Reiki Classes & other workshops

The multiple empowerments (attunements) given as per Japanese tradition are only the beginning.  Japanese exercises, techniques and meditations in each level require at least 12 hours, which I break down into three 4-hour classes, Several  students have said, “Time flies in your classes“.  See details on my Learning Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki kai page   or <click here for brief descriptions>  A detailed manual for each level, which is a combination my Shihans’ manuals and notes I took in their classes, are included; the certificates reflect those of my Shihans.


One student after completing Shoden level wrote –“This was an amazing experience.  There is no judgements and I felt right at home.  Thank you so much! I will definitely be back.” Jessica


 My monthly Usui Reiki Koryukai and monthly newsletter are two of the ways I offer continued support; any student whose Email has changed I ask to simply contact me so that he or she will continue to receive the newsletters..

The benefits with each progressing level are more rapid and lasting with much left effort as you by-pass the need for training wheels.

 September’s Koryukai (gathering) is Sunday September 22; 12;30 -2:30 PM   This is more than a time to step back away from the wows of the world, practice Byosen Reiki-ho, receive the Japanese technique from me to keep your pathway clean and strong, and experience being the receiver in Shudan Reiki-ho.  You are among people who think as you do about the wonderment of an actual piece of universal energy, and enjoy the method Usui Sensei created to pave the way to satori.  In the opening Mawashi you can feel the oneness as talked about in classes.; some people occasionally feel a bit tipsy as the  positive vibrations build.  It is only two hours, but is nourishing for your mind, body and spirit and perfect for your wellbeing.  A $10 donation is asked.


The Third level includes Japanese exercises that take you deep into spiritual growth so that your wave of consciousness becomes even higher and shows you a way to feel yourself becoming one with the universe The names of the level vary slightly but they retain the same essence. In those early years when Usui Reiki Ryoho was first taught in Japan this level was extremely difficult for anyone to reach, and referred to as the secret level.  Shinpiden translates into English as teaching of the mysteries.  From here you can go on to the fourth level if you would like to be able to teach.

The second level varies in name only between stylesThe meaning of this second level is still deeper teachings.  You are ready to move after completing Shden n when you  have practicing exercises enough so that Byosen Reikan-ho comes naturally to you and whenever needed you can become deeply centered and peaceful in your life.  The symbols Usui Sensei created are introduced to expand your awareness of how expansive Usui Reiki is and use until you no longer need training wheels. As you focus on allowing Usui Reiki to flow over time and distance you can feel your awareness expanding in many waysYour whole self changes to a higher vibration as you weave more of these vibrations into your everyday life.

The Shoden level  is the powerful beginning on your Usui Reiki Ryoho journey. This Japanese style embraces the original spiritual practice Mikao Usui founded as exercises guide you to bring mind, body, and spirit together into balance and surround with harmony; what is in-blance and usrrounded with harmony heals.  The multiple empowerments you receive are just the beginning; Japanese exercises, techniques and meditations guide you to improve the quality of your life and the lives around you.

Look closely at this photograph and see three circles to Reiki energy circles the left and above my dog. This was taken inside my healing studio to show a friend the hall leading to the green (waterless) restroom. The circles are Usui Reiki, which automatically flows through me and in this case fills my healing studio.
