This training includes two days of exploring women's issues and the path to spiritual healing.
 
Day one focuses on Healing Women in a yoga therapy context.

In addition to building awareness, this workshop will introduce chanting, imagery, meditations and exercises to awaken, honor and explore the feminine divine for deeper self-acceptance, self-love and authentic connections to our existence.

Reiki Level 1
Nov 8, 2020 - Nov 8, 2020
 

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.
