Classes: 
How to Communicate with Animals -
The Basic Course 
 
The course offers simple practices to remember that we are all connected in the web of life. A primary practice of the course is guided meditation, which encourages and develops concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and a calm seeing of the true nature of things. These qualities are at the heart of animal communication. Guided meditations are short (approximately 20 minutes).
 
Day 1: Introduction to the essentials to get in touch with animals telepathically. Discover your blocks to communicating with animals and the levels of communication possible. Learn how to experience animals' perspectives and how you have already communicated telepathically with animals. Enjoy exercises and meditations that open your heart, increase your awareness and understanding of animals, and your receptivity to telepathic communication. Deepen your communion with all life.
 
Day 2: Learn how to quiet and focus your mind with animals. Practice opening the channel to communicating with animals and receive what they communicate telepathically in thoughts, images, impressions, feelings, and messages.

Classes: 
Reiki Training
Reiki is a meditative system of spiritual practice created by Mikao Usui in early 20th century Japan. The system of Reiki utilizes several elements that nurture balance and wellness:
  • The Reiki Precepts
  • Visualization Practices
  • Hands-on Practice for the Self and Others
  • Symbols and Mantras
  • Initiations/Reiju/Attunements
 
As we take a deeper look at each of these elements, we can see the heart of Reiki is to create a meditative state of mind for healing. Every part of the system of Reiki is ultimately about meditation and compassion as keys to healing.
