I loved my Indian teacher for my Reiki training...but we didn't learn much Reiki, and spent most of our time talking about philosophy, pranayama, and God. So, when I met Jason in my Marma Massage course, I decided that I'd do another training. Jason is a Reiki master from England, who spends a fair bit of time here in India. In my massage course he taught me so very much about the chinese meridians, and chinese medicine - along with some reiki pointers, so as soon as the massage course was finished I signed up for a training with him. Him, his girlfriend Allegra, Olga and I met in the morning and spent about two hours hiking up to a waterfall. We walked along a shanti village road, encountering many a friendly locals. While we were walking up towards the waterfall, we did a "walking meditation", which was BRILLIANT and worth the price of admission. Then once we arrived at our destination, I stood underneath the cold water and let it pound down on my crown chakra as I visualized my sushumna, ida and pingala nadis all being cleansed. It was a bit emotional, but powerful and beautiful. Afterwards I sat in meditation as Jason did an "attunement", passing along the energy of HIS masters and opening up the energy lines in my hands. We had done a bit of practice before the attunement - and I was impressed at how hot (energy) my hands got. Well afterwards I could have boiled water with my hands! We hiked back down and had some lunch as he answered any questions that we had. And then, practice. I was able to identify to the two injuries that my client had, which was very exciting. And afterwards she said that she felt a thousand times better. I'm so excited to start incorporating this into my bodywork sessions once I get back home!!! Yeeeww!!!
