About Reiki Energy Massage...
• Reiki is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Force Energy... a vital force which permeates all living things. It is also referred to as the Usui System of Natural Healing.
• Reiki Energy Massage uses hands-on healing. It is different from traditional massage because we use a light hand touch which causes a gentle energy movement inside the body that relaxes you physically, mentally and spiritually.
• Reiki is a vibrational energy technique that balances, harmonizes and restores your energy systems by using the energy centers in the palms of the hands which are placed gently and passively in different positions on or over the body.

About Panya Project...
The Panya Project is an example of a fully integrated Permaculture site with many exciting examples of Permaculture design in action. We offer a positive and inspiring environment to experience living in an intentional community, exploring an alternative way of life and reconnecting to a natural way of living while developing skills to be more self reliant.
As a community we are dedicated to living a more sustainable lifestyle in tune with one another and the natural world. We feel empowered and connected to our roots and the earth when we are able to feed ourselves with our own organic food, when we can create our own power using natural resources and when we can manage our land so it will be thriving for future generations. We are very passionate about sharing our knowledge and teaching others the importance of taking a stance against acts of negligence and destruction to our natural environment. We believe that we all have the ability to create the change the world so desperately needs and we believe that Panya is a great example of how you can begin to do this. Panya Project will be the perfect setting to learn about healing and loving our physical bodies, minds and spirits surrounded by the natural elements with beautiful peace and quiet.
At the Panya Project, we have two dormitory buildings, as well as a number of private rooms available – all made out of adobe bricks and bamboo. If you would like to reserve a private room (not fancy!) we are asking for an extra contribution of $100 for the course. Either way, you will be provided with a comfy place to sleep, mosquito net, mattress, sheets, blankets and pillow. Please be flexible about your sleeping space. If for some reason you would strongly prefer to be in one space or the other, please let us know, and we will try to make that happen for you. Fresh, vegetarian food will be provided throughout the course. Special dietary needs can be accommodated for, but please let us know in advance.
Course price: _________ US$310 (10,000 Baht) per student
This price includes the training manuals, all meals and a place to stay for the duration of the course. We ask all registrants to make a deposit of US$100 to secure your spot and the remaining fees (US$ 210) be paid in cash on arrival.
There are limited spaces available so be sure to secure your spot asap to avoid dissapointment.
We like to be as transparent as possible with our finances, as an example to other projects and to be open and honest with our visitors, who each contribute so much to the building and maintenance of our farm. Panya is funded through the support of our volunteers, who each
contribute to food and accommodation costs through a weekly payment. This helps us break even on the cost of having a short-term community on site. Our bigger projects, maintenance systems and financial support of our managers is gained through the courses we run.
Please Note: In the unlikely event of us canceling the course your deposit will be refunded in full, additionally we will not be held responsible for any financial losses accrued. The closing dates for registering for the course is the 15th October 2014. Should you cancel after this date your deposit becomes non-refundable. We will accept late bookings if there is space available.
