Reiki Newsletter-April 2012

Dear All,

We’ve had another awesome Reiki day at Grailville. Sorry for those who missed it! We’ve had 32 Reiki Master/teachers in the morning and more practitioners joined in the afternoon. We discussed best practices to support our students, we chanted together and we learned and practiced how to give Reiju (Reiki blessings). In the afternoon, Ginny (Virginia Le May Davis) led us thru “Reiki in the Medical field” and shared recent examples and resources. I’m sharing Ginny’s notes as an attachment. There is a lot that can be reapplied from Reiki Ray of Hopes. If anyone is interested in Reiki in Medical field, please contact Ginny directly.

We also captured agenda items for next Reiki Day: a Gong session, Hands-off Reiki, a discussion on how different religions interpret Reiki, more chanting, Professional Reiki business best practices. We also discussed possibility of an overnight Reiki retreat in late September! We had an awesome Reiki share and Reiki drumming with Reiju too.
