More about Saturday's SARA Orientation

Inaugural orientation class for the Shelter Animal Reiki Association (SARA) program will be held at Traveller's Rest Equine Elders Sanctuary (TREES) in Spotsylvania, VA on Saturday, June 20th from 10am-noon. (Additional orientation sessions will be held as the program grows.)

From Janet Dobbs, founding SARA member:

I hope that you will be able to join us. The only requirement to become a TREES/SARA volunteer is you must be at least a Reiki level one practitioner and love animals. :-)

Traveller's Rest is a founding SARA shelter/rescue. I am very happy to be helping to get this program up and running, but we need you to make it happen. The more Animal Reiki volunteers we have the more successful the program will be and the animals will thrive.

To participate in the program you will need to attend a TREES/SARA orientation. Then you will be able to volunteer at Traveller's Rest, as a SARA participant, by offering Reiki sessions to the horses. Most of the residents of TREES have been participating in the Reiki level one and two courses for over one year and just love Reiki.

Let me tell you a little bit about SARA. Some of SARA's goals are:

- To teach and foster an understanding of energy healing
- Teach an ethical approach when working with Reiki and animals
- To document the effects of Animal Reiki on individual animals as well as shelters as a whole via the first ever database of its kind

- To serve as a world-wide information and referral resource for Reiki practitioners, shelters, sanctuaries as well as other facilities that assist animals in need that wish to incorporate an Animal Reiki program
- To educate the public, shelters, sanctuaries and other animal facilities on the benefits that Animal Reiki can provide for both animals in need and the humans that care for them.

To me one of the most important ideals of SARA is we teach people how to work with Reiki and animals in an ethical way and promote the highest standard of professional Shelter Reiki programs around the world.

Please let me know if you will be attending so I can send you directions and further details. If you know of someone that might be interested in this program or interested in offering Reiki to the residents at TREES please forward this email to them.

I look forward to seeing you soon.
All my best - Janet
