Two Day Class - Saturday, May 11 and Saturday, May 18
Both days are held at the Congregational Church of Harvard, 5 Still River Road, Harvard, MA 01451
This class is based on the Japanese traditional teachings of Reiki. This class is about helping yourself to heal and to develop -- to find balance, peace, and well-being using the system of Reiki and sharing and offering that peace, openness, and love with others in your circle of life -- animal and human.
The first day of class is the heart of the system of Reiki. We will discuss the history of Reiki, and the What, How, When, Where and Why of Reiki. You will learn and practice tools of the system of Reiki -- the Reiki precepts, Japanese techniques and meditations, hand positions for self treatment and for treating family and friends. Four (4) Reiki attunements will be given.
The second day of class we will review guidelines and ethics for working with animals. We will take lots of time to practice various techniques and breathing meditations with canines.
There will be lots of practice time on both days giving you the opportunity to feel and experience the Reiki energy.
A manual and certificate are given.
Maximum number of students is 10. There is a $50 non-refundable deposit.
***************Friendly, easy-going canines that get along well with humans and other dogs are needed for our practice on May 18. They need to be able to settle after we begin class, either on a lead next to their human or in a safe space such as a crate. Of course there will be potty and short walk breaks for our wonderful canine teachers! Please email Lisa Ruthig if you are able to bring a dog.***********************
