Presenter: Cheryl Case, Traditional Usui Reiki Master

Traditional Usui Reiki is the original version of Reiki which is a healing technique that gives practitioners four attunements. This is the major difference between Traditional Reiki and other Reiki versions. This class will explore answers to questions such as: What is attunement, how does it work, what will I feel, when do I use it, who or what can I use it on, where do I put my hands, when does it stop? Amazing stories personally witnessed since 1999 will be related and discussed giving further clarity to this amazing healing technique used in hospitals and nursing homes.

The Caribbean is one of the ethnically and culturally diverse regions of the world. Its history is unique because of the immigration of diverse peoples from all parts of the world, some as early as the 16th century. Each of these people has contributed its own religious beliefs and practices to the cultures of the region. This course examines prominent religions in the Caribbean. These include: Vodou (Voodoo), Santeria, Hinduism, Rastafari and Sephardic Judaism. Special attention will be given to their contributions to the cultural and socio-economic aspects of the region and their current influences on the United States.
