Reiki is a powerful energetic healing modality that is available to everyone. A form of hands-on healing, Reiki as a practice originated in Japan that was brought to Hawaii in 1937. Reiki energy is Universal Life Force, a high vibrational energy that activates the natural healing processes of the body and restores physical and emotional well-being. Reiki Level 1 will attune you to effectively channel the Universal Life Force energy for healing and transformation. Through hands-on practice, this class will equip you to confidently practice self treatment and begin working more intimately with the vibration of Universal Love. Your healing channels will be cleared and opened.
Studying Reiki with Blue Jaguar Healing Arts + The Sacred Other is special in that our practices weave together healing modalities based on the natural principles of death + rebirth, and the balance between forces of light + dark, masculine + feminine, stillness + movement.
As shamanic Reiki Masters, we will teach you the Usui + Tibetan Reiki methods as well as connect you to complementary healing vibrations of the natural world – such as breath, sound, drumming, feathers and crystals – for deeper transformational healing. Upon completion of
Reiki Level 1, you will:
- Experience a deeper connection to your body and the natural world
- Access greater self-awareness, relaxation and soul purpose
- Understand the history of Reiki and how it relates to you
- Be able to deliver effective Reiki treatments for yourself and others, including animals.

Instructors: Stephanie Syd Yang + Scott K. Smith
Stephanie Syd Yang is a mixed race (Taiwanese, European-American), queer healer who believes that community transformation + liberation begin by first accepting where we are, who we have been and then dreaming into what can be. The medicine she offers the world is deeply rooted in her relationship to the earth, the 4 elements and the magic we co-create with them. As a healer, she weaves together shamanic and earth-based practices that are grounded in Buddhist principles of interdependence, impermanence and karma.
The core of her work focuses on the lived and inherited experiences of women of color and queer + trans* people. Her work also offers spiritual support for eating disorders, relationships + sexuality, and moving through grief + loss. The gifts she shares are grounded in Transformative Healing (which includes: Reiki, Integrated Energy Therapy, EFT, Intuitive counseling, shamanic practice, channeling and inquiry based coaching). As a registered and certified Energy Healer, she works with clients to balance the energies of their body that are rooted in trauma, limiting beliefs and negative emotions that may be creating internal resistance to a sense of wholeness, spiritual well-being and liberation.
