Several long years ago, Reiki Master Teacher Zenep Yilmaz – turquoizen in emails – got a big nudge from Spirit about getting Reiki Masters together on a regular basis. She wanted to build the Reiki community here, and started with emails and small gatherings. The first one I attended was at the Panera Bread cafe in Hyde Park.
Now we’ve been meeting near the Equinoxes at Grailville for about 3 years, the gathering drawing folk from throughout the region in growing numbers. Today we had more than 35 Reiki Masters, and in the afternoon an additional 15 First and Second Degrees.
A perfect day, a variety of teachings, meditations, Reiki Shares, Reiki drumming, chanting, and much time doing Reiju – a simple and profound Reiki ritual / Attunement, practicing on each other. Now we’ll be able to spread Reiju through our communities of students.
We also found time to discuss the Catholic bishops’ mistrust of Reiki (and send Reiki to help change the situation), how to get the word out about our classes, our Facebook page, our website cincinnatireiki.ning.com, what’s going on volunteer-wise with Reiki in Cincinnati – and just plain networking.
What a great day! : >
