Independent Karuna Studies
According to the rules that govern the Karuna Reiki system, the "Karuna Reiki" Attunements can only be passed to Reiki Master/Teachers. As for teaching this particular method of Reiki, the founder of the Karuna Reiki will not allow me to teach the course online, unless I call it something other than the trademarked name; "Karuna Reiki." Thus the "Independent Karuna Studies." In addition, while I am registered with the Center, I am not "Center Certified." Why? Because at the time I was Attuned to the Karuna Reiki, I could not afford all of the Center's fees and such. The courses, registration fees, books, etc., etc., offered by the Center are rather costly. I'm not saying that it's a bad thing to charge so much for these courses. I'm only saying that I can't afford it. Since the time of my Karuna Attunement, the registration form and fees have changed. It is not mandatory that I sign the new registration form, since I am registered under the old program. However, by not signing the new form, I must also state that "The (Karuna Reiki) classes and treatments offered here do not meet current standards," and "current standards" prohibit teaching the class online.
I'm going to start out with something that is used in both the Usui and the Karuna methods of healing. Much of what is taught in one tradition was taken from and/or incorporated into another system.
