Anyone who has ever taken pleasure in the companionship of an animal will know the benefits it brings, but the medical establishment, and people in general, are beginning to recognise and appreciate the healing impact these animals have on human beings. We are all aware of the wonderful help animals can give when they work with us to guide, protect or rescue, but studies have shown the healing effects both psychological and physical that come from the simple act of stroking a pet. Today an increasing number of care homes, nursing homes and hospitals arrange regular access to animals to foster the healing energies around the sick or elderly.

Of course, the care and affection is two-way: our natural inclinations to love our animal companions and to heal and comfort them then they are sick of disturbed.

To these ends, Spiritual Sojourn offers a range of animal healing courses concentrating on either the therapeutic values of animals in healing situations, or the care and treatment of animals who need our holistic help to heal.

Students who successfully complete The Animal Reiki Healing course are entitled to use the appropriate designatory letters after their name.

About Animal Reiki

Animal Reiki is an ancient healing art. Many believe it to be the strongest form of energy healing that that has ever existed. It is said to have come from ancient Tibet but has been touched by almost every culture and is known in many names and forms. It was re-introduced to the modern world by Dr. Mikao Usui and has spread quickly by word of mouth, and touch, to many people. Reiki (pronounced “ray-key”) is a laying-on of hands healing technique. The word Reiki is derived from two Japanese words – “rei,” meaning “Universal Spirit,” and “ki.” Meaning “life force energy.” The word Reiki, therefore, refers to a balanced life force energy. A Usui Reiki Practitioner is someone who has been carefully trained in this ancient art and has prepared many years emotionally, physically and mentally to practice it.

There are three levels of Animal Reiki Training, (Levels 1,2,3), each with distinct levels of healing enhancement. A Reiki Master is someone who can teach this training to people who care to care, or to professionals in the healing and medical arts. They are given this Master title after many years of professional practice. Reiki is transferred to students by Reiki Master Teachers through a series of attunements. During an attunement process, a series of symbols are sealed into the person’s energy field. The attunement process opens up an individual permanently to the Reiki energy so that one can give Reiki treatments to self and others. Reiki has been traditionally taught in three degrees or levels and there is a specific attunement for each degree of training. A Reiki Practitioner is an energy channel for directing energy to where healing is needed. The recipient is the actual healer. Many experience Reiki as profound relaxation similar to the effects of massage. You receive Reiki fully clothed on a massage table in a series of hand placements above and on your body that bring the needed energetic input. Animals receive this direct to their body or can receive Reiki in long distance session.. Past traumas can be treated at the actual time of the trauma. Long lasting difficulties can be treated at the point of origin. All forms of discomfort can be treated with Reiki. Reiki is not a substitute for regular medical care, but often enhances and guides recovery to where it is needed. Reiki looks to the balance of mental, spiritual and physical aspects of disease. It is gentle and non-invasive and good practitioners follow the code of Reiki ethics. Reiki is an energy channeling process and has no affiliation with any faith or religious community. It exists to assist people in healing disease.
