JUNE 2017

Reiki 1 Training with Danielle Fowler & Melanie Wassman
Friday, June 23rd, 1:00 – 6:00pm
Reiki I training prepares you to provide Reiki healing on yourself and encourages the practitioner to have direct experience with Reiki energy. Level 1 training is a practitioner’s initiation into Reiki and is open to anyone. The focus during Level 1 is for self-healing through balancing and harmonizing the major energy centers known as chakras. The Level 1 initiation opens the central energy channels on a physical level, allowing the practitioner to connect to the universal life force energy. It connects the student to the universal energy permanently, allowing them to channel the energy whenever they wish. We emphasize self-Reiki as the goal of the Level 1 designation, encouraging students to focus on practicing Reiki on themselves, thereby doing the personal work to clear obstacles and experience optimal wellbeing. This training includes an instructional manual. You are in safe hands with Reiki Masters, Danielle and Melanie and will be taught in a supportive and nurturing environment. Space is limited! $225.00 pre-registration is required

Restorative + Reiki with Geanette Floyd
Friday, July 14th, 6:30pm – 7:45pm
You’re invited to feel the amazing benefits of Restorative Yoga practice and Reiki healing touch. Restorative Yoga is a gentle style of yoga that encourages conscious relaxation. Restorative postures elicit the “relaxation response,” a feature of the parasympathetic nervous system, which balances the body and mind. In Restorative Yoga, we breathe with awareness and practice the art of letting go, of being rather than doing. This state of deep relaxation not only alleviates stress but also strengthens the immune system while generating serenity and peace of mind. This class will include the nurturing, relaxing and healing touch of Reiki. $17 drop-in or use your class series. FREE for Monthly Members. Space is limited, please arrive early.

Introduction to Sanskrit with Danielle Fowler
Sunday, August 27th, 1:00pm – 6:00pm
Sanskrit is an ancient language, but it is far from archaic. Sanskrit terms provide a level of precision that underlies both yoga practice and philosophy. For most of us, however, pronouncing the vowels and consonants of Sanskrit accurately can be challenging. Once the alphabet has been learned it is possible to develop a vocabulary of Sanskrit terms and to recite mantras with assurance. This is a fun process, and one that leads to a wider understanding of yoga itself. $75 pre-registered; $85 day of

SEPTEMBER 2017

Reiki 2 Training with Danielle Fowler and Melanie Wassman
Friday, September 15th, 1:00pm – 6:00pm
Reiki 2 training is defined by a focus on practicing Reiki on others, as well as an expanded opening of the energy channels.
In the Reiki 2 initiation, the central channel is opened to a higher vibration and the amount of energy that can be channeled increases. Practitioners receive the “Reiki symbols” and Level 2 attunement. The Reiki symbols allow the practitioner to connect more deeply to the universal energy, as well as draw on the qualities that the symbols represent. This includes the ability to provide distance Reiki, or sending healing energy to individuals wherever they may be. (Level 1 is required to receive Level 2) $225 pre-registration required.
