Why Reiki and Acting?

 

As actors and creative beings, we allow an inspirational energy to move through us in order to give life to our projects. The same is true for Reiki. This healing art method from Japan is used widely in hospitals and by individuals throughout the world as a means to clear blocked and stagnant energy. Like the creative process, Reiki is fluid and helps us balance, center, and restore. As instruments for creative expression, it is important that we can tune into ourselves on as many levels as possible to maximize our abilities, gifts, and talents.
