Welcome back to ReikiCafe Radio! This week, join ReikiCafe University professor Isabel Wells as she shares the importance of agency and autonomy in our Reiki practices.

Agency and autonomy are two concepts that get thrown around quite a bit, and as both psychological and philosophical  ideas, everyone has slightly different definitions. For this show, we'll take autonomy as someone's possession and understanding of free will, while agency is the capacity to act on that free will.

As Reiki practitioners, agency and autonomy fall in line with the Reiki precept, 'Just for today I will do my work honestly'. Honesty in our practice does not simply mean telling the trust, but also calls us to remember and honor the agency and autonomy of ourselves and our clients in session.

In this episode, Isabel covers:

  • The definition of agency and autonomy
  • The difference between practitioner/client and human/human dynamics in sessions
  • How sessions can either be like a window or a mirror
  • What agency and autonomy have to do with Reiki
  • How we can respect ourselves and our clients in our Reiki practice
  • What to do when empathy gets in the way
  • The difference between healing and holding space to heal
  • And more!
