MASTERING YOUR KNOWING
Are you an intuitive? An empath? What has been your usual way of "KNOWING" when you work with others? Do you know the extent of your abilities and how to work with them? Do you want to explore and perhaps expand your intuitive/empathic abilities?
If you said yes, COME EXPLORE with me. I offer one-on-one, private classes that focus on your specific way of intuitive working and beyond. Together we will travel inward, to discover "what you know" and "how you know it." We'll talk about the different ways intuitive/empathic healers work and how to expand your intuitive horizons, explore other intuitive gifts you may have, and bring those forth if you desire.
Some things we'll touch on include:
- Understanding and trusting what you are "seeing/feeling/hearing/knowing"
- Traveling in the body
- Techniques to communicate with the body/mind/spirit to release stagnant energy from "old beliefs", trauma, etc.
- Your questions answered!
Each private class is 90 minutes long, it is done via ZOOM or conference line, and you receive the recording to refer back to.
$60 per 90-minute session. Discounts given for multiple classes paid in advance. Email Myrrh to discuss your needs: email@example.com
Usui Reiki Workshops
ABOUT USUI REIKI ~ WHY AND HOW WE TEACH IT
THE ROOTS OF REIKI
We offer readers and potential students the traditional history and roots of Reiki here to offer the context of why we teach it as a core part of the Energy Training that we offer.
Reiki is a spiritually-based system of working with energy whose roots are well over 2,500 years old and embody the original traditional teachings of early Theravada and Mahayana Buddhism. It is the oldest known form of Reiki and the source of all other systems of Reiki, migrating from Tibet and India to Southeast Asia and China, then to Japan via Buddhist lamas and adepts.
Usui references the specific lineage of this form of Reiki, named for founder Dr. Mikao Usui, a Buddhist and Doctor of Theology who rediscovered this system from texts originating from Gautama Buddha, and began sharing it with his students as a complementary therapy to treat physical, emotional, and mental diseases. Sources report that Dr. Usui taught Reiki to over 2000 people during his lifetime, sixteen of whom continued their training to reach the equivalent to our Western third degree, or Master level.
Mrs. Hawayo Hiromi Takata, a Japanese-American born in Hawaii, helped introduce Reiki to the US. bringing it to Hawaii, where she taught until her death in 1980. It's not known how many students she taught, however, within the tradition, she is sometimes known as Reiki Grand Master Teacher Hawayo Takata. The American Reiki Association, Inc. was formed by Mrs. Takata in the final year of her life, 1980, together with Dr. Barbara Weber Ray, one of her students.
Dr. Usui's original Reiki manuscript, found in 1994, cited the origins to be from Gautama Buddha and the Buddhist text, Tantra of the Lightning Flash. References have been made its origins being the way of healing practiced by Jesus. It is assumed, however, that Mrs. Takata created this reference to make Reiki more palatable and acceptable in the US.
INCREASED AWARENESS OF LIFE-ENHANCING ENERGY
We are naturally connected to Life-enhancing energy - the Universal Life Force - the energy from which everything flows and is part of. In our modern world, our perception of this connection can become weaker as the busy-ness of our external world takes precedence as "reality." Reiki, which means Universal Life Force Energy in Japanese, is an amazing method/practice to learn to reconnect on a deeper level to the Love that is the source of all life, to navigate more gracefully the creativity and purpose of our life. Rather than being just for "hands on healing," this practice deepens our awareness of the animating part of everything in our world that is always available for our well-being, the "inner well" from which our creativity flows and in the many ways that shows up for us.
We include Usui Reiki as a core offering because of its ancient, undiluted teachings as well as the rigorous attention to keeping intact the purity of this lineage's teaching and information.
Connection to the spirit of life is one of life's many gifts for all of us. The deeper the connection, the easier life flows, enhancing everything positive that we already do for ourselves. For that reason, Reiki is shared from the perspectives of an artist, musician, writer and "healer" offering this class for all individuals, especially creatives. Everything is naturally connected to the Creative Life Force and so we share from a place of no boundaries or labels of any offering being "spiritual" or otherwise.
I hope you will join us in becoming part of this beautiful practice and lineage.
TRADITIONAL USUI REIKI COMPLETE WORKSHOP WEEKEND IMMERSION
FRIDAY, SATURDAY, SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 10 - SEPTEMBER 12, 2021
WOMEN and MEN
NOTE: This is an in-person LIVE WORKSHOP in my home. I do not mandate masks in my home or for this workshop. Please feel free to wear one for your own comfort.
All of Life flows from 'Ki,' energy, the Divine Creative Animating force of the Universe - God, Goddess, Allah, Jehovah, that creates and animates us and all living things. Its names are many. This 'Ki' is the same 'Ki" in the name "Reiki" which means Universal Life Force Energy.
Beginning September, 2021, I will be offering traditional Usui Reiki Training in a new format - all levels will be taught in one weekend. I taught this way for a number of years, following the lead of Diane Stein, who wrote what I consider to be the "bible" of the original Traditional Usui Reik lineagei: "Essential Reiki - A Complete Guide To An Ancient Healing Art." This way of teaching equips students with EVERYTHING they need to be a Master/Teacher and enables them to process the teachings, and step into the role of Teacher, in their own time.
Here's how it will work:
- All three levels will be taught for one flat fee of $500. For September, 2021, this weekend is offered for $450. As we continue to move back into "normalcy" I want to help equip individuals who want to step into full power to assist Earth and people in their healing.
- This workshop is an entire weekend and students will take ALL THREE LEVELS over the course of the weekend: Level I: Friday afternoon-evening; Level II: all day Saturday; and Level III Master/Teacher: all day Sunday. Students will not be able to "make up" Level II or Level III at a different time if they decide it's too much. Checking in and committing to the entire weekend is very important, prevents disruption of the group, and other issues. If you are unsure if this format will work for you, it's best to find a teacher who teaches in the manner that you need.
- Students who are already attuned to Level I or Level II should find another teacher to complete their remaining classes. Alternately, students are welcome to pay the weekend fee, retake the levels they've had and finish their training and attunements from me.
- Some students may feel that taking all workshops in one weekend will be an energy overload. Understand that students do not open to the attunement energies of all degrees at once. It is a gradual integration and expansion of awareness that takes over six months to a year to assimilate. Each student's consciousness manages this process and the energetics of the attunements are absorbed as each student is ready to receive them. The gift in teaching this way is that when the individual is ready to serve as a Master/Teacher and begin to teach, they already have the knowledge and energetic "tools" they need to do so. Please check in with yourself before committing to this workshop weekend before committing.
With the mass awakening occurring on Mother Earth, the need for trained healers and Earth Stewards is critical to help individuals make sense of and navigate the increasing upheaval on Earth. Teaching in this manner helps to ready individuals when they feel called to be of service.
The first Usui Reiki Weekend Workshop will take place September 10-12, 2021. Weekends workshops will be repeated every 3-4 months. A minimum of two students are needed to hold the class.
DETAILS AND TUITION:
There is room in this workshop weekend for 4 individuals. Your tuition includes the manual, "Essential Reiki: A Complete Guide To An Ancient Healing Art," by Diane Stein. This manual goes deeply into Usui Reiki and is invaluable to those who wish to learn the basics as well as go further to higher levels in their study and for teaching.
TUITION FOR SEPT 10-12 ONLY: $440 in advance.
You may pay by credit card, personal check or cash. Credit card payments are charged a $3.50 transaction fee. To pay by cash or check, if you cannot pay the full amount in advance, or if you are experiencing financial hardship, or have any other questions about the workshop weekend, please contact Myrrh directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
REFUNDS: Refunds are handled on a case by case basis. There are generally no refunds on tuition unless the class is canceled or rescheduled. If you are unable to attend from the start of the workshop weekend, your tuition payment is applied to the next Usui Reiki Workshop Weekend that you can attend.

Descriptions of Each Level of Usui Reiki
The Level I Reiki Introductory Workshop and attunement will be on Friday afternoon/evening. This workshop introduces you to Reiki. It teaches you how to consciously connect to, strengthen and work with this flow of Life Force in all areas of your life through the practice of Usui Reiki. This Traditional Usui Reiki weekend is the most ancient form of Reiki over 2500 yrs old, some claim it to be the original form of energy healing. It has been passed down through a lineage originated in sacred texts written by the Buddha. (See first few paragraphs on this page for history).
A significant part of this class is the energetic attunement, which opens and strengthens all of your energy channels to a deeper awareness, clears and aligns your chakras, and thus enhances your own health, well-being, intuition, personal energy and inner guidance. This beginning Level I workshop has an energetic focus on self-healing, specifically healing the physical body, and can help you more easily manage stress, ease depression and pain, and help heal physical issues.
No previous experience, special knowledge or abilities are needed to learn this. Some of you might "remember" this practice on a cellular level. We will spend a lot of time working with this energy and how it can be used in many different life perspectives. This class includes the Level I energetic attunement, the traditional Reiki lore and teachings, learning the basic hand positions used for self healing, heightened awareness of energy in the body, practice time, study of the chakras, auric fields, and a beautiful Reiki Certificate suitable for framing.
My Reiki Journey: I have gratefully studied Usui Reiki and served as a Master/Teacher since Jan, 2002. The study of Usui Reiki was and continues to be my magnificent opening and continuation into alternative healing and medicine, and deeper spirituality. I have had so many incredible openings and healings since I began journey. And the study of Usui Reiki is an ongoing, life-long journey. One thing I learned is that the more we let this energy "become" us, the deeper we go into the creative healing space and abilities of Source within us. When it "becomes" us, we embody healing energy for ourselves, others and Earth, just through who we are, just through intention. It becomes effortless. While I am studied and certified in many other healing modalities and practices, Usui Reiki remains my cornerstone and the most authentic energy healing modality I teach for individuals to begin their own energy healing journey and practice. I have taught Usui Reiki since 2003 and I will continue to teach it for the rest of my days.
Felted Healing Crystal Energy Balls - An Intuitive Art Class
This VERY FUN class will be offered through Local Cloth in Asheville in Fall 2021
Do you know someone needing prayers or good intentions who would love a physical healing representation filled with your love and energy? Or maybe you would like a new meditation tool?
This super fun and energy immersive class introduces you to the easy and wonderfully sensory art of felting, which uses wool fibers called roving, hot water, olive oil soap and friction or rubbing, to compact fibers into a shape, in this case a ball. And if you are new to energy healing, it also teaches you how to work with energy intentionally by "sending" it into your creation and imbuing your balls with it. Each ball will be felted around a powerful seed crystal point that has been cleared, energized and is ready for your specific intention/prayer and energy. We will start with the basics of felting, then enter into a meditation to put us all "in the mood" and then we will felt away.
You will have a choice of wool colors to use for your creations. You will also receive two organza gift bags for gifting your felted balls, plus extra wool and extra crystals so you can create a couple of felted balls at home.
All supplies, snacks and tea provided. Six spots available in this class.
