Reiki, a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation, also promotes healing. George Yeager, a Certified Reiki Master Teacher, will explain how Reiki is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy flows through. If one's life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress. If our life force energy is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Begin your journey to self-healing. From 1 to 2:30 pm.
