Online Reiki Training
So you’re thinking about studying Reiki. Congratulations! Studying Reiki is not only a gift you can offer the world but is, first and foremost, a gift to yourself.
When I started studying Reiki in 2011, I wanted to use Reiki to help my massage clients and also my brother-in-law who was recovering from partial paralysis and who I convinced to come along to my first Reiki training. I wanted to learn how to do hands-on healing, improve my intuition, help other people. I wanted to understand what all this talk of “energy” was really about. It turns out that I would learn all of those things and more, but the most important thing – connecting to my true self – was what my soul had signed up for.
During the first workshop I took, I had such a profoundly visceral experience of old trauma that I was holding onto in my body and in my being that I vowed then and there that it was time for me to heal. Ever since, the practice of Reiki has helped me tap into something within myself that is also so much bigger than myself – Reiki. Cultivating my connection to Reiki allowed me to feel safe enough to begin to heal and continues to help me clear away the fear and hurt that separates me from who I really am. Everyone’s Reiki journey is unique, but ultimately, if you do the practice and open up to possibility, it will guide you to tap into your own inner resources and provide a stronger connection to who you truly are. That is the real gift of Reiki.
Begin your Reiki journey and find out where it leads you.
What is unique about Japanese style Usui Reiki trainings?
I have taught three different styles of Reiki (Western Usui, Holy Fire and now Japanese Usui). Currently I teach a style not commonly taught in the West, which is closer to the way Reiki was originally taught in Japan when the system was first developed by its founder, Usui Mikao, in 1922.
Check out this blog post about why I now teach in the Japanese style or this post that dives into some of the key differences that set this style apart from its Western counterparts

Reiki Level II (Okuden)
Okuden means “inner teachings” and guides students deeper into their relationship with the system of Reiki during this 8-hour course. Practices and concepts from Level I (Shoden) are reinforced alongside the teaching of additional elements of the Japanese system of Reiki, including: Three Reiki symbols and their mantras (including chanting), three Reiju/attunements, distant/remote Reiki (sharing Reiki across space and time) and professional Reiki practice. The concept of interconnectedness and importance of direct experience are emphasized throughout.

Reiki Level III (Shinpiden)
Shinpiden means “mystery teachings,” and this 14- to 16-hour course is the highest level of training in the traditional Japanese system of Reiki. In the West, this level of training is often referred to as the Reiki Master Teacher level because, upon completion of this course, students may decide to become teachers. In addition to receiving a Reiju/attunement and learning how to perform Reiju, students learn the final symbol and mantra and how it relates to the Okuden symbols. Personal development as it relates to the concept of being Reiki, along with continued focus on direct experience, is emphasized throughout.
