Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that allows everyone to tap into an unlimited supply of 'life force energy' to improve health and enjoy a good quality of life. An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but it is transferred to the student by a Reiki Master.
Its use is not dependent on one's intellectual capacity or spiritual awareness or belief and, therefore, is available to everyone. It has been successfully transferred to millions of people of all ages and cultural backgrounds.
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through you and surrounds you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind, and soul and creates many beneficial effects including relaxation and feelings of peace, security, and well-being. Many have reported miraculous results. Reiki is a simple, natural, and safe method of spiritual knowing and self-improvement that everyone can use.
There are four levels of Reiki training and this program offers you a comprehensive understanding of the theory and practice of Reiki, going from the introductory level one to becoming a Reiki master. Each day builds onto the next to develop your awareness and embrace the many practical application ways to bring Reiki into your life and the lives of others. Learn to attune others, teach, and give Reiki treatments.
While many people have had some previous Reiki, the formal approach to teaching this expansive subject makes revisiting the early levels important to assure you will leave feeling confident and empowered.
Reiki is the foundation program that explains what Reiki is and how it can be applied to enhance and support personal health. The session begins with an introduction to the energetic body and the healing potential of Reiki. You will look at the role of intention and purpose in thoughts and karmic disposition. Next, you will explore the history of Reiki and the founders.
You will learn the five precepts of Reiki and traditional Reiki meditation. A series of energy exercises help you to feel and understand energy better. Students will be attuned to level one Reiki.
After the attunement, you will progress through a series of Reiki exercises to practice, beginning with the Reiki Bear Project (injecting teddy bears with Reiki healing and light - the bears are later donated to children's hospitals and disadvantaged youth programs as a Karmic project reminding us of our role as healers and symbolizing how we must all share our light where it is needed).
You will move up to energy exchanges with plants and discuss Reiki for animals, and then you will progress to self-healing practices, touching lightly upon traditional Reiki share activity. The program covers Usui Reiki systems, reviewing both defined hand positions and the intuitive method.
This segment carries the foundation course (level one) on to learn about sharing Reiki with others. This level prepares students to do Reiki treatments on people, places, animals, and situations. The course covers distance Reiki, how to send Reiki through time and space, and reviews many techniques for sending Reiki to those who are not physically accessible.
Reiki two covers crystal healing and dowsing with pendulums. Students select a pendulum to keep and will practice with it in the course and they are given other items to take home to serve as totems or aids to a full Reiki practice. The laying on of crystals to enhance Reiki energy and chakra clearing is covered.
Students receive level two attunement and learn and practice the symbols attached to this level. Participants leave prepared to work as a Reiki practitioner.
The master levels of Reiki is offered on day two (a full day from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.). The first portion of the training is devoted to refining your Reiki techniques and studying new healing modalities, and the portion focuses on how to teach Reiki to others and attune students to all levels of Reiki. After completing level three B training, a student is considered a Reiki Master, fully prepared to build a Reiki community of their own and to pass on the wisdom through classes they sponsor.
Students are welcome to take level three A to be a Reiki Master practitioner, but need three B if they ever choose to attune others and complete the full Reiki education process.
In this portion of the course, you will do a review of Reiki basics and techniques and the principals and symbols. You will then be introduced to three more symbols and receive the Reiki Master attunement. A series of exercises offers many life situations where Reiki can be applied, to refine your skill set and expand your awareness of choices where Reiki can be of service to others.
Sound and vibrational healing, as well as crystal grids, are reviewed and students are invited to work with crystals and tuning forks to experiment with chakra clearing and aura smoothing along with their Reiki practice.
Students in this level receive a silk scarf as their Reiki attunement totem, and they participate in a Reiki craft project to create Reiki stones that they will take home to serve as meditation inspiration, as well as a tool to learn the correct symbols for attunements and other reiki practice.
