That night after the clinic was the first time, in a long time, that I went to bed without fear and anxiety. — Jeanette Besosa
We held the very first Reiki clinic at the JCC in Manhattan in May 2007, and the Reiki clinic has served the public and the Reiki community continuously since then.
Reiki clinic offers sessions for the public
If you haven’t had any Reiki training and want to experience a Reiki session, the JCC Reiki Clinic is a safe environment where you can do so.
Last night, right after the reiki clinic, I felt relaxed and still felt the warmth from the practitioners’ hands. When I woke up this morning, I felt very different…almost lighter, as if some heavy negative energy had been lifted off me. Definitely something great happened because I can feel the difference already! — Erika B.
The public is invited to book a half-hour appointment that includes orientation and a Reiki session, usually with two practitioners, depending on attendance. Please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment for orientation.
Whether you have never experienced Reiki and want to give it a try, or you are looking for an occasional boost to your well-being, you are welcome.
Reiki practice for anyone with at least First degree Reiki training — ALL lineages welcome!
Are you are already trained to practice Reiki at any level? The Reiki clinic is an invaluable opportunity to practice table treatments in pairs in a supported setting in which you can enjoy practicing without the burden of communicating.
Reiki practitioners of all lineages and practice styles are welcome in our community!
This is a unique and safe opportunity to:
- increase your practice experience,
- participate in a mainstream Reiki event,
- meet new Reiki buddies and
- become part of a diverse Reiki community.
Every practitioner also receives a treatment, and the practitioners gather at the end for Reiki conversation — and chocolate!
Reiki clinic logistics and registration
The JCC Reiki Clinic takes place on the first Thursday of each month (excluding holidays).
JCC Reiki Clinic for practitioners and the public meets on the first Thursdays of each month unless there is a holiday. The clinic meets on May 3 and June 7. Due to the July Fourth holiday, the July clinic will be held Thursday, July 12.
The JCC in Manhattan is located at 334 Amsterdam Avenue on the southwest corner of West 76th Street, New York, NY 10023.
Pre-registration guarantees your space — and forever endears you to me! — but you are also welcome to take your chances and show up. We do our best to accommodate everyone but can only guarantee you will receive a Reiki session if you register in advance.
If you are a Reiki practitioner who would like to introduce your friends to Reiki, but are not comfortable practicing on your own, the clinic is a safe environment where your friends will be well cared for.
There is a $20 fee for all participants, both Reiki practitioners and people coming for a Reiki session only.
The public can register for a Reiki session at 7 PM or 7:30 PM on the JCC Manhattan website or by phone 646.505.5708. Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment for orientation.
Important information for Reiki clinic practitioners
This is a public clinic offered in a respected community center. To maintain the highest standards, all practitioners meet for orientation before every clinic.
Please arrive early if you have not pre-registered. The registration desk is often busy at that time, and orientation starts downstairs at 6:15 PM.
If you are not downstairs in time for the orientation — we are all very busy and things happen — you are welcome to receive a Reiki session, but you will not be able to practice with us on that particular evening.
If you register in advance, after passing through the JCC security, you can either walk straight ahead to the elevators and come down to L1, or make a right and walk down one flight using the staircase that starts at the street level window.
It is disruptive if practitioners leave early, so please only register if you are able to stay until we finish, by 9:15 PM.
Reiki practitioners can click here to register on the JCC Manhattan website or call 646-505-5708.
If you are a Reiki practitioner who will be practicing with us for the first time, please email me that you are coming.
