What is Yoga?
“What happens as we grow spiritually? Is there a step-by-step process that everyone goes through―all spiritual seekers, including those of any or no religious persuasion―as they gradually work their way upward, until they achieve the highest state of Self-realization? About 2200 years ago, a great spiritual master of India named Patanjali described this process, and presented humanity with a clear-cut, step-by-step outline of how all truth seekers and saints achieve divine union. He called this universal inner experience and process “yoga” or “union.” His collection of profound aphorisms―a true world scripture―has been dubbed Patanjali's Yoga Sutras.” — Swami Kriyananda

What is Reiki?

“Reiki is an energy healing technique that promotes relaxation, reduces stress and anxiety through gentle touch. Reiki practitioners use their hands to deliver energy to your body, improving the flow and balance of your energy to support healing. Mikao Usui developed reiki in the early 1900s, deriving the term from the Japanese words “rei,” meaning “universal,” and “ki,” which refers to the vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Now, reiki is used all over the world, including in hospitals and hospices, to complement other forms of health treatments.” – Cleveland Clinic
