This will be a 2-day, 16-hour training, held from Saturday September 28th (10am - 6pm) through Sunday September 29th (10am - 6pm), taught by Meghan Hays and Tim Vanderkamp, Reiki Level 3 Masters.
Tim and I are hosting Reiki 1 at our home in Uptown New Orleans, so spots will be very limited: just 8 participants. That means you'll get lots of practice-time, plenty of time for Q&A, and great hands-on experience. The investment is $300/person.
*So many of my Marma, Reiki, and Ayurveda clients have asked me how to keep their energy clear in between sessions, and this is the PERFECT opportunity to learn how to do this for a healthier, happier, clearer you. I recommend that everyone attend Reiki 1 for their own self-care and healing.
What is Reiki? Reiki is the practice of using your hands to clear, move, and un-block energy on your body or the bodies of others. This Reiki 1 training is for anyone and everyone, interested in keeping their energy levels balanced, clear, and consistent. Reiki 1 is primarily a self-practice in which you'll uncover and explore your own energetic body. You'll learn to use the practice of Reiki to feel more balanced, calm, and stable in your everyday life.
What you'll learn: We'll teach you all about the subtle, or energetic, body, exploring the chakra, nadi, marma, and kosha systems from yogic and Ayurvedic perspectives. You'll also learn how to call upon your spiritual guides, ancestors, guardian angels, and any and all beings of love and light to help you on your spiritual journey and aid you in your Reiki practice. We'll explore many methods of clearing your own energy body from negative thoughts, feelings, and attachments, such as visualizations, mudras, and of course, the practice of Reiki (hands-on healing) on your own body.
You will leave Reiki 1 with the tools to clear your own energy and work on healing your own energetic body. You may also practice on friends and family members, as long as you do not charge for your Reiki services.*
*Note: This training is the first part in a three-part course/training (Reiki 1, Reiki 2, and Reiki 3), following the Usui Reiki lineage and tradition. Traditionally, after attending Reiki 1, you are only to practice on yourself and others, free of charge. After attending Reiki 2, you are given a blessing to begin charging others for your Reiki services. After attending Reiki 3, you will be trained to offer Reiki 1, 2, and 3 trainings on your own.
In order to attend Reiki 2 with us in the future, you will be required to record 20 hours of practice on yourself and 10 hours of practice time on others, along with a two-page, typed essay, describing your experiences in practicing Reiki on yourself and others.
We will offer more Reiki 1 sessions, most likely before we offer Reiki 2, and we hope to offer all three trainings, Reiki 1, Reiki 2, and Reiki 3, within the next 6-8 months. Please let us know if you are interested in attending Reiki 1 in the future but can't make it this time, or if you've already attended Reiki 1 or 2 and would like to attend Reiki 2 or 3 with us in the future. It's nice to know what kind of audience there is out there for these trainings.
