And the Universe replied…

Japanese cosmology beautifully underpins the system of Reiki. It tells us everything we need to know at a spiritual level.
The story begins with our creation, formed from the energetic blending of heavenly energy and earth energy. Watch as light filters down to join with rising darkness, and from this muddy core a human shape emerges.
