Would you like to hold a Reiki Share in this current situation, when we are not able to visit each other? Perhaps you would like to find out how some other people are managing their Reiki Shares.

Perhaps you have been holding remote Reiki Share already. You might like to share your experience in the comments below.

There are many ways to hold a Reiki Share remotely. You can either do the share online with virtual meeting software like Zoom, or it can be done beautifully without being online.

Here is one suggestion for doing it without being online:
“The sharing group was contacted by email or phone and a set time was agreed. About 10 mins before the agreed time I lit a candle and sat in Reiki to create an energetic circle and visualised the sharing group holding hands in this circle. I said the names of each in the sharing group and sent Reiki for the self treatments that followed to be for our highest and greatest good.  The group then self treated for the appointed amount of time.

We had agreed a basic format for a 30 minute self treatment, 5 minutes in each of the following positions - eyes, side of the head, back of the head, heart, solar plexus and just below the navel, so six positions in all, this added to the sense of synchronicity, but was only a guide. Participants could treat whatever needed treating in the way that they would usually treat themselves.   At the end of the 30 minutes each of us bowed with our hands in the prayer/gasho position to signify the end of the share and a way of honoring the presence of each other. It was a very beautiful experience for us all.”

Here is a sharing of a 90 minute Reiki Share offered using Zoom software:
“I guided the participants through an opening circle, connecting with our body, with the lineage, and with Reiki. This took about 5-10minutes.

Then I invited them to introduce themselves, sharing where they live, how they were feeling, what they were finding helpful at this time, etc. This took about 20-30 minutes. Being able to see and hear each other was very well received.

Then I invited them to do a self treatment together, in a comfortable position – either seated or lying down. I guided them through the self treatment, inviting them to move at their own pace, listening to my voice if they wished to, or not. We did this for about half an hour.

After this we shared our experience of self treating together – although remotely, and the feedback was amazing. I invited questions, if any, in this closing circle, which took about 15 minutes. And we finished with gratitude. It was especially gratifying to hear requests for more such gatherings during this time.

My learning from this first offering is to keep it simple.”

Another suggestion is to include any feedback received from people unable to attend the Share, but wanting the group to know how they are, in the opening/closing circle.

We invite you to share your experience of holding Reiki Shares remotely and help enrich offerings to the community. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have in the comments below.
