‘Red Carpet Kemp’
A LECTURE ON SPIRITUAL PRACTICE.
19th May, 3.15 - 4.30pm
NEC, BirminghamPenelope Quest, MSc, BA, Cert.Ed, is an internationally renowned Reiki Master and author who has been teaching workshops on healing, personal growth and spiritual development for more than twenty years. She is the author of a number of best-selling books, including Reiki for Life, Self-Healing with Reiki, and The Reiki Manual.In this lecture, you will examine the ways in which Usui’s teachings were more about a spiritual practice to bring about a spiritual awakening, rather than about purely physical healing. The uniqueness of his teachings was that they combined esoteric Buddhism, ancient Shugendo practices, classical Samurai teachings and martial arts knowledge. In effect, this was not Reiki, but more accurately the spiritual path undertaken by Usui which resulted in the birth of Reiki as we know it today. So it is not just the Reiki energy which makes the Usui Reiki system unique; it is the path that is walked by each individual. Each of us in the Reiki community is connected not only to the wonderful healing energy that is Reiki, but also to a spiritual tradition.
