What is Reiki?

Reiki is a powerful healing technique, that can help to bring about profound physical, emotional, and spiritual changes in a person’s life. Reiki I practitioners learn the basics of Reiki Healing, as well as how to perform self-healing and heal friends/family members and animals. You will learn basics of clearing energy in rooms, food, crystals and other objects. Each Reiki Attunement increases the person’s energy vibration, allowing for more profound healing abilities.

Who can learn Reiki?

-Anyone who wants to practice radical self-care

-Anyone who experiences a lot of stress, anxiety, chronic pain, physical ailments/illness, spiritual blocks, or is around intense/negative energy

-Those who want to help heal animals

What makes this course different than other Reiki Trainings?

*We allow more time to learn the information, practice, and integrate the knowledge and adjust to the new vibration of energy. Many Reiki First Degree courses are taught all at once in one weekend, individually, or in 3 1-hour sessions, leaving minimal time to process the new information, ask questions, or receive guidance and additional feedback. This course is spread out over 8 weeks, and equals a total of 12 hours of training, so that at the end of the training all Reiki I practitioners feel confident in their ability to use Reiki energy to heal themselves and others.

*A strong emphasis is placed on hands-on practice. Students receive hours of experience in class and homework is given to practice between sessions.

*You will receive support in integrating this new vibration of energy. Receiving an attunement can bring up mild physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual shifts, that can at times feel uncomfortable or overwhelming. This is happening because your vibration is increasing, and you are releasing old habits and patterns that no longer resonate with your new vibration. The attunement is given during the 2nd or 3rd class, so that students have support built into the class as they adjust to the new energy.

*Additional support from an experienced healer/private practice provider. Sarah integrates additional skills and knowledge from her years as a psychotherapist, running a private practice, and from her experience as a practicing psychic/medium and Reiki Practitioner/Master.

*Additional Resources for Spiritual Development & Reiki Healing. Sarah emphasizes spiritual growth and Reiki healing as a life-long pursuit, and provides many additional handouts, websites, organizations, and other resources for Reiki 1 students to access along the way. Sarah also provides individual feedback and guidance throughout the training program.

Upon completing this training, you will have been trained in Traditional Usui Reiki First Degree (Reiki I), and receive your Reiki I attunement and certificate as a Traditional Usui First Degree Practitioner. Attendance to each session is required to receive Reiki I certificate.

After completion of this course, you will have a strong foundation in Reiki healing. If you would like to pursue a career in Reiki, or you would like to further your self-healing and personal growth with Reiki, you can continue onto Reiki II, to be held in February and throughout the year!

This event will be hosted by Sarah Buehner, who, in addition to being a Traditional Usui Reiki Master/Teacher is also a practicing psychotherapist and psychic/medium. Sarah pursued her career in Reiki after seeing the profound effects Reiki Healings had in her own life, as well as in the lives of her counseling clients. After learning Reiki, Sarah also experienced how receiving and learning Reiki can lead to profound spiritual growth and strengthen a person’s natural intuition and psychic abilities. Sarah believes that Reiki has a significant role in healing our society in the years to come, and that Reiki will play a significant role in empowering individuals for self-healing, healing others, and contributing to global healing and peace.
