Dear Friends,I haven’t felt ready to teach a Reiki Master/Teacher class up until now. How could you ever teach to “be” the Great Bright Light? I had a very high bar for myself. Part of it is having a teacher like Frans Stiene. I still have the high bar but somehow it feels like… it’s time. In fact, I started working on the curriculum for the January class. Just putting together the material has blown me away. I’m just looking at the Kanji’s (Japanese characters) of the word Reiki and the Master symbol; and it’s all there. The Earth, the Heaven, the Interconnectedness, the Great Bright Light, and even more… the path to be the Great Bright Light is there too. Will you join me to unlock them all?
Reiki Master/Teacher- Shinpiden class January 16,17,18 2015 from 9:30 am till 5:00 pm
The Shinpiden/Reiki Master/Teacher level class is the beginning of a journey, it’s the doorway to find your true essence, Great Bright Light. It’s a step to “be Reiki”. What it means to “be Reiki” is to live in a non-dual state, with no judgment, no attachment, with unconditional love and kindness for the self and all living beings.
We’ll review Reiki as a system to discover our true selves; with the guidance of Precepts, hands on healing, symbols and mantras, meditations, and attunements. We’ll learn Reiki Master symbol and how to pass Reiki attunements, more importantly the state of mind behind the attunements. We’ll deepen our Reiki journey with meditations, chanting, Japanese techniques, and build the connection to its source within.
The class is on January 16, 17, 18, 2015 from 9:30 am until 5 pm. It’s $450/person. Please RSVP.
The biggest event of the year is yet to come....
Meditation Retreat in June 19-22, 2015
My Reiki Teacher Frans Stiene is coming from Australia to teach a Meditation Retreat in Cincinnati. Frans has been here for Reiki classes and Retreats, this will be the first Meditation retreat and it will be open to EVERYONE! You don’t need to be a Reiki practitioner to attend this Retreat. Frans will lead us through 4 days of healing and life inspiring meditations. Frans will be focusing on esoteric Japanese meditations and healing practices that are not often taught, some of these practices can be traced back to 7th and 8th century Japanese spiritual traditions. Frans also often includes some 4000 years old Wu (Chinese Shamanic) practices within these retreats. We’ll stay at Transfiguration center in Glendale, a secret heaven at the heart of the city. Here are more details for the Retreat:

How do I book a session with Frans?
Contact me to book a session with Frans. Sessions fill up pretty fast :-)
Can I commute to the Retreat?
This is a residential Retreat and we strongly recommend you to stay in the Retreat Center (to conserve the energy and also not to miss the fun!!!). However if you need to stay at home for family reasons, we understand, but we’re afraid you should still pay a portion of the accommodations fee since financials are based on sharing the rent.
