Reiki is a popularised Japanese modality. Now becoming more popular in the workplace as well as at therapy centres. It is a technique that involves hands on or hands hovering just above the body in a sequence of positions.
This practice of ever-increasing popularity in our often turbulent and frenetic lives is a solace and provides the mind and body a respite to re-charge. It evokes increased mental clarity, lowers stress levels and leaves those that practice it regularly in a general state of improved wellbeing. I am a trained meditation teacher through the British school of meditation and have been practicing meditation for over 20 years.
Therapeutic gardening or ‘nature connecting for wellbeing’ as I prefer to call it, is an adaptable activity that is responsive to the interests and needs of those engaged in it and one that can be used in education to improve numeracy, literacy and work skills while benefiting from working with nature.
Reiki with Acacia
After a personal experience I was drawn to Reiki and ever since I have found my connection with it to be insatiable. From a young age I think we can all recall stubbing a toe, bumping our head or knocking an elbow, the first thing our parent or loved one did was place their hand on it, rub it or hold it. Touch heals they say. Surely there lies something in that age old saying. With my roots in gardening and energy work I have for the last 20 years felt a calling into working where I can help living things be it plant, animal or person.
