Usui/Holy Fire® Reiki Classes
Usui Reiki (pronounced ray-key) Ryoho is a Japanese holistic healing technique that was discovered by Mikao Usui in the early 1900’s. It is the original form of Reiki, and is the healing modality that people refer to when they use the term “Reiki”. Reiki is defined as “spiritually guided life force energy”. Usui Reiki Ryoho is a very simple yet powerful technique that can be learned by anyone. Usui Reiki Ryoho is unique in that it is the only hands-on healing technique that can be used for healing others as well as for self-healing. Usui Reiki Ryoho is a gentle and effective technique used for stress reduction and relaxation, and promotes deep healing at all levels. All of our classes include Holy Fire Reiki, which is a powerful and gentle energy which comes from a higher level of consciousness and provides purification, healing, empowerment and guidance.

Holy Fire Karuna® Reiki Classes
Holy Fire Karuna® Reiki adds to the energy of Usui Reiki, providing the practitioner with more vibrational frequencies for more specific healing applications. Holy Fire Karuna® Reiki is a manifestation of the evolving nature of Reiki, and was developed, over time, into a complete energy healing system, by the International Center for Reiki Training. Holy Fire Karuna® Reiki is a very loving, but powerful vibrational frequency that is the expression of Universal Compassion in action. It harmoniously adds to and blends with the loving vibration of Usui Reiki to bring about deep, transformative healing. It goes very deep, allowing major healing issues to be acknowledged, processed and healed very quickly, because the issues are acted upon in their basic energetic form. Includes Holy Fire, which is noticeably more refined and comes from a higher level of consciousness.
Holy Fire Karuna® Reiki Master
There are 8 practitioner symbols and mantras that are taught in this 3-day class, each with a unique vibration that activates certain frequencies for healing, in addition to the Master symbols and their mantras. You will also learn chanting and toning techniques. Instruction and practice will be provided in giving all Holy Fire Karuna® Holy Fire Reiki placements and ignitions. Upon completion of the class, you will be registered as Holy Fire Karuna® Reiki Master with the International Center for Reiki Training, which will allow you to teach according to the center’s standards, and your students will receive their certificates and registration through the center as well. This class qualifies you to teach both Usui Holy Fire® Reiki and Holy Fire Karuna® Reiki. Prerequisite: 12 months since completion of Usui Reiki Master Teacher Class or permission of the instructor.
