About the Event

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of healing and self-improvement that everyone can use.

Reiki is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

Because of the reasons above, being certified to use Reiki is tremendously beneficial for medical and therapeutic professionals, yoga and movement teachers, parents, and/or anyone whose work is to care for others.

These Reiki Certification Courses are co-taught by Manu Del Prete and Aki Hirata- Baker.

The Instructors:

Aki Hirata Baker

Aki Hirata Baker is an Empress with a spirit of the Magician and the heart of the High Priestess. Just as her natal chart suggests, she is a Phoenix who constantly re-invent herself of who she is, who she thinks she is, and who she aspires to be. Her love for mysticism and forces unseen was evident in her second grade essay, in which she proclaimed she wanted to be a Witch when she grew up. Driven by her passion for understanding powers in all things, and her struggle with depression and chronic physical ailments, Aki had studied various healing modalities such as Ayurvedic Medicine, Integral Hatha Yoga, meditation, Essential Oils, Bach & FES flower essence, Reiki and other forms of energy healing practices. Her body, mind and soul have been very happy with one another for several years though these practices.

In this current life time, she is a Flower Essence Therapist, energetic healing practitioner, Reiki master teacher, meditator, community activist, food lover, healing & spiritual guide, artist, serial business owner, urban farmer, domestic violence survivor, mother to Saya, Shintaro & San, and wife to Ronald. Her current project is MINKA brooklyn, a center for wellness & holistic living, which she co-founded with her business partners. MINKA brooklyn continues the legacy of the COMPOUND brooklyn, the COMPOUND COWORK, and Adopt-A-Farmbox; creating inclusive communities that are self-sustaining and empowering individuals to evolve to their best possible versions of themselves.

Manu Delprete

As a Reiki Master Teacher, Feng Shui practitioner and past life regression facilitator, Manu River Del Prete has devoted over three decades to exploring these boundaries. Through her teaching, coaching, and comprehensive practice, from medical intuition to life alignment or shifting, Manu integrates psychic, physical, and metaphysical energies. She assists her clients to experience an awareness that they already possess, by which greater health and wellbeing can be achieved.

Born and raised in Italy, Manu’s family origins fostered her psychic gifts, but it wasn't until her own “dark night of the soul” that she began her focused study to develop those gifts. Following her arrival in the U.S., she continued her studies with different Masters and teachers and integrated different approaches into her unique vision. The vision of an intuitive life architect, adjusting spaces with the body and integrating all aspects of life.

From space clearing to Feng Shui, from Reiki and Integrated Energy Therapy to past life regression, Manu focuses on each individual’s needs, drawing upon the energetic human field and consciousness, and the unique spiritual or epistemological connections. She draws on a lifetime of work across the spectrum of perception, connecting the healing arts with the metaphysical arts, the philosophy of Tibetan Buddhism, quantum physics and sacred geometry.

For Manu, the gentlest touch can be the most profound, dissolving the elastic boundaries that separate us from each other and from the deeper energies that compose our world, and through which we must pass to return to ourselves.
