About the Retreat:

In this five-day Okuden and Animal Reiki 2 retreat, you will encounter the “hidden/inner” teachings of the System of Reiki. Okuden techniques take us further into the system of Reiki, where we begin to work more deeply with the concept of Oneness and learn how to share Reiki with beings at any time, and anywhere in the world.

Okuden teachings include several new meditation tools and techniques to help you to discover and connect with your inner grounding center, your spiritual center, and the center of your compassion. These techniques will help you to make an enriching and sustainable Reiki lifestyle and meditation practice.

The Japanese Reiki and Animal Reiki 2 Retreat offers:

*Meditating with Hatsurei ho, a practice to develop greater focus and spiritual energy within you
*Practice with the original intention of three traditional Reiki symbols to deepen your experience of earth, heaven, and oneness energies within you
*Experiential sound healing (chanting) with three traditional Reiki mantras and your inner earth, heaven, and oneness energies
*Distant Reiki methods, theory, and practice to expand your healing potential and personal relationship with Reiki
*Distant Reiki practice sessions with local sanctuary animals
*Exploration of Reiki and Animal Reiki professional practices and ethics for building a healthy, respectful, sustainable, and compassionate practice sharing Reiki with people and animals – in sanctuaries, at home, or in professional practice
*Further appreciation for the inner meaning of “Being Reiki” rather than “doing Reiki”
*Deeper personal relationship with creating peace from within
*Guidance and assistance approaching animal shelters and sanctuaries to offer Reiki
*Eligibility to continue with Japanese Reiki and Animal Reiki Level 3 (Shinpiden: “Mystery” teachings), a year-long apprenticeship
*The gift of even greater personal development and interconnection with all beings, at any time, in any location
*Opportunities to experience an even greater sense of openness, nonjudgment, joyfulness, presence, and wonder, witnessing their benefits in our lives and in our spiritual practice
*Connecting and forming friendships with new members of your Animal Reiki Tribe
*Spiritual growth and renewal… and so much more!

Integrative learning format:

Japanese Reiki and Animal Reiki 2 includes in-person, guided practice sessions with fellow retreat participants, in-person practice with local sanctuary animals, as well as “home play” practice assignments that can be completed with animals at home, at a distance, or in area animal shelters.

Our half-day format allows time for rest, practice, and integration each day.
