Classes and Workshops for 2018

Dear Reiki friends,

I am back from travelling. What an invigorating trip we had to Portugal, Spain and Morocco.  We chose to hike the many trails available there and the off-season meant we were not over crowded. And now I am  ready to move forward.  This picture was taken in a beautiful garden near old Seville in Spain.  I love this tree and its enormous roots.  I love nature. 

Below is a brief overview of the classes and workshops I will be offering in 2018.  I hope you will at least give them all a quick look, at most look into the details.  They all have a slightly different focus.  At the end I have also included links to the websites of some people I connect with regularly. I love what they do and enjoy sharing that with you. 


    • Reiki 1 and 11 Classes
    • Reiki Learning and Practice Day

Reiki 1 and 11 Classes:

When:  Friday April 6 for the first level or degree and
Saturday April 7 for the 2nd level or degree.
I will be leading the class on Friday and Sheila Murphy will  lead the Saturday class.  Classes will run from 8:45 till 5:00
Ruth may assist with some teaching each day and mostly will host in her home at 690 4th Ave West, Owen Sound.
About the class:
I think you will find this to be an inspiring experience. The classes will be experiential with meditations as well as hands on experience. You will leave with the ability to offer Reiki to others, and perhaps more importantly at this point, you will have the opportunity to use Reiki for your own self care.
We would like to have 3 committed participants to be sure it will run. We already have 2. Our maximum number is 6.

 Reiki Learning and Practice Day

 When:  Monday May 7

Where:  Her Wellness on 2nd Ave East, Owen Sound

Workshop description:

Yes this is more than an Reiki Share day. You should have at least Reiki 1 and preferably Reiki 11 as a prerequisite. 

Having taken more Reiki courses over the past two years, I would like to share some new techniques and concepts with you. I will be attending a Reiki course in Vermont for four days in April.  I know there will be more from that experience that will add to the course.  As well I will share some techniques using drumming and sound. You will learn through doing as I explain while we share  Reiki energy together.


If you have taken Reiki 2 or the Reiki Master course with me sometime after January 2016, I will offer you a $20 gift off the regular price.

Regular cost for the day is $90.  Besides the experience itself, receive an e-book I am writing.  You will have juice and muffins on arrival too.  You can bring your lunch or go to one of the local restaurants close by.  For example The Bleeding Carrot.

Invite another person to join you and the cost will be 2 for $160.  And the $20 gift still applies for whomever attended a previous Reiki class within two years. 

A Nonrefundable deposit of $25 will hold your spot.  Maximum number is 10.

Contact me re how to best send your deposit.

Reiki Affirmations and Intentions for Fall and Winter

 When: Monday near end of September.  Likely on a Monday

Where: in Owen Sound.  Location to be announced


Some of you will remember  the workshop I ran last spring related to Intentions and Reiki.  Thank you so much for offering me that learning experience. I am redesigning that workshop and incorporating more discussion time while exploring possibilities together.

Although I will be using Reiki, Reiki is not a prerequisite for the course.  But I ask that participants be open to the concepts of the subtle energies and perhaps have experienced an energy treatment. 

On registration, you will receive an e-booklet  you can download in advance.  More to be announced later.


If you took the intentions workshop I led in 2017 spring, I will offer you a $20 gift off the regular price.

Regular cost for the day is $90.  Besides the experience itself, you will receive an e-book in advance as mentioned above.  And we will have juice and muffins on arrival.

Invite a new person to join you and the cost will be 2 for $150.The $20 gift still applies if you previously attended. 

A nonrefundable deposit of $25 will hold your spot.  Maximum number is 15.

Reiki in Nature

I love walking in nature and experiencing the connection I feel.  Nature offers me wisdom and often explanations metaphorically.  And so I am prompted to create a new workshop teaching some techniques for using my Reiki in the woods.  This workshop is still in its preliminary stages. As soon as I have a better idea of time and location, I will write more.

Advanced Reiki Techniques (ART) & Usui/Holy Fire11 Reiki Master:

Once again if there is sufficient interest I will offer this level of Reiki sometime in November.  The location will be somewhere in or near Owen Sound.


will be $900.  I am happy to arrange a payment schedule with you at no additional cost, (for example $100 per month). I will require a nonrefundable $200 deposit for this class. 

If you have already taken a Reiki Master class from me, you are welcome to retake it for $350.  Along with the experience, a retake gives you an intense meditative experience with the various experiences that are part of this class.

Your experience will also include:

      • Reiki manual
      • A booklet I will have written
      • Some refreshments and fruit at Breaks
      • A 20% gift certificate for any Reiki related workshops I offer till Jan 1 2020
      • Opportunity retake any levels of Reiki classes I have taught you for your practice, renewal and retreat purposes for half price.
      • $20 reduction on any Reiki session (currently $70 per session) or $50 reduction if you choose the package of 4 sessions for $230. for one year following the class.
      • Mentoring help related to teaching and setting up a Reiki practice over the next year if you wish to do so.
      • Possibly other learning opportunities.

Please contact me if you are interested in pursuing the Reiki Master level.  While this level can help you set up Reiki classes, it is also an opportunity to spend more time in Reiki meditations and to learn ways to become more self aware and practice self care.  Let’s talk.

Karuna/Holy Fire11  Reiki Master

Karuna Reiki is a Reiki level more advanced that the Reiki Master course.  In Karuna Reiki you learn 8 new symbols with specific healing connections that my clients have found to be very helpful in letting go of past traumas and moving forward.  

This will be my first Karuna Reiki CLass although I have used the Karuna symbols with several clients and for myself.

This level is also a three day course.  I would like to have four participants to run it.  The cost is also $900 but if you have taken the Usui Holy Fire11 Reiki class with me, You will have a gift of $75 toward the tuition fee.  I will require a nonrefundable $200 deposit for this class. 

The time and location will depend on when I have four participants.  It will likely be held on a Saturday, Sunday and Monday.   Please contact me if this is of interest to you and I will keep you informed.

There will be similar benefits as for the Usui/HolyFire11 Reiki Master class

Rhythmwood Soul Journey … Wendy Roman

I have known Wendy Roman for over ten years.  We have worked together in a variety of different ways over that time and I continue to have a growing admiration and respect for her.  She is a beautiful person, inside and out.  I love attending her Nia classes and we continue to support each other.  This year she is again offering her intensive soul journey experience.  It is more than a week-long intensive as she also has online process before and after.   Those who have taken it speak most highly of the personal gain from the experience.  If you let Wendy know of your interest in this program by Feb 28th, you could save yourself $200.

Nikaanaganaa Counselling and Learning Centre

Trish Meekins MSW

I met Trish Meekins a few years ago and have already learned from her style and capabilities. I plan to takemore of her workshops later this year.  I have copied the following off Trish Meekin’s website and hope you will explore her site to see the many things she offers.

The Health Squad … Dr Kara Dionisio ND

Dr Kara Dionisio ND has been my Naturopathic doctor for several years.  I have watched her expand how she offers her services and am delighted with how she has brought together a team of regulated health professionals to offer somewhat of an integrated health practice.  On her web site she writes: 

“We are a team of regulated health professionals with the clinical skills, knowledge and wisdom to support, educate and empower you to pursue health.  Welcome to healthcare that is actually about health. 


I hope you find this list of learning and growing opportunities helpful and inspiring.  Perhaps you will save it in some way on your computer or tablet, or print it off for yourself to keep in mind.  Please contact me with any questions you might have: or phone me at 519 371 1255.

I will be at the Health Fair on Saturday March 17th at the Bayshore Community Centre in Owen Sound.  Please drop by our Living Reiki table and meet us.

In love and light
