Shoden: Animal Reiki 1 Class


Shoden and Animal Reiki 1 Class

This class will introduce you to Reiki and how you can share it with animals.

Reiki is translated as Universal Life Force Energy, and you will learn how to perform Reiki self-healing and how to share it with your animals.  

We will cover:

  • The nature of Reiki and how it relates to the healing of self and others
  • The Reiki Precepts and the nature of energy/chi
  • Hands-on Reiki self-treatment, including hand positions, and how to share with animals
  • Meditations that will help you ground and center, and prepare you to receive attunements for Reiki symbols in the Level II class
  • The difference in approach between Reiki sessions for people and sessions for animals
  • Ethics for working with animals and with people
  • Introduction to how to do Reiki with people (using a massage table), including hand positions and how to create a flow or sequence 
  • Introduce you to the concept of "being" Reiki with animals rather than "doing" Reiki to them

What you will receive:

  • A "Reiju" (blessing) and 4 attunements to better connect you to Reiki
  • A Reiki I manual (from Animal Reiki source) and my supplemental manual
  • A certificate to show your completion of the class
  • An opportunity to practice with animals (practice will depend on location of class)

The class will held on a Saturday and Sunday, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  Reiki I is best held at the home of someone who has animals, or can be at my home in Davis and include a field trip to Fat Kitty City sanctuary in the El Dorado Hills or other animal sanctuary.  Class could also be scheduled on a Saturday on consecutive weekends.

Cost:  $175, plus a materials fee of $30 for a beautiful spiral-bound manual written and designed by my teacher, Kathleen Prasad, and my supplemental manual. 

I offer a 10% discount to veterinarians and their staff, and the staff and volunteers at animal rescue organizations and shelters if there are at least 4 people in the class.

For the class to run, there must be a minimum of 2 students.  Maximum is between 8-10, depending on the space.
