Our Reiki courses range from basics to classes for seasoned professional Reiki practitioners - at all levels. 

The subtle difference between our Reiki classes and regular western Reiki classes is that our course content, energy exercises, healing techniques and the initiation process are taught as closely as we can ascertain to the original Japanese ways, rather than via the western quick overview method. 

Our focus includes continued personal development and continued embracing of personal growth, as well as truly learning to use Reiki to heal (as oposed to learning to provide quick relaxation) - it's both a healing art and a long winding spiritual path.

All students will hopefully continuously practice Reiki after the classes finish - oneself, friends, peers, plants, pets, relatives and through our Reiki Exchanges, etc. For this reason our Reiki Exchanges and an ongoing support is sincerely offered to everyone who studies with us.

3) REIKI Intensive / 3rd degree and Master / Teacher Certification Class (not divided into two parts)

As well, this class allows you to learn the attunement process comfortably; to understand intricately how Reiki developed over the decades after Master Usui's transition; to teach others Reiki hands-on-healing with confidence and it's many facets; to manage your own spiritual development and inner spiritual guidance; and how to be a really good, practical, well-rounded, hands-on practitioner, teacher, advocate for Rekli and mentor, who can answer and address a wide range of questions and an even wider range of student backgrounds and to pass on this wonderful art and science with real joy and grounded insights.

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. 
                 ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Whether you are healthy or if you have a serious or chronic condition such as cancer, HIV, heart disease, arthritis, Crohn’s or Lyme’s disease, IBS, nervousness or if you require post-operative healing, or have received invasive treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation or surgery, then Reiki self-treatments can give you a great comfort, lessen the side effects of treatments and speed up the healing process. Learning this wonderful Reiki can never be soon enough! It is both preventative and healing.
A seasoned Reiki master teacher can guide you along this learning pathway with insight and patience.

When disease, heaps of stress, pain or a health crisis strikes, you may feel attacked on many levels and your energy, when you need it most, seems to desert you...
Reiki healing can help replenish!
