Are YOU joining us in New York in September?
There's lots on in New York this September:
- New York Reiki Conference - Frans Stiene is the Keynote Speaker
- Long Island Evening Talk with Frans Stiene
- AND Shinpiden Reiki Level III - the teacher level of the system of Reiki.
Frans is trying to find ways to help you join him for Shinpiden. Interested? Read on...
On September 28th-30th Frans will be teaching a Shinpiden Reiki Level III class in New York. He's been teaching in New York for about 6 years - such a vibrant place to work and study in.
After returning from his recent Shugendo training in Japan, Frans has been thinking about how to help the Reiki community get a clearer idea of what it means to work with the system of Reiki from a traditional Japanese perspective. By saying "japanese", he's not talking about what is taught in Jikkiden Reiki, Komyo Reiki or Gendai Reiki - whose main focus remains hands-on healing.
Frans' interest is in the spiritual practice that gets a practitioner to a place where healing is a natural part of life, rather than a structured treatment. He believes that this is where the Japanese philosophical and cultural elements of the system lead us. This doesn't mean being Buddhist or having to integrate a Buddhist lifestyle into the system. It means exactly what Usui Mikao did: integrating effective elements from the practices that he knew and creating a practice that was open to anyone of any religion. The perfect healing system.
Frans' teacher in Japan took a Reiki Level I and II course in Japan to find out more about what modern Reiki teachers taught. As an experienced practitioner of a number of Japanese energetic practices, he could see that the symbols and mantras, the precepts, the meditations and the reiju were used in a way that didn't reflect how an elightened teacher, like Usui-san, would work with these elements. And was dissappointed. He could, however, see that these elements were a complete system if taught from the perspective of a spiritual practice. Takeda Ajari encouraged Frans to keep teaching in the direction that he has taken with Usui-san's teachings as, according to him, this is the way a teacher from that era, using those practices, intended the system to be. A great validation of our research into the system.
The spiritual level of the practitioner directly reflects the effect of Reiki. In a sense, the more you are enlightened, the more effective Reiki is. The more you practice the system of Reiki for saving others, the brighter your innate light shines to drive away clouds covering your mind. I think this is the quintessence of Reiki. I hope your way, Frans Stiene - International House of Reiki, of understanding the system of Reiki spreads in the world to enlighten those who practice the system of Reiki based on a superficial understanding of the tradition.
Quote from *Takeda Hakusai Ajari
For this reason, Frans feels he needs to reach more people with these teachings. And, as we are organising the New York Shinpiden Reiki Level III course ourselves, we would like to give people in the New York region more opportunity to take part in the class.
The easiest way to do this is to make it financially more accessible, if only for a limited time.
