Shinpiden: Reiki Master Training in Methuen, Massachusetts

Usui Reiki Ryoho Shinpiden (Third Degree & Master/Teacher Training)


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. 

Shinpiden, meaning “mystery teachings,” is the original name for third-degree Reiki training. This course is aimed at second degree practitioners and established teachers seeking an opportunity to deepen their understanding of Reiki and broaden the scope of their practice. The core goals of shinpiden training extend beyond teaching, as it focuses on spiritual development and gaining inner peace.

Upon completion of the third degree, participants receive the title shihan, meaning “instructor” in Japanese–better known as “Reiki Master” in many Reiki lineages. Graduates of the course are able to perform the mysterious reiju, an initiation or attunement ceremony to transmit Reiki to others.


  • Initiation and training in first and second degrees (or higher) in any Reiki lineage; proof of certificates may be required
  • At least six months of personal or professional Reiki practice
  • Proficiency in conducting Reiki sessions both in person and remotely
  • Make an effort to live each day by the Five Precepts

Shinpiden training includes:

  • Review of core concepts from first- and second-degree training
  • The origins, meaning, and uses of the fourth symbol and mantra
  • How to perform reiju and Western-style attunements, both in-person and remotely
  • Advanced Japanese Reiki techniques
  • Additional techniques for healing and self-development
  • Inspiration for planning and teaching effective Reiki classes
  • How to lead Reiki shares, practice sessions, reiju-kai, and more

Participants receive:

  • Certificate of completion
  • Comprehensive manual
  • Supplemental handouts and instruction
  • Traditional reiju (initiations or attunements) to empower students and initiate them into the lineage of Usui Reiki Ryoho
  • Hands-on practice time for treatments, reiju/attunements, and advanced meditations
  • Resources for continuing education, professional development, and further exploration of Reiki
  • Ongoing support from Nicholas

Nicholas combines decades of experience in the healing arts with his deep love for the system of Reiki to offer unique, in-depth classes that transform your perspective of Reiki. You’ll receive the insight he’s gained from traveling around the world to study and practice many styles of Reiki as he guides you to experience the spiritual heart of this sacred practice for yourself. Whether you are new to Reiki or a seasoned practitioner, training with Nicholas offers new perspectives and wisdom from the heart of the system of Reiki.
