What You'll Learn in Level 1 of Let Animals Lead® Animal Reiki:

  • Traditional Practices: Explore traditional Shoden (Level 1) Japanese Reiki practices and how to modify them so that animals can lead the sessions.
  • Ethical Physical Contact: Discover when and how to use physical contact ethically during an Animal Reiki session, along with hands-on protocol for humans.
  • Positive Focus: Learn the importance of focusing on the 'paws'itive instead of worry during Animal Reiki sessions, and how this shift fosters trust and connection.
  • Energy Centers: Delve into the three energy centers and how to develop them for gentle, animal-led meditations.
  • Step-by-Step Guidance: Receive detailed guidance for conducting successful Animal Reiki sessions.
  • Practitioner Code of Ethics: Get an overview of the Animal Reiki Practitioner Code of Ethics and understand why these principles are crucial to your practice.
  • Holding Space vs. Doing: Grasp the difference between holding space for an animal and “doing” an energy treatment “to” an animal, and why this distinction matters.
What You'll Receive in Level 1 of Let Animals Lead® Animal Reiki:
  • Comprehensive Manual: A 250-page manual/workbook filled with inspiring, interactive teachings. This manual alone is worth the price of the class!
  • Daily Practice Assignments: Daily practice assignments and weekly homework to guide your journey (and continue your journey!)
  • Certification: A beautiful certificate to show your accomplishment and official certification. This certificate may serve as a prerequisite to any Let Animals Lead® Level 2 course.
  • SARA Membership: An invitation to join SARA (Shelter Animal Reiki Association) as a Practitioner member.
Course Requirements:
  • In-Person Participation: Students must participate in all sessions. Attendance is required for certification. (If you can't attend a session, make up sessions can be arranged, $50/hour) 
  • Tuesday evening classes 6-9 are in St. Catharines and Saturday morning classes 9am-noon will be at the Welland SPCA.
  • Weekly Homework: Daily practice and bring a question(s) to our classes. Sign up in advance to receive the manual and complete pre-reading.
  • Animal Companions: Students must have animals to practice with daily. A variety of animals is preferable (ask neighbors and friends to support you!), but a minimum of 1 or 2 of your own is needed. Reach out to Teresa if you need help with this.
  • Daily Meditation: Commit to 10-20 minutes/day of daily meditation practice during the course. This will help you experience the teachings personally, laying the foundation for a lifelong Animal Reiki practice. With dedication, Animal Reiki can transform your life and the lives of the animals you love!
