Usui Reiki Level 1 Class

  • Home of David Byrnside

This is a 1 day, full day class for the first level of traditional Usui Reiki. The students of this class will have an opportunity to join in the Reiki 2 class scheduled for May with the students who took Reiki I in February. This class will be taught by Adam Trope under the supervision of David Byrnside. This is a donation based class, please read the note below regarding this.

Reiki is a form of energy healing that literally translates to English from Japanese to mean, "universal life energy". Reiki was first founded by Mikao Usui in 1922 during a mystical experience on Mount Kurama in Japan where he gained access to the Reiki energies and the ability to pass this energy onto others. Usui went on to use Reiki to help bring to health countless sick Japanaese as well as teaching it to over 2000 people. Since that time, Reiki has spread worldwide and proliferated rapidly, with today over 5 million people in the world having taken a Reiki class, making it one of the most popular forms of energy healing in the world.

Reiki has been proven in scientific studies to help expedite healing and alleviate stress. Since Reiki is a subtle energy, it works on the subtlest levels of the soul, helping to heal the whole body, mind, and spirit on a physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual level. Reiki works as both a self-healing tool as well as something to heal others with.

This Reiki 1 Class will include the following:

-Four attunements to the Reiki energy that will align the chakras of each student and allow permanent, lifetime access to the Reiki energies for them (these can often be powerful spiritual experiences)

-Basic knowledge of history and applicability of Reiki and energy healing

-Introduction to the Basics of giving a Reiki session both to oneself and others, including the 12 hand positions

-A meditation to use to help center oneself prior to starting the use of Reiki

-A chance to practice Reiki in a hands-on, low key environment


-And more...

Taking a Reiki I class is a LIFETIME investment in not only your own health, but those of the friends and family around you. For those interested, Reiki I is an amazing gateway into the wonders of Reiki, energy healing, and a true opportunity to get a firsthand glimpse of the Divine. For other people, even if you choose to never take another energy healing course in your life, Reiki I still will give you a fascinating look into a different aspect of reality and allow you the ability to help out yourself, family, and friends in times when healing is needed (it's amazing for getting rid of headaches and other aches and pains, although it goes much deeper than that). Here is a link showing scientific studies that show the effectiveness of Reiki: 

Moving forward I (Adam) have decided to make all of my Reiki classes donation based rather than have a fixed fee. Reiki is an invaluable tool which is a lifelong skill. The soothing, healing effects on the soul that Reiki has and the amount of potential benefit it can have on somebody's physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health and ability to handle life with more grace, ease, love, and joy is in my opinion priceless. It's a valuable tool for people of all paths and wakes of life. So why not put a fixed price on my class? Besides the fact that I think putting a fixed price on something I view as priceless is kinda tough to do and a bit arbitrary, the main reason is that I think that ideally in a society that we're hopefully moving towards Reiki and energy healing will have an increasingly mainstream place in Western medicine and be a part of standard, basic health care. I want as many people to learn Reiki as possible, and don't want Reiki to be a class thing where only people with ample income take Reiki classes and lower income people/students/people with large families, etc. miss out because they don't want to spend so much money on something that might be very new to them.  I love the inclusiveness of the Reiki community and don't want to exclude anybody based on the price of a class.

So how much should you donate if you take the class? Other Reiki I classes often charge $150+, and in the class recently taught before deciding to go donation based the fee was $100. Ultimately, though, I ask that you donate based on whatever you feel is reasonable at the end of the class based off both how much you feel you got out of the class as well as how much you can reasonably afford. If you can only afford to give a small token amount that's perfectly fine. Alternatively, if you love the class and have the money to spare and want to make a larger than average donation out of gratitude, that's much appreciated and great also. Finally, you also have the option of making a delayed donation, if you feel the class was worthwhile and would like to donate but need some time you are free to donate a week, month, or even a year later.

For any inquiries about the class, contact Adam ([masked]) or Davjd ([masked]) prior to the class.
