Because the government has lifted certain restrictions and mandates in recent weeks, I wanted to update my policies for spiritual companioning, in-person workshops, and Reiki sessions.
First of all, I believe and respect an individual’s freedom to make personal choices. Your medical information is personal and private and not my business. Therefore, I leave it up to you to decide whether you receive one of the emergency authorized vaccines, whether you continue to wear a cloth mask after such vaccination – or even before – and whether you choose to disclose that information to me or anyone else.
I believe it is up to the individual to make their own determination of risks. Naturally, if you are more risk adverse, you might feel you must take more precautions. Similarly, if you are less risk adverse, you might not take any precautions or receive a vaccine. It is your choice and I respect your right to choose. More and more information is being discovered and disclosed about the nature of this current situation. More and more studies are being done. Information which was believed true 6, 10 or even 16 months ago is being called into question.
At no time will I request personal private medical information from you. Your health and vaccination status is your business. My reasoning, based on my research and consultation with experts, is I believe it is a violation of medical privacy laws to ASK for vaccination status of an emergency authorized vaccine and therefore, I won’t ask you!
I properly sanitize meeting spaces and my Reiki table before and after sessions with clients. I value providing a psychologically safe and confidential space as well as one that is clean and tidy.
We have emerged from a very difficult time for all of us. It is vital, in my opinion, that we set aside differences in opinions and views and treat each other with respect, kindness and patience maintaining the dignity and autonomy of the person.
If you have questions or want to discuss this further, please let me know. I will continue to provide companioning sessions and workshops via Zoom if requested.
I am currently accepting new clients for spiritual companioning and Reiki. Message me to schedule an appointment.
Blessings and good health to all,
