Yoga and Reiki : Rest and Restore Sessions

Weekly Group Session are now finished but you can book a one-to-one with Bláithín via her booking page below.

What to Expect on these Sessions

This practice will start with a very gentle yoga release taken seated or standing.  The aim of which is to tease out surface tensions of the week and bring your body into a state of grounded ease.  You can then choose to set yourself up in a supported seated position or lying down.  It can be nice to burn some incense or essential oils of your preference. 

The distant Group healing session will then begin.  There is nothing you will need to to, simply allow your self to be relaxed and receptive.  

'This is a  gentle energy cleanse that will serve to release holding, tension and stresses that build up from week to week. This will not serve in the same way as an individual one-to-one Reiki healing.  The purpose is to maintain weekly wellbeing so that you can find greater ease with daily choices and the unavoidable stresses of  modern living. Mentally it can help to clear out the clutter so that you might be able to see the wood from the trees.  Emotionally it will support a sense of internal safety so that you might face day to day vulnerabilities with more confidence in your own ability to cope.  Physically the body will respond positively to any pressure we release mentally and emotionally'

More than anything else these session will provide you with some precious space that you need so that you can simply Be as you are.  Each week you can choose if that is a practice you wish to engage with.  As such, if you have signed up but cannot attend the live session, you are still required to add your name into the discussion for inclusion in the distant healing on each week.  It will not be assumed that because you have booked that you still are in a place to receive. I honor your power of choice, this power exists with you in every moment.

What is Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese word made from the terms meaning “soul, spirit” and “energy, life force”. It is a form of healing based on the understanding that there is an energy field surrounding our bodies. Disease arises when this energy is blocked or imbalanced, and manipulation of the field by a reiki practitioner can restore wellbeing. The practitioner does not use his or her personal energy for this but rather channels universal energy to re-energise the field around the patient.

Reiki is ancient in origin and was present in Japan in many forms, although the most common form used in the West is Usui Reiki, which was developed in the 19th century by Mikao Usui. Usui had a spiritual experience after several days of fasting and meditation at the top of a mountain, where he acquired the ability to heal using reiki. He taught his system to a number of students, who in turn taught it to others, thereby establishing a lineage which is ultimately connected to Usui.  

Healing alone is not the sole aim of reiki practicing, as it is associated with spiritual development and personal growth. As such, the practice of reiki is also recommended to healthy people, as a way to maintain their health.

The Reiki Federation Ireland website states that reiki does not cure ailments. Reiki is considered a complementary therapy rather than an alternative to conventional medicine.
