Reiki (pronounced ray-key in English) is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Created by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 1900’s, it is administered by “laying on hands.” Similar techniques have been practiced for thousands of years. According to many Reiki texts, as well as Susan Caples, our very own Level I and II Reiki practitioner, this simple, but powerful methodology can be learned by anyone.
Some call it an art form, others call it a therapy and yet others see it as a spiritual discipline; we call it a methodology that can reduce pain and anxiety.
Reiki combines the Japanese and Chinese word-characters of “rei” (spiritual or supernatural) and “ki” (vital energy). One of the basic ideas in the practice of Reiki is that this vital energy can be channeled to support the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Rei is pictured in the upper character and Ki in the lower character.
There is a light in this world….a healing spirit much stronger than any darkness we may encounter. We sometimes lose sight of this force…where there is suffering, too much pain. And suddenly the spirit will emerge…through lives of ordinary people, and answer in extraordinary ways. God speaks in the silence of the heart and we listen. – Mother Teresa
