Facilitated by Paul and Susan Mitchell, with Marta Getty.
The Masters Gathering 2008 was facilitated by Susan Mitchell alongside Marta Getty who was facilitating the Student Seminar. Their theme was 'Earn Your Living Honestly: Realising "the Secret Method that Summons Happiness.*"
Imagine having a truly happy mind, undisturbed by external events or internal turmoil! That's a goal really worthy of time and effort.
This year at Buckland Hall, we considered what it is to 'Earn your living honestly'. We explored this fourth principle in meditation and small and large group discussions and took it into our group treatments, giving ourselves space to consider its breadth and and meaning in our personal and community life. Along the way we might have even encountered a few of the obstacles that keep us from realising it.

This year we were thrilled to have Paul and Susan Mitchell, together with Marta Getty, facilitating the various sessions. This made for a fabulous series of events!
The Main Gathering
Paul Mitchell facilitated the sessions of the Main Gathering weekend. Anyone who has attended events led by Paul previously will know how stimulating and worthwhile the experience can be.
As well as sessions with Paul there was a diversity of events happening, with time to socialise, have fun, and share Reiki. This weekend was a great time for all with Reiki to come together, honouring, sharing, giving and receiving just as our ‘spiral’ opposite depicts, and perhaps leave with the benefit of new insight, and maybe some new friends!
The Masters Gathering
Susan Mitchell facilitated the Masters Gathering. Susan has a huge experience in the world of Reiki, and we were excited to welcome her to this event. The TRA Masters Gathering provides the rare chance to spend time in the company of fellow Masters. and is open to Masters of all lineages and you don’t have to be a member of the Association to attend. This was an opportunity for a diversity of Masters to share their knowledge and experience with one another, and it provided a unique occasion where Masters ‘new’ and ‘old’ could develop a deeper understanding of the issues in their professional and personal practice.
Marta Getty facilitated the sessions of this two day seminar open to all Reiki students who wished to deepen their personal practice. Marta agreed to return by popular request, as she has been a real inspiration to us at the previous gatherings. The idea was to develop on from last year’s theme – ‘ Coming from the Heart – developing your Spiritual Practice’.This was a wonderful opportunity to consider, in depth, aspects of one’s practice and understanding of Reiki. There was plenty of time for questions, small group discussions and personal work supported by full treatment exchanges each day.
