Reiki Presentation at Wilmington Memorial Library – January 8th

Reiki Master Joanna Scaparotti will be speaking about “The Healing Power of Reiki” at the Wilmington Memorial Library at 7:00 pm on Thursday, January 8, 2015.  Reiki is a Japanese practice for health and well-being. The founder of Reiki created a system of natural healing for practitioners to help them bring mind, body and spirit into balance for optimal health and well-being through practicing daily exercises and meditation, as well as applying spiritual principles in their lives. In addition to self-practice, Reiki practitioners are able to facilitate others in bringing mind, body and spirit into balance for health, too. For most people, the first introduction to Reiki is that it is a service available at a hospital, wellness center or spa, but it is so much more than a bodywork technique. In this program, we will explore the history and context of Reiki, the principles and practice, and finish with an experiential exercise and Reiki demonstration with the help of Joanna’s Reiki students.  All are welcome. Register here.

Wilmington Memorial Library is located at 175 Middlesex Ave. (Rte. 62) Wilmington, MA 01887
