Do you wish you had a tool that could help you have an overall sense of wellbeing and help you dissolve stress and anxiety? Reiki may be the key to help you unlock all of those doors.   Reiki (ray-key) means universal life force energy. It is called Universal because it is all around you.  As a certified Reiki Practitioner you will be taught to direct the flow of energy through your hands to help yourself and others experience a state of deep relaxation, enhancing self-healing.  Reiki helps you become more grounded and in touch with your intuition. It can help you release old patterns and heal and dissolve deep rooted trauma.  Reiki can help decrease stress and anxiety, reduce pain, improve mental clarity and connect you to your higher self, helping you shift your energy and gain new perspective. In this class you will learn the history of Reiki and how to conduct a Reiki session. Your hand chakras will be opened and you will learn how to transmit energy. At the end of class you will receive your First Degree Reiki Attunement and leave with a Reiki 1/First Degree Training Manual and Certificate of Completion. Class Outline: Energetic Protection – Smudging and Cleansing Energy The Importance of Grounding & Meditation in Energy Work Overview of the Chakra System What is Reiki and How to Conduct a Reiki Treatment – Hands Positions The History of Reiki and the Story of Mikao Usui The Principles / Precepts of Reiki Byosen Scanning What to Expect Post Attunement – The 21 Day Clearing Process Reiki Tools of the Trade Brief Discussion about Animal Reiki What is a Reiki Share and Why You Should Attend Reiki Resources and Reiki Volunteer Opportunities What to Bring: Brown bagged lunch, Water and Journal.  Tea and Snacks will be provided. All cell phones must be shut off prior to class and remain in bags until after class.  Please wear comfortable clothing and do not drink alcohol the night before.

Any questions about this class may be directed to Valerie York, Reiki Master Teacher at Doorways2Self@gmail.com.  REIKI LEVEL THREE / THIRD DEGREE / REIKI MASTER TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION / $200A Reiki Master is not one who has mastered Reiki, but one who has allowed the Ancient Healing Art of Reiki to master over and drench their entire lives. This requires that we surrender completely to the spirit of Reiki, allowing it to guide every area of our lives.  Do you feel called to take the next step in your Reiki studies?  Has it been at least six (6) months since your Reiki Level 2 training?  Have you attended at least 3 Reiki Shares and given at least 3 Reiki sessions to paid clients?  Do you find that people approach you and ask you questions about Reiki and you have learned enough to be able to answer their questions? If so, you are encouraged to sign up for this Master Class.   “The desire to grow is inherent in simply being alive. The joys of becoming a Reiki Master are many and you don't necessarily have to teach in order for the Master training to be useful. The additional healing energy, symbols, techniques and knowledge will add value to your healing abilities. Treating yourself, giving yourself and others healing attunements and treating others in person and at a distance will all be noticeably improved. The fact that you can pass Reiki on to friends and family is also a definite plus. Many take the Master training with just this in mind. However, if you ever decide to formally teach, you will be able to do so. As each person takes the Reiki Master training, and increases their personal vibration, this adds to the vibration of the whole planet!” ~ by William Lee Rand Your two (2) day Reiki Master Training will include two (2) Master Level Attunements and each student will leave with a Reiki Master Training Manual and Certificate of Completion.

Reiki may be the key to help you unlock all of those doors.   Reiki (ray-key) means universal life force energy. It is called Universal because it is all around you.  As a certified Reiki Practitioner you will be taught to direct the flow of energy through your hands to help yourself and others experience a state of deep relaxation, enhancing self-healing.  Reiki helps you become more grounded and in touch with your intuition. It can help you release old patterns and heal and dissolve deep rooted trauma.  Reiki can help decrease stress and anxiety, reduce pain, improve mental clarity and connect you to your higher self, helping you shift your energy and gain new perspective. In this class you will learn the history of Reiki and how to conduct a Reiki session. Your hand chakras will be opened and you will learn how to transmit energy. At the end of class you will receive your First Degree Reiki Attunement and leave with a Reiki 1/First Degree Training Manual and Certificate of Completion.

If so, you are encouraged to sign up for this Master Class.   “The desire to grow is inherent in simply being alive. The joys of becoming a Reiki Master are many and you don't necessarily have to teach in order for the Master training to be useful. The additional healing energy, symbols, techniques and knowledge will add value to your healing abilities. Treating yourself, giving yourself and others healing attunements and treating others in person and at a distance will all be noticeably improved. The fact that you can pass Reiki on to friends and family is also a definite plus. Many take the Master training with just this in mind. However, if you ever decide to formally teach, you will be able to do so. As each person takes the Reiki Master training, and increases their personal vibration, this adds to the vibration of the whole planet!” ~ by William Lee Rand Your two (2) day Reiki Master Training will include two (2) Master Level Attunements and each student will leave with a Reiki Master Training Manual and Certificate of Completion.
