Zayda Rivera

Zayda Rivera is a certified Reiki Master-Teacher, an intuitive tarot/oracle reader, and a meditation guide. After 20 years in media as a journalist, editor, and radio and television personality, Zayda wanted to dive deeper into her mindful living practices by becoming certified to facilitate energy healing sessions and teach and attune others to do the same. In 2019, Zayda launched “Mindful Living with Z” to promote wellness within vulnerable communities, communities of color, and more specifically for women of color. After becoming a Reiki Master-Teacher she quickly discovered that people from affluent communities typically knew what Reiki was because it is a service offered at their local spa or gym. But vulnerable communities, communities of color and women of color were often not informed of these beautiful healing modalities. Once she discovered this, her mission was clear. As a Puerto Rican, mother of three, Zayda knew her life’s purpose was to educate those that often need healing the most about various forms of healing modalities and mindful living. While Zayda makes it clear that Reiki and mindfulness are beautiful complements to one’s existing health care and not a replacement, she also informs that by working on the spirit body and keeping it healthy, many of the physical ailments that plague the communities she targets can be avoided. Zayda has dedicated her life to self-healing and teaching others how to awaken the healer within. After all, when we heal ourselves, we heal our family, loved ones, and our community.
