The Purrfect Way to Help our Furry Friends: Exploring Animal Reiki
With Sue Malcolm
Hosted by Yolanda Williams
This 44-page paperback publication contains vital information for any Reiki Practitioner working with animals.
Part 1 covers working with animals in different situations and basic animal body language awareness and the anatomy of dogs, cats, and equines.
Part 2 details a variety of UK veterinary, animal welfare, and health & safety legislation and guidance.
Ideal top-up training resource for many Animal Reiki training courses and provides information about animals that Reiki Council member organisations, including the UK Reiki Federation consider to be necessary for recognition as an Animal Reiki Practitioner.
This workshop covers information in the above publication but also much more, including practical advice, examples, case studies, calming signals, common behaviours, offering Reiki to rescue animals and what you need to know relating to UK legal & professional guidance.
Delivered by Sue via zoom in small groups and questions are welcome.
A CPD certificate will be sent to you afterward with a handout (over 30 pages) including details not included in the Understanding Animals: A Working Guide for Reiki Practitioners publication. It is recommended that you also purchase the above paperback.
Reiki Master Practitioner & Teacher, Animal Reiki Master Practitioner & Teacher, UK Reiki Federation Member
Sue Malcolm co-authored the publication Understanding Animals: A Working Guide for Reiki Practitioners, and delivers accredited training for both Reiki and Animal Reiki.
Sue has voluntarily offered Reiki to a large number of animals in various rescue settings over many years. Whilst seeing wonderful results and learning what these animals wished to teach her, Sue also sat on the management committee of the UK Reiki Federation for nine years as their Animal Reiki Co-ordinator, leading their Animal Reiki Agenda. Additionally, Sue set up and led an Animal Reiki sub-group for the Reiki Council for six years. Through this work, National Occupational standards were created for Animal Reiki training and criteria were agreed within all of the Reiki Council organisations for (i) the professional recognition of Animal Reiki Practitioners, (ii) professional recognition/ accreditation of Animal Reiki Practitioner training courses and (iii) professional recognition of Animal Reiki Master teachers.
Sue strongly views Animal Reiki as a therapy in its own right, not simply an ‘add on’ to human Reiki. She regularly hears from her students “I didn’t realise there was so much to Animal Reiki – it isn’t just taking Reiki and offering it to animals. We really need to understand Animals too”.
