Reiki in Schools Project – Cranmer Primary School
I am embarking upon an exciting collaboration with Cranmer Primary School in the summer term of 2017.
Following conversations with the Headteacher (herself a Reiki practitioner) about well-being of staff and staff retention, I will be training six teaching professionals to Reiki level 1. The aims of this project are for teachers to use Reiki to prepare themselves for teaching and to enhance serenity and well-being within the classroom.
Currently, almost a third of teachers are leaving the profession within five years of qualifying. Well-being of educators is something that we should all be concerned about. Teaching professionals are increasingly involved in the social and emotional well-being of young people. Mental health issues of young people are becoming more of a concern in the primary sector.
It is anticipated that a further 6 professionals will be trained to Reiki 1 level in the next academic year.
