A Conscious Community Lecture sponsored by the A.R.E. Bookstore & Gift Shop.

Reiki is one form of energy work that is popular and very effective with providing healing through encouraging deep relaxation. It is a hands-on process that anyone can learn to do for themselves and for others. While Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others. Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki system of natural healing, recommended that one practice certain simple ethical ideals to promote peace and harmony, which are nearly universal across all cultures.

Just for today (and each day) those IDEALS are:

  • Giving thanks for many blessings
  • Not being angry
  • Doing work honestly
  • Being kind to all beings

USING REIKI WITHIN THE COMMUNITY will explore how one becomes attuned to Reiki by taking classes with a certified Reiki master and how one uses this energy work for themselves and others.

There will also be a brief Reiki Circle (or Reiki Share) giving you the opportunity to experience this energy healing.



Come early to ensure your seat!
