2019 Reiki Retreat at Sea Wrap-Up

Hello Beings of Light,

I just need to take a moment to reflect on the Circle of Light’s first Healing Cruise. We’ve been back for a little over a week, and I’m still integrating what I learned and experienced.

First of all, we had an amazing group of healers! It may have been small, but it was the perfect test run. Each person there was able to learn, contribute, and support in their own unique way.

One of the messages we got early on was in the form of a group tarot card reading. The card that jumped out of the deck held the image of Peter Pan sailing the Pirate Ship and Wendy, John, and Michael flying along with their happy thoughts. We got the message loud and clear that even though we were there to heal and grow, we were also there to have fun. And even while that had been my concept from the very beginning, it was a great reminder to all of us about being present with whatever we are doing in that given moment. We could be serious and learn a deep lesson at one time and within a nearby time and space be free to embrace the playfulness of being on a cruise ship.


Some of my personal favorite moments were as we gathered for evening Circle on the top deck, right around sunset. The first night two of us arrived just before the red glow of the sun dipped below the horizon. It was a magickal blessing to begin our journey together.

On the last night, we lingered far longer than any of us intended to after the Reiki Share. We basked in the glow of one another and shared more and more.

When we finally parted ways, I returned to the top deck, walking alone under the moon. I gave thanks for this long-awaited journey and for the many journeys yet to come.
