I had the opportunity to meet Tomas Særmark and Cristina Gonzalez Navarro – two of the Reiki masters which we met last Saturday. I barely knew Reiki when Cristina said that she’s visiting the Philippines to conduct Reiki workshop. Obviously, she was friends to some of the people on Facebook whom I share interest about meditation.
Reiki is a Japanese form of relaxation, meditation, and healing. The masters (Tomas and Cristina) said that upon finishing the workshop, we can start using it for people who needs it especially those who needs physical and spiritual healing. The couple started the workshop with a brief introduction about the Japanese spiritual practice which is Reiki including its Five Principles:
- Do not be angry,
- Do not worry,
- Be grateful,
- Work with diligence,
- Be kind to people.
Since I moved to Manila, I became very interested with meditation and the different forms of spiritual healing. It may look and sound weird to others but we can all take these stuff similar to how we approach religion and spirituality. We NEED to believe they work the same way as believers believe that God exists.
The main Reiki workshop started with attunement (not sure with the spelling). This stage involves “receiving” Reiki. The second part is the application, and third a brief meditation.
I enjoyed the workshop so much add to the fact that Cristina is Spanish from Madrid. I had the opportunity to practice my Spanish speaking skills during her stay. We took her to a Gratitude restaurant at The Fort, Taguig after the workshop. Sharing the pictures we took during the day.
