Why Meditation Matters
For thousands of years, people from all cultures and traditions have talked about the importance of meditation, mindfulness,...
At Los Gatos Reiki, our mission is to help us all connect with our Whole Self, through healing, teaching, and community. While our focus is on the traditional teachings from Mikao Usui, when applicable we will share techniques from other traditions as well. All traditions are ultimately talking about the same Source, whether you call it the Great Bright Light, the Tao, the Brahman, the fundamental ground of being, or simply everything. The mysteries of energy, spirit and healing are too complex for any one tradition to describe fully, and when need be we can draw the best from each.
We encourage a balance between tradition and experimentation. In the tradition of Western Empiricism, there is a time to suspend disbelief and try something whole-heartedly to see if it works. However, there is also a time to try doing things a new way, experimenting to see what works and why. And, there is always a time to unask the question, to transcend it in a completely new way, or to let go just be Reiki.
Our primary focus is to help people lead richer, happier, more fulfilling lives, by learning to work with their energy, to be able to ground, center. and balance themselves whenever need be (even in the most difficult circumstances that life can bring), and to open and awaken to connect with the entirety of their self.
