Gift yourself the opportunity to learn the restorative healing energy work - the Art of Reiki.
Reiki is renowned for deep relaxation, stress relief and natural healing. It is a simple and powerful "laying on hands" energy balancing technique which is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to become sick and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Feelings of tranquillity and peace are often experienced after giving/receiving Reiki sessions along with a renewed capacity to cope with the pressures of our busy daily lives.
This course is taught according to the tradition of Dr Mikao Usui Sensei. The Training may be taken as a 1-5 day course, culminating in Grand master Certification. You will receive a Reiki manual for each level and a certificate.
Punnu Singh Wasu is a certified Grand Master in Reiki and has over 24 years of experience. He studied different traditions of Reiki with Grand Master, Kandy Beth Brandt in Russia and with Dr. Kanta Nagpal in India over several years. He offers Reiki sessions on a daily basis and private/group trainings on a regular basis around the world.
