TreAsurer: Zhanna Korovina

Zhanna was born in Russia and moved to Canada in 1998. In 2017 she was introduced to Getaway Centre  and learned more about world of spirit. Zhanna always believed in afterlife; her mother was a spiritual healer with a passion to help children. Zhanna decided to pursue the same path and as a first step she got her 1&2 degree Reiki with Claudia Orr (winter 2018) and became a member of Wednesday's "sitting on the power" circle in Gateway Center. 

While studying and researching about spiritual world through workshops, circles and Getaway community,  Zhanna decided to continue her study, and help others who wants to know about spiritualism. Zhanna is grateful to find the path that led her to the Gateway Spiritualist Centre and she is honored to be useful and support Gateway's philosophy and ideas.
