Blessing for the Animals Day, A Free Wellness Event for Your Pet’s Health
FALL CITY, Wash. — Rose De Dan, a Pampamesayoq (Earth Steward) and mesa carrier in the Peruvian Q’ero shamanic tradition and owner of Wild Reiki and Shamanic Healing LLC, will offer blessings to animals on Sunday, September 14, 2008, during the Blessings for the Animals Day at Heavenly Spa, a therapeutic canine hydrotherapy spa located in Fall City, Washington. All animals are welcome to the event, which runs from 12pm to 4pm. The series of group Blessing Ceremonies begin at 2pm and will also include representatives from Native American, Christian, Buddhist, and Hindi faiths.
De Dan says, “Animals who share in our lives also share in the energy of all of the sorrows, frustrations, and challenges that we face and can be knocked off balance mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually, resulting in less quality of life. A blessing for the animals promotes wellness and helps to reconnect animals to the natural world, reuniting them with the larger circle of life.” If a companion animal is deceased or unable to attend, people are encouraged to bring a photograph.
Blessings for the Animals Day is free. Between 12pm and 4pm, people and pets can visit booths showcasing holistic health practitioners offering information and products. From her booth, De Dan will also be offering free individual blessings to animal companions. Copies of her popular new book, “Tails of a Healer: Animals, Reiki and Shamanism,” will also be available for sale.
Beginning in 1996, De Dan was an early pioneer in promoting the need for alternative healing for animals. De Dan is an animal communicator, Reiki Master Teacher, and author. She offers sessions and ceremonies for humans and animals, and teaches classes in Seattle. De Dan received her Karpays (transmissions of power) directly from Don Manual Quispe, Q’ero elder and Altomesayoq. Don Manuel was considered to be one of the last master shamans from the unbroken Q’ero shamanic lineage.
