I have been discussing this over the last few days with a friend who is a Franciscan novice. He knows all about the false accusations against me and we have actually been able to talk about these things openly between ourselves. I think I saw mentioned here that someone drew a connection between BDSM and Reiki. Could you please elaborate on this so I can better explain to my friend?

    There is no connection between BDSM and Reiki. However, there are some people who may choose to use Reiki after scenes for all I know. Reiki is an ancient energy healing technique brought over from Asian cultures. It has NO connection to bdsm practices whatsoever in its philosophy and practice.

      Ok, I think someone may have mentioned that to me outside this tribe then, the person who recommended it for me. I did not think there was a connection inherent, but perhaps that others had drawn a connection as well. Thank you for the clarification.

    A highly skilled top may use energy in a ways that could be likened to Reiki by some one who is not sure what is going on. If someone saw me doing a very sensual violet wand scene, it could easily pass for some kind of "new age" healing session. But there is no formal connections I am aware of.

    I have played with a bottom that is a Reiki pracitioner. I know his Reiki skills have helped his vanilla relationships.

    My play friends and lovers enjoy Reiki after hard play. I use the names ReikiTop and SadistichealilngGoddess for a reason. Are there folks not agreeing with this? Great topic! Glad I stumbled upon it.

    There is a connection! Not in training, or how one remembers being a Reiki Master or how when one is trained as a Giver or Receiver of B.D.S/M energy...but rather in the idea that Reiki is everywhere. We are Reiki, we are swimming in it. Part of being a Reiki Master is experiencing the inherent connection between everyone and all living things)...it is a realization, it cannot be taught, it is experienced... (In my experience and training as a Reiki Master in Usui Reiki Ryoho).

    When you are attuned to Reiki, it just flows, in the scene and out of the scene. No one actually knows how it works (including the founder Mikao Usui) , except that your line of initiation must link back to Usui. Here are a couple of links discussing the origins of Reiki.

    I use it primarly as an aftercare tool both with my professional Dom practice and in my private Ritual B.D.S/M practices...especially with catharsis work.

      As with Kundalini energy, Reiki energy is with the Master all the time. I personally use Reiki as aftercare, but do use a bit of energy work and exchange during BDSM scenes which is a bit different.
