What about Reiki?


#1

Hello everyone I am new here but I believe this is the place to ask about something that I was so much know how the Catholics feel. Does anyone here know about Reiki? How do you feel about it? and how does the Catholic church feel about Reiki?
:confused:

Reiki is not an appropriate practice for Christians. It does involve an attempt to manipulate a supernatural or psychic force and therefore is ruled out.

I highly recommend Clare McGrath Merkle’s article
[Reiki and Tantric Magic; Healing or Hell?](“http://www.catholicculture.org/docs/doc_view.cfm?recnum=2929”) and the Church’s document on the New Age
Jesus Christ The Bearer of the Water of Life A Christian reflection on the “New Age”

I also recommend the book Catholics and the New Age by Fr. Mitchell Pacwa.
