Wonderful testimonial from PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary facebook page

From PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary facebook page.

I hope you enjoy this post as written by Simon Donkey:

We certainly don't advertise but I can say from first hand experience that Susan Rouse is one of our dearest friends. The love and dedication that she gives us as a volunteer is remarkable...countless hours and the greatest kindness that a human can share with an animal. All animals, I think she'd even Reiki a snake! lol

In addition to countless hours at the farm, she brings her students out during an Animal Reiki class and donates a very generous portion of the tuition to the farm. In her spare time (!!??) she & Bill make incredible beeswax candles and she donated a percentage of sales in May to the farm. So, so generous!! And a beautiful, kind lady.

So I am pleased to share this for those interested. Check out her website for all her courses. I know folks drive up to Cedar Cove (just north of Cobourg) from Oakville (the lovely Julia!) because they had heard about how special Susan is. If you are sitting on the fence and thinking about learning more, give her a call, you will so enjoy talking to Susan!


Heartfelt Testimonial from a Reiki student and friend

Posted by cedarcovewellness on March 22, 2013 at 4:20 PM Comments comments (0)

I am very blessed to have met so many wonderful, caring people through teaching Reiki and energy work. Please take a couple of minutes to read this heartfelt testimonial:


About a year and a half ago, I was looking for a Reiki course because often my aging dogs would have aches and pains and giving them medication was, in my opinion, not the way to improve their lives and I had heard wonderful things about Reiki. Upon seeing Susan’s website on the internet, I contacted her and arranged to take her level one Reiki course.


Since that time, I’ve been fortunate enough to take the next two levels of Reiki, took the animal Reiki and Pendulum course from Susan. The class sizes were small, fun, friendly and enlightening. We always share a few laughs and that makes learning so much easier. Susan also has monthly practices at Cedar Cove Wellness and I’ve made many new friends and we exchange stories, ideas, giggles and Reiki.


Now, not only my animals benefited from Reiki but the dogs and cats at the local shelters, where I volunteer, are also the recipients of this wonderful gift. I see them transforming and going on to new homes with balanced, positive energy. Oh and my family and friends are also recipients.


Thank you, Susan, my teacher, my mentor and best of all, my friend. You have helped me channel my positive outlook in a more tangible way.

Hello everyone,

It's been a long winter, I can't wait for spring! I am looking forward to warmer weather as I'm sure most of you are as well. I can't wait to see the first spring chipmunk! I have had many requests to add a Advanced Reiki Practitioner course and more information about this is coming soon. Reiki Practices will go back to the second Monday of the month 7-9pm. starting in April. The Reiki practice this month will be on Sunday March 10th 1-3pm.

Here are the upcoming courses, sessions, workshops, news and events for March:

Reiki Couples Course (First Degree Reiki Level 1) Thursday March 7th 9am - 5pm Learn First Degree Reiki as a couple. Special class just for the two of you.

Axiatonal Alignment Class Friday March 15th or Saturday March 30th 9:30am-4:30pm.

Axiatonal Alignment assists us to reconnect to our Source. These Axiatonal Lines are throughout the universe, galaxies, solar system, our planet and our bodies.


Axiatonal Alignment is a treatment which involves three passes down the body. During each pass the practitioner will lightly touch the client at specific points on their body. These points, when put together, will trace out forms of sacred geometry. After a Axiatonal Alignment session, many people report feeling energized, having more focus and clarity of thought.


No pre-requisite. You will learn how to do Axiatonal Alignment on yourself and other people. We will have lots of time to practice. You will give and receive a session.This may also be done on pets from a distance or in person if the pet is very laid back. You will receive an anointment (attunement) that facilitates Axiatonal Energy.


Axiatonal Alignments are compatible with other forms of healing work. They are complementary and often take the work to a deeper level. Doing an Axiatonal at the end of a Reiki treatment or other modality is a wonderful way to end a session. http://www.cedarcovewellness.com/axiatonalalignment.htm

Cost is $144.00 Light lunch, snacks, tea, water, manual and certificate of completion included. For more information or to sign up for this class, please contact Susan Rouse 905-377-1743 or info@cedarcovewellness.com

Choosing a Reiki Master Teacher

Posted by cedarcovewellness on May 22, 2012 at 7:40 PM Comments comments (0)

I highly recommend that you speak to the Reiki Master Teacher in person or on the phone before you take any courses. It’s nice to get a sense of what the Reiki Master is like. 

1. How long has the Reiki Master been teaching?

2. Are there testimonials available? Or students you can speak to?

3. Will the Reiki Master be available for questions, support and guidance after the course?

4. Is there a Reiki Share or practice group available for you to attend? Is there a cost or is it complimentary with your Reiki course?

5. Do you receive a Reiki manual?

6. Do you receive a certificate or diploma upon completion?

7. Are the courses a reasonable amount of time? Not too short in time.

8. Does the Reiki Master know their lineage and will you receive a copy?

9. Does the Reiki Master belong to a professional association?

10. Do they carry insurance? Can they advise you where to obtain insurance and offer you advice on offering Reiki professionally? (if that’s what you want to do in the future)

11. What are the number of students in the classes? You’ll learn more in a small class.

12. Are they professional?

13. I suggest taking the Reiki course in person. Online classes may be available but you will not get in person instruction from the Reiki Master and experience receiving a Reiki session from another student.

14. What are the costs for each course, how long do they recommend in between courses and how often do they teach? Don’t be rushed into taking courses too quickly.

15. What type of Reiki do they teach? Usui (Shiki Ryoho) is the original type.

16. How much practice do you get during the class? And what do you learn?

17. How many attunements for each level?

18. Does the Reiki Master provide receipts?

19. Can you take the same course again at a discount or for no charge?

Go to the Canadian Reiki Association Website www.reiki.ca and look at the teacher evaluation forms, this will give you a good idea what to look for in the different levels of Reiki http://www.reiki.ca/application.htm

Reiki Blessings, Susan
