Firstly, it should be noted that Reiki can be learned by anyone. It really is a very simple technique. It is a self-improvement technique, so anybody can do that!!! Though Reiki is *taught* per se, the ability to channel Reiki already exists in each of us – it just is awakened in the student during a Reiki class. The ability is awakened during an “attunement” given by a Reiki master, thus allowing the student to access the endless supply of “life force energy” to channel for the greater good of themselves or others!
One does not need to have the IQ of Albert Einstein, nor be on the same spiritual level as the Dahlia Lama in order to have Reiki available to you. Millions of people of all ages, backgrounds and religions have been taught successfully. If you have a desire to get in touch with yourself, and live a life with less worry and anger, and more gratitude, honesty and compassion... then Reiki is for you!
It is important to realize that Reiki is not a religion, though it is, of course, spiritual in nature. Simply put, it IS a spiritual practice, that brings about great self-improvement. It works, whether the person believes in it or not. It comes from within – everyone has the ability to channel it, we just have to be taught how to remember the process.
If you are ready for a change in your life, if you want to heal, to grow, or learn how to just BE, learn Reiki today.
We teach Reiki in 3 levels – Level I Shoden, Level II Okuden, Level III Shinpiden. All classes are conducted in a small group setting. Private lessons are availabe for each of the levels, at a time that is convenient to your schedule. Additional charges do apply.
Please check our Calendar of Events for current dates for all classes.
Level I Shoden Usui Reiki Class.
Shoden is a Japanese word meaning “first teachings”. The class will focus on a number of different areas, including what is Reiki, the different levels, how the attunement process works, how reiki works, and what it can be used for. We will cover Gassho meditation, Kenyoku, and learn meditation and breathing techniques to do at home, so that you will be comfortable with the energy. By the end of the class, you will be attuned to Level 1 Reiki, and will be able to use the energy to heal both yourself and others. All classes are taught from the Japanese perspective where the initiation process, course information and techniques taught stem directly from Japan. Learn the traditional teachings of Reiki, as it was originally taught in Japan. Experience its beautiful simplicity, and its focus on personal and spiritual healing and growth.
This class meets for 4 weeks. Summer classes operate on a different schedule. Please see the Calendar of Events for upcoming dates.
Level II Okuden Usui Reiki Class
Okeden is a Japanese word meaning ‘inner teachings’. As the word implies, a deeper understanding and connection to Usui Mikao’s teachings is achieved during this course.
Utilizing Japanese principles, this level teaches how to connect to Earth and Heaven energy; the first steps to becoming fully integrated with the universe. This is achieved through the practice of shirushi (symbols) and jumon (mantras). This level will also support you in becoming a professional Reiki practitioner if that is your interest.
Learn the original teachings of Reiki as it was taught in Japan. Experience its beautiful simplicity, and its focus on personal and spiritual healing and growth.
This class meets on a Saturday, from 10AM - 5PM. Level I Reiki is a prerequisite for this class. Please check Calendar of Events for upcoming dates.
Level III Shinpiden Usui Reiki Class.
Shinpiden is the Japanese word for ‘mystery teachings’. It is aimed at Level II practitioners or established Reiki Teachers who wish to continue their personal journey, a journey that is ongoing long after you complete the Shinpiden course. It is therefore not just about teaching, and is even suitable for those who wish to simply develop their personal Reiki practise and occasionally teach those around them.
Self-empowerment is attained in Shinpiden through a strong energetic connection to the source of Reiki. It is also the result of the confidence you will feel as a result of your thorough knowledge of Reiki – how it works, what all the variations on Reiki actually are, where Reiki stands in the world today, the Japanese shirusi (symbols) and jumon (mantras) and their connection to Japanese philosophies and what the origin of Reiki’s spiritual nature is.
One of the major focuses of this course is to tap into the sense that you are, and always were, a great, bright light – this is achieved by working with the fourth shirushi and jumon.
