Mindfulness for Rest

Mindfulness to Clean up Our Spaces

Mindfulness for Eating and Health

Mindfulness for Relationships

Reiki is an amazing energy therapy that offers powerful rest and healing, so that we are more likely to move through the world connected and Mindful.  It is challenging to put into words the power of this ancient mind-body-spirit practice, but read on . . . 

Simply stated, Reiki is an old and transformative method of hands on (and/or hands hovering) rest and healing for the body, mind and spirit. As far as we know, it was developed in Japan during the early 1900s by a doctor who understood that your body, mind and spirit are all vital entities of your total being. 

Body     Mind    Spirit

 

Loosely translated, Reiki means “universal life force energy.” This energy, possessed by all of us, is transferred through the practitioner’s hands, and other energy fields, to the client, and often even back and forth between us. In addition, a Reiki practitioner has your best interest in mind, body and spirit when working with you and is transferring healing intentions to you at all times. Your practitioner may even silently speak purposeful and nurturing words during your session, improving the already well-meaning flow of energy. 

 

During a Reiki session, you will experience hands on your body or hovering above your body, and these placements will mostly align with each of your seven chakras. The chakras are believed to hold different forms of your life force energy. The Reiki touch is meant to help this energy flow in healthy ways throughout your body so that you can experience more of the peace and joY your life is meant to be.  

 

With a skilled practitioner, Reiki will, at the very least, bring you an intense level of relaxation that leads to a more calm body, mind and spirit. This relaxation can lead to tremendous physical benefits (limited list below) and can leave us more open to joYful experiences. At most, Reiki (and particularly regular treatments, monthly) can create lasting physical, mental, emotional and spiritual relief that can lead to noticeably improved well-being and quality of life. Reiki can allow you to test the beliefs and habits that might be restricting our success, connectedness, vitality, resilience, enjoYment and more, so that we can improve circumstances in our lives. Furthermore, Reiki can release trauma held in the body and mind and open the heart and soul to more joY . . . for yourself and others.

Reiki sessions take place in a climate controlled area where recipients are fully clothed and lying on a treatment table or comfortable floor space. A blanket(s) is applied to your body in an effort toward nurturing, and a scented eye pillow is used for drawing you inward during the session. You can expect soothing music throughout and various forms of aromatherapy.

 

Reiki Healing Format: 

Approximately 60 minutes (never less, sometimes more)

*about 10 minutes:     Discussion between practitioner and client to assess client needs

*about  5 minutes:      Guided, Seated Meditation with Healing Gemstones

*about 35 minutes:     Reiki Healing Session with Eye Pillow, Blanket, Aromatherapy and Music

*about   2 minutes:     Client left alone to transition privately out of Reiki session

*about 10 minutes:     Sacred conversation 

 

Following your Reiki healing session, drink plenty of water and try to provide time to care for yourself.  You may feel the need to rest or you may feel full of energy. As best you can, allow some attention to whatever you need. This will enhance the benefits of your session.

 

When should you plan a Reiki Healing Session?

When you are ill or injured

When you are anxious

When you are depressed

When you are tired/exhausted

When you feel grief

When you are confused or trying to make a difficult decision

When you are angry or frustrated over things that seem out of your control

When you are emotionally hurt or feeling unstable

When you need to let go of that which does not serve your well being

joY Meditation

$60/hour

one-three guests

$5/hour each additional guest

Meditation is an ancient mental and spiritual practice that invites us to find a kind of quiet and stillness we cannot often find in the pace of our days.  It allows us space to more easily notice our thoughts and feelings and breathe with them, but not get carried away by them. Meditation provides the pause that is needed to perhaps find more intention and more meaning in this life. 

 

Meditation is to Mindfulness what lifting weights is to muscle strength.  One does not strength train to get better at strength training. Likewise, one does not meditate to get better at meditating.  We build muscle to help us lift heavy things in our every day lives. We meditate to help us be more Mindful in our every day lives.  Meditation provides the pause we need to breathe and pay true attention to the present moment. It brings us to a kind of noticing of our minds and bodies that perhaps we cannot get any other way. Largely, it is a practice in stillness, quiet and awareness. It sounds easy, but it can be quite challenging. It also sounds like something we don't need in a culture that glorifies a fast-paced, achievement-oriented, highly-scheduled, consumer-driven lifestyle. Could it be though, that this is not the truth of who we are and that Meditation can offer us more truth?

Yoga is known best perhaps for it's physical components. However, in it's truest intention, Yoga is a mental and spiritual practice that uses asanas (poses) and flowing movements to give your mind and soul places within the body to focus in an attempt to bring you overall wellness. Does this sound complicated?  It's not!

joYn us to find that as you move your body on the mat, your thoughts and feelings will move with you and everything will become more connected. Practicing joY Yoga offers you not only the physical, mental or spiritual benefits of the practice, but all three, EVERY single time.  What's more, you don't have to consider yourself physically fit to joYn us. Whatever your physical abilities, we can adjust our practice to fit every need and honor each unique body and experience. Regardless of what you can do physically, you will leave with improved body confidence and overall awareness of your needs and your strengths. You will also leave feeling valued, connected, inspired, nurtured, challenged, empowered . . . 

We actually encourage you to practice Yoga elsewhere so that you can experience the difference with joY.
