Reiki is Japanese for “spiritually guided life force energy”. But what does that even mean? The best way to discover Reiki is to experience it, and our shares are the perfect way to do that. Danielle Stimpson’s expert guidance allows you to connect with and share Reiki energy even if you never have before. It’s also a great way for those experienced in Reiki to keep in practice and get some TLC. Our shares are based on a Japanese practice called Shûchû, where the energy of a session is amplified by having several people giving Reiki all at once. Everyone gets a session and leaves feeling uplifted and refreshed, no physical touch required!
“Danielle’s reiki share is an incredibly kind, restorative, welcoming gift and I look forward to not only attending more in the future, but also bringing along a friend or two. I wish everyone could experience this.” – Raquel S.
All shares are by contribution. Please be punctual and RSVP as space is limited. Reiki Shares take place on the first Tuesday of every month from 6:30-8:30 and the third Thursday from 5:30-7:30, with additional weekday and weekend shares announced from time to time.
Sound Healing Meditation with Daphne & Heather Gilstrap
Experience the deeply relaxing sounds of crystal & Tibetan singing bowls with other select instruments played live in an intimate group setting during this hour-plus long meditation. Nothing is required of you-you’ll simply lay comfortably and experience the transcendent vibrations of healing sound. This blissful event usually takes place on select Sunday evenings. You will leave feeling restored and at peace, ready to take on the week ahead. Feel free to bring your favorite crystals or altar pieces to charge them up in the great energy!
Learn Reiki Philadelphia is honored to host multiple Reiki lineages & styles. Usui / Holy Fire Reiki was introduced about three years ago by the International Center for Reiki Training (ICRT). This method combines the core concepts of Traditional Usui Reiki some additions. For example, less emphasis is places on the teacher, favoring a more personal connection to Reiki as one’s true teacher and guide.
Usui/Holy Fire is perfect for someone just beginning their reiki journey and is a great addition for those already trained in Reiki who seek to add strength and depth to their current practice. Grads of this class can continue to study in the Holy Fire lineage or the Traditional Usui classes held here at Learn Reiki Philadelphia. No matter which style you choose, you will begin a lifelong rewarding connection to the energy of All that Is.

Thai massage is a combination of energy work, compression, stretching, and movement. Join our Thai massage instructor Vanessa Hazzard to learn about-and experience-Thai for yourself! The Thai practitioner uses hands, feet, elbows, and knees to apply the therapeutic techniques. The application of Thai massage is rhythmic and meditative and your clients may feel both relaxed and rejuvenated! In this workshop, you will be led through a partner yoga sequence, and Thai massage. This workshop is friendly for all levels. No previous yoga or massage experience is necessary! Come by yourself or with a friend! Thai massage is applied fully clothed on a mat, so dress comfortably. You’ll have a great time and leave feeling sooo much better!
