We learned what Reiki is and its origin. They loved saying Mikao Usui’s last name with such a fun spin, making it sound like a strong phrase used in martial arts. They said it with such conviction. Coloring and drawing was a big part of the day as well.
Drawing pictures to help us learn how to pronounce the word Reiki always proves very effective. Pictures of people, aliens, rainbows, and Reiki hands were also drawn! Giving Reiki to our lunch before we ate it was a new experience for them. I especially enjoyed giving Reiki to the trees in the park, and to the pinecones they collected on our nature walk.
The day ended with not only giving Reiki to ourselves, but exchanging with others. They especially enjoyed giving Reiki to our photographer and assistant teacher for the day, my dear husband Tim. We rounded out the day by giving Reiki to a globe for World Peace. Thank you to these amazing boys and their parents for the opportunity to share this beautiful healing modality.
