Foundational practices
for everyday life

Almost every day we hear about energy techniques like Reiki, shamanism, quantum healing, or mindfulness,
all aiming to be in harmony with life. Most of them have similar foundational practices which can be
applied in our daily lives for guidance and healing.

This 4-part evening series offers an opportunity to understand (and revisit) the basics of energy work, to build your own tool kit and to integrate it into your daily life. No previous knowledge or experience is required, everyone is welcome to join. Absolute beginners and advanced practitioners alike will find something to pique their curiosity.
