Bringing Reiki, life and wellbeing to Galashiels and the rest of the Scottish Borders

Gendai Reiki Ho founder Doi Sensei comes to Europe

It is with a mixture of delight and sadness that I bring you news of a Gendai Reiki Ho International Gathering in Madrid.  Delight, because Doi Sensei will be travelling to Europe to share his wisdom with us once again.  Sadness, because this will be the last time Doi Sensei intends leaving Japan for Reiki activities.

The event is being organised by Rika Saruhashi.  I met Rika in Denmark in 2011 when she translated Doi Sensei’s words first into Spanish and then into English for us – a remarkable undertaking!  At this event Rika will translate into Spanish, and there will be simultaneous translation into English.  Sadly, our dear friend Fumi Koji is unable to translate into English for us this time.

There are two consecutive events on offer in Madrid:

10th and 11th October 2015
– Doi Sensei will teach an Exclusive Workshop on Traditional Reiki.
This workshop is open to all practitioners of Reiki of Level 2 and higher, regardless of the system of Reiki in which you trained.

12th October 2015
– Doi Sensei will teach a half day Workshop for Gendai Reiki Masters only
You are invited to present any questions you may have in advance, so that the Workshop may address the needs of the Gendai Reiki Master community.

The venue
is Escorial-Natura Convention and Resort, Monte Abantos in El Escorial, Madrid.  El Escorial is a Unesco World Heritage Site, and looks well worth a visit.

Accommodation is in 2 bedroom chalets, each bedroom sleeping 2 people, a 5th person may be accommodated on a sofa bed in the living area.  The cost is per bungalow per night, not per person, so this presents an opportunity to keep costs to a minimum.  Limited cooking is possible in the chalets as long as everyone is agreeable.  Otherwise meals are available on a full or half board basis.  There is an option for caravans and tents, please see the attached for more information and costs.

All prices are inclusive of VAT
* there is a €50 registration, which is deducted from the total fee.
Travel fees are not included.

It is in your interests to register early – before 15th March if possible – as the cost is significantly less for early birds.  Travel is usually considerably cheaper if booked in advance too.

It is rare for a member of the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai to meet with us and teach in the West.  This may be our last opportunity to welcome Doi Sensei to Europe, to sit in the presence of the founder of Gendai Reiki Ho, to hear him teach and to connect with his extremely high vibration energy.  It is your opportunity to put your questions to Doi Sensei in person, and to receive the benefit of both his wisdom and the results of his researches into Usui Reiki Ryoho’s history.

Please see the attached documents for more information.  I have attempted to draw all the salient details together in this post, but please forgive me if I have omitted something important or made errors.

Booking is direct to the organisers, but please let me know if you intend to go as it would be good to co-ordinate our accommodation and perhaps our travel also.

I look forward to seeing you en Espana!
