Reiki is mostly thought of as a way for healing and stress reduction. Although is has been successfully used for a variety of ailments and conditions, we belief it is of spiritual origin. We receive the greatest benefit by being attuned to this energy and working ourselves with it directly. Reiki helps us to overcome obstacles and our life may change. The changes we experience differ depending on needs and aspirations of every individual. It can be seen as a blessing and is always for the highest good. Many students report a turn in their lives, relationships, etc. and are truly amazed at the results.

There are three degrees (or levels) of Reiki:
Reiki has gone through many changes in the West since Dr. Usui developed this healing art in the 1920”s in Japan. Mrs. Takata was the first American Reiki practitioner and teacher in the US. She learned Reiki in Japan and followed the practices as taught by Drs. Usui and Hayashi with some modifications to make Reiki acceptable and comprehendible for our culture and time. Our classes reflect those teachings. Included in this class are hand placements to heal yourself and others, four practice sessions/healings, and other instructions and meditations as taught by Usui, Hayashi and Takata. You will receive four empowerments over this two-day class and Dr. Usui’s Original Handbook with hundreds of color photographs. Taking any of our Reiki classes qualifies you to receive a life subscription to our monthly Reiki Sharing at no additional cost. Our classes are certified.
This is the level for Distance/Absent Healing and furthers your empowerment. Reiki can be sent beyond the limitation of time and space with the help of the three second degree reiki symbols. They are also used to enhance treatments, for protection, removing of obstacles, and much more.
This level is taught in a one-day class with seven hours of instructions. You will receive two attunements in this class that will empower you to use these symbols and increase the flow of reiki energy.
We will get to know the meaning of these symbols and memorize to draw and pronounce them. You will learn the many different uses, and how to use and send them. This is the intermediate level and you will receive your Second Degree Certificate.
The Reiki III training is divided into two parts. Originally being a Master (western term) meant to be a teacher. Since many students like to enjoy the benefit of the Master attunement and the increased intensity of the reiki energy associated with this level most teachers today offer what we call a “Reiki IIIa – Practitioner” level. The attunement provides the benefit of this level without the commitment and responsibilities of a teacher. This level is taught in a one-day class.
There is one empowerment and you will learn to draw and use the Master Symbol. It is expected that you have learned a great deal of Reiki and practiced it regularly before advancing to this level. It is essential that you can identify clients areas requiring attention. We introduce you to several advanced techniques and include a copy of Dr. Hayashi’s Handbook for your continued learning process.
Third Degree (3b)
We accept only students who have completed all previous levels with Karuna. This level takes some weeks to achieve and involves a number of requirements to qualify. Please contact us for more information.
This course is NOT a replacement for our Reiki Level 1 class. Level 1 is a two-day workshop and includes the four attunements consistent with Traditional Usui Reiki. The subjects of the below course only deepens/repeats some of the areas addressed in Reiki Level 1. The attunement given in this course is only a “refresher attunement” and is no replacement for the four attunements from Reiki Level 1. Although the four attunements are permanent and don’t need to be repeated to be effective most individuals enjoy them very much. It is for this purpose only that we have included one of them in this course. For more information on our Level 1 course please read the description.
You need to have at least a Level 1 to participate. This course is suitable for Reiki Practitioners of all levels.
Covered in this 2 ½ hour course is:
Additional practice, creating a greater awareness and perception
One Reiki level 1 Attunement
The Five Reiki Principles
The practical approach. This is an expansion to the introduction covered in Reiki Level 1.
Dr. Usui made the Five Reiki Principles an important part of Reiki. But “Just Say No” doesn’t seem to work. Are emotions really avoidable? How do we work with them without denial but through understanding? We will be exploring them to a greater depth and finding the antidote to each of them. Practicing this makes our everyday living more interesting and enjoyable. It’s truly rewarding.
We will look again at the main hand placements (about 18) plus treating the back.
What to do and what to avoid.
How to work under less than optimal conditions.
This Advancement course focuses on strengthening and improving the sense of the energy flow for greater effectiveness. The five levels of intensity have been originally a part of Reiki in Japan but haven’t been taught outside of Japan until recent years. The attunement given in this course is only a “refresher attunement” and is no replacement for the four attunements from Reiki Level 1. Although the four attunements given in our Level 1 class are permanent and don’t need to be repeated to be effective most individuals enjoy them very much. It is for this purpose only that we have included one of them in this course. You must have at least Reiki Level 1 to qualify for this course.
Covered in this 3 hour course is:
Gassho – Additional Practice for the perception of the Reiki energy.
Exercise to increase the Reiki flow
Perception of the five levels of intensity
Intuitive treatments & scanning
One Reiki Level 1 attunement
