Reiki Classes Seattle

Just had a wonderful Reiki 1 Class this weekend...I can't believe we had this group of little boys trying to peer in our front window just as we began the Attunement process, children are so drawn to the Reiki energy! Luckily the attunements take place on the other side of the shoji screen, so they didn't get much of a show.  As soon as the attunements were over, the gang of little boys were gone, as quick as they came, weird, huh? Maybe they are future Reiki students... It is so fun to see all the reasons Reiki calls students & the transformations beginning after the Reiki Attunement. Can't wait to see what the 21 day cycle holds for this group! Hope to see them all back for Reiki 2 Class in the Fall or an upcoming Reiki Circle (next one is Friday 7/11/14 evening) If you are interested in taking a Reiki Class here's our upcoming classes:

Tracy’s Postpartum Reiki Special

Posted on: June 11th, 2014 by healing_arts_admin
  tracy_Postpartum_reiki Tracy Pitcock wrote this heartfelt essay about her experience with Postpartum Depression, she is offering a Reiki special to all new moms who may be suffering with similar symptoms. She has invited moms to bring their babes to their sessions if they like! Right now 1 Hour Reiki w/ Tracy for $60 for new moms! There seems to be such a stigma that comes along with admitting you have Postpartum Depression. I wasn't ashamed of the fact that I suffered from ppd, just too tired and hungry to deal with it. My husband and I moved from Indiana to Seattle in May 2006, far away from all of our close friends and family. I conceived our son a week after we signed our first lease on a cozy 500 sqft, 1 bedroom apartment. Everything fell into place quickly and I enjoyed a wonderfully uneventful pregnancy. On January 24th, a little after 2:00 a.m. I started to feel funny...by 5:30 a.m. we were at the hospital... 6:53 a.m. we laid eyes on our son for the first time. You might say (and many have) how lucky I was to have such a short, uncomplicated, unmedicated, easy delivery. It sounds great, except it wasn't. I was so amazingly overwhelmed! Not by this beautiful, perfect baby I now held in my arms, but by the fact that my brain hadn't caught up with what had physically just took place. I have a very hard time saying this, but it wasn't love at first sight... my first failure as a mama, or at least that what I was telling myself. We went home the following evening and the feelings started to settle in... Fear, loneliness, overwhelming tiredness, but I sucked it up and started the long, daunting process that was now my life... Change diaper, nurse, change diaper, rock to sleep, try to settle down enough to sleep myself, sleep for about 15 minutes before being woke up by the cries of hunger and needing a new diaper. Every once in a while I was able to gather food to eat during the time I should have been resting, but then I would set down to eat only to be called again by the cries of hunger from the boy. I felt like I was a slave to his every whimper and my life no longer mattered. I also knew I was going to totally screw up his life and never be able to keep him safe. I couldn't open my shades and look out at the people on the street going about their lives as if nothing had changed. Everything had changed! Why did I want a baby so bad? What was I thinking? Why doesn't anyone talk about the reality of having a newborn? How would I ever survive this? Our son is now 7 and he is so amazingly creative, thoughtful, funny, compassionate, silly, and a budding environmentalist. I can't imagine our lives without him! I was fortunate enough to have my mom and dad move out here a little before the boy turned 2. At that point I was finally able to confront my postpartum depression. I went through many sessions of talk therapy and came to terms with all of the negativity associated with my first few years of motherhood. I only wish I had know about Reiki back then, but I still probably wouldn't have gone. Could I bring the baby with me? Probably not. I don't know, or for that matter trust anyone to babysit him. What if he gets hungry? He's hungry all of the time and I don't pump! I want to invite you to bring your baby with you. Reiki can be done sitting, standing, or lying down. Let your baby sleep in the car seat while you relax next to them receiving Reiki. If they need to be held or fed, we can move to a chair. If you've master the art of nursing while laying down, you can simply change positions. As an added bonus (for me) I will hold your baby while you take a few minutes for yourself and let the Reiki continue to flow to them, if desired.

Reiki 2 this LUCKY Friday the 13th!

Posted on: June 8th, 2014 by healing_arts_admin
Lucky_Reiki_13 This Friday the 13th marks a very powerful Astrological time, with the waxing to Full moon in Sagittarius, we should be on task for learning those tricky distance Reiki Symbols, essentially learning Japanese! This is why I do the Reiki 2 Attunement the evening before, in this case Friday the 13th, which just so happens to me one of my favorite celebratory days! I don't see Friday the 13th as bad luck at all, but more of a powerful time, instead of a triskaidekaphobia(one who fears 13), I guess I'm more of triskaidekalover (one who loves 13!). In Goddess traditions, 13 is said to represent the average menstrual cycles a woman has in one calendar year, 13 being a lucky number for Fertility rites. In Wiccan traditions, women would gather to do magical spells on Friday the 13th & a Friday the 13th with a Full Moon Sagittarius (the Archer) the week before Summer Solstice would be considered extremely auspicious!  Perhaps it is only b/c we are living in such a patriarchal society that Friday the 13th has been shun as unlucky.  Even in China, the number 13 is revered, at New Years Moon Cakes are served on a platter of 13 for extra luck. I feel lucky to be teaching Reiki 2 on this very LUCKY! Friday the 13th of June, 2014. Reiki 2 Symbols for Distant Healing… In Second Degree Reiki training you will receive the Reiki symbols in a series of attunements. The symbols are like keys that open the mind to even greater healing powers. This form of Reiki can be used for distance healing, across time and space, for people, animals, and situations. It is particularly helpful in hospice situations. You will also learn how to clear and protect spaces. You will learn visualization techniques to assist memorizing the symbols. This form of Reiki is especially beneficial to therapists, counselors, or teachers who want to bring healing into their work, but touch is not within their scope of practice. We have 2 spaces left for this Reiki workshop!!! Sign up now 🙂
