Reiki – Level I

William Stevens, Reiki instructor

The Japanese work “Reiki” means universal life force/energy. Reiki, a 3,000-year-old method of healing touch, originated in ancient Eastern cultures. It’s a technique that uses touch to facilitate relaxation, reduce stress, manage pain and promote healing. Health sciences recognize that spiritual and emotional imbalances affect our physical health and wellbeing. Reiki restores balance to body, mind and spirit, maximizing the natural healing process. When we remain out of balance, we become susceptible to “dis-ease”. Upon completion participants will be fully trained and will receive a certificate for the Usui System of Reiki Healing. Wear comfortable clothes and bring water.
