Special Perks of Kathleen’s Reiki 3 Class:
 A special Reiki lineage: Graduates of this class are certified as Reiki 3 Practitioners and Teachers in the Usui Reiki Ryoho lineage, with a specialty in animals. 
    An ethical approach: You won’t find our methods anywhere else! Our unique approach with animals is gentle and based in meditation, where animals always lead. You’ll learn to focus inward on your own state of heart and mind, rather than focusing on what’s “wrong” with the animal and then “sending” Reiki mentally to problems. 
 A professional and extensive curriculum to use: All graduates have permission to use Animal Reiki Source manuals to teach Levels 1-3 Reiki/Animal Reiki. You will not find Animal Reiki manuals of this high caliber anywhere else!
 An invitation to become a SARA Teacher: Graduates of this special program are also invited to join SARA at the Teacher level. SARA is a one-of-a-kind charitable organization with hundreds of members around the world. You’ll be able to join this amazing community of animal lovers at the highest level of Teacher!

    What a remarkable experience all around for me! Kathleen Prasad is a masterful, eloquent and empowering teacher! Our group of incredible women supported one another along with the many animals living at CARE. Letting animals lead the way in sharing Reiki is key and we experienced that first hand. Meditating with power animals rocks! My heart and mind are more open because of the animals way of being during our Reiki sessions together. I truly came away inspired and empowered to teach Animal Reiki abundantly throughout my community, in shelters, sanctuaries and beyond. Many thanks to the CARE team, SARA and most certainly these devoted leaders, Kathleen Prasad & Leah D’Ambrosio! I highly recommend taking this experiential training!

    A life-changing experience. The learning and growth over these three days was so much more than expected or imagined. An amazing experiential journey into “Being Reiki” & “Letting the Animals Lead”. Meditating with the animals at CARE, Kathleen’s & Leah’s guidance and support, and all of the beautiful hearts in the class made this an experience I will never forget. My meditations have deepened and I learned so much from the animals. I am filled with gratitude for the huge hearts, human and animal and the healing shared. It was an honor to be in the presence of the animals at CARE and all of the wonderful ladies in the class. Can’t wait to do it again!
