Make Things Happen!
A gathering of like minded spirits from various states united in Reiyukai America Pasadena Center for their annual Riyukai America National Committee Conference Weekend. The main focus for the gathering was to find answers to some important issues…What problems do we see in our community? What kind of care can Reiyukai provide for the community? Needless to say, by Sunday, all attendants had a clearer idea of what was to be their focus for the year 2016. Stay Tuned for up coming events!
