Monthly ‘Community Reiki Share’ offered in Manchester-by-the-Sea at the Manchester Community Center – on the MBTA Train line; wheelchair accessible.

Each month a local charity is designated to receive a portion of the proceeds. We are using ‘Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs’ to select which charity to team with. The first step being – Basic Physiological Needs (Air, Water, Food, Shelter.) The steps to ‘Realizing One’s Full Potential!’

(March,) Cape Ann Animal Aid (April.) And this month – SeniorCare, Inc. SeniorCare Inc. provides and coordinates services and information to elders and people with disabilities, enabling them to live independently at home or in a setting of their choice while remaining part of their community. SeniorCare, Inc. –

Let us know if you have a charity and would like to team up with us for June!

‘Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs’ – Abraham Maslow, an American psychologist noted that before a person can achieve ‘self-actualization’ (the need to be good, to be fully alive and to find meaning in life,) basic needs must first be met (food, shelter, security, a sense of belongingness.)

A portion of May’s ‘Reiki Share’ will be donated to SeniorCare, in appreciation for all they do for the community!

What is Reiki –  ‘Reiki (ray-kee) Ryoho’ is a healing method/art that began in Japan in 1922. Reiki is offered through light touch, without manipulation of tissue, and generally considered to be safe. A growing number of hospitals incorporate Reiki as part of Integrative Therapies, offering Reiki before/after surgery and in the cancer treatment setting.  While more research is needed to show effectiveness for treatment with Reiki for certain conditions, preliminary studies have demonstrated ‘decreased anxiety.’ Reiki generally creates a calming, relaxation experience for the recipient.

Dreamtime Wellness™ Reiki Shares/Clinics are offered in a ‘group setting’ as an affordable way for people to receive a Reiki Session. Monthly Reiki Shares are available ‘First Tuesdays’ at the Manchester Community Center, 40 Beach Street (Harbor Point,) Manchester-by-the-Sea. Conveniently located next to the MBTA train station. 5:15 – 8:15 pm. Monthly Reiki Clinics are offered ‘Second Wednesdays’ at Lahey Hospital Outpatient Danvers as part of the Pain Management Center’s Integrative Therapies. 480 Maple Ave. Danvers, MA. 5:30 – 7:30 pm.

  1. Thanks Joey for helping to get the word out about this fund raiser for SeniorCare, Inc. Kelly Knox, Development Officer from Senior Care hopes to be present at the ‘Reiki Share,’ so she can tell people about SeniorCare, Inc programs and answer questions people might have. Those that cannot attend can donate directly to Senior Care. For more information about senior care – Feel free to join us tomorrow night Joey and FOB. 20 minutes of Reiki can feel like a ‘power nap,’ plus it’s for a great cause. 🙂
