The Twilight of Reiki  (TBD)


Like me, like you, we may have been drawn to the practice of Reiki believing that the light of Reiki can mysteriously erase our pain and suffering.  Yet as we reached for the light of Reiki, we realized that the light we yearned for also cast shadow.  Perhaps it is from the shadow that we see the light and learn to navigate in this plain field of light and shadow.  The one-day workshop will be an experiential workshop inviting students to be open hearted and open-minded to experience the light and shadow in our plain field.  There are no scripts for this class other than as we are.  [For Reiki Practitioners.]

Healing Ways for Cancer, Sunday, June 15, 2014

Reiki as healing ways for cancer offers people with cancer, their loved ones and caregivers the opportunity to live with more ease. One of the most profound challenges facing people with cancer is unexpressed mental, physical and emotional pain as well as fear of the unknown. For loved ones and caregivers, the hardest thing is standing by while their family member or patient suffers in silence. In this class, Reiki teacher and cancer survivor, Joanna Crespo will guide people dealing with cancer on any level through a series of tools, exercises and skills that will help you approach the illness more peacefully. It will help you interact with pain instead of hide from it. Through techniques like guided meditation, family constellation (or ancestral) resource exercises, chakra balancing, and gentle body dialogue, you become an active participant in the healing process.

Reflections in My Field, Saturday, November 22, 2014


​Our Field is a knowing field.  What are the sounds and images in our Field?  Who stands in our Field?  What if your interest can take shape and sound-out its teachings to you?  What would it said?  The theme of this workshop was inspired by my last workshop on the "Healing Ways for Cancer".  Life and Death took the floor, and Cancer gave its voice relevant to each class participant.  

Our Field is a moving field.  How much are we opened to new possibilities in our life?  My late Reiki teacher once said outside the ‘field of probability’, there is also a ‘field of possibility’ around us.  What if by excavating the field, we can increase the probability for new possibilities?  Come to this workshop with open mind and open questions and see what we may receive from our Field.

Location:    Reflections Center for Yoga, 227 East 24th Street, NYC, NY 10010
Time:  10am-5pm
Cost:  $95  [Cash, Check, or PayPal to yuanjoanna44@yahoo.com]
