Dear Visitors to Eden’s Path,
The Eden’ Path campus has long been a learning center, a haven and a sanctuary – removed from the chaos of daily life. It remains so today.
With the advent of the COVID-19 virus, Eden’s Path is a fine place to “shelter in place”. But all of us need peace and centering now days. Reiki gives us the opportunity to shelter in place and to ask for the help we need. Through Reiki, we who are practitioners can share Reiki, and the help it can give, with those who need it most. Reiki allows us to do this thoughtfully, peacefully, from the safely of our own homes.
When Mikao Usui taught his first classes in Reiki healing meditation, they were live, in person events. However, with COVID-19’s ability to spread easily, we will not be giving live classes any time soon.
Although I greatly prefer live, in person classes, it seems reasonable to reconsider, and teach this work on line. Risking the health of students or their teacher, by insisting on in person classes does not make sense. And it’s not ethical to do so. Remote attunements can be redone live when the pandemic passes.
Once I sort out the practical and ethical details of teaching on line classes, I’ll have more to say on the subject. For now, I invite all of my past and present students to reach out to me about how a Reiki practitioner can deal with this crisis. I’ll also be considering how to make future classes affordable for those in need.
If you are not a Reiki student, and if now seems like a good time to pursue the study of Reiki, by all means contact me.
As a Reiki Master – Teacher, it is both a privilege and a duty to teach and help others with this work.
Be safe, stay well, stay calm, do your Reiki, meditate, pray, be blessed – and practice social distancing!
