"Once all the noise is quieted, it's amazing what has room to make itself noticeable. I had so many revelations in that space..."
~Sabina Morgan, Reiki Shoden student

Reiki is a gentle and powerful balm for the mind, body and spirit. Stepping into the practice of Reiki for one's self and others puts this healing balm in your hands at any time, and for your whole lifetime. It can, if you choose to follow it further, open up pathways to deeper levels of spiritual exploration (See below for more info on Reiki and my practice).

In this Shoden Reiki 1 (first degree) training you will receive all that you need to develop a vibrant and fulfilling Reiki practice for treating yourself and others. It provides a direct experience to begin unraveling the mystery of your own True Self. This training will be deeply experiential, intuitive and embodiment-based. Our teaching draws heavily on the deep roots of Reiki in Japanese Buddhism. You will emerge from it as a certified Reiki I Practitioner.

In this training you'll receive:

--Hands-on, embodiment-based experiences of sensing and engaging energy

--Intimate experience of Reiki self-treatments in a deeply relaxing meditative practice

--The initiations, protocols and hands-on practice for offering full Reiki treatments to others. Grounding in the principles and practice of Reiki.

--Exploration of the double-cloaked history of Reiki, its fascinating, unlikely pathway to the West, and its relevance to a vibrant modern Reiki practice.

--Certification as a Reiki I Practitioner.

After training, students receive these on-going opportunities:

--Monthly Practitioner Group: Gatherings that support your personal practice, and service opportunities to bring Reiki to the larger community.

--Re-immersion (review trainings): Students are always welcome to review a training when space in the class permits, and deepen their experience. Re-immersions are offered on an optional donation basis. Donations are added to our scholarship fund.

--Treatments: When class size permits, students may attend the treatment portion of a class and give/receive sessions at no charge. Students are also welcome to schedule Reiki sessions with Michaela on a donation basis.

SCHEDULE: Saturday 9:00-4:30 & Sunday 9:00-4:30
