Upcoming Events

Reiki Sharing Circle
This monthly sharing circle in my home (on the deck this summer) is open to anyone to attend to give and receive reiki. Sharing with others enriches your understanding and experience of reiki practice and gives opportunity to fully relax while others treat you.  This is usually a small group and we take turns being treated while the others in the circle lay hands on us. No charge for this gathering. Please contact me if you are interested in attending as these circles do currently have attendance limitations.
First Date: 30 June 2021 07:00PM
Recurring: 7:00 PM Last Wednesday of the month
Location: Shelley's home
Fee: none
Just Reiki-- Four Day Reiki Intensive on Pender Island
Imagine four days of deep relaxation, every morning giving and receiving reiki in small groups of two or three, in the quiet of Shelley's home. We begin the day with a short circle and then move to the treatment tables, having opportunity to practise with different people in the small group each day. Afternoons and evenings are free to enjoy in relaxation, exploration of the island, creative projects, or anything you choose. On the final day we enjoy lunch together and are ready for departure by 2:00 PM. I look forward to hosting a small group for this intensive. Please register as soon as you can as space will be more limited than usual.
First Date: 06 June 2021 09:00AM
Recurring: 9:00 AM - Noon with lunch on the final day until 2:00 PM
Location: Shelley's home
Fee: $150.00 includes lunch on the last day
Nature Constellation Days on Pender Island--Space for Joy Circles
This is an afternoon outdoors embraced by nature and the beauty of land and ocean, in the company of curious, courageous and kind individuals. Constellations done in nature invite serendipity of wind, insects, animals and weather offering their medicine. We have short breaks throughout the afternoon.  Please bring your own snacks, drinks and whatever you require to be comfortable outdoors. Some chairs are available but please bring your own if possible.  Also bring whatever weighs heavily on your heart or perhaps a question of environment or landscape to be addressed in circle. We will do some small group constellation exercises as well as set individual constellations with the support of the whole circle. A day to look forward to every year, but this year when it is difficult to gather indoors we will meet outdoors four consecutive months - our regular Space for Joy circles. Please register there, in the Space for Joy event. If rain is threatening, I will send an email to cancel the circle by 7 PM Saturday evening, the night before the circle. Please bring your chair and anything you need to be comfortable for the afternoon outdoors. (water, a hat...)

Reiki: Online Introduction or Refresh
Some connection, with reiki, with me. Ask questions and begin the practice. This is an opportunity for you to become acquainted with me and with the practice of reiki in an online forum. It could also be a wonderful refresher for anyone who feels they have 'lost touch' with reiki practice.  In the first forty minute session, we will introduce ourselves and you will have a chance to express your questions. I will talk about reiki, my relationship with it and my experience of it in my life. In the second forty minute session I will demonstrate a self treatment as you follow along. This is usually a relaxing and nourishing experience. You will be able to ask questions or make comments as needed. The two sessions will be held consecutively, on one afternoon or evening with only a short break between. You will require a device such as computer, tablet or phone to log into Zoom for the sessions. I would also suggest to have a comfortable seat or lay on a bed or sofa and have water available. Anyone who registers for one of these sessions will be given a $30 discount on the next reiki class they register for with me.

Space For Joy Constellation Circle
This summer the constellation circles on Pender Island will be held outdoors on the third Sunday of the month 1:30-5:00 PM.   A constellation circle is a deeply healing place, a sacred place. Those who come to the circle come to find release from patterns, to have rich encounter with others, to see the world from a new perspective. We leave the circle with insight into our family and ancestral loyalties, with a deeper compassion for others and with a heightened awareness of our connection. When we set a constellation ourselves the most common outcome is more freedom to love. In these circles we usually set two or perhaps three constellations. Please pre-register as the group size must be limited to 10 people at present.
First Date: 20 June 2021 01:30PM

Ki to Health=Ki to Happiness
Imagine feeling confident that you have tools to maintain your health, that you have a wealth of simple things you can do each day that keep you balanced and energized. Now, more than ever, we need to nurture body, mind and spirit. Western medicine is truly wonderful in all it can control and repair, but as we have seen with the Covid 19 pandemic, there are limits to this approach to medicine. Traditional Asian medicine cultivates balance and harmony to create strength and resilience in the body, so that we are prepared for challenges when they come. It is not an alternative to Western medicine, but a complement. It works to support you and can provide you with valuable resources to maintain health. The more tools you have to create balance and harmony in body, mind and spirit, the more confident and healthy you will be. Ki  is a Japanese word for energy or breath and when it is flowing smoothly in our bodies we are healthy. Ki is the basic resource of Traditional Asian medicine. My course, Ki to Health = Ki to Happiness, introduces you to ki and the basic concepts of Asian medicine. Through practical exercises and experiences you will learn to recognize and enhance the flow of ki in your body. Ki or energy, is an unlimited universal resource that is available to anyone for a vital life. Discover a wealth of simple ways to cultivate and abundant flow of ki in your life. This offering of Ki to Health = Ki to Happiness will be used to create video content for the online version of the course. Participants will also have access to the online course once it is available.
First Date: Dates to be announced

Second Degree Reiki
Second Degree in Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki is an opportunity to deepen reiki practise and the healing that reiki brings to your life. We discover the rich use of symbols to enhance the practice and how to focus reiki in different ways, for example for mental clearing or for distant treatment. During this time of social distancing my distant reiki practice has become a much larger part of my life than previously. I have been witness to many 'miracles' of connection, providing insight into this web of energy that flows between us. Second Degree Reiki enables a deepening of this awareness.
First Date: Dates to be announced
Recurring: Friday 7-9 PM Saturday 2-4:30 PM Sunday 9:30 AM-12:00
