What is Reiki?
Reiki is a form of holistic energy work; it works on the body, mind and spirit by stimulating a person’s own natural healing abilities.

Who is Dr. Tracy?
Tracy has been working with people spiritually for 25 years. As she offered Reiki to her clients, she was drawn to become an Ordained Minister in her community of Aurora, Ontario. Tracy is a Doctor of Divinity and a Reiki Master Teacher as well as a Certified Metaphysical Practitioner with the International Metaphysical Ministry University Seminary and University of Sedona. Many students have found that their training with Rev. Dr. Tracy has deepened their spiritual practice in a profound way.

What to expect?
In this certification course, which has a home study as well as a workshop portion, you will
become a certified Usui Reiki Level 2 practitioner, able to practice the energy healing system for
yourself, and others. Animal Reiki is also covered in this fun, hands on class. Reiki Level 2
involves learning how to use the sacred symbols, and this will enable you to perform distant
Reiki, which you can send to people, animals, situations, people, anything that you would like to
help heal and improve!

Reiki Level 2 prepares the student for the more advanced Reiki Level 3 (Reiki Master Teacher),
where you will learn the sacred Reiki symbols that allow you to attune others to Reiki. Tracy’s
students will also have the ability to apply for practitioner’s insurance and membership in the
International Reiki Healing Association, once they have achieved their Reiki Level 2
Certification.

Please register well in advance, as a home study portion of the certification will be emailed to
you as soon as you register by full payment. This manual should be read over and practiced
before the workshop portion. Course also includes a private phone consultation with the Reiki
Master Teacher about a month after the class to go over your experiences and cover some final
pointers to receive your Level 2 Certificate.

Prerequisite
Reiki level 1.  Students with their Reiki Level 1 certification from other instructors are most welcome, and will be emailed a Reiki 1 manual to review so that they have the background knowledge for Reiki 2 with Rev. Dr. Tracy Cox.  Tracy’s students will also have the ability to apply for practitioner’s insurance and membership in the International Reiki Healing Association, once they have achieved their Reiki Level 2 Certification.

Restorative Yoga & Thai Massage

In Restorative Yoga, the body is fully supported with props to facilitate deeper opening. The slower pace and deep breathing that you get in the restorative class triggers the parasympathetic nervous system.  The subdued quality of restorative yoga often helps you draw attention inward and away from external events and situations of the world, helps you feel safe and nurtured.

The goal of Thai Massage is to help physically align the energies within the body.  It incorporates basic movement, stretching and compression techniques.
No experience required to take this workshop, just be dressed in comfortable clothing that you can move in. Bring a yoga mat if you have one.
