Reiki Level 2 Online Training in Nairobi, Kenya

The Reiki ll Faraja camp on Thursday and Friday, (12&13th Nov), was attended by 2 individuals from last month’s Reiki l group. With minimum hiccups on both days the sessions went very well. The attunement and all the healing modalities were received and learnt smoothly. Both the ladies keenly practiced absent healing by various methods, Reiki box and learnt the power of group healing that was successfully experimented even via zoom.

When the ladies expressed how strongly they experienced the flow of Reiki in their hands when giving healing, I was truly humbled. Proved once again how powerful the Reiki symbols are.

Both the ladies expressed how empowered they felt now and were grateful. As always I gave thanks to Reiki and to this seva opportunity.

Mukuru Outreach Academy Celebrates LHSG’s 15th Anniversary

Yes, we are celebrating our 15th Anniversary. And the children and staff of Mukuru Outreach Academy are celebrating with us!

Besides sponsoring 30 odd children in Mukuru Outreach Academy, Lotus Healing Seva Group has been Reiki – associated with the academy (a school for the children in the Mukuru slum area of Nairobi) since the past 5 years. We have been training the children and teachers in Reiki level 1 and 2. Many are the positive changes they have experienced with Reiki in their life. They have shared these freely in the video below.

LHSG is grateful to all at Mukuru Outreach Academy for staying true to the Reiki path. The school has adopted the Reiki Principles as the school prayer every day! Unfortunately, because of the strained conditions this year, we were unable to treat them to the annual fun day outing. So the next best thing we thought of was to treat them to some food that they like. Hence, on 29th November 2020, they were treated to cake, milk, green gram curry / stew and chappatis. They loved it all, and even sang Happy Birthday for Lotus Healing Seva Group!

Our immense gratitude to the Head Teacher Mr Enock Nyananga, who has kept the Reiki flag flying high in the school, and who helped in the planning, ordering and executing of this special LHSG’s celebration!

Please do watch the slideshow and video below, and celebrate with us!

15th Anniversary Seva Number 4.

Spreading Love and Light has been our primary mission all these years. And more so to the sick, the elderly and those that suffer from cancer.

On October 8th and 9th, LHSG Kenya member Sheela Shah conducted an on line Reiki level 1 workshop for 5 cancer patients and care givers of Faraja Cancer Support Centre in Nairobi, Kenya.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any photos or videos recorded of the event, but we do have a thank you e mail from one of the participants. Please read on ….

Gratitude to Faraja for hosting this on line event, and for their support all these years. A special thank you to Philip and Beryl for making this workshop happen.

Faraja Reiki l camp 8th and 9th October 2020

Five individuals took part in this Reiki workshop. The participants were a mix of care givers and cancer survivors.

The first day started with wifi issues from the word go but eventually we were able to start about 30 mins later.

 The introduction, what chakras are, the 5 rules of Reiki, the attunement, self  healing, partner healing and the benefits of Reiki, were all covered comprehensively in the two days.

All the participants expressed feeling calm and very relaxed during the attunement. During the self and partner healing sessions, the participants were happy to feel Reiki flow from their hands. The partners who received healing gave positive feedback such as feeling warmth and a keen sense of deep restfulness.

Queries were answered and finally keen interests were expressed by all the participants to learn Reiki ll. It was very rewarding to get this feedback and assured them a date will be fixed for a month from now for Reiki ll.

My gratitude for this opportunity to hold this camp especially under the challenges of the current times. It is fortunate that online mode of teaching is effective and accessible.

Response from one of the participants

Dear Sheela,

This was a great opportunity for me which I have been looking for. It just felt like a dream come true to get the opportunity to learn Reiki and the sessions themselves were well conducted and guided clearly. I have been practicing and I feel improving slowly especially for chakra healing.

Am looking for level II session so I can be able to send Reiki to those unwell so they can feel the joy of healing through Reiki.

LHSG 15th Anniversary Events 2 and 3.

In keeping with our mission of spreading the knowledge of Reiki and empowering all people with the healing power of Reiki, on 20th and 21st September 2020, LHSG (Kenya) members Mamta Advani and I, Kamal Tolia, carried out a Reiki level 1 training camp for 43 children of the Hindu Refugee camp in Adarsh Nagar, Delhi, India. This was the 2nd such camp, the first one having been done a month ago for 21 children and adults.

We did the training on line. The children (in Delhi), sat on the verandah floor of the home of their teacher Vikram Lalwani, (himself a refugee from Sindh, Pakistan), while Mamta and I sat in Nairobi, Kenya. They were all bright and cheery, eagerly awaiting the gift of Reiki!

Teaching children is always an extra special joy, and this Reiki camp was no exception. The children learned with all their heart and mind and soul. They listened keenly to the instructions for self-healing and partner healing, and carried them out to perfection! And the proof of their new found healing power lay in their reporting at the end of the class of stomach ache gone, cough gone, head ache gone, leg pain gone, and so on! We ended the training with the children giving Reiki to their snacks of pattis and bananas before eating them.

The second Reiki training was held on 19th Sept and 26th September for the refugee camp’s manager HariOm  Sahoo and 3 camp volunteers. They too learned the basics of Reiki and became Reiki Level 1 healers!

So in total, we were blessed to have introduced 43 + 4 = 47 new entrants to the world of Reiki!

My gratitude to the Universe for affording us yet another opportunity to bring Love and Light into the lives of these refugees, who have so little in their life to begin with. And gratitude to Vikram and Hari Omji as well for all their help in arranging for this Reiki training. 

These Reiki training camps will be the beginning of many more such camps we will be having for these refugees in the months to come!
