Lenn Park • 19206 Edwin Way CulpeperVA  22701 Organized by Culpeper County Parks and Recreation Department

About this event

Description

So we’ve all heard about the “new” practice called Reiki (ray-key). Do you know what it is? Did you know that it is not new! Come join Level III Reiki Master, Kim Toone owner of Divine Shine Reiki, LLC., to discover exactly what Reiki is and how it can benefit you.
What is Reiki?... it is an ancient Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation. When you can reduce stress and are more relaxed it promotes health and healing. This is one of the reasons why more hospitals, cancer clinics and pain management clinics in the United States are incorporating Reiki as a complimentary modality in their healing of patients. ( “Reiki in Clinical Practice” by Ann Linda Baldwin, PhD, Massage Magazine, 2021 )
Reiki has been practiced for thousands of years and anyone can learn it. There are multiple levels of Reiki learning, practice and usage. This workshop will focus on how you can use Reiki to benefit yourself. Kim will discuss the lifestyle benefits that simple everyday Reiki provides. I.e., the importance of balance in one’s life, of being “mindful” and on the philosophy and the benefits in practicing the five Reiki Ideals: - Just for today, I will not get angry, - Just for today, I will be happy, - Just for today, I will be grateful, - Just for today, I will work diligently in my work, and - Just for today, I will be kind to other and to myself.
Reiki is not a religion in the same way that Acupuncture is not a religion. Acupuncture also is a form of energy healing that comes from Tradition Asian Medicine. You can have any religious affiliation or not at all and still benefit from Reiki in the same way as with Tai Chi or Yoga or any other energy healing modality with health benefits.

Bring your own yoga mat, towel, or something comfortable to sit / lie on. We will be sitting on the floor for discussion and practice.
