You and I do not see things as they are. We see things as we are.

Ahimsa Yoga Studio, Oak Park IL

This was Danielle/Rain's "home" studio, where she taught many classes each week and regularly offered workshops and Gong Baths. It's a wonderful place with warm, welcoming people, great teachers, a beautiful big open space, and good energy.


This is THE best source for high-quality singing bowls and beautiful sculptures, etc. It is the website of Richard Rudis, who trained and certified Danielle/Rain in the use of the Tibetan Singing Bowls and Gongs.


The official website of the Dalai Lama, containing much wisdom, grace and guidance.

This is the only place Danielle/Rain knows of where they are working with the highest quality, energetic aspects of precious and semi-precious stones.

Heartmath Institute

This is an amazing place where they have done research and brought to light so much information about the heart and the heart-brain relationship. Our hearts really are "running the show" — NOT our brains; and Heartmath has the science to prove this. I utilize one of their emWave systems, to show my clients the efficacy of the sound and Reiki work. Take a few minutes and check out their website; your time won't be wasted.


Since 1944, Heifer International has worked to bring help, healing and hope to millions of impoverished families worldwide. Heifer International works in the areas of livestock and agriculture to develop programs that alleviate hunger and poverty. You donate your dollars and they gift goats, chickens, heifers, pigs, llamas, beehives, tree seedlings, etc to families all over the world.


Ho'oponopono is a Hawaiian system that heals oneself (and the world). Danielle/Rain has utilized Ho'oponopono with clients and herself extensively. It is proven, simple to use, highly effective, and only takes a few minutes.

International Association of Reiki Professionals – for all things Reiki. Good source for if you want to learn about Reiki, find a Reiki practitioner near you, and more.

Introducing Kids to Motorsports

Most kids are exposed to sports like baseball, soccer, and basketball at very young ages, but many are not immediately introduced to motorsports on a regular basis. Motorsports, however, are excellent ways for kids to both have fun and build character while competing against peers and mastering skills. Motorsports are also contactless, meaning they don't involve violence in the same way other sports often do.

Masaru Emoto

If you want to see the proof of how what we see and hear, how our thoughts, emotions, and more effect us — spend some time on this website. Dr. Emoto did research with water that captured the affects of all of these on the water. If you extrapolate from there, remembering that our bodies are a large percentage of water, then you'll appreciate what this study really means to us.

If you like to shop online (clothes) and don't like to shop in regular stores where you have to try things on, this is the website for you. I love it.

The Sports Car Club of America is the largest membership and sanctioning body for amateur (and some professional too) auto racing in the U.S. It provided the venues for me to have a lot of fun in the past — yes, I raced cars.

The Yoga Connection, Tucson

The Yoga Connection is a nonprofit [501(c)3] organization serving the Tucson community since 1987. This studio is dedicated to serving all those who seek to learn Hatha Yoga, meditation and the Kriya Yoga teachings. This is Danielle/Rain's yoga home in Tucson, where she offers a Gong Bath every month and sometimes teaches yoga classes too.

Tibetan Bowl

The Tibetan Bowl Sound Healing School, operated by Sound Energy Healing (Diane Mandle) in association with Sacred Sound Workshops (Richard Rudis) is an organization dedicated to the research, awareness of and training in the uses of the Tibetan Sacred Sound Instruments (singing bowls,gantas & tingshas) as therapeutic and transformational modalities. Danielle Dvorak is listed in the Practitioner's Directory here as she was certified by Richard Rudis, one of the school's founders – but she was trained and certified before the school was established.

A great source for Australian Eucalyptus, Tea Tree and other very high quality, organic essential oils. The V-Vax website also has a lot of excellent information on utilizing essential oils, background research, and more.

The best online encyclopedia.

Yoga Now, Chicago IL

Yoga Now is a wonderful yoga studio with a great variety of classes and talented teachers. This is where Danielle/Rain took yoga teacher training in 2011, with studio owner Amy Beth Treciokas — it was superb! I also offered Sound Baths with the Earth Gong here, at least once a month, and sometimes other workshops as well, for a numbers of years. If you're looking for a yoga studio in Chicago, I HIGHLY recommend Yoga Now.
