Reiki Instructor

What credential do I earn?

There are various levels you can attain: Reiki Level I, Level II, Advanced Reiki Training (ART), and Reiki Master. There are a variety of Reiki styles. These trainings will follow the Usui Reiki System of Healing, which is perhaps the most common. Once you have completed the initial course, Reiki Level I, you will be able to practice Reiki on yourself and others from a systematic and/or intuitive approach. If you continue on the Reiki certification path, you will receive advanced knowledge and experience of the subject of Reiki, a stronger connection with this energy, and at the Master Level, the ability to teach Reiki to others.

Also, in recent years a new energy called Holy Fire has been integrated into this Usui Reiki system. It is still the same Reiki practice, but it is enhanced with this higher energy which you will receive at each level.

We accept certifications from other programs, so if you would like to take your next level of certification with Jennifer, please contact her to confirm that your current certification is consistent with this Reiki system.

Is Reiki Level I right for me?

Would you like to have the ability to help people heal, and bring deep relaxation and peace to yourself and others? Have you received Reiki before and felt drawn to it? Does your intuition tell you that there’s something more in this life; a deeper spiritual connection to be discovered? Are you ready to let go of what no longer serves you, ascending to a higher level of awareness?

If these questions resonate with you, Reiki Level I Training is for you! Reiki is a Japanese technique for deep relaxation and healing using spiritually guided energy. In this Level I class you will receive the ability to channel Reiki to yourself and others to elicit peace, healing and enlightenment. This training includes the Holy Fire II energy, which is a more refined and enhanced Reiki energy.

If you have never received a Reiki treatment but are curious about the training, you may want to try a session first to experience Reiki before becoming a practitioner.

Reiki Level I Training includes:

  • Meditation
  • Lecture and discussion about Reiki and its history
  • Reading from the manual (which is provided)
  • The Attunement (the process through which you receive Reiki energy)
  • Instruction on Reiki techniques
  • Plenty of time to practice using your new gift

Is Reiki Level II right for me?

If you have received a Reiki I attunement, had enough practice and integration that you feel ready for the next level, and you feel guided to delve more deeply into the practice of Reiki, join Jennifer Shope for your Reiki Level II training!

You will receive the Holy Fire II energy along with your attunements to the basic Reiki symbols and instruction on how to use them. The Holy Fire energy adds a deeper and more enhanced quality to the previous Reiki energy. The symbols will strengthen your connection to Spirit, add new tools for healing to your Reiki practice, and assist you in sending distance Reiki. You will learn more techniques as well as deepen your own healing process as you ascend to a higher level of spirituality and awareness.

Reiki Level II Training includes:

  • Meditation
  • Lecture and discussion
  • Reading from the manual (please bring your William Rand manual)
  • The Attunement
  • Instruction on Reiki techniques
  • Plenty of time to practice using your new gifts
