Reiki energy is pure love, holding us in a container where we can release the things that block the Great Bright Light of our True Self, and to deeply engage a state of balance and wholeness—a state we call “healing.” Imagine growing and raising a child inside of such a state…
Empowered Childbirth with Reiki is for those who are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant, and your birthing partner(s) if they wish to participate, who seek pathways of empowerment, connection and embodiment inside of your pregnancy, birthing and parenting journey. Whether you plan a home or hospital birth, Reiki, a Japanese energy healing art, will be a trusted and powerful ally for you. You can take this class whether you are new to Reiki or already trained in it.

More About Reiki:
Reiki is a spiritual healing art with its roots in Japanese Buddhism, Shintoism and martial arts, developed in the late 1800's by Mikao Usui. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work that is incredibly sweet and gentle as it loosens and releases pain, emotional blocks and undesired energy trapped in the body. Practicing Reiki leads us to a greater understanding of what healing really is.
It is complimentary to other forms of medical or healing work, and can support physical, mental and spiritual health. Reiki encourages a person's body and spirit to release anything that no longer serves. Just as pouring cool water through a dusty pipe washes away loose dust and debris, Reiki washes through a person's system and loosens up pain, negative emotions and energy blocks, re-energizing the system towards remembering the wholeness of your true self.
The benefits of Reiki include:
Reduction in stress and pain
Reduced reliance on pain medication
Greater clarity and calm; greater self-knowledge
Deeper integration between mind, body and spirit
Particularly supportive during pregnancy, times of injury or illness, or times of transition.
