Thank you for being so completely and honestly who you are. You give me courage to continue the journey to my essential essence despite any difficulties along the way.

I’ve just finished another amazing retreat with my teacher, Frans Stiene, at the Sequoia Retreat Center. What an amazing four days! Thanks so much to Frans for sharing so many spiritual meditations and practices with all of us, and helping us to deepen our connection to the Japanese origins of Reiki. I think it will take me months to integrate all that I’ve experienced:) It was wonderful to have several SARA members there so that we could spend time together in the Reiki space. I hope many more of my students can join us again next year!!

Frans a truly amazing 4 days. Everything was so perfect. It is such an honor to be on this path with you. Thank you from the depths of my heart!

The annual USA Reiki Retreat held in amongst these awe inspiring sequoias is once again over. As always everyone who participated has had an intensive learning experience while enjoying each other’s company. What more could you ask for in life?

    Hi All,
    Thank you so much for the amazing retreat, it was wonderful to be with so many like minded Reiki people.

    In the photo’s we do a walking meditation, connecting with the trees to help you to understand oneness, hands on healing sessions, and some other Japanese spiritual practices.

    Frans, Thank you so much for sharing with us so many wonderful meditations that will help us in our daily practice.  The meditations are so simple but I am still feeling the affects of them four days later. It seems like it only takes seconds to drop into that deep space I felt during the retreat.  Hope to keep this space and the energy of all in the class with me until next year.

    Your generosity and support throughout these past few years has been life changing. I am so honored and humbled to study with you, Frans.  By pushing yourself and your practice to new heights, you create an easy path for your students to follow.

    with love and gratitude, Leah

    Frans, you are my inspiration and my guide! The Reiki retreat was fantastic, once again! Your knowledge, your passion, and your energy are deep and expansive. Your teaching/leading style is both firm and flexible…and always enjoyable. I felt a stillness and deep connection with spiritual energy all weekend, with the help of our meditations and, of course, you. And, that continues as I practice back at home. Thank you thank you thank you!
    Love, Joyce
