The Reiki Circle for That Good Feeling
Reiki’s origin goes back to ancient times. It is believed to be similar to the healing energy used by the High Priests of Israel. Its practice was lost over time but rediscovered in Japan in the 1800s by a Buddhist Monk Dr. Mikao Usui, principal of Dashisha University in Kyoto, Japan. Reiki is a hand on or hands off method for healing both physical and emotional disease. It is used in hospitals and other medical facilities. The practitioner is a conduit for the energy to pass through to the recipient. Effects vary but if open to the energy, most will feel very good and peaceful. Class limited to 10 participants.
