Supporting the healing endeavors of all individuals practicing Reiki in the Midwest

Meridians Primer and Reiki Share

November 10, 2012
By Molly Coeling

The Saturday November 10 Midwest Reiki Community (MRC) Reiki Share was a 2-hour event featuring a short lecture by Lisa Alvarez, co-owner of our host facility, Healing Foundations. Lisa is a licensed and board certified acupuncturist and master level Reiki practitioner, and her lecture focused on the meridian system and how we can apply the concept of meridians to our Reiki practice. It turns out that many of us were already practicing some of these techniques, being the intuitive healers and creatures that we are, but it’s always nice to get some validation from an expert in the field!

After Lisa’s lecture, the 20 or so participants broke out into small groups to incorporate some of this new information into our Reiki Share. Some of the techniques we practiced included:

  • Ways to address stubborn blockages by clearing pathways for energy to travel through
  • Using connections throughout the body to indirectly treat specific areas by directing energy into other areas
  • A technique to help unite the upper and lower body
  • Working “away from the body” – up to many feet, even – in order to prevent physical or emotional issues from manifesting in the body

We were so excited to see so many new faces, as well as many familiar faces, and we are grateful to Lisa for helping us grow our knowledge and skills (and for sharing the digs at Healing Foundations!).
