The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy." Come and align yourself with this healing energy. It is not massage and no touching of a body is needed to do Reiki on another person who is fully clothed. Both classes are needed to complete Reiki Level 1. Class size is limited. Please bring something to drink and your lunch.
Students should obtain a copy of Essential Reiki by Diane Stein and read the Forward and Chapter 1 by the first class. Please let the Adult Ed office know if you need us to supply a copy.
