What's up with webinars?
For the last 18 months, Rachel Goldberg and I have been producing and publishing webinars about every 6 weeks or so. The topics are far ranging and are addressed to the Global Reiki Community. There is a Facebook page: Global Reiki Webinars. It is worth the read. I like the discussions that are happening on many different topics that concern the Reiki community.
I "met" Rachel because I asked on my Facebook page if anyone had the skills and interest to work with me on this long dreamed project of webinars. I wanted to become available to those who would not be able to come and meet me.....and to do the transition from traveling to staying more at home. I feel that we have reached this goal of mine and are now surpassing what I thought possible.
We are going to use Zoom, another webinar platform, for the pay-for-participation webinars. It is a much easier platform for the participants to be able to have open real-time discussions not only with me but with each other! Fabulous! Another improvement!
Rachel introduced me to the idea of having a live event as well! We are considering Ghost Ranch in northern New Mexico and Ronora Lodge and Retreat Center in Michigan. There natural settings underlining the theme of the global gathering: We are Sacred Earth.
One of our fundamental principles in producing the webinars was to nourish our similarities and celebrate our differences in Reiki practice. One of our similarities is, of course, being human. And hearing the call of Reiki to nourish the understanding that we are Earth.....we are not controllers of Earth or in relationship to Earth.....we are Earth.
Rachel's dream is to offer program spots to those who would like to offer a 2-3 hour event for the whole group (we envision 75 people) or for a smaller group. The offerings will be asked to be in accordance with the theme of the gathering and to support our sameness of being Reiki. Other obvious program spots are sessions of hands on Reiki, conversations with Phyllis and Rachel, and ceremony.
If you are interested in knowing more, stay tuned on the Facebook page or in the webinars. Applications for program leaders and Registration for participants will open December 31 after the Webinar.
