This Level 2 online certification course will take you farther in Kathleen’s unique and groundbreaking Let Animals Lead® method of Animal Reiki. Whether you want to deepen your own spiritual journey with animals or to begin a professional journey towards Animal Reiki Teacher certification, this class is for you! This course is also a great way for Kathleen’s Level 3 students to brush up on the basics before teaching a Level 2 course in person.
If you have a desire to work with animals and to help bring them peace and healing, Let Animals Lead reiki is a MUST! I’ve completed level 1 and 2 with Kathleen and it has been truly life changing. Kathleen’s approach to animal reiki is based on the foundation of honoring the choice of the animal and giving them free will to share in the reiki space. To me, this is the most important aspect of her teachings. It reinforces that we don’t hold dominion over the animals but instead, are equal partners and teachers in this beautiful journey. I have been sharing reiki with my dogs on almost a daily basis since I started level one and I have seen huge behavioral changes in them. They absolutely love reiki time. The second I get out my meditation pillow, they run to their favorite spots on the couch and settle in for the mediation (not joking)! I went into this with one goal, to help animals but I have truly gained so much more than I thought possible. My reiki practice has become a way of life for me. It’s how I show up on a daily basis, for myself and for the animals. This course has given me the tools for a lifelong journey.

This class is definitely a “life changing” journey. It transcends all healing techniques with its unique teachings. My bond with animals is stronger and I feel more compassion within me as I heal with them. I will truly miss our weekly live classes but knowing that you are always there for your students makes it easy. Thank you for everything you have taught us. I highly recommend this course to all the animal lovers and people who really want to heal themselves as one’s healing journey is never complete without animals being a part of it. All you need is to have an open heart and have Kathleen as your instructor.

Kathleen’s vast experience, having taught over 60 in-person Level 2 Animal Reiki classes over the past 16 years in various shelters and sanctuaries around the U.S., makes her uniquely qualified to teach you, in an online and interactive format, the advanced tools and techniques you need to make Animal Reiki a lifelong practice. You won’t find Kathleen’s Let Animals Lead® method anywhere else, unless you train in person with one of her teachers!
Animal Reiki Source is approved by the International Association of Animal Massage & Bodywork/Association of Canine Water Therapy as an Approved Educational Provider. Contact Kathleen if you want to earn 10 CEU for this course.
Kathleen is an intelligent and intuitive teacher; the support of an 8-week-long conversation with her and other course-goers allows deep insights that would be impossible to glean from a faster-paced alternative. It is the delicate combination of ancient Japanese knowledge and modern applications from a teacher with decades of experience that makes this course so successful. Life changing.
