My way with Reiki

 

My spiritual journey began in my childhood. I struggled to say “having had a certain experience” and chose the phrase “having had the impression of having had a certain experience”. In 2006 I came into contact with further education courses, which should help me to classify this, but also on the topics of meditation, yoga, relaxation techniques and last but not least alternative and complementary medicine.

To Reiki I found in 2010, completed the first and second level of training until 2011 and decided to do the master training only when the time was ripe for me and the teacher(s) of a more traditional Reiki style would appear. After a remarkable experience during an Experimental Trance Week at the Arthur Findlay College in London, I decided to return to the topic of healing in 2014.

In 2015-2016, I learned the first three levels of training of the Gendai Reiki Hō in a Reiki school in Cologne and found what I had missed in the Western Reiki. In autumn 2016, I had the opportunity to do the master and teacher training directly with the founder of the Gendai-Reiki method, Hiroshi Doi Sensei in Japan, after repeating the previous levels of training.

From Doi Sensei I received the exclusive licenses of his books for the German-speaking countries, translated his best-known work Iyashino Gendai Reiki Hō from English into German and published it in my publishing house in autumn 2017 together with the translation of his latest work Gendai Reiki Ho. In spring 2018 I published a German Picture Guide of Reiki written by Frank Glatzer. At the beginning of 2019, I published the book of Frans Stiene The Inner Heart of Reiki – Rediscovering your True Self, which I translated into German.

In addition to teaching the Reiki method, there have been nice opportunities to give lectures and workshops, such as at the meeting of the ProReiki Regional Group Cologne, at the annual congress of the professional association ProReiki, at the Reiki Convention, at the Reiki Mööt or at the annual workshop of the Reikiverband Germany. I constantly use the opportunities for further education and events such as the Reiki Festival or the Reiki Fair North.

After an insight into the Jikiden-Reiki in spring 2017, I did a second teacher training in the Usui Reiki Ryōhō at the beginning of 2018 with the internationally renowned Reiki teacher Frans Stiene. I repeated this teachings in 2019 and 2020. As well I attented his retreat ” “How Japanese spiritual teachings formed and influenced the system of Reiki” during the group trip that I organized to Japan in 2019.

I am a member of the Gendai Reiki Healing Association, the Professional Association ProReiki, the Reiki Association Germany (RVD) and the umbrella organization mental healing (DGH).
