Should you combine them with other crystals and why
Different vibrations for different folks
And much more

This class is for the person who may be just getting started or may have some experience but wants to move further along in their crystal healing journey.

Not a lecture but an interactive class where you will gain hands on experience working/holding with different crystals. Discussion of using crystals on Chakras, cleansing, programming them for specific purposes and more. 

Bring in your own favorite crystal for others to see, adult show and tell. Learn about what you and others are using and why.

Class should run approximately an hour and a half

Reiki Share

Have you ever had a Reiki Treatment?

Come join us as we share universal life force energy with everyone who attends. With multiple Reiki practitioners in house every person that attends Reiki share is worked on at least once if they want. There are plenty of experienced people attending the share that can answer any questions you may have.

We can always use an extra massage table, please bring yours for use during the evening, especially if you want to practice as well as receive.

Every Reiki share is different, all have different levels of spirituality depending on many aspects that can occur. From the planets and the stars, to the levels and experience of the practitioners to how you are currently feeling about yourself will all have an effect on the evening. Our best recommendation is come open minded, come wanting to heal and learn and you will gain from the experience what you put into it. Work at the soul level to heal as a human and over time you will find what you seek.

What is a Reiki share? A healing session with a group of people sharing energy healing. The group trades off giving and receiving Reiki to each other. If you have not had level one training yet please come to receive Reiki and learn about how to begin offering Reiki to your friends and family for healing.

For 2 + hours we will have multiple tables set up and multiple practitioners offering services. Please join us in sharing the gift of Reiki with others.

May 16th 2020
12 AM - 5 PM
We are so excited to welcome you to the world of Reiki Healing. Please join us for level 2 training taught by Master Teacher Jeff Mankin

• Reiki Level 2, also called 2nd degree Reiki, is the professional practitioner’s level and the main focus is about: 
• Becoming a professional Reiki practitioner with the intention of opening a healing practice whether professionally or personally
• Distant/absentee healing 
• Group healing 
• The student receives one attunement, in which your heart chakra is opened to receive and experience unconditional universal love and compassion 
• Reiki Level 1 was about self-healing and sensing the energy - the symbols are placed within the student’s aura and the energy of the symbols is unconsciously dispersed through the hands
• In Reiki Level 2 you learn to consciously call the energy - the energy of the symbols is consciously directed by the healer for specific purposes

In Reiki Level 2 you will be taught a number of Reiki symbols. These symbols enhance the Reiki in numerous ways.

Cost is $150 paid in advance please
Pre-requisite will be level one certificate with class completed over 90 days ago.

Reiki and the Ego

Taught by - Jeffrey Mankin
Reiki Master Teacher
date and time to be determined
Prerequisite to Reiki Level 3 Master class
By this time you should be well aware as a Reiki 2 practitioner that Reiki is not yours.  It is you, but you do not own it, you cannot control it in the when, why, how aspect. 
As Reiki is not yours and you have no control over how it works you have to put your ego in check.  It is not you doing a healing for your client, it is the universe allowing you to channel the energy to help your client heal.  In order for Reiki to fully flow through you need to have the portal open as much as possible. 
Having your ego in check, understanding that the Reiki is not yours and it just will flow when you let it by moving your ego to the side and allowing Reiki to just do it's job. Over much practice you can master this technique so that you can allow the Reiki to flow through you in the most abundant amount possible.
I ask you to take this class so you have a fully understanding, this class is to make you humble before you take the step to master.  Be humble, be Reiki, be love.

Class is approximately one hour

Have you ever wondered about energy medicine? Healing modalities such as hands on healing (Reiki), crystal healing, the human Chakra system and how to work with the energies of mother earth. For those looking to go a little deeper or to gain knowledge to help your family and friends we welcome you to this introductory one on one course.

In this class we will explore and try to understand how these natural healing techniques can assist in everyday living and positively affect our health.

Charles Tony Siegert is an attuned Reiki Master Teacher and Energy Healer. Tony utilizes Energy Medicine in his healing and lives to share his unique feelings on the subject. Tony's gifts were handed down through generations. Tony's mother instilled this knowledge and understanding into her family so that they could continue the healing traditions, to help others and share this medicine for everyone in need around them.

This is an introductory class for anyone interested in learning about Energy Work and the sciences behind it. However, Tony's class can differ every time by person and subject.

This class will help explain the mechanics of Energy Medicine and its benefits.
