Cheltenham | 4 Day Remember Your Innate Light Retreat | 27-30 November 2020

November 27 @ 9:00 am - November 30 @ 5:00 pm


Learn very specific meditations that will help you gain a better understanding of Mikao Usui’s teachings and noticeably deepen your Reiki and/or Meditation journey.

Frans Stiene will also hold an expanded space so you can have a direct experience of your own inner light.

The game plan:

Frans has been hosting these Reiki Retreats for many years now and infuses them with great humour, knowledge of Japanese spiritual teachings, and his own depth of practice.

The sessions will focus on esoteric Japanese practices and techniques to stimulate and define your Reiki practice. They will also deepen your understanding of the Reiki symbols and mantras.

These teachings are very unique and not often taught by many modern meditation teachers. Some of these are ancient Japanese spiritual traditions that can be traced back to the 7th and 8th century.

They include:
-sitting meditation – mindfulness practice, chanting, moving your energy
-moving meditation – walking meditation for example
-sitting/moving meditations – old ancient Shinto, Shugendo, and Buddhist practices

Due to Frans’ personal journey, he often includes some 4000-year-old Wu (Chinese: shamanic) practices within these retreats. He was taught these ancient teachings by his late Taoist Master.

Some of the practices include the whole group, while others are in pairs or in smaller groups.

Be advised: if you sit near Frans during the practice sessions, you may become his favorite prop to demonstrate exercises. This may cause you to laugh harder than usual. Another side effect: all the participants will remember your name.

This retreat is perfect for you if you…

-Are interested in deepening your meditation practice or spiritual journey, no matter your level or lineage.

-Want to have a better understanding of Mikao Usui’s teachings, the Reiki symbols, and mantras.

-Want a direct experience of the Japanese esoteric practices that lie behind Reiki practice.

-Want to expand your Reiki community and share your practice with fellow students who follow the same teachings.

Want to discover what Frans does after hours. Spoiler alert: he is pretty much as high-energy and light-hearted as in class unless there is music. Then …the show is on!
