Yvonne Esther Nieves  CHICAGO, IL
In 2014, I had a wonderful opportunity to present on the topics of transgenerational trauma and reiki* healing therapy at the 5th Annual Men & Women's Gathering, which took place at the Pima-Maricopa Indian Community in Arizona. My time there included providing a complimentary reiki level one class and attunements (an energetic empowerment) to members of the Pima-Maricopa and Hopi community. 

Creator is calling me back to Arizona, this time to travel directly to the Hopi community in order to provide reiki classes and training clinics to even more members of this community.

I am asking for your assistance in sponsoring approximately 16 members of the Indian community in receiving reiki classes (level one and two) attunements and instruction from me in late May 2015. Your contribution will result in the continuation the integration of reiki as another method of self-healing in this community. The new reiki practioners will also be trained in conducting reiki clinics so that they can continue to share their healing gifts with other community members.

Healing is an ongoing process. Our reiki is revolutionary, saves lives. Please take a moment to contribute to this community, and be a ripple that flows toward long-term change.

I thank you for your time and generous contributions.

Sincerely,

Yvonne Esther Nieves, RMT**

Thank you to everyone who supported this effort. Two participants, members of the Hopi community who are community healthcare workers, were able to receive their Level 2 Reiki attunements and certifications, as well as vital training in chanting and meditation, crystal and orgone therapy, and chakra integration and human anatomy. Discussion topics included social work, healing philosophies, Native tradition, religion and cosmology.

The next steps will to create healing spaces, including healing circles, clinics and other community healing exchanges where individuals with substance abuse issues and reproductive issues can be supported in the creation of a community healing space. The trained community members are looking to continue their education in the social services field as well as complete their Reiki Master Teacher training in the following year where they will begin to attune and certify community members to reiki.

Thank you all again for feeding the vision, and allowing me to take up the Reiki Flag of Healing for everyone concerned.
