Rev. Sheoli Makara, M.A., has been practicing Reiki since 1992 and received her masters degree in 1995. In 1994 Sheoli opened a Reiki clinic with Reiki Master, Laura Sheehan in Mill Valley, California. This clinic gave level I &II practitioners an opportunity to work on clients consistantly, honing their skills and broadening their experience. The clinic also gave clients who otherwise could not afford traditional and/or naturalpathic medical attention an opportunity to benefit through Reiki touch.
In 1996 Sheoli moved to Mount Shasta, California to expand her spiritual awakening. She opened an office and Reiki treatment center where she also taught Reiki level I &II. During her first year in Mount Shasta her Awakening In Paradise Retreats were born. Awakening In Paradise Retreats
In 2000 Sheoli moved to Hawaii where she offers week long retreats and continues to practice and teach Reiki. Sheoli has continued to grow spiritually and intuitively through her near daily contact with the dolphins and was inspired to incorporate the energy of Reiki with that of the dolphins.
In 2002, Sheoli developed Reiki retreats for people from around the world who were guided to learn Reiki and experience the dolphins and Hawaiian sacred sanctuaries at the same time. Recently, Reiki Masters have become attracted to Awakening In Paradise Retreats as a place to deepen their spiritual awareness, receive attunements and experience the dolphins, Pele's volcano, and the magical above and under water wonderlands.
The retreat format is similar to the already well established retreats.
The only difference is the addition of the Reiki classes for Level I & II students and the Reiki masters' course attunements and focus.
Recommended for doctors, nurses, body workers, parents teachers and all those interested in the gentle yet powerfully beneficial results of Reiki.
