What You'll Get
Modern minds spend their time overstuffed, worrying about work, paining over personal concerns, and remembering not to commit arson. Cast out your worldly worries with today's Groupon: for $99, you get an eight-hour level one reiki training course at Fern Life Center in Issaquah (a $205 value).
A Japanese technique focused on stress reduction and relaxation, reiki promotes healing through enervating the ki ––or life-force energy––contained within each individual. Brain-weary novices and experienced mind melders alike can locate and manipulate their unseen energy in the class, which promotes general health, positive energy, and a feeling of superiority over fast-thinking cell phones. Through a combination of lecture and hands-on practice, the reiki level-one class leads students through the reiki hand positions, instructing them to clear the energy field of negative influences and reducing unwanted habits through self- and distance healing. Reiki students also subdue subconscious ailments and promote inner peace through meditation, creating significantly less mess than methods involving splatter art.
Run by advanced registered nurse practitioner and integrative medical provider Keesha Ewers, Fern Life encourages the principles of ayurvedic, modern Western, and functional medicine to bring the body back to its happiest and most smiley state. Providing a sacred space for chakras to align and bodies to detoxify, Fern Life is a great place to retreat from a modern world of deadlines, constant contact, and auto-tuned traffic noises.
