Reiki 1 or 2 Attunement
Sunday, December 17th at 12:30pm

I believe that you are your own best healer, that deep down within you hold the wisdom to heal your body, to heal your heart. In receiving Reiki Attunements we are embarking on a brave journey into the soul, uncovering stories, beliefs, behaviors that are no longer nourishing, reaching to the root of physical pain, and clearing past wounds and traumas as we calm the mind in service of clear communication with Self and Source.

* $125 : $50 deposit required as there are only 10 spaces : Venmo @angelmcan2 -or- PayPal to reserve your space

*Bring 5 crystals, stones, or small special items, paper/pen, + water bottle

* Please refrain from consuming alcohol + substances at least 24 hours prior to the Attunement

In this workshop, we will light the lamp of amplified Reiki energy for the practice of self-healing. Our session begins with a Restorative Reiki, a meditative yoga practice marrying the breath with gentle restorative asana to support the release of old stories, traumas and dis-ease held deep within so that we might create space to receive the first Reiki symbol. We will then cover Reiki concepts, including the history of Reiki, a description of the Cho Ku Rei symbol and practice techniques.

In the second level we focus on emotional and mental healing, amplifying your Intuition to send Reiki at a distance, Traditionally, this level focuses on sending healing across physical distances; this will be a part of the training, however, more focus will be given to your ability to send Reiki to other times, to heal earlier versions of your Self and to others.

Our time together will end with individual Attunement for each attendee and a hands-on group practice.

About Reiki:
Reiki, or 'Universal Energy,' is a hands-on energy healing technique benefiting the physical body as well as the mind and the spirit. Using this modality, the practitioner acts as a channel through which Source energy flows to that which is in need of clearing and uplifting. With regular use of the Reiki symbols, practitioners report a shifting of the physical body toward a greater sense of health as well as a shifting of the emotional body toward balance and greater compassion.

Attunements are often accompanied by great life transitions, as the Reiki energy supports the clearing of past wounds and traumas, opening a path toward a wider understanding of purpose met with intention. Reiki is the sharing of abundant love and healing from Source energy, the loving presence that is always ours to receive, the well of support and love that is infinite and pure.

The new year will soon be upon us, that time of year when we begin to consider a new resolution, a letting go of old habits and patterns or perhaps an intention to start something new. How often have you set a resolution only to find a few days or weeks into the year it has already fallen away?

Join me in this first week of the new year to Root your Resolution in Reality. In this five hour workshop, participants will be guided through practices to clarify and solidify intention into action.

Our time together will include a combination of yoga asana practice, meditation, mantra, discussion, journaling and a take-home self-practice. It all begins with intention, and flows through repetition. Let’s begin a new chapter together as we Resolve to Evolve.
