(LCR) Healing with Reiki with Stephanie Drotter, Laura Livingston, Sharon Neilon
Jul 18 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

** Registration: Limited to 12 attendees per clinic.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki is administered by “laying on hands” and on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.

We will begin the workshop with gaining a better understanding of the practice of Reiki. Afterward, each participant will receive a treatment while lying on a massage table (or seated) with clothes on.

The clinic is led by Stephanie Drotter-Seidell, a Reiki Master practicing in Oakland and Lafayette and by Reiki Master Laura Livingston and Reiki Practitioner Sharon Neilon.
