Values

We honor and practice the Reiki Principles, expressed by founder Mikao Usui:

Today only

Do not anger;

Do not worry;

With gratitude,

Work diligently;

Be kind to others.

Be kind to others

Being kind to others means that we plan carefully to give treatment in settings and with approaches that:

  • arise from compassion;

  • are safe and professional;

  • maintain client privacy and confidentiality;

  • respect our clients’ cultural backgrounds, beliefs and boundaries;

  • observe the limits of our Reiki practice and refrain from medical or psychological diagnosis or prescription;

  • honor the integrity, informed consent and inner healing capacity of our clients; and

  • empower our clients’ self-healing strengths and abilities, to support their highest and greatest good.

Work diligently

We honor the principle of right livelihood, aiming to earn sustenance from our service to those who can financially support our work.

We honor the pay-it-forward principle for those who need support from us and the community at large.

We work cooperatively with shared ownership of Reiki Community Health & Wellbeing, and use our fellowship to bring out the best in each other.

We fulfill our responsibility to the public by being accountable for our work and transparent in our operations and finances.

Do not anger; do not worry; with gratitude

We practice daily Reiki self-treatment, which supports our efforts each day to avoid anger and worry, and to feel gratitude for our gifts. Day by day, this practice deepens our own healing awareness, so that we may be fully present for giving treatment to others.

We observe and honor the rhythms of Nature in our lives and bodies, and take good care of ourselves. We remind and help each other to slow down and fully receive the gifts of life, love and community.

We take great joy in being able to share our practice of Reiki, for the benefit of our communities and the world around us.
