Practitioner Training for Sacred Childbirth with Reiki

Radiance is thrilled to be hosting Cori Nielsen for a Practitioner Training weekend at the end of March.  The training is open to Reiki Practitioners of Level II or higher.
7 pm Friday - 3 pm Sunday Mar. 30 - April 1, 2011
Tuition $425 ($100 deposit reserves your space).  You can stop into Radiance, or call for an application form.  Registrations are being taken directly by Cori Nielsen.
Practitioner Training

This profound training is life-transforming. We gather in a circle to first evening to pass the talking stick as we introduce ourselves, to state our intent, and to hold profoundly sacred, safe Reiki space for each other as we share our stories of birth, miscarriage, adoption, infertility, and the myriad of other ways that we have been wounded in our sexuality. This intimate, nurturing space is held throughout the next two days as students experience the Sacred Childbirth with Reiki process. They are taught how to use this process to assist their partner in releasing their bodies’ negative feelings and memories about birth. They learn how to guide their class partner to re-experience and clear all negativity from their own birth. This clearing creates a clean palate or blank slate for them to create new, positive, vibrantly peaceful pathways for the birthing energy to flow as they practice how to birth their “dream” baby.
Each student experiences the process two to three times both as the receiver and the giver. Not only does this create in the practitioner a clear palate to be able to hold a neutral space for their clients, it also allows them to encode at a cellular level a peaceful, sacred, joyous way to birth their dreams.
Life-transforming, empowering Reiki sessions, an instructional manual, specific tools to work with clients, discussion, sharing, integration time, and deep heart connections in a calm, peaceful, sacred space make this week-end an invaluable experience.

Embark upon this week-end of sacred ceremony to:

  • Experience this process yourself to release any negativity you hold around birth.
  • Access the ancient painless birthing wisdom locked in your DNA and joyously birth your "dream" baby.
  • Learn the tools to empower couples to create a tranquil, drug-free birth, without pain on their own.
  • Receive certification as a Sacred Childbirth with Reiki™ practitioner.
Pre-requisite: Reiki Level II or above

Psyche's Journey: Ritual Priestessing Skills Workshop

With Sylvan Redbird (and guest facilitators TBA)

Sunday, Jan. 22 and Sunday, Feb. 5, 2012
12:00-4:30pm at Radiance
9 W Grant St., Lancaster PA  

We will be exploring the myth of Psyche, focusing on the challenges of her initiatory journey, developing trance techniques and diverse ritual structures to experience this story as we reclaim our own divine selves. 
This workshop is an opportunity to build on the trance and story techniques taught in a Reclaiming Rites of Passage class, but this is not a prerequisite for participation.  Participants should have taken an Elements of Magic or have equivalent experience with basic pagan circle casting/elements understanding.  If you are unsure about your experience, call Sarah at Radiance.

Cost is on a sliding scale: $95 to $75

Call Radiance, 717-290-1517, or stop in to register for this workshop.
Please review the myth of Psyche and Cupid (Hamilton’s Mythology or similar collection is fine), as we will not be working with the entire arch of the story.  Please attend both sessions, and there will be some personal work between dates.  

With his heart and his hands, eyes illuminating with light yet accustomed to the darkness, Sylvan weaves his art-filled life like a Faerie Spider.  In the center of his web, a healing spell of Love; his body a bridge between the Human and the Spirit World (especially the Fey and the Ancestors).  Sylvan, anchored by his daily recovery practices, now drinks deeply of ecstatic worship and quiet solitude, balancing the mundane and Mystery, embracing embodiment.  Originally of the Welsh Tradition, he is a teacher of the Reclaiming Tradition and a Feri initiate.
