In this book...with regard to Reiki, Reverend Mindrum quoted Dr. Mikao Usui (referred to as the father of a form of spiritual practice known as Reiki), as writing that he shared the gift of Reiki with the world for the wellbeing of humanity, so that "a great many people will experience the blessing of the divine.” 

Presented by

Susan Maney-Eggleton

Certified Reiki Practitioner

Sue has a strong faith in God and a joy for helping people and animals. She is a long-time member of the Otisville-Mt. Hope Presbyterian Church, has been involved in multiple ministries and mission trips, and is always seeking ways to make a difference.

Before committing to a Reiki practice, Sue spent time in prayer, did her research on Reiki, and consulted with trusted advisors to ensure that this was the right path for her. "Reiki and Christian Healing" by the Rev. Alice Mindrum was one of the books that helped her along the way.

Sue also brings a wealth of knowledge, wisdom, genuine curiosity and care, as well as humility that makes her an extraordinary practitioner and the perfect person to lead this series. (Click here to learn more about Sue and the Fire and Spirit team)

Join Sue in reading and discussing this insightful and thought-provoking book which helps to bridge the gap for the curious and those concerned or struggling with religious identity and the gift of Reiki. While reading "Reiki and Christian Healing", you will discover correlations with Biblical scripture as well as other traditions, such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism.

This book promises to be helpful for anyone, of any faith, and at any level of the Reiki practice. The Reverend Alice Mindrum is quoted as saying, "...Reiki is compatible with any religion but limited to none..." (41).

We look forward to seeing you...and for what you will bring to our discussions.

Although we recommend attending the whole series, we welcome you to come when you can. To help you prepare for each discussion, we created a "READ THIS FIRST" section to outline what will be covered that day. If you have any questions regarding this series, please contact
