In our world, we experience and feel the weight of collective energy. The global and daily stressors of life surround each of us. Group Reiki is an opportunity to gather in the sacred space of the community to receive energetic healing and restoration to help find our individual and collective understanding of our lives.

These 75-minute sessions are perfect for anyone interested in experiencing Holy Fire® Reiki energy healing. Each session, co-facilitated by Veronica and Andrea, begins with a guided experience, and each person will receive a mini Reiki energy healing treatment. Afterward, participants are invited to share their experiences, ask questions, and mindfully drink tea together.

How to experience: While Reiki is known as a hands-on practice, participants who do not want touch can receive treatment hands-off (hovering). While some students might be seated for the experience, most prefer to lie down. Scroll down to read more About Reiki.

What to bring: Dress comfortably and in layers for sitting and a little mindful movement. If you like have paper and pen available to document your experience. Yoga mats and blankets will be provided but feel free to bring your own.

Training: For those interested in training in Level I Reiki later in 2023, these workshop experiences are a way to begin to learn about Western and traditional Japanese Reiki practices.

Covid Guidelines: It is up to each individual as to whether they wear a mask. Do not attend in-person if you have flu-like symptoms or have tested positive recently for covid. Please respect each other’s choices. NCMC does not take any responsibility for any pursuant illness.

Babies/toddlers: Must be held by an adult and do not need to be registered. (We ask that you go to the adjoining room if they fuss until they quiet down.)

Facility Concerns: The Center is on the second floor with no elevator or wheelchair access.


About Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese healing technique for relaxation and stress reduction that can help open up the ability to heal ourselves naturally. We are all made up of energy, and terms like chi, ki, or prana might sound familiar, and are ways to describe our life force energy. This life force energy flows through the vessels of all living beings. When our life force energy is blocked, we might experience physical, mental, and emotional symptoms. Reiki is a way to address these blocks and support our well-being and bring us back into balance. The healing experience is hands-on or hands-off (hovering) and can be experienced in-person or online.

However, Reiki is also a spiritual path and practice that brings us back home to the true self and loving self. It helps us move away from the limiting culturally-created self and into the extraordinary authentic self. This self reflects our beautiful and loving inner nature.
