Shamanic Reiki Focuses on Sacred Relationship with Nature: “It is the mission of The Center for Health and Healing to help our community grow and heal, restoring a sacred relationship with nature through the ancient wisdom of our indigenous ancestors."
Shamanism, which shares the teachings of indigenous cultures, has gained new currency as people seek to regain their ancestral connectedness with the natural world. Melanie Ryan, owner and founder of The Center for Health and Healing in Mount Kisco, offers semiannual trainings weaving shamanism and Reiki, and will offer a new, yearlong Shamanic Reiki program starting in 2019.
“It is the mission of The Center for Health and Healing to help our community grow and heal, restoring a sacred relationship with nature through the ancient wisdom of our indigenous ancestors,” Ryan says.
Every spring and fall, Ryan teaches Shamanic Reiki Level One, Level Two and Master Practitioner. Next year she will offer a new Yearlong Life Empowerment and Master Teacher Program. All courses fulfill the prerequisites for further shamanic studies of leadership with Llyn Roberts, founder of Shamanic Reiki Worldwide (ShamanicReikiWorldwide.com).
“Indigenous people worldwide have always had a sacred bond with nature,” she says. “Tribal beliefs and lifestyles aligned with the practices of oneness, sharing, community and healing. Villages had shamans, the medicine men and women who possess the ability to communicate with the earth and the energies of the natural world for healing the earth and humanity. We must contemplate how we have evolved so far away from this life of harmony and interconnectedness. Now is the time we must shift our mindset to a place of higher consciousness, a place of worldwide community with one another, the earth and our ancestors.”
