Passing on kindness, gratitude and compassion
“I was introduced to Reiki as one of the modules being taught at an holistic medicine workshop. After my first practice session, the person I was giving Reiki to said she had never felt so loved! What an amazing experience and what energy, I thought. I am going to do this to improve my own and the lives of others.”
– Heidi Rearden Reiki Master
I’ve been practicing Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism for over 30 years, it is a practice for oneself and others. So finding Reiki has been part of my journey in life to help others as well as myself. I come from a medical family, my parents were both paediatricians, before they retired. Growing up I learnt from them the importance of caring for others. This has giving me a sense of being at the cross roads of science and spirituality to support others in their search for happiness and well-being.
I’m so passionate about Reiki because to me it is a heart based holistic therapy. For me Reiki is an enabling energy that encourages one’s own body to heal itself. I use my buddhist practice while giving Reiki, chanting to myself as I pass on the energy for the best possible outcome for the Reiki client.
“When you cling to one set idea, you can’t respond to changes. Most people think that illness should be left entirely up to doctors. There is a certain degree of truth in that assumption, but I also believe that we can respond to illness by realizing that we ourselves are not only the patient but to some extent our own doctors as well.”
