I will be interviewing Kathleen Prasad. Kathleen is the president of SARA "Shelter Animal Reiki Association". She is the author of several fantastic books. Kathleen will explain the symptoms of "compassion fatigue" and share information on what it is, as well as how we can treat it. Kathleen reminds us that Reiki is a beautiful healing tool used in helping abused animals and can also be used by the practitioners themselves to bring peace where there is sadness and anger. Reiki holds the keys to healing your heart and mind. Kathleen will share several wonderful methods that anyone can use in their daily lives. These methods can be useful to any caregiver in any situation as a tool in shifting back into wellness. She gives us information about her classes and the beautiful work she has done in the US and around the world teaching Reiki and rescuing animals. Kathleen continues to be a loving, caring, and encouraging teacher. For more information see www.animalreikisource.com

My goal is that you will gain new knowledge and insight about Reiki, as well as gain your own self-empowerment. Every day, I wish to help others live with love and compassion, thus allowing their own blessings to manifest. Our show will be about Reiki. It will cover many different aspects of Reiki, and other topics that work with Reiki. Shamanism, nutrition, self-empowerment etc.
We’ll discuss how Reiki fits in with Western medicine and other alternative healing modalities (chiropractic, massage, SVH, etc.), Reiki in hospitals, and the tremendous effect it has in regard to surgeries, pain, and its role in healing, and its value to a Reiki practitioner, How Reiki aids in healing us physically and emotionally, discussion on our LEF (Luminous energy field, and Reiki is an energy healing modality) and discuss how our energy field, vibration, and intent play such a huge role in our health, happiness, and self-empowerment.
I was born a premature baby, weighing less than 3 pounds. Doctors did not believe I would make it through the night. I did survive. I have had a grateful heart my whole life. I have always believed that happiness is a choice. While in college, I began working at a restaurant in Tacoma, Washington, which I eventually bought. I worked in that restaurant for 27 years. My years in the restaurant business gave me the opportunity to meet so many amazing people. After I sold my restaurant, I went to work as a receptionist so that I could continue to work with people. Working with people is one of my passions. It was at this time that I began learning Reiki. It all started because I am an avid animal lover. I had a beloved dog that was ill. Someone suggested I learn Reiki. That started me on my Reiki path. Reiki is my love and passion; therefore, I made giving and teaching Reiki my career.
Sharing information and/or Reiki energy with others fills my heart with joy. My accomplishments include Reiki training (with various teachers) in Tacoma and Seattle, Washington, Sedona, Arizona and in Peru. I am a Usui and Karuna Master/Teacher. I have had training in Shamanism and Serenity Vibration Healing as well. I was awarded “Best of Tacoma 2013” in the wellness category.
