Whether you’re new to Reiki and other energy modalities, or an experienced practitioner who’s looking to learn more, our Special December Reiki Share is for you. It is 1 hour longer than our usual Reiki Shares.
We’ll begin with an introduction to a wonderful Hawaiian meditation practice known as Ho’oponopono. You’ll learn how to use this in your daily life to help you transform whatever challenges you face and to be grateful for the blessings life brings to you.
Following this, there will be a guided meditation, group Q & A/discussion and then table practice. As always, all proceeds go to charity.
Those of you who are new to energy therapies will receive both a Reiki session and learn the basics to give an energy treatment. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask any questions about energy work.
For those of you trained in Reiki at any level (or other energy healing method), come practice and hone your skills at our Special December Reiki Share working on Reiki and other energy practitioners as well as the general public. You’ll also receive a Reiki session and have your questions answered.
