I don't know how long I have known Alice Langholt, the creator of Practical Reiki, but I remember my first impressions:
It was at the Universal Light Expo and she was this short, spunky ball of energy who bounced up to me and started talking about energy. She was insightful, witty and had a strong moral code that impressed me. This was just about the time Reiki was going mainstream and I was inundated by "fakie reiki" people trying to sell Reiki in a thousand different ways. At first I was skeptical about her premise - Reiki simplified, but the more I talked to her and looked into her materials the more I was impressed by what she had achieved. She had distilled Reiki down to its basics and tailored it to the mainstream health care industry.
For a long time it seemed like it was just going to be Alice against the world, but then she did it again when she started teaching others, not only how to practice this simplified Reiki, but how to teach it themselves. Alice has gone to a better place (a very nice home in Maryland), but her best and brightest student is still here.
When Joe and I first met he had never studied Reiki, but he had been fascinated for years and dove in like a dolphin to the ocean. Studying Usui Reiki, Pranic Healing, Practical Reiki and diving deeply into energy medicine. I have watched his expanding knowledge and talent with awe and pride over these last few years and I am so very excited that he has begun teaching.
When I introduced him to Alice I had no idea what it would become, but his first Practical Reiki class starts March 19th.
I am incredibly impressed by the thoroughness of his preparations and planning for these classes, building on the foundation Alice laid out. I can say with certainty that this training will be life-changing.
Now I'll let him tell you about it:
Whether you are new to energy work, or a seasoned professional, Practical Reiki will empower and strengthen your connection to healing energy.
