Mindfulness

“If we learn to open our hearts, anyone, including the people who drive us crazy, can be our teachers.” ~Pema Chodron

 

Oak Learners Mindfulness programs are inclusive of the whole person, mind, body and spirit, promoting a calm, focused, alert, aware and creative state of mind contributing directly to the development of cognitive, performance and executive functioning skills.

Mindfulness is an experiential activity that can support one’s mental, emotional and spiritual health. We teach children and adults alike how to quiet their mind, be in the present moment and heal from the inside out. We believe that everyone has the potential to manifest their own goals through mindfulness practice.

Oak Learners has developed both individual and group sessions for all ages to learn about meditation, energy, and focus. Our programs include Mindfulness, Yoga, Reiki energy work, Nutrition, Mentoring, Meditation, and Life Skills classes.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is spiritual energy and when Reiki flows into someone it balances, heals and harmonizes all aspects of that person – body, mind, emotional and spiritual – promoting relaxation and a sense of well-being! Call to inquire about private Reiki sessions.

Reiki Level 1 for Children

In this workshop children will get in touch with subtle energy and learn simple methods of using Reiki. We offer a nurturing, supportive atmosphere which allows each child to explore their innate potential.

Children have a natural awareness of healing energy. They are very close to the flow of life. It is easy for them to learn Reiki. In this class we honor their unique perspectives and present Reiki in a way they can understand. An attunement will be offered during this workshop, the acceptance of which is entirely up to the child.

Children benefit from learning Reiki on many levels:

  • Reduce stress & anxiety
  • Boost their immune system
  • Improve quality of sleep
  • Increase focus in school
  • Enhance interpersonal relationships

Dates: Private and Semi-Private Classes Available. Call to schedule.
