Reiki


Reiki at ASC

 

Starting Sunday, May 17th, Reiki sessions will be available to All Saints’ parishioners and friends! Reiki is Japanese meaning Universal Life Force/Energy. It was developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist monk, Mikao Usui. One of his principles, which is still taught today, is:

 

 

Just for today, I will live the attitude of gratitude

Just for today, I will not worry

Just for today, I will not anger

Just for today, I will do my work honestly

Just for today, I will show love and respect for every living thing

–Dr. Mikao Usui

 

Reiki was brought to Hawaii in 1937 by Hawayo Takata, a Hawaiian of Japanese descent who learned Reiki from Dr. Usui. During her lifetime, Mrs. Takata trained 22 “Masters” who in turn trained other Masters who have taken the practice of Reiki throughout the United States and the world.

Reiki is a complementary health approach where practitioners place their hands lightly on or just above a fully clothed person who reclines or sits comfortably. Reiki has been used for stress reduction and relaxation. For many it is like meditation. Session can last up to 30 minutes while sitting in a chair or an hour lying on a Reiki table. Some people may feel warmth or tingling where the Reiki practitioner place his/her hands.

Pat Barnett has her Reiki Master an dis offering Reiki free to parishioners and for a donation to All Saints’ from other who are interested in a Reiki session. The sessions are limited, so please email the parish administrator at parishadmin@allsaint.org for available times.

“Pat is indeed a Reiki master. Reiki can bring you peace and healing. I found the experience to be profoundly spiritual as well. Pat prays silently for you as she practices Reiki. Her prayers and gentle touch invite you simply to be: to be free from fears, anxieties, and pain, to live in the moment. We are greatly blessed to have this gift in our parish!” -Jan Logan


Contemplative Prayer Group


The Conteplative Prayer Group meets the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month from 7-8:30PM in the Parish Library.  It is NOT mandatory to come to every meeting – this is available to help you build a closer relationship with God in a peaceful, silence centered setting that have been expressed beautifully in teachings of Rev. Cynthia Bourgeault and Father Keating.  We do share briefly with each other; not for counseling, but to let others know where God is in our lives and pray for support.  This is a safe, loving community.

For September through December, it is an open meeting, so people who are interested in learning more may join us.  We meet until Mid-July then take off until after Labor Day.  For more questions call Pat Barnett 609-937-4667.  To read about Centering Prayer; Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening Cynthia Bourgeault.
