Virtual Reiki Shares for Nurses

by | Jul 8, 2015 | 4 comments

So, for those of you who do not know, I attempt to host a monthly Reiki share. In not one, but two places. And guess what? No surprise to me or any busy nurse reading… they are poorly attended.


Reiki Practice: Self-Care for Nurses #Reiki #nursingfromwithinWell, it’s not because people don’t enjoy them. They do- in fact, they email me asking for dates that will work for them. And it’s not because of lack of students… at this point I have trained… oh, about 50 or so nurses and nursing students in Reiki I… So what is it?

It’s life. We have our schedules, competing priorities. Families, work, play. So attending a Reiki share for self-care gets bumped from the agenda.

Well guess what? I spoke at a Reiki conference in Massachusetts this past spring and one of the other presenters shared a really neat idea with me…

Virtual Reiki Shares!

That’s right. Getting on the phone and doing some self-Reiki once a month. And guess what again? No surprise… these were HIGHLY attended. As people found it easier to take 20 minutes out of their day and simply call in to the self-healing and self-care share.

So that’s what we’re gonna do. Because selfishly, it will help me sustain my own self-Reiki Practice. And not-so-selfishly, it will help y’all attend!

Self-Reiki-BadgeI’ve also realize that you don’t need to be Reiki trained to join us. If you are, great. You can do self-Reiki during the virtual share. If you’re not trained in Reiki Practice, you can still call in and simply follow along in a self-healing meditative state that’s sure to help any busy nurse relax!

    What a great idea, Elizabeth. I have a friend who has done ‘Distance Reiki” for my mom in FL and in my mind you are tapping into and creating a new way of helping others benefit from this practice. Not only is it progressive in terms of self care and access to support for nurses, but it also pushes the virtual learning edge forward. I look forward to hearing more about Virtual Reiki!

      Cool to hear that you’ve tried this with your Mom, Beth. While I am still one to struggle with ‘how’ distance Reiki really happens, I figure that sharing our Reiki share in this virtual space will be a no-brainer. It’s really going to be a time for quiet reflection, introspection, and meditation. Pretty much self-Reiki practice from the comfort of your own home with the accountability of joining the group. I am excited!
