 What is Reiki

Reiki is a Sanskrit word which means cosmic energy (Rei – cosmos and Ki – energy). Usui/Tibetan Reiki is a simple technique to learn.  It is passed from a Reiki Master, called Teacher to a Student with a series of attunements. Reiki person is using the Universal Life Force Energy to promote the body internal healing system and to develop spiritually. Once a person is initiated in Reiki it is for lifetime.

The first degree opens the energy channel and permits the student to channel Reiki mainly at the physical level, both for himself and for others. It consists of one initiation in the Usui Tibetan system. After the initiation, the student may note a subtle energy flowing through his hands. This can be perceived in various ways, including heat, coolness, tickling, buzzing, or just a strange feeling in the hands. Sometimes it takes a period of time after the initiation before the student feels the energy. This level is open to anyone. No previous experience or preparation is required. It is usually taught in one weekend. The initiation connects the student’s energy system to the Universal Energy. Energy blockages are released, balancing and harmonising the major energy centres known as chakras. The initiation opens the central energy channel leading from the crown of the head to the bottom of the spine. It connects the student to the Universal Energy permanently, allowing him to channel the energy whenever he wishes. At first, the amount of energy channelled after the initiation can vary considerably, but the more the student uses Reiki, the more constant the energy becomes. In this level, the energy is 80-90% on the physical level. The remainder being on the mental/emotional and spiritual levels.The second level opens the energy channel and permits the student to channel Reiki mainly at the physical level, both for himself and for others. It consists of one initiation in the Usui Tibetan system. After the initiation, the student may note a subtle energy flowing through his hands. This can be perceived in various ways, including heat, coolness, tickling, buzzing, or just a strange feeling in the hands. Sometimes it takes a period of time after the initiation before the student feels the energy. With Level 1 & 2 you will be able to heal yourself and others.

Moti Nativ, a retired Colonel from the Israeli Defense Force, is a certified Feldenkrais practitioner and a Shihan in the Bujinkan school of Budo Taijutsu. He holds a black belt in Judo and is a certified Krav Maga instructor. He served four years as the president of the Israeli Feldenkrais Guild.

Come and Experience Easy, Effortless and Flowing Movement – The Paradox of Flowing and Weight

As Dr. Feldenkrais wrote in Higher Judo, “We aim to further adult individual independence from gravitation”. In this weekend workshop we will look towards improving this independence from the pull of gravity.

Moti has developed new ATM lessons and concepts, going through the stages of development, from the baby’s basic position lying on the floor, to adult erect posture and movement in daily activity in a changing environment.

Testimonials from last year’s workshop:

“Improved stability, turning more easily – seeing the world in a new way.”

“I’m a Feldenkrais practitioner and this was such a treat to attend a workshop where all I had to do was pay attention to my own movements – I felt so fluid and alive afterwards.”

“I feel like I could dance for hours after this!”

“It was all I had hoped for and more – Moti is a wonderful teacher. I am walking more easily, and I enjoyed the exciting lessons. I would absolutely come again!”

” I have been taken aback by Moti’s ability to teach ATM lessons that are “beginner lessons” In such a profound way that I am having a completely novel experience.”

“I was very touched by Moti speaking about how he works with seniors, and he makes it clear that there is an entire range of usefulness to everyone in all of these movements.”

“Moti’s teaching style is how I imagine Moshe Feldenkrais’ teaching style was like!”

“It’s been really great – I love how he brought in the martial arts and explained it so clearly. I love Moti!”

We will explore more of Moshe’s genius work, discovering and using our real potential and power to move effortlessly and without strain.

Although it will be a challenging weekend, everyone, no matter his/her age or body condition, will safely experience and learn new movements and situations, and gradually improve their Stability, Balance and Orientation. Learn more efficient and effortless action in everyday situations.

You will come away feeling more stable, balanced and powerful, without engaging unnecessary muscular activity.

This is part of the Synergy Project  – the Synergy of Martial Arts and the Feldenkrais Method®.

Moti Nativ, a martial artist and Feldenkrais practitioner, has taught at a center for the Elderly in Tel Aviv, working with students whose age averages 80. He also teaches at the Wingate Academy of Sport in Tel Aviv, educating movement instructors to work with clients in the “Golden Age”. His work is based on his Warrior’s Awareness approach, developed through 25 years of teaching Awareness Through Movement®.
