Lancaster PA Reiki Retreat USA | 11-14 October 2019

October 11, 2019 @ 9:00 am - October 14, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

Reiki Courses
Pre-Requisites: All lineages and Reiki Levels Welcome
Join Frans Stiene for a unique kind of retreat at the Lancaster Marriott at Penn Square, PA. 
Learn four 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.
Usually, Frans only teaches these meditations one on one!
He will also hold an expanded space so you can have a direct experience of your own inner light.
October 11, 9:00 am to October 14, 5:00 pm
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.
Arrive Friday morning and leave Monday afternoon for four-full days of immersion in deep spiritually energetic work.
We will practice three hours in the morning and three hours in the afternoon, with lots of time in the evening to share healing, stories, and fun with your fellow participants.
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!

Comments from Retreatees

“I got so much from the retreat… such depth and full energetic realizations. I uncovered a buried trauma that has to effect me on so many levels probably most of the time. You taught us so many tools and methods, techniques and meditations to help us heal and expand in our inner spiritual growth…. I feel like I have what I need to help support my healings in this area, as well as ALL areas. This path just keeps getting deeper and wider, yet more and more expansive. In your teachings, you take such powerful spiritual teachings that have the ability to tap into our inner essence and soul, and make them attainable to all of us with such a fun, light spirited delivery. You support us by letting us feel that depth by your being it, holding that space for us. You are incredibly inspirational and I feel very blessed to be one of your students. Thank-you for being True to your way and you’re being and sharing it so fully with us! “- Sarah Dailey

“Retreat was an amazing 4 days of personal healing, deepening purpose & practice, disintegrating into five elements and integrating back again thru energy exercises, chanting, meditations and hands on healing.
