As we try to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, I like many other have taken the decision to cease hands-on treatments for the time being. I am following government guidelines and will look forward to resuming normal service when it is deemed safe to do so.
Long time coming
However I am introducing some things that have been at the back of my mind for a long time, and now seems like a prudent time to bring out into the daylight. As a Holistic Therapist, working with the whole person, I feel I must find ways to share the energy work I do with you and offer relief and release from the confusion, uncertainty and possible distress of the current situation. Please feel free to share this email with friends, family, work colleagues or people in your community who would benefit from the contact and energy.
As many of you will remember I used to run regular meditation groups in Thurleigh and Northampton but as people’s lives have become busier they became less and less able to commit to regular sessions. I have often considered creating a way of doing this online and the current situation has really made look into the logistics of this. It is more important than ever for people to be able to access the beautiful power of meditation and the ability, with practice, that it has for helping us deal with difficult or stressful situations.
So I am delighted to launch my new meditation group – Medulla Meditation Group (there is a Facebook group of this name too) where you will be able to find details of the live sessions I will be holding on Zoom. Don’t worry if you’ve never used Zoom before, I will post a link up on the events page of this website and also on the Facebook group and you can just click it or copy and paste into your browser. There is an app that you can download but if you prefer not to then you can use it straight from the web page. As usual, if you have any questions or queries then please get in touch.
From next week I will run two half-hour sessions a week – on a Monday lunchtime and a Thursday evening, unfortunately I will not be able to provide tea and cake as I did with my previous, but perhaps you can have your own ready and we can still share the same vibe and conversations we used to have around the table, after our online practice.
This week (w/c 23rd March) I have been offering the groups for free whilst trialing software to run the live sessions on but after that will ask for an exchange of £5 per session (if however you are also self-employed or have lost your job or income especially in recent days then please do let me know, as I don’t want anyone to miss out, particularly when you need it the most).
I will publicise them as events on the Events page here on my website and also on my Facebook Page Medulla Holistic Therapies, so if you do not already follow me, please do so and to help me spread the word. Please would you be kind enough to share the events on your timelines, to friends, on groups or pages? I truly believe that these sessions will be beneficial to all but particularly to those who are self-isolating or are struggling with limited social contact. You may well be aware of people in this situation in your village or workplace who are not aware of me and what I do, so please share the details to as many people as you can.
With more of us going into self-isolation; a calming, healing energy therapy is a wonderful way to ease the strain and loneliness as well as help us deal with the emotional aspects of our current situation.
Thankfully, Reiki does not only have to be done in the hands-on manner; as an energy, it can easily be sent across any distance. From one side of the room to the other or across countries and continents, the effects of distance Reiki can be as relaxing and healing as when you’re having warm hands laid upon you.
No, it’s not the same as going to a beautiful treatment room, with lovely music and aromatherpay oils for a face to face treatment, but it can still be very soothing and equally effective.
Distance Reiki is like a concentrated version so sessions do not need to be as long and so I am now offering a 30 minutes session for an exchange of £20.
We would make an appointment and I would ask you to make yourself comfortable for that time either sitting or lying down and not to be disturbed. We can connect by phone, facetime, Whatsapp video or some equivalent to do the consultation part, then keep the connection whilst you get comfortable and relax and I send the Reiki to you. I will talk you into a relaxed state as I always do and afterwards we will review your experience, just like in the treatment room.
