This is a certification series for the introductory and second levels of Reiki, a Japanese traditional technique for reducing stress, releasing old patterns of "dis-ease," and promoting healing. Reiki is based on the concept that each of us is a part of a “universal life-force energy.” If our energy is too low or too high, we are more likely to get sick and feel stress; if more balanced and clear, we are more likely to feel healthy and happy. “Reiki” is derived from two Japanese words, “Rei” meaning “God or Universal Wisdom” and “Ki” meaning “life energy.” Together, Reiki is a process of intentionally focusing or allowing energy to be sent or guided to all levels of one’s life, body, mind, soul, and spirit, done for one’s highest sense of good and well-being.
Reiki Q? In addition to covering concepts of traditional Usui Reiki, this certification series offers a "twist"! We will be weaving an introduction to Quantum Integrative Energetics Therapy into our experience as a way to connect with our higher healing Self more easily. The 10 QuIET Principles offer a very useful structure for entering a more meditative, relaxed healing space and perspective for working with others as well as on ourselves.
Reiki I provides an overview and basic history of Reiki, as well as initial attunements to one’s “universal energy.” Ethics of touch and use of Reiki with other modalities also are included. Participants learn basic techniques and hand positions which can be used in their work with others as well as with self-treatments. Completion of Reiki I certification is a prerequisite for Level II certification.
Reiki II adds to concepts introduced in Reiki I, including “distance” or non-local healing and more advanced techniques for sending Reiki energy, as well as additional attunement to one’s “universal energy.” Participants learn Reiki symbols and techniques and how these are used with clients. Developing one’s own practice, integrating Reiki into other healing modalities, and discovering one’s own healing gifts at deeper levels also are included in the focus of this class. Completion of Reiki II certification is a prerequisite for Level III/Master Practitioner certification.
