On 4th October 2019, LHSG Kenya taught Reiki Level 2 to the Grade 5 Children of Sathya Sai School in Uthiru, Nairobi. They had learned Reiki level 1 more than 6 months ago, so this Level 2 camp was long overdue. The school caters to the educational needs of the poor children in the Uthiru neighbourhood.
LHSG Kenya member Mamta Advani conducted this camp, assisted by LHSG member Neena Gupta. We also donated KSh 5000 to the Sathya Sai school Uthiru Trust.
Do read what Mamta and Neena have to say …..

Today the camp at Uthiru went very well. The children as usual were so sweet and waiting for us …… and very enthusiastic to learn Reiki Level 2 … we had 26 students and 2 teachers., total 28 …it was very smooth and the headmaster brother Sam was very welcoming … want to share a little incident …. It was 12.30 pm, lunch time …..I told them to go for lunch … all the kids left the class room … but one little boy came back …. He asked me if Reiki can bring back dead people … So I told him no .. and why are you asking …. His face dropped ….. I asked him, who did you want back … he said … my mother … it really broke my heart … I hugged him and told him … your mother’s love is always with you … a very touching moment …. And this little boy ….. you will be surprised to see in the video, how he was making his symbols in the air … when we told them to draw the symbols in the air … he was the one who drew them in the air with folded hands … and he knew all the answers … he was very much in touch with what is Reiki … he did all the healing and everything so well … all these experiences were soooo touching …. We really don’t know what is going on in the hearts and minds of these little children …. At the end, Brother Sam told us to come up and speak to the Grade 8 parents who had come for a meeting … he suggested that we open their minds to the idea of Reiki … on the whole, a very good day … Thank you for this beautiful seva opportunity ….
Today’s Reiki camp at Sathya Sai School went very well … the kids were very disciplined and keen to learn … they felt very happy to know that from now on they can send healing to people far away from them and to events that will be coming up …
Lotus Healing Seva Group (Kenya) was privileged to conduct a Reiki level 1 Training camp in Gujarati! This was a first for us!
I was approached by Prafulla Ganatra, of the Lohana Gujarati community in Nairobi, to train the elderly in her community in Reiki. These beautiful people were aged 65 and above, many of them being in their 70’s and eighties!
The training was spread over two Wednesdays, 2.5 hours each day. This period coincided with the Hindu Shraad period, when our ancestors dimension is closest to our Earth Dimension, and we can do charitable and seva work in their honour, as well as receive their blessings!
It was such a pleasure teaching these men and women who were 26 in number.
Eagerness showed in their faces even as they walked into the hall and took their seats.
One of the ladies had cancelled her travel plans so she could attend the workshop!
They did the Aum and the Gurur Mantra and joined us in our prayers.
They sat in pure meditative poses throughout the attunement.
We knew we had a dedicated group. . Their hands were boiling hot as they healed themselves!
Though some could not reach their back chakras, they did the best they could.
They received the gift of Reiki in total trust and humility!
Of special mention is Lois, who was the helper of one of the elderly ladies in a wheel chair. She didn’t understand Gujarati, but received the attunement willingly, followed the chakra positions, and did the self-healing very satisfactorily.
How much more blessed could one be. . Giving in this period of Shraad to the elderly. . . .
We have surely been blessed by our ancestors.
LHSG Founder member Monica Gokaldas and LHSG member Cooky Vora joined me in this seva. We were also joined by Reiki healers Prafulla Ganatra and Laxmi Vellani.
Our special thanks to the Lohana Community Chairman Bharatbhai Thakrar and the entire Lohana Committee for allowing us to impart the Reiki training to their senior members, and to allow us the use of their hall. And our gratitude to Prafulla Ganatra for making the people interested in Reiki, and for organizing everything.
Monica’s account is next, followed by the slide show and video.
Thank you for your support.

We had a very fulfilling morning teaching Reiki level 1 to 28 elderly people. Unfortunately we had to turn away some people as they came in much later.
It was such a pleasure teaching these elderly as they are so in tune with the spiritual energies. They seemed mesmerized during attunement and some of them despite their age, didn’t fidget even a little bit. They didn’t have doubts or questions and were in total acceptance of what was being taught.
Kamal conducted the teaching in Gujarati and though she doubted her perfection at that, they all gave her full marks for her Gujarati. Prafulla also added her bits to the teaching and it was amazing to see both Prafulla Ganatra and Laxmi Vellani do it all so well despite volunteering at a camp after many years.
My gratitude for the opportunity to do this seva for the aged during our Hindu Pitru Paksh (fortnight in reverence towards our ancestors). It felt like we were (Prafulla, Laxmi, Kamal, Cooky and myself) offering our love and gratitude to our ancestors by sharing our love with these elderly people of our society.
