i just got home from a two hour workshop on Reiki sponsored by Sundar Kadayam and Zeynep Premdasi Yilmaz, who had wanted for several years to bring Frans Stiene here. He and his wife created the International House of Reiki, which is located in Australia, but is publishing books and teaching classes globally.
Frans, a gentle, funny, strong soul, has worked to uncover the roots of Reiki, and is now teaching Reiki as a spiritual practice, based on his understanding that we are all spiritual energy. For him, Reiki as a hands-on healing practice grows out of our work on ourselves through using Reiki as a spiritual practice. He demonstrated how his practice and focus had increased the efficacy of Reiki as a healing modality.
It was a treat of an evening. Frans was great. It was also just great to be in the beautiful New Thought Unity sanctuary with all those wonderful Reiki practitioners.
