SARA President Kathleen Prasad will once again be doing animal Reiki training at Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary in Essex, England. Remus is home to some of the oldest horses in the world and provides a wonderful and safe space for learning and for sharing Reiki.
On September 5, Kathleen will be teaching a one-day Equine Reiki Training class from 9-5. September 6 to 8, she will be teaching a Reiki 3 & Animal Reiki Teacher Training: Shinpiden Master Teacher class from 10-5 each day.
- Developing our energy centers: How to build a powerful energetic foundation.
- Horses as our Spiritual Teachers: Meditations to help us open up to spiritual connections with horses, their wisdom, and the lessons we can learn from them.
Energy healing for horses:
- Ethics for energy workers when offering healing to horses
- Mental focus techniques to enhance treatments
- Practical suggestions for offering energy
- Traditional Reiki techniques to try
- Special equine considerations, techniques and tips
There will be opportunity to work with the horses of Remus as well as time for discussion, questions and feedback.
All students will receive a class manual and certificate of completion.
Kathleen will also give an evening talk on September 4 (6:30-8:30 pm) on Traditional Japanese Reiki for Your Animal’s Healing. During the talk, she will share the basics of the Japanese system of Reiki and how it can help your animals. You will learn specific techniques that you can use immediately to help support your animal’s physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Kathleen will also guide the group in an animal healing circle and offer each participant an experience of Reiki as well. Copies of her books, Animal Reiki and Reiki for Dogs will also be given away in a drawing at the end of the evening.
This is Kathleen’s second visit to Remus – she taught similar classes at the sanctuary in 2012, and they were very well received. This is what one of the students said after the class:
“For me the Equine Reiki Training with Kathleen has been an important turning point in my professional development as a Reiki Practitioner. I have used Reiki on my cats and horses for a long time especially a foster horse that I took under my wing for two years who had been abused in his younger years.
Through my efforts to make his life as nice for him as possible I discovered for myself that horses love Reiki. I wanted to find a way to shout this out to everyone else and I needed to connect with a person or persons who had respect and experience in giving Reiki to animals and especially horses. I found Kathleen through research and patience and at the same time Kathleen was also searching for students to develop SARA (Shelter Animal Reiki Association) outside the USA.
I attended the one day Equine Reiki Training course in Essex. I knew what my expectations where and I was looking forward to meeting other like-minded people. Quietly, calmly and precisely Kathleen took us through the methods of giving Reiki to horses under differing sets of circumstance, how to say a mantra and to give thanks for the work that we were doing. What I enjoyed the most was to go into the horse paddocks and to stand silently and with intent offering Reiki to the horses and asking their permission to share their space. This is something I will not forget.
Thank you Kathleen for helping me to realise that I was not alone, and partly Reiki is about instinct and intuition but most importantly it is about leaving any preconceived ideas you have about the treating horses and let them guide you. They know what they need from us.”

This is a unique opportunity to learn directly from a world-renowned animal Reiki expert and the founder of SARA. There are still a few spaces left – for more info and to sign up for the workshops, go to www.animalreikisource.com.
Sue Burton, founder of Remus:
“We care for some 200 animals at the Sanctuary, our work is often very much along the same lines as a hospice situation, giving these animals, most of which are survivors of the most horrendous cruelty, at the hands of mankind, the very best of care allowing the younger ones to get over their abuse and develop into happy adults, and for the older ones to spend their twilight years doing as they wish. Nothing is asked of them. They are fed, watered, cared for and loved. They receive regular veterinary and farrier attention as required, holistic therapies and help, and despite many of our horses being very much an older population, with many being between 30 and 52 years old, these horses are in excellent condition.”
