Gratitude is the soul of the word “thank you” *
Gratitude is a feeling that fills the heart and makes life more radiant, more vibrant.
Today is a special night: May’s full moon offers us an eclipse… I take advantage of this special energy to express my gratitude to the different people who have accompanied me or accompany me currently in this new life after almost 5 years of activity (non-exhaustive list without hierarchy between the persons mentioned!):

Last September, I have been attuned as a Karuna ® Reiki I & II practitioner.
Karuna ® Reiki was developped by William L. Rand, Usui Reiki Master. It is called as well “Reiki of Compassion”.
The meaning of Karuna donnée par W. L. Rand sur le site “The International Center for Reiki Training” is the following:
Karuna is a Sanskrit word and is used in Hinduism and Buddhism. It is translanted to mean any action that is taken to diminish the suffering of others and could also be translated as “compassionate action.” When individuals experience enlightenment, they report that all beings are known as one. Therefore, it is natural to extend compassionate action or Karuna to everyone without distinction because we are all one. As we help others and aid them in their healing process, all beings benefit. Because of the oneness of all beings, it is understood that Karuna is not only extended to others out of love, but also because it is an entirely logical thing to do. In the same way that you would want to heal your own wounds, you would also want the wounds of others to heal. It is also stated in the Buddhist literature that Karuna must be accompanied by parjna or wisdom in order to have the right effect.
Karuna is the motivating quality of all enlightened beings who are working to end suffering on Earth. They continually send an unlimited amount of healing energy and guidance to us, but not all are receptive to it. As you develop Karuna in yourself, not only are you helping others, but you also become more receptive to the Karuna that is being sent by all enlightened beings. Thus your healing is quickened as well.
Karuna Reiki® opens you to work more closely with all enlightened beings. This includes those enlightened ones who are physically present as well as those in spirit.
Karuna® Reiki is totally additional to Usui Reiki.
A big thank you to CB, NS and SR for their confidence ; they are the first people who received healing during the 3 first opening days.
End of April, for my birthday, I was attuned on the 3rd level and became an Usui Reiki Master.
Beginning of May, I went to Egypt with Oasis Voyage, along with an international group, for the Wezak celebration in Cairo with Don Ernesto Ortiz. Every visited site corresponded to a specific alignment on chakras, with very strong moments in energy:
At the end of May, I attended the 12th French Congress of Usui Reiki that gathered in Evian 450 Reiki users (professionals or not); it allowed me to participate in numerous activities, to work on therapeutic sounds, to discover future scientific communications about Reiki, to exchange with peers and to go back home with new tools as the biomusic that accompanies from now on my care.
Today, I continue to discover the unlimited world of energy and to train to move forward on my personal and spiritual fulfillment path and to offer quality care to the people in demand.
By the end of September, my initiation into the levels 1 and 2 of Karuna ® Reiki is planned .
My most sincere thanks to the numerous people who trusted me and came to receive care.
And welcome to all those who wish to discover a Reiki session and its beneficial effects…
The Tree of Life
To personalize my practice, I ordered the drawing of a tree trunk with its roots and branches to Dany L., an artist that I had the great pleasure to meet at her place in Saône.
We went together to buy a big board on which she would paint the picture. First setback, the size of the board was 3-cm too wide to go into my car! Fortunately, Jacques, her husband, came to our rescue with blankets, belts and carrier straps to fasten it on the roof.
When the work was dry, Thierry and I went to pick it up and drive it from Saône to Chalezeule by the road of La Malate. We can say that we drove like a snail with the board fixed upon the roof to avoid it flying away with the breath of the air…
What a great pleasure to finally install this painting in the practice, as it means a lot to me. Actually, the tree symbolizes the Cosmos alive, regenerating ceaselessly. Source of physical fertility, psychological protection and spiritual awakening, it is a beneficial symbol of the life in perpetual evolution.
This work is a co-creation with the people who receive Reiki care: they can, if they wish, before leaving, apply one or more fingerprints with colors they choose – colors of chakras – to create and enlarge the foliage of this tree.
Dany, thank you from the bottom of my heart to have spontaneously agreed to contribute to the creation of the atmosphere of my Reiki place.
I gave Reiki healing in a spare room when I decided to create a place dedicated to Reiki’s activities.
I had first think about implementing a wooden chalet in the garden. This solution needed significant investments and work: large chalet with waiting room and toilets, pouring a concrete slab and utilities (electricity, water and evacuation, heating…).
Thanks to Annabelle, Pauline and Éliane (thanks to you!), I found a place to implement my practice: a 16-m2 room in a Center where other practitioners were located and where activities were held (yoga, biodanza, Women Circle…) with a waiting room and toilets, near to bus and tramway stops and with a free large parking lot!
I started the renovation work mid- August in order to open on September 1st, 2016.
Thanks to you, Régine, for the long hours you spent helping me painting (and not only the walls! I’m awarding you with the recognition as the Queen who painted all the pipes), sealing the holes, tiding up, disturbing, cleaning, perspiring, giving recommendations, sharing, laughing, singing… You have enchanted these 15 intense days!
Thanks to Thierry for his understanding, his patience, his cleverness and all the finishes that I would not have made by my own…
I wished to offer everybody a comfortable, intimate space, where one could feel as in a cocoon and spend 90 mn timeless, for a real break of well-being…
