What is Reiki?
Reiki Ryoho (healing method) is a gentle yet powerful method of energy-based healing and self-development, founded by Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist, at the beginning of the 20th century. Consistent with other vibration-based therapies, the system of Reiki holds the precept that the human body requires a continuous flow of life force energy to sustain optimal health. Reiki strives to bring body, mind and spirit into harmony supporting relaxation, stress reduction, and personal growth. In the system of Usui Reiki as well as many other practices, daily meditation is encouraged to calm the mind and relax the body.
The Reiki Precepts
Considered a key component in the foundation of Usui-sensei’s teachings, the Reiki Precepts are offered to support our journey. With the support of this CD, recite them daily in a contemplative manner. Meditate on these principles with the goal to live by them.
