About Mahaananda Reiki

Mahaananda Reiki is the Reiki of Great Bliss.  The course content raises the consciousness and healing power of the Reiki practitioner as well as teaching the techniques of Reiki.

You are free to choose not to follow the Mahaananda teaching, and take only the Reiki courses.

If someone who is already a Reiki Master in another tradition is interested in the Mahaananda part of this course to continue their training as a healer, there is no need to take the Reiki I and II courses again, but initiation and all other courses are required.

Kuji-In is an esoteric series of meditations that begins with the acknowledgement of our existence as a Soul, and shows us the path to enlightenment.  It is popularly known as the high meditation of martial arts warriors (such as Samurai and Ninja, who attain supernatural powers with diligent practice) and can be found in martial arts movies.  The Kuji-In techniques were originally crafted by ancient spiritual masters as a method to expand consciousness--a purely spiritual practice.  This complex meditation incorporates these five aspects:  mudra (hand position), mantra (form of Sanskrit prayer), focus point (chakra), energy visualization and spiritual philosophy.

Soul Stretching  (2-hour class)                                                        $35
Stretch your awareness of the Soul with transmigration and the Siddhis.  Transmigration is a technique we use to both taste and influence the state of being of another.  We become conscious of the state of being and affect it as we actively experience our Soul extending outside our own body.  We will also learn the first two Siddhis, a type of passive meditation taught by Krishna which expands our perception beyond the human senses.  This class will include practice of transmigration techniques using Sanskrit mantras (a form of prayer) as the method of affecting another.

The Unbreakable Gaze  (90 minute class)                                     $35
Learn meditation techniques to unscatter your mind and concentrate your power.  Bring your attention to the present moment with the Five Breath meditation; embody the soul by toning the Hebrew vowels; and  practice sitting in a state of no-mind with Fixity meditation.  Refining these methods will expand your healing and manifestation abilities.

The Spiritual Essence of Chakras   (2-hour class)                         $35
This class explores the human, soul and divine experience of the Chakra:  the human experience of vital energy,  the soul lessons of each individual chakra, and the divine essence of the universal chakra.  The course is based on a variety of esoteric Hindu, Buddhist, Christian and Kabbalistic teachings, and is a summary of the wisdom from the book "The Esoteric World of Chakras" by SukhiDevi.
