Release Stress and Cultivate Peace and Wellness with the Help of Animals
“This weekend course was deeply inspiring and informative. Kathleen’s level of compassion, honesty, authenticity, experience and care were both palpable and refreshing. I especially loved the focus on tapping into our own indistinguishable light, and allowing that to be an invitation for the re-emerging of that same light in the other whether it be animal or human. Thank you Kathleen, and I look forward to deepening in my practice and meeting you again for the next level of training when the time is right.”

Shoden and Animal Reiki I will be taught at Lily’s Legacy Senior Dog Sanctuary, a volunteer run nonprofit organization based in Petaluma, CA. Founded in 2009, their mission is to provide a safe and loving home for senior large breed dogs who have been displaced from their homes and/or abandoned for any reason, until they are adopted or to remain at the sanctuary until they pass on.
Most Reiki I classes focus on Reiki for people, but Kathleen’s class is unique in its emphasis on Reiki for animals and the people who love them. Both the development of listening skills as well as trust in allowing animals to lead in all aspects of sessions are central to a successful Animal Reiki connection. This is why the main practices of this method are meditation, mindful presence and holding space.
