Reiki Classes & other workshops

The multiple empowerments (attunements) yo receive in each leve is only the beginning. You deserve to be shown all the Japanese exercises, techniques and meditations included in the level you study, which requires at least 12 hours in classes, and a detailed manual for that level. Several of my students have said to me, “Time flies in your classes“.  Outlines of each of the 4 levels in both styles plus Pre-Shoden are on my Learning Gendai Reiki-ho & Komyo Reiki kai page   or <click here for brief descriptions>  My manuals are a combination of Shihans’ manuals and notes I took in classes; the certificates reflect those of my Shihans.

A student’s comment after completing Shoden level –“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


As you see below I break the 12 hours down into three 4-hours classes; For students traveling from other States or Canada the number of hours is broken down differently.  My monthly Usui Reiki Koryukai and monthly newsletter are two of the ways I offer continued support.

July’s Koryukai (gathering) is Sunday July 21; 12;30 -2:30 PM   Attending a Reiki Koryukai is a nice time to step back away from the wows of the world and enjoy the energy paving the way to satori; for those having completed one or more levels in a style honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho. We begin with Mawashi, then Shuyo-ho or similar exercises after which I give a focused Japanese Usui Reiki Technique to keep the pathway to the universal energy course clear. The Shudan Reiki-ho is not only a good way to practice your Byosen Reikan ho, but perfect for your wellbeing when you are the one receiving from all.  A $10 donation is asked.

 The Second level  takes you deeper into Reiki light (“light of the highest dimensions” Usui Sensei © universal).the meaning of Okuden and Chuden in Usui Reiki Ryoho is deeper teachings.  After having completed the first level in a style honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho, and taken the time to practice exercises, living the Usui Gokia, and feeling vibrations you are ready to improve the quality of your ability to allow Usui Reiki to flow. The symbols Usui Sensei created in 1925 are introduced along with techniques and exercises allowing you to experience Usui Reiki flowing over distance and time.

Gendai Reiki-ho Okuden  classes  Saturdays August 10, 17 & 24: 9:30 AM- 1:30 PM 

 Komyo Reiki Kai Chuden classes Tuesdays  August 6, 13 & 20:  9:30 AM- 1:30 PM


First level –Shoden  translates as first teachings and  is the powerful entrance into styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho that follow the essence in which Mikao Usui created what he referred to as “method to achieve personal perfection” © international 1999.   The focus is on self-healing & self-growth; when you heal yourself, you heal your family, your group, your community, and our world. The purposes go beyond opening your pathway to universal love & harmony (empowerment/attunement); the exercises and techniques guide you to improve the quality of your life in all areas.  

Gendai Reiki-ho Shoden  classes  Saturdays September 7, 14 & 21: 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM

Please note that if you cannot work the scheduled dates into you life’s schedule contact me to see what other dates are possible; I will teach private classes when needed. For students traveling from other States or Canada contact me and we can arrange the 12 hours in-class time in the best way to help out with lodging costs.  The fourth level allowing you to teach is most often private classes after the student has completed the third level in the style he or she wishes to teach, and taken the time to practice all exercises and techniques in all three levels.

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.
