What is Reiki?

With Bernd Monecke

 Reiki is the strength of the heart, and of love.

Reiki is the ability to activate, direct, and apply cosmic vital energy in the required situations to create an energy balance and promote healing.

In this sense, Reiki supplements all healing procedures in the physical, mental and spiritual sphere.

Reiki is a path of silence, of meditation.

Change takes place when the inner flow of energy is given space, without activity, without will. It is then that we can approach the core of the being, inside and around ourselves. In the holistic sense, Reiki has a positive and strengthening effect on both giving and receiving.

The effects of the power of Reiki

In a Reiki treatment, the following mutually supportive effects can arise:

  • Deep relaxation
  • Acute and chronic body symptoms may improve
  • Dissolving of energetic and physical blockages
  • Mental and emotional clarification
  • Clarification and deeper contact with one's own feelings
  • Nourishing the energy of life
  • Sensitivity to sensory perceptions
  • Detoxification


Bernd Monecke – My experiences with Reiki

Since 1995, I have been working with Reiki. The gentle power of Reiki has been supporting me since then, in my work as a healing practitioner, Reiki teacher, Shiatsu teacher, and Qi Gong teacher.
As a Reiki teacher, since 1998, I have given courses in Reiki in the Usui-System, from beginner level to teacher-training level.
I teach and practice in the beautiful rooms of the Bamboo Garden Practice.

What personally motivated me to deepen my focus on Reiki is the simplicity and clarity, the tender power that this path can provide.

The world presents itself as a mirror of ourselves. If we accept what is, honestly and with open heart, change can happen.
When we allow a channel for Reiki to function, the energy of life can work through us.

Doing from non-doing.

Reiki becomes an attitude to life, which influences me in my everyday life, in my courses and in my treatments.
