Be prepared to experience energy which is far from "subtle":
This group supports the training and development of practitioners wishing to experience the powerful art forms of Motoki. Although Motoki covers numerous arts, including healing work, intuitive skills, intimacy/connection methods, and martial arts, this group will focus on the non-combative aspects of this training (for safety reasons). This includes healing methods as well as energy-based personal safety.
The healing methods are most beneficial to individuals who specialize in Reiki, bodywork, massage, yoga, or general hands-on healing. The self defense tactics and practices are valuable to everyone.
Introductory events will provide groundwork eventually leading to formalized training if desired (see below). For MotoKi healing methods, additional events will be provided for those who have completed the training, giving them an opportunity to practice their skills. Here you will feel the undeniable effects which take healing work to a whole new level.
We offer this to the young, and not so young, as long as you are 18 or older.
Healing With Earth-Based Energy:
Anyone familiar with the different healing modalities available today has come to know Reiki, literally translated as "Universal Energy." It is believed that everything is made up of energy. The practice of directing ethereal-based (spiritual) energy by using your own energy and intent can result in finding equilibrium and improved health.
Ancient practices in directing energy were more earth-based, and considered power-forms. They were far from subtle, and with the proper direction could affect significant change in others. In combat, the results were significant, and deadly. In the healing arts they were direct and extremely beneficial, assuming their invasive nature was balanced with strong ethics or divine guidance.
Moto-Ki is a more modern form of the ancient practices. The literal translation of "Moto" is "base", "foundation", "the cause", or "origin". Moto-Ki is the art of using a strong connection to ground to bring up powerful earth energy and project it. Originally it was feared to be too powerful. Once it was blended with universal energy practices the added spiritual connection provided a stronger level of safety and ethical behavior.
Achieve Success Much More Quickly:
The experiences of learning Moto-Ki are quite different from those of the softer arts. Ethereal practices are more spiritual to start, and gently approach the practical application over time, eventually providing a physical experience of the result. Earth-based energy flow starts with a very physical connection, immediate and direct. Introduced initially through [non-combative] martial practices, students see the effects as strong, tangible, and undeniable. From there they work "upward", blending it with more universal/spiritual energy.
The process of learning Moto-Ki is also quite different. The ability to ground and then perceive and direct energy is an innate skill. You were born with it. You will not be told how. You will be prompted to remember.
Those who embrace a more scientific view of reality find this to be a more comfortable initiation into the world of energy work. At the same time, experts in ethereal energy forms (Reiki, Qigong, Quantum Touch) find that anchoring their current abilities to earth greatly intensify their effect.
Martial arts masters, especially those who specialize in more brutal/combative forms, find the healing methods quite useful in resolving on-site injuries.

Formalized Training in Healing Methods:
Training sessions will be offered periodically for those wishing certification in Moto-Ki Level 1 or 2. Unlike the practice events, these will be registered training and offered for a fee. For more information regarding content and costs, please contact the facilitator.
Training schedules will be published to this Meetup group as they become available.
