9am – 5pm Reiki Master Training

Reiki Master TrainingBecome a Reiki Teacher: Reiki Master Training

This Reiki Master Training Class covers:

  • Who is a Master?
  • Why Teach Reiki?
  • Cord Cutting Techniques
  • Tibetan Reiki Symbols
  • How Does an Attunement Work?
  • Attunement to the Master Level
  • Violet Breath
  • Learn and Practice the Healing Attunement
  • Learn and Practice all the Reiki Level Attunements

Advanced Reiki Training (ART) is a prerequisite to taking this Master class and is offered on Saturday April 13.

Maureen Rivelle, Reiki Master, teaches Advanced Reiki Training and the Reiki Master Class on two consecutive Saturdays. The classes cover two 7-8 hour days. The ART class, or Advanced Reiki Training, is for those who want to learn the Master Level symbols and take the next step in Reiki, including receiving an advanced level attunement, but who don’t want to teach Reiki at this time. (If you take the ART class and, in the future, decide to take the Master class, you can do so, even if years have passed.) The Master class is for those who want to move on and teach Reiki, as well as have the ability to attune their students to Reiki.

Learn and Bebefit from Reiki Healing Attunements and Aura Clearing

By the end of the two days of training, you’ll know how to set up a Crystal Grid for healing others or yourself, how to do a Healing Attunement, how to perform an Aura Clearing, and you’ll receive two attunements and 4 Master Symbols. But besides these, you will be opening up to the higher Reiki frequencies. This workshop is so healing because, in addition to the two attunements that Maureen will pass on to you, you will be practicing Reiki attunements on each other, as well as Aura Clearing and Healing Attunements. In the Master class on the second day, lots of time is devoted to learning how to do attunements and practicing them.

If you are interested in taking this Master Class, the Master Level requirements are that you are attuned to the second level of Reiki, have practiced Reiki regularly for at least 6 months, and you can draw the three Reiki 2 symbols from memory. Master Teacher Rivelle would like to know your qualifications and why you desire to move forward in your Reiki path. These questions are part of the registration process on Brown Paper Tickets, and you will see them at check out.

Open New Channels and Make Reiki Your Spiritual Life Path

As a Reiki Master candidate, you should feel you want to pursue Reiki as a large part of your spiritual life path. After all, you will be representing Reiki to the world as a Reiki Master, and people expect you to be fluent in Reiki, even when you explain that Master means Teacher in Japan and that you are but a teacher.

After the Master class, you will be able to teach and attune others to Reiki. Your Reiki channels will be opened even further and you will have many tools with which to practice and develop the quality of your Reiki energy.

All classes and workshops are held at Daylight Healing Center in Edmonds, WA. Pre-Registration is Required. Click HERE to save your spot (You will be redirected to Brown Paper Tickets).

REGISTER NOW — SPACE IS LIMITED

A Reiki Master manual is given as part of this class.

COST

The cost for this class is $450 when combined with Advanced Reiki Training the Saturday before. Otherwise, if taken alone, the cost is $250. Advanced Reiki Training is a prerequisite and needs to be taken before the Reiki Master Class.

Before You Sign Up for Advanced Reiki (ART)

Again, the prerequisite for Advanced Reiki Training is that you have taken a Reiki 2 class at least 6 months prior and that you practice Reiki regularly. A questionnaire is attached to the Registration site, so that you can inform Maureen about your qualifications and why you want to move forward in your Reiki path to this advanced level. Thank you!

9am – 5pm Advanced Reiki Training (ART)

Awesome Reiki Share

Advance Your Reiki Skills to the Next Level

Advanced Reiki Training is a workshop for Reiki students who have taken Reiki 2 at least 6 months prior, who practice Reiki regularly, and who desire a more in-depth study of Reiki techniques and meditations. In short, it’s for those students of Reiki who want to deepen their practice.

Combine with Reiki Master Training

Advanced Reiki Training (ART), can be taken alone, without the Master Class, for those who want to learn the Master Level symbols and take the next step in Reiki, including the attunement, but don’t want to teach Reiki at this time. It is given as a full day class/workshop, and is a prerequisite to the Reiki Master Class, which is given the following week. ART is a very fun and informative class, with lots of hands-on practice, and a wonderful attunement, which opens the student to higher-level Reiki frequencies. Both this class and the Master class are deeply healing, and combining the two classes is a double blessing. The package enables you to complete the Usui Reiki Training and Certification Program offered by Open Hands Reiki. Most students take both together.

Advanced Reiki Training covers:
  • Review of basics, questions since Reiki 2 attunement
  • Crystals and crystal grids in Reiki practice
  • The Master symbol, its meaning and uses
  • The Antahkarana
  • Reiki guides and a meditation to meet them
  • Attunement to Advanced Reiki Practitioner
  • Reiki Aura Clearing
  • Reiki Moving Meditation

Pre-registration is required! Click HERE to save your spot!

COST

If this class is taken alone, the price is $250. The combined cost for this class plus the Reiki Master Class on the following Saturday, is $450. This Advanced Reiki Training class is a prerequisite for the Reiki Master Class. An ART manual is included, unless you register for both classes. In the latter case, you will receive the Reiki Master Manual.

Again, the prerequisite for Advanced Reiki Training is that you have taken a Reiki 2 class at least 6 months prior and that you practice Reiki regularly. A questionnaire is attached to the Registration site, so that you can tell me your qualifications and why you want to move forward in your Reiki path to this advanced level. Thank you!

11am-1pm Horse-Human Connection – Come Hug A Horse!!!

Horse Healing -- Hug a Horse

Would you like to spiritually connect, heart to heart, with gentle horses in Snohomish? Ella, Zea, and the other horses at Centaur Development Wellness Ranch in Snohomish are natural healers and love to share their gifts of being able to connect, on a soul level, with people.

You Will Be Changed by this Magical Experience

By brushing, touching and breathing together with the horse that chooses you, a heart connection is created that will inform, nourish and inspire you. The first time I visited Centaur Development Ranch, I made a deep-heart connection with Ella and we entered into a very quiet, spiritual place. We’ve been hosting this event for two year. Time and again, attendees have had amazing experiences, from beginning the process of overcoming their fear of horses, to being surprised by the connection that can be made on a soul level, with these majestic beings.

Horses are very intuitive, and each encounter is unique

Stacy, their human, knows very well that this connection is life-enhancing in many ways, and the horses seem to sense exactly what we need at the moment we meet them.

Some of the benefits you may experience include:

  • Expanded Self-Awareness
  • Strengthening of your Intuition
  • An Increase of Vitality and Energy
  • Enhancement of your Spiritual Connectedness with All of Nature

Equine Professional and Life Coach Stacy Lewis will be facilitating. She has been partnering with her wonderful horses for more than 10 years at her spacious Snohomish horse ranch, helping people create that special horse/human bond. Please see Stacy’s Centaur Development Wellness Ranch website for more information about Stacy and her horse partners.

The price is $40. Save your spot by registering HERE.

This is one of our favorite events because, as our post-event evaluations repeatedly show us, and as all the attendees say, it’s such a magical experience. If you love horses, want to be around horses, or are simply drawn to the Spirit of the Horse, you will cherish this learning and healing opportunity.

Space is limited to 8 participants, so REGISTER soon! This is a rain or shine event as we are blessed to have a covered arena! All activities are done on the ground, so we will not be riding.

Benefits of Reiki

Reiki 1 training is a gift you give yourself, for a lifetime!

Imagine knowing that no matter what happens to you, where you go or what you believe, you will always have Reiki in your hands and heart, for deep healing and inner guidance.

Experience Pure Energy

Reiki is beautiful and pure, Universal Life Force energy that is capable of boosting spiritual growth during practice and of healing the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies of the practitioner and recipient. It is the easiest method of healing because there aren’t any complex formulas or exercises involved in its delivery.

Heal Yourself, Heal Your Friends and Animals… Forever!

I welcome you to come, learn about Reiki, and become a practitioner of Reiki (for yourself and others, including animals!) in this relaxed atmosphere and small workshop! I like to keep these workshops to 9 people maximum, so if you can’t get into this Reiki 1 Workshop this month, be assured that I will be teaching regularly throughout the year. Please try for the next one. You may contact me prior to registration with questions by clicking here.

• Reiki hand positions for treatment of self and others

The cost for the workshop is $198 and includes a manual written by the International Center for Reiki Training.

Feeling Feelings? The Plight of Empaths

Plight of EmpathsBecause many Reiki practitioners are empaths, a common discussion among practitioners revolves around the suffering that is felt when a friend or client has an illness or is going through a situation that seems sad.

Events Can’t Be Judged

As an empath, I always try to remember that what others are experiencing is not random and cruel. I have found, paraphrasing Buddhist thought, that there’s no reason to judge every life event as either good or bad. When we see everything as good or bad, we are forgetting that whatever happens is ultimately to help us all on the path to our unique wholeness. That is, life experiences cannot be relegated to a simple judgment. Life is so vast, experiences so nuanced and varied, like multifaceted gemstones, that they need to be examined and appreciated from a deeper perspective. And that examination is the job of the experiencer, not the observer. In fact, it is utterly impossible for me, as a different person with a different past history, to truly understand how my friend is experiencing that challenge!

Everything Happens for Our Highest Good

A good question that I ask myself, when confronted with this type of situation, is if I really believe that everything that happens to us is for our highest good. If my answer is yes, that means the “bad” illness or event happening to my friend isn’t actually “bad” after all. It’s ultimately for their highest good, for their growth into wholeness. Furthermore, getting really tough with my self-questioning because I can, I ask myself, do I really believe that we have angels and spirit guides helping us? Yes, I know and have experienced the fact that nobody is exempt from that help, so even my friend who is going through the tough time, has help. I trust that.

Let the Angels Carry That Empath Weight

I then give my friend and/or client, and her situation, over into the hands of her angels, taking her off my shoulders. I have to stop carrying her because she is too heavy! Thankfully, my friend and her illness are not my responsibility. Each time I feel the burden in my heart, of another friend who is going through a challenging life event, my spirit guides show me that we were never meant to carry others in this way. So I decide to honor each person’s life process by allowing them to go through their challenges as they see fit. I can offer support and Reiki, with no expectation of resolution, just for their highest good. They do the healing themselves, in their own time, and in their own way.

Your Cup Runneth Over with Love

As you honor the unique path of others by allowing them to have their challenging life experience, without judging it, you can offer love and help without becoming overburdened yourself. You can let the emotions go through you and send love. It works! As I have done with those I love who are suffering, you may find that you need to give them over to their angels again and again, as you find yourself carrying them, because you love them. But releasing them is so worth it. Your suffering will be lessened and you’ll find an ability to stay balanced and centered. In turn, your cup remains full so you can share the support you enjoy yourself.

What Holds You Back Isn’t Real

Truth lies within

We tend to see yogis, lamas, and other spiritual leaders as being in a class all their own. “That level of spirituality is unattainable for me!,” we think. We may feel “less than” and unworthy. We lament, “For God’s sake, the sheer amount of work involved to get there must be an insurmountable amount of sweat and sacrifice!” We have so many issues and ideas that stop us dead in our tracks from traversing our path of heart, our own spirituality.

Just Step Forward

But what if I were to tell you that all that holds you back is baloney? What if you were assured that all those ideas about spiritual attainment were false? What if that lama, yogi or spiritual leader gave you a pass to all that awaits you as you step forward into your own wholeness? “Just step forward,” the spiritual leader says. “Step.” That’s it.

Why do we believe that coming into our innate wholeness and balance in our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual being, is hard? Who told us that? Who told us that we don’t have the power within ourselves to evolve in every area of life, naturally? Who said that our spirituality can be found only from meditating for hours, for years? Who said you were less than or unworthy? Why do you feel your depression, anxiety, or physical illness stops you on your path? Why are all the answers offered us to help us walk our path, costly and difficult? Who benefits?

Hmmm, maybe we all were sold a bill of goods. My guidance has shown me that our answers are within each of us. We all have access to that guidance and life direction.

Your Body Holds the Truth

Let’s try an experiment. Below are some statements, which I ask you to check for truthfulness by saying them to yourself and seeing how your body responds. After each statement, if your body gets tight or tense and uncomfortable, it’s baloney, or not true. If it feels neutral or good, and you have tingles or feel relaxed, that’s your body saying it’s a true statement.

  1. My natural way of being is whole and healthy.
  2.  I don’t have the answers. Other people have the answers for me.
  3. My loving heart will lead me to my health. My body and spirit have my answers.
  4. I am unable to access what’s good for me and what my body and soul need.
  5. I am capable of finding what I need to thrive.
  6. I am not connected to spirit, and I need someone to connect me to spirituality.
  7. I am connected to Life and Love.
  8. Spirituality is all about love, and love is my natural, core way of being.

I have experienced this, that our bodies hold our truth. We feel good when we are on the path of heart. By doing exercises such as this one, we are tapping into our own spiritual and innate intelligence by listening to our bodies. Our bodies are connected to our spirits. Our spirits are connected to the eternal fountain of Life, which is an integral part of who we are.

May you find your truth in the silence of your own innate knowing.

Namaste!
