Understanding Animals Training - Developed for Reiki Practitioners and Students (via Zoom)

Animal Reiki Practitioners are expected to understand animals as well as Reiki. Until early 2020 no recognised criteria existed for the recognition of Animal Reiki Practitioners by professional Reiki organisations and Understanding Animals was not included in many Animal Reiki training courses. However certain legislation applies to all practitioners offering therapies to animals and much additional practical and theoretical knowledge benefits the professionalism of the practitioner and the optimum response and outcome for the animal.

Friends Of Baxter Animal Care therefore offers complete Animal Reiki Practitioner training, but also additional training on Understanding Animals specifically focussing on dogs, cats and equines, for anyone who:

  • has done Animal Reiki training that didn’t include this content
  • has some experience in offering Reiki to animals, but has limited knowledge and/or no formal training on this topic.

What This Training Includes

If, when and how to approach and offer Reiki to animals in a safe way, to best earn their trust and to gain the best outcomes

Recognising, understanding and responding to animal body language, calming signals and common behaviours

Awareness of major organ and bone locations

Relevant veterinary, animal welfare and health & safety legislation / supporting guidance – what you need to know and do

This live zoom training provides much useful teaching, discussion, practical information for Reiki sessions, and questions after each section (answered as a group) to cement learnings. Suggested exercises then provide fun ways to further develop your learning after the training. 

If you are attending the Understanding Animals  workshop without taking our Animal Reiki levels 1 and 2 training is suggested that you purchase Understanding Animals: A working guide for Reiki Practitioners, a publication that Sue co-authored on this subject. This provides good reference information to support this training. You will also be  provided with a comprehensive handout and you will be sent a certificate to print out, which can be used  for evidence of 5 hours Continuing Professional Development.
