Karuna is a Sanskrit word and is used in Hinduism and Buddhism. It is translated to mean any action that is taken to diminish the suffering of others and could also be translated as "compassionate action."
Reiki can help boost your own innate body’s ability to heal itself. Our body’s energy field extends out around us and interacts with the field in which we are all immersed. Various traumas and exposures to a toxic environment can leave us weakened and vulnerable to manifesting illness and dis-ease in the mind, body, and spirit.
Since time immemorial there have been techniques and masters who understood and worked with these energies to assist in restoring balance. In our time Reiki is the most accepted form in use both here in the U.S. as well as Japan, even being incorporated into many hospitals “as part of patient services” (Washington Post, May 16, 2014 - Reiki goes mainstream: Spiritual touch practice now commonplace in hospitals)
I am a registered healer and teacher of Usui and Karuna Reiki with the International Center for Reiki Training and have been using Reiki to benefit myself and others for over 20 years, having taken my first class in 1996. It’s even beneficial for plants and animals. Probably the number one thing people over the years have had to say about their experience is that they felt more relaxed and at ease following a session. Many do not even realize the tension that accumulates in the body, and how this impedes our ability to heal.
A release of this energy, while opening to receive a greater level of healing life force energy that is always available, can have very positive effects and jump start your own healing process. Ultimately, you are your own best healer.
It is always important to know who you are giving permission to work in your energy field. I am happy to provide information about my background, training, and experience and welcome your questions to see if working together in this way is right for you. Not all who have received a Reiki attunement and training will be right for you. I will not be offended should you decide to go with someone else. Always trust your instincts and intuition.
A Reiki session can either be done in person, or long distance through an online environment using Skype.
