Reiki friends ~
Do you ever feel alone out there? Like you’re practicing in the wilderness with no one to help you? I want to share something with you. For a long time after I became a Reiki practitioner, I felt like I was alone in the wilderness with no one to bounce ideas off… no one to ask questions to… no one to share experiences with…

Yes, there were other Reiki practitioners in my area, but truthfully, there was more competition than cooperation back then. Everyone wanted to have an edge and appear more special than the others. They all wanted to have their own following, so none of us ever got together and shared.

I desperately wanted a unified Reiki community, so I created the Central New York Reiki Association and invited all of the Reiki practitioners in the area to join me. That was 10 years ago, and I’m happy to say that the CNYRA has developed into a beautiful, strong group of practitioners who work together, learn from each other, and support each other. We get together for Reiki circles, we have a private facebook page where we can share and discuss Reiki related topics, and we’re non-competitive. In fact, we actively lift each other up! So, if you’re a Reiki practitioner who is craving a supportive community, I invite you to join us.
PS- You don’t have to live in the Central NY area to join!
