Energy Healing / Reiki 1 / Reiki 2 / Reiki 3A - Advanced Course

This course is a 16 week course, to be held once a week, evenings 6:00pm - 9:30pm, or Saturdays / Sundays ( 2 days a month for 4 months). You can do a Reiki course over a few days, but in all honesty, without dismissing the validity of these courses, you literally just learn Reiki and mostly the theory. From my personal experience, there is so much more to it. Being a Reiki practitioner involves so much more than just doing the session. This course includes personal growth and development and spiritual knowledge that I think is fundamental to learn. It also incorporates a minimum of
50% practical application. I have designed this course to set you up as best as possible with the confidence you need to work on, not just yourselves, but others too. You will come out of this course with a SAQA approved qualification as an Advanced Reiki Practitioner, which will allow you to practice in South Africa and Internationally.

I have designed my course to allow for more practical experience than most other courses offer. Setting out as a Reiki Practitioner takes confidence, and I want to set up my students with as much confidence as possible to go out and practice. I do personally believe that sufficient time should be given to practical work, and this is often rushed over in the shorter courses, as not everyone is theory driven, and it is through practical application that techniques fix themselves into our minds.

Cost is inclusive of all three levels of Reiki / 16 weeks  R7200

(R800 deposit and R1600 x 4 months - or I am very happy to help if you need a longer payment plan)

Deciding on what course is best for you can be confusing and overwhelming - here are a few things to consider:

Are you wanting to learn reiki to just practice on yourself and family?If your answer to that is yes, then Reiki 1 is sufficient. However, take into consideration that this may change at a later stage, in which case doing a course that offers up to professional practitioner, may be more benificial.

If you are wanting to practice reiki professionally, make sure the course you choose offers plenty of opportunity for practical lessons. While the techniques are quickly learned, becoming proficient takes time. Reiki is self revealing, so depth and insight only comes though intensive practicing.

  • Make enquiries to a number of teachers

  • Ask how many class contact/face to face hours there are

  • Are there any additional hours required to be put in?

  • Do they provide you with a manual?

  • Do you have to do case studies (i.e. treatments), and if so how many?

  • How long have they been practising Reiki?

  • How long have they been teaching Reiki?

  • How often do they teach?

  • How do they personally use Reiki?

  • What is their lineage? 

  • Do they still have an active practice where they see clients?

  • Where are their classes held and is there parking nearby?

  • Are they a member of a professional Reiki organisation, if so which one?

  • Are there any things which you will need to purchase prior to training?

  • What are the requirements if any, for certification at the end of the course?

  • Do they have past students that you can openly talk to that would give you an honest assessment of the course? Do they have public reviews of their courses?

  • Are they willing to meet with you . have a phone conversation before you make a decision. By talking to the teacher you will gain some insight about them, and when you think you have found the right teacher it may be a good idea to go to them for a Reiki treatment before training.

  • Do they offer on-going mentoring/support?

  • Will they openly support you in being a successful Reiki practitioner or master or master teacher? 

  • Do they mentor & support prospective Reiki Master Teachers? This is an important one if you would like to go as far as Masters. There are certain Reiki schools that will not teach beyond Advanced, as they do not want other Reiki teachers encroaching on their "turf". If they say they will mentor you as a prospective teacher no matter where you live, if you so desire, please get it in writing first.

  • What are the specific things you will be able to do after taking the training?

  • Do they have a positive respectful attitude toward other Reiki practitioners and masters, regardless of lineage or affiliation?
