UREI 220 Advanced Okuden: Usui Reiki Inner & Outer Teachings
Donzoko: The Depths

COURSE DESCRIPTION
$ZERO (100 Hours) FIFTY 2.0 hrs. Seminars
Cost of class is free, however students will need to purchase associated class materials unless a need be greater. Students are encouraged to make a donation to any local community organisation such as Black Lives Matter, Citizen Action NY, the Albany Social Justice Center, Albany Free School, Grafton Peace Pagoda; or Densho, a grassroots organization dedicated to preserving, educating, and sharing the story of World War II-era incarceration of Japanese Americans in order to deepen understandings of American history and inspire action for equity.

This class is offered as an ecourse and locally with an interactive online component. Advanced Level focuses on drinking the tea in order to heal self and others. Self-cultivation of the Gokai needs practical application in everyday life not only for us as practitioners but in a way that impacts our neighborhoods and communities. This course expands approximately 11 months, which will give each student hands-on practice and facilitate a better understanding of traditional Usui Reiki philosophy and cultural context. It is here where students are introduced to Chinese Magical Medicine, epidemonology, Buddho-Taoist exorcism, Tendai buddhist concepts of omnipresence and emptiness through the lens of chado ‘the way of tea;’ the hard truths we must embrace as individuals and society. Students will dive deeper into the influences of Taoism, various esoteric Buddhist practices, Shintoism, martial arts, and Chan Zen on Usui Reiki’s roots while confronting racism in America in a way that communicates compassion.  Students will be required to complete 10 hours of unpaid reiki therapy and 10 hours of community service at a local place of worship, garden, park, hospital, homeless shelter, nursing home, or non-profit. In order to receive certification, students will keep a journal documenting a Usui 21-day detox for purification and energetic clarity; and 19-day challenge, over the period of this 50-week course.

HEALING TYRANNY

America’s Cry for Help

“…WE SEE THIS ROTATING DOOR OF PEOPLE SEEKING SILENCE, RELIEF, AND CATHARSIS. WE ALSO SEE THEIR NEEDS JUST BY WALKING AROUND. AS HEALERS WE NEEDN’T WAIT ANY LONGER FOR PEOPLE TO MAKE APPOINTMENTS…IN THIS DAY AND AGE, THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO ARE AFRAID, DEPRESSED, OR HEARTBROKEN. NOW IS NO TIME AS A HEALER TO HIDE…”

These be dark times healers.

Whatever your political affiliation, I am sure you can see the rampant surge of hate crimes and acts of violence filling the news.  The Trump cabinet is filling with representatives who have made it very clear their position on the environment, social sciences, education, and the health sector: all areas where many healers live, breathe, and work.  I have pondered this long and hard and see that we healers have been for a long time very wrong. For weeks now I have meditated upon the meaning of this election, is it doom or is there a silver lining? What lessons are there to find, embrace, and talk with?

As healers, let’s face it, we often are very superficial. We rarely get to the meat of an issue for several reasons. Perhaps the client does not want to dive too deep. Or they begin to and then cancel their next session, and we all know what happens after that: they never come back. Retention in any field is difficult, and when ours is a profession of the deep stuff, when our job is to be the mirror for people so that they may heal and not merely place a Band-Aid on the situation. It can get very annoying after a while. And yet, we see this rotating door of people seeking silence, relief, and catharsis. We also see their needs just by walking around. As healers we needn’t wait any longer for people to make appointments, especially when you learn the techniques of Gyoshi Ho and Koki Ho.  In this day and age, there are so many people out there who are afraid, depressed, or heartbroken. Now is no time as a healer to hide in our healing rooms.

Now is the time to act, and utilize the Gokai of Kindness in our everyday lives. There is no time like the time of tyranny for a healer to hear the call of humanity. There are so many marginalized people who are taken advantage of, who have for centuries been oppressed, beaten, and manipulated. As healers, our job is to heal on a holistic field, and if we ourselves are not staying aware, if we ourselves are not being mindful of these issues; our clients and our higher selves are doomed. If we fail now, we fail so much more than just ourselves. All the lifetimes of karma that have gotten us to this moment, this life where we have taken the role of healers, and now what do we do with it? Hide, keep our heads in the sand and “let go and let god?” No. That in my opinion is the ultimate abuse of privilege. Our duty is to grow, to help others “sit with their yuck.” To transmute, and transform situations. To mold and yes manipulate energies for the betterment of not only a few, but for all sentient beings. The world is crying- this is no time to wall oneself off. It is a time to be the one to break down Byoki boundaries, not create new ones.

Peace and healing are not static energies, they are a force, so it our prerogative to share that peace, and be that peace we wish to see in the world. We are the healers, and leaders of our communities. They look to us for support, guidance, and strength. I believe firmly that now is no time to play or think small. The mighty oak cannot forever remain a sapling. So use your skills and power. Be the healer I know you to be! With tact, with diligence, and of course with compassion.  We are the defenders and protectors of old, and no tyrant or bigot will harm our friends and family.

Heiwa beloveds.

Unlearning White Supremacy 101

white-people

As Healers we have a responsibility to heal the physical,emotional, mental, and spiritual sufferings of our communities. Through the teaching mirror we can unlearn institutionalized racism within ourselves and society. We can be healers that show up for racial justice and challenge white supremacy wherever we see it.

That includes our healing circles and own lives. That includes when we are in session, working through the energy blockages of our patients. Heart’s work is not meant to be easy. Peace work is not meant to be easy. But this challenge offers us incredible merit and incredible good karma. Let us all make Usui Sensei proud!

Click through this series in order. Sit with each one. Meditate. Educate yourself and reach out. May it help to heal some of your own ingrained prejudices, and give you the strength to continue to do all the healing actions you do! 

Learn mind. Breathe action.

*PLEASE NOTE* This list is by no means exhaustive, and is by no means supposed to be an easy challenge. When we confront our preconceived notions, with whatever subject matter, our energy centers are shifted. With each new insight there is a moment of enlightenment. With consistent practice and consistent diligence of looking into the teaching mirrors, we build up an attunement to these new phases of reality and levels of awareness. The world is shifting, and we healers are particularly sensitive to these shifts, but dear ones, please take heart. And please take courage. Just for today, your fears and anger that may arise in reading some of these materials is the natural consequence of living within a realm of ignorance. Energy work and healing again is not an easy process, and any healer or teacher who says otherwise, obviously has not done the work, and has not seen the connections that these things have upon our energetic fields, emotional-mental bodies, and spirits.

PLEASE ALSO NOTE: That the reason I have written this is that deep within my bones, I was disheartened and disappointed by MANY of my so-called “spiritual,” friends and mentors jump on the “All Lives Matter” bandwagon. Dear friends, if you have not by now realised why this phrase is racist and glosses over this issue with new-age rainbow glitter pseudo-morality, YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM. But, don’t worry, just for today. This is not meant to be an affront to your practice. This is my way of attuning you to this shift of energy that is now finally coming to light and my intention for you is to unlearn the various reasons why this is so. So please, do not get disheartened, but buckle-in for a massive shift in your awareness and consciousness. Yes, these are two different things. ;-p

Tsukimi Birthday Wishes

japanese-birthday-cat-quote-image

Usui Sensei’s Birthday is always a wonderful chance to come together and celebrate his teachings because FUN FACT he probably never celebrated a single birthday! There wasn’t really a custom of holding Japanese birthdays until after WWII. Before that, New Year’s Day was the day in which everyone got older. This was because the ancient custom was that everyone got older on New Year’s Day, not the day they were born. Since then, however, due to globalisation, and assimilation, Japan has changed in that regard.

So, even though Usui Sensei may roll around in his grave for this, we can still honour his spirit via his teachings today, this week, or at the very least during this week’s full moon, dedicating this Tsukimi in a special way.

On 15 August 1865, the man who changed the way we look at bioenergetics, Buddhism, health, and enlightenment was birthed into this world. Once, twice, perhaps for the upteenth time on this planet. Who knows? Maybe it was his first lifetime, although I doubt it.

Regardless, this man who at about the ripe age of 57, created a school clinic in which healers from all over Japan could come and learn, hands-on, the ability to care for people’s suffering manifest in their anger, worries, ingratitude, sloth, and indifference.

See, some people are just late bloomers.

Last year, I wrote a comical 150th birthday roast for Usui Sensei. This year, I want to challenge each of us to go a bit deeper into our practice. Meditate upon it, and ask ourselves WWUD- What Would Usui Do?

full moon boat

Because some of us may have forgotten the tradition of honouring one’s teachers.

Let’s face it, many of us (especially us Americans) do not practice Reiki the way Usui Sensei did. Many of us lack the patience. Many of us lack the cultural context to understand the subtle complexities of his techniques and teachings. And really, many of us would rather play with our crystal collections than actually go hiking up a mountain, fast, and meditate for 21-days. Many of us would rather play doctor instead of doing community service, and opening up a free school-clinic like Usui did after the horrific Tanto Earthquake hit in 1923. Not many of us believe in ourselves the way Usui Sensei did. Not many of us have the courage and dedication that Usui Sensei had. Not many of us are as selfless as Usui Sensei was.

Or are we?

Today is a day to reflect upon these questions, and ask what we really want our Reiki Practice to look like? Do we want it to be yet another superficial mass media fluffy bunny business? Or do we want it to be down to earth, and about helping people grow?

Many of us have forgotten Reiki’s roots. What is that phrase? “So many seek the truth in the stars that which can only be discovered in the tree’s roots.” So many healers now a-days are trapped in the ethers, in lofty abstract pseudoscience, and have forgotten about the beauty of meditating upon a waka poem or sweating doing hard manual labour in a rock garden. So many healers now a-days are captivated by technology and angels and being a “starseed” that they forget that they are made of this earth, of the Ancestors, of the winds and rain and sunlight. Not that one is more important than the other, but we certainly have strayed away from Usui’s teachings, and I think many of the problems that face modern healers: feeling drained/zapped, feeling afraid of so-called “demons,” or feeling depressed or lost is because of this. Our awareness has expanded but we have failed to meet our awareness with practice. With mindfulness practice. With the universal wabi sabi techniques that Usui and his students incorporated into Reiki in order to reach that level of mastery and skill. Why else do we tend to dabble in so many different workshoppes and self-help certificates these days, besides simple curiosity? Is it that we are still too afraid to just sit, listen, and look in the mirror? Are we seeking so fervently to understand and cope with these new talents and abilities that have been given us seemingly without an operator’s manual?

At the end of the day, we have to remember that Reiki is an Eastern practice of mindful nurturing. Based upon the strict mental disciplines of martial arts, Buddhism, Shugendo, and Shinto. We can use this day to pull some of that wisdom and diligence into our lives, minds, and actions.

So make yourself a cup of tea, light some incense, and meditate upon the cup. Meditate upon the tea, meditate upon the Gokai, and his teachings. And then drink them up, heartily, wishing the teacher of us all a very happy birthday: “tanjoubi omedetou gozaimasu.” 誕生日おめでとうございます

Bowing peacefully three times to you,
remember that there is a joyful, courageous, grateful, diligent, and kind healer within you.

Ki is manifest in our emotions and in our senses. Me must utilize all of them to produce healing in this world, not only healing touch, but also healing sight; speaking healing words and cooking healing tastes, healing music and listening to other’s truths; healing aromas with dirt, ocean, wind, herbs, and fire; and healing spirit with grace and patience. Manifest a world with every daily action by affecting your environment. You were put here to do good work. So get out there and work it! Heal with all your emotions and senses. Show others how to handle their anger and fear, through joy and courage. Invoke diligence and dedication, showing others their worth and witnessing your own; be grateful and appreciative; and throw about your surroundings compassionate kindness with every step and breath you take. Enact, transmute, and be the peace.
