2024 Reiki Alliance Conference: Reiki, Circle and Simplicity

We are excited to welcome you to register for the 42nd Reiki Alliance Conference. The theme this year is “Reiki, Circle and Simplicity”. The Conference will be held in Piriápolis, Uruguay, at the Hotel Argentino. Your conference team is Lidia Raggi, Beatriz Ferrari, Rosa Silva, Raquel Langa – Argentina, and Ramón Rodríguez – Uruguay.

The day of arrival is Wednesday May 8, 2024, and we have the opportunity of an early check in. The opening ceremony will be held on the evening of May 8, and we will say farewell and safe travels to each other after breakfast on Wednesday, May 15.

As you know, this will be our first opportunity to be together, in person, as the TRA worldwide community since the onset of the pandemic in 2020. It is also our opportunity to demonstrate support for our South American TRA community, as they have supported other TRA Conferences over the many years.

The program promises to be enjoyable and relaxed, with daily Reiki shares and several sessions of enlightening discussions. Discussion topics are planned to arise from the group, and all of us in attendance will choose which topics will be discussed. There will be an Educational Day from the Office of the Grandmaster. Excursions will be offered so we can experience the locality and culture of the area (see below for the options). And, of course, we will have the Marketplace and Cabaret that we all look forward to! Because the AGM will be held on Zoom a few weeks after the Conference, we will have much more time to spend together and reconnect.

We have tried to hold down the cost of registration, but the effects of worldwide inflation have impacted us all. The registration cost equates to less than a 5% annual increase over the previous typical conference fee of USD 1,200.

Price for a single room occupation for a master: USD 1595. Price for a double room occupation per participating master: USD 1385. Price for an accompanying person (in a double room with the master): USD 850

Registration for the Conference will close on March 20, 2024.
