WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki is a Japanese healing art that was developed in Japan in the 1920’s by Usui Mikao. The original name was “shin shin kaizen Usui Reiki Ryoho” which can be translated as the Usui healing method for the improvement of body and mind. The method has 5 main elements that include breath meditation, the precepts, symbols and mantras, hands-on healing and the Reiju or blessings.
HOW IT CAN HELP YOU?
The practice of Reiki brings balance and harmony in body, mind and energy. It strengthens the body-mind connection allowing us to relax, center ourselves, gain clarity, find peace and a deep connection within ourselves and with the world around us. The practice of Reiki restores the body’s natural rhythm and equilibrium allowing healing to happen.
ABOUT THE SELF-CARE PRACTICE
This Reki self-care practice in the traditional Japanese style of Reiki offers participants the opportunity to take a pause during the day to relax, refresh and come back to their original state of balance. This practice is guided by a teacher and may include breath exercises and meditation, centering the body and mind with gassho, exploring the Reiki precepts to release emotions, chanting the mantras as well as to receive distant healing from the teacher.
