Not too long after deciding I am taking the Holistic Nutritionist course, my wife brought forward an opportunity to learn Reiki in Winnipeg. She heard about it by word of mouth, and our first level of Reiki training is delivered on Aug 23, 2014.
For those who don't know what Reiki is, here is a partial definition according to reiki.org (click the link for full details):
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
