Learn and Experience Reiki - What Is Reiki? Workshop and Reiki Share

  • Mellow Massage and Yoga 4023 Ridge Avenue Philadelphia, PA, 19129 United States (map)



If you have ever practiced Yoga, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Meditated, or had a Massage you may have experienced the flow of Energy (also called Ki, Qi or Prana). Maybe you've read about energy but would like an opportunity to explore it with experienced teachers. Maybe you're just curious ...

Reiki is a healing technique that works with energy. Energy (or ki ) enlivens us, animates our organs, floods our cells and tissues, and helps create equilibrium in the body. When Ki is blocked or interrupted and not flowing through the body efficiently, the tissues and organs are interrupted and we may become ill. When Ki flows effortlessly and is able to circulate through our entire body without interference, we feel better and are much more healthy. Learn about this process by attending “What Is Reiki”

Join Sarah Gawricki and Carrie Pierce for an informative, easy to understand Reiki workshop followed by a Reiki share! “What Is Reiki” is a relaxed and safe workshop that will teach you the basic principles of this Japanese healing technique. Reiki honors ALL lifestyles and spiritual traditions and requires no philosophical affiliation. All are safe and welcome. 

This workshop is for you if ...
