I would use the $1000 to produce banners bearing Advanced Reiki energy medicine symbols, and place them on lightposts in areas of Lowell. I would look into commissioning murals bearing Reiki symbols. And I would have medium sized boulders bearing Advanced Reiki symbols placed in public parks.
These symbols are said to enhance flow of energy, justice and cheer, improve the image of a place or person or thing, and to spread knowledge. I would love to work with DIY for these projects even if my proposal is not chosen, as I believe it is valuable to the city and the world.
