Reiki for kids
The program Katherine Fee uses to teach Reiki to children is simple and fun. She presents Reiki in a way that Kids can understand by using stories, songs and art to teach the fundamentals of Reiki. Throughout the day, they will experience Reiki through play, music, art, games and meditations designed for children.
We’ll get creative by using natural items for our crafts. Flowers, seeds, sticks, grasses, rocks and other treasures are lots of fun to work with!
The focus will be on connecting with horses as intelligent and sensitive beings. Kids will learn how horses communicate and how we can ‘read’ their body language to understand their intentions. Each child will have an opportunity to develop a relationship with a horse in a safe and controlled environment. Grooming, leading and horse care will be taught throughout the 5 days. Our time with horses will not involve riding, and no horse experience is necessary. Closed toes shoes required.
Shelter and Shade in the Barn
Breaks and crafts will be held in the barn.
Make new friends
Get to know the horses at the farm during supervised horse periods. All 4 horses are gentle and calm.
We'll have fun exploring and getting exercise on 85 acres of trails, forest and fields.
Horses Love Reiki
Practice your Reiki etiquette and see what if feels like to share it with horses!
Enter the magical world of fairies and dragons during our forest time. Katherine will guide your children through stories and games to engage their imagination and respect for our natural world.
Wherever we are on the farm, we can always see or hear the horses. The remind us to stay present in the moment, breathe deeply and enjoy every blessing.
Love & Respect for the Environment
Campers will learn about protecting and respecting Mother Earth through stories, games, songs, meditations and crafts.
What is Reiki?
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy." It is a free gift available to all of us at any time.
Children will learn simple methods of using Reiki in their everyday life. They learn self‑care and self‑reliance as they use the energy to help themselves wherever they are, at any time. They also learn valuable lessons in compassion by being able to give healing energy to family, friends and pets as they instinctively lay their hands on those that they want to help. The teachings will help your child to take an active part in their own health and well‑being.
Reiki will be practiced on each of the five days. Attend 3 days to have the option of a certified Reiki attunement and certificate.
