Reiki Second Degree Class & Buddho Enersense 2 Classe Postponed

We are assessing the impact of Covid-19 on the delivery of our Reiki Jin Kei Do classes scheduled for 2020.  The well being of our students is of paramount importance.  At this point, we are only canceling Reiki Level 2 scheduled for March 28-29, 2020, however, we will continue to monitor the situation for upcoming classes and update this site accordingly.  

To support this community’s continued learning, we will be offering our current students opportunities to gather on-line for review and Q&A, so stay tuned!

Out of an abundance of caution, Stella and I are postponing the March 28-29, 2020, Reiki Jin Kei Do Level 2 class until the situation surrounding Covid-19 improves.  We will reschedule at a later date.  Yes, we¹re disappointed, but we also feel some relief at making what we believe is a prudent decision.  This virus is a concern and your health and safety are of paramount importance to us.

We hope you are finding ways to stay grounded during this period of uncertainty.  Reiki and self care are integral to this.  In addition to self-reiki, we highly recommend the qi gong practice, Gathering Stars, which we taught in Level 1.  This will keep your body active, while settling your mind and steadying your breath.  Copy the following url into your browser to link to Gilbert Gallego¹s review of Gathering Stars: 

Buddho EnerSense 2 Postponed until 2021

BES 2 is postponed until 2021 to accommodate a change in Khandro Kunzang’s teaching schedule.  Date to be decided.
