The Gloria Borges Reiki and Guided Meditation Program

The Gloria Borges WunderGlo Foundation Reiki and Guided Meditation Program successfully launched in Los Angeles on Monday, March 7, 2016 for all cancer patients and their caregivers. In 2017, we proudly expanded our monthly program to patients who receive treatment on-site at USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center.

At hospitals and clinics across America, Reiki has gained acceptance as a meaningful and cost-effective way to improve patient care. The attendance and response from the patients & caregivers who attend The WunderGlo Foundation’s program have been phenomenal.

The Gloria Borges WunderGlo Foundation offers this program for free to all cancer patients and their caregivers on the first Monday of every month at two locations: At the HiltonDoubleTree Hotel -Downtown Los Angeles (for all cancer patients & their caregivers who receive treatment anywhere) – and on-site at USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center – exclusive to their patients and caregivers.

WHAT IS REIKI?

Reiki (the verb) is the transference of energy via a practitioner to a client to help heal the electromagnetic field around and through our bodies to affect positive change in the mental, physical, emotional, and etheric bodies. Put even more simply Reiki is like a blood transfusion, but for your energy to help expedite wellness. Energy is real and has been proven in many ways. Not just through physical experience. There are methods such as Kirlian photography, Aura Photography, and others that have been able, to capture the “coronal discharge, electromagnetic fields (or energy) of animate and even inanimate objects. Kirlian photography is acollection of photographic techniques used to capture the phenomenon of electrical coronal discharges. Semyon Kirlian, in 1939 accidentally discovered that if an object on a photographic plate is connected to a high-voltage source, an image is produced on the photographic plate. The technique has been variously known as “electrography”, “electrophotography”, “corona discharge photography” (CDP), “bioelectrography”, “gas discharge visualization (GDV)”, “electrophotonic imaging (EPI)”, and, in Russian literature, “Kirlianography”.
