This Meetup was canceled.
Reiki Level 1 Class covered in Two Saturdays, Jan 31 and Feb 28.
When teaching hands-on healing techniques, Hyakuten Inamoto says, "Hands, surrender, smile." This is the basis for practicing Reiki in this traditional Japanese lineage. This "keep it simple" style of Reiki helps practitioners to improve mind and body to achieve and maintain optimal health, to live a healthy and peaceful daily life, and to strive on through daily practice to achieve Satori or Anshin Ritsumei, which is absolute inner peace, also called enlightenment.
Like the other Reiki classes I teach, this is a slowly unfolding practice. The primary difference logistically is that I will be offering this style of Reiki as a weekend class that meets two Saturdays to make it more accessible for people with busy schedules. There are certain requirements and homework determined by Komyo Reiki Kai standards that must be completed after the class is over before you can receive your certificate--this makes it easy for you to practice on your own in your own time.
This is not a fast-track Reiki system--it generally takes two years to become a Komyo Reiki Kai Shihan (teacher). But the rewards are immense as you are able to work on your own, become part of my community of students, qualify for discounted training, and re-sit classes (at an enormous discount) to learn and see anew from your perpetually increasing level of understanding.
I am a Komyo Reiki Kai certified Shihan and studied under Hyakuten Inamoto. The requirements of my classes exceed the rigorous standards of the Komyo Reiki Kai International Association (http://komyoreikikai.org/what-is-reiki/what-is-komyo-reiki-kai/class-standards/).
Komyo Reiki is taught in four levels: Shoden, Chuden, Okuden, and Shinpiden.

What's the difference between the two Reiki styles that I teach, Usui Reiki Ryôhô and Komyo Reiki? Read my article (http://joyvernon.com/Blog/whats-the-difference-between-usui-reiki-ryoho-and-komyo-reiki/) that attempts to explain the difference using a tarot analogy!
Two Saturdays, Jan 31 and Feb 28, 2015. 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
