Class Descriptions

Animal Reiki Training

Experience what is beautiful and authentic

Deepen your relationship with the animals in your life with meditation and Reiki. Learn practical ways to connect and help them live their best possible lives.

Reiki and meditation are powerful techniques that help the animals in your life and you reduce stress and relax so that you can sense more deeply into the animal’s being, his essence. All animals respond intuitively to Reiki and understand that it supports the healing of emotional, behavioral, and physical injuries and ailments. Begin your journey of peace and wellness by sitting in silence, breathing, and relaxing with your animal companions.

If you work with animals as trainer, groomer, care-giver, veterinarian, vet tech, or rider, this training will support your work and teach you to be more relaxed, grounded, and connected.
