Reiki II with Pat Venter
Posted Feb 17 2019 03:00:00am

Saturday, February 23 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, and Sunday, February 24 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM

This class is for students who completed the Reiki Plus More, featuring Reiki Level I with an introduction to Reiki Level II with Pat Venter.

This is an intensive class that focuses on more practice and less theory; however, ethics and Reiki will be one of the topics for discussion. Questions and answers about how to, when to, what and why (where relevant) will be interwoven throughout the class. The agenda includes, but is not limited to, Reiki Level II attunement, a review of Reiki I identifying differences between Reiki I and II, meeting spirit guides, entertaining questions about one's practice (trepidations, if any), teaching/practice channeling of the ki energy, the three Reiki II symbols (to increase power, emotional healing, absentee healing) including long-distance healing techniques, visualization exercise(s)/meditation (more practice of healing self and others).

Demonstrations and practice will apply.

Suggested donation for course: $70.00. Proceeds will benefit Kurukulla Center.

For more information and to register please email us at reiki@kurukulla.org by Wednesday, February 20.

Requested donation is $70. The proceeds will benefit the Center

Children's Program with Geshe Tenley: Courage
Posted Feb 03 2019 12:00:00pm

Saturday, March 2 from 10:00 to 11:30 am

We are pleased to once again invite families with children from infants to teens to join Geshe Tenley and facilitators for a family-friendly Dharma teaching on Saturday, March 2. The gathering will also include games, crafts, and short mindfulness exercises.

We will focus the teaching and activities on courage, the seventh and final foundation of the Seven Foundations for Happiness and Peace as taught by Lama Zopa Rinpoche in the book "Joyful Parents, Successful Children". The Seven Foundations represent Buddhist values that include kindness, rejoicing, patience, forgiveness, apologizing, contentment and courage. We will have more copies of the book available this time and will read brief excerpts during our gathering.

Please RSVP via email to kids@kurukulla.org if you would like to attend (this is very helpful for our planning). We are also looking for volunteers to bring snacks and drinks, read a book to the children, etc.

Family-friendly teachings are being scheduled on a quarterly basis this year. We sincerely hope as many families as possible will be able to join in March.

About the Series

If you have ever wondered "Why is my child acting like this?", "Why is parenting so hard?", or "How can I help my children feel content?", then this series is for you.

Let's be honest - there is no such thing as a perfect parent. You will never have all the right answers or always do the perfect thing for your child, but you can strengthen your skills and capacity to meet your child's emotional needs. A strong social and emotional foundation in the early childhood years is key to lifelong success.

Make a commitment in the new year to reflect on your relationship with your child, and explore new perspectives for interpreting your child's behavior and your personal reactions to their behaviors. Through reflection, observation, and support, group participants are encouraged to cultivate greater wisdom in interaction with their children. With more wisdom, parents are naturally inclined to practice more compassion, and thus kindness, with themselves and their children.

This secular series is supported by a Circle of Security Parenting™ facilitator, and the format may include short videos, handouts, discussion, gentle movement, and meditation. Our goal is to create a harmonious and secure setting which encourages all participants to reflect and share, however, there are no requirements for specific style of participation.
