A RESPONSE TO RICK WARREN’S January 15th HEALTH AND WELLNESS PLAN
by Caryl Matrisciana
REIKI & YOGA MEDITATION:
Can they be Christianized? Should a Christian be involved?
I was recently interviewed by radio talk show host, Jan Markell for her Olive Tree Ministries on which we discussed Rick Warren’s Health and Wellness plan designed by his three New Age doctor/advisors who practise Hinduism, Buddhism and Japanese Reiki Healing. Warren’s too supported the technique of eastern meditation promoting it as though meditation and prayer are one and the same and interchangeable. Such is the acceptance within an eastern worldview but the confusion arises because Warren’s primary audience are Christians who understand the concepts of “prayer” and “meditation” within a Biblical worldview. My radio interviews have brought us an encouraging response but needless to say there is great concern and rightly so.
