Description: This class is for people who love animals, who want to deepen their relationships with animals and learn practical ways to heal the animals in their lives. The class focuses on Reiki for animals, which involves meditation with animals from a short distance away, and inviting the animals into the healing space. Reiki for animals is only hands-on if the animal requests it by placing his or her body in the practitioner’s hands. Animal Reiki is a gentle and non-invasive practice in which the animals control the amount of healing energy they receive. It relieves stress and promotes healing for pets, shelter animals, farm animals, feral cats and wild animals. For healthy animals, Reiki helps maintain their health, enhances relaxation and provides emotional peace. For ill animals, Reiki complements all veterinary and holistic treatments, can speed up recovery with less pain, and reduces the side effects of chemotherapy. For dying animals, Reiki provides relief from pain and anxiety, easing the transition for the animal and the animal’s people.
The class also teaches Reiki Level One for people, including techniques for self-treatment, and hand positions for hands-on treatment of people. This class is suitable for beginners, and for practitioners of all levels of Reiki for humans. The traditional Japanese techniques taught in this class are different than Western Reiki techniques usually taught in North America. The Japanese name for Reiki Level One is Shoden.
Location: The class will take place at Michelle’s rural home near Princeton, Ontario, where students will work with each other and with cats and chickens. Both days involve working with animals, and include time for practice, discussion and feedback.
Class Length: 2 days (14 hours of instruction). This class is taught on two consecutive days, from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm both days, with a half-hour lunch break.
Class Materials: Students will receive a class manual and a Shoden (level one) animal reiki certificate.
Resitting: Students who have previously taken this class with the same teacher may resit the class as a refresher for a reduced fee.
