f the creatures who re-created the world after the flood. It is said that the raven stole the sun, a reference to his love of bright things, but he is also a messenger of Great Spirit. As a guardian of sacred laws his appearance was regarded as a sign of coming change, and so he is a bird of transformation bringing new challenges.  

Welcome

 

Welcome to the Chi-Ki Foundation website. Chi was Co-founded by three old friends over the summer of 2019 following an apparently chance meeting at a mates Hawaiian themed wedding, true story folks. Over the course of the conversation and catching up of many years a theme of life challenges, stage 4 cancer diagnosis, bike accidents and Reiki, healing , therapies and use of herbal remedies including Cannabis to recover from those challenges unfolded.  Chi-Ki Energy as a concept was born that day when we realised that we were never meant to face the challenges of life alone. Working collectively we support each other within the foundation and extended that support to the wider community who we support through our therapies and practices was the way forward.  Following an invite a week later to join a tent of white eagle lodge healers, Reiki healers, and national federation spiritual healers at the Trew Fields Festival saw the birth of what has become Chi-Ki healing Tent. Over the course of the festival and over 100 folk treated by the group it became clear that working collectively in teams, supporting each other and those receiving energy and therapies seemed to work and may be something worth growing.  Over the weeks following Trew Fields and many many cups of coffee the seed idea of combining energy, remedies and therapies in support of people and their families and care givers facing life’s challenges grew and grew.  We know from our personal journeys that a wide support network , good therapists and health care professionals, to call on is essential when facing life’s major challenges, and of course helpful for the little challenges too. While sitting down trying to decide what to even call ourselves the combination of Chi and Ki sprung to mind and describes the chiki way we work. Despite the challenges we have faced and the challenges of those we are supporting  we find a light hearted approach , and a sense of humour and fun, are paramount to our well-being and way of working.  After several cups of chiki coffee and much scribbling in books, and attempts to photo shop something suitable, suddenly  the symbol which is part of our logo was drawn pretty much simultaneously by all 3 of us, with a slight tweak of the Raku ( the divine lightning bolt) and we had a Reiki like symbol to access energy as well as a groovy logo. We asked and searched for any evidence of the symbol prior to our drawing in several Reiki Traditions and looked widely, while it has vague Onalome like form, it appears to be energetically about drawing energy and knowledge down to reality rather than the escape to enlightenment of the Onalome, and its energy has been very connective and resonant. Chi-Ki as well as being  an organisation, is also a symbol,  its energy one of balance, connection, and support. We think we can all agree that the prospect of taking cannabis for the first time or trying any new treatment or therapy can be frightening, intimidating, worrying or just plain wyrd.  No matter how challenging  the situation or diagnosis or how close your diagnosed expiry date can be , Fear can rule us. Everyone wants to keep safe with any supplement, herbal remedy or anything they add into their health and wellbeing protocol. It’s can be scary trying to find your balance without any support. Which is why we started Chi-Ki Energy, to help provide that support. Chi-ki aim to provide A safe, easy way to experience  a combination of therapy, energy or healing combining herbal Cannabis remedies applied by the therapists. We have had so much ongoing support from herbalists, homeopaths, chiropractors, osteopaths, hypno-therapists, reflexologists, healers, Reiki masters, spiritualists, integrated therapists and so many others that have supported our choices. With Chi-Ki Energy you can too. You can find your balance combining any alternative, complementary, integrated treatment or protocols and Cannabis. At Chi-Ki we always suggest  starting with the minimum dose, then see how you feel, introduce one product at a time. This is true herbal holistic health. The facts is  everyone is unique and we all come from a different starting point with a unique diagnosis, all herbal remedies treat the person not the disease. At Chi-Ki we work with people to help them regain balance, what is known as homeostasis , and through that balance healing and improvement in the quality of life.

Luzita, we send love to your spirit as you pass into the otherworld. We know from knowing you in life that your journey was brave and fierce and wild with joy and with anticipation of all that is to come for you. We honour your journey we hold those who love you in deep comfort, we honour their grieving, we wrap them in love. We wish you well, we wish you open pathways and a beautiful journey from here. Blessed be your feet that walked on this beautiful earth that came into contact with the plants you loved so well, the plants that held you in life for so much longer than the Dr said you would. Blessed be your legs, that supported you and held you in this journey, Blessed be your womb, that birthed your child and birthed your creativity, from the fire of life. Blessed be your belly, that took in nourishment, Blessed be your lungs, that breathe the sweet air, Blessed be your heart that beat so strongly and fiercely, that drummed the rhythm of life in its own wild independent way. Blessed be your shoulders, that bore their burdens well, Blessed be your arms that held those you loved, Blessed be your hands that created so many healing medicines, and felt the touch of skin on skin. The hands held by your loved ones as you died. Blessed be your throat that spoke the truth,  that was a hollow bone for all that is wildly true in this world, Blessed be your tongue and your mouth that tasted sweetness and made your truth heard so strongly in his world. Blessed be your eyes, that shone so brightly and saw beauty, Blessed be your ears that heard the bird song, Blessed be your mind that was never tamed. Be well on your journey Luzita, you go from love into love, you are loved and you are love. We wish you well, for this we pray.
It is with great sadness we announce our friend and co founder Luzita has passed over and return to the light after an eight year battle with cancer. She will be much missed by us all. The work she started will continue but we ask that you give us some time to adjust.
