First Saturday of each month 8:30am – 1:30pm (beginning March 3)

Reiki Community Clinic with Christine DiPilla

Reiki is a Japanese healing art that translates to Universal Life Force, the creative energy source that flows through every living thing. Reiki is a spiritual practice, but it is not a religion and is not associated with religious doctrines. Through mindful touch and focused intention of the practitioner, Reiki promotes a deep level of healing on all four energy bodies — physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual — and facilitates balance and harmony. Anyone can receive Reiki as it does not conflict with conventional medical treatments. In fact, hospitals all over the country use Reiki to reduce the need for pain medication and speed up the healing process. It promotes relaxation, thereby reducing stress and its effects on our bodies.

The purpose of this donation-based clinic is to introduce Reiki and its many health-supporting benefits to people who have never experienced a Reiki session, and to make treatments available to those who would otherwise not have access to this complementary healing art. Treatments will last 30-40 minutes and consist of light touch on specific points of the client’s clothed body.

13 Moons: Manifesting with the Lunar Cycle

The moon holds powerful energy, especially for women. The dance of darkness and light, light and shadow, what is hidden and what is being revealed, movement and flow and stillness and timing are all part of her medicine.

Katherine Cartwright is our luminous, magical guide as we explore the energies of the lunar cycle through science, energy, folklore, mythology, and astrology.

🌛 We’ll learn about the energies of the lunar cycle, how to map them on a medicine wheel, and powerful archetypes that share their wisdom through each threshold moment within the cycle.

🌚 We’ll learn about the ways the Sun and Moon, and the solar and lunar cycles, work, play, and dance together.

🌛 We’ll invite moon-centered guided visualization, dreaming, storytelling, and poetry to share their magic as we call upon these powerful medicine practices to help illuminate new ways of being with an old friend.

🌝 And the ways these powerful cycles can help us to manifest in our lives.

You will receive an attunement to the energies that this particular lunar cycle hold, the Aquarius New Moon, and that planets that will show up to dance with her.

Please, bring a journal and your favorite pen.

To support you at each phase during this next lunar cycle, you’ll be gifted a bag full of self-care goodies.

Following the workshop, attendees will be invited to join a private Facebook group for ongoing lunar medicine support, encouragement, and education.

Saturday, February 17  { 10am – 4pm }

Reiki Level 1 Certification

Reiki is a non-invasive healing technique that complements and enhances other healing modalities. It facilitates healing benefits of conventional treatments and speeds up the healing process. Reiki is a tool that can be used at any moment, any time, anywhere for on-the-spot stress release, pain relief, and as a quick energy boost.

This class is for anyone who is interested in learning how to: slow down, pause, and walk through life more mindfully; expand their self-care practice; be a pillar of calm in the midst of chaos; open up to deeper levels of self-healing. While Level 1 practitioners often practice on friends and family, in this level, the focus is on you and your holistic well-being.

You will learn the history of Reiki, breathing and grounding exercises, anatomy of subtle energy bodies, energy palpation skills, and a simple hand position protocol. Ample time will be given for hands-on practice. You will leave with the knowledge and confidence to perform Reiki healing as part of your self-care routine and to help support the well-being of your family and friends.

Reiki Master/ Teacher Christine DiPilla, LMT has a lineage* with close ties to Hawayo Takata, a Japanese-American woman who brought Reiki to the United States in the 1930s. Christine’s Reiki Master/Teacher is Murielle Wesch, a graduate of Edgar Cayce Institute for Intuitive Studies and a dual Reiki Master of both Shamballa Multi-dimensional Healing and traditional Usui Shiki Ryoho. Murielle studied Usui Reiki with and received her Master initiation from Usui Reiki Master Frank DuGan.  Frank DuGan studied under Beth Gray, one of Takata’s 22 Usui Reiki Masters. Takata studied under Dr. Chuhiro Hiyashi, who is credited with developing the hand positions we use in the West and was one of the few Reiki Masters initiated by the founder of Reiki, Mikao Usui.

Lineage:
Christine DiPilla, LMT –> Murielle Wesch > Frank DuGan > Beth Gray –> Hawayo Takata –> Chuhiro Hiyashi –> Mikao Usui

*Some Reiki Masters — myself included — do not place emphasis on the lineage, but rather the depth of the instructors daily practice. However, I have been asked this question many times, so have decided to include it here.

Investment of $175 includes a comprehensive Level 1 manual; a beautiful certificate of achievement, with an embossed gold seal, for you to proudly display; discount on future classes.  On-going support is included in the training free of charge for as long as you need it through my private Facebook group. Class size is limited to 6 people. Refunds can be issued only before class is full. Once class is full, refunds will only be issued if the vacancy can be filled.

March 10 & 11 {10am-4:00pm}

Reiki Level 2 Certification

Reiki is a non-invasive healing technique that complements and enhances other healing modalities. It facilitates healing benefits of conventional treatments and speeds up the healing process. Reiki is a tool that can be used at any moment, any time, anywhere for on-the-spot stress release, pain relief and as a quick energy boost. There are three levels of Reiki. (Some teachers add a fourth level, breaking up master and teacher or adding an advanced practice level between the second and third levels.)

This class is for Reiki Level 1 Practitioners who wish to deepen their practice, expand their spiritual awareness, connect with their helping spirits, increase their intuition, and amplify their Reiki channeling abilities. You will learn three sacred Reiki symbols and how to use them to enhance your Reiki practice, providing healing on all levels — physical, emotional, mental, spiritual — as well as current and past issues. We will be practicing distance Reiki on each other and also on off-site volunteers, with their permission.
