Reiki Backpacking

I have started Reiki healing and meditation backpacking for fellow backpackers and outdoor enthusiasts in Northern Virginia. My vision is to share Reiki and the benefits of natural healing while engaging in day hikes, backpacking trips and outdoor adventures with other like-minded people. Reiki energy healing takes many forms including active meditations and enjoying quiet times in nature. Reiki backpacking trips will range from beginner to advanced to accommodate all levels of backpackers. You do not need to know Reiki or have a previous experience with Reiki. I will teach you all about Reiki and we will experience Reiki share around the campfire! We will share nature's healing energy through guided silent meditations! Reiki Backpack adventures will take place during the weekends within a 50 miles radius from the Washington DC area. Please join my Northern Virginia Reiki Elements meetup to sign up for Reiki backpacking events.
