‘After coming to Reiki in 1999 I started The Reiki Connection (TRC) in March 2002. My goal was to have a small, local (to Bristol) and supportive Reiki organisation, initially for all my Reiki Students.
My first challenge was to secure a block Reiki PL insurance through HL Balen for members; which happened 2 months later, May 2002.
There was, and still is, no charge for my Reiki students to register with TRC.
This registration is also extended to first line students of my trained Reiki Master/Teachers.
Registration shows the student has received face-to-face training and has a recognised Reiki lineage.
Full TRC membership, reasonably priced, ensures members have a support network, and are kept fully up-to-date with all aspects of Reiki.
Reiki works in mysterious ways and in 2003 I found myself representing my TRC members on the newly formed Reiki Regulatory Working Group, which blossomed into the Reiki Council I have been serving on these boards for many. many years.
Representing Reiki I am also on the Profession Specific Board (P.S.B.) for Complementary & Natural Health Care Council (CNHC).
As TRC has grown in stature and numbers, it is now not exclusive to TRC Reiki Connection trained practitioners, and applications for membership are happily accepted. I still have direct contact with all members and TRC maintains the ‘family’ feel.
Membership to the TRC ensures you are kept fully informed in regards to all aspects of Reiki whether you practice your Reiki in the Traditional Reiki manner, or if you have ventured out into the exciting world of Reiki for Professional Practice, practising, or teaching Reiki in accordance with the National Occupational Standards for Reiki.
Again I think it important to mention again that TRC is open to all Reiki Attuned persons.
The criteria for membership are to have had face-to-face attunements with a Reiki Master who has a valid/recognised lineage.’
The more we work together the greater we achieve.
