In remembrance of my Reiki teacher, Margaret Ann Case (01/10/53~02/18/10) of Reiki Arts Continuum, I named Reiki Rhapsody after her teachings and also her love of music.  She was an Opera singer before she became a Reiki teacher.  From my teacher’s teachings and mentoring, I found my rhythms in Reiki, perhaps my rhapsody.

What is Reiki?  I’ll leave that for you to find out.  Margaret Ann had always said to the students, “Let Reiki be your teacher after you leave this class.”  Reiki is simple, yet it’s who you are.  Reiki is a discovery of your own rhapsody.

Just for now, I will share with you the simplicity of learning Reiki.  This website provides information on Reiki courses and events, Resources, FAQ and Library.  It’s enough for now.  The rest is up to you!

A rhapsody in music is a one-movement work that is episodic yet integrated, free-flowing in structure, featuring a range of highly contrasted moods, colour and tonality. An air of spontaneous inspiration and a sense of improvisation make it freer in form than a set of variations.
