For years, the Elemental Chi website was run on a free content management system (CMS) called Drupal. While Drupal is still free, the organizers have gone into the direction of focusing on more "enterprise-level" projects (that is, large companies with lots of money). In the long run, this means Drupal will require more overhead in terms of technology and knowledge. Therefore, the decision was made to transition Elemental Chi to another platform based on Drupal called Backdrop CMS. Backdrop is committed to offering a website platform for small to medium-sized businesses and organizations.
In making the transition, the shopping cart functionality was disabled. The Drupal shopping cart had not been working consistently for a while (if ever) and the amount of time/energy/cost that would be sunk into making it really work was significant. All courses, downloads, and other offerings are now offered through other learning websites, download platforms, or via direct payment (such as with PayPal). This is easier, cheaper, and provides better security.
This site has been around for more than 10 years under various names (Element Energy / Elemental Reiki / Elemental Chi). You might find some old, out-dated content floating around here - some of this old content is still getting cleaned up, as it takes time to go through it all.
If you had files you purchased on the old site that you would like to download, please use the contact form to get access to an archive of the old website. This will be available until the end of 2019.
