THE ELEMENTS OF WITCHCRAFT Series w/Amy K
This path is designed to instruct, inspire and empower the student to work independently and is geared to give the student a solid foundation from which they can continue to work independently or seek the direction of group practice safely. Become a more skilled Solitary Witch and Priest/Priestess and create structured ritual for others as well. This path with Amy K consists of a series of classes beginning with the 4 Elements, Spirit and Expanding Spirit. Classes can be taken one at a time, privately, at the studentís pace while having the option at times for group participation. Most lessons include instruction, practice and meditation. Each class runs from 75 minutes to 2 hours. A certificate of completion is given after each of the three levels, with the understanding that Expanding Spirit is a lifetime cycle of pursuit and achievement. Each private lesson is $50, group classes $25, repeat classes $10.

PRACTICAL REIKI INSTRUCTION & CERTIFICATION
available by private lesson only at this time, please click the link below.
Reiki is an energy healing method for the body, mind, spirit and emotions, discovered by a Japanese Buddhist. The practitioner activates universal life force and offers it with intention, to a person whose imbalanced energies are causing them dis-easement of one or more of those areas. Many times the issues that arise are caused by stress, pain, illness or emotional blocks such as anger, frustration, anxiety etc. Reiki helps to trigger the bodyís innate abilities to heal itself and restore balance, personal energy and well-being. It is non-invasive, very relaxing and complements without interference, any healing modality.
Whatís Practical Reiki? Practical Reiki is a strong, simple way to learn Reiki healing. Itís an ďunpluggedĒ approach, which doesnít require hand positions, symbols, or complicated rituals. Instead, Practical Reiki teaches you how to work with Reiki using a two-step process. You also learn how your intuition works, and how to observe it. It is a combination of Traditional Usui Reiki and Kundalini Reiki. We begin with a focus on self-healing to become a more effective healer for others.
Learning Reiki is for EVERYONE! Regardless of your experience with intuition or energy, you CAN easily learn this powerful energy healing technique that will put healing into your own hands and change your life. Practical Reiki offers clear, down to earth explanations and analogies that most Reiki classes donít cover. Learn what energy healing is, how to feel it, and how it works. Learn many ways that you can affect your health and circumstances, and help others. Learn what attunements are and how to give them. Practical Reiki is a resource about energy healing and also the manual for the Practical Reiki method.
You can practice Reiki for yourself, for others, open a professional practice, or even teach Reiki! Go as far as your heart takes you! The Reiki Awakening Academy offers full support for your Reiki practice, personally and professionally.
