Before giving, the mind of the giver is happy, while giving the mind of the giver is made peaceful, and having given, the mind of the giver is uplifted”. Buddha
A Reiki Share is a wonderful way of meeting other Reiki students, practitioners, teachers or those interested in finding out more about Reiki. The concept of a Reiki Share is for everyone attending to both give and receive Reiki healing in a supportive and peaceful environment.
We will share reiki in 2 ways. After our initial reiki discussion share we will first use the chairs to practice seated reiki practice on each other in pairs. Then in the latter part of the session we will use 1 treatment couch so we can all work on one person in rotation. I keep the reiki share groups small so this will probably be just a few people to each treatment couch. Whilst one person is laying on the couch, everyone else is giving Reiki to them. When that session has finished (5 minutes), someone else will then be treated. This rotation continues until everyone has received a treatment. It is a very powerful and healing experience!
For those who may wish to build their confidence in giving treatments or for those who have little experience of using Reiki, these Shares are a good way to build that confidence and knowledge. Reiki Practitioners and Reiki Teachers can also benefit enormously from attending Reiki Shares because as they are usually healing others it is easy to forget their own needs.
Reiki shares are an opportunity for them to receive Reiki themselves.
Reiki Shares are also a good way to meet other like-minded people and discuss experiences of using, receiving or training in Reiki.
Reiki Shares are usually held once a month and serve to be a focal point for ongoing contact and support. Participating in a Reiki Share is very beneficial to the individual and to the whole group collectively. It is an amazing experience to be part of a group, meeting together, to heal and be healed.
