Enjoy a full weekend immersion into the healing power of Reiki at an eco-friendly mountain sanctuary at the foothills of Grand Lake, Colorado.  In this training, you will learn to receive and send Reiki energy as a means of self-treatment, treatment for others, clearing of space and long-distance healing.  

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.  "Rei" means "spiritual wisdom" and "ki" means "life force energy."  It is administered with a light, gentle touch where the Reiki healer effectively channels Reiki energy through the hand chakras.  Reiki is a safe, non-invasive practice which can be used for healing and spiritual development.  

This course is a combination of lecture, discussion and experience.  Practice time includes giving and receiving a Reiki treatment using Reiki hand positions, practice using Reiki II symbols, distance healing and practice using several Japanese Reiki techniques. In additional to learning Reiki, you will have ample opportunities to get outside, SUP, hike, meditate, learn and practice Reiki.  Each participant will become a certified Reiki Level 2 practitioner by the end of the weekend!

Carrie is a yogi, Reiki Master, mystic, lover, kindness junkie, world traveler and a modern day healer. She is passionate about helping people find good energy. Good energy happens when we are in the flow, connected, inspired, filled with purpose. She is a Reiki Master in the Usui Mikao lineage and certified by the International Center of Reiki Training (ICRT). In 2014, Carrie received the Master Level of Holy Fire Reiki®, a new type of Reiki energy developed by the ICRT. She was initially led to Reiki as a tool for awakening and healing during a time of transition in her life. Recognizing the beautiful benefits she has received from nine years of healing through Reiki, Carrie teaches Reiki to others and offers Reiki treatments at in the Denver area.

Reiki has had such a major and positive impact on my life. I cannot even begin to fully express my gratitude for the short but SO IMPORTANT treatment you helped give me during our practice in class. It shifted something in me, and it has been permanent. It allowed me to fully feel my grief and move forward. I've been doing a lot of distance reiki and using it to help my son relax and fall asleep. My husband, who is the ultimate skeptic in all things said it really helped his back pain. Also, my dog tore a tendon in her leg and I truly feel that the treatments I've given her have helped her avoid the horribly invasive surgery that was recommended by the vet to repair it. She is already running on that leg again and has nearly complete use of it. Not to mention the other benefits to my own spiritual journey which have been substantial. *Diana*

“I just want to say that my experience since the attunement has been nothing short of incredible. Things are healing in such a beautiful, gentle way, and the Reiki has really strengthened my root chakra and brought me back to earth in ways I didn’t even think were possible. I haven’t felt this at peace since I was a child. Thank you for sharing this wonderful gift!”  *Lauren*

I just want to say THANK YOU for the last Reiki session! I swear my life has done a total 180 since that session. My heart chakra seems to be more open than it has been in years and I have this inexplicable constant calmness. My drive for work and energy to start new things and explore has sky rocketed. It almost feels as though my soul entered a whole new vibrational level of sorts and the world around me came with it. That could all be a coincidence, or it could be your lovely Reiki energy. You do some beautiful work and I just wanted to let you know I’m grateful for taking your classes and receiving your healings. *Lydia*
