These spaces are sometimes called reiki gatherings or healing circles. They are open to everyone: those attuned to reiki and those who just beginning with an interest in learning more about healing. A healing circle lasts for about 2 hours. All that is needed is your presence and openness to give and receive healing.
The evening begins with brief introductions and, if there are new people, a discussion on how to give and receive. It’s simple: place the hands on the body with a healing intention and trust that you will act as a conduit for energy to flow from a universal source to the person on the couch. Rei is universal energy and ki is our individual energy. Reiki is the conscious connection between each individual and their place in the world. We are all connected.
If you enjoy the evening and feel drawn to learn more to deepen your connection and explore the subtleties of reiki, I recommend attending a reiki course, Reiki I Course
How long each person is on the couch depends on the size of the group. Healing sessions last from 10 to 15 minutes. This is a powerful experience in a group. Each person takes turns to lie on the couch and has the opportunity to ask for something particular for themselves. How much people want to share or not share of their experience is a personal choice.
Once everyone has received, we sit in a circle and offer distance healing to someone we know, or an event or concern. This is done without personal agenda. We cannot know the healing someone needs and sometimes our needs can cloud our objectivity. So we send healing with the intention that it will be used for the recipient’s highest good.
We bring the evening to a close ensuring everyone felts heard and safe, before stepping back out into the world.
I attended one of Yvonne’s Reiki evenings, I went with a curious and open mind, as I did not know what to expect. We were all total strangers but after introductions, I was put at my ease as most of the others didn’t know much more than I did about Reiki. The whole experience of giving and receiving ‘hands on’ Reiki was very comfortable and relaxing. I would definitely like to learn more and do it again! (Angela)
So – had my first Reiki experience on Monday at Yvonne’s Reiki Share. I didn’t know what to expect. She was right – I went with an open mind and that was all that was needed. It was friendly and informative and I felt the Reiki warmth! My interest is piqued so I’m going again … can recommend! (Anna)
