Hi, I’m Kathleen!
Even though I’ve been pioneering the field of Animal Reiki for over 22 years, have taught thousands of animal lovers this sacred healing art, written multiple books on the subject, authored the Code of Ethics for the profession and have created the world’s first and only nonprofit dedicated to helping rescued animals with Reiki, I’m also just a California girl, wife and mother to a teenager, dog and a horse. I’ve faced breast cancer twice in the past several years and am passionate about the ability of Animal Reiki to guide us through even the most difficult and dark times with courage and grace.
My role in this world is to help you:
- open your heart to animals, offering unconditional support
- support the self-healing process through peaceful, compassionate presence
- advocate for animal empowerment
- be a voice of kindness for animals in the world
Animal Reiki Source® is my teaching academy and home to my Let Animals Lead® method of Animal Reiki. I’ve written the world’s first and only comprehensive and professional Levels I, II and III Animal Reiki training manuals, that are only available to my students and my students’ students.
I’ve created the Let Animals Lead® method not just as a bold new approach to Animal Reiki, but also as a model for advocating for holistic healing that is animal-led and supports living with compassion and loving-kindness in the world. This method has its foundation in my human-focused Reiki training but uses a different and unique animal-centric approach where animals guide the sessions by their preferences and choices and are honored as spiritual teachers.
Shelter Animal Reiki Association (SARA) is my philanthropic, heart project and nonprofit organization, bringing the peaceful power of the Let Animals Lead® method to rescued animals and their caregivers around the world.
I’m here to help and serve, and so are you! Our planet desperately needs humans with a more compassionate perspective toward animals and nature. Whether your goal is help animals through meditation or to be an Animal Reiki practitioner or teacher, training with me will give you the tools you need to be the change you want to see in the world, for animals! I’m so glad you’re here, and I can’t wait to be a part of your healing journey with animals!
