Join Margo and Caitlan for these special Reiki classes for you and the animals around you. 

Caitlan- As a lifetime equestrian and animal lover, I began my Reiki studies with horses in mind. While I had already developed an appreciation for Reiki integrated into massage, it was not until I witnessed my first equine Reiki session that I felt truly drawn to the energy. Years later, Holy Fire Reiki is still an important tool in my daily training and horseback riding, as well as a favorite pastime of the other animals around the farm. The new Animal Reiki course further enhanced my ability to connect with all animals and better understand what they may need from me. I look forward to sharing these skills with you as we continue to witness the infinite possibilities of this energy!

Margo-  with my decades of healing experience with people, I was delighted and a little surprised when I embarked on training in the new Animal Reiki course developed by the International Center for Reiki Training. The Animal Reiki energy is so deeply healing and gentle for all animals, humans included. It has a unifying essence, and enables us to feel our place in nature. After the class, I began to feel like Snow White, with all kinds of birds and little creatures showing up to greet me! I have felt a greater sense of joy and connection to others since completing this training. My maltipoo, Puccini, has benefitted, too!

Safety- Observation-Consent

Our priorities in Animal Reiki reflect respect for all animals, including humans. The safety of animal Reiki recipient and practitioner is our top priority. In these classes, you will have the opportunity to work with horses, dogs and other animals on the farm! Our intention is to provide a great opportunity to connect to nature, animals and yourself. A list of local accommodations will be made available to students visiting from out of town.

Animal Reiki 1&2 September 30, October 1  9:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.


Animal Reiki I & II are taught together during a two-day class and includes two Animal Reiki Placements (attunements). For those who want to share Reiki with animals, this beginning training is comprehensive. Upon completion, you can offer Animal Reiki treatments to all species of animals.

The Animal Reiki energy received in this course is a unique Reiki energy given to us as a special life force energy for the animals.  The Placements given in the ICRT Animal Reiki I & II class will attune and unify the Animal Reiki symbol with each student’s existing Reiki energy and symbols and allow the practitioner to channel the Animal Reiki energy.

This course includes practitioner skills, tools, and techniques needed to share Reiki with the animals. It is a combination of lecture, discussion, and practice and is open to all Reiki lineages. The information and techniques for both levels include:

  • The history of ICRT Animal Reiki.

  • Animal Reiki defined and discussion of priorities for animals.

  • An Usui Reiki symbols refresher.

  • The Animal Reiki symbol—The Tree of Life.

  • Animal Reiki I & II Placements.

  • Animal Reiki techniques for in-person and distant sessions, including preparation exercises and healing technique meditations: Animal Reiki Grounding Exercise, Whole Body Awareness Exercise, Divine Animal Circle Healing Technique, Healing Compassion Fatigue, and Animal Grief Healing Meditation.

  • Discussion on giving Animal Reiki full sessions in person or live online, including session preparation, receiving the animal’s consent for Reiki, various Animal Reiki session environments, and developing your own Animal Reiki style.

  • Review of common healing issues for animals, including disharmony, unfulfilled purpose, loneliness, grief, confusion, illness, compassion fatigue, end of life, animals and children, and behavioral problems.

  • Distant Animal Reiki techniques for single animals or groups, candidates for distant Reiki, and how to use photos, written notes, Facetime, or live webcams for distant sessions.

  • How to give Reiki to many species of animals.

  • Balancing empathy and compassion, compassion fatigue and practitioner self-care, and end-of-life support, whether natural death or compassionate euthanasia.

  • Practice time working with animals in person or online.

  • Review of how to create a thriving Animal Reiki practice, including in the formal or professional environments of veterinary offices, zoos or wildlife rehab facilities, animal shelters, therapy animal organizations, animal sanctuaries, and ways you might use Reiki in these settings.

  • The ICRT Animal Reiki I & II Manual

  • A class certificate

While practice takes place during the class, it is expected that you will set aside additional time to practice after the class is completed. Please commit to additional time to practice Animal Reiki with animal members of your family or friends. This additional practice is necessary to completely gain the experience and confidence you need to use the Animal Reiki training.
