COST: $175. (Pre-registration required. $25 discount if prepaid by 5/31/19)

Reiki (pronounced “RAY-key”) is an ancient method of healing from Tibet. “Rei” means “universal” and “ki” corresponds to the “life force energy” known as Chi or prana in other Eastern systems like acupuncture or yoga. Thus, Reiki refers to the healing qualities of “universal life force energy.” Rediscovered in the late 19th century by a Japanese monk named Mikao Usui, Reiki works on physical, mental and emotional levels, restoring balance to body, mind and spirit. After completing this workshop, students will be certified Reiki 1 practitioners.

Instruction includes:

• History, nature, and science of Reiki.

• The Reiki Principles, Precepts & Ethics

• Experiencing Reiki energy

• Discussion of 21-day cleanse

• Essence scanning process

• Giving a Reiki treatment with hand positions

• Practice self-treatment hand positions

• What a Reiki lineage represents

• Legal responsibilities as a Reiki Practitioner

Two weeks left for these April Specials. May’s will be different:

APRIL 2019 SPECIALS

20-Minute Property or Home Reading

In preparation for spring cleaning and garden season I’m bringing back the 20-Minute Property or Home Reading special. You email me an address and possibly photos of a property you rent, own or are considering purchasing or moving to, and I email you my findings and suggestions. I can focus on the overall energy, things to tweak to support life goals, and/or permaculture suggestions and resources, based on my Permaculture Design Certificate and creation of a 1/3 acre food forest.

April 2019 Specials and a Radio Show

Happy April Fool’s Day! Despite today’s date, these are the real April 2019 specials.

Also, heads up that I’ll be on “A Fireside Chat with Zany Mystic” this coming Saturday, April 6th at 7 p.m. Pacific/10 p.m. Eastern U.S. time. I always enjoy talking with Lance White (aka Zany Mystic). We’re never quite sure what will come up, but likely topics include Black Moon Lilith, faeries, devas, tuning into the Otherworld and other practical/mystical topics. I’ll provide the link and reminder closer to Saturday — just wanted to let you know about the live show.

APRIL 2019 SPECIALS

20-Minute Property or Home Reading

In preparation for spring cleaning and garden season I’m bringing back the 20-Minute Property or Home Reading special. You email me an address and possibly photos of a property you rent, own or are considering purchasing or moving to, and I email you my findings and suggestions. I can focus on the overall energy, things to tweak to support life goals, and/or permaculture suggestions and resources, based on my Permaculture Design Certificate and creation of a 1/3 acre food forest.

This 20-minute email reading covers time spent reading your email, tuning in and typing up my reply. It may also be combined with a Property Clearing/Relocation Booster ($77) based on whatever I glean from the reading. $77 if prepaid on or before April 30, 2019. ($154 total if you’d like both the reading and the clearing. If you’d like 40 minutes, you can also double the email time.) Please contact me to sign up.

$555 Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher Certification Special

Every once in a great while, I feel led to offer this special. I’m taking $95 off the normal rate for in-person or correspondence/phone/distance training and certification for Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher.

This special obviously does not apply to everyone, as you will need at least Reiki Level 2 Certification from me or another Reiki Master Teacher in order to qualify for the training. I also require a casual but effective application process so that I get a sense of readiness for this next level. 555 indicates divinely guided positive change, so it seems like an appropriate number for certification to teach “divinely directed healing energy,” another definition of Reiki besides “Universal Life Force Energy.”

People considering this special might find this Reiki Master Teacher FAQ post helpful in answering common questions related to discerning your own readiness and our compatibility as teacher and student. You do not need to know for sure you’d like to teach Reiki in order to take this training. You just need to feel ready to learn Reiki from the perspective of one who could teach and who has committed to living the Reiki Principles as much as possible in your own life.

For more than 16 years, many students who already received their Reiki Level 3 training from another Reiki Master Teacher have completed their second Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher Certification with me in order to increase their confidence and knowledge before going on to teach their own students. Because many teachers don’t teach others to teach, preparing Reiki Master Teachers to teach their own students has become my specialty. I honor this training process as a sacred journey and transmission.

If you decide you’d like to apply for in-person (in Kalamazoo, MI) or long distance Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher Certification, please contact me, and we’ll start the short application process. The message to post this special was so strong this morning, that I’m excited to see who steps forward. Offer valid if prepaid on or by April 30, 2019.

New: Reiki Level 2 Symbols Guided Practice Journal and Reiki Healing Attunements Record Keeper

As promised, January 2019 begins the rollout of new products I created at the end of 2018. This first batch supports people trained and attuned to Reiki Level 2 and/or Reiki Level 3 (Master or Master Teacher). I have long wished these products existed for my students and finally figured out how to create them in a print on demand format. Details and links below:

Reiki Level 2 Symbols: A Guided Practice Journal

by Laura Bruno, M.A., RMT

You’re a Certified Reiki Level 2 Practitioner, now what? How can Reiki Symbols and Reiki Level 2 Awareness improve your daily life? This guided practice journal shares 42 prompts, exercises, techniques and ideas to deepen your experience of the Reiki Level 2 Symbols.

Learn new ways to give and receive Power, Mental Emotional Balance, and Reiki Distant Healing. Designed by a Reiki Master Teacher to support students trained and attuned to Reiki Level 2, this 42-day program explores Universal Life Force Energy in a profound and personal way.

Please note: this is a guided practice journal for people already trained in and attuned to Reiki Level 2. This guided practice journal helps you to maximize your Reiki Level 2 practice, but it requires prior training in how to draw the symbols.

I’ve taught Reiki since March 2002, and I keep encountering Level 2 Practitioners who finished their certification without a clear understanding of the amazing tools they received. This guidebook includes many tips and exercises I share in coaching sessions and in my Level 3 training of people who’ve taken Reiki 1 and 2 from other Reiki Master Teachers. It turns my research and experience into questions that help you discover how the Reiki 2 symbols work for you in your life. The more you practice Reiki, the stronger it flows. This guided journal allows you to take theory and apply it in a joyful, expansive practice. You can purchase this 7 x 10″ guided journal by clicking here.

Reiki Healing Attunements Record Keeper

By Sync Winks

The Reiki Healing Attunement is one of the most powerful techniques learned in Reiki Level 3. You can use a Reiki Healing Attunement to supercharge goals, health, career, finances, relationships, and so much more.

Use this journal to record the date, intentions, who or what you’ve attuned, and any observations before, during and after the Reiki Healing Attunement. The prompt pages leave room for notes, photos, drawings and other details to track your Reiki experience and results.

Please note: this is not an instruction guide. Learning how to perform a Reiki Healing Attunement requires training and certification in Reiki Level 3 (Master or Master Teacher). This is a notebook for people already attuned and trained to Reiki Level 3, who know how to perform a Reiki Healing Attunement. The notebook contains prompts to record each Reiki Healing Attunement in one convenient location, so that you can track and improve your results.

I published this notebook under the pen name Sync Winks, because this will be your Reiki Healing Attunements Record Keeper, not mine. A hallmark of Reiki Healing Attunements is a major increase in synchronicities and “can’t make this up” coincidences — hence the pen name Sync Winks.

I designed this 7 x 10″ notebook to coordinate with the Reiki Level 2 Symbols practice journal. Both products support greater awareness of how Reiki flows in your life. Recording date, time, intention and results of Reiki Healing Attunements in one place encourages deeper understanding of how this powerful tool works. You can return to your notebook for encouragement, faith boosting, and success reminders. You can also track experiments with different timing (i.e. morning, evening, New Moon, Full Moon, Wheel of the Year, etc.) to see if and how those things affect your results. You can purchase the Reiki Healing Attunements Record Keeper by clicking here.

Additional Products on the Way …

I know many of you are anxiously awaiting the guided Lyme recovery journal. That was a much larger project, and my final, final proof copy should arrive this Wednesday. As soon as it becomes available on Amazon, I’ll post the description and link. Besides the Reiki support products and the guided Lyme recovery journal, I created several other products I’ve long wished existed. Stay tuned for those!

Some Reiki Master Teacher Questions

A version of these questions came through via email. I thought other people might be interested in the very thorough answers, too, so I’m posting an anonymous version of the questions with my replies:

I was wondering what was required of you by your Reiki Master Teacher in order for you to be attuned to that level?

Thanks for your message. I took Reiki Level 3 Master and then Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher in early 2002. These levels feature the same attunement and very similar material, but Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher focuses on how to teach the course, as well as how to give Initiation Attunements. Reiki Level 3 Master only teaches the Reiki Healing Attunement, not initiation ones. I was certified after taking both classes, but I ended up apprentice teaching for a year with my teacher, who was also my partner, and then husband.

We had both practiced other healing modalities, but I’ve found Reiki the most powerful when used regularly. My then husband had three different Reiki Master Teachers for his Level 3 training and extrapolated what he felt was most important and consistent from each of them. He had also studied with Buddhist monks, and so incorporated some of that material as background to Usui’s Buddhist heritage. When he got Lyme disease, I began teaching Reiki on my own and studied numerous Reiki books, kundalini yoga, and other healing and energy modalities.

In terms of what I require of my own Level 3 students, it depends on if it’s an in-person or private correspondence class for Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher. I stopped teaching just the plain Reiki Master Class, because I found so many students took that class not thinking they would ever teach, only to find that they now feel called to teach. They have the correct Attunement, but not the training or knowledge of Initiation Attunements. I teach Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher with the idea of “if you really want to know something, teach it.” Exploring this level through the lens of “if you were to teach Reiki 1, 2, or 3, how would you do so?” helps students to learn the material in a deeper way.

Students are certified after they complete the course, but I encourage ongoing practice, auditing of any classes I teach, and I am in process of creating some guided practice journals for both Levels 2 and 3. In-person Level 3 is usually a 1-day in person course from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. with a lunch break; however, I give handouts ahead of time, as well as exercises and future auditing opportunities. For private correspondence training, I offer six 1-hour long phone sessions, plus handouts, homework and practice requirements. About half my Level 3 students already received Level 3 training from a different Reiki Master Teacher, but take the training from me so that they feel much better prepared to train others.

I’ve trained many dozens of Reiki Master Teachers over the years, many who had other teachers before me, so I know that this level varies widely, both in cost and scope. I have had some students who did a year-long apprenticeship with different teachers for thousands of dollars, but in the end, they did not begin teaching on their own until training with me. I teach the Usui lineage with the Tibetan symbols, since that’s how I learned, and I find value in the Tibetan symbols. I try to strike a balance between thoroughness, some self-direction, and lower cost than a formal apprenticeship would require. Hopefully that answers your question.

Thank you for this valuable information. I guess my main question is based on what my current Reiki Master Teacher is implying and that is that I have to go thru some kind of crisis in my life in order to be attuned to Master Teacher. Is this normal with all Usui practices?

No, I wouldn’t say it’s a normal requirement. The Initiation Attunements are like telling the Universe, “I’m ready for the next level. I’m committed to this next level.” If you don’t have resistance, then things just open up in a natural way. Sometimes people have resistance, or old things come up that make the need for change obvious. It can occur before or after initiation, and many times initiation to Level 3 is more of a confirmation of being on path. I do not require anyone to have a crisis in order to be initiated. Embracing ones path usually helps to avoid crises, or at least make the most of them if they arrive anyway. 🙂

Applying to take Reiki Master Teacher training through me requires at least Reiki Level 2 Certification, plus some back and forth emailing to make sure I feel you’re ready and that we’re a good student-teacher fit.
