What is Reiki?

Reiki comes from the Japanese words for wisdom and chi (or life force). It truly is a wise energy, and those who learn it gain enhanced personal awareness and spiritual connection.

Reiki fosters natural self-healing and relaxation, reduces stress, balances energies in the body and relieves pain and discomfort. It adapts to the needs of the recipient and helps with meditative states.

Our teachers, who are all certified master teachers in Usui Shiki Ryoho, are committed to restoring the sacredness of this training. As a result, we only train in person, one attunement at a time. We train students in all levels of the Usui Method of Reiki.

Reiki I and Reiki II are taught in a group workshop setting. The Reiki Master and Reiki Master Teacher training are held as retreats on sacred land. This retreat setting allows students to receive and integrate the energy before returning to everyday life.
