Reiki

Reiki means “spiritual energy.” This is a Japanese technique that promotes healing and stress reduction by “laying on hands.” It is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

Reiki is taught through a process of attunement, ritually passed on from teacher to student. During the attunement, the body’s energy channels are cleared of obstructions and opened wide to the source of universal Ki (Chi). The result is a lifelong amplification and profound deepening of the practitioner’s innate healing capabilities. Reiki combines well with other techniques or can be used alone.




First 
Degree Reiki
The First Degree Reiki Course, “Shoden” in Japanese, teaches the basic theories and procedures of healing. You will receive attunements in order to remove inner obstacles, and promote alignment. This process is an exceptional boost to the student spiritual power and healing abilities as well as a way to develop better boundaries and psychic protection.

You will learn the traditional hand positions on the recipient's body that are most conducive to healing in a full body session. The class includes the study of symbolism, philosophy, the chakra system, meditation and wonderful hands on practices. You will receive a handbook to facilitate your learning process.

Having completed the First Degree Course, you will be ready to treat yourself and others with Reiki.

Second Degree Reiki

In the Second Degree Reiki Course, given the Japanese name of “Okuden,” you will learn three symbols that enhance the strength and distance over which Reiki can be exerted. You will know how to practice “distant healing,” so you can help people in need without being physically present with the recipient. You will receive two attunements, which will help you to increase your capacity for Reiki to flow through you.

A manual is given to you to help you memorize the symbols and their use and other complementary techniques.

Distant Healing

This class is built to give you a unique opportunity to deepen the understanding and practice of the third symbol, which is used for distant healing. You will learn to create a temporary connection between you and a recipient, regardless of location and time, and then to send the Reiki energy for healing.
