Raised on the Southern Oregon Coast, now retired on the Southern Oregon Coast. I was a hard of hearing child who grew up to be a deafened adult. I share and write about deafness, hearing loss and other things I find interesting. I am a 50 something year old woman who could be anyone's mother, grandmother or friend. I've traveled the U.S., and I've lived in Europe. I'm currently residing near the beach with Fabulous Husband and 11 year old son. ~ Joyce Edmiston

Are You A Deaf or ASL Fluent Reiki Master?
Today's post is a request from someone learning Reiki who wants to share Reiki with the Deaf and hard of hearing community. They eventually would teach Reiki so other Deaf and hard of hearing can become practitioners and teachers, too. If you are interested in helping, leave your name and email address in the comment space below. All comments are private and moderated. Your information will not be published.
I am looking for information from Master Level Reiki III who is either Deaf or fluent ASL. I have taken the Reiki Levels 1 and 2 classes, and I am preparing to take level 3 this year. I hope to be a Master Teacher next year.
I need to find a Deaf or ASL fluent Reiki Master to help mentor me with the phrases and signs regarding the Reiki vocabulary and teachings. Besides working with Deaf clients who will come to me for sessions, I also eventually want to come to that place in Level 3 so I can teach Deaf students interested in becoming Reiki Masters. I feel my mission is to bring Reiki to my local community, so they may continue and carry the teachings to other Deaf.
If you are a Reiki Level 3 Reiki Master and fluent in ASL, please leave a comment below for Xpressive Handz. The information you leave will be moderated by her and kept private. I will contact you at the email address you provide with the phrase "Reiki ASL" in the subject line.
