Can you believe that we are beginning a new year and a new decade? This year I am so grateful for all the amazing animals and people that I met through my classes and travel. I’d love to share with you my reflections on 2019.
I just got back from several days in Scotland with my family. What a beautiful country; we enjoyed every minute! Feels good to be back in the California sun, though 🙂
It was also such an honor to be able to spend time at Remus in Essex, England as well. It was wonderful sharing the Let Animals Lead® method with so many students, and seeing their faces light up as they watched the animals come forward and take charge of each session.
Congratulations to a brand new group of Animal Reiki Teachers! I had such a wonderful 3 days at Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary in Essex, England, spending time with the precious animals and getting to know these wonderful ladies. The beautiful skies were breathtaking! Plus it was like a SARA Directors reunion, being with SARA’s VP Leah D’Ambrosio and our East Coast Director, Kelly McDermott-Burns 🙂
I’m proud to say that one of the most unique things about the Let Animals Lead® method is its co-creative quality. Human Reiki methodology is a very practitioner-led way of practice. Even if it’s understood the space is shared between client and practitioner, the practitioner is responsible for all the movement, hand positions chosen or not chosen, etc. during all sessions. In the Let Animals Lead® method, because our primary concern is not practitioner protocol, but rather honoring animals’ choice, preference and freedom to express themselves, we take a step back and allow the animals to lead each session. When we do so, we give them the space to show us a new way forward in healing.
I‘m so excited to share with all of you, that I’ve received official trademark status for the Let Animals Lead® method of Animal Reiki!
This is an exciting step forward in acknowledging the unique methodology and philosophy this method utilizes to help animals in need.
I invite all those in my tribe who have taken this method to heart and who practice it, to share it with the world. I only ask that you always use the “®” and use the word “method” after it, plus please mention me.
For example, on your website or other public materials, you could say, if you have read my books but not studied with me: “I follow the Let Animals Lead® method of Animal Reiki as created by Kathleen Prasad.”
If you are my student, you could say, “I have been trained by Kathleen Prasad in the Let Animals Lead® method of Animal Reiki.”
If you have been trained by my students, you could say, “I have been trained (or “I am a practitioner or teacher”) in the Let Animals Lead® method of Animal Reiki, created by Kathleen Prasad.”
