2022 In-Person Reiki Retreat

For Reiki Practitioners at All Levels

Sunday, July 10, 2022
Atlanta, GA

Your everyday life is stressful, hectic and full of endless to-do lists.

Taking a break from constant busyness to retreat for a day of healing, connection, and rejuvenation is a necessity, not a luxury.

This retreat is designed to restore, refresh, and reinvigorate you back into balance with like-minded people. You’ll emerge feeling calmer, more centered, and equipped with new Reiki tools to help you better manage stress and overwhelm.

Are you ready to invite peace, harmony, and joy back into your life?

Have you been…

  • Feeling stuck or unmotivated in your Reiki practice?
  • Seeking a way to ease the overwhelm and take better care of yourself?
  • Craving inspiration, new Reiki tools, and a renewed connection with Reiki?
  • Longing to live in the present moment and strengthen your intuition?
  • Missing the smiling faces of your Reiki family?

Then it’s time to reconnect in person!

It’s time to honor your spiritual needs. It’s time to take a well-deserved break. After a long time of virtual gathering, it’s time to fill your cup and retreat together in a sacred shared space.

2022 Reiki Retreat

“We balance DOING and BEING, giving and receiving, caring for others and for ourselves.”

– Michal Spiegelman, The Beacons of Change manifesto.

2022 Reiki Retreat Agenda – July 10, 2022 
2022 Reiki Retreat

Welcome & Opening Ceremony
9:30 – 10:00 am

Join Michal Spiegelman and the Beacons of Change Team as they welcome you to the 2022 Reiki Retreat with the opening ceremony. This is a special opportunity to align with universal energy, the healing power of the earth, and your Reiki sisters and brothers.

2022 Reiki Retreat

Intentional Movement with Reiki
10:00 – 10:30 am

Combining Reiki with gentle stretching integrates your mental and physical wellbeing. Guided movement with Dawn will help you release unwanted energy, get centered and calm both body and mind.

2022 Reiki Retreat

Grounding in Nature
10:30 – 11:00 am

Living “The Reiki Way” means staying mindful in the present moment – “just for today”. Practicing a walking meditation and Reiki-infused grounding techniques in nature will help you become more present by embodying your deep connection to the earth.

2022 Reiki Retreat

Self-Reiki Practice
11:00 – 11:30 am

Your self-Reiki practice is your sanctuary. Treating yourself with Reiki in a guided environment supported by like-minded people will elevate your practice in a powerful way. This practice is focused on making your intuition alive while practicing Reiki.

2022 Reiki Retreat

Energy Clearing Rituals
11:30 am – noon

You’ll learn and experience three clearing tools to add to your “Reiki toolbox.” Clearing energy that doesn’t serve you to make room for new, pure energy is critical when you’re a giver who takes on energy from others.

2022 Reiki Retreat

Lunch Break
Noon – 1:30 pm

There are multiple restaurants within walking distance of the retreat space. Feel free to bring your own lunch or explore one of the local eateries nearby.

2022 Reiki Retreat

Chair Reiki in Partners
1:30 – 2:00 pm

Receiving Reiki is a different experience than treating yourself. Give Reiki to your partner and then allow yourself to receive to experience a calming, balancing effect on your mind, body and spirit. This practice will focus on receiving intuitive guidance from within while giving your partner Reiki.

2022 Reiki Retreat

Group Reiki
2:30 – 3:00 pm

Aristotle said, “The Whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” There is nothing more powerful than practicing Reiki in community. You’ll be part of a circle of love and light that deepens your individual healing and serves as a blanket of compassion for the collective.

2022 Reiki Retreat

Q & A, Announcements & News
3:00 – 3:30 pm

Michal and the Beacons of Change Team will share some exciting news about upcoming Reiki events and will answer your questions on the spot.

Plus, we have a special gift you’ll be excited to receive from us!

2022 Reiki Retreat

Breathing into Reiki with Lisa Jones*
3:30 – 4:30 pm

Conscious breathing practices raise and balance energy, bring the organ systems (endocrine, respiratory, circulatory, digestive, and structural) into spontaneous alignment and enable you to be a more effective Reiki practitioner.

2022 Reiki Retreat

Closing Circle
4:30 – 5:30 pm

This beautiful closing circle illuminates the light within you and anchors the collective with divine love and gratitude. You will transition back to your daily life with a newfound sense of appreciation, renewal, and peace.

“Healing together outshines healing alone.”
– Michal Spiegelman, The Beacons of Change manifesto.

“It was exactly what I needed to have the courage to take my work out into the world!

You have been such a powerful influence in my life, Michal. Your devotion to helping others is so clear. Thank you for a fantastic way to reconnect with you and your work.”

Bess Park

“I felt a real connection with everyone in the room even though we’d never met!

It was so wonderful to finally experience your energy in the same room, Michal! I loved meeting you and the Beacons of Change team, reconnecting with Renee, my Reiki Buddy, and making new friends. I enjoyed all of the activities; they each helped me feel recharged. A highlight was taking the Journey into Your Soul with you and receiving intuitive messages.

I’ve learned so much from you, Michal. Now, I am able to catch myself from spiraling with negative feelings and be kinder to my inner child. I feel so blessed to have met you because your light has helped me find mine. I’ve found my happy place again!”

“It was so special to meet so many incredible women in person!

What a lovely day. I appreciated learning the clearing rituals and the Reiki dance was such a fun surprise! Thank you for the beautiful gifts, the healing crystals, and the candle. Both are precious to me.”

Lynn Mack

“I loved it all!

Dancing, walking, and breathing with Reiki were amazing. I was really touched when everyone shared their altar items. Chair Reiki with partners was fun!”

Stephanie Sponseller

“I was amazed at the synchronicity of the entire day.

The retreat was so wonderful; I found meaning in everything. I immediately connected with the women there since we share similar stories. I struggle with taking on other people’s energy, so I loved learning new ways to cleanse and clear myself.

Giving Reiki to partners and sharing feedback was terrific. I also loved the Reiki with movement. I came home feeling so renewed. Thank you and your excellent team for such a great event!”

Cyndi Washington

“The community and energy were fantastic!

Thank you for such a wonderful day. I loved meeting everyone. Reiki hug!”

Patricia Buford

“I am thankful that Michal and her team made this day so special.

It was a beautiful retreat spent with other Reiki Beacons. I got to reconnect with Reiki and learned a lot about the importance of breathing.”

Sangeeta Mehra

“The opportunity for women to share in the moment was a true gift.

I enjoyed every aspect of the retreat; it had diverse energy with a relaxing atmosphere. Knowing that we are not alone in our journey gave a sense of camaraderie and community. I liked the different practices the team led us through; the sounds of the bells made it very comfortable to raise our vibration. The breathing techniques made it possible to find clarity and be genuinely present.

This was the perfect way for all the women who have taken virtual classes together to meet in person. Meeting you in person, Michal, was the best part since Zoom doesn’t do justice to the soul, love, and light that you share. You have made an extraordinary impact on my life.
I look forward to more events in the future, as you are a gifted teacher to all of us.

Jackie Reginello

“The retreat helped me rededicate myself to my Reiki practice.

It was a beautiful gathering with other Reiki practitioners and having Michal lead us in many different healing methods. I learned to connect with Reiki more intuitively, which reminded me of aspects of my nursing training years ago.

I have taken several Qigong classes in the past, but it wasn’t until this retreat that I was able to make the connection between Reiki, breathing, and movement!”

Kathryn Heller

“I’m so glad I was able to attend!

The retreat was definitely a special day. What a gift! I loved meeting everyone and sharing the Reiki experience together. Thank you, Michal and the Beacons of Change team, for a truly enjoyable and healing experience. I look forward to the next in-person event!”

Jeanne Sharbuno

We’ve missed you, beautiful Beacons:
this retreat is as meaningful to us as it will be for you.
