Reiki friends ~ Although it’s currently quiet on the political front with the recent attempts to regulate Reiki practice, regulatory plans are still in the works, and will surely appear again. When that happens, I will share updates. In the meantime, I want to spotlight another, non-political attempt to regulate Reiki and other energy healing modalities. A recent TEDx Berkeley talk by Dr. Shamini Jain was unfairly flagged. Dr. Jain was invited to speak, but was then told she could not use the words Reiki or chi in her talk. Dr. Jain is the author of the book “Healing Ourselves: Biofield Science and the Future of Health” and the founder of the Consciousness and Healing Initiative (CHI). Dr. Jain is known.
