This past Friday, one of my dreams for the Long Beach community became a reality. The new and beautiful event space, Howl, opened their doors and their hearts to my vision of creating a space for people to learn about and experience the healing power of Reiki.
We started with focusing on our breath, letting go of our minds and bodies, and listened to what our soul had to say. We set intentions for our lives, and wrote them on a small card as a reminder.
As the class continued on, we discussed a brief history of Reiki and its origins, how it works, and how it can help us get back in touch with the “spirit” part of ourselves. The floor was open to questions, and once they were all answered, we dove into the restorative yoga practice.
As I guided the students into different restorative asanas, my assistant Toby from Shekhinah Holistic gently adjusted everyone so that they could be in the poses for 5 minutes or more. I would then visit with each person in the room, giving them 3-5 minutes of Reiki each. After sitting with each person and feeling their energy, I wrote an affirmation on the other side of their intention card for them to take home.
It was a positive evening filled with love, rest, and balance. Everyone left with a smile and an open heart. I look forward to holding space again for the community in this way…and I hope you will join us next time!
Stay tuned for the next Donation Reiki Class here!
