Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) means the universal life force energy that resides within and around all living things. A Reiki treatment is a gentle, non-invasive yet powerful healing technique that effects the whole person by enhancing the natural power of the body and mind to move toward greater balance and harmony.
Reiki level I teaches the student the basics of this healing practice. The focus is on daily self-practice so you can bring balance into your life. In this practical training students learn the history of Reiki, its applications and how to give hands on treatments to themselves and others. Reiki energy is activated by receiving attunements. Most students find the first degree Reiki practice to be complete and it is all they need. No prior experience is required. Reiki treatments and practice is beneficial to people of all ages and backgrounds.

Through self-hypnosis we increase our health, strength and well-being. We align our thoughts with our most beneficial vision. We hone our will to achieve our goals. Self-hypnosis enhances our personal work and our work in the world. We change our patterns “creating images in subconscious mind”, the feeling mind, in order to heal ourselves and create the new out of the old. Note: The study and practice of self-hypnosis requires one to be clear-headed. Please do not use alcohol or drugs before class.
