The Reiki Center of Greater Washington is working on its evolution to a stage where it supports other Reiki centers worldwide. We call this Reiki Community Center International.
We had planned initially for this evolution to be a physical move. People told us that the Washington, DC suburbs where we are located now were too heavy energetically, too dense. We explored a number of other locations, looking for just the right energy. At one point, we thought that Seattle, Washington would be the place; at another, Boulder, Colorado; at a third in the recent past, Sedona, Arizona. We were in fact ready to make a move to Sedona and looking forward to a new location filled with golden energy and the beautiful red rocks and vortexes.
David was meditating in 2013 as our plans were moving forward, and a guidance voice came to me. It said: “If you begin to live your life as you would in Sedona, to use your time and energy the way you would there, the energies of Sedona will begin to come to you, wherever you are.” David found this a very interesting message, coming just a few weeks before they were going to put our house on the market.
About two weeks later, David’s partner (now late husband) Steve was diagnosed with cancer. It was clear that they would need to remain in Maryland for the foreseeable future. When they received the diagnosis in September 2013, Steve asked what this would change for them. David said, “It means that we must stay here until things settle down. It means our plans must change.” At the same time, David began to take the advice of his guide seriously and started to hike in the mornings, usually with their dogs. He found beautiful places to hike: Lake Needwood and Falls Grove Parks. And he began to realize what the guidance said was true, he was home wherever he lived and the Earth can bring whatever energy is needed or wanted at a given moment.
In 2014, feeling much better, David and Steve got married in September and things expanded once again. Three years later, Steve’s battle with the cancer resumed and began to become more and more invasive. Steve fought the cancer for almost six years before transitioning in 2019. Since 2019, David has been sticking a bit closer to home. He is open to travel teaching or courses taught via Zoom, if it is mutually agreeable. If you are interested in meeting us or scheduling a healing or a class, he would love to connect.
