Reiki (霊気?, English pronunciation: /ˈreɪkiː/) is a spiritual practice[1] developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui.

There are two main branches of Reiki, commonly referred to as Traditional Japanese Reiki and Western Reiki. Within both Traditional and Westernised forms of Reiki, there are three forms of degrees, commonly referred to as the First, Second, and Master/Teacher degree.

We have been indoctrinated by our institutions-governmental, religious and scientific-to look outside ourselves to find what we need. Likewise, our institutions have instilled unhealthy fears and emotions that hold us back from our potential if we pay too much attention to them: guilt, anxiety, depression, debt, and fear of eternal damnation-and that’s just for starters.
