When living in community, whether this is a Reiki Community or our local community or our families, forgiveness and reconciliation are key. In the Hawaiian tradition, Ho'oponopono, these elements are a vital part of the community philosophy and daily practice. Reiki gives us the capacity to live this with those that are around us. Now, as the global community gathers and forms through social media and the urge to come together without separation, this practice can give us the grounding to... More

Paul's past interview in which he describes his experience in a religious community and then a living community, highlights the qualities of both and the va... More
