Healing Animals Through Reiki with Kathleen Prasad


Being over doing: how to meditate with your dog, and why! (Kathleen Prasad with Animal Reiki Source)

In this episode, I chat with Kathleen Prasad about her experience with Animal Reiki. 

Along with being a devoted practitioner, Kathleen is the:

-       Founder of Animal Reiki Source

-       Co-founder and president of the Shelter Animal Reiki Source (SARA)

-       Creator of the Let Animals Lead® method.

Her non-profit SARA is dedicated to teaching the Let Animals Lead® method in order to bring peace and healing to shelter animals. 

Kicking off our chat with a (much needed) guided breathing meditation, Kathleen leads us through the world of Animal Reiki.

Make sure you have your pet nearby to share in this experience!
