the line

"Where is the line between Reiki and Christianity?" a student asked me today.

It was the first meeting of our 8-week summer Reiki class.

"The line?" I responded, "There is no line."

I think we both felt confused.

"Use your religious faith when you practice Reiki. Access your faith, use it. One can believe in any religion and still practice Reiki. Reiki is not a religion, it's a spiritual practice. We accept people of all faiths, or no faith. You can be Reiki, share Reiki, and pray. Pray to whomever you wish. Just be. There is no line," I continued, hoping this made sense.  


  1. Seems like the two would only compliment each other. From my scant experience with Reiki, it seems very spiritual. This and this alone is why I tend to cry, "Oh, God! Oh, GOD!" over and over when I get a treatment.
