What is Karuna® Reiki?
Karuna® Reiki is evolved out of Usui and Tibetan Reiki from a desire and a knowingness that there is always something greater waiting to be uncovered. Karuna® is a Sanskrit word and is used in Hinduism, Buddhism and Zen. It is translated to mean any action that is taken to diminish the suffering of others and could be translated as “compassionate action”. When individuals experience enlightenment, they report that all beings are known as one. Therefore, it is natural to extend compassionate action or Karuna® to everyone without distinction because we are all one. As we help others and aid them in their healing processs, all beings benefit. Because of the oneness of all beings, it is understood that Karuna is not only extended to others out of love, but also because it is an entirely logical thing to do. In the same way that you would want to heal your own wounds, you would also want the wounds of others to heal. It is also stated in the Buddhist literature that Karuna® must be accompanied by parjna or wisdom in order to have the right effect.
Karuna® is the motivating quality of all enlightenend beings who are working to end suffering on earth. They continually send an unlimited amount of healing energy and guidance to us, but not all are receptive to it. As you develop Karuna® in yourself, not only are you helping others, but you also become more receptive to the Karuna® that is being sent by all enlightened beings, thus your healing is quickened.
Karuna® Reiki opens you to work more closely with all enlightened beings. This includes those enlighterend ones who are physically present as well as those in spirit.
Karuna® Reiki Courses
You must be a Reiki Master for at least 6 months before you can go on to be attuned to Karuna® Reiki. The master/teacher level is taught in 2 days from 9am till 6pm, and can only be received when the student has been attuned to Usui Reiki Master/Teacher level. If you wish to do the Karuna® practitioner level you must have completed Usui Reiki level 1, 2 and 3a. I am a member of the International Centre for Reiki Training (ICRT). All Karuna® registered teachers have a lineage which can be traced to a teacher licensed by the ICRT and ultimately to William Rand the founder of Karuna® Reiki in America. The Karuna® Reiki has 8 symbols which will empower your healing treatments. Clients of mine who have received Karuna® Reiki after receiving Usui Reiki have reported a deeper feeling of healing and in some cases feelings of floating out of the body. It is an extremely powerful form of Reiki. It is a deeply spiritual course and I personally found it to be life changing on many levels.
