Reiki Levels I and II – Holy Fire II Usui Reiki Certification in Accordance with International Center for Reiki Training (ICRT) standards
Reiki is a natural ability to heal oneself and others. It is a Japanese form of energy healing whereby spiritually guided life force energy is channeled through the practitioner to self and others in order to promote rest, relaxation, stress reduction and healing. The ability to use Reiki is transferred from the Reiki master to the student through “Placements” (formerly called “Attunements”) and “Ignitions”, which allow the student to channel the Reiki energy. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Level I: The purpose of this class is to provide the learner with basic knowledge, history and skills to perform Reiki for healing themselves and others.
Level II: This level provides the learner with more knowledge of how to treat others and includes Reiki symbols. It is more spiritual and delves further into energy work and healing.
Practitioners must practice at least 6 months after completing Level II before taking Advanced Level. Advanced Level and Master Level classes will be offered in the future, but they are not approved for continuing ed credits through any of the professional boards.
Class size limited to 16 people. Complimentary lunch will be included each day. If you have special dietary concerns, please bring your own food.
From the International Center for Reiki Training (ICRT) website:
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit and creates many beneficial effects including relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being. Many have reported miraculous results.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an “attunement” given by a Reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” to improve one’s health and enhance the quality of life.
