The 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th Glasgow Reiki Gathering will once again be offering a donation to Rachael's work with Tikondwe Youth Project in Domasi, Malawi, Africa ~ https://www.facebook.com/groups/357910537612625/

Rachael spent some time in Africa in 2012 and her work with this charity is ongoing.. Information on sone of the work Rachael is involved with is further down this page.





We will also be offering a donation to Bumblebee Conservation Trust  to help save our bees ... and helping to save the sound of summer :)  www.bumblebeeconservation.org facebook page  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Bumblebee-Conservation-Trust/184323594931922 

The Bumblebee Conservation Trust was established because of serious concerns about the 'plight of the bumblebee'. In the last 80 years our bumblebee populations have crashed. Two species have become nationally extinct and several others have declined dramatically.

Bumblebees are familiar and much-loved insects that pollinate our crops and wildflowers, so people are rightly worried. We have a vision for a different future in which our communities and countryside are rich in bumblebees and colourful flowers, supporting a diversity of wildlife and habitats for everyone to enjoy. A growing number of committed supporters are helping our small team of staff make a big difference. We have over 7,000 members and are growing fast.


Thanks to the generosity of all who attended...we have also donated to The Emoto Peace Project.
This Reiki Gathering we have donated to The Emoto Peace Project... bringing forward Dr. Emotos' messages regarding the importance of our Water via his Childrens book ~ The Message from Water Childrens Version.   This Reiki Gathering has managed to pay for 1000 copies to be distributed among our schools and libraries in and around Glasgow... and also to everyone who attended The 5th Reiki Gathering on 1st September  and Dr. Emotos Talk in Glasgow in October 2013  more information available on http://emoto-peace-project.com/en/dr-emotos-message/
