What is Reiki?
Reiki is the universal energy of life at the very source of all life in the universe. Only the name changes according to the cultures and traditions: the Chinese call it Chi, the Christians Light or Holy Spirit, the Hindus speak of Prana, the Egyptians of Ka and the Sioux of Wakonda.
Reiki: a brief history
Reiki was developed in Japan by Mikao Usui (1865-1926) after a long personal quest a century ago. It is composed of the words “Rei” representing the essence of the source existing in all things and “Ki” meaning vital energy. Chujiro Hayashi (1880-1940) helped to bring Reiki to Japan and Hawayo Takata (1900-1980) then spread it widely throughout the world.
Reiki is an art of living, an initiation to happiness. It is a path that leads us along paths often unsuspected. Reiki is simple and accessible to all. It imposes nothing but total freedom. Reiki is beyond cultures, dogmas, beliefs and religions, fully compatible with every human being on this earth.
