Natural Awakenings Indianapolis

Peace for All Beings Through Reiki

Jul 03, 2019 01:51PM

Kat Forgacs of BLISS Reiki & Animal Reiki will conduct two weekend trainings, Self-Care with Reiki on August 4 and Japanese Reiki and Animal Reiki 1 on August 10 and 11 in Bloomington, Indiana. Participants will learn how to help reduce the effects of stress for all kinds of creatures, with and without touch, using traditional Japanese reiki meditations and the Let Animals Lead method developed by Kathleen Prasad.

Forgacs, a certified teacher of Japanese reiki and animal reiki, says, “What I love about reiki is how accessible it is. We learn transferable mind-body wellness skills that we can take everywhere for sharing a peaceful, loving, grounded space of well-being with all creatures. When we learn to create and maintain inner peace, we can help our human and non-human friends to experience that same deep feeling of calm, contentment and well-being. It’s an amazing feeling.”

Instruction will take place at BLISS Reiki Studio in Bloomington. Self-Care with Reiki especially welcomes animal rescuers and first responders, and all those who are on the “front lines” of caring for others, to help with maintaining personal well-being in high-stress environments. The training program welcomes reiki practitioners from all reiki lineages and will conclude with an afternoon of guided reiki practice sessions with rescue animals on August 13. The Self-Care with Reiki training can stand alone or serve as preparation for the second weekend of training.

Workshop cost: $150-$300. Special rates for animal rescuers, first responders, veterans and resitting students. A portion of proceeds will support local animal welfare. Location: 405 W. 6th St. For more information or to register, email [email protected] or visit
