WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki is a gentle Japanese hands-on technique or healing modality based on bioenergetics that is used for stress reduction, relaxation and health. It is a healing technique that allows the practitioner to focus "Ki" or life force energy and transmit that energy to another person. The word Reiki is composed of two Japanese words - "Rei" which can be translated as universal, higher power, or God’s wisdom, and "Ki" which can be translated as "Spiritual or life force energy." Reiki promotes physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing. Reiki is simple and safe. The client remains fully clothed and can be either sitting, or lying on a massage table while the practitioner gently places their hands on or above them. Reiki can be used in conjunction with any other healing modalities, conventional or alternative, and has been clinically proven to be safe.
WHAT CAN REIKI DO FOR YOU?
Reiki can help you heal on mental, emotional and physical levels. Reiki treatments can positively compound the effects of traditional therapies. Reiki helps the body and mind relax. When we relax the mind and body is able to heal.
IS REIKI A RELIGION OR CULT?
Reiki it is not a religion or a cult, and has no dogma, although Reiki does emanate from the Divine Spirit. Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus and other belief systems have found that Reiki enriches their life by allowing them to directly experience divine healing energy, and have found that Reiki has a positive transforming effect.
HOW DO I LEARN REIKI? Reiki can be easily learned by anyone. The ability to transmit Reiki energy is transferred from a Reiki Master Teacher to the student by a process called an attunement. An attunement is a process by which the student becomes more "tuned in" to the Reiki energy, much like tuning in to a radio or television station. The signal becomes more powerful and "noise" is minimized.
There are four levels in the system of Reiki taught at Reiki Haus. Please see "Class Contents" for more information.
Gendai Reiki is a Japanese form of Reiki that is not of the Hayashi-Takata lineage. (It does originate with Usui, but from there it consists primarily of members of the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai - definitely not "New Age.") You will learn simple yet powerful purely Japanese techniques, meditations, and energy clearing techniques that are not taught by other Reiki Masters in the area. There are Western techniques integrated in Gendai Reiki.
IS REIKI "KOSHER"?
There has been discussion by people of faith as to whether or not Reiki is "kosher" or "proper." Jews ask if it is "avodah zarah" or "idol worship." Reiki does not have a dogma, as mentioned above, although is does use symbols. It is these symbols that are in question. Mikao Usui, the founder of Reiki, chose various symbols to connect the Reiki energies to so his students could tell the difference when they were learning to sense the different energies. Once the student is proficient, it is not necessary to use the symbols. In fact, in Reiki I, the Master does not use any symbols when attuning the student. One of the symbols is in fact a sentence written with Japanese kanji/letters. Other Reiki Masters also speak of calling in spirit guides, etc. While this may be part of their practice and cosmology, this is not Reiki as taught by Usui. or the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai. Reiki emanates from, and is a gift of, the One God. This is not idol worship.

What is Shamanic Journeying?
A shamanic journey is an ancient method used to access the unconscious to get answers to questions, information, wisdom, and healing for yourself and others. The brain is put into theta state by the use of repetitive drumming, and the journeyer goes into Non-Ordinary Reality for a specific purpose, i.e. to find the answer to a question, to seek guidance, etc. without the interference of the every day "monkey mind" distractions.
Journeying boosts the immune system, energizes the spirit, and is unparalleled as a wisdom tool. Answers to any questions, concerns, or issues that you might have are within your reach once you have learned the technique of the shamanic journey. Journeying provides a direct connection to Spirit that will help you bring calm, peace, and insight into your everyday life.
