What do we mean by “Practice” in the system of Reiki?

Bronwen and Frans recently wrote an interesting article “Why Practice the System of Reiki?” In this post, they make a very direct case for the purpose of personal “Practice” in the system of Reiki.
But what is the nature of this practice? Is there one best way to approach the practice of Reiki? Does that approach vary from person to person? Does the practice vary over time?

A Question for you about the Reiki Precepts and Hands-on Healing

What a great response to our last question about the Reiki precepts, so many interesting and tasty answers. One thing which is becoming clear is that many say that the precepts are one of the most, if not THE most, important element within the system of Reiki. When we speak of elements, we are discussing the five main elements to the system of Reiki.
So here is our next question for you, also related to the Reiki precepts…

My Reiki Journey with Frans Stiene Part 5 -  Frans comes to Cincinnati

Right from October 2007, I had a deep desire build in me to share Frans’ teachings with all those wonderful people in Cincinnati, where I live.  Luckily for me, my friend Zeynep Yilmaz, is, among many many things, a gifted planner and organizer.  She and I joined forces to systematically build up awareness, interest, and worked with Bronwen and Frans to set up a Shinpiden training class in Cincinnati, from July 1-3, 2011.

My Reiki Journey with Frans Stiene Part 4 - Frans’ Shinpiden Class in Philadelphia in July 2010

From October 2007 through July 2010, I’ve had the privilege of being guided by Frans in my Reiki practice as it flowered, merged with, and became one and the same as my personal spiritual path. I looked over all the email exchanges and Skype chats with Frans over these many months, and I was shocked to find that I’ve bombarded Frans with dozens of emails. And these emails are no ordinary emails, they are each these massive, 1000+ word bombs (kind of like these posts I’m writing now), each laden with big questions. I’m shocked to see that Frans had replied to every single one of them, and often within 24 hours!

Why Practice the System of Reiki?

Great to see all your different ideas and comments on our last blog, A question for you about Reiki Treatments, where we posted a question about two different types of hands-on healing sessions. Some thought it too brain numbing, others too easy, and for some - just plain too different from what they’d been taught as Reiki practitioners. Why would we ask this question?
Well, there was a second, unwritten, question in this blog…
