Reiki: Reiki helps us reduce our anger, worry, fears, and anxieties and opens the door to more love and compassion in our lives. By practicing the system of Reiki for ourselves, our lives will transform physically, mentally, emotionally, and even spiritually. When our lives transform, the lives of the people and animals around us automatically start to change as well. During this class, you will learn meditations and techniques to start to heal yourself and to practice with others for their own healing. Reiki is commonly known as a hands-on healing modality, but you'll find during this class, that it is so much more!
