The world is undergoing turbulent change and growth into a new era of human history. We have the opportunity to choose our future today by revealing the powerful love that is present in our human spirit. As we make this choice, we will be calling forth the best of our shared humanity on behalf of all people and life on earth. At this time, awareness of social inequity has reached a critical level, inspiring us to change.
As leaders in the international Reiki community, we recognize an opportunity for Reiki to empower us to heal the self-destructive patterns and the generational wounds of systemic social injustice and systems of oppression. These are perpetrated against BIPOC*, LGBTQ+**, and other suppressed people in the US and around the world
We invite Reiki to heal the collective injuries of all people with divine justice and love. We invite the followers of all the world’s religions and spiritual paths to work together to create peace among all people on earth. At the ICRT, we listen and work with BIPOC* Reiki practitioners so we can take actions that best support them and their Reiki practices and businesses.
We also want to ensure that these systemic changes and conversations include other underrepresented groups, including but not limited to LGBTQ+**, Latinx***, and persons with disabilities.
Our intention has been and will continue to be that the ICRT will be a safe, respectful, and welcoming space for people of all ages, races, ethnicities, cultures, abilities, genders, national origins, religions, and sexual orientations.
We pledge to do the following:
We have global opportunities to unify people who contribute to the wellness of the world today and for future generations. As we learn from and teach the next generation, we will show that the practice of Reiki is an effective modality for BIPOC* and underrepresented communities. We will also show that the ICRT is an organization that stands for equity.
*BIPOC is an acronym that stands for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.
**LGBTQ+ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning. ***Latinx is a gender-neutral term used in lieu of Latino or Latina to refer to a person with Latin decent.
