Reiki For Self-Care
This four-hour class will teach you how to offer Reiki to yourself. Reiki is a holistic healing practice that is easily learned. The benefits of Reiki include relaxation, stress reduction, mental clarity, and improved sleep. Topics covered in this class include the history and nature of Reiki, the Reiki Principles and working with energy. Upon completion of this class, participants will be able to offer Reiki to themselves on a daily basis. (Please note: this class is not equivalent to a Level I Reiki class.)
