REIKI FOR KIDS

Reiki is a Japanese mindfulness practice for stress reduction and relaxation. 

Ages 12-17

This is an entry level class where kids will learn to quiet their minds in order to bring about balance throughout the mind & body.  But it is also about empowering kids to know they can help themselves feel better and using what they learn to help others. 

BENEFITS: 

 

INCREASE ATTENTION:
Helping improve attention and behavior problems by teaching tools to reduce anxiety, worry, and stress*

INCREASED GRADES:

CREATES MENTAL SPACE:
Helping kids decompress from stressors in and out of school allowing the body to relax*

INCREASED MENTAL HEALTH: 
Helping kids feel happier and more relaxed by reducing anxiety, depression, and fatigue*

INCREASED SELF-AWARENESS:
Helping to teach kids they are in charge of your emotions and behaviors

 

Here is what students have to say:

At the start, "What do you hope Reiki was not?"

  • That it's like learning in school

  • That it's boring

  • That it's going to be complicated

After 2 hours, "How do you feel?"

  • Man, I don't want to rush this

  • It's like all your worries get washed away and aren't so important

  • I am so glad I learned this now before my big meet!

At the end, "Do you think this is a class other kids should take?"

  • ABSOLUTELY!

  • DEFINITELY!

  • YES! It's a creative way to relax!

How does Focused Direction get kids interested and engaged?

We teach in a way they can connect to the material without teaching down to them. Students are encouraged to talk out their thoughts and even move because some people learn better that way.

The second half the day is making sure kids feel comfortable using Reiki though out their lives. So, just when they hit their attention threshold we practice with each other, we try out new uses and end with an experiment.

 

What does bring about balance throughout the mind & body even mean?

Imagine feeling sick, stressed, in pain, anxious or even overly excited. Now imagine a comforting blanket is wrapped around you. At first you still feel these things BUT the way you feel about them is changed. 

You are able to feel more balanced.  

With practice this blanket of Reiki helps to keep things in balance, clears your head and relaxes the body so that healing can occur quicker.

levels are lower. We have more control over our thoughts, emotions, 
and actions.
