Level 1 Reiki Training Online (Sunday Afternoon Session)

Reiki is a healing art and spiritual practice beloved by millions of people around the world. The word Reiki can be translated as “universal energy,” “mysterious presence,” “spiritual power,” or even “the energy of the universe.” It is a simple and profound method that brings body, mind, and spirit into balance with ease. Practitioners receive empowerments called reiju (also called initiations or attunements) to become Reiki practitioners.

Shoden, meaning “entrance teachings,” is the original name for the first-degree Reiki training. The first degree of Reiki focuses on the practice of healing oneself and others, developing energetic sensitivity, and learning the history and theory of Reiki. Many people experience profound healing as a result of their first-degree training.

This live, online Reiki course is offered in five two-hour sessions. Replays are available to registered participants for a limited time.
