Reiki is an ancient art of healing. It is often referred
to as a Zen art of hands on holistic healing, where the healer
is a channel for the Divine Universal Life Force Energy.
I have been a practicing Reiki Healer since 1989. Over the past
two decades of practice I have learned a few things and changed
my view of some aspects of Reiki. I originally wrote these articles
in 1999 and they have seriously needed updating. Primarily because
of the evolution of Reiki around the world, some good some not
so good. And because my views on the traditional teachings have
also evolved. I overhauled this section in January 2013.

The Reiki Training Courses
Successful graduates of Spring's Haven Reiki classes are
certified by the Center. These certifications are not simply
handed out after taking a class. They are earned by each student
after demonstration of knowledge, passage of final exams and
Each student receives a Certificate of Practice after successful
completion of the discipline. Certificates are not valid unless
they are embossed with the Spring's Haven company seal, and the
senior instructors personal Hanko (Japanese Seal).
