Intro to Reiki

Reiki is the Japanese art of energy healing that works to heal physical, mental, and emotional symptoms. Reiki Master and Wildlight Yoga teacher Cassie Zehren will lead this experiential-based discussion and workshop in the introduction to Reiki. She will answer questions about the benefits of energy healing, what to expect in a Reiki session, and the process for becoming a Reiki practitioner. 

She will share her experience using Reiki to support healing around chronic illnesses such as cancer, emotional traumas including abuse and loss, mental blocks regarding patterned fears, depression, stress and anxiety, and spiritual development like enhancing intuitive and psychic abilities.

A brief overview of the chakra system of the body will support the understanding of Reiki and how this healing modality can balance and clear energy centers. Information about becoming a Reiki practitioner and what is involved in each level of Reiki training will be covered as well as the use of Reiki for self-treatment. The evening will conclude with a guided meditation with Reiki for attendees to experience the effect of energy work.

By attending this class, you will gain:

  • An understanding of Reiki energy healing and what happens during a session

  • What ailments Reiki can heal and how

  • How Reiki works with the chakra system of the body

  • How Reiki strengthens spiritual connection and enhances intuitive abilities

  • What happens during Reiki training and what it means to become a Reiki Master

  • How to use Reiki for self treatments

Living Deeply: Clearing Childhood Patterns

Living Deeply: Clearing Childhood Patterns

https___cdn.evbuc.com_images_62477420_267674657720_1_original.jpg

In this world, which can feel rough at times, how do we strive to find meaning and live deeply and connected to ourselves and others. As part of this, how do we lean into our challenges and begin to overcome patterns that we took on in childhood that can end up impacting our every day lives?

In this workshop, through deep work focused on self-love and our journey inward, including voice and embodiment exercises, activations and powerful tools, we'll begin to shift and clear these childhood patterns and open to the life that's calling to us.

You'll leave feeling more calm, clear, and open, with a fresh perspective, rooted in taking your next step towards finding meaning and living deeply in this life.

About Deborah

Deborah learned a long time ago that the key to true joy meant moving away from it. She realized at an early age, that running away from herself, her emotions ,and her pain only caused more of it, and the only true way out is in. She now coaches women to know true joy, no matter what's occurring, and most importantly, to celebrate and relish in this crazy, juicy, up and down thing we call life.

When she's not clearing energy blocks and childhood patterns or writing for The Huffington Post and Elephant Journal, you can find Deborah working out and traveling the world. To find out more about Deb, visit her at deborahhacker.com.

Admission is $30 in advance. $35 day of. Members receive 10% off. No refunds or credits.
