Winter Newsletter: Sun Rising Reiki receives 2019 Best of Amherst Award!

Updated: Jul 28, 2022

Dear, Dear People,

First off, I feel so much gratitude for all the people who nominated my Reiki practice for the Best of Amherst Award this last Fall! The last four years I have been on an amazing ride that has taken me down such wonderful roads, many I would never have imagined. I feel immense gratitude each day to have the opportunities I have to share Reiki in so many different places, and with so many wonderful folks.

In recent years, Reiki has brought me into the community to nursing homes, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and assisted living facilities. I have witnessed Reiki help those living with dementia, cancer, illness, and injuries. I've also shared Reiki with people receiving hospice care, and many living with anxiety, stress, grief and loneliness. I've felt again and again, the calm, soothing, and restorative benefit Reiki can provide people, including their families. In the last year I saw more university students; many of them welcomed the chance to connect with their bodies in a larger sense, and not just from a place in their heads. They often found that consecutive sessions were very beneficial too. Sometimes new insights were gained with each session, or new awarenesses became clearer over time. Reiki can really help with the desire to find stillness from the constant noise of our minds. The deep relaxed state most people experience after an hour Reiki session encourages more balance throughout your entire system. Among other things, this can lead to greater mental clarity, better sleep, decreased pain, less stress, and overall well being. I am still taken aback at times by how different, and how at peace a person may even look, after receiving Reiki.

On this Valentine's day I wish for you to find the loving blessings that await each one of you. And I thank those of you who have blessed my life by welcoming the real gift of Reiki.

In Peace and with Love,
