Reiki is a key that opens the door to your heart and helps you heal your life. Reiki is a journey to the heart and beyond, a gateway to the healing of suffering and pain, a path of deep joy and inner peace. Reiki is a gift that allows us to connect more deeply with who we are and to share this intimate part of ourselves with others in a loving way.”

– Margot “Deepa” Slater

What is a Reiki treatment like?

The recipient lies comfortably (they may stand or sit if needed) remaining fully clothed. The Reiki Practitioner gently places or “floats” their hands on specific energy centers of the body. If the client has a pain or dis-ease in a place other than the energy centers the practitioner will concentrate there as well. What one experiences during a Reiki treatment varies, however a feeling of deep relaxation is felt by most. Some experience a glowing radiance flowing through and surrounding them. Some drift off to sleep or experience a floating sensation.

We all get exactly what we need as Reiki is an intelligent energy “honing” in on where it is most needed. After the treatment, one generally feels balanced, peaceful and refreshed.

Can I learn Reiki?

Barbara Smith teaches both group and private Reiki classes for adults and/or children.

Reiki is transferred from a Reiki Master to a student through an attunement process, which uses sacred symbols, mantras, and breath. There are 3 levels of Reiki. In level 1 you are attuned to the Reiki energy and learn hand positions so you can Reiki yourself and others. Levels 2 & 3 enable you to intensify the flow of energy so you have access to more Universal Life Energy enabling you to transmit Reiki over distance, space, and time.
