Reiki, a form of energy healing, is an ancient practice that is used to reduce stress, improve health and quality of life, and support physical and emotional healing. Research suggests that using Reiki as a complementary therapy activates the parasympathetic nervous system to heal body and mind via the relaxation response. Reiki is accessible to everyone and is easy to learn. Practitioners use specific hand positions, held for a few minutes on or near the client’s clothed body.

This 2-day workshop is a comprehensive, experiential training based on James Pennebaker’s 30 years of research in writing to heal. The curriculum will provide easily adaptable lessons, activities, and guideposts for anyone working in the healthcare field — physicians, nurses, mental health professionals, hospice workers, health coaches, and others — to use in their personal meditative practices for health and well-being. These learned skills subsequently transfer to the care of their clients and patients as they become more attuned to the benefits of writing for health.
