What happens when a stone is thrown into a still pond? Concentric circles emerge from the center where the pebble enters, spreading wider and wider over the water’s surface. Imagine you are at the center of your community reaching out with Reiki to individuals, groups, businesses and organizations. The stone thrown into a still pond works as an apt metaphor; through your Reiki outreach, education and practice of Reiki with those in your community, Reiki’s influence on healing and wellbeing will spread immeasurably on and on into the future.

Celebration of Reiki, Inc. is offering a new extensive workshop this fall for Reiki practitioners: Reiki Outreach Training Program. Reiki teachers Elise Brenner and Judy Bousquin, Celebration of Reiki, Inc. Executive Director and Board Chair respectively, created the comprehensive Reiki Outreach Training Program to teach Reiki practitioners and teachers how to bring Reiki into their communities. Both Elise and Judy have rooted themselves in a profound commitment for Reiki education. Reiki education not only includes teaching the public about the efficacy of Reiki practice, it is also about educating Reiki colleagues on how to deepen their own skills and knowledge of Reiki and develop the qualities of leadership needed to step out of their own circle and into the wider circumference, to communicate about Reiki in a credible and effective way.
Reiki outreach allows for the possibility of Reiki being introduced on a wider scale to businesses, wellness centers, community organizations and any other place our collective imaginations take us. Just think of the impact of Reiki inclusion in business decisions, children’s education and political campaigns. Like a pebble dropped in a pond forming concentric circles, sustained Reiki education and practice on a larger scale can influence more and more people to be involved in their own health and wellness.
