Course Description

Reiki is an Eastern healing philosophy, combined with basic universal spiritual principles, which ultimately serves its practitioners very well. It is a practice which honors the holistic needs of the body and spirit and integrates healing principles to ultimately enrich the entire being.

 

In this course, you will learn the basics of Reiki, as it is generally taught and practiced by Reiki Masters, and you will have a foundational understanding necessary for self administering its healing principles. We will touch on the history of Reiki as well as its different Eastern and Western branches, principles that govern the practice of Reiki, and both the basic and more complex philosophies concerning the body's energy and how it impacts the healing process.

 

At the end of the course, your understanding of Reiki principles and practices should be comprehensive and you should be ready to regularly implement the lessons. Through daily or weekly practice and regular meditation, you will prepare yourself to share your new knowledge and you will be ready to help heal others.
 
A distance attunement will be given.
