What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. (as defined by International Center for Reiki Training)

The true beauty of Reiki is that the practitioner is simply a guide to channel the Universal Life Energy to the recipient; allowing the recipient's own mind, body and spirit to use where ever it is most needed.

The description of Reiki Circle says "Give & Receive". 
Do I have to know how to do Reiki (be Reiki-attuned) to attend?

No, Circles are for everyone regardless of any past Reiki experience.  It's a great way to experience Reiki first hand.  Those attuned share their gift, but everyone receives, including the givers!

Do I have to stay the whole time?

No, you may leave when you need to but I do request that you arrive on time (no later than 30 minutes beyond scheduled start time).  Anyone needing to leave early will be the 1st to receive.  Then you may exit when needed.  This arrangement allows plenty of time for everyone to share their journey and to receive 20 minutes of Reiki with minimal disruption.
