Reiki Level 2 with Diane Ferguson

with Diane Roll Ferguson at URU Yoga - Gulf Breeze
Saturday, December 8 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

Saturday December 8th 2018 9:00-3:30 at URU Gulf Breeze Treehouse

Investment: $175

Deposit of $50 is required by Nov. 28th to reserve your space.

The emphasis of this Level II training will be the introduction to the first three Reiki symbols, encouraging students to deepen their personal practice and learn to practice on others. This course will include a Reiki II Attunement, techniques for hand placement, distance healing, energizing spaces, and creating a clearer connection with life force energy.

Reiki II Training certification is required to professionally practice on others. Reiki I certification is a prerequisite for this course.

The Reiki attunement is what makes Reiki unique to other forms of healing touch and energy work. This ceremony, called Reiju (Ray-joo) in Japanese, is performed by the Reiki Master and opens and expands the main energy channels of the student's body, allowing universal energy, also known as Qi/Chi/Ki, to flow more freely and deeply.

Because of this opening process, the attunement also does what Reiki is meant to do — clear blockages. As a result, this can create significant energy changes within the individual and many will undergo an intense period of self-growth. Often, innate intuition and other gifts are more easily accessed.

Diane Ferguson is an Usui Ryoho Reiki Level III Master Teacher who began her study of Reiki in 2014 and has been working with others in this healing modality since 2015. Diane believes that the power of Reiki is limitless and can be applied to nearly every facet of your life. Diane is also a yoga instructor, Certified Health Coach, retreat facilitator, and ordained Minister.

Simplify 2019: Discover Your Word

with Kerry Whiteley at URU Yoga - Gulf Breeze
Saturday, December 15 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

We are coming to the end of 2018 and often times many of us begin thinking about what we want to happen in 2019. Maybe things did not go the way you hoped in 2018 and you think “2019 is my year!”

What do you plan to do to make it your year? We often look to a new year’s resolution to lead us to what we want. But often that resolution is something very specific such as “go to the gym more”, “lose 10 pounds”, “get a better job”, etc. But then when those things don’ t happen within the first few weeks, we get discouraged, lose steam, and are left feeling defeated. Or maybe you DO lose those 10 pounds but you still don’t feel the way you hoped.

That is because happiness is not about the things we get or accomplish, it is about how we feel in our lives. We often struggle with exercise, weight, job satisfaction, etc. not because we aren’t doing something right or we don’t know what to do, but because there are other things going on inside that determine why we behave in ways that go against what we say we want.

When we discover our word, we are taking a different spin on a new year’s resolution. While resolutions can often set us up for failure, choosing a word for the year gives us 365 days to reflect on our word in an intentional way and then watch how it will manifest in our lives.

The law of attraction simply states that we attract into our lives whatever we set our focus on. Bring into your life new focus. Set an intention and create your vision through your one word. After you discover your word, you will post it on your refrigerator, in your car, on your phone…wherever you can be reminded of your intention. Then you watch how it unfolds.

In this workshop, we will go through a 5 Step process to help you discover your word to move in the direction for how you want to feel. The “what you do” will come in time as you uncover what lies beneath and what your deepest desires truly are.

We will do light stretching, meditations, simple writing and reflection exercises, group connections, and sacred circling to discover your word. Bring water, journal, and pen, wear comfortable clothes, and allow yourself to be open and willing to discover.

Yin Pratyahara Experience

with David Bryan at URU Yoga
Friday, January 4 7:30 pm - 8:45 pm

This yin practice will occur in a dark room with only a candle to illuminate the teacher, David Bryan. There will be no talking and minimum sound, as you follow visual cues to come into postures with a ring of a bell to let you know to begin coming into the next posture. We will seek to turn within and become aware of what we are feeling. Pratyahara is the fifth of Patanjali's eight limbs of yoga and is often thought of as a precursor to concentration and meditation. Please feel free to send questions to David Bryan or email him at 7hondo5@gmail.com.
