Reiki Newsletter-April 2013

Dear friends,


I was talking to a friend of mine and she said “Oh, I was at Frans’ public talk last year, I’ll probably skip this year”. That reminded me that the public talk is not only about the knowledge of Reiki (well, that too) but it’s about the energy. In fact, if you’ve been to the talk last year, it’s even better because now that you’ve heard it before, you can take your mind out of it and you can focus on the energy part. It’s not only what Frans says but it’s amazing just to observe how he can be absorbed in Reiki , “be Reiki” and share it with the whole room, without moving his finger.

Having said that none of Frans’s talks or classes are the same, that’s why people keep repeating the Shinpiden Reiki Master class over and over again. This will be my 4th! The talks are always very informative, fun and experiential. As Frans deepens his own practice, which is a source of inspiration for any Reiki teacher, his teachings evolve. He contagiously helps his students evolve.

Public Talk 2012- with Sundar (my dear friend and co-organizer of Shinpiden class and Frans)

When in Cincinnati, Frans will give private teachings and sessions. He has only 1 spot left: Thursday April 11th at 10am. If you’d like to be the lucky one, just let me know.

Also, we’re getting ready for the next Reiki Day in fall already. Watch out for a survey that you’ll receive from me. We’d better understand your needs, what you’d like to see in the agenda and how can we make the next Reiki Day the best :-)

Reiki hugs,
Love & Light,

Reiki Newsletter- March 2013

Dear friends,

It’s been an exciting month of teaching Reiki to raise funds to support my fund raising project: Half the Sky. Did you know that there is an exhibit at Freedom Center featuring the Half the Sky project? I’ll be there in a private event next week (which is a total coincidence - oh, of course there are no coincidences), having breakfast with our CEO and touring the exhibit :-)  Can’t wait!

Did I tell you that I raised over $1500 for one of the Half the Sky projects, Edna’s Maternity Hospital at Somalia? Deep gratitude to everyone coming to the classes and making individual donations! You rock!

Hold tight..Reiki excitement continues!!!

Next weekend is Reiki Day on Sunday March 10th at Grailville. Cincinnati Reiki community meets twice a year to share, learn and grow together as a community. Morning session is for Reiki Master/Teachers from 9:30 A.M until 12:30 P.M; the afternoon session is for all Reiki practitioners from 1:30 P.M until 5:00 P.M. Day long events include deep dive into Reiki symbols and deep dive into Reiki principles, Reiki Share, energy experiences, Reiki drumming and Reiju (Reiki blessings). Don’t miss this change to meet with like minded practitioners, to learn from each other and have fun. Hope to see you all there!

Excitement will continue in April!

Frans Stiene is coming in April for a Shinpiden class and while he’s here, he’ll graciously offer a free Public talk on Japanese Art of Reiki at the New Thought Unity Center. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet Frans (as you know he’s my Reiki teacher and he is coming from Australia). Mark Thursday April 11th 7pm!
