Whether through individual sessions or classes this amazing ancient healing art is imbued with love and light!
What is Reiki?
Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is an ancient Japanese healing art that encourages the natural energies that are around and within us to come into balance. Like the energies that help a plant to grow, blossom and develop Reiki provides a space for our mind, body and spirit to do the same. When our body is in a state of total relaxation it has the opportunity to heal itself, Reiki promotes this way of being and increases the energy within us that is often depleted through stress, trauma and illness. Enhancement of health and reduction of stress encourages the body, mind and spirit to come into a state of harmony and retain a sense of peace within.
Reiki is beneficial for relieving many symptoms that are associated with headaches (whether migraine or stress related), PMS & Menopause symptoms, Depression and Stress, Injury due to accident or surgery, Arthritis, Respiratory illnesses, MS and works exceptionally well to relieve the pain and nausea associated with Chemotherapy and Radiation. It balances, refreshes, rejuvenates and restores!
A Reiki Master since 1996, I follow the traditional Usui method of Reiki in both the sessions shared with clients and classes shared with students. The practice of Reiki has become a daily way of living gently and lovingly upon the earth and is just a natural part of sharing love with my family (including pets), friends, clients and the world around me. One benefit I find to Reiki is the ability (after taking the 2nd degree) to send Reiki to others. On the rare occasions that I do watch the news and witness some of the tragedies that are reported locally and around the world I am able to send Reiki out to hopefully help and heal those that are injured from earthquake, war, tsunami, etc. and I am honoured, that in some small way, I can share the gift that is Reiki. The comment often made is “you seem so calm” and Reiki would be the reason for that sense of peace within.

REIKI Level 3 ‘Personal Mastery’ ~ Advance Reiki Training Saturday, August 31st – 8:30 to 5:30 plus a Reiki Grid creation evening on Saturday Sept. 7th, 4pm start (there is some preparation work to complete and submit prior to the class date, early registration is recommended)
This advanced study of Reiki energy focuses on the practitioner’s connection with Universal energy both conceptually and energetically. Reiki energy is explored through the spirit of oneness and is beneficial whether you plan to continue to the Master/Teacher level or not. It will improve and strengthen the flow of Reiki energy for yourself and assist in developing confidence as a Reiki practitioner. Taking the journey inward to reach and heal our own core is essential to advancing our sharing of Reiki energy. Students often find this level to be one of the biggest steps and an empowering experience in their personal sense of deep inner peace. Prior to the class are a series of assignments intended to be supportive as well as informative to both the practitioner and the teacher, helping both of us to develop further insight into your understanding of Reiki. There are no wrong answers to the assignment questions as we all practice Reiki in an individual way. Reiki assignments will be given upon paid registration.
During the Reiki Class you will
- Be given the Master Symbol which facilitates unlocking the full potential of Reiki Energy and assists to greatly increase healing
- Learn meditative techniques to develop a clearer channel of life force energy, expand consciousness, strengthen the mind and become one with the Master Symbol
- Take the Chakra balancing techniques taught in Reiki 2 and learn to clear and re-energize those that are “stuck”
- Learn how to clear, energize and imbue crystals with Reiki energy
- Learn how to bring Crystals, Aromatherapy and Colour Therapy into your practice to enhance Reiki energy
- Learn different methods of creating sacred space for Reiki practice and sessions through participating in setting up the space for the day’s class
- Have the opportunity to practice what you’ve learned through sharing a session and to also experience the increased energy through receiving a session
- Take home notes with information shared from various Reiki Masters regarding the 3rd degree, the Master Symbol and ways in which to use it, information about chakra clearing, crystals, aromatherapy and colour therapy
- Receive a Reiki 3 kit that will include crystals, essential oils and a music CD for use in developing quiet sacred space as you delve into your inner Reiki practice
- Ongoing support in the 6 months following through email or phone sessions.
