Reiki I & Animal Reiki Training: The Basics at Lily’s Legacy

Release Stress And Cultivate Peace And Wellness With The Help Of Animals

Reiki I will be taught at Lily’s Legacy Senior Dog Sanctuary, a volunteer run nonprofit organization based in Petaluma, CA. Founded in 2009, their mission is to provide a safe and loving home for senior large breed dogs who have been displaced from their homes and/or abandoned for any reason, until they are adopted or to remain at the sanctuary until they pass on.

This class is for animal people who want to deepen their relationships with animals and learn practical ways to heal the animals in their lives. Most Reiki I classes focus on Reiki for people, but Kathleen’s class is unique in its emphasis on Reiki for both humans and animals.
