Holy Fire III
“Karuna is a Sanskrit word and is used in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Zen. It is translated to indicate any action that is taken to diminish the suffering of others and, more specifically, means ‘compassionate action.’” – William Lee Rand
William Lee Rand of the International Center of Reiki Training is the lineage holder of Holy Fire III Karuna Reiki®. He is a prolific teacher and author of the subject and has been a student of multiple different Reiki Masters both here in the United States and in Japan. Throughout his many years of practicing Reiki, he saw that there was a more refined way of using ki energy. Master Rand was also encountering other symbols of power that were given to him by his many teachers and fellow practitioners. In 1995, he gathered his most trusted students to experiment with these symbols. Through their experiments, they met a new type of Reiki with greater compassion and a focus on trauma healing that works on the cellular and quantum levels. This allows the energy to work on a person’s genetic makeup and work on a person’s energy in past lives, future lives, or other realities beyond our current ones. This practice became known as Karuna Reiki ®. Due to the intensity of Karuna Reiki ®, only Master level Reiki practitioners may be trained in Karuna Reiki ®.
It should also be understood that Karuna Reiki ® should not be considered as a replacement for any other types of Reiki. It is a further study of Reiki energy and how best to use it for more significant healing. One should either have a healing session or take a class to form their own opinions of Karuna Reiki ®.
Lastly, as Holy Fire Reiki ® was introduced into the world in 2014 by William Lee Rand as well, Karuna Reiki ® has been upgraded by Master Rand to what is now known as Holy Fire III Karuna Reiki ®. Whoever takes this course will benefit from having Holy Fire III Reiki ® incorporated into their system when taking this class.
