Is Animal Reiki Safe for Practitioners?

One Reiki Students Experience

In talking to people about Energy Healing and what it takes to learn Reiki I often hear that people believe it takes years to develop the ability. And while years of practice at anything does improve your skills, even a beginning student can, and often will, have a profound moment when they feel the energy […] Read more »

Healing With Valora

In my work with horse rescues I see many cases of severe abuse and neglect. Stories that leave one wondering how anyone could think it right to treat any living thing the way they do. This week I had the opportunity to work with a beautiful, resilient mare named Valora. Her story is now a […] Read more »

The Lesson of One

Last week at the Animal Reiki Share I host at Dreamchaser Horse Rescue we had a unique experience. Something we had not experienced before.
