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.

Reiki Blessings,

Bonnie Smith
President, Canadian Reiki Association

Dear CRA Members,
The following is provided for your information:

Excerpts from the College of Psychotherapy

More details on: www.crpo.ca

Psychotherapy Act Proclaimed!

On March 31, 2015, the transitional Council was advised by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) that the Psychotherapy Act, 2007 would come into force on April 1, 2015, thereby creating the new College of Registered Psychotherapists and Registered Mental Health Therapists of Ontario (CRPO). In addition, Council learned that proclamation of the controlled act of psychotherapy has not been proclaimed into force at this time.

Postponement of the controlled act of psychotherapy

Many will be wondering about the implications of this postponement and why it is necessary. Given that the controlled act is very broad, it has caused many mental health service providers to see themselves as possibly involved in performing this activity, thus requiring registration with the new College. Postponement of the controlled act will allow time to develop a better understanding of its meaning and implications. In the meantime, child and youth workers, addiction counsellors and mental health workers may continue to provide services without concerns about the proposed controlled act.

Excerpt from the a letter posted on the National Guild of Hypnotist

More details on: http://www.mississauganghchapter.ca

“While the party circulating this letter is free to attempt to persuade the Ontario government to change its position about who may offer medical or mental health services. We do not think such a campaign is necessary and are dubious about its chance of success.”
