We all had an amazing time in Bali for the 4 day Reiki Retreat at the beautiful Bali Mountain Retreat. In fact, there were so many lovely times, and, hence, photos, we’ve put together a video to give you a taste of them all.
Frans Stiene is a committed Reiki teacher who, in July 2012, has the unique opportunity to begin Shugendo training in Japan. YOU can help him to raise the funds to go.
Frans has been studying and teaching the system of Reiki from a Japanese perspective since 1999 all around the globe. Those of you who know Frans know that he is 100% committed to his roles as a Reiki teacher and as a student of the practice. His generosity in sharing his path with others is a stand-out amongst Reiki teachers.
We understand times are tough and we’d like to be able to help.
And we think we can do that in multiple ways by offering 5 scholarships for the Shinpiden Reiki Level III courses In Australia.
There’s always lots to discuss about the system of Reiki. We have a question for you about attunements and treatments. Come and join the discussion.
