The on line Reiki Level 1 training at Faraja Cancer Support Centre went very well. We had only 5 students, 2 cancer survivors and 3 care givers, but they were very keen, attentive and natural at Reiki. They were on time, taking notes, asking questions and sharing their experiences. Although it was a small group it was very interactive. It was a two day session from 10am-1 pm on 17th & 18th .

Azmina was very efficient with the preparation, coordination and teaching. Thank you Azmina.

The trainees had amazing experiences to share. They are now looking forward to the Reiki level 2 training in January.

Thanks go to Beryl from Faraja for organizing everything well.

The Faraja Reiki training camp went very very well. Everything flowed perfectly. Mamta’s expert teaching, the students willingness, openness towards the teaching and receiving, their natural abilities and intuitiveness to self-healing and partner healing, their first hand experiences. It was amazing and a very fulfilling experience for all. Deepest gratitude to God, the universe, Faraja and the trainees for this wonderful wonderful seva opportunity and experience. Thank you.

I feel blessed to have two ladies for Reiki level 1, as part of our Lotus Healing Seva Group’s Anniversary Seva.

They were so eager to learn this awesome healing tool.

Both of them had questions and were amazed by the answers they got because it was new to them and to know what Reiki can do, they felt their decision to learn Reiki was right.

One lady is quite young and has a 6 year old son and wants him to get this spirituality in his life at an early age.

LHSG’s 16th Anniversary Seva No 7

The Hawkers Market Girls Centre provides a yearly program of education and vocational training to girls aged between 16-22 years who live in the surrounding slums, and who are unable to access formal education. The Lotus Healing Seva Group (LHSG) has been teaching the girls Reiki for a number of years now, enabling them to learn and use healing for self and others. Our yearly Reiki Training program for the girls of the Hawkers Market Girls Centre was held on 10th and 11th November 2021.

Please read on for the reports of Azmina and Punita, who conducted the Reiki 1 and 2 trainings respectively.

This was my first experience teaching six (6) girls Reiki Level 1. The girls were aged between 17-18 years. The training was conducted using a virtual platform. A few setbacks, for instance, starting off later than scheduled and problems with the internet connection were experienced but notwithstanding, the training overall was a success.

Though the girls had no idea about what Reiki is, I found them to be very open-minded about the idea. They took a bit of time to grasp the history of Reiki and Chakras but with a bit of explanations they understood and even remembered Dr. Usui and his experiences as well as the Chakras, their positions and colors the next day. The attunement was well received by the students where they reported feeling light and lots of heat especially in their palms. After that they proceeded to do healing on themselves and they all felt of lots of heat in their palms, relaxation, feeling less stressful. One of them even felt her headache had gone and was feeling better blood flowing through the body.

The next day most of them expressed that they had slept very well the previous night and were feeling very relaxed. Whilst undertaking the partner-healing, they felt much heat again pouring out of their palms. At the end of the training, the girls appreciated the various benefits of Reiki which they had already started experiencing for themselves during the training. They promised to start their days by saying the 5 Reiki principles and try to practice them in their lives. They also undertook to do self-healing everyday as well as on others so that they continue to feel the wonderful benefits of Reiki. They expressed their gratitude for the gift of Reiki.

It was a most humbling experience for me, being given a change to be of service and pass on the gift of Reiki to these young girls, which I hope will be life changing for them. I am grateful to LHSG for the seva opportunity.

The HMGC Reiki level 2 online training on Thursday 11th and Friday 12th November 2021, was a great success and the girls benefited tremendously.

I had 13 girls in total. They had already been practicing their level 1 Reiki so learning the symbols came to them very easily.

As we progressed in learning, the girls were very happy that they could do distant healing for family members that were at home.

We as LHSG treated these girls with lunch on both the days. The first day was green grams, chappati, cabbage and carrot salad On the second day there was pilau rice, with a tomato and onion salad. This was a treat they thoroughly enjoyed.

Overall for me, as a teacher, I felt that this is going to help them in many different situations in their lives.

LHSG’s 16th Anniversary Seva No 6

Tree Planting in the ISKCON Temple Grounds in Thika

This was our first external seva done together since the covid pandemic. It was done on Wednesday 10th November 2021 by LHSG Kenya Members Sheela Shah, Deepu Mahajan, Laveena Keswani, Bhavna Baga, Sakina Taki. Mamta Advani was overall in charge. As in the past, forgiveness was asked from Mother Earth for hurting her, blessing the hole with Reiki,  reciting Sankrit mantras while planting the tree and watering it, and then finally blessing the tree with Reiki as well as giving a verbal blessing.

Please read on to know more …. and do watch the video below ….

The tree planting at ISKCON farm in Thika was a beautiful Sewa. We were able to manage all the challenges of distance, time and planting 76 fruit trees (31 avocado + 21 papaya + 5 amla+ 17 lemon + 2  anjeer ) to plant with only 6 people.

What touched me deeply was that rain or strong sun …. Nothing mattered …..  we were all engrossed in planting the trees in the sacred way as taught by Kamalji.

Giving Reiki to the cows was also very gratifying.

Today’s tree planting exercise at ISKON farm was such a gratifying experience. This was my first seva outing since the pandemic began and I couldn’t have had it any other way. The farm was so well kept, with lovely fruits and vegetables flourishing everywhere. It was easy to feel inspired to add on more trees in the farm as it was apparent it will all be well cared for. The cool rain that blessed us was another bonus to our endeavour. Later, the scrumptious lunch that followed was a reward that we were pleasantly surprised as it turned out to be a feast. I loved the banana leaf meal. After the lunch, we went over to the gaushala where we fed the cows and bulls chapattis and completed our interaction by giving Reiki to all of them.

The whole experience was made perfect only by the organising back work done by Punita, Neena, Kamalji and Mamta….. and then the wonderful team work of today of Laveena, Bhavna, Mamta, Deepu and Sakina and last but not least to Reiki for the smooth sailing of the exercise. Thank you very much. Looking forward to many more LSHG ventures.

The tree planting seva at ISKON farm on 10th November was a wonderful experience. The energy was so divine. The farm is well kept. It looks so beautiful and serene. We LHSG are blessed to be able to plant 76 trees in that divine place. As soon as we started our seva, it started raining. I was touched to see our sisters seva bhaav and enthusiasm towards their work that even rains could not stop them. Pleasant weather was a favor and blessings from God. Then we were called for lunch. It was a different experience to have banana leaf meal. Than we proceeded to the gau shala. The cows look very healthy. It’s always satisfying to feed the cows and bless them. Lastly, we gave thanks to Narayan Prabhu and the workers in the farm as without their support and their help, we would not finish our seva smoothly. Big thanks to Kamal aunty, Punita and Mamta and Neena ji for organizing this trip. Everything was well planned.

It was a very gratifying experience. Thank you. Love n light

LHSG’s 16th Anniversary Seva Nos 4 & 5

Our dear friend Vikram Narain, who teaches the poor Hindu farm workers children in Nasarpur, Sindh, Pakistan and his children Nandini and Nand were very eager to move on to learning Reiki level 2. Accordingly, on 6th and 8th October, I did a distant online Reiki level 2 with them. They were taught how to do self-healing using the Reiki symbols, distant healing, healing of relationships, healing of souls, programming Reiki and healing the Earth.

Needless to say they were very happy with the results which they experienced even during the training.

Below, Vikram shares how Reiki has already given beautiful results for his family.


Talia Agler Girls Shelter is a Shelter for abused, trafficked and abandoned girls in Nairobi. We have been associated with the shelter for more than 10 years. We train the girls in Reiki every year and support them with foodstuff. Our latest seva was on 7th October when we did an online attunement for 3 new mums and the Shelter nurse Agnes Waweru. The girls that had been trained in the past, helped us by showing the new trainees the chakra positions and how to do healing for self and for others.

Since it is a shelter, we do not have photos, but one girl and a new mum share how they use Reiki.

Our gratitude to Agnes Waweru, who assisted us in seeing the execution of this training. Many thanks to the shelter founder Edith Murogo, for allowing us to continue training the girls in Reiki every year.
