In this class you will learn about the 7 main chakras that go up the spine Also how they physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually are intertwined and effect your life. There will be a short meditation going into each of the 7 chakras giving you the opportunity to feel your own unique energy in each. 
 
Week 3: Experiencing Auras - What is an aura? Why are they important? Come learn these answers and much more. In class you will experience seeing and feeling auras through various exercises. Feel where one stops and another begins as well as how an aura changes with emotion and intention.

Week 5: Psychic Development - Learn and practice how to tap into your spiritual gifts and awaken your inner knowing through psychic exercises and techniques that help you become more aware of and hone your intuition. This class is hands-on and will involve reading the energy of an object and using intuition in one-on-one discussions with classmates. Please bring a personal object for the exercise.
 
Week 6: Basics of Energy Healing - Learn the origins of many different modalities to discover exactly what kind of healing assists you best on your path. You will also learn the principles and basics of Reiki. In this class you will get the chance to feel the sensation of energy, how it moves, and how your soul responds to it.
 
Week 7: Reiki and Energy Healing - In this class the differences in energy healing modalities will be discussed, as well as hand placement. This is the most hands-on class in the course (besides the recap week) to really start actively participating in your own and others' healing. 
 
Week 8: Recap and Experiential - This class provides a unique experience to practice any and all techniques and modalities learned during the course. It provides the opportunity to ask questions and receive clarification on anything taught in the previous 7 weeks. This helps to solidify the techniques in the mind and soul, giving you the ability to call on these skills whenever you desire. 
 
Unlike other Reiki or energy healing classes, this course gives the unique opportunity to learn several modalities and techniques at once, truly customizing your healing to what your soul requires.
