Connecting with the Flow of Chi

April 15 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Join me for this Special Opportunity to spend the day “in the flow” with Junji Kanai, a shiatsu massage therapist for more than 30 years. I have asked him to teach us more about following and understanding ‘chi’ in the body.

Junji Kanai initially studied philosophy and theology and then worked as a Mennonite pastor for years before following his path to becoming a healer. In 1978, he decided to become a Shiatsu Therapist after hearing these words from a man he had helped – “Junji, you should be a therapist , you have a gift of healing”. Junji studied massage and Shiatsu in both Canada and Japan. His Shiatsu techniques and philosophy are heavily influenced by the late Shiatsu Master Shizuto Masunaga, and Junji has since developed and refined his own method. Now in his 70s, Junji still works from his knees and his ‘bed’ is a futon on the floor.

Junji will speak to his understanding that we human beings have our own innate healing energy, and as long as this energy flows within the body with ease we are healthy. When this healing energy flow becomes dis-ease, then we call this condition ‘disease’. Junji will share his techniques and philosophy with us, teaching us how to make the healing energy flow with ease from dis-ease. The day includes lots of opportunity for questions and conversation. Junji promises “to answer you as much as I know.”

I am opening this opportunity up first to Reiki students  – after March 15th, any available spots will be offered to other interested persons who have not studied Reiki. Please note that you will not be a shiatsu therapist at the end of the day. Rather, our intent is to learn from someone who may provide insights into supporting how we experience ‘ki as a single flow’ in people and deepening our channelling of Reiki.
