I am also a Reiki practitioner and therapeutic harpist. If you have an interest, please visit my site http://reikisounds.net/ where you can download a free 35-minute meditation.
Reiki is a Japanese word which means “Universal Life Energy.” It is actually two words: Rei and Ki. Ki refers to the energy which makes our bodies alive, Rei is the Cosmic source of this energy. We are all born with Reiki. I use the Usui System of Natural Healing named after Dr. Mikao Usui who rediscovered the system in the late 1800’s, and Shambhala Reiki. Reiki can be facilitated in person or at a distance of many miles. In person, it can be hands on or hands above the body. Reiki helps to balance the body and quieten the mind. It can be used in conjunction with allopathic medicine. It is not a religion, and can be used with all faiths.
I also play harp for yoga classes in the Milwaukee and Wauwatosa area.
