Outcomes from 2013 Reiki Conference
The 2013 Celebration of Reiki Conference in Watertown, Massachusetts generated vitality, energy, and excitement in our Reiki community. That strength was palpable in the smiles and hugs that spread contagiously through the crowd all day long. As one attendee remarked, “It was a big, warm hug that you didn’t want to end.”
Conference-goers left with valuable insights, connections and information from Conference presenters, panelists and workshops. Attendees shared their takeaways:
A very practical outcome from the May 2013 Conference is the initiative to form special interest working groups related to Reiki outreach and advocacy. Before our next conference, Reiki practitioners will connect around their mutual interests (for example, bringing Reiki to people in grief) through a forum on this website. They will meet face-to-face during the after-lunch working groups hour at the April 27, 2014 conference.
From the feedback attendees gave on the evaluation forms, the conference planning committee realized the next conference must feature more open time for new Reiki friends and colleagues to talk and share information and resources informally.
We need not function as Reiki islands, separate and isolated. At the Celebration of Reiki Conference, we fully experienced the power, potential, and affirming spirit of our vital Reiki community.
