Course Description

Learn about Reiki, a universal energy that has been used successfully all over the world to heal emotional, physical and energetic imbalances. In this course you will learn how to perform Reiki on yourself and others.

In Level II of this course you will learn how to perform Reiki from a distance as well as how to use aspects of the Reiki energy to clear unwanted habits and manifest your goals.

In Level III, you will learn how to teach and perform attunements on others wanting to utilize Reiki for themselves.

You will receive a comprehensive manual as well as additional worksheets. You will have the choice to connect with other like-minded individuals in an active online group which you can access even after you have completed the course.

You will receive distance attunements for all three levels from your Instructor/Master. You will also receive a traditional certificate (pdf format) from your Instructor/Master once you successfully complete this course.

This course can be used as a way to enhance personal growth and/or work on any imbalances within yourself or those around you. Individuals wanting to add Reiki to their current practice or wanting to begin their own Reiki practice will benefit highly from this course. Also, individuals wanting to teach Reiki to others will have the material they need to do so once they have completed this course.

Why take this course?

This course is comprehensive and detailed. With over 8 hours of video lectures as well as a 160 page manual, you will have the tools you need to start using Reiki on yourself and in your life as well as with others on a personal and professional level.

Unlike in-person courses, you can take the time you need to work through the material while having continuous access to ask your Certified Reiki Master/Teacher questions. You also have lifetime access to the course materials and any updates that are made.

You will be given manuals in addition to the course manuals that you can edit and use for your own Reiki practice and teaching. This course is always being added to, and with your lifetime access you can access the new information whenever you choose.

Unlike other online Reiki courses that provide automatic attunements for all students at a set time, in this course you will set a specific time and date for your distance attunements that your Instructor will perform with you specifically.

You will also receive a unique and authentic Traditional Reiki certificate (pdf) via email once you have completed the course. You can use this beautiful certificate for display purposes with your clients.

There are almost 6,000 reviews of this course so please feel free to visit them and see what students in the course have to say.

Can Reiki really be taught online?

Absolutely! Rather than a couple of weekend courses you will likely pay thousands of dollars for, you can take all the time you need to go through the material and practice while having the support of your Teacher and classmates to connect with. I have had countless students who have taken previous in-person Reiki courses comment on how much more information they received in this course as well as how powerful the attunements were in comparison to the ones they received in person.

The naysayers are usually Masters who fear they will have fewer students and will not be able to charge as much money for their courses as a result of students choosing to learn Reiki online. Follow your heart and if this course resonates with you, join us.

Important Note:

Students who wish to receive certification in this course will receive attunements to Levels I, II and Master Reiki which will require that they provide personal information (name, email) when they schedule these attunements. Note: information provided is confidential and only used for the purpose of the attunement ceremony.
