REMEMBRANCE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Someone who was a very special person in our Reiki community passed away on Wednesday, July 17, 2013.  John Onacilla was a quiet presence amongst us and touched the lives of many.  He went about his good work without fanfare, supporting people in their time of need and sharing the gift of Reiki whenever appropriate.

INFORMATION ON RECENT BOARD MEETING OF
 NJ MASSAGE AND BODYWORK THERAPY
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is  follow up to the separate mailing after the last newsletter that went out to you regarding Reiki and the Board of NJ Massage and Bodywork Therapy.  Susan Andrews, a Nurse Practitioner and a Reiki Master and Practitioner for the Visiting Nurse Association Health Group Hospice, attended this meeting and shared with me her thoughts from the session.  Simply put the clarity she sought was not forthcoming and was told that there may be better clarification at the September meeting. 

A handout was passed out which stated:  A person who provides an "energy therapy" that involves touching a client in any way is engaged in massage and body work therapy and must obtain a license from the Board.

It was brought up at the meeting this was in contradiction to the public minutes of September 26, 2012 which states very clearly that: 

The Board reviewed a letter from Douglas Schon which indicates that Mr. Schon is a certified Reiki Practitioner and Reiki Master(which means Mr. Schon is qualified to teach Reiki in New Jersey). Mr. Schon is asking if he needs a license to practice Reiki in New Jersey. The Board will notify Mr. Schon that he if he is solely practicing Reiki, he is not required to apply for a massage and bodywork therapy license. 

 

They did not stand by this.  They did not want to respond to it and apparently needed to talk about this in a closed session. They indicated that hopefully there will be more clarification at their September meeting.

 

To what extent this is an interpretation that the Board can make independently of the legislature I do not know.  But after the September meeting we will hopefully know where to focus our attention and to whom we need to address our concerns.

Beginning Reiki, Beginning Healing 

NEW Kindle Book

by FRANS STIENE & BRONWEN STIENE

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Beginning Reiki, Beginning Healing - just US $2.99

 

Discover how to put the system of Reiki into practical use for healing yourself, and consequently your communities, and the wider world around you. Beginning Reiki, Beginning Healing , focuses on filtering the Reiki teachings through the Reiki precepts. It takes the line "For Today Only" and uses methods of storytelling, teachings, contemplation and down-to-earth practice to find out why these three words give the system of Reiki such a powerful base to work from.

 

This is an excellent book for beginners through to experienced practitioners.

 

If your interest is in getting back to what was taught in Japan before it hit the West in 1938, eventually becoming associated with the new age movement - then you've come to the right place! We seek to remind you that the system of Reiki is a simple, yet profound, practice steeped in ancient Japanese heritage, developed to lead you, and those whose lives you touch, to spiritual freedom.

 

Beginning Reiki, Beginning Healing is a concise 42 pages in length and is certain to motivate you!

Lessons from Swiss Chocolate on Animal Reiki  

By Kathleen Prasad

 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hmmm, chocolate and Reiki for animals...related? I say yes!

I had the distinct pleasure of visiting Switzerland this past May. As I ate my way through every chocolatier in the Lake Geneva district, you may have thought wow all she wants to do is eat chocolate. Well, yes perhaps that is true, however I'm here to tell you that I was also doing very important research on animal Reiki!


To me, a delicious Swiss chocolate bar is the perfect metaphor for how we can deepen our animal Reiki practice. How? Well there are many aspects to our enjoyment of an excellent chocolate bar that can give us hints about how we should aspire to be when we are with the animals and Reiki! You see, they should both be transcendent experiences that bring us into the present moment.
