Transformational Reiki Training Program FAQs
Return to Reiki Training Program Overview
Q. What if I've already taken Reiki from someone else? Can I just take the EMF part of your training?
A. Yes, you will then receive a Certificate of Completion as an EMF Balancing Practitioner, and not as a Practitioner of Energetic Arts.
Q. What if I've taken Reiki I from someone else? Can I jump in at Level II or Advanced with you?
A. Because the content and experience levels from different teachers is so varied, and because I have significantly expanded my curriculum for the Reiki classes, I require that students begin with Level I with me. There is the option of meeting one-on-one with me to review and compare training if someone desires to join the classes mid-series, but this isn't something that I usually recommend.
Q. I noticed that you don't offer a Reiki Master Teacher class in your schedule. Why is that?
A. Being a practitioner and being a teacher are two entirely different roles, and it is my opinion that the skills and experience necessary to be an effective teacher are not transferred to someone else in one day or in a weekend workshop. That is the biggest drawback with traditional Reiki that I see today.
I have been working with Reiki for over 17 years and the material and experience that I bring to my classes goes far beyond traditional Usui Reiki. The energy of planet earth — and likewise our evolving personal, physical and energetic systems — is vastly different today than it was in 1870, when Dr. Mikao Usui is credited with re-discovering Reiki and bringing it back to the earth plane.
While I honor and respect those who have come before me, my intention with my book and classes is to now bring Reiki into the 21st century; to update its function, mechanics and scope so that it may be understood and utilized in ways that are more appropriate for who we are and the challenges that we face today.
Years of study and practice have gone into my curriculum. I continue to update and amend the material based on what I experience with each set of students that I work with, and with my own personal experience with clients. I have structured the classes in such a way that each student may gain the greatest benefit from each class.
Currently it is not a priority to develop a teaching program for what I do.
Q. What if I'm really drawn to your programs but I don't have the funds to pay for them? Do you offer discounts or trades?
A. I have foundthat the people who are the most suited to my work — and thus gain the greatest benefit from it — are those that have come to understand the importance of self-care. If you don't take the time to take care of yourself and to create your life, who is going to do that for you?
Consequently, when one places a high value on their own self-care, they manage to create the necessary resources to pay the tuition for the classes or individual sessions. My work is about embodying and applying the natural laws of the universe, and the first step is to have the clarity of intent to do something, the belief that you can do it, and the sustained commitment to yourself to follow your vision to completion. When someone has a big enough desire, I've seen the universe virtually stand on its head to deliver.
Trades can be sticky, tricky little rascals, and I prefer to keep my agreements clear. I have found thatthis works better for all involved.
And to borrow from a biblical expression, I would much rather teach someone how to fish and feedthem for a lifetime, then to throw a few fish on their plate and feed them for a day!
As an option, I wouldrecommend listening to my Prosperity and Abundance or Clarify Create Receive CD. They each contain powerful meditations to help you elevate your focus and vibration around resources and creating.
Staying in the Flow, my monthly meditation gathering is another possibility. In that group we do wonderful self-healing work, manifesting and creation exercises, and exercises to clarify and receive guidance from your Inner Being.
Q. I took Reiki with you a while ago and I lost my certificate and/or book. Can I get another one from you?
A. It depends on when you took your training. In 2009 I completely overhauled the curriculum for the Reiki classes and the requirements for Reiki Master Practitioner. If your training was after 2009, replacement Certificates that are picked up at my office are available for $5/each, or mailed to you for $10. I no longer offer replacement Certificates for training before that time.
