The Canadian Reiki Association (CRA) is holding its 21st Annual General Meeting in North Vancouver this year. If you have studied Reiki with me, you will be familiar with the CRA from your Reiki course(s). If you are a student of mine and are thinking of getting certified as a practitioner it’s a great opportunity to learn more about the CRA and see the board in action and get a feeling for the membership base. I have to say I was very impressed when I attended the AGM back in 2011 and that was when I signed up as a student member. Coming from a scientific background I wasn’t sure what to expect from a meeting of Reiki members (this world was all pretty new to me as I had just finished my Level 2). I was impressed by how the organization was run, had a great time meeting other attendees and was excited to have the experience of seeing auras of people when they were speaking. There was a presentation on some MS-related research that was being conducted in conjunction with the association. I saw a great talk on affirmations and went home with a door prize and was very glad I attended. There is a mini-market as well.
This year’s entertainment is a performance by Matthew Kocel. He is a local talent who is a throat singer and spiritual musician. Here is a video of him performing:
