karunasubheadKaruna is a Sanskrit word and is used in Hinduism and Buddhism. It is translated to mean any action that is taken to diminish the suffering of others and could also be described as “compassionate action.” Karuna Reiki is the motivating quality of all enlightened beings who are working to end suffering.

Beyond Usui – Karuna Reiki
Instructor: Marion Hakata

Karuna Reiki was developed by William L. Rand, founder of the International Center for Reiki Training and is taught only to people who are Reiki Masters and is the next step once Usui Reiki is completed. Our philosophy is to honor and respect all Reiki students and teachers regardless of their lineage, organizational affiliation, or the kind of Reiki they practice. Marion Hakata received her training from William Rand when he visited Sacramento in 2000.

The energy facilitates multi-dimensional healing. It builds upon, expands, and increases one’s light attained in Usui Reiki to effect healing for the greatest good of humanity and the planet. You will meet the embodiment and spirit of compassionate action represented by Avalokiteshvara and the other Karuna healers.

The Two Levels of Karuna Reiki Training

Karuna is complete with 2 levels, 2 attunements, 8 treatment symbols. Those who take the Master training will also be attuned to 4 master symbols. The energy has a very definite feeling to it, like being wrapped in a warm and loving blanket of energy. Clients often sense that additional, powerful spiritual Reiki healers are actually physically facilitating their session. Karuna deeply grounds the spiritual energy into one’s physical vehicle. A Karuna Reiki session noticeably provides healing on all levels at once, whereas a Usui Reiki session will gently facilitate healing on one level at a time.
