Volunteer Opportunity: Hands to Hearts

The MRC has once again been invited to participate in Stand Down, a Department of Veterans Affairs event providing community and services for homeless Veterans. We are looking for a few of our members to volunteer their Reiki hands to touch some hearts.

Stand Downs are organized across the country and are typically one to three day events providing services to homeless Veterans such as food, shelter, clothing, health screenings, VA and Social Security benefits counseling, and referrals to a variety of other necessary services, such as housing, employment and substance abuse treatment. Stand Downs are collaborative events, coordinated between local VAs, other government agencies, and community agencies who serve the homeless.

Several members of the MRC volunteered for this event last year, providing free 10-minute Reiki treatments to attendees. We are honored to have been asked to participate again this year to share Reiki with as many Vets as possible to help address symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder and other physical and emotional pain these former defenders of our country suffer from.

We hope the effects of our sharing will also help the VA to recognize Reiki is an excellent way to address the mental and physical health issues facing our Veterans.

For more, see our video recap of last year's event on the MRC blog.

    Hey gang, we already have several MRC volunteers for this event and are just looking for a couple more people to make sure we're well-staffed throughout the day. If you would like to join us, please email me at [masked] with the times you'd be able to attend. Jodie-kay, please drop me a line. Debbie, the event is open to all Reiki channels and would be an excellent experience for someone new to build confidence and use Reiki to help folks in real need. Let me know if you're interested and when you can be on-site. Thanks!

    Is this open to those who have only been attuned to Level I?
