Sunlight

A day to appreciate all women !

What a beautifully sunny day today. The predominant white snow reflects the bright light back up making the need for sunglasses greater. Could even be blinding if we are not careful.

We often say things like “the sun is shining today” or “the sun is out”. But In reality the sun is always there shining it’s light. Our inner bright light is also always there. Sometimes it is shining brightly and sometimes it is hidden or partially hidden by clouds. our clouds. Our anger, frustrations, worries, concerns and even our ego.

The sun does not determine where to shine more, or less. Other factors may affect that, but the sun is a constant. The sun does not make rules, or conditions for its brightness or warmth. The sun does not judge who needs how much sun. Our light, our Reiki light is available as long as we choose to remove the clouds and other obstacles that block its light and warmth. Learning Reiki helps us do that.

Why Learn Reiki

Many people think you learn Reiki to be able to set up a Reiki practice.  While this may be so for some, it is my experience that the first step and perhaps the main reason for learning Reiki is for your own self  care.  Consider it a means for personal and spiritual development.

This message is intended to give you some of the basic information about the classes.  In the next few months.

Below you will see information related to:

Reiki Level 1 (Shoden)
Reiki Level 11 (Okuden)
Reiki Master (Shinpiden)
Reiki Learning and Practice Day

I prefer at least four people registered for a class. Please let me know of your interest.

Reiki 1 (Shoden) is a 12 hour course.  Sheila Murphy will be sharing the teaching of this course.   We will teach it  in three  four-hour segments.from 9 am till 1 pm on June 7, 14 and 21.
This class is for you  if you have not taken a Reiki class before but perhaps you have experienced Reiki from a practitioner and would like to learn how to use it yourself.  Reiki can be very helpful in many ways and in this class, besides learning how to practice it, you will also learn about many ways it is possible to use it for yourself in  your own self-healing and spiritual growth.  Continual practice is important in developing your sensitivity.

Full Cost is $200.  However if you pay in full by March 17 the cost is only $150.   It includes a non refundable deposit of $75 as well as reading materials and a journal.

The class is offered from 9am till 1:00 each day. It will be in  Owen Sound at Her Wellness on Second Ave east downtown. It is a scent free and animal free setting to allow for those with allergies (including myself).

I have been inspired by what I have been learning through the International House of Reiki and Frans Stiene.  They have approved the courses I offer.  Those who complete the three sessions will receive a certificate acknowledging their completion.  The class will focus on developing spiritual and mental focus by working with the precepts, as well as learning a daily routine for meditation and self-care, hands on healing you can use for family and friends, and you will receive Reiki blessings through attunements and reijus.

You will have some suggested reading before the course starts as well as meditation and practice homework between segments.  Following completion of the course, I will offer you a special discount on receiving sessions from me if you so wish over the next few months.

Reiki 11 (Okuden) is an eight-hour course.  You must have taken the first level from someone in-person in order to take the second level. If you have not taken the first level as traditional Reiki, there is required reading and practice to prepare. I will send this as an email.

The Okuden course will be offered the mornings of Friday May 10 and 17 from 9 am till 1pm.   Students who have not taken Shoden as their level 1 will be asked to follow a pre-course instruction with instructions via email.  Registering at least two weeks prior to the course is preferable to complete the reading and meditations.

The class is offered from 9am till 1:00.   It will be in  Owen Sound at Her Wellness on Second Ave east downtown. It is a scent free and animal free setting to allow for those with allergies (including myself).

It is best to have had at least three months of practice with Reiki 1 and especially practice with the meditations, before taking Reiki 11.  Reiki 11 teaches you ways to strengthen the flow of Reiki energy using three symbols and mantras.  In Reiki 11 you will also learn Distant Healing and some particular Reiki techniques and meditations to focus the energy in different ways.

Taking Reiki classes a second time is not necessary even if it has been years since previous classes occurred.  However, I have found that taking repeats with different teachers is beneficial. If you are considering this, I would be happy to discuss it with you over email.

Cost $200  There is a $75 non refundable deposit to register. Pay in full by March 3rd and cost is only $160.  Those who have completed Shoden with me or Sheila Murphy receive a special rate.  Please contact me if you need more information.

Following the second level you may attend any of the Reiki workshops I offer unless it is specifically directed to Reiki Masters.  There is always a special price for people who have taken Reiki classes through me.

The Reiki  Master Course is a three-day course  that requires a further commitment to using Reiki regularly for yourself and your own self growth.  You may or may not choose to practice it on others .  Likewise teaching is an option you may or may not choose to follow.  In order to take this course, you must have the first and second levels taken from someone in person (in other words not online).  I also ask that you follow a daily self Reiki practice several months in advance.

If this course interests you, please let me know.  I would like to discuss it with you.

Second Annual Reiki Learning and Practice Day.
This full day workshop runs from 9:30 to 3:00 on Friday May 24.  We will break for lunch and there are several restaurants close by. Bleeding Carrot serves excellent vegan lunches and you can request gluten free.

In April I will have attended a four-day retreat in Cincinatti led by Frans Steine.  I am sure we will once again have learned more Reiki techniques and meditations which I will be able to share with you. As well we will have the opportunity to review some of the meditations you may have already learned.

Requirements: I would prefer to have everyone having taken the second level of Reiki.  I expect there will be several Masters people in attendance. If you have taken only the first level but have practiced Reiki on yourself and family and friends, you may attend.

The full cost for the day would be $100.00 however, as I promised last year, I am aiming to encourage people to continue to practice Reiki for themselves and to spread the word to others.  So ….

If you have attended any of my classes (Reiki 1, 2 or Master) deduct $15
If your bring a new person who did not attend the first one, deduct $10 each. (Remember new people should have Reiki 2 or higher or Reiki 1 if they have continued to practice on themselves.)
If you attended last year, deduct $5.
This means that if you have taken one of my Reiki classes, and bring a new person and took the class last year, you pay only $70.

I look forward to hearing about your interests and any questions.

Till next time,

Marie
