FREE REIKI...Free Reiki on the 1st Friday of every month from 6:00 – 6:45 pm at Venture Inward, 568 Columbia Turnpike, #16 VanDenHouten Square (back entrance), East Greenbush. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress; and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Energy healers and Reiki practitioners work together to help balance and regenerate calling upon angels to assist in energy work to relieve stress and bring renewed wellness to body/mind/spirit.
