Advanced Reiki Training & Reiki Master Training
Heidi Morrison - Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® Master/Teacher with the International Center for Reiki Training. This is the newly updated Usui Advanced Reiki Training (ART) and Holy Fire II Reiki Master training from the International Center of Reiki Training.  You will learn ways to use Reiki for your own personal & spiritual growth as well as how to develop a Reiki practice. Over half the class time is used for hands-on practice so that you will become confident in administering Reiki sessions.  You will also learn how to give Reiki placements and ignitions (attunements).  While the content of the class will allow you to pass the ability to do Reiki on to others and to teach if you choose, many take the class for their own use or to use with family and friends. To qualify to take this class you must have taken Reiki I & II and practiced Reiki II for at least 6 months. Prior classes must have been in person with your teacher. I do not accept online, mail order, DVD or other distant Reiki training for qualification. Also, you must be able to draw the three symbols from Reiki II from memory. At the time of registration you are required to send in a copy of your Reiki II certificate. Prerequisite: Six months practice at Usui/Holy Fire Reiki II level. Class Time: 3 days: 9am – 6pm. A detailed class manual is included, and upon completion, a certificate from the International Center of Reiki training is awarded. For more details and to register check out  www.reikiandhealingservices.com or call (515) 490-8620.

Northern European Shamanism and the Seidr
Taught by Carole Meade, LMHC, Shamanic Practitioner for 20 years. Northern European Shamanism has been practiced for thousands of years. This ancient tradition has recently experienced a renaissance internationally. It has been described as an old Scandinavian form of magic with strong shamanic traits. It is primarily used as a divination/mediumship practice within the cultures where it has evolved. Seidr in Norse is pronounced Say-th where the d is pronounced like a th. In this tradition, the journeyers are sung into journey space using a chant instead of the more traditional rhythmic percussion. In this class you will learn to empower and to use the Seidr, a Norse staff and to engage with guides from the Northern European spirit tradition. Saturday, 9:30 to 5 Cost $125 7 CEUs.
