Reiki Workshops

reiki classes boulder

One of my favorite sayings is “As the atom so is the Universe, As the microcosm so is the Macrocosm, As the human body so is the Cosmic Body, As the human mind so is the Cosmic Mind.” This ancient saying loosely translated from Sanskrit text is the foundation for what Reiki is.

Mystics and Scientists are investigating the subtle energies of the Universe. These engeries are multidimensional, and multifaceted. They are beyond our ability to define. It is becoming obvious to many people in our modern society that thoughts, intentions and prayers have a great deal of power.

Reiki I classes consist of 4 attunements (this is what makes people able to reiki). The goal is to start the process of balancing one’s energy and being physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually aligned. This reiki is from the Traditional Reiki Alliance. People will be paired up to not only receive reiki but also to give reiki throughout the class. Wear comfortable clothes and come ready to heal and relax at a deep level.

Level I and Level II workshops on Reiki are available regularly.  Level I workshops are $150 and Level II workshops are $250. Pay using PayPal button below.

Patricia also trains Reiki Masters. Cost and timelines can be discussed on an individual basis.

2023 Dates:
January 21: Reiki I, 10 am – 4 pm (lunch included), $150
February 18: Reiki I, 10 am – 4 pm (lunch included), $150

January 21: Reiki II, 12 – 4 pm, plus one-hour session before course required, $250
