A HUGE part of Reiki, both before and during the class, is preparing to become a clear path for energy flow. Cleansing the body and mind can be of tremendous benefit to this process.

While not mandatory, some students do choose to fast or cleanse for a number of self-determined days prior to beginning this process. It is recommended that students take a 3-day break from negativity, processed foods, animal flesh, cigarettes, caffeine, and intoxicants prior to their initial attunement. Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts and seed are life-giving and energy-sustaining. Should you opt to fast, you may want to continue the fast until the class is over. Again, this is voluntary.  Use your best judgement, do what's within your ability, and be gentle with yourself. 

NOTE: it IS important not to consume intoxicants (alcohol, marijuana, etc) for at least 24 hours prior to and 24 hours following your pre-class assignments and classes. Intoxicants are energy-altering and may possibly interfere with the attunement and energy processes.



This is a 14-hour class and we have a lot to cover, so please plan to arrive 5-10 minutes early, settle in and be ready to begin on time.  (check the website for each day’s start time)

Reiki Level 1 - Saturday morning
Reiki Level I & II - all day Saturday
Reiki Clinic (Reiki II only) - all day Sunday

  • Saturday will begin with classroom-type learning and progress to more hands-on participation

  • Sunday will be a mostly hands-on day with remote, group and individual Reiki

  • Attendance on both days is required to receive your Reiki II certificate

  • We'll take periodic stretch and bathroom breaks

  • You will receive your certificate at the end of day Saturday (Level I) or Sunday (Level II) or when assignments have been completed (Master Level)



The class will be held at Qi To Wellness - 1899 Billingsgate Circle, Henrico, VA 23238 (map). After you turn off Raintree Drive onto Billingsgate, make your first left into the parking lot, and then a right toward the end of the building. Look for Suite E, next door to the acupuncturist.



  • Snacks and lunch ... we have cold/hot water, teas, plates, cups, utensils, and a small fridge

  • Paper, notebook, or journal, and pen

  • Whatever you need for comfort : floor cushions, pillows, blanket ... chairs are available

  • Wear comfy loose clothing ... avoid wearing black or all-black if possible

  • Comfy shoes, sweater, jacket, etc if you plan a walk to the pond (1/4 mile) during lunch

  • An open mind, heart, and hands!

*Leave large, clunky, heavy, metal, and electronic jewelry (watches and fitness trackers) home. If you want to bring small personal crystals with you, that's fine.
