Bears of Light

Reiki Service Project

For more info on our Reiki training see:

Bears of Light is a service project that all students of Reiki level one participate in as a part of their training and to enhancing their energetic connection to others.  Each student practices their reiki techniques and theory in the seminar by infusing a new, loving plush bear with love and light. These bears are then donated to children's hospitals, shelters or agencies that serve children in need of healing.

Each "Bear of Light" has been sponsored by donation from Heartwood Retreat Center in a "pay it forward" system of giving to the world.

β€œIt was an intense embrace, no awkwardness, no holding back, the kind of hug two people can only achieve after long intimacy, but anyone can give in an instant to a stuffed bear.”― Ada Palmer, Seven Surrenders
