Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It was re-discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 1900’s. Reiki is administered by “laying on hands” and techniques such as this have been practiced for thousands of years. Reiki is a very simple and gentle technique that can be easily learned by all ages – from children to adults. Holy Fire Reiki is a new form of Reiki that was introduced in January 2014 by the ICRT. It is both powerful and gentle and provides purification, healing, empowerment and guidance.
“Rei” means universal and it means higher knowledge or spiritual consciousness. This is the wisdom that comes from God or the Higher Self and is the God-Consciousness which is all-knowing. “Ki” is life energy or the universal life force. Ki is also the primary energy of our emotions, thoughts and spiritual life. Therefore, Reiki can be defined as spiritually guided life energy.
You don’t have to be religious to be spiritual. “Spirituality is how you connect to yourself and the world, mentally, emotionally and physically. We do not get spirituality through religion or philosophy. It is simply the essence of being human.”
The format of all classes consists of a combination of lecture, meditation, discussion and hands-on experience learning. A manual/and handouts is included for all Reiki levels and a certificate upon completion.
