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 friends over the summer of 2019 following one of those apparently chance meeting at a mates Hawaiian themed wedding, true story folks. No such thing as coincidences, only resonances. Over the course of the conversation at that wedding and many that followed we spent a lot of time catching up and comparing notes following years of working through life challenges of stage 4 cancer diagnosis, near terminal bike accidents, PTSD, and how we used Reiki, healing , therapies and of course use of herbal remedies including yet not exclusively based on Cannabis to recover from those challenges .  Chi-Ki Energy as a concept was born that day when we realised that we in common with everyone else on mother earth 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 we saw what can be achieved working together. Over the course of the festival the team treated over 100 folk and it became clear that working collectively in teams, supporting each other and those receiving energy and therapies seemed to work and would be something worth growing for the future.  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 , access to 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 describes our way of working.  After several cups of chiki coffee and much scribbling in books, several failed 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 angle 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  our symbol is the name we chose for our foundation organisation,  its energy being one of balance, connection, and support. The foundations work and many of the therapists who work under the chi-ki umbrella is not exclusivly cannabis orientated, it does form a part of our work within the community.  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 either alone or in combination with herbal Cannabis remedies applied by the therapists. We have had so much ongoing support from herbalists, homeopaths, chiropractors, osteopaths, hypno-therapists, past life regression therapists, reflexologists, healers, Reiki masters, spiritualists, integrated therapists and so many others that have supported our choices. One of our aims is to allow a directory of the practitioners we work with, to allow folk to benifit as we have. 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.
