The value of restoring balance using Reiki cannot be understated. I have seen arguments diffused, illnesses give way to a balanced approach, & relationships with oneself & others begin to thrive. All of these benefits are from using the practice of Reiki. --- Teresa Wojtowicz
The Usui System of Reiki is the original system as it was handed down through Mikao Usui. Usui was the samurai monk who discovered Reiki on a 21 day vision quest. Usui called Reiki, "The secret art of inviting happiness." Here at Willow Stick, we strive to teach the most pure form of the original Reiki system as possible.
We teach Reiki in the original 3 levels. Level one gives you the skills to practice Reiki on yourself. In the second level, you will learn how to apply the practice to others. For an exponential expansion of the practice, you will receive the master symbol in Level 3. The work at this level does not make you a "Reiki Master." But, you are given tools to magnify the effects of Reiki.
Note: A "Reiki Master" is someone who has taught and attuned at least one other person to the art of Reiki. We are developing a Reiki Teacher Training that will involve 12 months of study and apprenticeship. As soon as the curriculum is ready we will let you know.
We hold Reiki Share several times a month. Anyone is welcome to come try Reiki giving and receiving for themselves. We just ask for a donation to help with facility costs.
-Had an amazing day learning the practice of Reiki. So welcoming and full of knowledge. I left feeling empowered and ready to not only improve myself but help others!!! The ladies [Teresa & Fiona] are truly an inspiration. I look forward to returning and learning more.
-I attended the Reiki Share on the Full Moon and was surrounded by positive energy, love, & light. Teresa and Fiona and everyone who attended this group have gifted energies directed by creator. I will definitely return for other classes.
-Teresa and Fiona are amazing Teachers. I have been blessed to participate in their Reiki class and walked out with awesome energy and intention.
The Apprenticeship currently has 8 levels. Upon completion of Level 8 the apprentice is asked to complete 8 hours of practicum work to solidify the skills learned in the first 8 levels.
In this course work, you will be trained in the "Core Shamanic" method of the shaman's journey. You will take 10-12 journeys into Non-Ordinary Reality to work on your Chakra system. You will not find this training anywhere except Willow Stick Healing Arts.
This is an overnight, residential training.
This will be similar course work to the workshop held at Sandilea. But, it is not an overnight experience. It is held in our training space in Lansing, Michigan.
A Vision Quest is a rite of passage in many cultures around the planet. It can be an experience that will help you identify, clarify or confirm the future path for your life. It may be a time of healing or of rediscovering your inner peace. You may resolve an internal conflict or gain insight into external struggles.
There are 5 preparatory classes prior to the actual Quest. We teach you how to make the most of your Quest experience.
After the classes, you will spend 2 days and 2 nights at our special retreat space, Sandilea. You will be fasting. You will participate in your Quest experience in the way that is most meaningful to you.
Don't worry.... There will be Quest facilitators nearby in the unlikely event you need something.
We hold spring and a fall Vision Quests each year. If you want to know more, please contact us for an appointment to discuss your readiness for this experience.
Some of these include The Prayer Bead & Rosary Creation Workshop, Oracle Card Reading classes and others. We love to teach. So, if we get an idea, we create the class. We are also open to the ideas of others.
We have welcomed many guest speakers & trainers in the past. These include people presenting on varied topics such as Numerology, Auricular Acupuncture, Homeopathic Remedies, Angelic Communication, Working with Gem Stones, and many others. If you have a specialty you would like to present here in our space, let us know. We would love to talk to you.
