Virtual Reiki Shares:  Spring/Summer 2021

Read about our virtual Reiki Shares below:

Virtual 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 through Zoom.

To maintain social distancing guidelines, regular in-person Reiki Shares are not a safe option during this time.  Therefore, we’re offering our Share’s in a virtual format (we’ll see what happens after September).  There’s no charge to attend but you must be registered to receive the zoom link.

Virtual Reiki Shares will give those of you who are new to energy therapies an opportunity to learn the basics to give an energy treatment to yourself, those in your household as well as learn to direct energy at a distance. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask any questions about energy work and connect with like-minded folks.

For those of you trained in energy work at any level (Reiki, Quantum-Touch, Tai Chi, Donna Eden etc.), our Shares will revitalize your energy practice at home by honing your skills working on yourself, others in your household as well as loved ones and strangers from around the world.  Also, gain new insights about energy therapy and have your questions answered.

We’ll start each with a guided meditation, a round of self treatment and a guided distance healing session to benefit those not in your presence.

Please Note:  If you’ve not been to an in-person or virtual Reiki Share at Relax4Life before, please register using the “Register” button to the left.  You’ll receive an email confirmation with the Zoom link.  If you only RSVP through Meetup, you won’t receive the Zoom link.

If you’ve been to one of our Shares before, simply send an email ( notifying us of your desire to attend and you’ll receive an email confirming your registration and the Zoom link. You may also register by phone at: 847-842-1752.
