My first true experience with Reiki was when Christina McCabe walked into MWJ to introduce herself in the winter of 2013. She offered to give me a session right then and there and I swear to you when she put her hands over me, I felt the energy so intensely, I immediately started crying. I had a profound inner body release that I could not contain. It was almost shocking. I had just opened the studio and I was so overwhelmed with everything. I was extremely stressed (without actually ever giving it much thought) and definitely needed as much self care as possible. After that first experience, I was hooked and worked with Christina until she moved back to New York.
Since then, Pamela Hipp has arrived from California and I had a full treatment with her last week. I felt so incredibly relaxed I decided I had to just let myself ‘be’ in this space. I could have easily made myself snap back to reality and work mode but instead, I decided to go right home and take a nap. It was amazing! I had the most profound rest, incredible dreams, and that night I once again slept like a baby. I woke up and told my students in class, you have to take this workshop!! We even scheduled it so that you can come right after work.
THIS WEEK: Reiki for Self Care with Pamela Hipp, Wednesday February 4th, 6:30-8:30pm, $40
So you ask, what really is Reiki??
Reiki is a holistic healing technique that promotes relaxation and stress relief through gentle touch. It balances the life force energy that flows in and around all living beings. Students will learn simple, yet powerful, strategies to encourage well-being, vitality, and strengthen the immune system. This is class is open to all. The techniques are universal and will be especially beneficial for prenatal care. The definition of Reiki, a brief history, and a simple self-care routine will be taught in this introductory class. This routine may be used to reduce aches and pains, encourage digestion and restful sleep, and diminish stress and anxiety.
All students will receive the level 1 Reiki attunement, enabling them to practice on self and family members. Anyone wishing to give full-length, professional sessions is encouraged to attend a Reiki 1 class for complete details on how to do so. If you’re interested in a non-invasive, natural and gentle way to promote general health for yourself and your children, please join us for this fun, healing, and informative event.
ANYONE is welcome to come to this workshop. Give yourself the wonderful gift of self care and another tool in your pocket of tricks to take the best care of you and your family. I have officially jumped on the Reiki bandwagon for good.
