Cincinnati Reiki Day 

Reiki Day Theme: Reiki and Mindfulness,
Deepening Your Practice

Cincinnati Reiki Day is for Reiki Practitioners from all lineages to come together as a community. We continue to practice Reiki, learn, be inspired from each other, and share hands-on healing. In this gathering we will be focusing on the connection between Reiki and Mindfulness with presenters Maria Kammerer, Zeynep Yilmaz and Sundar Kadayam. We will be immersing ourselves in the teachings so that our direct experience can help us to deepen our practice.

The whole day is open to all levels of Reiki Training.

Maria Kammerer will be sharing from her experience at Plum Village Mindfulness Center, Thich Nhat Hanh's monastery in the south of France. We will be discovering for ourselves how the system of Mindfulness and the system of Reiki are inter-related and how to support the deepening of your Reiki practice and your daily life. We will immerse ourselves in the practices of walking meditation, noble silence, and mindful eating... Reiki Style. Mindful Hugging meditation led by Zeynep Yilmaz , and deepening our practice led by Sundar Kadayam, the day will end with a Reiki share, hands on healing.
