What is Reiki?
Reiki is a powerful healing technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is based on the knowledge that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and keeps us balanced, alive and well.
When we're not feeling well, it can be caused by blockages in our flow of energy that becomes stagnant causing us to feel sick, overly emotional or stressed. Reiki works to clear and balance the energies of the body, bringing about profound physical, emotional, and spiritual changes in a person.
Reiki I practitioners learn the basics of Reiki Healing, as well as how to perform self-healing and the hand positions to help heal others.

What makes this course different than other Reiki Trainings?
Because the course is spread out over multiple weeks, this allows 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 three 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 multiple weeks, and equals a total of 8 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 hands-on experience in class and homework is given to practice between sessions.
You will receive support in integrating this new vibration of energy. The attunement is given during the 1st class (of two week sessions), and the 2nd class (of four week sessions), so that students have support and guidance built into the class as they adjust to the new energy.
We emphasize spiritual growth and Reiki healing as a life-long pursuit, and provide many additional handouts, websites, organizations, and other resources for Reiki students to access along the way. We also provide 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.
Yoga Teachers receive 4 hours of CE Credit through Yoga Alliance.
The fee for this course is $295.
