Kathleen Prasad
is the world’s Animal Reiki pioneer and creator of the Let Animals Lead® method. This groundbreaking approach to energy healing empowers animals by honoring their agency, wisdom and independence by giving them a choice of how (and if) they want to participate in an energy healing Animal Reiki session.

Animal Reiki Source is about giving animals the choice to step into a healing space by using meditation, not hands.

The Let Animals Lead® method (developed by Kathleen Prasad of Animal Reiki Source) is not just a unique, animal-guided approach to Reiki for animals, it’s also a gentle path to help humans and animals live together with more balance, peace and happiness. And it’s entirely based on meditating with animals and allowing them to choose when, how, and if they want to participate.
