As we come to the end of the year – which is just over a month away! – we start to reflect on the year that we have had, but most importantly, the year that is yet to come. What opportunities will wait in our future? What will be over the horizon? Well, we hope from this newsletter that there will be plenty of events and moments of connection to look forward to that will give you clarity and direction.

First of all, we have a new Reiki Morning in December, allowing you to cast your eye into the future year, set your own goals with intention, and how we can use Reiki to achieve those goals. This is an in person and online event, open to everyone including non-Reiki students.

Reiki Morning – Set your Intentions for the Coming Year – In person

December 16 @ 9:45 am – 12:45 pm £45.00

All documents needed for the Reiki Morning will be given to you on the day

There are only a few places left so be quick to book your place now!


Attend our upcoming Reiki Morning, open to everyone including non-Reiki students. Using your intention helps you to connect and to gain clarity, especially in times of uncertainty. Some people find it really difficult to connect to their intuition, and this Reiki morning will help you to realise the benefits of discipline and how easy it really is to connect to yourself. This isn’t about setting new year’s resolutions; this is more about working with a form of energy that helps you reconnect to yourself and see what you really want in your life. We will guide you through setting an intention for your goals and milestones, and how you will plan, execute your plan, and discover your strengths and weaknesses to make the path ahead a little clearer.


Reiki Morning – Set your Intentions for the  Year – Virtual Online

February 18th  @ 9:30 am – 12:30 pm £45.00

Check out these tips for coping with the darker winter months as one year comes to a close and another blooms anew.

 For some people, it is incredibly normal to feel low during the winter months. The weather starts to become gloomier with clouds and rain and cold, and the sun sets a lot sooner in the day when many people are still at work. Many try to fight this feeling, because they simply do not like it. And we often use language like ‘I feel bad’, ‘It’s not right that I feel like this’, ‘It’s wrong’. If we change some of the language round and say ‘I know I feel sad because its dark and cold, but …’. The word ‘but’ moves what you just said and moves your focus away from the negative feeling, and it gives you an opportunity to move it towards something you are looking forward to or something that you have achieved. It’s more about accepting that we don’t have to feel perfect and on top of the world all the time.


If you are a procrastinator or feel like you can’t get out of bed sometimes, have you noticed how you might tell yourself off, beat yourself up about it and tell yourself how bad you are for not getting things done and being productive? Again, it’s more about accepting sometimes that we don’t always get things done or we don’t always get out of bed. Winter is the month for rest, reserving your energy, and hibernating. The greatest tip to help yourself in this is acceptance first and, in those moments, when you feel you aren’t getting on with something or not getting out of bed, don’t think about it just do. We are very beautiful human beings who sometimes want to tell ourselves off for being bad when we probably haven’t done anything wrong. The best thing is to take an action straight away even if you just got up and brushed your teeth. It’s all about changing focus. It’s not going to be easy to get things done when all you can think about is how bad you are for not getting them done sooner.


We also have some exciting news about The Coven, a gathering created by Rachel Petheram from Catkin Flowers spanning the entirety of the year. January 2024 – November 2024


I’ve been invited to collaborate with Rachel from Catkin Flowers…


Rachel, who is also an Ambassador of YLK Mentors, has designed The Coven for those who wish to take the next step in their life – to step into your own personal power and ground yourself in moments of transformation and change. The gathering consists of 6 sessions a year, in collaboration with experts whose work is centred around supporting and empowering women.

The gathering of these sessions will focus on creating a supportive community; a space created for guidance, building confidence, and solidifying the connection you have with yourself.

It is a wonderful way to not only connect with nature, but also with ourselves. This event in 6 sessions spans the entirety of the year, with its debut event happening next year.

As a Mentor, Coach, Hypnotherapist, and Reiki Master, Yvette Karan will be joining The Coven and collaborating with Rachel as one of the visiting experts for two of the sessions.

The Coven – Reconnecting with your Confidence & Power by Rachel from Catkin Flowers



Special Spotlight – Ruth Karan | Ambassador and Tarot Reader

Sometimes as we go through life, we can feel confused and lost, especially as we come to the end of a year and winter begins. The darker months can make us feel low and it is understandable that the world and all that is going on in it starts to close around us, and our direction in life starts to become a question. With the new year coming, and new possibilities with new directions, clarity can offer a helping hand. If you want to give a gift to somebody during the giving season, or buy something just for yourself, follow the link in the header to receive a written tarot reading by Ruth Karan. These are email readings, written in the style of a letter, to help you treasure the guidance within as you take your next steps forward.


Ruth Karan is an ambassador of YLK Mentors, a Writer, Historian, Reiki Master, and Tarot Reader. Her insights and abilities have enabled a lot of our clients to gain clarity and understanding of their journey. Her passion for writing shows through all her readings and talents that she has.


Special Spotlight – Katie Pande | Ambassador and Herbalist

Sometimes hormones can play up, the winter bug or cold is passed around, and sometimes it sticks and makes us feel under the weather. Whatever the case, Katie can help with her herbs and potions – don’t worry, we are only pulling your leg – and her special talents as a herbalist to get you through the long winter nights and freezing early mornings. You don’t have to put up with the random symptoms your body is displaying or the continuous onslaught of cold and flu symptoms. Contact Katie for an appointment to find out how she can help you during this time.


Herbal medicine has a unique ability to stimulate the body’s natural healing potential rather than simply mask unpleasant symptoms; it encourages the body to heal itself, bringing back a sense of whole-body balance and harmony, connecting you to your true self. To maximise and capture the real essence and healing potential of each plant, Katie uses organic herbal extracts where possible.


Katie Pande is a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH) and a Bach Flower Registered Practitioner (BFRP). Her treatments often use a combination of both herbal and flower remedies but they can also be used as separate treatments. Herbal medicine is very physical in its treatment potential, often used to deal with clear physical symptoms and can positively support every body system. The Bach flower remedies work on a purely emotional level, targeting specific emotional states such as trauma or anxiety.


 Special Spotlight – Hattie Rees | Ambassador and Nutritionist

Have you ever noticed sometimes in the winter months, all you want to do is to eat warm and soothing foods. It can be quite normal. It’s all about that hibernation and wanting to gather energy to keep us warm and cozy. We have been on the theme of telling ourselves off in this newsletter – a lot of people do this with food. If you create an understanding with yourself about food, it can help you tremendously. If you would like to find out more about what help Hattie can offer you, click on the link above.


Hattie Rees is a Registered Associate Nutritionist with a First-class Bachelor (BSc) degree in Nutrition from the University of Leeds. She is also qualified as a Reiki practitioner.   She believes in a ‘whole-self’ approach to treatment using a combination of nutritional science and holistic teachings to improve your relationship with you, leading to an overall improved health and nutrition. Hattie works very intuitively – it’s not about shoulds or shouldn’t’s. It’s more about working intuitively with eating habits. Sometimes its about moving the mindset and not necessarily what we eat.


Take a step, just for a moment, and breathe. Then turn around, look at everything that you have done within the year, give thanks, and appreciation to everything that you have done. Smile, be happy, appreciate this moment. Give yourself a hug and a well done.


Love Yvette.
