General Animal Reiki Articles
This page is the place for you to read about all things animal Reiki! You’ll find articles about Reiki’s healing benefits for shelter animals, how Reiki can help heal compassion fatigue in animal caregivers, and even how chocolate can teach us about animal Reiki! There are also several articles about what exactly animal Reiki “is,” including one written especially for vet techs. It’s not always easy to explain animal Reiki to others, but hopefully these articles will shed some clarity on animal Reiki’s meaning and help you in your next Reiki conversation. A common theme throughout many of these articles is the fact that Reiki starts with you, and radiates a beautiful peaceful and compassionate space that helps others to heal as well! CLICK HERE for a supportive audio course, “Heal Yourself, Heal Your Animals,” that will share important tips and powerful techniques for interspecies connection and healing.
Today, I want to share an answer I posted on a FB group for Animal Reiki. The question was:Is Animal Reiki a specific line of Reiki or is it just any Reiki used for animals?
Here is my answer, and please feel free to share:

Since I was a little girl, I always had a joy for teaching. I guess my first memorable teaching experience was helping my sister Charlotte tie her shoe. She was about 4 and I was about 8. And that was quite a challenge since I am left-handed and she is right-handed! We did it though (and I guess that was the start of never walking away from an educational challenge 🙂 )
Although I was a bit of a nerd in high school (LOL) I always managed to make friends with …
I’m so grateful to be fully vaccinated and feel hope for things in the US beginning to open up more and more with each passing week! I may do some in person courses locally this summer, but I haven’t set any dates yet (I’m slowly emerging from my cave, LOL). Right now I’m still teaching all my courses online.
By the way, I’ve just released my next online certification courses: Level 1 morning and afternoon sessions, and Level 2, morning and afternoon sessions, starting in July! If you’re thinking of …
I’m so excited to share with you my latest interview with The Super Charmed Life blog!
Charmaine, writer and editor at The Super Charmed Life, was interested in my work with SARA, Animal Reiki, and wanted to know how the pandemic has affected things for us.
Here is a short excerpt from the in-depth article she wrote:
“Probably the biggest difference during the pandemic for our SARA members is that many of us weren’t able to volunteer or get out into the community as we usually do,” Kathleen laments. “Thankfully, things are starting …
In the Let Animals Lead® Method of Animal Reiki, there are 3 levels of training and practice:
Level 1, Shoden or Beginner TeachingsLevel 2, Okuden or Hidden/Inner Teachings (and the foundation of a professional practice)And Level 3, Shinpiden or Mystery Teachings (and the Teacher Training course).
Hopefully I’ll be teaching all of these levels again in person by the end of this year, but in the meantime, I am teaching them all online.
My next level 1 course starts in May, but is sold out!
Did you know that if my Level 1 Online …
