Shamanic Reiki Level 1 - with Brooke Gillespie and Leona Walker

  • Golden Drum 97 Green Street Apt G1 Brooklyn, NY, 11222 United States (map)

In this workshop you will have an introduction into shamanic healing and Reiki, the nature of the light body, the 7 main chakras, and how to connect with the universal life energy that allows healing to happen.

Shamanic Reiki is a practice that combines the wisdom of the shamanic traditions with the techniques of Reiki healing. It is beautiful way to awaken and develop your healing abilities. We will learn how to connect to this source of universal healing energy in order to awaken our own inner healer. We will go through four attunements as well as teachings and corresponding hands-on exercises during the workshop. Shamanic Reiki will focus on building our relationship with energy and how healing works within a shamanic framework.

In Reiki Level I you will learn:

  • The history & the 5 principles of Reiki
  • An introduction to the Chakra systems and Energy Centers
  • How to treat yourself with Reiki Hand placements for Self-Treatment
  • How to identify and remove energy blocks
  • How to give Reiki to others: human, animal, plant, mineral

We couldn't define Reiki any better than the folks at Here's what they have to say:

"When seeking a definition from a more spiritual context, we find that Rei can be defined as the Higher Intelligence that guides the creation and functioning of the universe. Rei is a subtle wisdom that permeates everything, both animate and inanimate. This subtle wisdom guides the evolution of all creation ranging from the unfolding of galaxies to the development of life. On a human level, it is available to help us in times of need and to act as a source of guidance in our lives. Because of its infinite nature, it is all knowing. Rei is also called God and has many other names depending on the culture that has named it.

Ki is the non-physical energy that animates all living things. Ki is flowing in everything that is alive including plants, animals and humans. When a person's Ki is high, they will feel strong, confident, and ready to enjoy life and take on it's challenges. When it is low, they will feel weak and are more likely to get sick. We receive Ki from the air we breath, from food, sunshine, and from sleep. It is also possible to increase our Ki by using breathing exercises and meditation. When a person dies, their Ki leaves the physical body. Ki is also the Chi of China, the prana of India, the Ti or Ki of the Hawaiians, and has also been called odic force, orgone, bioplasma and life force.”
