Reiki I Certification

Hosted by Brenda Harrington

$150.00 


The First Degree
Level 1 is a practitioner's initiation into Reiki and is open to anyone. The focus during Level 1 is on opening the energy channels on a physical level, allowing the practitioner to connect to the universal life force energy.
Many Reiki Masters emphasize self-Reiki as the goal of the Level 1 designation, encouraging students to focus on practicing Reiki on themselves, thereby working through their own obstacles. Many experience physical symptoms of energy in their palms after the first attunement — including tingling, coolness or heat.

Typically the Level 1 course also includes an overview of the history of Reiki, hand placements, group practice, the chakra system, how to conduct self healing and how to offer a treatment to close friends and family. You will receive a reiki treatment from your Reiki Master and practice giving a treatment on the day, you will be taught the various body positions that are more conducive to Reiki energy as well as all the necessary information required by Reiki I. You will learn hands-on as well as hands-off techniques, something that has been rediscovered in the West quite recently. This diversity of healing allows the Reiki practitioner to then improvise and innovate with their healing when they leave.


Brenda Harrington is a Reiki Master Teacher trained in the Usui, Karuna and Kundalini lineages. She teaches from her heart and bestows upon her students a sense of accomplishment, love and a further quest for learning.

What is Fascia? Fascia is connective tissue that runs continuously throughout the entire body. Why is it important? Fascia is like cling (Saran) wrap. When working properly the Fascia stores water for the muscles and increases stability. Unfortunately, it can very easily get stuck to itself and decrease circulation, decrease range of motion and increase muscle tension. What will we cover? In this workshop we will learn how to rehydrate the tissues, release tension and increase blood flow & lymphatic circulation. Posture will begin to realign back to its natural curve patterns and you'll leave with tools to help you maintain and enhance these improvements on your own!

Winter Solstice Candle Light Flow

With Brenda

$20

Winter Solstice comes at the middle of winter and marks the longest night. It is out of the darkness that flowers eventually emerge, and inspiration for change transpires. Surrender to your dreaming and celebrate the dark where your inner life resides, re-light your inner light. Intention setting will take place at the beginning of class (what is the change you would like to see) and a special candle lighting ceremony will occur to mark the beginning of brighter days!

Gentle Flow
Restorative Sequence
Yoga Nidra, Reiki and more!

The winter solstice, also known as midwinter, is an astronomical phenomenon marking the day with the shortest period of daylight and the longest night of the year. In the Northern Hemisphere this is the December solstice and in the Southern Hemisphere this is the June solstice. Worldwide, interpretation of the event has varied across cultures, but many have held a recognition of rebirth, involving holidays, festivals, gatherings, rituals or other celebrations around that time.

2 Attendees are required to hold the session. 


The First Degree


Level 1 is a practitioner's initiation into Reiki and is open to anyone. The focus during Level 1 is on opening the energy channels on a physical level, allowing the practitioner to connect to the universal life force energy.


Many Reiki Masters emphasize self-Reiki as the goal of the Level 1 designation, encouraging students to focus on practicing Reiki on themselves, thereby working through their own obstacles. Many experience physical symptoms of energy in their palms after the first attunement — including tingling, coolness or heat.

Typically the Level 1 course also includes an overview of the history of Reiki, hand placements, group practice, the chakra system, how to conduct self healing and how to offer a treatment to close friends and family. You will receive a reiki treatment from your Reiki Master and practice giving a treatment on the day, you will be taught the various body positions that are more conducive to Reiki energy as well as all the necessary information required by Reiki I. You will learn hands-on as well as hands-off techniques, something that has been rediscovered in the West quite recently. This diversity of healing allows the Reiki practitioner to then improvise and innovate with their healing when they leave.


Brenda Harrington is a Reiki Master Teacher trained in both the Usui and Karuna lineages. She teaches from her heart and bestows upon her students a sense of accomplishment, love and a further quest for learning.


Materials provided and a certificate of completion will be issued after the session.

Steadiness and Ease, Refining Your Sun Salutations

With Laurel Marsh and Abigail Bell

$30.00

Often taught in vinyasa and power yoga classes, sun salutations are a meditative practice in which we bow to and honor the light of the sun. They are also a great way to open and strengthen the body, while linking breath to movement.


Join Laurel and Abigail for a two-hour workshop in clarifying the biomechanics of Sun Salutations. Areas of focus will include the shoulders, core, pelvis, and legs, sparking a new awareness to the essential movements of a vinyasa/power class. Sections of the class will include a creative use of props to help you feel and practice the alignment that makes sense in your body.


Class will include a warm up, time to play and explore, flow, and a cool down, leaving you feeling well rounded and energized for the rest of your day.

Beneficial for those new to vinyasa/power yoga, regular practitioners, and new yoga instructors.

Make Your Own Mala!

Make your own mala with Jill Barry of Fat Baby Malas

In this workshop we will explore the history of mala beads, their meaning, and how to use them. Each participant will go through the very special process of creating their own full length (108 bead) stretch mala, using sacred wood, sterling silver, and a gemstone focal bead.

All malas will then be cleansed with sage, and we will close the workshop with a relaxing and restorative meditation practice while learning how to put our malas to use. You will walk away with an understanding of what mala beads are, and how to incorporate your beautiful new set into your own meditation practice.

No experience required. Wear comfortable clothing.

$75 (includes a $40 materials fee)
