ISD Oneonta offers a strenuous program of study, experience, and mentorship to become qualified to be a Certified Healer in any of the Institute for Spiritual Development Centers in the U.S.   Our Healing Certification Program was put together by Rev. Diana Friedell and Reiki Master Healer Jackie Madden, in consultation with ISD- Sparta and ISD- Washington,DC. Our Energy Healers serve as chair healers in the first Church Service of every month,  

Our first certified Energy Healers were "Sanctioned" after having challenged and met the standards of the Healing Certification Program, by having years of study & experience in their own healing practice.

Kristen Diana Niles is an Empathic Intuitive Healer, certified in (Traditional) Usui Reiki level 1:  For as long as she can remember people have sought her out in times of crisis for a compassionate listening ear and a shoulder to cry on.  Kristen’s kind heart and open mind attract may people seeking sound advice on both professional and personal matters.  Her journey through the challenges of this life have brought her to a path and calling as a Spiritual Energy Healer.  Kristen’s inner strength perseveres and she strives to turn the lessons of her life into a positive force to help others.  She began her formal training in 2016 with Jeanne Sands, Usui Reiki Master, formerly of Delhi and will be attaining the second level in the Spring of 2018. Her practice is growing and she is eager to learn and study many other modalities.  In addition to being a Sanctioned Healer with The Institute for Spiritual Development, she is currently enrolled in the Ministerial Program.

Alexandra Sutton-Pyle:  If you know Ally, you know you are working with one of God's Angels of healing.  While working as an EMT, Ally witnessed the spirit of a young child leave his body following a tragic accident at a parade.  The shock of that experience opened Ally up to a spiritual calling to heal others, and so she began her training.  15 years as an EMT and Nurse, plus training as a Reiki Master AND an Integrated Energy Therapy Master-Instructor developed her profound gifts.  Ally also discovered her abilities to see and feel intuitively, and uses that gift to inform her healing gifts. She is a certified "Fairyologist" through the Doreen Virtue program, and also regularly attends advanced trainings at Lily Dale. She is a sanctioned healer with the Institute for Spiritual Development in Oneonta, NY where she participates in the Sunday "healing chairs" once a month as a volunteer.  Working with Ally is a profound experience you won't soon forget.

Diane M Foster

Master Energy Worker

Sanctioned Healer at the Institute for Spiritual Development

Diane is certified as a Master Practitioner in both Usui and Karuna Reiki® and has also obtained her certification as an Integrated Energy Therapy® Master Instructor. She has studied Jin Shin Jyutsu® and is also a certified Metatronic Healing® Practitioner. She is a member of both the International Association of Reiki Professionals® and the Association of Professional Metatronic Healers. She is also an Ordained Minister.

Through receiving Master Attunements in the various disciplines of energy, Diane has developed a Signature Energy Session utilizing all modalities she has studied. This allows her to intuitively feel and remove energy blocks within a client’s energy field, feel and realign energy flows that are out of alignment as well as to see their energy pattern (SoulDNA).

Each session is unique to every client as she connects with their spirit guides, angels, ascended masters, totem animals, past lives and more for the healing of their whole being.

Her philosophy is a simple one...

“To do all things for the highest and greatest good of all, and to try to balance my human ego with my spiritual self so they are in harmony. These things I strive for each and every day.”
