Animal & Equine Reiki Master Practitioner Course

animal reiki courseTrain at the Epona Equine Reiki Centre

The Animal & Equine Reiki training courses are presented by Vicky and Sarah Berrisford; both are Professional Horse Trainers, BHS Stage 3 and Reiki Master/ Teachers.

The Animal & Equine Reiki Master Practitioner Course is open to students who have completed Reiki 2 (Okuden) in Reiki and who have also taken the Animal Reiki or Equine Reiki practitioner course Levels 1 and 2.

We have a fabulous set up here in Lincolnshire, using a selection of equines from our stud, training yard and livery. We also have 3 Cocker Spaniels and a Miniature Schnauzer, all of which have their own ways and personalities, they are an interesting mix to work with and learn about the best ways to approach treatments. Our Pygmy goats, Lucy and Lola, also play a vital role in the Animal Reiki Courses.

Course description

In this course we work on further developing our sensitivity and intuition and have the use of new exercises which are primarily aimed at animals which have been through traumatic ordeals and/or have severe emotional issues which are affecting their quality of life. We delve into the practices of visualisation, intuition and intent to a high degree.

We start day 1 with the exercise ‘clearing your mind.’ It can take some practice to completely clear your mind, without visualising anything, just being there in the moment and open. This exercise is of great importance during our work with Reiki and animals as it is from this state that we can begin to further see, feel and hear what the animal wishes to portray.

Working with the aura is greatly emphasised on this course; not only being able to perceive and empower the animals aura, but to become aware of how our aura is reacting to situations. With practice we can notice if our aura deflates or shines in the company of others, we can read clients and friends auras, by asking questions and seeing how the aura responds we can get a fuller picture of what is going on. In relation to giving Animal Reiki treatments we are able to see how the owner and their animal’s aura interact. We learn to calm the aura in cases where the animal is excitable, nervous or stressed and we learn to empower the aura where the animals’ energy is depleted.

As with the ‘human’ Master Reiki course, you are introduced to the power of the kotodoma; the sacred sounds. Using the kotodoma to calm, heal, empower and balance. The kotodoma seem to elicit stronger energy to animals and they in turn listen and feel with familiarity to the sounds.

We put into practice an adapted empowerment technique for animals that Sarah was guided to. We can empower the animal to help him regain his energy and to keep him balanced when those around him are not.

You will also learn how to ‘become’ the animal, to feel as he does, this can help in many circumstances, from fear of fireworks to anxious travellers.

Another symbol; The Heart Chakra Symbol is also used on the Animal Reiki Master Practitioner Course, this deals directly with emotions and can go deeply into a rooted emotional problem. We work with the Heart Chakra Symbol in the same ways as CKR and SHK, using Reiju Ho and intuition.

The course consists of 1 full day from 10am – 5pm. The number of students is limited to 6.
