What Is Animal Reiki?
Animal Reiki is the practice of promoting healing through Reiki meditation for animals and their caregivers. The Shelter Animal Reiki Association (SARA) helps caregivers and shelters provide a healing space for animals through mindful meditation practices. It can be hard for caregivers to witness the aftermath of the mistreatment of animals. Animal Reiki helps re-center the caregivers' emotions, allowing them to be present, to be grounded and to have clarity in moments of duress. The ability to set aside our personal emotions allows us to be present in the healing process of the animal we are trying to help and to be in a space of non-judgment, balance and compassion for the animal.
LEARN. GROW. LOVE.
