Wow. Just WOW. I spent an amazing day with Janie, and all my other Reiki Level 1 students, today and I already feel so transformed and full of such positive energy I didn’t even know I could access. This evening I just feel so strongly that I am doing the right thing on my path and at my time I can’t even explain. HUGE thanks to all involved today and I can’t wait to connect again in a month xxx

Amazing teaching from Janie yesterday on the Reiki 1 day! She was so welcoming and approachable (which always helps when you’re trying something new!) and was very honest with discusssions, the Reiki world and her general attitude with the course was very authentic so the days structure flowed very organically.
Thank you for your time and knowledge Janie!
