Reiki Classes


Reiki classes create great opportunities to grow, heal and transform our lives; as such they are not just about learning new skills but also about empowering ourselves to bring change. My intention is to meet and support students wherever they are in their life. Training can be taken as a group or individually, with or without certification. Follow-up class reviews, coaching and mentoring is offered to students as needed. 

Reiki Training

Many systems and branches of Reiki have emerged since the practice was developed in Japan in the early 1900s, blending with the varying cultural beliefs and traditions across the world. Over the years, I have explored a few before choosing to teach the traditional approach as a foundation to any Reiki practice. There are two options:
OPTION 1: USUI REIKI RYOHO - certification training
Usui Reiki Ryoho is the name of the traditional art of Reiki. It follows the way the practice was originally understood in Japan, as a spiritual healing practice and path to wholeness. This system was brought by Frans Stiene and Bronwen Logan, Reiki Teachers and founders of the International House of Reiki. It is based on years of comprehensive research, studies and practice in Japan and consistent with what was practiced at the time of Mikao Usui, the founder. It provides students with a solid foundation and tools they can use to create a more balanced and meaningful life. These include meditation, breath-work, hands-on healing, techniques and exercises, and more. 
OPTION 2: REIKI EXPLORATION - individualized non-certification training 
This is an introductory Reiki class designed to allow participants to explore and learn basic healing tools for life according to their needs and interests. Examples of classes according to interests:
- Reiki for Self-Care
- Reiki for Healthcare
- Reiki for the Special Needs Parent or Caregiver
- Reiki Magic for Kids
- Reiki, An Introduction 
This class is individualized but can be taken in combination with the Usui Reiki Ryoho certification program.
This is a 2 to 4 hour-class - $120
- Usui/Holy Fire® III Reiki Master Teacher - 3-day class - $580
- Holy Fire III Karuna Reiki® Master Teacher - 3-day class - $580
This is a Western system of Reiki developed by the International Center for Reiki Training (ICRT). For more information about Holy Fire Reiki, please read this article from William Rand, the founder HERE 
Starting January 2019, 25% of the class revenue will be donated to Have Dreams , an organization that supports individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to realize their full potential and develop into contributing members of their communities. 

My Reiki Lineage and Trainings

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 art of Reiki, called "Usui Reiki Ryoho" with Frans Stiene, Reiki Teacher and co-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.
