Gnostic Reiki differs from most Reiki sites, in that while the majority of the systems available through Gnostic Reiki can be used in therapy and for energetic healing, which tends to be the main focus of modern Western Reiki practitioners, our focus is more upon Energy Systems as a path for spiritual development and training.
While many of the systems we offer are Western or Egyptian in orientation, we also will be offering work in wide variety of African, Asian and Arabic magical systems, including:
Djinn & spirit energy work
Hindu wisdom & deities
Of course, we have also been also superbly trained to provide the full suite of Lightarian and Angelic Reiki attunements and traditional Usui Reiki.
