Workshops for National Gathering 2011

2011 Gathering in Regent's Park, London

Right, that’s sorted out now. For our first ever Reiki Evolution National Gathering at Regent’s College, London [October 29th] we are having six workshops, three in the morning and three in the afternoon. We had offers of eight workshops from my team of teachers, so I canvassed all 80 people who had booked to see what their preference was, and this was the result. The six workshops at the 2011 gathering will be:

Discover your intuitive self (Tina Shaw)
Health at your fingertips (Hannah Shine)
Working with sound (Mel Diamond)
Taoist yin yoga (Sue Norman)
Shamanic healing ritual (Kay Gillard)
Reiki and crystals (Linda Vickers)

All I need to do now is to work out who is going to attend which workshop, based on their preferences, which is giving me more of a headache than I had anticipated, so I know what I am going to be doing this Bank Holiday weekend: sitting on the floor surrounded by little pieces of paper, shifting them around from one pile to another as I try and accommodate everyone’s preferences as far as I can without blowing a gasket! 🙂

And I still have to announce what speakers we are going to have. There will be one or two. So watch this space!

We were overwhelmed by the response from Reiki Evolution students who wanted to attend. Since this was the first event of it’s kind we didn’t know what size venue to book – there’s no point in booking the Albert Hall if there’s just going to be tumbleweed drifting across the empty rows! – so it was a big surprise to find that all 80 tickets sold out in three days. In 2012 – and I’m fairly sure we’ll repeat the event – we’ll book a bigger venue!

  1. Thanks Taggart, really looking forward to it. Good luck with sorting out who’s attending what. Thank you so much for organising!

    Is there anywhere that people can register their interest to book for future Reiki Gatherings?

    Louise. 🙂

  2. Assuming there is going to be a 2012 gathering, I will announce it in really good time next spring through this blog, and the ezine, and on the Reiki Evolution facebook page. I’ll give early notice to the people who are on the waiting list for the 2011 gathering so they can grab places before it’s opened up to all other Reiki Evolution students, and I’ll let you teachers know in good time so you can flag it up in your individual ezines too. And I’ll book a bigger venue!

  3. Sounds like a plan! I know lots of my students will be keen to attend the 2012 one… I didn’t manage to advertise this to them in time this year – it filled up so fast, nearly missed out myself! How about the NEC next time?! (hehe)

  4. Well, if we’re going to take over the world with Reiki then we’ll need to be at the NEC at some stage I suppose… 🙂
