Reiki Symposium at the NY Open Center


Description of Symposium Offerings


Universal Energy, Personal Energy: Qigong for Reiki Practitioners
With Reiki Master Janet Dagley Dagley

All Reiki practitioners are familiar with the force known as ki in Japanese and qi, or chi, in Chinese. In Reiki practice, the ki is not the practitioner's personal energy, but universal life force energy, while in qigong practice, the goal is to cultivate the practitioner's own energy field. In this active workshop, practitioners will focus on the energy within themselves, using gentle movement, breathing exercises, self-massage, meditation, and visualization to gather and cultivate personal qi. A stronger, more balanced personal energy field enables a practitioner to become a clearer, more powerful channel for Reiki energy.

Aromatherapy for Reiki Practitioners
With Reiki Master Michelle Shinagawa

This will be an exciting demonstration of how aromatherapy will benefit your Reiki sessions. Essential Oils have been used for thousands of years to balance, calm, and energize the body, mind and spirit. You will be shown specific examples for using these oils and bringing these benefits to your Reiki clients. A hands-on mini-workshop, practitioners will leave with the experience and knowledge to incorporate this powerful modality into their practices.

Healing Light: Candle Magic with Reiki
With Reiki Master Jean Bromage
Lighten up your Reiki practice using candles! Candles offer a warm and magical glow that is both relaxing and rejuvenating. Using them in our Reiki and meditation practice invites this magical presence into our sacred space. In this workshop we’ll discuss using color and scent in candles, including an overview of the chakra colors and essential oils. There will also be a candle reflection meditation. We will end with an intention setting exercise using candles. Each person will choose their own candle for this exercise (scented and unscented will be available) and take it home to experience the candle magic first hand. There is a $5 materials fee for this class.

Reiki in Cyberspace
With Reiki Masters Janet Dagley Dagley and James Rosenow

Like Reiki, the Internet can facilitate connections across space and time. Reiki is all over cyberspace – found on more than 20 million sites, and counting. But how can you sort through it all, and what can you believe? Can you get a real attunement from a web site? (No, but you can find valuable information and connect with other practitioners as well as clients.) Are the Master Certificates advertised online worth anything? (Yes, to the sellers!) Can you set up and maintain your own web site, online calendar, and e-newsletter yourself for free? (Yes! We'll show you how.)
