Reiki, a spiritual practice developed in Japan, offers healing alternatives considered to be a form of complementary and alternative medicine. Reiki Master, Sea, is offering classes this Spring and Summer in Sacred Spaces Yoga Center on Main Street.
We recently spoke with Sea to get information on Reiki and the training she is offering in town.
What is Reiki? Are there different types?
Reiki is a system of natural, hands-on healing that positively affects the whole person by use of universal life energy. Reiki is a simple, safe, and effective means of stress reduction, pain management, and deep relaxation. Many experience profound emotional, spiritual, and physical healing from this holistic technique.
Although Reiki is not a substitute for traditional medical practice, Reiki works well with and can enhance many other healing modalities.
There are many different types of Reiki. In my understanding, all Reiki at its essence is very similar; the differences are mostly in marketing and style. I teach a "flavor" of Reiki that is flexible, intuitive, and hands-on. The Reiki I teach encourages patience, self-knowledge and openness to intuitive guidance. I emphasize what works and feels right over rules and what looks good. My Advanced and Master training was primarily in the methods and techniques of the International Center for Reiki Training, founded by William Rand.
