Tuesday. October 6th. ‘Community Reiki Share’ in Manchester-by-the-Sea.
Join us in Supporting the Kangemi Charity and Children of Nairobi, Kenya. Having just returned from a sabbatical in Africa, it seems appropriate that this month’s Reiki Share is donating proceeds to an African charity. All are welcomed to attend to enjoy a Reiki Session while supporting this worthy cause!
This month’s choice of charities was inspired by Advanced Western and Japanese Reiki Practitioner (Komyo Okuden/3rd Degree) and FOB Suzanne Sweeney, owner of Energize Body and Mind here in Gloucester. Suzanne’s mother-in-law Prafulla Ganatraa, coordinates the Kangemi Charity in Kenya, helping to feed, clothe and educate children in an impoverished area of Nairobi.
In her efforts to help the children, Prafulla Ganatraa is also teaching them Reiki, demonstrated in this photo. Join us in helping support the wonderful work she is doing!
To Attend this Month’s Reiki Share or to Donate to the Kangemi Charity, Email info@DreamtimeWellnessc.com or Contact Suzanne Sweeney via Email -EnergizeBodyandMind@gmail.com.
You can come as an observer, to donate, join in a meditation, and/or enjoy a Reiki Session. Participate in some or all of the evening and enjoy the sense of peace, comfort and calm that Reiki provides.

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

To learn more about Reiki and other therapies offered in ‘Integrative Oncology’ (incorporating complementary therapies with conventional medicine as supportive care and symptom management,) here are some links to the National Institutes of Health/National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health – www. nccih.nih.gov and for specific articles –http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3863498/ https://nccih.nih.gov/health/reiki/introduction.htm#effects. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21998438. More rigorous study of Reiki is needed, but preliminary studies indicate that Reiki may be helpful for decreasing pain and anxiety in the cancer treatment setting.
For nine years, employed as the RN/Reiki Provider at the North Shore Medical Center (NSMC) and Mass General Hospital (MGH) Cancer Centers, patients receiving Reiki during cancer treatment reported these treatments help them “feel better,” “cope better,” and some reported “a greater sense of ‘hope.”
Private Reiki Sessions and Reiki Training are also available through Dreamtime Wellness™ (Offering Reiki in Healthcare and Hospitals Since 1999. Teaching Traditional (Western) Reiki since 2000. Teaching Japanese Komyo Reiki since 2012.)
