Reiki Training on Vancouver Island
 
Reiki 1 class
Saturday, October 21st and Sunday, October 22nd, 2017
10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. both days
 
Reiki workshops are friendly, comfortable and respectful. The groups are kept small and individual tuition is also available.  All classes fully meet the requirements of the Canadian Reiki Association.
 
The traditional Usui Natural Health System is taught with Japanese Reiki techniques integrated.  I use the four traditional symbols of the Usui Reiki line and the attunement method I received and was taught.  Each person in this lineage had four attunements (initiations) for Reiki Level 1 and one for each other level.  All their classes were taught in person. Please note that the Reiki 1 class requires 10 - 12 hours over two full days or three consecutive days with 3 to 4 hours each day.  
 
What is your Usui Reiki lineage?
 
Usui-Hayashi-Takata-Ishikuro-Robertson-Uma-Pardue-Seastrom-Young-Camerin-Ferguson.
In class you will learn about these Reiki Teachers in more detail and will receive a detailed lineage chart.  
 
Please scroll down for the class outlines for each Reiki level.
 
Where are classes held?
 
I teach in my home which is close to Campbell River in the Ocean Grove area. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable and the environment is non-smoking, pet and fragrance free.
 
I will also work with families in their homes.  This option may be best if there is a family member who would benefit from ongoing healing energy and some of the family wish to learn how to treat with Reiki.  Workshops are offered in alternate locations with suitable site and adequate registration.  If you wish to have a Reiki class in your area, please contact me.   
 
How are dates set?
 
When someone requests a Reiki class I will work out a suitable date and time with them.  Classes can be held on weekdays or weekends.  However, there are other ways of organizing the lessons.  For example, if you live nearby, you may choose to learn in the evenings.  I will work around the group or individual’s schedule.  We may need to be flexible if people are traveling distances. 
 
How long are the classes?
 
The exact length of the class depends on the number of participants in the workshop and the level.  Generally speaking, participants  should plan on 10 to 12 hours divided over two days for Reiki 1.  Reiki 2 may be offered in one day.  The amount of time needed can also be spread out over consecutive days or evenings if you live in the area.  
 
After we have set a date and time other students are welcome to join us and, if possible, we will adjust the schedule between us until it works for all.  The classes are kept small and friendly and you will have lots of hands-on practice so that you feel confident when you give Reiki.
 
Will I have follow-up help later if I need it?
 
Yes, of course! I find my students usually keep in touch with me through e-mail and just drop by for a visit.   Opportunities for follow-up practice will be provided and I am also always available to offer support.  I will send students the dates and times of any upcoming Reiki shares, which will usually be held on a Sunday afternoon, a few times each year.

After the workshop or classes I expect you will, at this stage, be keeping in contact with me for a while via e-mail, phone, or just dropping by if you are in the area to discuss how things are going for you.  I am always here to support your journey and to learn from you.  
 
 
Fourth Degree/Reiki Level 3B Reiki Master Teaching Level
 
Depending on where you live this course may be structured in different ways.   At a minimum we need to spend about 24 hours together based on four days of at least six hours each.   There are no restrictions on how much time the course takes.  I will work with you when and as you need me.  I will need to see your prior Reiki certificates if you are not a returning student.
 
Ideally I organize this course as ongoing mentoring.  To begin, we need to spend two days or about 12 - 14 hours working together in person to cover the printed course material in coil bound manual form written by me.  If you are local we can meet frequently for less hours at a time.  If you are traveling I will work with you to make sure we have plenty of personal contact time and also manage to communicate on a regular basis via e-mail or telephone
 
Subsequent hours are for you to “fine tune”, receive feedback, ask questions, discuss ideas, and generally develop your own understanding of how to organize and teach Reiki classes.  You will be welcome to attend any classes I am organizing and I will be happy to attend your classes to help out when you are certified.  
 
There are many important elements that must be covered in class.  Topics include:
 
  1. thorough reviews of the content of all previous Reiki levels. 
  2. understanding the importance of the symbols at all levels.
  3. practise passing attunements for each Reiki level.
  4. aspects of Western and Traditional Japanese Reiki.
  5. how you will organize and teach the content of your Reiki classes. 
  6. discussion on business issues related to your practice.
 
Above all it is important to remember that there is responsibility attached to becoming a Reiki teacher and it is important to be clear about your own motivations.  This is a joyful, spiritual  journey we are on together and we will learn much from each other.  Together we can learn and work simply, with compassion and gratitude, for the highest good of all.
