About The Event

"Deepening Your Practice" is designed for students previously initiated to Reiki First Degree as well as for those who may already be Second or Third Degree practitioners. Over recent years more data has become available regarding the history and application of Reiki, which is important groundwork for those desiring to be Reiki practitioners. Even practitioners who have been using Reiki with clients for some time can have vague ideas of what Reiki is and are therefore unsure of how to communicate the benefits and effects of this energy-based modality. Reiki's history can be elusive, especially when combined with other modalities and the traditional Reiki teachings can be overshadowed or forgotton. The intent of this course is to (re)-introduce Reiki to the practicing massage therapist as a powerful healing modality and  philosophical system that is both simple and accessible.

This class will address questions of "authenticity" of Reiki practices and review concepts that are necessary for a clear and simple application of this energy-based healing. Additionally, students will learn and have ample opportunity to practice previously unknown Reiki techniques of Dr. Mikao Usui.  Our 3-session workshop begins with community building, setting of intentions and sharing of Reiki with one another. Together we will review Reiki's history in the US, followed by initiation to Second Degree Reiki in the Usui tradition. Students learn the concept of "Distance Reiki" and the significance of the symbols of this level will be shared. The Reiki Principles will be reviewed as well as discussion of the variety of schools of Reiki. Through the course, additional tools for sensing and clearing the more subtle levels of energy will be introduced and practiced. Ultimately, we will focus on applying concepts directly with clients, from a distance and in large group settings.

As a prerequisite attendees will be asked to schedule a brief interview with the instructor to confirm completion of 12-24 hours of Reiki sessions.

Massage tables will be provided by the school.
