Last month I spent ten days camping and hiking in southern Utah! Much like the wilds of Big Sur, Nature’s life force or Ki is powerful, and the landscape is dynamic with unusual rock formations and vibrant colors. Spending time in that spaciousness reminds me how fundamental Nature is to the quality of my life and work; it nourishes and replenishes, providing a sense of wellbeing. Back at home I make it a habit to touch nature by walking barefoot on the beach or putting my feet in the grass at a local park connecting directly with the Earth’s magnetic field to rebalance my energies.
As a Bodyworker, I’ve learned to manage my energy… yet there is no denying that, after a full day of seeing clients, I need to recharge both body and mind. Finding stillness inside myself strengthens my innate personal connection with the natural order and plays a large role in my own self-care. The meditations and Ki techniques I’ve learned from Komyo Reiki help me to find stillness and alignment with the highly refined energy called Rei.
My 20 year relationship with Reiki has been personally transformative and I delight in sharing the Komyo teachings with others. I recently spend time here in California with my Komyo Reiki Kai teacher Hyakuten Inamoto. He is a Buddhist monk from Kyoto, Japan. What Komyo Reiki offers is a twofold path of spiritual practice and therapeutic energy work.
If you’re looking to deepen your practice, either personally or professionally, I highly recommend taking a Reiki training. I’ll be teaching workshops in 4 different locations starting in December in Monterey and Esalen in March. If you’re in the Bay Area, I’ll be teaching on both sides of the bay. Hope to see you there!
