President’s Update

Reiki NZ Inc. – Chairperson’s Update

Autumn 2022/23 Report from our Chairperson, Michele Gunns

Kia Ora and Welcome!

Once again, we come to the changing of the seasons and are made aware of the passage of time and the cycles of life that we are part of.

Here in the southern hemisphere, we move towards Autumn.  Mother Earth continues to maintain her balance, while slowly turning on her journey around the sun.

We reflect this in our daily use of self-Reiki, which helps us maintain balance as we move through our own life journey, learning and healing.

Thinking about healing in this way has led me to a quote from the Greek Philosopher, Plato:

 “The cure of the part should not be attempted without treatment of the whole. No attempt should be made to cure the body without the soul…this is the error of our day, that physicians first separate the soul from the body.”

Reiki is a most wonderful gift that can help us in so many ways. This is especially welcome in a time when we have faced so many changes in our freedom and choices.

Many of us have not been able to hold our regular Reiki share groups, Reiki classes or Reiki related events.

We have as an organisation, however, been able to host a number of online meditation sessions, as well as online talks with Frank Arjava Petter and Frans Stiene. All these events have been really well attended and responded to with some wonderful messages of gratitude and appreciation.

I am pleased to report that our membership continues to increase each month. We now have 356 members. Annual renewal notices have been sent out recently, offering two payment methods. This year we did not post your membership certificates. Instead, we have emailed you a PDF that can be printed out, if you so wish.

Planning is well underway for the 2022 Reiki NZ Conference which (covid restrictions permitting) will be held in Rotorua. The programme developed by the Conference subcommittee looks exciting and I do hope that many of you will be able to attend.

Keep well and keep safe, remembering to shine your light brightly.

Love and Reiki Blessings,

Michele Gunns
