Shaman Journey and New Reiki Class Series at Rising Tide International

Dec 31, 2016 04:56PM

Rev. Zan Benham will launch 2017 with a Shaman Journey Experience on January 28 and new Reiki certification classes, starting with Reiki I on February 4. 

Rev. Zan, also known as ButterflyDeerwoman, has been offering Shaman Journeys for over 13 years, as a powerful venue for opening intuition and awakening inner guidance. The journey itself is similar to a guided meditation, enhanced by the heart beat of her mother drum.  

Through the drum’s reverberation and Zan’s ability to channel, each participant will enter their sub-conscious and super-conscious to access guides, helpers, relations and totems for healing and insight. Each persons journey is customized based on individual frequencies, needs and perceptions. Participants are asked to RSVP and should bring a mat, pillow, blanket, eye covering, spirit stone or rock for enhancement, paper to record their journey. 

In the Reiki classes, participants will learn about this ancient and powerful hands-on healing, dating before 620 BC. Reiki was brought to the West by Dr. Mikado Usui in 1922. The word means “Rei” means “universal,” and “K” means “light force energy.” The study of Reiki aligns with this Ki, the God energy within us, through symbols and breath handed down by one Reiki Master to another. Rev. Zan, has been teaching Reiki since 2003.
