Reesa Gavriella Mallen (aka "The Inked Jewess") provides teachings and guidance to those seeking to improve their lives and aid their healing utilizing easy to learn, spiritually based tools.
Her group and individual sessions encompass music, Kundalini meditations/mantra chanting/breathwork, guided chakra and spiritual meditations, working with crystals, as well as an introduction to aromatherapy, energy clearing, the law of attraction/vision boards, kabbalah technologies and EFT Tapping. Each group or session is specifically customized to best fit the needs and interests of the client. In addition, Reesa can't help but to mix in a dash of light-hearted humor.
She is available to lead group and private sessions (in the Los Angeles area or via Skype) at treatment/recovery centers, sober living homes, schools, community centers, synagogues, churches or under a tree.
Reesa is the former Photography Director of TEEN Magazine and Disney Publishing's Wondertime Magazine, was the Global Creative Director of Photography for retailer Lands' End and held similar creative corporate roles with Forever 21, Victoria's Secret, Ford Models, and Chico's.
It was Reesa's personal recovery that was the catalyst for her career change after spending twenty years in the publishing and fashion industry. She felt a strong call to be of service to others and completed her studies in Drug and Alcohol Counseling and Recovery Coaching, which lead her to teaching spirituality groups at a luxury Los Angeles residential treatment center. Reesa is currently undergoing training in crystal healing and will be a Certified TransCrystal Therapist in April 2018.
Reesa has since been guided to teach healing tools to all who are open to learn in the recovery and general communities, as well as for private clients. Her goal is to bring awareness and knowledge to all of the wonderful tools we have access to that greatly assist us with our healing process and awakening.
For over twenty-five years, Reesa has been inspired by a variety of teachings from many different spiritual philosophies; she is a perpetual student of Marianne Williamson, Wayne Dyer, Kabbalah, Abraham Hicks, Caroline Myss, Deepak Chopra, Kundalini Yoga, Pema Chodron, The Dalai Lama and Eckhart Tolle, among many others.
Maya Angelou, Karen and Rav Berg, Esther Hicks, Wayne Dyer, Lousie Hay, Caroline Myss, Marianne Williamson, Yogi Bhajan, Pema Chodron, Dr. Gloria Montgomery, Paramahansa Yogananda, The Dalai Lama, Albert Einstein, Viktor Frankl, Martin Luther King, Jr., Eckhart Tolle, Oprah Winfrey, Don Miguel Ruiz, Deepak Chopra, and so many others.
"In recovery they say you should find a person that has something you want - not monetarily or physically, but something deeper than that, something real. For me, that person is Reesa. She may not paint a masterpiece, or carry a perfect tune, or write a beautiful poem (at least that i know of!), but make no mistake, Reesa is an artist and her medium is life. If spiritual connection is the key to recovery, which I believe it is, then Reesa can be your guide. Only with deep rooted faith can we begin to see the everyday miracles that our Higher Power, whatever you may choose to call It, has in store for us. And while my spiritual path is just beginning, were it not for Reesa, I may never have found that path at all."
