I will be holding a Level One Reiki class on January 4 at my office in Old Town with a start time of 1pm. That is the first Saturday of 2014.
This class will assume you will do reading BEFORE we meet. The classtime itself we will focus on reiki stories, Q and A and demonstrations and of course the important ATTUNEMENT process and experience of the reiki energy.
I was attuned by a woman named Nancy Walker, who was a second degree lineage of Diane Stein. I am third degree and you will then, be fourth degree lineage. Diane wrote this book which I will ask you to purchase or read before becoming attuned:
Reiki is an ancient and profoundly simple system of laying on of hands healing derived from Tibetan Buddhism. In the West, Reiki has been kept highly secret for many years. ESSENTIAL REIKI presents full information on all three degrees of this healing system, including symbols and teaching information, most of it in print for the first time. By demystifying this ancient healing system, Essential Reiki is a ground-breaking bestselling book, with over 240,000 copies in print.
Taught from the perspective that Reiki healing belongs to all people, this book differs from anything else available on the subject. While no book can replace the directly received Reiki attunements, ESSENTIAL REIKI provides everything else that the healer, practitioner, and teacher of this system needs.
I was taught this type of reiki in 2000, so, it will be reference in our class. I will ask and expect you to read the first 50 pages of this book BEFORE January 4. We can go over any questions you might have about the material and I will briefly summarize the main points as a review only.
If you do a google search you can also find the pdf of the book online. Not sure if that is an "officially approved" digital offering but it is available in that way.
This class is for a LEVEL ONE attunement only. You will only need to read the first part of the book, and there will be no need to memorize symbols. If there is interest in a Level 2 class at some point later on in 2014 we can certainly hold one.
Please do RSVP early if you are planning on attennding as space will be pretty limited or I will need to find a larger space (the bigger room adjacent to my office might be available again as it was for the last meeting, but that room is available for lease so I cannot count on that)
Reiki is a wonderful, powerful addition to ANYONE's life. It can be used on people, animals, spaces, plants and objects. It can be used for healing, balance and protection. I, like Diane Stein herself, believe it should be made accessible and available to anyone who might have an interest or benefit. This includes children and if you have a child who is old enough to be interested and can sit through the 2-3 hour class they are welcome to attend.
The charge for the class will be 50.00 per student and I will be donating 1/2 of that amount from each to an animal resuce charity called LAPP.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
Happy Early Holidays to you all.
See you next year!
