Reiki Level 1 & Level 2 Workshop

Sunday, August 13th, 2017
9:00 am — 3:00 pm

Grama’s Healing Porch
705 E. 3rd Street, Sterling, Illinois

Level 1 is a practitioner's initiation into Reiki and is open to anyone. The focus during Level 1 is on opening the energy channels on a physical level, allowing the practitioner to connect to the universal life force energy, which flows from the cosmos through the crown chakra and down to the heart and hands. Many Reiki Masters emphasize self-Reiki as the goal of the Level 1 designation, encouraging students to focus on practicing Reiki on
themselves, thereby working through their own obstacles. Many experience physical symptoms of energy in their palms after the first attunement, including tingling, coolness or heat. The Level 1 course also includes an overview of the history of Reiki, hand placements and self and group practice.

Level 2 is often defined by a focus on practicing Reiki on others, as well as an expanded opening of the energy channels. Additionally students receive the "Reiki Symbols" and Level 2 attunement. The Reiki symbols allow the practitioner to connect more deeply to the universal energy, as well as draw on the qualities that the symbols represent. This includes the ability to provide distance Reiki, or sending healing energy to individuals wherever they may be. The symbol also may be used to clear energy blockages across time, as well as physical locations.
The Level 2 attunement focuses on opening up the central channel even more, with an emphasis on the heart chakra. Typically Level 2 also includes practice in drawing the symbols; invoking their qualities, as well as distance healing.

Cost; $130 for each. If you purchase both Reiki 1 and 2 together, you receive a 20% discount for both. A $50 deposit is needed for Reiki 2.



Animal Spirit Guides
Saturday, July 15th, 2017
2:00 — 4:00 pm
Morrison Rockwood Marina and Restaurant
18301 Lake Road, Morrison, Illinois

Come spend an afternoon learning what it means to have a special connection to your pet or favorite animal in the zoo. Did you ever wonder why you like a certain kind of animal? Do you have a collection of stuffed animals, or porcelain animals?

In this workshop we will learn what our animals mean on spiritual level. The Indigenous people of South and North America believe that each animal has a message, or as they would say, “holds a special medicine”. By learning about the animals, birds, fish, insects, etc, that you are drawn to or see in a dream, you can understand more about the circumstances you encounter in your life. We will be taking a guided journey to see what animals come to us with their special “medicine” message and other experiential exercises.

Cost $35


Tapping Into Your Inner Voice
A Deepening of Your Natural, Intuitive Abilities

Saturday, August 19th, 1:00 — 3:00 pm
Grama's Healing Porch
1770 Hoover Road, Deer Grove, Illinois

Do you want to tap into more of your intuitive self? Do you feel like you could break through some of life’s barriers with a different approach? Then come and join us on a deeper journey of your intuitive, energetic self.

We all have intuitive gifts. We like to refer them as our Inner Voice. Take a couple hours to learn how to ground yourself; to be able to hear more of your intuitive voice. Learn how to sense energy and manifest your hearts desire.
In this workshop, we will be discussing tapping into our inner voice, and then we will dive deeper into our own personal way of understanding our intuitive skills. Time will be allowed for questions and most of the workshop will be experiential.

Please bring a journal and a pen, a small item that represents you; a small rock or stone, and mostly importantly, an open mind and heart.

This workshop is a continuation of our first Tapping Into Your Inner Voice workshop. If you haven't been to the first one, you will still benefit from foundational information and then dive deeper.

We look forward to assisting you on your new journey.

Cost $35



Weekend Retreats


Honoring Your Inner Voice
3:00 pm, Friday, October 27th

2:00 pm, Sunday, October 29th

House in the Wood Retreat Center
Delevan, WI

How do we listen to our Inner Voice? How can we quiet the mind to be able to really hear what our true needs are? How can we openly express our needs without feeling judged by others and more importantly ourselves? How do we
find our true inner voice to allow us to connect to others in a higher way? We connect through learning about ourselves. To do this we must come together as a community without judgment, and honor each other for who we are.

This weekend will allow us to work on clearing old patterns that no longer serve us as we determine how to prepare ourselves to speak from the heart and honor our Inner Voice. We will dive deep within to listen to messages that
we receive from Spirit, Ourselves, and Others.

We will do several other experiential exercises; two fire ceremonies, sound healing ceremony, and a guided meditation trance dance, to clear and call in what we really need in all areas of our lives.

Cost is $525. This includes food, lodging and the workshop. Sign up by emailing or call 773-817-0923. $100 deposit is due when signing up. Space is limited.

Let this weekend enhance your sacred journey of finding yourself and your true voice.


Weekend Retreats – Friday through Sunday

Our Retreats will offer a Spiritual Way of learning of how to connect to our Higher Self thru Indigenous Earth-Honoring teachings. In experiential exercises, we will integrate Nature, Music, and an Openness of Heart and Mind, creating a sanctuary for personal growth and community.




Apprenticeship Programs


Apprenticeship - Earth Medicine Altar
A Four Weekend, Earth Honoring, Apprenticeship Program

March 24-26, 2017; June 23-25, 2017;
August 25-27, 2017; October 6-8, 2017

Are you yearning to feel a spiritual connection to the earth?
Are you wondering what happened to the magic of life?
Are you disconnected from your intuition?
Are you looking for spiritual community?

Join us on a journey through the Earth honoring doorway, where we will reconnect with our intuition, magic of nature and community. We will step into the mystery of the elements to wind our way through a discovery of ourselves, and of our relationship to the natural world.
Indigenous cultures all over the world are and have been in relationship with nature as part of their
everyday life. From North and South American, Indian, Tibetan, African, and Druid; they all have
some form of an Earth Altar: a Mandala, a Medicine Cloth, or a Mesa. In this program you will be creating
your own individual Earth Medicine Altar. If you currently have a mesa/medicine cloth this program
will help deepen your relationship with it. By using universal principals and an honoring of your
own spiritual lineage you will create an altar unique to you and your own personal energy medicine.

The first weekend will focus on laying the foundation; learning the basics of who, what, where and
why nature speaks to us, and how we can use that information for personal and spiritual growth. In
each consecutive weekend we will build our Altar/Medicine Cloth by understanding our personal
relationship to Fire, Earth, Air and Water, a guardian, and a part of our Physical, Emotional, Spiritual
and Mental self.

We will also meet in groups once a month to practice what you learned over the weekends.
