Energy Healing for Well-Being and Life Transformation - Chicago NorthShore, IL



Many systems of Reiki have emerged since the practice was developed in Japan in the early 1900's. Over the years, I have explored and practiced a few of them before choosing to tea ch 3 approaches: a traditional Japanese, contemporary Western one and one individualized designed for healthcare users and professionals as well as those who simply seek an introduction to the practice of Reiki. 

Classes can be taken as a group or individually according to needs.

Which program?

Usui Reiki Ryoho (traditional Japanese style) is the program developed by Frans Stiene and Bronwen Logan, Reiki Teachers and founders of the International House of Reiki. It is a thorough program based on years of research, studies and practice in Japan. This program gives students a solid foundation of the way the Usui system of Reiki was traditionally understood and practiced in Japan, as a path to wholeness. This approach focuses on self-healing, inner-work and personal development. 

Holy Fire Reiki (contemporary Western style) is a new form of Reiki developed in the West by William Rand Reiki Master Teacher and President of ICRT in 2014. It is a unique system that carries a specific spiritual energy (Holy Fire). This system evolved from the Usui/Tibetan system of Reiki, also created by William Rand, to adapt to our Western mind and time, as we enter a new phase of global transformation. It is offered to those who are called to receive it. For more information about Holy Fire Reiki please visit my page "Reiki Evolving" and/or feel free to contact me. 

Reiki for Self-Care and Healthcare: individualized Reiki training.

Please note that regardless the system one chooses, Reiki comes from a place of oneness so any of these classes will offer students great opportunities to heal, grow and transform their life. Practice is what creates the "magic" so the key is to choose the program that best resonates with you in your life. I am happy to guide you in your decision and answer any questions you might have.


Which level?

Reiki 1 is the beginning of your journey of exploration and self-discovery through the practice of meditation, reflection with the Reiki Precepts and hands-on healing for yourself and others. No prerequisite. 

Reiki 2 leads students to consolidate foundational concepts from their Reiki 1 class, learn and internalize additional tools and techniques allowing them to go deeper to practice Reiki remotely, beyond time and space. Reiki level 1 is required for this class. 

Reiki 3 provides students with advanced techniques for healing and personal development. It also allows students to learn how to lead initiations and to teach if they choose to do so. The aim of the mastership is to go deeper into your personal experience and practice of Reiki. Reiki 3 is a powerful class that heals deeply. It empowers and guides us to connect with and embody our inner-light to "be Reiki" in the world. A minimum of 6 months period after Reiki 2 is recommended to take the mastership level. 

Karuna Reiki® leads Reiki Masters to learn additional tools to move further into their life. Karuna means "compassion in action", toward ourselves and others. The additional symbols and experiences offered in this class aim at bringing deeper levels of healing and empowerment to increase our light and expand it further within ourselves and into the world. A minimum of 6 months period to a year is recommended after Reiiki 3 to take the Karuna level. 


Reiki Lineage

My lineage includes both the Japanese (Usui Reiki Ryoho) and Western (Usui/Tibetan and Usui/Holy Fire Reiki) lineages, and so it will be for my students. 

I completed all my levels of training in the Usui/Tibetan system of Reiki and Usui/Holy Fire Reiki with William Rand, Reiki Master and President of the International Center for Reiki Training (ICRT). I took my first Karuna Reiki® Master training and Reiki Crystal Healing certification with Laurelle Shanti Gaia and Michael Baird, ICRT Licensed Reiki Master Teachers. I also studied with Colleen Benelli, another ICRT Licensed Reiki Master Teacher during the Holy Fire II Reiki retreat in Hawaii in 2016. 

I was fortunate to receive the initiation to Usui Teate in 2014 (Chris Marsh lineage) from Pascal Wallyn, Reiki Master Teacher and Usui/Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® Representative in France. This led me to discover the Kototama principle and use of sacred sounds that are now part of my personal practice and field of study. 

I am currently training in the practice of the traditional Japanese system of Reiki, called "Usui Reiki Ryoho" with Frans Stiene, Reiki Teacher and founder of the International House of Reiki, to deepen my experience and understanding of Reiki from a more traditional perspective.

I completed my Reiki training in Japan in 2018 with Frank Arjava Petter and Tadao Yamaguchi, Reiki Teachers and founders of Jikiden Reiki (Kyoto). 

Finally, I wish to express my deep gratitude to all my Reiki teachers which includes Ramaa Krishnan, founder of Full Bloomed Lotus Center for Self-Awareness, with whom I studied for many years and who was my first Reiki Teacher.
