I have always loved the Lunar/Chinese New Year, because the very beginnings of spring are starting to be felt. There is likely to be more snow, and definitely more cold, but the days are growing longer. Anticipation is in the air! It’s an excellent time to revisit–and possibly revise–any New Year’s resolutions. It has been a few weeks: what on your list do you definitely want to lean into? Or perhaps January was a total mess; here’s your chance to start again. What do you want to grow more of?

In 2019, Orange Flower Healing will be revisiting events from past years, and will also be serving up entirely new offerings. Read on to learn more, and check the Classes & Events page for regular updates. You can also contact me get on the email list, and have Orange Flower news sent straight to your inbox!

Wednesday, February 13: I will be offering short chair Reiki sessions from 5-7pm at Lucky’s Market in Bloomington, as part of their Valentine’s Day festivities. What better time to enjoy a few minutes of Reiki for your tender-lovin’ heart? Look for me near the floral department, where you can sign up for my email list and be entered in a drawing for a free Reiki session.

Saturday, March 23: Orange Flower Healing will be hosting a free Reiki Clinic, from 9am-3pm. Contact me to schedule a free 30 minute appointment, and grab this
opportunity to try a short Reiki session and share questions with an experienced practitioner. I wrote about free clinics back in the fall, and am looking at offering these seasonally. First session available at 9am, last session at 3pm.

Monday, April 22: Earth Day meditation. More info soon.

Wednesday, May 8: 50+ Expo – Changing the Way We Age, 3-6pm. You will find me at the Olcott Center’s table–please swing by and say hello.

I am pleased to share the news that I will begin offering Reiki classes in 2019.

After two years in a traditional, rigorous apprenticeship with a Reiki Master of 30+ years, (my dear teacher and Reiki Master, Shantika Bernard), I will be initiated as a master in the lineage of Usui Shiki Ryoho in March. For me, this signifies a deepening commitment to the practice of Reiki, and to sharing the practice with others.

What can you expect from a Reiki class with Orange Flower Healing?
-Small class sizes, with approximately 4-8 people.
-10-12 hours of instruction, spaced over 3-4 days.
-Individual initiations.
-Reiki I and Reiki II will always be taught separately, with 6-12 months strongly encouraged between Reiki I and Reiki II.
-Ongoing mentoring, with opportunities for practice with other students and the public.

Interested in a class? Have questions? Please, contact me.
