Reiki Proficiency Courses [Certification Classes - Traditional Japanese (Usui)]

Reiki - correctly called The Usui System of Natural Healing - is an ancient energy-based healing system founded by Mikao Usui in the early 1900s. Usui's system of healing originally began as a spiritual practice, attached to no specific religion or dogma, into which Usui later incorporated palm-healing. It is the fastest growing energy therapy in the world, with the numbers of people seeking a qualified certified practitioner increasing daily.

The Usui System of Natural Healing can be safely and effectively used with any and all health care modalities, and does not interfere with traditional health care treatments. It is offered in major hospitals around the world, with doctors and nurses earning CEUs (continuing education units) for learning the practice.

Reiki can be learned and applied by anyone. Upon completion of Usui Reiki level 1, the student is capable of treating himself and others, including pets and animals. At all levels, the commitment and focus is first on self-healing.

Why should I take a live training when there are so many distant trainings available?

With my live training you get ...

  • up to six months of training per level
  • a solid working foundation and knowledge of the system
  • personal real-time attention
  • extensive hands-on experience and practice
  • a complete and thorough visual of the techniques in action
  • the Blessings at every class meeting
    • as Usui meant them to be (rather than the Westernized offshoots known as "attunements" or "initiations")
  • immediate feedback
  • to share stories and experiences
  • to connect heart-fully with your instructor and classmates

Many of my students are those who have been dissatisfied with or sensed something lacking in previous Reiki instruction, or come out of them not really understanding anything at all, or who are simply seeking training with more substance.

What type of Reiki classes are offered?

In Usui's time, students committed themselves for several years to learning Usui's spiritual growth and healing methods. A student proceeded to the next 'level' only when he was unquestioningly ready, and it was the teacher who determined when a student was ready. Usui would give a student one method, one practice, one technique at a time which the student had to perfect before receiving the next step or method. In this way of teaching, students invested considerable time at any given level.

Learning Reiki today is quite different. Today there are one-day classes for an entire level - often lasting as little as four hours - and even classes in which students learn Levels 1 and 2 in a single weekend. Usui's outstanding system has been microwaved into nearly unrecognizable condition.

In order to provide you with a more solid working foundation and knowledge of the system, when you train with me, you will learn each level of the Usui System of Natural Healing (reiki) over the course of a few months. You are taken deep into Usui's more traditional teachings and techniques. You receive extensive hands-on practice and are required to complete daily self-treatments and other practices - both on yourself and with others - between each class meeting.

In addition, you are able to contact me, your Usui Reiki instructor, for questions and assistance between classes as well as after completing your training.

These classes are best for the serious student who seeks a training with more substance, and for those who aspire to become professional practitioners, whether for himself, his family, or his entire community.

What is the financial investment for training?

Hawayo Takata, who brought Usui's system to the United States invested $10,000 for the master level training alone. That would be around $100,000 today, for just that one level.

You will find your investment to be considerably less. [Be sure to review the special pricing opportunities for each level below.]

When there are financial concerns, the advantages of a one-time investment in learning to practice reiki self-care verses paying for repeated sessions are obvious, especially when more than one member trains. Costs of receiving treatment are significantly reduced when you self-treat and / or when family members treat one another.

A Rapid-Learning Option - i.e., shorter version - is available only for Level 1 and includes the basics as previously taught by this establishment/practitioner. This is a limited teaching lasting approximately 7 hours over the course of two days and will provide you with enough knowledge for general self- and family-care. Includes two Blessings.

This Rapid-Learning Option does not include certificate of completion, textbooks, or a manual.

These will occasionally be offered as a group training.
