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

Ahimsa Yoga Studio

This is my "home" studio, where I teach at least 4 classes each week. It's a wonderful place with warm, welcoming people, great teachers, a beautiful big open space, and good energy. Of course I would say/write all of this because I'm there a lot. Not only do I teach my 4 classes, but I also lead a sound meditation with an Earth Gong every month, teach other workshops, and sometimes substitute for other teachers.

The BioMat via

The BioMat is available through HealthierHeat4U. If you order one, please tell them Danielle sent you. In case you're not familiar with the BioMat, it is made with Amethyst crystals and emits Far Infrared Rays and Negative Ions. If you've ever received Reiki or Sound from Danielle you were laying on a BioMat!


This is the website of Richard Rudis, who trained and certified Danielle in the use of the Tibetan Singing Bowls and Earth Gong.


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

This is the only place I know 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.

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.

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.


This is a unique source for the best supplements (I use them) and other healthy lifestyle support systems.


Unfortunately, Rio Caliente closed this past July and we're not sure when it will open again. Rio Caliente is a spa in Mexico that has played an important role in my life for the last 15 years. I have gone there on vacation all this time and started working there in 2006, offering Tibetan Sacred Sound therapy, teaching yoga, and also teaching an aquafit class.

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 provides the venues for me to have a lot of fun ?yes, I race cars.

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 Engstrom 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

Yoga Now is a wonderful yoga studio with a great variety of classes and talented teachers. This is where I took my most recent yoga teacher training, with studio owner Amy Beth Treciokas ?it was superb! I also offer Sound Baths with the Earth Gong here, at least once a month, and sometimes other workshops as well. If you're looking for a yoga studio in the city, I HIGHLY recommend Yoga Now.
