Karuna Reiki Practitioner & Masters

Tibet-pass-flagsKaruna is the Jewel in the Crown of the Reiki System

Karuna Reiki is a healing system, very similar to Usui Reiki. It feels like the same family, like a spiritual cousin, but with a definite, distinctive feel to it. It is a natural extension to Usui Reiki, the next logical progression. One leads naturally and effortlessly into the other.

Karuna represents a quantum shift in your healing ability.  The Karuna symbols and the teaching programme ensure that this course will be a stepping stone to a higher level of your path & purpose. This work also initiates profound healing on fundamental levels and is deeply transformative, so please be prepared for huge changes within yourself.

This workshop is recommended for existing Reiki Masters (or practitioners for the Karuna Practitioner,) who are already committed to their path of personal healing and spiritual growth, who now feel ready to move to the next level of personal, professional and planetary healing. You will access new and powerful tools to heal yourself, to use in your work with others and for world healing.

How do I use Karuna with others?  

In the same way as you use Usui Reiki, with a few choices in how to work with them. The symbols can be used alongside the Usui symbols. They can be mixed and matched and interwoven, bringing in whatever is appropriate for each person in each area and situation.

Shambala-meditation-room 2These symbols add a greater depth, focus and potential to your healing work – opening up more possibilities for transformation, particularly where you come across resistance, blocks and reluctance to face painful or deep-seated issues.

You will be taught how to work with the symbols, how to do a stand alone Karuna treatment and how to use the incredibly powerful techniques of chanting & toning sessions.

The clearing and healing that ensues will enable you to step more fully and easily into your individual path of perfection and mastery. As you move deeper into your authentic self, you will be in a much better position to assist others on their healing path.

How do I teach Karuna Reiki?

Shambala-beach-bonfireOn successful completion you will become a registered Karuna Reiki® Master with the International Centre for Reiki Training, and entitled to use the letters “KRM”.

Your students will also be eligible for registration with the ICRT (International Centre for Reiki training.) But the important outcome will always be the growth and healing that ensues within you.

The Meaning of the word ‘Karuna’

Shambala-thankaKaruna is a Sanskrit word and is used in Hinduism and Buddhism. It is translated to mean any action that is taken to diminish the suffering of others and could also be translated as “compassionate action.”  When we reach enlightenment, we are conscious of the realms out with time, space and matter where there is no duality – only unity consciousness. We understand that all beings are one. It is therefore natural to extend compassionate action or Karuna to everyone without distinction, as what we do for others we do for ourselves. As we help others and aid them in their healing process, all beings benefit. Because of the oneness of all, it is understood that Karuna is not only extended to others out of unconditional love, but also because it is the entirely logical thing to do. In the same way that you would want to heal the pain of your own wounds, you would also want to heal other’s pain. It is stated in Buddhist literature that Karuna must be accompanied by prajna or wisdom in order to have the right effect.

Karuna is the motivating quality of all enlightened beings who are working to end humanity’s suffering on Earth. They continually send an unlimited amount of healing energy and guidance to us, but not everyone is receptive to it. As you develop Karuna in yourself, not only are you assisting others, but you also become more receptive to the Karuna that is being sent by all the enlightened beings, thus your own healing is also quickened.

Karuna Reiki opens you to work more consciously with these enlightened beings. This includes those enlightened ones who are physically present as well as those in spirit. The Karuna attunements initiate healing on very deep levels. The changes may continue for a long time following the course, so it is only advised for those who are already committed to their path of personal healing and spiritual growth.
