I am so excited to let you all know about the meditations I have been working on for kids on a new site called Meditations4Kids.com.
Ever wanted to know what the first symbol and mantra within the system of Reiki are really about?
Join Frans Stiene in this practice-expanding one hour teleclass in which he explores the history and usage of Choku Rei; its true meaning and purpose from a Japanese perspective.
Lineage in the Reiki community is one of those tenacious subjects that never really goes away. Many Reiki students first hear about their own lineage from their teacher and, from then on, it can become increasingly relevant to them.
In many traditions, lineage is used as a kind of validation that the practices, methods and teachings taught in the tradition really do stem back to the person who first created them. This means that, within some of the more competitive corners of our Reiki community, lively “my lineage is shorter than your lineage” discussions flourish abundantly. There is often an unspoken belief lurking quietly beneath this kind of discussion, that a shorter lineage can make a teaching more relevant, stronger, or even more directly transmitted from Mikao Usui although, if we examine this view rationally, it is impossible to find any logic or common sense in it. However short their lineage is, any teacher can make changes to the practices they teach.
Many people think that the system of Reiki is a form of hands on healing on others, but in reality there is so much more to it.
Here are photos of our lovely Shinpiden graduates form Baltimore and Knoxville in the USA.

Active acceptance is the path to liberation.
Liberation is the effortless embodiment of the Reiki precepts: Release of fear and anger, living quietly in our small and large truths, experiencing all beings compassionately - not separate from ourselves - and following the inner flow of the universe with great presence in each moment that arises and falls.
