Following on from Frans Stiene’s talk on the Japanese Art of Reiki he answered questions from the audience. In Part II he talks at length about Reiki Treatments and their place in the system of Reiki.
Enjoy the energetic experience of watching Frans Stiene of the International House of Reiki perform a brief demonstration Reiki treatment as we discuss the evolution of hands on healing for Reiki practitioners. This will help you understand why Reiki practitioners perform Reiki treatments in a variety of ways.
Recently, I was the keynote speaker at the 2012 New York Reiki Conference. The theme was Mainstreaming Reiki.
One of the other speakers was Dr. Sheldon Marc Feldman, who is Chief of Breast Surgery at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/ Columbia University Medical Center and a strong advocate for hands-on healing. Dr. Feldman spoke about Optimizing Surgery with Reiki, which was based on his experiences implementing a very successful program where Reiki practitioners are part of the breast surgery operating room team.
During a recent teleclass, How to Perform Reiki Treatments, a student asked me to elaborate on byosen reikan ho. Since we believe this question is of interest to many of our readers, we decided to write an article about it.
Today’s article focuses on a single question: What is hands on healing, as practiced within the traditional Japanese system of Reiki? Throughout the article, we will be quoting Yanagi Sōetsu (1889 - 1961), a Japanese philosopher who, in the late 1920s, founded the folk craft movement (Jp. Mingei) in Japan. We believe that he cogently expresses a philosophy that underlies many traditional Japanese practices — such as tea ceremony, flower arranging , martial arts, and meditation — and is deeply embedded in everyday Japanese life.
