These classes are taught with the materials created by William Lee Rand through his "International Center for Reiki Training". I was attuned as a Reiki Master and Karuna Reiki® Master through this lineage. Information on William Lee Rand, the materials and Reiki can be found at his website at
Reiki Level I
This class is a combination of discussion, hands-on training and the attunement process. Students are given a verbal history of Reiki, the system of hands-on healing techniques and the Reiki principles. We discuss the lineage of Usui Reiki and how it came to America. We will also discuss the human energy system and how Reiki interacts with that to help affect healing in ourselves and those we give treatments to.
During the class, students are shown the hand positions for giving self-treatments and the positions for treating others. Additional techniques, which were developed by the International Center for Reiki Training, are shown to the students to give them extra tools for use in their healing sessions.
After the hand positions have been learned, students are lead through a relaxing meditation to open the column of light, called the Sushamna by the Yogis, that energetically runs along the spine connecting us to the Earth below and the spiritual realms above. After the mediation is complete, students are attuned and the Reiki energy begins flowing through them. Due to the powerful, healing energies that are drawn in during the attunement process, the attunement itself manifests a very powerful healing for the initiate. This is true for every attunement at every level.
This attunement is good for the life of the practitioner and will allow the Reiki energy to flow though them no matter how frequently or infrequently they use it. After the attunements, students exchange treatments on each other which allows the energy to fully ground into their being and open all the energetic pathways necessary for giving a Reiki treatment.
The class lasts between 4 – 5 hours. All students receive a manual that documents all of the above information as well as additional information for assisting with healing specific issues or conditions. After the class, students may contact Michael at any time for ongoing support and assistance with questions or issues which surface related to Reiki.
Class cost: $100
Reiki Level II
This level takes the student to a deeper level with the Reiki energy. At this level students are shown three sacred, secret symbols which are used to amplify the energy which they channel during a Reiki session. The symbols also allow the student to send Reiki to others at a distance, either across the room or to someone on the other side of the planet.
With the Level II training, students are also shown additional healing techniques which can increase the healing abilities and the effectiveness of a healing session. Class time is used to allow students to learn the symbols and give treatments to each other using them.
As in Level I, The students are led on a guided meditation to open themselves up to the higher level Reiki energies which will begin flowing through them during the Level II attunement process. In order to be admitted to this training, students must have successfully completed Level I training, either from Michael or any other Reiki Master. These classes can be taken together in a single weekend or individually at different times depending on the students needs. The cost is the same whether they are combined or separate. Manuals are neither provided nor necessary at this level. The class lasts approximately 2 – 3 hours.
Class costs: $250
Advanced Reiki Training
This level is for those seeking the deepest level of commitment to Reiki without becoming a Reiki Master. In the class, students will be shown the Usui Master symbol which will increase the effectiveness of the other symbols and can be used for healing. Advanced techniques are taught which help the student to achieve goals and resolve life lessons. Students are shown how to use Reiki to protect themselves and others. A meditation is used to help strengthen the mind and expand consciousness. The students are also taught how to use the Usui Master Symbol to enhance the power of the symbols learned at Level II.
Students are shown how to use crystals and stones to set up a Reiki healing grid. With this grid, Reiki can be continuously sent to themselves to assist with personal goals or to others to assist in their healing. Reiki aura clearing techniques are also taught to assist in removing negative psychic energies from the Reiki practitioner or their clients.
Students must have completed Levels I and II, from any Reiki Master and worked with the Reiki energy for at least 6 months. For those students who plan on taking this level as well as the Master level in one weekend, a manual is included which documents all the information given at this level as well as those taught at the Master level. For those not combining the levels, the manual is not given until the Master class due to information contained within it pertaining specifically to the Master level. This class lasts approximately 6 hours with a 1 hour lunch break.
Class cost: $225
"The world of subtle energy opens our minds to what we know at heart about ourselves and life.We live in the realm of energy, whether we acknowledge it or not. Becoming acquainted with it and accepting its effects on our body, mind and spirit helps give us mastery over our actions, thoughts and attitudes."
