What Is Traditional Reiki?
The term "Reiki" is a combination of two Japanese characters – Rei which means "spiritual" or "sacred" and Ki which means "energy." In the West, Reiki is most often described as universal life force energy – an unseen force that gives us life and flows through us. Furthermore, it is believed that when this life force energy is low or depleted, we are more likely to suffer stress and dis-ease. When it is high, we are more likely to be joyful and healthy. Reiki is administered by a "laying on of hands" and can have remarkable healing effects. A treatment may feel like a warm, glowing radiance flowing through and around you.
Although Reiki training involves learning symbols and techniques, the healing ability itself is not "taught" in the usual sense. It is transferred to the student by a Reiki Master during an "attunement," allowing the student to tap into the unlimited supply of universal life force energy.
SWIHA offers both Traditional and Transformational Reiki programs. Traditional Reiki is based on traditions that have been handed down for generations. Transformational Reiki is a newly evolved way of teaching this healing art, incorporating an awareness of elements from Native American and world ceremonies into the student’s training. Transformational Reiki includes sounding, chanting and accelerated revelation of the sacred symbols.
