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.

Volunteer Reiki Practitioners Needed at Life with Cancer

Life with Cancer is an organization that provides education and support to cancer patients and their families/friends, free of charge and regardless of where they are being treated. We are proud to report that we have had an active reiki program for the past 15 years. It is through the efforts of our volunteer Reiki practitioners that this program is possible. So many of our clients report the benefits receive through the free reiki treatments they receive at Life with Cancer.

We are now looking for additional practitioners to add to our volunteer list. Our Reiki appointments are held  at the Life with Cancer Family Center, 8411 Pennell Street, Fairfax Virginia (check us out at www.lifewithcancer.org).

We offer individual Reiki appointments to cancer patients, survivors and their family members on the2nd Monday and 4th Wednesday of each month at 6:30 and 7:30pm. Each appointment lasts approximately 50 minute and 7 appointments are scheduled for each time slot.  That means that we need 7 Reiki practitioners each evening.

Requirements for volunteer Reiki practitioners:
