Animal Reiki Classes "Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened" Anatole France
"The Let the Animals Lead" method founded, by Kathleen Prasad, is a groundbreaking approach to energy work by honoring animal agency, wisdom, independence and by giving animals a choice of how (and if) they want to participate in an energy healing Animal Reiki session. This method is a gentle path to help humans and animals live together with more balance, peace and happiness. The Let the Animals Lead Method was created for all animals but was born from the realization that animals may not necessarily want to be touched and often humans impose their own will on the animal. This method is especially effective with animals who are in shelters and/or have suffered with trauma and is equally effective with animals in the home or other circumstances. This method was created using the original Usui System of Reiki and teaches the student a meditative approach to self discovery within in order to connect with animals. Let Animals Lead method is a non-invasive approach as practitioners only touch the animal if the animal seeks touch. The practitioner is taught how to remain grounded and hold space with animals. Every human's path to balance and wholeness is unique and the same is to be said about animals. Their path to balance and wholeness is entirely unique and this method honors animals as our healers and our teachers.
