Reiki Certification - Levels 1 & 2

Alongside history, principles, logistics and ethics, we'll have fun learning about our physical, emotional and energy bodies, being grounded in goodness, making powerful connections, and utilizing positive energy flow for wellbeing ... plus lots of hands-on experience in the Reiki Clinic and some info on plant medicines! All in a convenient West End location.

In order to maintain an intimate, hands-on approach that empowers and prepares the student to confidently begin using and sharing Reiki immediately, we will only accept 6 students for this class. Easy-pay options help you secure a spot early.

  • Reiki 1: Friday from 6pm - 10pm

First and foremost, Reiki is for self-healing, relaxation, calming and clarity. You will receive your in-class attunement. We will focus on self-healing, as well as working with children, animals, plants, family and friends. We'll cover what Reiki is and isn't, Reiki history, theories, principles, hand placements, symbols and the role of intuition. 

  • Reiki 2: Saturday from 9am - 4:30pm

Prerequisite: completion of Reiki Level 1 training at Qi To Wellness prior to this date. If you are trained in Reiki Level 1 from another instructor, please call us before registering.

The focus is on a deeper commitment to the practice, extending beyond oneself and one's close circle (family and friends) to the treatment of others (both in person and remotely) as well as solidifying yourself as a Reiki professional in the greater community.

Roll up your sleeves and get ready for a day of grounding techniques, body scanning, more hands-on Reiki including remote sessions, discovering uses for Reiki in everyday life, and working with live clients in the clinic!

The Reiki Clinic is a practicum that begins with the Reiki Circle where you will practice Reiki with your classmates to develop a level of comfort. By afternoon, you will progress to offering 1:1 consultation + Reiki to a real life client (whom you invite), empowering you to put into action all you've learned. Your guests are welcome to stay for the graduation and celebrate your achievement!

Tuition includes ...

  • Reiki Handbook
  • Pre-class assignment
  • Pre-class remote attunement + in-class attunement
  • Hands-on practicum in the Reiki Circle and Clinic
  • Wholesale essential oil account with doTERRA + EO consultation (optional)
  • Reiki 1 Training Certificate or Reiki 2 Practitioner Certificate
