Our speaker was Peter Dennett, Reiki Master.
 

Reiki  (ray-ki) is a multidimensional healing energy.  It can heal the cause of a problem on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. 

REI means universal and refers to the spiritual dimensions and the soul.

KI means the vital life force energy, which flows through all that is alive.  

This form of healing was performed thousands of years ago in Tibet , lost, and re-discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in the 1800's.  One of Dr. Usui's students, Mrs. Takata introduced Reiki to Canada and the USA. in 1938 .   

It has been growing ever since.  However, as with any no-cut, no-drug form of healing, North Americans are somewhat skeptical, so changing beliefs is an ongoing challenge.

Peter became involved in the healing arts about 15 years ago when he asked God "why am I here"?  What was his purpose for being on the earth plane at this time.  Several healers of different modalities worked with him to heal himself emotionally so that he would be able to help others.  The result is that he is qualified to practice Therapeutic Touch, Axiatonel Re-alignment, EMT and teaching Reiki Master. 

 

The procedure is that the client lays on a massage table, fully clothed, while the practitioner places their hands lightly on different positions on the body to transfer the "KI" or life energy to the areas of the body where it is needed.

 

The degree to which the client believes in the process, the greater the benefit.  The following are some of the benefits:

      · heals the cause and eliminates imbalances

      · does not conflict with religious beliefs

    ·   it is a viable alternative healing method, and can be combined with    

        medical procedures

    · energizes your entire system safely and quickly

      · minimizes your sense of helplessness when faced with disease

      · helps eliminate daily stress

      · promotes fro within, Love, Caring, Trust, Goodwill, Compassion,Peace                  

        and Serenity

     To really get the best from a treatment, a person should have 3 or 4 sessions over a months time period.  The body needs to get used to the new levels of energy for the maximum benefit.   

There also needs to be an energy exchange between the client and practitioner for if it is free, the client has no stake or responsibility in healing themselves.  A fee is the usual, however trading services is also fine.

  The following is the REIKI affirmation:
