Calandra Center for Health & Wellness (CCHW), in Schaumburg, offers quarterly Reiki Play Days, at which participants can practice reiki together through guided meditations and chanting. The next session is being held from 9 to 11 a.m., December 16. These gatherings introduce traditional Japanese reiki practices to those that may never have tried them. All levels of experience and reiki lineage are welcome to become part of this community of practitioners, including those that are new to this practice.

Unlike at a reiki share, there is no hands-on healing among participants. Rather, the delight and supportiveness of being together helps attendees discover what a personal reiki practice is like; the steps they can take to develop one for themselves, if they so desire; and how to embody the energy of reiki in everyday life.

Traditional Japanese reiki in the lineage of Usui Reiki Ryoho is practiced and taught at CCHW. Teri Calandra is a registered practitioner and teacher with the Shibumi International Reiki Association.
