Descriptions of Sessions

To assist you in realizing your goal(s) for your session, I have created the following series of unique sessions…

Transformation Session for the Mental and Emotional Bodies
Reduces stress, brings clarity, helps connect you to your inner self and multidimensional presence.

The Transformation Session is created as a safe space in which you can relax, de-stress, and let go. It is designed to trigger your own innate connection with your inner core self – that self that is always connected to your inner power, your inner being, your higher self and its guidance, your individual spark of divine source energy. This session can help bring you to a state of mind that can help facilitate making your best choices and decisions when you are dealing with confusion and/or overwhelm, or simply when you have an important choice to make. It can also help you allow the release of anxieties, fears, worries, depression, and/or stress. It facilitates the opportunity for you to step away from these mental/emotional states that are often fueled by the “monkey mind,” so that you can see the issues you are working with in your daily life from a broader and clearer perspective.

Soul Session for the Energy Body and Multidimensional Connection
Balances and aligns your flow of life-force energy, facilitates multidimensional clarity and openness to guidance.

The Soul Session is designed to balance and align the flow of life force energy through your body and balance your chakras (energy centers). The chakra system is of primary importance in keeping your personal life force energy strong and fluid, as well as maintaining clarity and openness in your connection with your higher self, your spiritual-multidimensional guidance, your Divine essence. Most everyone on the planet is walking around with chakras that are more or less out of balance at one time or another, as the flow of energy through your chakras and throughout your body is constantly fluctuating.

The prime directive for the Soul Session can simply be alignment of the chakras, which will have benefits that are reflected in the mental, emotional, physical, and energy bodies. Or it can also be to connect you with whatever you perceive as spiritual – whether that be connecting with source energy, God, the Divine, your angels, your guides, your higher self, or perhaps even an ascended master or teacher. It may even help you connect with loved ones who have passed.

Energy-Forward Session for Coming Events
Deepens and ignites your powerful intention-setting for the success of future events.

The Energy-Forward Session is a powerful way to set your intention for the success of a future event. If you have a significant event coming on the horizon, combining your clearly set, positive intentions with the energy work of a Reiki session can literally send Reiki’s influence into the future, “pre-paving” the way for the smoothest unfolding and best possible outcome. During the session, Peter may ask you to focus on a particular vision or even an affirmation so that you, too, can take a conscious part in paving the way for the successful outcome you desire.

Radiance Session for Performing Artists, Public Speakers, and Presenters
Activates clarity, groundedness, creative energy, personal power, and connection to your inner guidance so you can perform at your best.

Having spent many years as a professional performing artist, Peter knows very well the challenges and stresses that performing artists, public speakers, and presenters face. The Radiance session is designed to assist you in bringing your best self to auditions, rehearsals, performances, presentations, and other events. To clear away the clutter in your head, and make room for your most radiant self to shine through, facilitating your ability to command the space with radiant presence, and use your talent with confidence, eloquence and skill. This session is also designed to assist with maintaining energy, stamina, excellent memory, and resilience.

Nurture Session for the Physical Body
Facilitates healing, reduces pain, supports health and well-being.

The Nurture Session is designed to assist in creating the environment for facilitating healing, reducing pain, and/or enhancing any medical or alternative healing treatment you may be undergoing. If you have an issue that is focused primarily in one area, Peter may likely focus energy to that area, but the session is essentially guided by Reiki itself; part of being a clear conduit for Reiki is trusting and allowing it to guide the healing process as it unfolds in each session. The health of our physical body reflects the health of our energy body. When personal life force energy is low or out of balance, it can manifest into dis-ease. Dis-ease usually shows up first in the energy body. If we catch any unease or dis-ease on an energetic level, the chance of healing – and avoiding more significant problems – is greater. If you are not in need of specific healing, pain reduction, or the enhancement of medical/healing treatment, the Nurture Session can assist in your continuing good health, energy maintenance, and the alignment of your subtle energy bodies which support well being at all levels.

Custom Session
Create your own session, specifically tailored to your needs, using any ideas from the above sessions or starting from scratch.

It’s about setting your intention

Of course, all of these different types of sessions (above) share somewhat similar approaches in how they are conducted. Signing up for one type of session does not mean that you won’t receive some or all of the benefits of the other sessions. This variety of sessions was created to give you options that may help clarify and set your intention for your session. Having a clear intention going into a session, and sharing that intention with me so that you and I are on the “same page” during the session, can be very powerful and beneficial in bringing out your intended result. If you’re not inclined to share specific details with me, you can share your intention in a general way.

In all sessions, I primarily work where I am guided to work by my own inner guidance and by Reiki itself. This may include all of the main Reiki points (head, shoulders, lower torso, legs, feet), or it may be focused primarily on certain areas, which can be requested by the recipient and/or will be determined as the session unfolds.

Requested Donation

Minimum requested donation for a full session: $80.00*

Sessions last at least one hour, and often go longer (up to 90 minutes or so) depending on how I am guided to work with each person.  

Sessions may be done at a distance (by telephone or Zoom) or in-person at my home studio in San Mateo, California. Occasionally, I am also available to travel to you (additional fee for travel will be added according to distance).

These sessions are guided by the energetic healing presence of Reiki and other influences. Most sessions, whether done remotely or in-person, usually begin with approximately 10-15 minutes of getting acquainted, getting settled, and discussion about intentions for the session. Then, the Anu-KA Reiki Transformation Work begins and may last from 45 to 60 minutes or so, depending on how I am guided to work with and for you. Following the work, there is usually a 10-15 minute period of integration and discussion, which may include answering your questions and/or my sharing any impressions I received during the session with you.

*If you are financially challenged and would like to request a decrease in the amount of the requested minimum donation, please feel free to contact me and tell me a little about your situation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a remote/distance Reiki session like?
In a remote session, we will talk on the phone first and I will request to know your full name and location. We’ll also talk about any issues you’d like me to focus on in the session. In some instances, I may request that you send me a photo of yourself, just as a reference for me to hold in my mind’s eye during the session. After we discuss your intentions, I’ll instruct you to lay down somewhere comfortable and quiet where there are no distractions. Once we hang up from our phone conversation, the session will begin and you may remain awake during the session, or it’s okay to doze off into a light sleep. During the session, I will work as I am guided to, which usually puts me into a deep, altered state where I see or sense your body and “work on” the areas which need attention. When the session is finished, I will call you again on the phone, and share with you my impressions from the session.
Do remote/distance sessions really work?
I understand why it may be a bit difficult, at first, to grasp, but yes, remote sessions, done with the client and practitioner in separate locations, can be very effective. In fact, some of my most effective and insightful sessions have been done from a distance. Ultimately, all points in space and time are connected. The study of “quantum entanglement” in the field of quantum physics has demonstrated how entangled particles remain connected so that actions performed on one affect the other, even when separated at great distances; in Reiki, the exchange of energy (and sometimes information) from practitioner to remote client happens within the same framework. It’s a beautiful mystery!
What is an in-person Reiki session like?
In-person sessions take place at Anu Peter’s home studio in the North Fair Oaks neighborhood of Menlo Park, California.

In an in-person session, transformative energies flow through my hands to, in, around, and through the client. The client remains fully clothed, usually laying on a comfortable treatment table under a sheet or blanket. Treatments can also be given while the client is seated. I usually play soft music during in-person sessions, which can help to deepen and enhance the client’s experience. During the session, I place my hands over or occasionally on the client’s body in a series of hand positions. These include positions around the head and shoulders, the torso, legs, and feet. Other, more specific positions may be used based on the client’s needs. Each position is held for approximately three to ten minutes depending on how much energy may be called for in each area. Sessions sometimes include sound healing, which means I may sing or hum certain tones if and how I am guided to do so.

How will I feel during and after a session?
What one experiences during a session varies somewhat from person to person. However, most recipients usually experience feelings of deep relaxation. In addition, many feel a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and surrounds them. As the energy encourages one to let go of tension, anxiety, fear or other negative feelings, a state of peace and well-being can be experienced. Some drift off to sleep or report floating outside of their bodies or have visions and other mystical experiences. At the end of the treatment, one usually feels refreshed with a more positive, balanced outlook.

The fine print
Of course, as in any modality of care (“alternative” or not), there are no guarantees that you will receive the exact results you are desiring for your session, or for that matter, any of the possible results (as mentioned in session descriptions) for each type of session. Results are different for everyone and are affected by an array of influences, including your openness and readiness for transformation, healing, and/or balance, your own expectations, your beliefs, as well as your ability to receive and perceive the effects of Reiki. It is more accurate to say Reiki balances than to say Reiki cures.

Many people who are open to energy work such as Reiki are able to receive profound benefits. Some people are skeptical, but if they are open-minded enough to consider the possibility that they can be helped in this way, they can still be helped. But, a person can refuse Reiki and not receive its benefit. Some people unknowingly cling to an illness or imbalance and/or are unable to let it go for a variety of reasons having to do with their life path and lessons, the influence of other people and other factors in their lives, etc. Ultimately, life always gives us exactly what we need for our own evolution.

The legal stuff
Complementary healing arts, such as Reiki, do not require licensing by the State of California. Anu Peter practices Reiki in compliance with California SB-577.

…For the healing hour, I immediately fell into some kind of altered state, and realized that a major change for the good was taking place…
