Reiki Roundup

We begin this week in Milton Keynes, UK, where "Hundreds of Reiki therapists are to join forces to hold a huge healing session in a bid to cure the ailing Midsummer Place oak tree" on Sunday, July 13, at 3:30 p.m. local time. They won't be anywhere near the tree, however, because the management of the Midsummer Place Shopping Centre won't let them.

"I think it may be construed as inappropriate in that we could be perceived as not taking the tree's difficulties seriously," Midsummer Place manager Martin Hindson told the local newspaper, The Citizen. Hindson seems unaware of the fact that the Reiki practitioner organizing the healing event also works with cancer patients through the National Health Service, without anyone thinking those treatments are a sign of not taking those patients' difficulties seriously.

Keeping the practitioners away from the tree won't reduce their numbers, however. "The beauty of Reiki is that it can be done from a distance," practitioner Jean Wickson said. "We'll still hold the session for the tree – but we'll do it from my house."

"And we can ask every other Reiki practitioner in the city and all over the country to join in at exactly the same time 3.30pm on Sunday. "That way the tree will get a huge amount of healing."

So let's see, 3:30 p.m. in the UK is 11:30 a.m. in New York, so we're marking our calendar here at The Reiki Digest world headquarters to join in the tree healing from across the Atlantic. If you'd like to join in, click here to find out what time the event takes place where you are.

On to Shankill, Ireland, where a Reiki practitioner's garden (that's "back yard" in American English) was transformed from a space used only for "putting out bins" into a spot for meditation and relaxation thanks to a landscaping competition.

Next stop, Medford, Massachusetts, where nurse and Reiki practitioner Michelle Heron was honored at the Clinical Advancement Recognition Tea.

And in Vail, Colorado, writer Catherine Zeeb mentions Reiki in an article on energy medicine, in which she predicts that "within 20 years there will be complete integration of science and holistic healing that combines spirit, intuition and technology." So we're marking our calendars again, this time for the year 2028, to see if her prediction comes true.
