    I completed Level 1 and Level 2 Let Animals Lead Animal Reiki with Kathleen and all I can say is Wow! If you’re unsure whether to enrol, don’t hesitate, these courses are awesome. It will likely change your life, it has mine!
    Kathleen is an excellent teacher and shares so much personal knowledge to enable others to make a difference to the lives of animals. The courses are fun and easy to follow, you get to know your classmates, and gain so much knowledge and inspiration from each other. Kathleen helps you to truly feel part of the Let Animals Lead journey. The Precepts, daily meditations, and practise have totally changed my life, and the life journey I am taking. Giving animals the opportunity to ‘take the lead’ has created a closer bond between myself and my own animals, but it’s also evident that all animals I offer the Reiki space to love being given the choice. I’m so pleased I took the decision to enrol on these courses and can’t wait to continue my journey with Level 3. Thank you Kathleen, my life now shines even more brightly.

    I thought the Level 1 course was great, but honestly, it wasn’t until I finished Level 2 Let Animals Lead® that I realized just how much of a game changer it was for me (and my animals)! My mind is pretty blown right now and Kathleen is so knowledgeable and forthcoming with her wisdom that I’m sad I won’t get to meet with her each week anymore to pick her brain. When I started this class, I was already a meditator, but now I have a literal grab bag of meditation goodies that I can pick and choose from depending on my mood, state of mind, and what I’m trying to accomplish (with animals or just with myself). The Reiki symbols and mantras opened up a whole new channel of connection between myself and the animals I meditate around. They opened a door that allowed all sorts of animals to just stroll through and share space with me—even the wild magpies in my yard and the dragonflies I love so much. Seriously, GAME CHANGER! I can’t emphasize enough how much deeper the connections to animals become with the Level 2 training. Highly recommend!

    I feel honoured to have studied Levels 1 and 2 of the Let Animals Lead Method of Animal Reiki with Kathleen. Kathleen is an amazing teacher, has crafted a beautiful course, and created a unique and transformational learning experience.

    Animal Reiki has truly opened my heart to the most beautiful way of connecting with the animals, and I feel blessed to have met the most amazing and supportive group of Reiki friends through this course. I love the Reiki journey and am excited to “be” where the animals lead me next.

    The Let Animals Lead Method is personally transformational. Level 1 provides a foundation for animal reiki. Level 2 builds on this a foundation and provides an in-depth journey into emotions and healing. Each level progressively builds upon the other. Kathleen’s approach is clear, concise, and uncomplicated. Her teaching method is effective and refreshing. Kathleen encourages sharing dialogue and experiences, and she is easily accessible. One feels motivated and inspired to practice her methods and implement these methods in daily life. Let Animals Lead is truly a lifelong journey.

    This course was life-changing for me. I have taken Reiki 1 and 2 with “people” Reiki teachers. I had taken classes in “Let the Animals Lead” Reiki and took Leve1 1 this summer. Taking Level 2 with Kathleen deepened my understanding of Reiki and furthered my spiritual path as a Reiki practitioner.

    The weekly classes afforded a lot of time to practice the meditations, symbols and mantras. We had time to take our questions and experiences to Kathleen and learn from her teachings and the other students.

    Kathleen is an amazing, intelligent, spiritual teacher who shared her knowledge and own path so generously and graciously! I will miss the class, but I intend to stay involved in SARA and “Let the Animals Lead” Reiki!

  6. Karen Satz

    This class was a life-changer for me. I had taken Levels 1 and 2 with “people” Reiki teachers, and had taken Level 1 with Kathleen in the summer. This class deepened my understanding of the precepts, the symbols, the mantras and the power of the Let Animals Lead system of Reiki. The weekly format with time to practice every day for a week before going on to the next class was helpful. I could really delve into Reiki and learn the practices.

    During the classes, we had time to ask questions and review our experiences with Kathleen. She is an amazing, giving, spiritual person, who shared her knowledge and her own path so generously. I am so grateful for this experience, and I will miss the classes!

    I have been doing reiki since 2017 so once I completed Level 1 in August 2021 I wanted to jumped right into Level 2 and I am so glad I did. I have relearned reiki in a totally different way and I feel for the better. I never practiced daily only missed a few days while we were on vacation. I was never taught mediation in human reiki, I just love mediating with animals. I so need daily mediation in my life. That has been an on and off thing for me as well. I struggle with anxiety and when I do my practice I feel it just melt away for me. Relearning the symbols in level 2 was eye opening and I have fallen in love with them. Kathleen is an amazing teacher, who got me to relearn and fall in love with reiki in a totally different way. I also love that you learn and practice over the course of 8 weeks instead of one long day. It gives you time to practice and get feed back from your homework and to hear others share their experiences as well so you also learn from you classmates. I’ve had so many amazing experiences with my animal teachers through level 1 and level 2. The biggest take away for me is that my animal teachers got me to trust and believe in myself and what I was doing. I could go on an on about let animals lead, it has really changed my life for the better. It’s helping me live the precepts and be reiki and see with my reiki eyes. I’ve never been called to teach and I’m still not sure about teaching but at some point I do plan on going on to level 3 because I know I will get so much more out of the let animals lead.

    Through this Level 2 class, I grew even more in my Reiki practice. I loved learning about the symbols and developing a relationship with each one. The online group atmosphere was absolutely wonderful and an essential aspect to the learning experience. The way Kathleen teaches Reiki is like no other. Supportive and clear, rich with knowledge and experience. Her teachings will permeate your personal and professional Reiki practice – and take it to new heights.

  9. Laura Marie Appleman

    Absolutely am amazing class to build on Level 1. These practices really help take you deeper in your Reiki practice and build your connection to all things. I love the 8 week format because it gives you some time to work with the tools and techniques. Every week you go back and review with Kathleen what worked and what didn’t work. Plus being able to listen to others experiences is incredibly helpful. I definitely recommend this class.

    Reiki Level 2 with Kathleen took me into the depths of the teachings and the heights of the sacred practices. It taught me to look at Reiki with new Reiki-eyes. I learnt how to slow down and appreciate each and every moment of the practice. The classes were almost magical as I connected with my fellow-practitioners and in each class, Kathleen guided us into a magical meditative experience. Being on zoom over video did not make the magic any less. In fact, personally for me, I am so grateful that I could attend this online. I live in India and not in a position to go on a physical trip to the US to attend an in-person class.
    The classes and the assignments are fun and intense and personally they have helped me develop a deeper bond with Reiki and a deeper bond with the animals. And the animals love it. I have seen how they instantly relax when I imbibe the principles of Let Animals Lead that Kathleen teaches vs the conventional human-focused Reiki techniques. It’s a must-do journey for any Animal Reiki practitioner.

  11. Susan Rhem-Westhoff

    This is my second class with Kathleen and I wish it hadn’t ended! I looked forward to the class every week and hope to take Level 3 with her soon. The meditations and daily practice have changed my life. Her passion and dedication for teaching and leading her students on a journey filled with compassion and connectedness with all beings, especially our beautiful animals, is second to none. I learned so much both in Level 1 and Level 2 and was able to do so with 7 other beautiful people. I am so thankful for Kathleen and the opportunity I have had to be her student.

  12. Ingrid

    This class was awesome! I learned so much about animal reiki, but also about myself and the kind of person I am and want to be. Kathleen is such a loverly person and she instructs with an open heart, an open mind and without judgement. I look forward to one day taking Reiki 3 and meeting her in person!

  13. Mary Cefalu

    This class not only provided well thought out and delivered material about how to offer Reiki to animals, but it also changed the way that I engage with other people, situations, and myself. The 8 week online format is quite effective because you are able to go more in-depth on the topics and you have time to practice and absorb the material before learning new concepts. And, because the class is capped at 8 students, you have plenty of opportunity for engaging with Kathleen and the other students. It is such a blessing to be able to engage directly with Kathleen.
