Join us in our creative approach to this classic Usui training.

Reiki Training Level 1 – March  14-15

Reiki Training Level 2 – March 16-17

Reiki is a practice of Energy Medicine, which was formalized in Japan but has ancient roots throughout Asia and the Middle East. Reiki energy is transferred via laying on of the hands. This Reiki training is Usui/Takata lineage; you receive a certification upon completion.

Reiki I training initiates you into the practice, and you finish as a Reiki practitioner, with an understanding of the history and philosophy of Reiki, and ready to practice on yourself and others.

Reiki II training deepens your practice, initiating you into the use and understanding of sacred Reiki symbols used to intensify energy transmission, distance heal, and work more deeply on shifting mental and emotional patterns.

We cover not only the classic teachings of these two levels of Reiki, but also incorporate other helpful techniques and practices, like working with the chakras, how to use crystals, work with affirmations, and more. The course is also unique in its use of creative art and expression (drawing, movement, writing, etc.) as a tool to help us move and understand energy.

*Students decide for themselves if they want to participate in level one or both levels. If a student already has been initiated into level one with another teacher or institution, we ask them to sit in on our level one before proceeding with level two.

About Ayur-Yoga Massage

Ayur-Yoga massage is a therapeutic bodywork technique originated from India. It stems from the fusion of Yoga (Asanas) and Ayurveda (abhyanga & herbal medicine).

The massage is given on a mattress on the floor and applied with warm oil (sesame seed oil) and herbal powder (calamus powder). Deep and penetrating strokes are combined with yoga stretches, tractions, torsions and the pressure of energetic points (marmas) to stimulate the body, eliminate tensions, to correct and realign one´s body posture. It opens the body, balances the nervous system, regulates the function of all physiological systems and helps to renew the flow of energy in the body so one can find a natural balance.
The course will give you the capacity and the understanding to do a full body treatment. The entire massage lasts up to 120 minutes but can be reduced according to one´s individual needs.

Healing House Wellness Fair

i Jul 27th No Comments by

We at the Healing House are having our monthly Wellness Fair on November the 18th. We will be featuring our therapists and teachers and offering free classes and treatments to our local community and tourist alike. We will start the day with an hour long asana practice followed by accupuncture, massage, and reflexology treatments. After a short break for lunch, our guests will have the opportunity to consult with our therapists including ayurvedic consultations. We will finish the day with Kundalini practice and a pilates series.

Our intention with this Wellness Fair is to bring new light and awareness to our local Cusquenian community so that we can share with them all that we have to offer. All Cusquenians have the opportunity to take regularly scheduled yoga and pilates free of charge, as well as receive treatments for free or for need based situations, however even with this golden opportunity, we are just not receiving the showing we would like. We hope that with this event, and continuing monthly events we can work to heal our community so in return they can heal others.

Agnihotra – Bringing New Light to Homa Therapy

i Jun 22nd No Comments by

Greetings! It is our pleasure to share with you a hidden treasure we have unlocked this past month called Agnihotra. Agnihotra is an ancient Vedic fire ceremony performed at the exact second of sunrise and sunset. It is one of the basic Homa Therapies that anyone can and everyone can do!

Although the ceremony has been lost as far as most of the world is concerned, there are communities of people all over the planet keeping the tradition alive-ourselves included.

To perform Agnihotra, you need a copper pyramid (of a specific size and shape), organic cow dung, ghee (clarified butter) organic integral rice, time coordinates for your latitude, matches and the discipline to wake up before sunrise! To assemble the fire, you take three small pieces of the dung (very important it is organic) and smear a layer of the ghee, creating a pyramid within the pyramid. You then light the dung and the ghee helps to spread the fire and keep it roaring. At the exact second of sunrise or sunset, you sing the appropriate mantra and twice you throw the rice into the fire as an offering. Afterwards, you sit with the fire and meditate until the flames and smoke burns out. Both are extremely cleansing and purifying. The fire is very powerful for the people participating, but actually, it can cleanse an area of 150 acres surrounding. That is a lot of surface space!

It all sounds nice, but how does it work?
Agnihotra works with the subtle energies of the universe, collecting and creating a magnetic field around the pyramid which neutralizes negative energies and reinforces positive energies. The sunrise and sunset times around the planet create a half sphere of energy, and when those first rays of light his the earth, there is an explosion of energy for the atoms and molecules. This subtle explosion goes into the fire and travels like a double helix twelve kilometers into the air and then back down into the pyramid until the flames die out. The idea behind this is that we work to purify the toxic world we have created, and in return the atmosphere heals us. Agnihotra also works to neutralize radiation in the earth, water and air (this has been proven with the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Russia).

This ancient Homa Therapy is also being applied to organic farming, called biodynamics. By performing the fire, the molecular and cellular structure of the soil and plant is changed, giving more nutrients to the fruit and less to the leaves, stems and roots. This ultimately leads to a greater, more bountiful yield of fruits and vegetables with increased size, flavor and texture. Performing the fire can also reduce pest problems.

The Agnihotra fire has many medicinal properties which can be utilized just by performing the fire and also with the resulting ash.

Our experience with the fire…In only two and a half short weeks, all of us participating in the fire have experienced a noticable increase in energy throughout the day, increase in overall health and well being, clarity of mind, inner peace, openness to give and receive love and a beautiful meditation every morning to start the day. The most rewarding aspect of performing this fire has not only been the change we feel within ourselves, but how we are affecting and inspiring our community members to join the fire. The more we share our experience, the more people are intrigued and inspired to ingite this positive change in their life. As the days go by, people of all ages and walks of life are coming through our door and sharing this beautiful ceremony with us.

When it comes to Agnihotra, we choose to hold the light.
