Introducing our Reiki Ministry

by Reiki Leadership Team: Marty Beery, Harvey Beery, Donna Evans, Susan Gilmore, & Rev. Carolyne Mathlin

Reiki is a Japanese form of Laying on of Hands that connects you with Divine energy. Once a Reiki practitioner has been attuned to receive the Reiki energy, they simply allow themselves to be a channel for its healing flow. The Reiki energy guides itself to wherever it is needed.

Reiki promotes relaxation and peace and reduces stress so that the body’s natural healing energies can flow freely and abundantly. Reiki is safe, non-intrusive, and works only for your highest good.

Reiki has been an important part of our community for many years now. It is offered by several of our Prayer Chaplains on Sundays after service (look for people wearing the green ribbon that says “Reiki”). It is also offered at our monthly contemplative Sacred Circle of Light service.

Because Reiki is such an important part of our ministry, we recently came together in prayer and vision to explore how we could serve Unity of Tustin even more through the practice of Reiki. While we have always had people doing Reiki on behalf of Unity, what came to us was the idea to create an official Reiki Team. Being a Reiki Team member means:

· You have at least a Reiki 2 certificate
· You are a member of the church
· You are willing and available to serve in the settings where Reiki is offered, namely at the monthly Sacred Circle of Light service on the third Monday of the month
· You are invited to participate in monthly Reiki sessions at Unity of Tustin
· You are willing to use Reiki best practices determined by the Unity of Tustin Reiki Leadership Team
· You communicate with one of the Reiki Team Co-Leaders if you have questions or need to step away from the team

If you are interested in serving in our Reiki Ministry, please contact Marty or Harvey Beery, our new Reiki Team Co-Leaders. You can also email and your inquiry will be forwarded to them.

We are so excited to step into this new opportunity to serve our beloved community through the practice of our Reiki Team.
