Special Message to CRA members
May 25, 2015
I feel that it is necessary to clarify and reiterate to our members that the Canadian Reiki Association was founded to register and represent all Canadian Reiki Association practitioners, teachers and students of all styles of REIKI.
As you are aware, we have a Code of Conduct that has been emailed/mailed to you previously. It is my job as President to protect the members and to carry out the purpose for which we were created.
Specifically, we have no connection whatsoever to any organization practicing hypnotherapy, psychotherapy or any other modality. As you are aware, there appears to be a dispute between some Hypnotherapists and the College of Registered Psychotherapist and Registered Mental Health Therapists of Ontario. This dispute has nothing to do with our Association, and we will not be drawn into this dispute because to do so could be damaging to the Canadian Reiki Association and its individual members.
We practice Reiki for our enjoyment and for the benefit of others, and we continue to experience concrete results as a result of our practice. In effect we make people feel better, which is a desirable goal. We will let nothing interfere with this goal.
It has been brought to my attention that there have been untruths said about me which have no foundation whatsoever. I have always performed to the best of my ability to foster and encourage the goals of our association.
I have consulted with a lawyer who advises me if untruths are said about me, such as defamation of character, or if the Canadian Reiki Association Board is maligned, that I have a right to commence an action against the person speaking untruths and that I would be entitled to substantial damage.
In summary, I do not wish to get involved in any future confrontations with people who don’t support our Association, and I suggest you also avoid such confrontation and continue to read our e-blasts and newsletters. I will continue to act in your best interests to ward off any attempts to weaken or disable our Canadian Reiki Association.
President, Canadian Reiki Association
