Send Reiki energy to your animal’s past

Registration is at the bottom of this page.


Is your pet adopted?  Has he or she experienced trauma, abuse or neglect?  Are they pre or post a surgical process?  Do you want to help wild animals or animals suffering in unnatural settings?  Then this might be the course for you.

I meet people who love animals, have taken Reiki I and II and are now looking for ways to practice and refresh that learning.

In this course, we will review the Reiki power symbols for physical (Reiki I) and emotional (Reiki II) healing, and the Reiki II steps to send energy back to a particular developmental stage, known trauma, or life circumstance.  This course focuses on dogs and cats however the process easily adapts for use with horses and other types of animals.

Course Description

Is your animal friend troubled by his or her past?

Puppies and kittens, like children, have specific needs at each of their natural stages of

development.  Lessons learned become their foundation for interacting with the world around them. Any trauma or disruption in your pet’s past, especially during these critical stages of early life, may last a lifetime. Reiki may be able to help smooth, minimize or repair your pet’s past bringing a sense of well-being for them today and going forward.

This course focuses on the steps to send Reiki back to improve your pet’s sense of well-being by releasing energetic blocks that may be at the root of behavioral, emotional, spiritual or physical conditions.   Methods we cover may be used on you, your animal friends, other people, and wild animals at a distance.

This course focuses on sending Reiki healing energy back to our pet’s early stages of development.

At the end of this course students will have:

  • Reviewed Reiki 1 & 2 concepts and symbols
  • Reviewed the importance of self-treatments
  • Practiced the process of distant Reiki
  • Understand the stages of both puppy and kitten development
  • Take away – develop a custom plan to send Reiki to your pet’s stages of development
