|06:57 pm - Ok I'm open to many a things but this is just redonkulous|
Someone posted to customer sucks about
a guy at a newage shop getting prosecuted for "fairy dusting" two people and them accusing him of assault. And he was "forced" to plead guilty.
This of course has little to do with that, but this shop in Virginia has various new age classes.
Including stuff like Witchcraft 101.
So I looked at thier calendar and noticed something.
Most of the classes have fees. which is all fine. You can sign up for this 13 session course on witchcraft for $130. I understand that things cost money and people should be compensated.
But there are two courses listed. Well technically 3 but one doesn't have a price listed.
Basically a 5 hour session on Reiki. haven't looked into exactly what it involve but you can apparently become a "Certified Reiki I Practioner" by attending a 5 hour seminar.
Here's the thing. The cost for the Reiki II and Reiki II classes?
$255 and $355.Each of the courses is 5 hours long.
It seams a bit excessive.... Can any of the more metaphysical people on my FL explain why these courses would be so excessive?
Other then you know trying to make a buck.
There is a significant amount of work on the part of the instructor to do the Reiki thing. It's essentially what amounts to a private magic download network, with energy boosts for members. It takes some work to get someone hooked up to be able to take it (and of course some people don't react well to it).
I got attuned by an itinerant friend of mine who disliked the "making a buck" and adware (yes, metaphysical adware!) aspects of it, and attuned me in a typically chaotic and odd way.
