About Me


rebecca-sMy name is Rebecca Hay (Lightening Rattle Woman) I am Ojibwe from Curvelake First Nation. I am a traditional spiritual advisor, healer and pipe carrier.

I have been a traditional counselor for almost 30 years and I am a registered social worker. This has allowed me to run workshops that include suicide prevention, grief and loss.

I also run healing, sharing and teaching circles. I have been Cultural Support for our Elders, Brothers and Sisters for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearings in Victoria and Vancouver B.C.

I have done cultural sensitivity training for Vancouver Island Health Authority (VIHA) the RCMP and the local police forces here on Vancouver Island as well as numerous ministry for BC government. I have also worked in Calgary Corrections, Schools, Transition Houses, Treatment Centers.

My passion is working with people to build strong community through healthy living.

I have been a Reiki master for 19 years and a practitioner for 24 years now. I have taught across Canada and through the United States. I have certification in restorative justice and aboriginal coaching.

I am a Doula and recently I have become a licensee for Danielle Laporte’s Desire Mapping.

In Love and Respect.

Rebecca (Lightening Rattle Woman) Hay
