Show Notes

Welcome back to another amazing episode of ReikiCafe Radio! This week on the show, join Christine Renee as she interviews colleague and fellow Reiki Master Bruce Taylor on the Shamanic roots of Reiki healing. Bruce Taylor is a Reiki Master and Holistic Wellness teacher with profound insight on the roots of Reiki healing after his time studying with traditional teachers in Hong Kong and Japan. 

In this episode, Christine and Bruce explore the possibility that Mikao Usui was a shamanic practitioner, discussing the evidence for Sensei Usui's shamanic practice, the energetic significance of Mount Kurama in Japan, how Usui's culture impacted his practice, and more. 

Along the way, they discuss:

  • The true definition of Reiki energy according to Japanese kanji
  • How mountain asceticism informed Usui's Reiki revelation
  • The role of ego in our Reiki practice
  • Why we need to let go of our stories
  • The significance of the temples, symbols, and deities in Japan
  • And so much more!
