Shamanic Reiki - Master/Practitioner Level - with Lynn Roberts-Herrick 9:00 am-6:00 pm, Weekend. Description: Reiki and shamanism go hand in hand. When Dr. Mikao Usui received the Reiki symbols and the power and wisdom to use them while meditating many years ago on Mt Kuryama, he accessed the same power that is available to all of us. Shamans from time immemorial have interfaced the spirit world with the human and Usui can be considered to be one of the most powerful shamans the world has known. The practice of Reiki opens the intuition and thins the illusionary veils between spirit and matter. Within this opening lies an invitation to work directly with spirit in the healing process the way shamans and indigenous healers have done for centuries. Hands-on Reiki becomes a vital portal for the any dynamic ways of working with the Universal Life Force Energy. In this experiential weekend, Lyn Roberts-Herrick combines Tibetan Bon and Buddhist, Quechua, and Siberian teachings with hands-on Reiki. Through ceremony and practice, assisted by the four elements, plants, music, sacred stones, shamanic journeys and Reiki spirit guides, Lyn facilitates your opening to Shamanic Reiki. You will receive the Master-Practitioner Tibetan Buddhist symbol and attunement; receive another archetypal symbol for use in healing work; learn to work with your spirit guides and the four elements in the healing/cleansing process; practice body-centered journeying techniques for yourself and your clients; learn energetic extraction techniques and etheric body-work approaches; energetic practices to support spiritual healing and the path of the healer. Open to all Reiki Level II practitioners and up - masters and master-teachers as well. (This level is pre-requisite to the year long Master Teacher Apprenticeship Program.) $350 ($120 deposit w/ registration. Balance due before class). Please bring a lunch and snacks. Single Cost: $350.00. Visit http://mistymeadows.org, email: mistygoddess@attbi.com. Phone number is: 603-659-7211 and fax 603-659-8582.
