Reiki Reboot with Rhianna

Saturday, June 8th from 1:00 – 4:00pm at 57 Park Ave, Poughkeepsie NY 12603. Fee: $55

Over time, if we don’t work with the Reiki energy on a regular basis, our ability to channel this miraculous energy lessens. Your attunement never goes away, but if not worked, the channel begins to close back up. Our Reiki channel needs to be exercised to remain strong, and this is the perfect way to jump start that process. Open to all levels of attunement.
