Animal Healing Class May 5

Animal Healing Class 
Making a Difference
Do you love animals and long to help them feel less anxious, more comfortable, and fully de-stressed?
Would you like to learn how healing energy (Reiki) can help animals and how you can become an animal healer?
Animals sense our energy and emotions. They also love healing energy and can benefit emotionally and physically from energy healing sessions.

Come learn how to work with animals in a new way: sharing healing energy with them and tuning into the essence of “who” they are and what they need most for reassurance and comfort. We will practice on a variety of animals, including pets and animals at Poplar Spring animal sanctuary. (A small portion of the cost of the class benefits this nonprofit.)
Sunday, May 5, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Rockville, MD and Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary (Poolesville, MD)

Cost: $175

For Further Details and to Register Call: (202) 686-8202

About the Instructor

    At age 13, Carol Richardson was told she could “cure animals with her hands,” by a mystic being studied by Duke University for his psychic abilities.

    In 2007, near a wooded preserve, Carol was able to calm a wild coyote so that a plastic jar could be removed from its head.

    After her dog had a mass on the bladder for over 10 months, Carol did animal healing on her dog, and the next day, when two veterinarians re-examined the bladder ultrasound, the mass was gone.

    Since studying Eastern spirituality, Carol has come to understand that we are all meant to be healers, healing ourselves, others, and all living beings.

This therapy is an adjunct to care provided by a veterinarian. For a diagnosis seek medical advice form your veterinarian.
