    What a remarkable experience all around for me! Kathleen Prasad is a masterful, eloquent and empowering teacher! Our group of incredible women supported one another along with the many animals living at CARE. Letting animals lead the way in sharing Reiki is key and we experienced that first hand. Meditating with power animals rocks! My heart and mind are more open because of the animals way of being during our Reiki sessions together. I truly came away inspired and empowered to teach Animal Reiki abundantly throughout my community, in shelters, sanctuaries and beyond. Many thanks to the CARE team, SARA and most certainly these devoted leaders, Kathleen Prasad & Leah D’Ambrosio! I highly recommend taking this experiential training!

    A life-changing experience. The learning and growth over these three days was so much more than expected or imagined. An amazing experiential journey into “Being Reiki” & “Letting the Animals Lead”. Meditating with the animals at CARE, Kathleen’s & Leah’s guidance and support, and all of the beautiful hearts in the class made this an experience I will never forget. My meditations have deepened and I learned so much from the animals. I am filled with gratitude for the huge hearts, human and animal and the healing shared. It was an honor to be in the presence of the animals at CARE and all of the wonderful ladies in the class. Can’t wait to do it again!

    I loved this experience. I did it about a year and a half ago. The reason why I’m writing this now, I’m thinking of doing again in 2019 and I wanted to check out the dates.

    Beautiful healing, growing, learning, deepening, expanding, grounding experience! There are no words to truly express how magnificent and life changing Reiki 3/Animal Reiki Teacher Training at CARE is! I just attended for the second year in a row and it was yet again truly amazing. The animals at CARE are wise, powerful teachers. Kathleen and Leah are beautiful souls who support and guide students with love and compassion. My heart is full from the time shared with the animals, the teachers and my wonderful classmates. We all supported and lifted each other up as we healed and learned at CARE. There are no words to truly express the magnitude of this experience. Not only did I come away with ways to be a better teacher, I came away with a deeper connection, a more expansive heart and a firm grounding in my daily practice and teaching. The animals of CARE stay with you long after the class. Forever in gratitude to CARE, Kathleen, Leah, my classmates and to SARA for this life altering growth experience!

    The Reiki 3 & Animal Reiki Teacher Training at CARE was a fantastic life experience. It was amazing to practice Reiki with rescued wild animals who are great teachers. Kathleen and Leah created a compassionate and cheerful space where everyone was welcomed to actively participate. Kathleen offered beautiful meditations and shared many of her experiences which led her to create the Let Animals Lead® method. We had a lot of opportunity to practice meditations in nature and deeply connect with animals and trees living at CARE. I will never forget the heart-to-heart connections made in Apopka. It was an honor to be part of the 10th edition and a seed to share more and teach has been planted in me. You will leave the retreat inspired, at peace and empowered. Deep gratitude to the CARE Foundation team, Kathleen and Leah, and all participants for sharing this space! Thank you!

    Honestly, just WOW. This was such an amazing experience to undertake – Kathleen is such a kind and generous teacher, and her course completely changed how I think of Reiki as it relates not only to animals, but to myself and to everything around me. It has shifted my way of thinking into a whole new stratosphere 🙂 The C.A.R.E. Foundation was so lovely, and we all had a great time, even though the temperature dropped and the wind would cut you to the quick! So many beautiful animals to spend time with and enjoy! I would absolutely recommend her course to anyone interested in becoming an Animal Reiki Teacher using the Let Animals Lead (r) method, or even just to enhance your own practice. And if you can attend the C.A.R.E. Foundation location, even better! <3
