After many requests and much heartfelt contemplation, Kathleen has thoughtfully created an 8-week online version of her popular and life-changing in-person Level 1 course.
Kathleen’s vast experience, having taught over 60 in-person Level 1 Animal Reiki classes over the past 16 years in various shelters and sanctuaries around the U.S., makes her uniquely qualified to teach you, in an online and interactive format, the important foundations and ethics you need to make Animal Reiki a lifelong practice. You won’t find Kathleen’s Let Animals Lead® method anywhere else, unless you train in person with one of her teachers!
What you’ll learn:
The traditional Japanese meaning of Reiki and how it relates to the healing of self and others
Traditional practices of Joshin Kokyu Ho and Seishin Toitsu, and how to use them with animals
The Reiki Precepts, and meditations for working with them with animals
Hands-on Reiki self-treatment, and how to incorporate animals into these sessions
Overview of the Animal Reiki Practitioner Code of Ethics and discussion of its importance when approaching animals with Reiki sessions
Tried and true methods for sharing Reiki with animals and people together
Techniques for grounding, expansion and connection to help you become an animal magnet to even the most sensitive animals!
Kathleen’s groundbreaking philosophy of “being” Reiki “with” your animals, rather than “doing” Reiki “to” them
What you’ll receive:
Eight 60-75 minute teaching sessions via webinar, recorded in both video and audio formats (Each meeting also includes a guided meditation, distant attunement and time for discussion.)
Daily practice assignments and weekly notes and resources to guide your journey
A free copy of Kathleen’s newest e-book, Healing Virtues: Transforming Your Practice Through the Animal Reiki Code of Ethics
A beautiful certificate to show your accomplishment and official certification. This certificate may serve as a prerequisite to Kathleen’s Level 2 in-person courses.
An invitation to join SARA (Shelter Animal Reiki Association) as a Practitioner member
An invitation to join a private FB group for Kathleen’s Level 1 online graduates, to stay connected with other like-minded animal lovers
Students will need to be able to participate live at scheduled times (attendance required at a minimum of 7 of 8 sessions to receive certification). You must be able to connect via video (preferably) or audio on the webinar platform Zoom.
Students will need to be able to download and open pdf documents in order to read the weekly lessons and assignments. All assignments must be shared either verbally during class, or if that is not possible, written up and sent to Kathleen via email.
Students must have animals to practice with daily. A variety of animals is preferable (ask neighbors and friends to support you!), but 1 or 2 of your own, at the very minimum, is needed.
Students must commit to 10-20 minutes/day minimum of daily meditation practice during the course (weekly assignments will be given). The main purpose of this requirement is to help you experience the power of Reiki practice in a personal way, thus giving you the foundation you need to build a lifelong Animal Reiki practice. With dedication and commitment, Animal Reiki can heal and transform your life, as well as the lives of the animals you love!
Healing Experience from a Student:
I just wanted to share this while it is still so fresh. I have been dealing with some significant chronic pain in my neck/shoulder area. It has been getting increasingly worse over the last several weeks.
Anyway, after the meditation/Reiju during class today, I sat up and noticed that the pain had all but left that region! I was so surprised by this feeling (or lack thereof) that I had to move my head from side to side to make sure this was real! I also noticed that after doing the hara breathing this ball of uneasiness in my gut was no longer weighing me down either! Just an overwhelming sense of calm and peacefulness.
The pain isn’t completely gone but on a scale of 1-10 it was a 15! Now it’s 2-3! I am truly blessed to be able to attend your class and so grateful that you even offer it!
