‘Free Reiki Morning’ event was held on October 14, 2018 with the help of Small Neighborhood Grant in Westend. Reiki is a Japanese self care practice to promote a sense of deep calm and tranquility. Posters were posted along the Davie and Denman Street, in the shops and and also at coffee shops and well-being related businesses, as well as Gordon Neighborhood House and WorkBC City Center locations. 5 Westend residents attended the event, and were given a free introduction about Reiki and its origin. Afterwards a Reiki experience through guided meditation was given. Participants expressed their feedback as “deep calm”, “very relaxed”, and “excellent joyful energy” after the event. Due to the very positive feedback received, it is now being considered to make this a weekly or bi-weekly regular event for the benefit of the community members.
