I had been looking forward to the 2017 Celebration of Reiki Conference for quite some time and once there, it exceeded all of my expectations.
In 2012, I took Reiki 1 and Reiki 2 courses and had incorporated Reiki into my life mainly as a self-care practice. However, I had fallen out of this daily self-practice about a year ago. The 2017 Reiki conference (my first one!) felt like a profound "re-awakening" of the Reiki energy inside of me.
And then…. Bam!! Frans Stiene!!! Wow. His talk was mind-blowing and soul igniting for me. I felt as if I was receiving a Reiki healing from him, as well as from all of the powerful and beautiful Reiki practitioners around me. I had never heard or taken in the Reiki precepts in such a deep way. I am so grateful. From Frans' talk, I continued to take in and savor the rest of the day and learned so much. Yet the learning was not just "in the mind," but also in my spirit and body and deep in my cells.
Lastly, the conclusion of the conference day with the Medicine Buddha Chant was a highlight for me and continues to resonate within me. I very much look forward to next year's Celebration of Reiki Conference 2018!! I look forward to spending more time with this "tribe" of great, bright lights. Much peace and love to you all.
