nudging teaching style has been helping me tremendously. Her encouragement to stay focused on letting the Qi in allowed me change how I am in the world. I don't know where I would have been had I not started taking her weekly classes 11 years ago.
Deeper transformation than I could have ever imagined
I was introduced to Qigong and Lyria about 4 years ago beginning with an energy session that I believe saved my life. That led me to take classes with her. Each class, each lesson, has been instrumental in my growth, yet in the beginning I was resistant to daily practice. Even still, things changed. They shifted. When I chose to devote to the 100 Day Gong, I had no idea just how right Lyria was about daily practice. I was once ruled by my emotions, so much so that I was unaware of how to cope which led me to numb myself with drugs. I spent most of my life on and off of drugs, unable to find anything that helped me be free from the repetitive thoughts and intense emotions. I can say that today I am not even the same woman! I have less reactivity and am able to move through faster when I do. I do not think the same, speak the same, or walk through life the same. I have peace. I have understanding of who I truly am. I am able to flow with life as it comes. This year I had a significant other go through a cancer health project among all of life's other flavors, and I STILL had peace and spaciousness in my every day. I am beyond grateful for this practice and all the extra teachings and bonuses that Lyria offers every single day!
Rebalancing my body
During the 100 Day Gong, I experienced so much rebalancing in my body, and I know every day I'm moving towards greater health. Near day 50, I started to be able to put my arms above my head for two different techniques in the practice, whereas previously my shoulders were so tight that I could only do it for one of the techniques. Around this time, I was also able to stand more consistently, where previously I had been too tired or would get so dizzy at certain parts of the practice due to so much shifting in my body. By the 90-day mark, I noticed my digestion was improving. My constipation started to disappear, and I began experiencing much fuller bowel movements. The bonus sharing sessions helped me feel connected to Lyria and to my classmates. I always savor Lyria's wisdom and learn from what my classmates are experiencing in their lives as well.
Learning to love myself
The 100 Day Gong is an invaluable experience. I am learning to love myself and am becoming grateful for all my life experiences. I have learned to truly let go of pain from my past, and I look forward to the wonder of all that is yet to come. My thought process is changing…not circling over and over again. I have become much calmer. I am enjoying everything. Lyria is an amazing teacher. She draws you in and you feel so connected. I look forward to every class. This is life changing for me! Priceless!
