The sun was rising as I began my journey. It was a beautiful day. The day before and day after it rained but that day was beautiful.
Our group first met inside as we welcomed a new member, Jill to the TREES/SARA group. Jill has been coming to TREES every month to offer her many talented services including animal massage and other energy work. We began our group Reiki sessions with Sherman seen in the photo above with Chris Smith. This was Sherman's 3rd Reiki session since his arrival at TREES. At first he seemed unsure what we were all doing just standing in a semicircle in his 'yard'. We told him that we were there to offer him healing if he would like some but that he did not have to take it if he didn't choose to but we would just be there for him.
He began to relax almost right away and took in the healing energy fairly fast.
We said goodbye to all of the residents at TREES and headed back to northern Virginia. What a special day. I look forward to my next visit.
