A Brief Look Ahead

Reiki and Communication Skills for People and their Animals
Tuesday, Februry 18th and and Thursday Februry 20th
(plus an additional class on Wednesday, Feb 19th for certification)

dog paws and handThis class will deepen your understanding of your animal companions. We will look at basic behaviors that calm and promote better communication. You will also receive a Reiki attunement which will give the ability to access deeper peace in your meditation and communion with life. With the Reiki attunements, you will have a hands-on method to help reduce anxiety and stress in your animals plus strengthen your bond.

This is not a certification course – if your wish to be certified in Reiki One which is for people and animals you will need to take the Wednesday Night training also. At that point you will be certified in Usui Reiki One and receive your certificate of completion at the end of the Thursday evening course. You will find more information on the instructor and Reiki below.

About the instructor:
Christine Campbell CRMT (Certified Reiki Master Teacher) has had a deep connection with and innate understanding of animals since her childhood. In her younger life, she worked in various kennels and she managed a very large show dog kennel where she worked with and assisted top trainers and trained dogs for show at the Westminster National Show in New York. Christine has also had extensive training in earth/survival/tracking skills at Tom Brown Jr.’s Tracker School and Harvest Song Nature Awareness School to name a few. She has deep respect for all Creatures Great and Small.

She has practiced Reiki since 1987. She initially took Reiki for her own benefit and to use on animals and plants. She began working with people in late 2000. She completed her Master Level in 2001 and began teaching. Christine has taught in many hospitals including Bryn Mawr, Fox Chase, and 1st Presbyterian. At Bryn Mawr she founded the Bryn Mawr free Reiki Clinic for oncology patients and their families. She also worked for the “Living Through Cancer Foundation from 2009 – 2014 teaching and providing private sessions. She has presented at many Complimentary/Alternative Medicine conferences in the area.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for relaxation and stress reduction which opens the body and promotes healing. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words: “Rei,” which means “Divine Wisdom or the Higher Power,” and “Ki,” which is life force energy (also known as Chi or Prana). Reiki is translated as “spiritually guided life-force energy.” Reiki is a simple, natural, and safe method of energy healing that anyone can use. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

It is an amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an “attunement” given by a Reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” to improve one’s health and enhance the quality of life.
