Contemporary society has turned healing into medicine and medicine into a sophisticated job of plumbing. Tapestry of Healing describes the evolution of a marriage of Western medicine and Reiki that transforms the practice of medicine back into healing.
Reiki is an ancient hands-on healing art that brings harmony to the body, mind and spirit. The Japanese word Reiki means universal life force energy. A Reiki practitioner is able to channel healing energy from the universe, through her body and out the palms of her hands to perform healings on herself and on other people. Unlike many other healing systems, Reiki is beautifully simple. The ability to perform Reiki is passed on from a Reiki Master Teacher to her students. After going through an attunement process, the student is immediately and permanently capable of channeling Reiki energy.
Historically, the teaching of Reiki had been a strictly verbal tradition. Over the years I have discovered, to my dismay, that many of my own students as well as acquaintances who have been the students of other Reiki Masters are often hesitant to use their healing abilities because they have forgotten much of the information presented in their classes. It is with these people in mind that I decided to include not only the story of my experiences, but a basic course in energy medicine and Reiki in this book. I have attempted to share all the pearls and pitfalls that I have encountered on my personal journey into energy medicine.
The material in this book has been presented in a way that should be easily understood by those with no previous knowledge of Eastern healing arts. My goal is to inform the uninitiated while still providing some new insights for the experienced healer.
I believe that the integration of Western medicine with energy medicine helps us achieve a level of health and healing that is infinitely greater than either school can achieve on its own. It is my sincere hope that sharing my experiences will encourage others to open themselves to the possibility of accepting this medical marriage. I invite you to help me weave this Tapestry of Healing.
