Reiki has been practiced in mainland United States since the early 70’s, but remains relatively unknown in many parts of the country.  It is not taught in the traditional sense of instruction, but is transferred to the student during the Reiki class.  The Reiki Master passes the ability to connect fully and tap directly into the source of this unlimited supply of “life force energy” by way of “attunements.”  No specific intellectual capacity is required, nor is it dependent on one’s spiritual development.  Once attuned, the ability to connect to the energy is never lost.
