9:30 am to 4:30 pm
This full-day workshop will give you the opportunity to meet and interact with the multiple species who share their lives together on a farm near Arthur. Find out how these individuals found their way to this Healing Farm, the stories they embrace and those they have released.
You will have the opportunity to listen, learn and share Reiki with these animals who have chosen to partner with us on this day. A strong emphasis will be placed on observation of behaviour, listening with your heart, and being respectful in all our interactions. Come with a spirit of openness – be prepared to accept the gifts of healing and insight you may be given throughout the day.
The day will begin with familiarizing you to the Gilbert Farm, basic handling and welfare concerns of the animals, as well as introducing you to the various characters who call this place home. The Gilberts embrace Veganism, reflecting their commitment that all who live here are loved and respected, and not to be exploited. We invite you to honour this principle while a guest to their farm.
The workshop includes opportunities to observe a couple Reiki demonstrations, as well as practise Reiki with animal partners. Mentoring will be available for those who choose it. There will also be ample time for reflection, both individually and collectively.
All Reiki students are eligible to attend – a few observation-only spots will be available for those who want to attend but choose not to have hands-on participation. All workshop participants will be given an Animal Reiki participation certificate.

“Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love.” ~ Fyodor Dostoyevsky
