Reiki Training

Once you decide to embark on Reiki training, I can assure you, you will not regreat that adventure. And an adventure it will be - an awesome adventure!

With the struggle and strife in lives personally, professionally, emotionally and even as one searches for more answers spiritually, Reiki is a simple but profound tool to assist you in finding peace and balance in all those areas.


Through the channeling of energy through your body you will experience physical and emotional calmness. You will experience what many who have embarked on their Reiki journey describe as kind of hard to describe but a feeling so relaxed and just completely different. You will become reacquainted with the awareness you were born with yet lost somewhere along your life's travels, an awareness that is the essence of WHAT Reiki is, who YOU are and the endless capabilities you have to assist yourself on your path of good health and well-being.

Sound too good to be true? Maybe a bit over the top? A little hard to wrap your analytically programmed mind to wrap itself around?

Completely understood.

But the fact of the matter is, Reiki is all that (and more) and does all that (and more). Yet "reading" about just won't get you there, won't bring you the understanding you're hoping for, won't bring you the result you're hoping for. Only by experiencing Reiki through a Reiki treatment or Reiki training will you truly be blessed with the totality of possibilities this healing art possesses.

The technical aspect of Reiki training is not at all difficult. There's no educational or collegiate prerequisite required to begin. You don't have to be in the healing arts, a guru, or you know, "one of those weird people". It's not a difficult course of study, not lengthy and not tremendously expensive. In fact, it's probably the best gift you could give yourself, your health, your complete well-being. And a gift you can share with friends and family to help them as well. It doesn't run out, doesn't expire and doesn't need to be upgraded.

Reiki is with you always and can be administered anytime, anywhere to anyone.

So what exactly does Reiki training consist of? There are three levels to the study of Reiki. In the West these levels are referred to as Reiki I, Reiki II and Reiki III (or Master Level). In the East, as Reiki is a Japanese healing art, the levels of training are called Shoden (Reiki Level I), Okuden (Reiki Level II) and Shinpiden (Reiki III).

Reiki training consists of:

  • Registering for a Reiki class
  • Attending what is most often two full days of in person study
  • Learning what Reiki is, where it came from, how to 'perform' it and how to 'tap into' it
  • Receiving course materials and a certificate of training completion
  • An invitation (and sometimes a requirement) for post training follow-up

Believe it or not, that's it. That's all that's required of you to "learn" about Reiki and tap into this magnificent source of healing which you've always had yet forgot you possessed and forgot how to use. 

During Reiki Level I (Shoden) you will learn:

  • what Reiki is
  • where it originated from
  • about the body's energy system(s)
  • how to sense (feel) energy in the body
  • the five elements of a successful Reiki journey
  • how to use Reiki to assist healing yourself and others

During Reiki Level II (Okuden) you will learn:

  • review of Reiki Level I
  • symbols and mantras - their meaning and use
  • how to perform a remote (or distant) Reiki treatment
  • a deeper understanding and connection to Reiki and Usui's teachings
  • how to help others as a professional Reiki practitioner

During Reiki Level III / Master Training (Shinpiden) you will learn:

  • review of Reiki Levels I and II
  • tools to continue on your own spiritual path
  • how to practice and perform atunements (initiations/blessings)
  • personal and professional responsibility and ethics of becoming a teacher

Reiki training is truly a wonderful gift to yourself. It is a tool you will always have at your disposal to assist you on your journey of living, healing and good health and to help others on their journeys as well.
