Bright Star Woman Reiki Yoga Manual
by Mercedes Déziel-Hupé

Reiki is a birthright; we are born with life energy, and we innately know how to best care for ourselves, whether our needs are physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual.

This Reiki yoga manual is born from a passion for wellness, and from years of dedicated yoga and Reiki practices, independently. The value of each modality and their potential combined power is shared in this practical guide on Reiki yoga.

In this book, you will learn how to:

- meditate and connect with your own Reiki channel

- use mindful breath, yoga exercises and self-treatment to help the flow of Reiki

- develop your intuition and a self-care practice

- support your physical and emotional body

Whether you are a yogi(ni), have an established meditation or energy-based practice, or are a complete beginner who has never set foot on a yoga mat or a zafu, this manual will meet you where you are, and welcome you to yourself.

Through Reiki and yoga, the themes presented within this manual provide practical and holistic tools for wellness to conscious women who are busy and looking to reconnect with their intuition, healing ability, and personal power. Whether you are looking to add to your self-care routine or create one from scratch, this manual provides practical self-care that works on many levels and that you can revisit, wherever you are on your wellness and spiritual journey.

Mercedes Déziel-Hupé practised yoga for a few years before discovering its healing power in 2012 as a support to overcoming burnout and depression. Reiki helped Mercedes free herself from anxiety and assist her mother as she was battling cancer. Reiki, yoga, and meditation together empowered her as she healed from medical conditions including hypothyroidism and a pre-diabetic condition, and heal from the grief of loss and later, from a traumatic birth experience.

Curious to reconnect with her indigenous heritage, Mercedes sought counsel and guidance from Elders and Wisdom Keepers of various nations. At 27, she received her spirit name, Bright Star Woman, which confirmed her path as a healer and teacher. The following year, the same Cree Elder who named her recognized her as Wolf Clan.

Mercedes is a holistic life and wellness coach. She is a registered yoga and meditation teacher with the Yoga Alliance, an Usui and Blue Star Reiki master teacher, and a keeper of indigenous rites. She is an accredited life coach with the CTAA, EFT, NLP and Hypnotherapy practitioner, holistic

nutritionist, and hand reflexologist. In addition, she holds a bachelor’s degree in Communications and Philosophy from the University of Ottawa.

Early in her career, Mercedes was a journalist and freelance writer, who was published through

a daily newspaper (Le Droit) and several other university publications (Tabaret Magazine, uOttawa Gazette, University Affairs) and for employers, including Health Standards Organization and Accreditation Canada in 2019. Mercedes is currently writing her next wellness book.

She lives in the National Capital Region with her husband, children, and cat, where she enjoys reading, dancing, watercolour painting, eating delicious whole foods, and stand-up paddling on flatwater.
