Reiki Attunements

The Reiki attunement is a powerful spiritual experience. The attunement energies are channeled into the student through the Reiki Master. When a Reiki Master initiates a student, they are gifted with the ability to then channel Reiki energy through their own hands – to heal oneself and others.

Energy/Awareness 

This workshop teaches the basics of healing yourself and others with Omnipresent HealingTM – the purest form of energy. Omnipresent Healing is remarkably effective and simple to learn. Techniques to help learn this form of healing will be explained, such as awareness of breath and body movements. This workshop will accelerate healing, well-being, and longevity.

  • Practices for realizing true state
  • Guide to heal with the highest outcome of healing in mental and physical being
  • Meditation focusing on body awareness
  • Unleashing true essence and visualizing with pure state
  • The seven levels of Human Aura

Pranayama

The definition of pranayama is regulation of the breath through certain techniques and exercises. The goal of our Pranayama Workshop is to increase the quantum life force. The energy of this life force is universal in nature – it is omnipresent (everywhere).  Mastering the awareness of breathing is an important step toward self-healing, balance and happiness. Once pranayama is learned, it positively effects actions and thoughts. Every thought changes the rhythm of the breath.

  • Learn breath of awareness
  • Awareness of breath and movement
  • Energy loss and gain with different patterns of thoughts
  • The healing energy of space between breath
  • Touching on other breathing techniques
  • Higher frequency with different techniques
  • Self-Love with breathing techniques
  • Release patterns with breath of awareness

Manifestation Wheel

The energetic magic of creating a Manifestation wheel will be taught. We will create and manifest a Manifestation Wheel. There are seven spokes starting with Intention, Peace, Energy, Guidance, Empowerment, Action, Surrender and Legacy. I have seen the magic of this projection create new space for happiness, peace, healing, and financial gains. The best benefit of all is Self-Love. Thus, creating a awareness of subtle energy raising our frequency to a level of compassion for all.

  • Create a Manifestation Wheel
  • Learn how to work with the Wheel
  • Learn different techniques to be in a state of balance when working with the wheel
  • The stronger the vision, the stronger the signal emanates to the universe
  • There are eight pieces of the wheel and you learn the importance of each piece and learn to connect with. The pieces are 1.) Intention (East), Peace (Southeast), Energy (South), Guidance (Southwest) Empowerment (West), Action (Northwest), Surrender (North), Legacy (Northeast)
  • You will learn how to raise you frequency to a balanced state for this manifestation to take place
  • You will learn to map an action plan

Mantras

Chanting mantras creates a beautiful balanced state within. Mantras release patterns for a higher frequency for a more peaceful state. Awareness with the rhythm and vibration in the moment clears what we need to release at that moment creating power of change. Creates a beautiful space to connect with all that is balanced.

  • We will learn and work with the Gayatri Mantra and is the most revered mantra
  • Working with a mantra of you choice creating space for higher frequency
  • Working with mala beads that have a 108 count.

Chanting

The sound of a Mantra can lift the believer towards the higher-self. These sound elements of Sanskrit language are permanent entities and are of everlasting significance. In the recitation of Sanskrit Mantras the sound is very important, for it can bring transformation in you while leading you to power and strength. Different sounds have different effects on human psyche. If a soft sound of wind rustling through leaves soothes our nerves, the musical note of running stream enchants our heart, thunders may cause awe and a heightened sense of alertness. The sacred utterances or chanting of Sanskrit Mantras provide us with the power to attain our goals and lift ourselves from the ordinary to the higher level of consciousness. They give us the power to cure diseases; ward off evils; gain wealth; acquire supernatural powers and for attaining blissful, balanced state and liberation.

  • You will learn origin of Mantras
  • Healing by Mantropathy
  • How to Chant
  • The healing sounds of Mantras

Journaling

Writing down thoughts and feelings is a very therapeutic activity. Journaling is a healing process to help you get in touch with the deepest of yearnings and to identify patterns of thoughts that need to change. This opens us up to more space for happiness and spiritual discovery. Pen and paper are tools for your creative expression. When the breath of Omnipresence is applied, journaling turns into a poetic song from the soul. This workshop will help you find balance and creativity through various journaling techniques.

Please purchase your own journal that you can continue to use after the retreat is over and bring it with you for this activity.
