Anyone can learn and use Reiki. This gentle hands-on modality utilizes the power of universal life force energy to harmonize the energies of the body. It is a gift anyone can use daily to instill deep relaxation. When deeply relaxed, the body can begin to use its own inner resources to reduce stress and anxiety and to find a sense of inner peace. As the healing power of energy medicine has become more and more recognized, Reiki has become an important contribution to Integrative Medicine. It has been well researched and is used in hospitals and healing settings throughout the world. With a special emphasis on self-treatment, this is a two-part class in the gentle energy balancing modality of Reiki. Students will learn the history of Reiki, identify hand positions for treating self and others, receive attunements to the Reiki energy and practice hands-on sessions. Those attending both classes will receive Reiki 1 certification.

Dates and Time:
·   October 8 – 1 – 4 p.m.
·   October 29 – 1 – 4 p.m.

There is a $150 fee to participate in this 2-part Reiki 1 Class. Participants attending both classes will receive Reiki attunements and a Reiki 1 Certificate.
