Angel performed energy work on my 3 month old son who was experiencing colic and hypersensitivity. She did Reiki on both of us during her visits. As a new Mom, it can be stressful to have someone come into your home while your baby is screaming and crying. However, Angel made me feel calm and relaxed. I felt comfortable and safe with her approach. She is a wonderful listener and tapped into the energy I was already experiencing. She gave me tools to support my son in his journey and continued to check in with me with so much dedication and compassion. My son and I are doing much better and I will continue to lean into positive energy as I face the future challenges of motherhood.

When I had my second baby, I decided to definitely get a doula. I had heard about Angelique from my friend. From the moment she came into my home, I felt at ease. Her gentle and encouraging nature, put me at ease and helped with my post-birth emotional state. She was also able to help my older daughter and husband to feel integrally a part of welcoming Daniel into this new version of our family. Angelique seemed to know what needed to be done and what I needed before me even having to ask her. I don’t have a sister, but Angelique felt like a intuitive older sister and her knowledge and emotional support helped me tremendously in feeling calm, confident and rested during this big transition in our lives.

We are an intentionally slow paced family, and it takes a lot for me to sign my son up for an after-school activity. But I couldn’t sign him up fast enough for Forest School! I believe that a strong connection with nature is absolutely essential to a child’s well-being (actually, everyone’s well-being if we get right down to it), and Forest School does so much to foster that connection. Exploring in the woods is a perfect antidote to a long day spent behind a desk at school, and my son comes home dirty, happy, centered and refreshed! He truly loves his time at Forest School and we know that it is nourishment to his body, mind and soul. Thank you, Angelique for the wonderful gift you’re offering our children!

My 11 year old son, Harry had an amazing afternoon at Forest camp with Angelique. He loved the adventure of exploring the forest with kids of all different ages. I was thrilled for him to have time outdoors. As a boy in his first year of middle school, there's so much human, social stress that kids his age encounter. It was wonderful to know he was connecting with nature, others and himself. The whole experience was educational, and really fun! He can’t wait to do it again!
I truly believe that Persephone's Hero program is teaching my 7 year old an array of tools that is helping her understand the nature of her feelings, building empathy and developing a strong sense of self. By working with a wide range of materials, using art and learning about different rituals my child is able to explore and experience a deep connection with mother earth, herself and the people around her. Angelique Kenney creates a beautiful safe space that allows this to happen.

When my son is spending time at Forest School, it feels like he is finally getting a moment in the day to be doing exactly what a boy his age should be doing. Angel's creativity and sense of exploration offer the children interesting, educational, and exciting ways for them to get to know nature and their place in it. My son Luke LOVES the time he spends in the woods and never tires of exploring, building, and discovering with Angelique. I see a difference in his behavior when he spends time in the forest, and I'm so grateful someone is offering an opportunity to make that a regular part of his routine.

Just the other day I had the pleasure and honor to receive a reiki session from Angel Kenney. I had experienced craniosacral therapy before but never reiki. The treatment I received from Angel was amazing. Angel has that otherworldly magic touch both with her hands and also with her energy. She has incredible intuition and just a very calming and healing presence. Angel put me in such a deep relaxed state. I had a headache upon my arrival and after my session both the headache and the daliy build of stress was completely gone. I highly recommend Angels expertise. I can only imagine that regular reiki sessions with Angel would provide tremendous healing and calming benefits. I'll definitely be going back for more!

There are so many benefits to practicing conscious/peaceful parenting, yet it’s also so challenging. I’m grateful to have Angelique Kenney as an ally on this path. She deeply understands and supports parents' desires to nourish kids emotionally, creatively and physically as they grow. I’m so glad my older daughter took Angelique’s Persephone’s Hero class, which offers a space that is lacking in typical kid-centric settings. This magical environment she creates offers a young person the chance to positively process the big, sometimes hidden emotions that well up in the 7-9 year old years. Angelique’s class was such a bright, affirming experience each week during the daily slog of an East Coast January.
