Caring for Ourselves and Others: Reiki 1 and Reiki 2 Training
Daily 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM
We often sideline self-care, prioritizing others before ourselves. During this challenging and stressful time, self-care is even more critical than ever. Ironically, if we do not develop a regular practice of self-care, our capacity to support others is diminished and ultimately, unsustainable. Research tells us that caregivers/care partners are at risk for a decline in their own health and well-being, sometimes even dying before those they care for because of caregiving stress. The truest way to serve others is to remain strong by protecting our immune system by reducing our stress. This way, we increase our long-term capacity to support our loved ones and community. Reiki is a practice that gives us the tools to help us do, just that.
What is Reiki? Reiki, pronounced, “RAY KEE,” is a relaxation and stress reduction technique now used in many settings throughout the world including hospitals, rehabs, and hospice, as part of integrative medicine. It offers us an enhanced capacity to heal by focusing the whole person’s skills and energy – mind and body.
Testimonials about Reiki’s impact describe increased relaxation, reduced stress and pain, and an overall sense of well-being. These reports come from individuals living with a wide array of challenges including anxiety, depression and sleep disorders, as well as those recovering from stroke, brain injury, and other trauma. Join us in learning Reiki’s relaxation techniques that offer the tools for reducing stress and increasing well-being for yourself, and others.
