Sunday, December 4th

10 am-3pm

Reiki is a gentle healing practice for yourself and others. The focus of Reiki I is Self-Care, Self-awareness, and Self-Mastery. 

In the class, we will be exploring how to create healthy energetic boundaries and work with your own energetic systems through the lens of the Chakra System. We will dive into how a Reiki Practice can aid you in cultivating more clarity, ease of movement, and how energy affects you and your surroundings.

You will leave your Reiki I attunement with an understanding of basic Reiki self-care hand placements, how to use the Reiki activation symbol, and a basic understanding of how to work with your Chakras system.
