Lineages of Founders of IHReiki

Frans and Bronwen Stiene, founders of IHReiki, first studied as Reiki Teachers in a westernised form of Reiki in 1998. It was this initial taste of the system of Reiki that inspired them to look further into the system's roots and to retrain in various Japanese lineages. They were trying to not only find out about the evolution of the system of Reiki but to develop their personal practices.

Below are some of the Japanese lineages which they have also studied under.

What does a Lineage Mean?

The Usui Reiki Ryoho lineage as taught by the International House of Reiki aims to reflect the practices that were taught by Usui Mikao during his lifetime. The more research that is completed into this area, the more the teachings develop – it is an ongoing study. There are two areas in which the International House of Reiki teachers continue this study.

One is in practical manual research where books are read, people are contacted etc… and ideas are pieced together. This also includes studying with different teachers who offer their own insight into the field that is being researched. Choosing a teacher is very important as the teachings must support development rather than sidetrack it

The second area of study is in personal practice. One cannot understand an energetic practice without personal development. Without a direct experience of an energetic system only a rational, and therefore limited, understanding is gained. Teachers of the International House of Reiki commit to practicing the system, not just teaching it.

The combination of these two areas creates the Usui Reiki Ryoho lineage as taught by the International House of Reiki. It is the entire teachings that are being handed down – energetic and practical. These reflect the oneness that is achieved by connecting mind (experiential) and body (practical) – both must be utilised to gain a complete understanding of the teachings.

 

We work together to offer teachings that are energetically strong and also technically insightful and truthful. It is this package as a whole, our lineage, that we pass on to you.
