Reiki lineage traces the line of history through which Reiki attunement has passed from initiate to initiate. Each individual carries the teaching of their respective Reiki Master—and is connected to the same source, or spiritual, energy—while encouraged to carry forward their own unique spirit and style throughout the development of their own personal practice.
Reiki training is rooted in a consistent framework, yet does not in any way promote religious dogma or attachment to ritual. The practice of Reiki is—as Reiki energy, itself, is—a living, flowing, evolving pathway. Reiki is constant in nature, while unique in the expression of its form.
