Dada’s Orphanage and Education Centre in Dagoretti, Nairobi is the brain child of Nitin Shah, a solo philanthropist. With the help of Jennifer, who manages this and other projects of Nitin, this centre houses orphans and educates them as well as children from the poor Dagoretti neighbourhood.
We had taught the children Reiki level 1 last year. But they had new children that needed to be trained, so on 16th May 2019, LHSG’s Sheela Shah and Punita Acharya did the training at the school. They were assisted by LHSG members Shalini srivastava, Bubbles Dhadialla, Sonal shah and Shariffa Keshavjee.
Each Reiki training camp leaves us ever more grateful to the Universe for being the instrument of change in the young.

There are no words to describe a Reiki camp at Dada’s Primary School in Dagoretti, except “Fantastic”. I had 35 children with Shalini and Sonal assisting me. We arrived there on time and the children were ready for us. They were all so disciplined with pin drop silence. I briefed them with the history of Reiki first, then they were taught the names & position of the chakras. Within minutes they had learnt the names of the chakras. Then the attunement followed. Once that was done they did Reiki on themselves with their super-hot hands with Reiki flowing from them. Once that was done, we went on to the 5 Reiki Principals which Shalini conducted extremely well.
We then had a lunch break followed by the afternoon session of partner healing. They couldn’t believe that they could heal with their hands with this powerful tool of Reiki. One child commented “now we will be healing ourselves & family members with Reiki and not running to the doctor”. This was music to the ears and my heart filled with joy listening to these last words!
Certificates were given out with a small gift from LHSG – milk and bananas, which were very much appreciated.
The children promised to practice every day and said they couldn’t wait to learn level 2.
My gratitude to Sheela, Shariffa, Bubbles Sonal and Shalini for their excellent support and teamwork which made this camp a successful one!

The Reiki l camp at Dada school, Dargoretti today was another successful camp. Our team consisting of Punita, Sharifaji, Shalini, Bubbles, Sonal and I had 70 plus students. Sharifaji, Bubbles and I were in one class with 40 students. All the students were smart and well behaved throughout the session. They listened to the origin of Reiki and the science of chakras attentively. Once attunement was done, the self-healing exercise kicked off. It didn’t take long for Reiki to flow in the hands of the children. As we progressed from one chakra to another, the children were able to experience the healing taking place. At the end of the session, they expressed how good, strong and energised they felt. We broke off for lunch at 12.30. After the scrumptious potluck lunch, we resumed the second session at 1pm. After pairing up the children, partner healing started. The children were thrilled to be able to receive healing from their friends and quite chafed that they could heal others. I highlighted the fact the powerful gift they have in their hands now. Once the principles and benefits of Reiki were explained and clarified, the group photos were taken and certificates were given out. The children promised to practice Reiki every day and looked forward to Reiki ll.
My gratitude to the whole team for a fantastic team work and for this rewarding experience
Greening the Earth is the dire need of the day.
Lotus Healing Seva (Kenya) Group’s Cooky Vora takes this business of greening the Earth very seriously. She does this by planting trees at every opportunity she gets. She does this in the surroundings of her house and on her street.
Her latest project was to plant trees in a school up the road from her house. With this in mind, three of us LHSG members, Cooky Vora, Monica Gokaldas and I, Kamal Tolia, met on 2nd May 2019 at the Farasi Lane Primary and Secondary School. We were joined by Monica’s daughter Bhavna Gokaldas. It was our wish to show the children how to plant trees the Reiki way and by chanting the peace mantra Aum Shanti Shanti, Shanti and not to forget to ask forgiveness from mother Earth.
With the kind permission of the Head Master Patrick Ounza, we were allotted the children of Form 1 of the secondary school. After explaining to them the importance of planting trees, we divided them into 3 groups, one each for Cooky and myself and Monica and Bhavna together took the 3rd group. We proceeded to plant the 30 trees that had been bought by Cooky and sponsored by LHSG Members.
The trees were planted in different areas around the school. Each tree was named after a student who promised to look after it and bless it every day.
One more good deed done for our Mother Earth!
This is the eighth place in which LHSG Kenya have planted trees, after thrice in Karura Forest, once in Sigiria Forest, twice in Compassionate Hands Centre in Ruia, and once in the SSDS Temple Grounds. In each case we have had 90 – 96 % success rate, which is much higher the usual 60-65% success rate when trees are not planted the Reiki way and as prescribed in our sacred books, the Vedas.
Thank you dear subscribers, for your support in reading and commenting on our posts. If you would like to know how to plant trees ‘the more successful way’ I will be happy to share the method with you.

Our first Lotus Healing Seva Group Perth Seva.
On the 5th May 2019, CINI (Child In Need Institute) had their annual Mothers day high tea.
Our Lotus Healing Seva Group, as in previous years had decided to make and pack the give-away sweet. On 4th morning 5 of us, Dr. Jennie Connaughton, Rima,Leigh, Dorothia and Naz and I Rajunderpal went to the location and packed 250 give-away favours.
We, The Lotus Healing Seva Group Perth members started by giving Reiki to the whole hall, followed by Reiki to the sweets which were bought by LHSG for $325. For the silent action, we gave 2 free sessions of Reiki @ Australian $ 50 each and we donated a painting as well worth $100. We also paid for the sweets
This year we have managed to sell 43 tickets @$50 each.
We do this every year. The proceeds of the High Tea go to the projects of a Child in Need Institute in Kolkatta, India. In the pictures we have the Indian mothers that enjoyed the tea.
Our efforts were appreciated, as shown in the last picture.

For the past 7 years, Lotus Healing Seva Group Kenya, has been associated with Talia Agler Girls Shelter (TAGS) in Nairobi. We have been training the girls of this shelter in Reiki as well as sponsoring some of them for their education.
TAGS is a shelter for girls and women that have been trafficked, abused, abandoned and exploited, not only in Kenya but from the neighbouring countries like Uganda, Tanzania, Ethioia and Burundi, to name a few.
On 24th April, our LHSG Kenya member Sheela Shah did the training of 48 girls / women at the shelter. We are so grateful to the Founder and proprietor of TAGS Edith Morogo, for her kind permission and support for this training camp. And as always we give our gratitude to the Universe for making us the instrument to touch the lives of these girls and women with our love and light.
Thank you too, dear subscribers, for your support.

The TAGS Reiki l camp was conducted on 24/4/19, with Punita Acharya, Anuradha Nath, Bhavna Baga, Sonal Patel and I in attendance. There were 48 girls registered and about 10 old girls sat in for a refresher.
There was a bit of a challenge with this group this time as there were about 25 girls/ladies from Burundi with very little understanding of English and Kiswahili. Fortunately one of the older girls, Quinta, graciously agreed to be my interpreter as and when the need arose. The girls grasped the origin of Reiki and the meaning of chakras quite quickly. After attunement was done we moved along to self-healing. It didn’t take long before some of the girls began to get tired and became reluctant to carry on. With gentle persuasion and encouragement, they persevered and completed the exercise. It was wonderful to feel their warm Reiki hands. As the lunch was a bit delayed, I made use of the time to go through the 5 principles of Reiki and also get some feedback of how they felt after the self- healing. A few girls said some aches and pains that they had, had disappeared after the healing. We then took the group pictures after which I let them off for lunch.
Lunch was finally done by 2.00pm and we were able to start our partner healing session. This whole exercise went really well as the girls took their time patiently giving Reiki to their partners. Quite a number of them dozed off as they received the healing. Watching the girls in action was evident that they had understood the chakra positions and also how to place their hands correctly.
Once this partner healing session was done, I congratulated them on how well they had performed. The girls expressed how happy they felt to be able to give healing to another, as this skill made them feel good. Yes, definitely their way of expressing how empowered they felt.
I concluded by touching a little on Reiki ll but emphasised the importance of healing themselves first every day for the next 3 weeks. With assurances that they’ll do so, the girls thanked us and hoped to see us soon.
At this juncture, I give my immense gratitude to Punita, Anuradha, Bhavna and Sonal for their expert assistance that made this camp an enjoyable and rewarding one. Gratitude also as always to Reiki and our Lotus family for all the support and healing that assured another successful camp.
