In-Person Reiki Shares

Read about our Reiki Shares below:

Reiki Shares are for those new to energy work as well as those who are experienced at some level as energy practitioners looking to learn more and connect with like-minded others in-person.

Reiki Shares will give those of you who are new to energy therapies an opportunity to learn about energy, receive an energy treatment and learn to give an energy treatment. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask any questions about energy work.

For those of you trained in energy work at any level (Reiki, Quantum-Touch, Tai Chi, Donna Eden etc.), our Reiki Shares will add to your energy practice and you’ll receive an energy treatment.  Also, gain new insights about energy therapy and have your questions answered.

We’ll start with a guided meditation practice, followed by a question/answer discussion and then group tablework.

Your $5 non-refundable donation goes to charity.
