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 dsc_0310went 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…

dsc_0318What 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.

August – September 2016

Renovation and opening of my practice in Chalezeule

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…
