About our Theme:

For many years, animal rescue advocates have known the power of allowing animals choice in their lives to support the healing process. In this special 3-day Animal Reiki Meditation experience at Charlie’s Acres, we’ll explore how we can expand an animal’s choices within Animal Reiki sessions. We’ll discuss the why’s, how’s and when’s of choice within sessions, from basic practical tips to highly refined techniques we can use to expand and encourage animals to express their choices confidently and with trust and safety.

Testimonials from the spring session at Charlie’s Acres:

This class is THE LAST CHANCE you’ll have in 2023 to study with Kathleen Prasad in person among some very special animal teachers at Charlie’s Acres.

Charlie’s Acres gives a second chance for a happy life to animals such as cows, pigs, goats, sheep and turkeys who have been abused or destined for the dinner plate.

For all levels of practitioners and teachers in the Let Animals Lead® method, this 3-day class will bring together our Let Animals Lead® community, reignite your passion for your practice and help you deepen your bonds with the animals in your life! Because, even though a daily Animal Reiki meditation practice is an important aspect of our practice, that experience becomes so much deeper and more enriched when we are given the chance to meditate with others among rescued animals.

There’s really nothing that compares to it. It’s life changing.

    After completing Level 1 certification, Charlie’s Acres offered an inviting, educational and beautiful space for me to practice animal Reiki with animals other than my own for the first time. Kathleen’s well thought out schedule for the day included instructions, various animal Reiki practices with intentional focus and round circle reflection. It led to a feeling of freedom to learn with curiosity each time I invited the animals to join meditation. This immersion weekend was an opportunity for me to explore my own ego and wake up faculties of my nature that were slumbering, all with a kind and calm mindset. It was very enjoyable and humbling to share peaceful light-filled experiences with the animals who offered to share space with me in whatever way they chose. Many animals taught me about facets of myself. I’m very grateful to have met fellow classmates in person.
    Thank you!

    If you have trained with Kathleen, you know that the Let Animals Lead method of animal reiki is life changing. This immersion experience took that transformation to an even higher level than I could have imagined. Participating in this really integrated and grounded the practice through the wisdom of the animals who live at sanctuary, gentle guided by Kathleen. I truly experienced what it means to “be Reiki”. This opened my heart in ways I cannot put into words and deeply renewed my commitment to be a voice for animals through LAL. This immersion was attended by people who have completed all levels of training, so if you think you might not be ready, let me assure you that you are: this is an experience not to be missed.
