What Settings Do You Prefer for Relaxation and Learning?


Home much does the environment affect your ability to relax and learn? 
I have offered sessions and trainings in many settings, from hospitals to horse farms. No matter where I am, I feel the work is the same. I wonder though, how much does the space make a difference to the enjoyment and learning experience of students and clients.
What is your favorite setting in which to ‘Relax and Learn?’ This poll only takes a few moments. Your feedback is much appreciated and will determine the location of future classes and sessions.

The Reiki (Yogi) Principles –

Today Only …

Let Go of Anger,

Let go of Worry,

With Thankfulness,

Work Diligently (on one’s self)

Be Kind to (Self and) Others.

—From Founder of Usui Reiki Ryohō, USUI Mikao Sensei 

(B. August 15, 1865 – D. March 9, 1926; as written on his memorial stone.)

Photos here are of places where sessions, classes and retreats have been/will be offered. The first photo was taken at the North Shore Medical Center, in the hospital. No matter where I have offered reiki sessions people report “feeling relaxed.” So I wonder, how much do the aesthetics of the setting matter? What are your thoughts?

REIKI TRAINING – Dreamtime Wellness™ Reiki Trainings, 1st Degree/Shoden (Beginning Level) will resume in April.  The answers to this poll may determine ‘where.’ This beginning level of reiki practice is intended for self-care and self-healing. You will also learn to offer reiki on family, friends, and pets. Includes a manual, mentoring, and certificate of completion at the end of 50 hours of training, practical experience and self-study.

CEU’s – Offered to case managers, body workers, massage therapists nurses, and social workers  upon request.

Enjoy today in a healthy way, ~ Karen

Food Combining

Food Combining

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC knows the effects poor food combining can have on the digestive system. It can produce indigestion, fermentation and gas formation and if prolonged, can lead to toxemia and disease.

A few examples:
Eating raw and cooked foods together
Bananas and Milk
Berries and Dairy

Spices and herbs are often added in Ayurvedic cooking to help make foods more compatible or to ease undesirable effects.

One example: adding cooling cilantro to hot spicy food can help it to be digested.

“Blockage is disease/Flow is health”
