SPECIAL REIKI AT STUDIO 34 in West Phila with Fran Staret, Shinpiden Reiki Master

Hello Beautiful Reiki Friends,

I hope this finds you happy and well and enjoying the kaleidoscope
of Autumn colors and wonders around us!

As we begin transitioning into the winter months, we also
begin the holiday season of honoring diverse cultural
celebrations and gatherings that acknowledge, remember
and appreciate what we have, those we love and the joy
we experience in our lives.

I'm deeply grateful for each of you and the circles of love
that inspire and encourage me to be in the world to the best
of my joy and ability every day! In appreciation and return of
these beautiful, bountiful blessings to you and all of life that
supports my soul in shining it's light, and as an offering  of
support to you and the beautiful difference you each make in
the world, with Angelic hosts I joyfully proclaim that begin-
ning December 8th, I'm starting Two NEW Reiki Practice
Groups at Studio 34:

The first group is a Weekly Reiki Development Circle that focuses
on restorative self-healing practice and personal empowerment.
The second group is a Monthly Reiki Dojo and Practitioner Share
that focuses on community empowerment and healing session
exchange. Similar to how our reiki neighbors in Japan practice at
the Usui Reiki Gakkai (original learning society), both groups are
designed to powerfully support us in our personal self-healing
practice and in giving reiki to others. Full details for each are
included below.

Whether you’ve been feeling like a bright light, a dim bulb or a flicker-
ing flame, I hope you'll consider sharing in the healing warmth of our
vibrant reiki community throughout this winter season!

Please feel free to forward this to other reiki practitioners who may
benefit from the groups! I always enjoy hearing from you - call or write
with any questions, comments or suggestions.

Brightest blessings to each of you and your personal circles
of love for a beautiful~bountiful~blissful Thanksgiving and
winter holiday season!

Description: Breathing is the most readily accessible resource we have for creating and sustaining our own vital energy and vibrant health, yet the majority of us have forgotten this vital pathway for breath. If we look at the biology of babies and children, they breathe with their whole bodies, oxygenating every cell. As we move through life, for all kind of reasons, we develop habits of holding and restricting the breath. Since the breath affects all ten systems of our physical and spiritual biology, many disorders develop due to restricted habits of breathing. Discover how to fathom your breath to its full potential for physical healing, emotional balance, and, ultimately, the direct realization of who you are.

What is Healing Breath Consciouness ™ (HBC): Healing Breath Consciousness™ is an active system of rhymthic breathwork developed by Sama’Ra Kamui Bodhisattva to answer to the call of the highly toxic society of the 21st Century. Drawing from his home base wisdom in Spiritual Biology, the Healing Arts and Science, Pranayama, Martial Arts, Sacred Geometry, Yoga and Classical Chinese Medicine, Sama’Ra brings you a powerful distillation of somatic practices and breathing techniques to help you navigate every dimension of your life. In this workshop, you will learn three powerful ratio of breath, which are brought together in conjunction with moving exercises and meditation to learn how to quiet the mind and control the energy flow called nadis in the human body. Making these esoteric teachings accessible to the modern student, he shows you how to enter mindful-breathing and reconnect you with the nature of your mind, and discover the true joy of freedom. It is then possible to clear deeply held emotional blockage and stress that have built inside the body.

* Featuring: Mei-yann Hwang’s workshop will open you to explore a potent modality of healing and meditation based on David Elliott's Intentional Breathwork System. You will be introduced to the various tools available to help quiet the mind and move energy blocks. Once you experience these tools and connect to what is possible in a breathwork session, you will be supported to continue your own Spiritual Practice. Highlights include: Key to unlocking the heart & chakra balancing.

* In Level 2, we will explore a deeper connection to the energy flow of your body through the Power Principles of Nutrients & Mastering Vital Health. Now, it's about sustaining & revitalized the body & mind to keep it at optimum performance. Topics include alkaline Diet, Blood pH, Food Combinations & Chart, Enzymes, 'Poisons' and Self-mastery.

* Overwhelming peace.
* Renewed energy.
* Optimum Health & Peak Performance.
* Living in the moment.
* Healing of physical discomfort.
* Feeling of Self-worth, Centered and Abundance.

Whether you want to use breathwork simply for stress reduction, develop healthy habits, or you are looking for an entry point into a daily practice of spiritual mindful living, get ready to embark on a transformational journey and discover the true joy of the art of breathing.
