Level one Reiki training is the foundation for understanding what Reiki is and how it can be applied to enhance and support personal health. The session begins with an introduction to the energetic body and the healing potential of Reiki. We look at the role of intention and purpose in thoughts and karmic disposition. We next explore the history of Reiki and the founders. We learn the 5 precepts of Reiki and traditional Reiki meditation. A series of energy exercises help us to feel & understand energy better. Students will be attuned to level one Reiki. After the attunement, we progress through a series of Reiki exercises to practice, beginning with the Reiki Bear Project (injecting teddy bears with Reiki healing and light - these bears are later donated to children's hospitals and disadvantaged youth programs as a Karmic project reminding us of our role as healers and symbolizing how we must all share our light where it is needed). We move up to energy exchanges with plants and discuss Reiki for animals, and then we progress to self healing practices, touching lightly upon traditional Reiki share activity. This program covers Usui reiki systems, reviewing both defined hand positions and the intuitive method.

Guided Nature Therapy Walk
Have you ever wished that you could spend less time “in your head”, and instead enjoy that feeling when one or more of your senses comes alive in a positive, relaxing natural setting? Do you want to be more productive in your daily life? Would you prefer to get better sleep and be less stressed? If your answer is yes to any of those things, or you just enjoy being out in Nature, then a forest therapy walk is exactly what you need!
Forest therapy originated with the Japanese practice of shin rin yoku, which translates as “forest bathing”. Forest therapy is not a hike, nor is it focused on arriving at any particular destination. It is not a contest, so it’s not about how fast you walk or how far you go. Forest therapy involves immersing yourself in Nature through a nice, leisurely walk that offers a very particular guided experience. You will be invited to disconnect from the stress and fast pace of your work and daily life, and instead reconnect with your senses in a way that provides both mental and physical benefits. Through a series of guided invitations, you will be offered the perfect opportunity to slow down and explore the space around you, getting to know the natural beings who are sharing that space with you.
Some of the many known benefits of forest therapy are: decreased stress, decreased anxiety and depression; improved concentration, better sleep, and overall feelings of well-being. Forest therapy has also been proven to improve cardiovascular and metabolic health, lower blood pressure, and boost the immune system. All this from spending a beautiful day out in Nature with your own personal guide!
Our walk will conclude with a special tea ceremony. All supplies will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own drink or snack to enjoy during the tea ceremony as well. * Please let us know about any food allergies you may have.
