Community Distance Reiki 

Healing for all by contribution

Reiki energy can be focused to support personal wellbeing regardless of the physical distance between the practitioner and recipient. With practice, this ever abundant energy can be directed to an infinite number of people at once for the benefit of anyone wishing to receive it. It’s a technique perfect for socially distanced wellness no matter  your budget.

RSVP to an upcoming Community Distance Reiki Session:

Hi! I’m Danielle Stimpson, Owner & Founder of Learn Reiki Philadelphia. I believe Reiki can be an empowering catalyst for personal change, a rewarding self-care practice and a source of peace in an ever out-of-balance world.

Danielle Stimpson, Reiki Master, Learn Reiki PhiladelphiaI launched my Reiki practice during the financial crisis of 2008 by collaborating with a Community Acupuncture center in West Philadelphia, PA. The clinic worked by simplifying personal treatments to be effective in a shared space, lowering the price per client dramatically while remaining financially sustainable for the professionals. The challenges of 2020 have rekindled the inspiration the Community Acupuncture movement sparked within me. Without ability to share physical space and with financial resources dwindling, we all find ourselves needing supportive self-care more than ever.

While practicing Reiki with this in mind, the format of what I now call Community Distance Reiki coalesced. I gave the event a couple of test runs and received a flood of positive feedback.  Both personally and professionally, I found it deeply fulfilling to hold the space and make Reiki available to anyone who’d like it. The volume of people I was able to treat in a relatively short period of time balanced well with the contribution model, helping neutralize financial challenges while still supporting me as a provider. Best of all, I still have plenty of opportunity for the one on one distance sessions, readings, online Reiki classes & membership/patron platform that I love so much. 

What to Expect During Community Distance Reiki

Each event is one hour in length. In the first 15 minutes, I will introduce myself, explain a little about Reiki and invite you to silently set any special healing intentions you may have (though none is needed). I will then send Reiki silently for 30 minutes, after which I will gently call everyone back. The final 15 minutes are reserved for questions and answers and is purely optional.  After you sign off, you can take a nap, journal, meditate or get back to what you were doing. There is no need to introduce yourself or even turn on your camera-this time is all about you.

 Reiki supports our body, mind and spirit’s ability to find healing balance and each session will feel differently depending on what you need. Most common is a sense of deep relaxation and peace where you may not even know whether you are awake or asleep (either of which are OK-naps are healing too). You may have sensory experiences which could include heat and cold, buzzing, twitching, etc. Emotions may be released as tears or even laughter. Some find their intuition heightened and may see colors, hear sounds or even feel a connection to their Spirit Guides or Ancestors. I suggest coming with an open heart and mind to see what awaits you.

How to Prepare for Distance Reiki

Our time together is all about you getting some much needed self-care, and that will look a little different for everyone. Make a space for yourself that feels physically comfortable. This can be as simple or elaborate as you like. You are invited to sit or lay down using the floor, a comfy chair or couch, even your bed. Little touches like your favorite music or tea, crystals, aromatherapy, weighted blanket or even a clean bandana or pillowcase folded into a lightweight blindfold, while not required, can enhance your experience. You can join alone or with your partner, roommates, family…the possibilities are endless.  

What do I ‘do’ during my Distance Reiki session?

You don’t have to do a single thing.  You will be invited to set an intention before we get started, so there is no need to focus on anything. If you feel called to sleep, go right ahead, the Reiki will keep flowing. If your mind seems extra chatty or if you get distracted take a deep breath in through the nose and out through the mouth as a gentle reset. Adjust your position to stay comfortable as often as you need.

Her experience in Reiki and beyond makes her a very knowledgeable teacher and supportive guide through learning Reiki. In addition to her vast knowledge, she is a patient facilitator. If you are considering learning Reiki, absolutely work with Danielle. You will be very satisfied!”
-KD, Vineland, NJ


“Danielle is not only intuitive and brilliant, she has a way to guide you along your path instead of giving you the plan. I rank Danielle up there with some of the world’s best and is an integral part of my healing journey. Not only a teacher, friend, and healer, Danielle is the most giving of herself and her resources to others, making her an inspiration to me.”
-Stephanie Dodd, Founder of Hope Through Love

“Danielle is beyond amazing. Her healings are powerful but gentle. In her readings as well as a person, she helps get to the core of the matter by speaking her truth and helping you to find yours. She does this in a way that is articulate and knowledgeable but with a sense of humor too! She’s very down to earth and without a drop of the airy fairy pretentiousness that some ‘new age’ practitioners nowadays are sometimes stereotyped for. She’s the real deal.”

-Marilyn, NYC


“Danielle is a wonderful teacher and intuitive. She has taught me so much and has really opened my eyes to what my soul’s higher purpose really is. I am so grateful to have met Danielle and attribute the beginning of my spiritual journey to her teachings. She is truly an amazing spirit!”

-JD, Philadelphia
