Celtic Reiki Level 2 with David Painter
June 8 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm$130.00
In the 2nd level of Celtic Reiki, we work not only with healing, but also with manifestation. The Celts were renowned for their skills in healing, manifestation, and attunement to the natural world. In this workshop we will add 10 more Tree Ogham symbols, and work with distance healing. The strength of the Celtic Reiki energy you are able to access will be increased in all areas.
Celtic Reiki is a form of holistic therapy that helps connect you to the natural world around you. In the same way as a stroll through a forest, or a day at the beach can refresh, relax, and invigorate, Celtic Reiki philosophy recognizes that by reconnecting to the Earth we can improve our health and sense of well-being. Life, especially in large towns or cities, can disconnect us from nature. We feel separate or distinct from the world and the cycles of life. Many of the innate sensory and perceptive skills we possess have become atrophied, whilst our species has become very disrespectful of home, ourselves, and the very things we need to survive, such as air, water, and a stable environment.
By shifting our perspective to one more akin with Reiki, we experience the subtle, yet extraordinary wisdom and power of this life-force. Celtic Reiki practice uses this expanded awareness to shift us towards the natural world.
The Celtic Reiki method was pioneered by Martyn Pentecost, a British therapist and personal development mentor. Initially taking the approach of forming a synthesis between Reiki practice and Celtic philosophy, the system used 18 original essences (the vibrations of trees) and a handful of methods derived from Usui Reiki practice.
In this level 2 class, we will work with ten additional Ogham symbols and their trees: Ash, Oak, Holly, Spindle, Apple, Hazel, Ivy, Vine, Willow, and Rowan. Each participant will have opportunities to increase intuition and therefore their capacity to work with these healing energies, both for ourselves and others. Each participant will receive an attunement to Level II of Celtic Reiki, and a certificate.
Pre-requisite is attunement to Celtic Reiki I.
Class will be held at Radiance, 9 W Grant St., in the heart of downtown Lancaster, PA. Call 717-290-1517, or stop in to register. Cost is $130 in advance, $140 on the day of the class if there is space available.
