Reiki Tenohira, the Japanese Art of Hands-on-Healing

October 3, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Explore the deeper meaning of hands-on-healing from a traditional Japanese perspective with world renown Reiki Teacher, Frans Stiene.

EVENT DESCRIPTION:

Tenohira is the act of supporting ki to emanate from the palms of the hands for healing purposes. Historically, Mikao Usui, the founder of the system of Reiki (Usui Reiki Ryoho) taught tenohira among other spiritual teachings. The practice was further developed and formalized by one of his students, Hayashi Chujiro, a naval doctor.

Please join us to explore the deeper meaning of hands-on-healing from a traditional Japanese perspective with world renown Reiki Teacher, Frans Stiene.

Frans’ approach to Reiki goes back to the way the system of Reiki was traditionally understood and practiced in Japan in the 1900s. This way follows the three mysteries of the sanmitsu (body-mind-energy). It includes not only hands-on healing but also the practice of meditation, healing techniques, chanting and the Reiju (initiation). The system of Reiki was originally developed by its founder Mikao Usui as a spiritual practice that supports healing and personal development. The aim was to heal the self to achieve anshin ritsumei, a state of inner peace and wholeness. From that space, we can also help others and be the change we want to see in the world. The traditional approach of Reiki offers a solid foundation to anyone on the healing path.

This event combines lecture, discussion and experience.

ABOUT THE TEACHER:

Frans has been a major influence on global research into the system of Reiki since the early 2000s. His practical understanding of the Japanese influences on the system have allowed students around the world to connect deeply with this practice.

He has also co-authored with her the critically acclaimed books: The Reiki Sourcebook The Japanese Art of Reiki, A-Z of Reiki Pocketbook, Reiki Techniques Card Deck and Your Reiki Treatment
