You’ll learn an overview of the Let Animals Lead® method of Animal Reiki, including guided meditations, from the world’s leading Animal Reiki expert, Kathleen Prasad. The Let Animals Lead® method of Animal Reiki is a beautiful way of creating mindful relationships with animals using Reiki meditations and it’s very different from the hands-on human Reiki approach. Since it gives animals their choice (and preference) of connection, the Let Animals Lead® method truly resonates with animals by creating positive and trusting responses.

The lessons, meditations and creative and fun assignments will show you the most successful, ethical way to share Reiki with animals. This course will give you everything you need to honor animals with your approach and to troubleshoot difficult situations effectively. This course contains so much valuable information, you’ll find yourself re-reading and re-listening to the lessons again and again as you put Kathleen’s advice to practice.

  1. C. Hancock

    Thank you for making your work so accessible! What a wonderful way to further my Reiki training. It was so nice to be able to complete the coursework from home, but I also felt like I was able to learn and practice what was being taught. The methods shared resonated with me so deeply. It was as if my soul was like, “Of course, this is how….why hadn’t I thought of that?!” This course was the key to unlocking that part of me, so thank you. The animals I am helping (including my own) have also been grateful. 😀

  2. K.S.

    Thank you for this excellent course, Animal Reiki Core Curriculum, and for sharing your insights, knowledge, and the accompanying audio seminars. There is a lot more to learn and practice but I do feel more knowledgeable and more clarity about how to cultivate both my confidence, and my humility, so that I can ‘step back’ and remember that “the ANIMALS ARE CREATING THEIR OWN healing sessions in a unique and dynamic way.”

  3. Melissa S.

    I loved this class!! I’m a reiki master but wanted to expand my knowledge to include animals and was referred to Kathleen and I’m so glad I was. Her classes are very informative and I absolutely loved the guided meditations. I’ll be using everything I learned!

  4. S. Lauzon

    I have been practicing Reiki for 15 years, and I can’t tell you how much this 5 week session has opened my eyes to a different way of being and working with Reiki. My experiences in the Reiki flow with animals has been unexpectedly moving and it has certainly changed even my approach to doing Reiki with my human clients! Just focussing on Reiki as a healing art that blends meditation and touch has been profound and special.

  5. Johan Langelo the Netherlands

    Recommend this course to everyone. Gives a total other approach of practicing Reiki. Extensive documentation you can use your whole life. Thanks and Warm Regards Kathleen!

  6. Amy

    I highly recommend and I can’t say enough good things about this course. Not only is Kathleen a knowledgeable, genuine, gifted leader, she is responsive to the homework assignments, personally encouraging and very supportive. I learned a lot from this course and feel more confident and at ease. Thank you Kathleen for sharing your gift and educating me!

  7. Laurel

    When I signed up for this course with the goal of helping animals, I never imagined the profound effect these teachings would have on me personally. My spiritual life has shifted in beautiful and important ways. The course is expertly designed and delivered with a gentle touch and profound wisdom, and I feel confident that I can take this work for animals out into the world. I am so grateful to Kathleen.

  8. K Takagi

    I really enjoyed this course with Kathleen. She has a great deal of wisdom to share, and does so in such as kind and open way. I absolutely recommend her courses and want to take more, too!

  9. Desiree

    This course definitely expanded my knowledge about how to “be reiki” and support animals at deeper emotional, physical and spiritual levels. It has made me a more compassionate and attuned equine reiki practitioner.

  10. Melissa

    I absolutely love this course! I find Kathleen’s teaching of Reiki so expansive. I also appreciate her simple and relatable approach to sharing her wisdom. I came out of this course with so much, but the biggest for me was a much deeper reverence and whole new level of respect for animals as well as sharing Reiki with them.

  11. Debra Markowitz

    As a Reiki I and II practitioner, I found this course very helpful. Always a good reminder that we are the Reiki than doing Reiki. Kathleen is knowledgeable and very pleasant to listen to. Would definitely recommend.

  12. Lara Hammett

    This course is very informative and thought out very well. It answered a lot of questions that I had been wondering about.

  13. Laura Appleman

    This course has been a great bridge between level one and 2. I learn so many useful techniques to working with Reiki symbols with animals. Having studied Reiki for people how you use the symbols is very different. It has really helped to expand my practice.

  14. Mike De Pope

    I am really happy I decided to take this course. Although I am a Reiki Master, I felt my training never went deep enough when it came to animal reiki. From my very first Reiki class, I felt a strong pull to work with animals, and knew what I learned for humans would not cut it with the animals. Sadly, I could not find anyone in my area who taught Animal Reiki. When deciding to take an online course, I thought why not go with the person who literally wrote the book on Animal Reiki. Each week’s lessons were a new eye opener to dive deeper. The one assignment I was the most apprehensive about turned out to be my favorite. Getting to dialogue with another Reiki practitioner around the world will always be a highlight. I definitely recommend.

  15. Georgina

    The side effect of this course, alongside some dedication and work can bring about a remarkable and unexpected shift in Reiki connections with animals! The way Kathleen shares her experiences and knowledge has given me invaluable, gentle, but profound guidance and support which has undoubtedly helped me to develop my own practice. I’m extremely grateful and would very much encourage others interested in taking this course to do so 🙂

  16. Julie Webb

    Each lesson in this course is absolutely packed with content; and the homework assignments have been crafted to gently help you push through your fears and hangups. Kathleen offers personal support and feedback to help you make the teachings a part of you. This course is a great value!

  17. Amy Butler

    My experience with Kathleen and this course exceeded my expectations. Each module is beautifully balanced with curriculum and interactive projects that “seed” the learning and practice. I found the flow from week to week to be inspiring and empowering! My heart has been opened and affirmed. I’m extremely grateful to Kathleen for creating and sharing such a comprehensive training.

  18. Christiane

    Truly enjoyed the course and all the course material – mp3s and documents that I will re-read and listen to again and again. I liked Reiki before but Kathleen’s approach makes so much sense to me and now I LOVE my Reiki practice – her approach is all about kindness and connection. Thank you for sharing your experience and your wisdom, Kathleen.

  19. Rochelle Greenbaum

    The course was wonderful! I Loved how Kathleen incorporated spirit and Self Love in the process of sharing Reiki. The concept of Letting Animals Lead was new to me but is very relevant to my life with letting the child lead in my work with children. It opened up a whole new dimension for me in sharing Reiki. It helped me find the place within myself where I am Being Reiki. When I say to myself I am Reiki, I can feel myself present, in the serene center of my Being within my heart, and accessing that is where Divine Love pouring through me and an animal’s desire for sharing Reiki can create healing for the animal. And this of course creates healing for me as well in the giving and receiving. Definitely a must take course! Thank you Kathleen for your beautiful work!

  21. Cristina

    CLEAR, CALM & CONNECTION… to ones body, mind & soul. Take this class if you want to dig deep, feel incredibly present & alive. I personally love getting involved in the assignments for myself & mediations were very beautiful.

  22. Shannon Thomas

    I really enjoyed this class and it was a pleasure to work with Kathleen. She brought so much information to us in this class and brought my animal reiki practice so much closer to me. Thank you for your support and kindness.

  23. Viola van Schalkwyk

    I really loved this course and can recommend it to everybody interested i learning about animal reiki. Kathleens encouraging way to give feedback and her wonderfull lessons really enriched my journey in animal reiki. And I enjoyed the assingments, it was so helpfull to work in a playfull artistic way with det expieriences made by practising during the week. Kathleen – thank you for your support, this course and all the wonderfull work you are doing.

  24. Ronalane Anderson

    My passions are animals, Reiki and anything to do with Mother Earth. This course gently brought all together. The experience, support and guidance throughout this course surmounted all expectations. May Creator continue to shower Kathleen with love and light.

  25. Malia

    The Animal Reiki Workshop helped deepen my understanding about Reiki, and most of all, it affirmed my desire to work with animals. The lessons are clear and portable; during my holidays, I was able to follow our weekly lessons and practiced each exercise with “house dogs’ and others that live in the streets of the small town I visited. I was extremely happy and moved to experience how Reiki helped a few of these wondering dogs.
    Kathleen, thank you for your teachings, support and guidance.

  26. Kellie Jewitt

    This was a great starting point for me to dip my toes into animal Reiki. Lessons were very enjoyable and Kathleen provides such gentle and positive feedback which was wonderful. I love Kathleen’s approach with animals i.e. offering/being Reiki rather than ‘doing’ Reiki. Thank you Kathleen!

  27. Katherine Wilkinson

    I am a Reiki Master and Holy Fire but have been shy about working with others only my family and personal animals! I took this class for many reasons! First, it was online. Second, as caregiver for my husband, I needed to “do something for me” as everyone says “Take care of you”. Third, I wanted to work with animals (horses, dogs, cats, an more) but needed guidance! This fit all of my needs and much more! Kathleen is very non-ego! I kept waiting for some reprimand in any area but it didn’t come only her soft approach and encouragement that “Practice, Practice, Practice” is everything! I knew the diligence of practice with music abilities and teaching! My life took a turn as a cancer survival and my huge dream of working with rescued horses 6 years ago a distance from where I currently live! My life is taking a deeper root with my dream at a Senior age! I will keep taking classes with Kathleen. I purchased her books years before and wanted to study with her, another dream which is now completed! Thank you for offering your years of experience and Love!!

  28. Jodie Jacobs

    I finished Kathleen’s Level 1 Course in October and was so inspired that I couldn’t wait for Level 2 in January so I signed up for this course in between. 🙂 It was very informative and there were a lot of interesting assignments. I really enjoyed connecting with another practitioner during one of the lessons. She was more advanced than I am and offered a lot of good advice and even though I am not very experienced, she appreciated my input as well. This course is a great way to express your creativity and have fun while doing it. Kathleen is very patient and kind and is an inspiration to me and anyone lucky enough to be around her. Can’t wait for Level 2 to begin!

  29. Anne-Aurélie Abecassis

    I really loved this course ! And I am so grateful to Kathleen for the depth of her teachings… This course helped me learn to connect with the animals in a much deeper way, and unexpectedly also led me to approach my Reiki practice with humans with a wider perspective… I highly recommend this course to any person interested in Animal Reiki, no matter what level of Reiki you are. And it is also a gift to the animals… Thank you so much Kathleen !

  30. Rachael Beuchler

    This course came into my life at a perfect time. I recommend it for all Reiki practitioners. I’m Level III certified and loved it for the breadth it brought to my practice and the peace it brought me during a crisis which occurred during the course. Thank you Universe and thank you Kathleen!!!

  31. Betty Seckendorff

    Loved this course, it helped me on so much. It is perfect if you want to get the confidence to go out there and actually offer animal reiki to clients. It gets you grounded in the basics and then ready to fly.

  32. Nayori

    This course helped me open doors to a world of subtle energies. The assignments are interesting, as it seems to me a way to dig down deeper within oneself, which helps open us up to a different kind of exchange/communication/socialization with animals. Unexpectedly, the course also helped me in hands-on reiki on humans.

  33. Sheryl Leaf

    The Core Curriculum expanded both my Reiki and meditation practices. The creative assignments holistically integrated the lectures and readings – heart, body and mind. Kathleen is a wise and compassionate guide to the healing power of Reiki for all beings.

  34. Katarina Cakovska

    Training with Kathleen was an eye opener for me. The wisdom she shared with us during the course was like a missing puzzle pieces that fallen perfectly in to the place. From my personal healing and forgiveness to trust and rediscover the faith in Reiki unconditional love and infinite power. Due to my last month of pregnancy I am going to take it easy now with the practice in the field with animals but I am looking so much forward to get in touch with the animals and their humans and have them experience the Reiki while letting the animals lead us through the healing progress. I am definitely going to sign up for future trainings with Kathleen to learn her techniques and heal the world 🙂

  35. Emily Sorbel

    Kathleen’s wisdom and profound love and compassion comes through in the meditations for each class. I also enjoyed her sense of humor and joy when talking about her experiences. Each lesson has an abundance of written material to help deepen your understanding of Reiki and to how to incorporate animal Reiki in your life and business. I highly recommend this course, after taking it I feel like I have helped make the world a more loving, compassionate place.

  36. Lisa

    I loved this course
    Not only did I learn how to practice / share Reiki with animals, I also learned how to quiet my mind and connect within myself and just Be. I loved the creative side of the weekly assignments as well as the meditations and practice. Kathleen’s feedback and encouragement was invaluable. I learnt so much more than I expected and would not hesitate recommending this course to anyone.

  37. Myra McRae

    I wasn’t sure whether I should go ahead and do this course, I mean what more could I learn I have one of Kathleen’s books and so I procrastinated for some time. Well! I am so so glad I took the plunge and did this course. I cannot tell you how much I learned from week one onwards, I actually feel sad that it is finished I was enjoying it so much. Kathleen has the most beautiful way with animals, she is so intuitive and compassionate and above all respectful towards them. Learning to look beyond the issues the animal is facing to its true being, it’s true essence is the biggest thing I took away. This course has provided me with the tools and confidence to work in shelters something I have been avoiding due to fear. Wow! what a realisation. If you are contemplating doing this course please don’t hesitate for one minute you will not regret it.

  38. Ela Archinger

    I loved this class! I was very skeptical about learning Animal Reiki in an online class but since it is a prerequisite for the actual training I thought ok lets do it. Woww was I in for a surprise. Kathleen’s passionate, clear and informative way of teaching opened my eyes and heart. Not only learned I how to approach animals more respectful but I also learned a lot about myself. Kathleen’s “Let the animals lead” approach is soo much more fun and successful than “forcing” Reiki on animals. Her meditations, stories and lectures open the way to an equal relationship with animals. I highly recommend this class for everybody who thinks about offering Reiki for animals. I can’t wait to participate in Kathleen’s master and teacher training!

  39. Sherry Long

    I am a Reiki Master practitioner and read Kathleen’s book ‘Healing Virtues’ to help me with my volunteer work with an animal rescue I’m involved with. The book was very informative so I decided to take the online core curriculum class. I’m so glad I did! The weekly lessons and homework were very eye opening. This class and Kathleen have brought my animal reiki to a deeper level. I highly recommend this class and I look forward to taking others.

  40. Karen

    This was a wonderful class. Kathleen’s lessons are very informative and stories interesting and inspiring. Her meditation exercise for each class are my favorites. The reiki sessions. And other exercises students do are designed to make u better understand her let the animal lead approach to reiki for animals and to build your confidence and understanding. Highly recommended — I actually took last year and resat this year because I enjoyed it so much. Highly recommended — a very effective reiki approach and a wonderful experience. You will deepen your practice!!

  41. Kelly L McCarthy

    This course was such a beautiful introduction to what the Let The Animals Lead® method truly is, how it works and the difference between how we approach animals vs humans in healing. Each week, through the lessons, I found myself going deeper into the meditations and learning so much about how animals lead and teach us compassion, love and understanding from a vary different perspective. I enjoyed not only the self work that came from this course but working with a group that was extremely supportive and loving on my journey. I would highly recommend this course to those that are looking to better understand the connection we have with animals and want to learn how to open yourself up to the magic of allowing them to be our greatest teachers. Thank you Kathleen for being the light and reminding us all that we are too.

  42. Susie Mottashed

    I simply loved Kathleen Prasad’s online class “Animal Reiki Workshop: Core Curriculum”. Kathleen’s audio lecture, PDF notes, and weekly assignments all weaved together a beautiful learning experience. I learned a lot each week and was able to put into practice her techniques for letting go expectations and allowing the animals to lead the session. I volunteer at a therapeutic riding center. I was able to see clearly how changing my approach and my expectations allowed the herd and individual horses to relax deeply when offering Reiki. Thank you, Kathleen for such a beautiful class.

  43. Giselle Hampton

    LOVED this course, opened my eyes up to a different way of Reiki with animals. Communication with Kathleen was excellent, timely and helpful. The homework assignments were such fun, encouraged lateral thinking and added a practical element to the course. The meditations so useful to put you in the zone. I have done my Reiki Master course, but can honestly say I learnt so much on this course. Highly recommend and worth every cent!

  44. Michael Payne

    I’d been wanting to focus my reiki efforts on working with animals. I came across Kathleen’s work by “accident” though I don’t really believe in accidents. Initially I did one of her Udemy courses and then decided I liked what I’d learned but wanted more practical experience under Kathleen’s guidance. What a blast this course turned out to be for me – I live out in a rural areas of South Africa, so the course delivery vehicle was perfect, the exercises got me out of my head and into nature where I could do something constructive, and having Kathleen’s insights and guidance just rounded it all off for me. So to Kathleen, and the team I worked with Diana and Pauline, thank you so much for a wonderful learning experience and I hope our paths will cross again in the not too distant future.

  45. Angela La Scala

    I learned a lot from this class! For one thing, I was already a Level 3 Reiki Master and knew little of animal Reiki. I was taught to share Reiki with my furry companion as if he was human! Kathleen taught me differently through this class and I love her “let animals lead” approach. I learned animals are just as receptive to Reiki as humans, but they rather share in the space and have more say, so to speak! I learned to let go of my own ego and “just be” with my animal companion and the results were amazing, for both of us! Kathleen also looks at every lesson we submit and adds personal input and I really appreciate that from an online course. She is always available for questions and adds a personal touch to an online class that makes you feel like you are taking it in person. I also love how she adds creativity to our learning experience and it really helps us to connect with the lesson through creativity! I will certainly recommend this class to my Reiki group and fellow practitioners and animal lovers!

  46. Susan

    I loved this class! It deepened my practice and broadened my knowledge of Reiki. Kathleen is a bright light and a gifted teacher. It was a relaxed course and the assignments were fun and thought provoking. I really enjoyed seeing the work of past students and learning from them as well!

  47. Becky

    I have listened to several of Kathleen’s meditations, and was inspired to complete this course. I am so pleased as the content is easy to access, informative and the homework keeps you motivated and inspired. It was lovely to connect with other participants to share stories and ideas. I can see how my practice with animals is so much better now, and I am very grateful to the guidance Kathleen has shared.

  48. Jaclyn Penque

    I have been following Kathleen and practicing Reiki on my own animals for a while, but this course took my Animal Reiki sessions to the next level. Very soon after beginning the course I had my first of many ‘aha’ moments and began breaking through stumbling blocks that I hadn’t even realized were impeding my progress. Thanks to this course I am more confident in my practice and more deeply connecting with all creatures, which in turn makes my sessions more effective and allows me to bring Reiki to even more beautiful spirits. I would highly recommend this course!

  49. dianaseidl49

    This course has helped me gain patience and strength to stay grounded even in tough situations, to go inside and connect with self, to be at peace and to have courage to let go and let things unfold as they are supposed to. Anything is truly possible. It’s really all about love, letting animals lead and listening. Thank you Kathleen!

  50. Pauline Cochrane (NZ)

    I have just completed Kathleen’s Animal Reiki Workshop online and recommend this course to anyone wishing to practice animal Reiki. I had completed all three Reiki levels many years ago and had used hands on Reiki with my cats and dogs in the intervening years. I was wanting to re-connect with Reiki specialising in animal Reiki when I came across Kathleen’s website. Kathleen suggested I start with this course and I am delighted I did so. It has been interesting throughout the course to see the response of animals without using hands on but sharing Reiki energy with them through meditation. There were “wow” moments during my meditation sessions. The biggest moment was when a herd of young cows came running towards me from the far end of a paddock mooing very loudly to get my attention. They came right up to the fence as I approached and just stood there quietly looking at me. It was a very special moment for me to share Reiki energy with them. Thank you for sharing your experiences and teaching Kathleen.

  51. Jennifer Sherman

    I just had the pleasure of finishing the core workshop class. I found it a great class with lots of information to be learned and I loved the different assignments that we had to do each week. I highly recommend taking this class. I’m planning of taking other courses with Kathleen and I can’t wait.

  52. Karen Caza

    This course has inspired me to want to do much more with Animal Reiki and develop my own private practice. The work is amazing and opened my eyes to a whole new way of working with animals. The responses I received from my own pets was astonishing and changes occurring within the home in a very short time was incredible. Having the opportunity to work with Kathleen through this course has offered greater insight to the world of animals as great teachers for us. All we have to do is pay attention, and “listen” to them. Thanks you Kathleen for this wonderful opportunity.

  53. Carla Salido

    I so enjoyed this course, and learned so much! Kathleen is such a warm and welcoming presence, both in the class materials as well as her personal emails. I had already read several of Kathleen’s books, so you might expect that the course wouldn’t have offered me as much, but the way the course is structured and the homework assignments (which can be both challenging and fun!) really led me to appreciate and be able to use the Let Animals Lead approach for offering Reiki to animals. Equally (or perhaps even more importantly), the different meditations were and are making a huge difference in my life. I feel calmer and have greater equanimity when live throws me curve balls! Thank you Kathleen!

  54. Jess B

    I LOVED this course. Kathleen, animals and my classmates were wonderful to learn and grow with. Kathleen encourages you to adapt your learning to what feels creative and meaningful for you. Her strategies, ideas and experience are a treasure box of Reiki goodies that inspired me and helped me find confidence and purpose in my practice as well as my connection to myself and the world around me. I find it fascinating that I’ve always felt a deep embrace with the animal world and during the course, the embrace opened doors, hearts and possibilities, more than I imagined. The power of belief and energy is synchronous and beautiful. Thank you, Kathleen. Thank you, Reiki! 🙂

  55. Charlotte R

    I can’t praise this course and Kathleen’s teachings enough. I’ve been practicing Reiki since 2015 and though I’ve worked with many wonderful teachers, Kathleen’s approach, organization and competency as a teacher is beyond compare. She’s incredibly insightful and also really available. I felt a lot of room to explore and find myself within the teachings. This course brought my practice to a deeper and fuller level, and I can’t imagine working any other way than with Kathleen’s Let Animals Lead approach. Got for it and enjoy!

  56. Diane Ellerton

    This was a wonderful course it gave me a new perspective on Animal Reiki which I will always carry with me. Kathleen’s kindness
    and enthusiasm is inspiring. I am really pleased I have done this course. Thank you Kathleen.

  57. Lisa Magoulas

    I’m a Reiki Master/Teacher for humans. I always thought you could “do” Reiki on animals, just like on humans. Boy, was I wrong. Kathleen’s philosophy of Letting the Animals Lead is a game changer. I stopped trying to “feel” like I “had” to treat the animals for what was wrong. As we learn in Reiki classes, Reiki will find its way to heal whatever needs healing. Kathleen’s teachings give us that AHA moment. Humans come to us for treatment. Animals will “be” with us if they chose. It provides a much more comfortable setting.

    And Kathleen’s guided meditations are so helpful, as I have monkey mind and she keeps me from wandering. Plus, her voice is so soothing. Thank you Kathleen for all you do. Keep up the good work. I truly believe that every animal owner should take this class. Blessings and Namaste.

  58. Alison Heyniger

    I have been practicing Reiki with animals for a number of years. This course gave me a deeper understanding of the connection we have with all creatures. I love new perspectives!

  59. Nisha Jaggi

    The animal reiki course with Kathleen has been an amazing experience for me . I absolutely loved all her meditations especially. Somewhere along the course and putting it in practice I got healed too . Thank you Kathleen. Highly recommend her

  60. Lisa Bishop

    This course was so insightful and supportive for my practice. I’ve been a Reiki practitioner for 3 years but had struggled with the patience and confidence to pursue more animal sessions. Kathleen’s books had been very enlightening and now with the additional depth and focus of this course, I am truly blessed to connect more deeply with animals, their humans, and myself. Kathleen provided creative and detailed lessons, a wealth of experience, and personal feedback to assignments and questions. I am grateful for such a beautiful experience. Thank you.

  61. Tiffani

    I highly suggest this wonderful opportunity to learn from Kathleen. Her coursework is delivered in a way that you can practice, understand, and absorb the information. The opportunity to share, work and learn from your peers is very valuable as part of the experience. You will not be disappointed. Thank you again Kathleen!

  62. Darlene Harris

    I enjoyed the class and connecting with the 2 ladies as cohorts. This was my first class on line and being a little older I had difficulty with getting the lessons in but Kathleen was very patient with me. The parts on meditation were easier that for some others because I do meditation twice a day as part of my daily spiritual practices. The only thing that was of concern was listening to the audio Your voice is soft and when you had your head lowered it made it difficult to hear you so perhaps the next time you might use a microphone or speak a little louder.

  63. Patricia Hartman

    Loved this class. Deepened my knowledge base about myself and animals and Reiki and meditation. Highly recommend it to others. The projects were interesting and found myself letting creative energy flow through me which is something I have not done in a while either. I had started meditating with my own animals before I read Katherine’s books. Friend gave me a copy of Heart to Heart with Horses which opened more doors for me and lead me to taking this class as I wanted to learn more. Has been an amazing journey. Well worth the time and effort.

  64. Esther Motley

    I highly recommend this course if you are interested in providing Reiki for animals. Animals need a different approach which Kathleen teaches in this course. This course has a wealth of information and I am sure I will be referring to my notes for much time to come. Kathleen is also very supportive and gives very helpful advice. I plan to take more classes!

  65. Tracy Bittner

    Enjoyed this course very much! Loved learning different techniques as it’s mostly animals I work on.

  66. Sam Roe

    This was a wonderful course and I highly recommend this to any person no matter what level of Reiki you are. I looked forward to the assignments each week which were informative, practical and creative. They also provide a form of structure throughout which you can continue to build upon after the course has finished. If you only learn one thing, this course is well worth taking but you will find you will learn so much more!!

    I was certified in Reiki I and the focus was on people. I became certifed to help animals, but the approach for people did not work with my animals. Kathleen’s books were recommended reading from my reiki 1 teacher. I read the books and signed up for this course. This course made all the difference. I learned so much, the handouts and audio files are so helpful. This course has provided me with a solid foundation for my practice. Thank-you Kathleen!

    I am a Reiki Master and had started practicing Reiki with animals shortly after receiving my attunements and completing my training. My primary interest is working with dogs. It was clear that the approach I was taking wasn’t what they needed, but I wasn’t sure what to do differently. This course was exactly what I needed to understand how to approach Reiki with animals differently, and it has completely shifted my practice. I have much more confidence when working with them, and it has been great to allow them to teach me! I highly recommend this course for anyone wanting to do Reiki with animals!

    What a amazing opportunity to learn from a great teacher! Kathleen’s course was so easy to follow and learn from. Her calming voice and all loving personality really came thru. Each lesson was perfectly illustrated and I really loved the downloadable portion of each lesson so I may review anytime I need to. This is a must do online course to further your animal reiki knowledge.

  70. Terri C.

    Taking this course expanded my view and practice of Reiki in working with animals and beyond. The course reading materials were insightful and informative, and Kathleen is very responsive and supportive in her feedback. I looked forward each week to receiving the reading and homework assignments!

  71. Brandy

    I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect introduction to animal reiki. Kathleen’s approach is so practical and holistically applicable to any species. I also found a lot of self healing through the process of taking this course and practicing the meditations with various animals around me.

  72. Donna Connolly

    I thoroughly enjoyed doing Kathleens online course. ( in fact my companion dog Dora enjoyed it too) As she would listen to the audio material with me. Felt like a beautiful meditation It really assisted in getting me into the Reiki headspace. I have kept up the daily practice.
    Was lovely to meet the creative side of myself again.
    My take home, is simplicity is key.

  73. Dawn McMenamin

    Such a wonderful and inspiring course. Kathleen really breaks down the how to’s of really connecting to an animal and the true simplicity of it by letting them lead the way. It helped me immensely. I can’t wait to review it over and over again and so should you!!

  74. Shelley Seitz

    I initially began taking Reiki to work with animals, so I started reading everything I could find on Animal Reiki, which led me to Kathleen. I’m so filled with overwhelming gratitude at the lessons I’ve learned and the shifts I’ve seen in the shelter animals I’m working with. Reiki is the most beautiful amazing gift, and to be able to share it with animals is the brightest blessing I could imagine. I know they have so much more to teach me, and I’m open and excited to learn from them.
    Thank you to Kathleen for helping teach me how to be a partner in healing with the animals.

  75. Roxia B. Bullock

    This was a wonderful course incorporating a combination of learning and hands on experience. I recommend this course to anyone regardless of level of Reiki. I am glad I signed up for it just before I did my Level III it was perfect timing. Thank you .

  76. Jennifer Halpern

    Kathleen is an amazing teacher and person. Not only does love pour through each lesson and assignment, but her perspective is unique and inspiring. I have learned so much about patience, presence and healing with animals through this course.

  77. Elizabeth Lincoln

    Kathleen is an inspired teacher who leads this course with compassion and creativity. The remote nature of the training was not an issue at all. The assignments were challenging and generated into not only into Reiki but into myself as a person, a healer, and a lover of animals.

  78. Jorgenson, Vickie

    Thank you Kathleen. The course was incredible and inspiring. The results amazing. Practicing each lesson on my and my neighbors animals was a great learning experience and seeing the animals reactions so humbling

  79. Yolanda Riley

    When I signed up for this course, I had no idea what to expect. I wanted to expand my Reiki practice that included all beings, not just human. Kathleen’s course went above and beyond anything I imagined. Her approach was genuine, warm, and compassionate. It helped me communicate and connect more deeply with animals. I enjoyed the exercises; they were fun and very creative. This course broadened my perspective on being a conduit for Reiki. The animals in my life (and those that I’ve come across) really enjoyed it!

  80. Laura Thomas

    This class is rich. Kathleen’s perspective and stories drive home the essence of Animal Reiki. If you are a Reiki practitioner and are considering an Animal Reiki class, make this the one. It will deepen your understanding of Animal Reiki and give you the basics to start “Being Reiki” with animals. The assignments were fun and “outside the box”. Extremely thought provoking and informative. The beginning of an amazing journey with Kathleen into Animal Reiki!

  81. Irene Rio

    I really loved doing this course! It has deepened my connection to Reiki and specifically animal Reiki. I now feel much more confident in “being Reiki” with animals. I have really enjoyed listening to the audios while out walking my dogs, and the assignments were creative and self-questioning. I would highly recommend this course.

  82. Beth Cavalier

    I was skeptical at first, wondering how a correspondence course would work. The answer is… wonderfully! I learned a great deal about Animal Reiki and how to incorporate Reiki for animals into my Reiki practice. I found the exercises to be fun, and thought provoking. Definitely a class to take if you are wondering about Animal Reiki. Thanks to Kathleen for making this information so accessible!

  83. Tracy Egri

    What a wonderful 5 week workshop. Each week I looked forward to the new lesson. The meditation where wonderful to start me with really getting grounded and freeing my mind. I felt encouraged to step out of my comfort zone and was always thrilled withKathleens encouraging words with each assignment I submitted. I will be continuing this journey with Kathleen’s online courses.

  84. Linda Watch

    I really enjoyed the course! I especially liked connecting with another practitioner and sharing our experiences. Working with animals is so rewarding and the course taught me how to relax and enjoy the process.

  85. Kris Azzarello

    For me, this was the class that started it all! I had taken Reiki in the 90’s and came across Kathleen’s book and then this course. It brought new understanding and depth to my practice (both for animals and people) and has helped me help so many animals in all sorts of situations; shelters; friends’ animals, wildlife, etc. This class is an absolute jewel and will give or strengthen your foundation in Reiki. I highly recommend it!

  86. Kelly H.

    This was a great class! I was already trained elsewhere up to the Master/Teacher level but really wanted to know more about Reiki with animals. I loved that I could just jump right into the animal part without having to redo the basic Reiki information. Thanks, Kathleen!

  87. Jane Wolfe

    I loved this course. I learned so much. This course has strengthened my connection to Reiki and to my own animals as well as the animals at my local shelter. Kathleen’s weekly lessons are easy to follow and she is always available for questions. You will be amazed at the things you will learn.

  88. Nicole

    This course was amazing! Each week’s lesson and assignment, brought a deeper understanding of how to offer Reiki to animals. Kathleen offers her guidance and support throughout. I would highly recommend this course.

  89. Myriam

    Wonderful course ! Easy to follow from a distance although very rich. The course is clear and full of insight. Kathleen is very encouraging and is always happy to answer the questions asked. Thanks for this nice experience, that leaves me with the desire to do more !

  90. Lynne Carlson

    I have been working with animals & humans for years as Reiki Practitioner and this course brought me to a deeper level of understanding in ways to offer Reiki to animals. It was an interactive course that brought me a lot of joy & insight. The animals I have come in contact with since taking this course have all benefited, both during in person sessions and remote healings. Thank you Kathleen for making this course available and sharing your compassion & knowledge! I recommend this course highly!!

  91. Margo Hepner-Hart

    I enjoyed this course and came at a time when myself and my dearest companion dog needed it most, she passed away during the course, it brought me closer to her while I was the conduit for Reiki for her. The meditations helped both of us. I have done Reiki for Animals now for several years now and this class helped so much more in depth, I look forward to the one in England, Thank you Kathleen!

  92. Michelle Hancock

    Taking this course was one of the BEST decisions I’ve made in regards to having a much deeper and better understanding of Animal Reiki. You will learn a great deal of valuable information, meditations and so much more by taking this course. Kathleen is very supportive, wonderful teacher and I am very grateful for everything I have learned with this course. I highly recommend it.

  93. Karen Pease

    This course is amazing. Kathleen is a gifted teacher and helps you throughout to really learn how to work with Reiki with all animals. Highly recommend taking it.

  94. Jason Wickens

    I found this course to be a wonderful addition to Kathleen’s reiki books and it has really helped take my practice to the next level. I feel I have a deeper understanding of animal reiki now. There are so many useful tips that you can put into practice instantly. Definitely highly recommended for those wishing to offer animal reiki.

  95. Sheena Campbell

    Great course! With lots of opportunity to practice and learn through a weekly audio file, detailed notes and a homework assignment that allows you to get intuitive and creative. I really enjoyed it.

  96. Sandi Means

    Wonderful course! I really enjoyed each week’s lesson and assignment. Just the “push” I needed to begin offering Reiki at my local animal shelter.

  97. Nancy Brenn

    Took this class several years ago, in person. Very helpful to my work with shelter cats and foster cats. Hope she does a book on Cats soon!

  98. Patti Andrasak

    I highly recommend this course for everyone who is interested in sharing Reiki with animals, no matter what your Level Certification is with Reiki. I just received my Certificate of Completion for the Animal Reiki Workshop and I couldn’t be more excited about that! Even though I have a Reiki Master Level certification, in all my studies, animal Reiki was never touched on with the depth, that it was, in this course. Between the audio Kathleen sends you, her written notes based on her insights and experiences, the fun and creative homework assignments, and the live monthly call available to everyone, it really didn’t “feel” like just an online course. This was truly an amazing experience for me and has totally changed the way I share Reiki with animals. It has also help me better understand their behaviors when receiving Reiki and also the responses I have experienced from them in return. I also love that the monthly live calls with Kathleen, will always be available to me now, which will help further my education with Animal Reiki! I can’t thank Kathleen enough for putting this course together! Thank you again, for all you do. I am forever grateful!

  99. Sharon Ortega

    This relaxed Animal Reiki Online Course with Kathleen has helped me tremendously with my practice. It has also given me new insights on animal behavior. The course outline, meditations, and homework are so well-written and planned. The feedback Kathleen gives on each homework are both helpful and inspiring. Thank you, Kathleen for this amazing journey.

  100. Marylin Lesperance

    An inspiring and enlightening course along with being practical and informative. Kathleen shares her love and compassion for the animals and shows the way to a deeper understanding of Reiki. And she’s fun and funny.

  101. Vicki Heck

    I found Kathleen after reading Animal Reiki: Using Energy to Heal the Animals in Your Life, which led me to her latest book and telecourse, Heart To Heart With Horses: The Equine Lover’s Guide to Reiki. All excellent! Her Reiki philosophies, compassion, and leadership in the field resonated with me deeply. This Animal Reiki Workshop is a quality 5-week program that has helped me with my practice immensely. The coursework, discussion and assignments are well planned to expertly guide students through with both knowledge and experiential work. I loved the assignments designed to tap into our inner creativity and an opportunity to branch out to get a variety of Reiki experiences. Thank you, Kathleen for helping us along on our Reiki journey! Will definitely be taking more coursework with Kathleen.

  102. Melissa

    Kathleen’s depth of understanding and compassion, and her insightful feedback alongside the practical nature of the course made it a transformative experience. I took this course when my cat was diagnosed with cancer and it made for a very special last few months together. I’ve since gone on to practice with other animals and the teachings they offer never cease to amaze! Many thanks Kathleen for opening that door for me.

  103. Eleanor Lewis

    This course is a great opportunity to work with Kathleen and especially if you cannot make it to any of the in-person training. You’ll work one on one with Kathleen via email, offer Reiki, and spend time reflecting about your experiences. It is also an opportunity to talk with Kathleen about any questions or areas you particularly want to work on in your practice. She really listens and gives great feedback. I learned a lot and felt more confident as I began my animal Reiki practice, but I think it would be helpful for experienced practitioners as well.
