Jonathan Lobl's Reiki Ministry

My Training and Ordination for Reiki Ministry

Loving Touch Center
Ordained: Minister of Spiritual Healing
By: Samuel Strauss
On: June 22, 1995
LTC Training: Reiki 1, Reiki 2, Advanced Practitioner

As stated on the LTC website

"Loving Touch Center was recognized by the Supreme Court, Board of Education and the Attorney General of the State of New York as an Interfaith Ministry. Our ministry is not religious in nature, but is a spiritual discipline. As such we are able to minister Reiki to our students and clients in hospitals or other institutions. Since we ordain our ministers as Ministers of Spiritual Healing, which is how we perceive the Reiki energy, only our own Loving Touch Center graduates are eligible for our ministry. "

American International Reiki Association, now known as TRTIA
The head of this lineage, Barbara W. Ray, Ph.D.; was the last of the 22 Reiki Masters trained by Hawayo Takata.
The instructors of the Barbara Ray lineage, continue to insist that only they have the complete reiki system taught by Hawayo Takata.  There was a time when I believed this.
Note:  This reiki lineage is a seven degree system.  The other reiki lineages are three degree systems.  I do not know the content or source of the additional material.
