One of the primary energyworking modalities The Halau at ‘Aha Hui Lanakila, Inc., teaches is Usui Teate Reiki (original knowledge Japanese Reiki/Gakkai system) and Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki (American Reiki/Takata system) and its progeny energies. And, if you’ve wondered, “What is Reiki?” you’re not alone!
There has been a great deal of debate about exactly what Reiki is. Most practitioners agree that it is a form of life/healing energy, but beyond that the various schools differ, with some being much more esoteric than others. The word itself can be broken down into the component parts of “Rei” (pronounced ‘ray’) and “Ki” (pronounced ‘key’).
The Japanese language has many different levels of meaning within it. Some levels are very basic while others are highly esoteric. “Rei” literally means spirit, ghost, soul, in the heavens or of spirits; but also denotes universal energy. “Ki” also means spirit and, some argue, is essentially the Japanese equivalent of the Chinese description of “Chi”, which means life force energy. The word Reiki, therefore, can be taken to refer to a balanced universal life force energy.
Because of its unique qualities Reiki seems to have a basic consciousness which, when used for healing, is able to provide exactly what is needed on all levels.
The Halau offers instruction and training in original knowledge Usui Teate Reiki from Basic through 18th Dan Reiki Grandmaster. The Halau also offers four levels of instruction and training in American Reiki (Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki), Basics through Level 4 Reiki Master-Teacher. On-site live classes as well as correspondence training via Skype or Google+ Hangout weekly sessions are available.
