Reiki Classes

Elemental Transcription image

In the West, Reiki training is taught at three levels (or sometimes four). Basic information about the focus of each level is outlined below. You do not have to be a massage therapist to use Reiki, although for the second “professional” level, the type of training that massage therapists are exposed to is helpful for a better understanding of basic anatomy and physiology. I will be happy to recommend readings and books for this purpose if you are interested in acquiring a better knowledge of the human body.

In 2017, I will be teaching Reiki Levels I and II. Dates and times will be posted (below) in advance. If you are interested in participating in any of these courses (usually set up for a Friday evening and all day Saturday) please contact me by email prior to paying the advance deposit, and let me know a little about yourself and your reasons for seeking Reiki training. If you have never experienced Reiki, I require that all prospective students first receive a Reiki treatment from me, so that the process is familiar.

I always encourage students to take the courses with a friend or a partner, so both can have someone compatible with whom to practice the techniques. Too many students allow newly acquired skills to remain unused. This “two people registering together” arrangement is particularly convenient for couples, who will find this new knowledge immensely helpful for reciprocal comfort, deep communication and healing. The real focus of Reiki is not to set up a “professional” practice, but to learn practical skills for increasing one's awareness of and appreciation for the intelligence of the body and its constant connection to the intelligence of the universe.

I teach all levels of Reiki from a very unique and “personal experience” based perspective and make use of a variety of teaching aids (multimedia and visual illustration materials, inspirational quotes and book excerpts) that help illuminate the history, philosophy and practice of Reiki in a very clear way.

Reiki for Life jacket

If you are planning to register for any of my classes, please purchase the following course book, Reiki for Life, by Penelope Quest, before the class begins. It is available from Powell’s Books, Amazon or other online vendors.

All students completing any of my Reiki classes will receive a complimentary copy of my illustrated artist’s book, A Tree of Life.
