This playful, powerful and thorough introductory reiki class connects you to reiki and teaches the fundamentals of reiki ideas, history, and techniques. You’ll experience reiki energy, and be able to treat yourself and others for the rest of your life. Includes discussion of five main ideas, reiki attunement, lots of experiential practice time, teaching materials, reiki certificate, and is held in a safe and nurturing space. Feeling reiki flowing through your hands for the first time is magic – and we laugh a lot!
I’m very honored to play in the reiki river with you! Reiki brings us together in exactly the right way at exactly the right time – each class is unique, and amazing. One day before the course, I’ll email confirmation of date, time, and location to enrolled students. We gather 15 minutes before class starts, and allow time to be gentle and loving with ourselves after – expect that you might want some sweet down time after our class meetings. Each group becomes a family, and the most extraordinary folks show up!
These classes are warm, loving, and change your life forever. We glow together after a weekend of laughter, hugs, ridiculous jokes, play, openness, and fun, and often plant seeds for lifelong friendships. It’s very possible to engage deeply with the sacred and experience powerful, profound healing…while having a great time and laughing a lot. We’d love for you to come join us in circle!
We’ll connect with our classmates and quickly become a cohesive group in a setting that’s both sacred, joyful, and playful. We explore:
- what reiki is
- the history of reiki
- hand positions (self and others)
- what to expect after your attunement
- how to take care of yourself
- how to offer a reiki session
- intuitive (scanning) treatments
- traditional (hand positions) treatments
- grounding and clearing
- reiki meditation
- attunements (initiation)
- group reiki in class (reiki share)
We’ll enjoy time to integrate and rest during hour-long lunches both days, and float blissfully through group class attunements, before we enjoy the magic of laying on of hands. We laugh a lot, we practice a lot, and move from ‘knowing nothing’ about reiki to a large group reiki share with confidence by the end of our weekend together. Every group becomes a family, and we build a container for each cohort to meet up and practice outside of class, and keep your reiki practice alive and vibrant.
By the end of class, you have received your reiki teaching materials, a shoden level (reiki I) attunement, given and received reiki treatments, practiced hand positions on self and others, learned a lot about reiki and how you can use it in your daily life, asked questions until your noggin is happy and full, been presented with your reiki certificate, participated in a large group reiki share, and are a reiki I practitioner for life…woohoo!
Each class organizes a reiki circle after graduation to practice in an ongoing way (we have one reiki graduate group that’s been meeting for almost 10 years), and students are encouraged to come practice reiki and deepen in community at our regular events. Congratulations on embarking on the reiki journey, friends!

We’ll enjoy days of laughter, sharing stories, energy work, and a healing space full of love and light. Always, reiki engineers the perfect experience for us, so that we feel held up and supported. These classes are just incredible – the caliber of folks who show up amazes me every time. I can’t wait to be in circle with you – learning reiki is magical, wondrous, and one of the most beautiful gifts we can experience. Welcome home, friends!
