Will I be an Animal Reiki practitioner after this class?
Yes, you will be trained and attuned to Animal Reiki energy. You will learn practitioner skills and given instructions on how to do a full Animal Reiki Session.
Do I have to be Holy Fire® to take this class?
No, this class is open to all lineages. Although the energy is brought through Usui/Holy Fire® III, it will empower your own Reiki lineage.
Will this replace my own Reiki symbols?
No, you will be able to continue to use your own Reiki symbols after the class and offer Animals Reiki through your own style of Reiki.
Am I being attuned to a new energy?
Yes Usui/Holy Fire® III Animal Reiki is its own energy system. You will receive a level 1 & 2 placement style of attunement in the workshop.
Where is the class located?
The class is located online via Zoom.
Do I get to work with Animals?
Yes, we pair students up in the class who have animals and those that don’t so everyone gets to practice a real-time session.
What are the prerequisites?
You must have Reiki level 1 & 2.
Can I take this course if I am not Reiki trained?
No, you need to have the level of human Reiki to take Animal Reiki. For example, you have to take Reiki 1 & 2 to take Animal Reiki 1 & 2 and you have to have Reiki Master to take Animal Reiki Master.
How is this class different?
It’s hard to explain completely why this class is different in the same way that it is hard to explain how a regular Reiki class is different. But I can say what this class is: It is in-depth in tools and techniques for giving Animal Reiki sessions as well as in energy. We spend time in attunements, experiences, invocations, and meditations. We train in the three priorities of Animal Reiki, (safety, consent, and observation) session techniques, distance Reiki techniques, and much more.
I have been doing Reiki on Animals for years, do I have to take this class to do it “right?”
Absolutely not. This class is for those who feel called to take it. There are many amazing and beautiful existing Animal Reiki practices out there and we believe there is no one right way, it is what your heart is called to! More Reiki for the animals that need and want it is always the right thing!
Why is there a placement style of attunement?
To be honest we were just as surprised about this. None of us expected this, however, we spent days in the energy in a Reiki journey state. We spent time with the Divine Animal Kingdom listening to what THEY wanted this course to be. They designed it as much as we did. They showed all of us separately that this was a different frequency of energy and there was to be an attunement to it.
Who are the authors?
Colleen Benelli, Sioux Strong, Pamela Allen-LeBlanc, Robyn Benelli. We all have years of Reiki and animal expertise.
Does this energy heal us? Is that because we are animals also?
That’s actually exactly it! It is even a part of the attunement. We are the humans in the circle of the Animal Kingdom and the animals help us to remember this. This class works with the Divine Animal Kingdom and is as much about them healing us, as us healing them. It is a true exchange. As we know as animal lovers on this physical plane our beloved pets and animals can heal us in tremendous ways and sometimes even save our lives (not only physically, but emotionally) and we heal them and save their lives. In addition to using physical Reiki for this, this class also explores these concepts energetically and spiritually.
Is there a Master Class?
There will be a Master Class. We are currently busy listening and writing the manual and our heart intention is that this spreads to many animals and people, and we want others to teach it who are called to it. Many will also want to take the master class purely to enrich their personal Animal Reiki practice and not to teach, which is also amazing. We hope to teach the first Master Class in 2021.
