About the event

The Karuna Reiki system, developed and trademarked by William Rand of the International Center for Reiki Training, is defined in Sanskrit as the Reiki of Compassionate Action accompanied by Wisdom.

William’s story of creating this system started about 1989.Through his own multifaceted, trainings, and networking with other Reiki Master‘s, he was given new symbols and attunements to work with which he filed away until he and a few other Masters felt confident enough to bring them forth and share them publicly. The symbols that were ultimately chosen were channeled by several Reiki masters including Marcy Miller, Kellie-Ray Marine, Pat Courtney, Catherine Mills Belmont and Marla Abraham.

In 1995 William taught his first Karuna Reiki course that our own John Sparks attended. In 2016 Valerie learned this system from John and they both have been using it in their personal practice since.

While this system of Reiki is trademarked by William Rand, there is additional perspectives and insights that John became aware of through his good friend and then business partner, Sue Ellen Roberts. As an angelic channel, Sue Ellen offered an in-depth understanding and fresh perspective around the Karuna system that resonated strongly with John. This brought excitement and new life to his approach in using Karuna Reiki, but because of an agreement between them, when Sue Ellen parted, this knowledge remained locked away and nurtured until now, almost 25 years later.

When you attend this course you will learn both perspectives-Williams trademarked version as well as the angels as channeled through Sue Ellen, the hidden stories, and a deep loving, compassionately new system of Reiki to add to your tool box of love and light to share with the world.
