Reiki training

Why take a Reiki class?

Reiki training strengthens your own innate ability to offer healing to yourself and others.

Reiki can be learned in short period of time because of the attunement process. An attunement is a meditation shared by a Reiki Master and a student that further opens the student's energy body and allows the student to channel Reiki energy.

Students also learn a simple, specific method for offering healing.

After completing Reiki Level One, you're able to give yourself Reiki treatments for the rest of your life!

Please note: Reiki helps create balance in your life on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels; Reiki treatments and training do not constitute medical diagnosis and do not replace treatment from a qualified medical doctor.

Why Reiki Jin Kei Do?

Reiki Jin Kei Do means "Reiki in the Way of Wisdom and Compassion." This rare lineage of Usui Reiki extends from a line of Buddhist monks in the Himalyas and was discovered by a Japanese Zen Buddhist monk named Seiji Takamori. After spending years in a small, remote monastery in Japan becoming a Reiki Master under the instruction of his teacher, Takamori set out on an extensive search for the origins of Reiki. Takamori eventually discovered a group of monks that practiced a larger, ancient healing technique that contained the teachings of Reiki. He stayed with these monks until he had learned all that he was able and then went out into the world to teach. The result of that remarkable journey is the teachings of Reiki Jin Kei Do, a true spiritual discipline in which, through the use of meditation, energy-awareness and self-healing techniques, wisdom and compassion for both self and others are awakened so that true transformation may take place.

Buddho-EnerSense, Levels One & Two

If after Reiki II you want to further explore the energy of Reiki on a deep, profound level, Buddho-EnerSense may be right for you.

Buddho-EnerSense, Level One

Advanced Reiki Jin Kei Do training

What's next after Reiki Two? In the Reiki Jin Kei Do lineage, we are blessed with the opportunity to study the sacred teachings Seiji Takamori learned from Buddhist monks in his travels. We call these teachings Buddho-EnerSense.

I sometimes refer to Buddho as the "roots of Reiki." The study and practice of Buddho-EnerSense allows you to go much deeper with your meditation and healing practice, both in self-healing and treatment of others. Although based in Buddhism, this practice is for Reiki practitioners of any background. I offer Buddho-EnerSense Level One training to students who are ready to go deeper with Reiki.

In Buddho-EnerSense Level One, you will learn:

  • The Buddho Meditation (cycles 1 - 3)
  • Chi Nadi Exercises (gentle, flowing physical exercises)
  • Use and meaning of five sacred symbols
  • Advanced treatment techniques and breathing that can be integrated into Reiki treatment
  • Buddho-EnerSense Level One empowerment, certificate, and manual

Buddho-EnerSense Level One is approximately 12 hours of class time, usually taught over 3 - 4 class meetings to small groups and sometimes to individuals.

Pre-requisite: Reiki Jin Kei Do, Level Two OR Reiki Level Two from another lineage with phone interview. Those who have not had Reiki Jin Kei Do Level Two will meet with me outside of class to go over some lineage-specific topics.

The class fee is sliding scale $400 - $500 for Reiki Jin Kei Do students and $500 for others. You can make several smaller payments.
