Absolutely Compatible: Meditation and Traditional Religion

When I speak of meditation, and, more specifically invite people to join in a practice with which they are unfamiliar, the more traditional and fundamentalist people stiffen with fear.  Many of them have been taught that these techniques are “Asian” and  “anti-Christian,” techniques that unscrupulous New Age people use to lure them away from their religion.  Such misperception makes the rest of us shake our heads.  The reality is that for those raised in Western…

Reiki: An Excommunicatable Practice

Did you know that the practice of reiki was an excommunicatable practice? I recently read a book called 50 Things Every Christian Should Know About Reiki. It is a sincere attempt to explain reiki and prove why it is evil and satanic by a Catholic priest. I was surprised that the church had taken a stand on reiki - it never occured to me that it was a dangerous practice in the eyes of a loving Divine God. Of course, it isn't dangerous to God.
