      Animal Reiki

    • “In Shinto, heaven, earth and humanity are different manifestations of one life energy.”

      Motohisa Yamakage
      The Essence of Shinto - Japan’s Spiritual Heart

    • “In this sense, every manifestation in the cosmos is a manifestation of ’me’. All this should not be understood only at the rational level. It must be experienced intuitively as we access our inner kami.”

      Motohisa Yamakage
      The Essence of Shinto - Japan’s Spiritual Heart

    • “However, it must also be said that in Japan, as in other advanced industrial societies, a climate of spiritual ignorance has arisen. This leads, among other things, to a casual, ‘mix and match’ approach of spiritual practice.”

      Motohisa Yamakage
      The Essence of Shinto - Japan’s Spiritual Heart

    • “So you begin this study by training the ch’i by means of technique. After your beginning studies, you still discipline your ch’i, but move away from technique.”

      William Scott Wilson
      The Demon’s Sermon on the Martial Arts

    • “When the mind resides in technique, ch’i is hindered and is not in harmony.”

      William Scott Wilson
      The Demon’s Sermon on the Martial Arts

    • “When there is nothing in your mind, your ch’i is in harmony and tranquil. When your ch’i is in harmony and tranquil, it will be active and flowing, but it has no fixed form; and without using strength, it will be naturally strong.”

      William Scott Wilson
      The Demon’s Sermon on the Martial Arts

    • “The truth is something beyond our ability to describe, beyond our thinking. Truth can also mean ‘the wonderful source’, wonderful beyond description. This is the source of all being.”
