In receiving initiation into the Usui System of Natural Healing, we are joining a long line of serious practitioners who have validated hands on healing for self-evolution and relieving the suffering of others.  Each master will structure h/her class to suit their teaching methods.  Even so, the URF requires that all members incorporate the following criterion when teaching the traditional Usui Shiki Ryoho system of natural healing.

Please Note: We have gone to great lengths to reincorporate the techniques originally taught by Dr. Mikao Usui.  Thus bringing our method as close to the original Usui Reiki Ryoho system as possible.  Nonetheless, this is an ongoing process, and the information below may change from time-to-time.

Shoden or Beginning Level
The first level of Reiki is primarily for the self.  It is an experimental journey into awareness of the world of energy, both internal and external.  The objective is to discover ways in which the student can clear their personal vessel and become a clear and open channel for the universal life force energy flow through them.  This journey begins by being opened to the flow of this energy through the initiation or attunement process.  The Reiki I training consists of:

  • The history of Reiki (a verbal introduction giving the history of Reiki methods and practices).

  • What Reiki is and how it works.

  • The five ethical principles of Reiki.

  • The Reiki I attunements (traditionally there are four, although some masters may give two or even just one).

  • Demonstration and practice time to give complete Reiki treatments to others and oneself:

    1. self treatment (full treatment)

    2. treatment of others (full treatment)

    3. treatment of others (short treatment)

    4. treatment of injury and what to do in emergencies

    5. information on how to treat animals, plants, and your environment

  • Japanese Reiki techniques:

    1. Gassho meditation

    2. Joshin Kokyuu-Ho

    3. Reiji

    4. Kenyoku

    5. Byosen Scanning

  • Additional exercises or meditations, at the discretion of the teacher.

  • Questions, answers, and sharing.

The class is a combination of lecture, discussion and experience. Practice time includes giving and receiving a complete Reiki treatment using all the hand positions, the self -treatment, and practice using all the Japanese Reiki Techniques mentioned above.

While practice takes place during the class, it is expected that you will set aside additional time to practice after the class is over. Please commit to this additional time which should be one evening a week for several weeks, or its equivalent, to practice Reiki with one, or more, people from your Reiki class or with members of your family or friends. This additional practice is necessary to gain the experience and confidence you need to fully utilize the Reiki training.

Okuden or Inner Teaching
After the integration period of 21 days that follows the first degree initiations students have usually decided whether they wish to continue to gain more skills and understanding in Reiki.  In traditional Reiki a period of three months is required before the student is able to continue onto second degree.  This is to allow all the changes that take place in the student's field after the first level time to rebalance and be fully integrated.  However, we are all different and this period is, therefore, merely a guideline.  Normally, the student and master will determine the correct time to move on to the second degree level.  The Reiki II training consists of:

  • A description of all symbols (or "Golden Keys"), including how to draw them, what they mean, and how to use them.

  • The Reiki II attunement.

  • Practice time in class to use the symbols.

  • Japanese Reiki techniques:

    1. Enkaku chiryo

    2. Koki-Ho

    3. Shu chu Reiki

    4. Gyoshi-Ho

  • Additional exercises or meditations, at the discretion of the teacher.

  • Questions and sharing.

Advanced Reiki Training (ART) or Master Practitioner Level
The master practitioner level is designed for those people who wish to fully embrace the principles of Reiki into their lives.

  • A description of the Usui master symbol, including how to draw it, what it means, and how to use it.

  • The Reiki 3A master practitioner attunement.

  • Practice time in class using the symbol for treatments.

  • Additional exercises, techniques, and meditations at the teachers discretion.

  • Questions and sharing.

  • Fee of $1000.00 with a $500 non-refundable deposit.

Shinpiden or Mastery Teaching
The mastery teaching is designed for those people who wish to fully embrace the principles of Reiki into their lives, and teach others these principles.

Becoming a Reiki Master is a serious step that requires definite preparation.  There are certain criteria that a student will have to fulfill in order to participate in the master training.  These criteria differ depending on which master you choose, but essentially follow similar guidelines.  The Utah Reiki Foundation looks for people who have the attributes to make a sympathetic teacher and have embraced the principles of the teachings into their own life.  They should have a good understanding of Reiki, practice regularly, and posses the courage and eagerness to continue growing.

At this level, the student teacher relationship becomes very close.  Often the student will work alongside the master on a one-to-one basis for a year or more, providing the perfect opportunity to learn the skills necessary to work with groups and pass on the teachings.  The Reiki 3B training consists of:

  • A talk about what it means to be a Reiki master including the responsibilities involved.

  • The Reiki 3B master teacher attunement.

  • Demonstrations that carefully show how attunements for each Reiki level are given.

  • Practice time in class giving each of the attunements.

  • Discussion on what subjects to teach and time answering questions.

  • Additional exercises, techniques, and meditations, at the teacher's discretion.

  • Questions and sharing.

  • Prerequisite: ART and acceptance for training by the Master Teacher.
  • Cost: $2500 - Payment options are available.
  • Deposit: $1250 non-refundable deposit with registration.
  • Registration: Advanced Registration is required either by telephone or email.

Note: Deposit is deducted from the original cost of the class.

Our Reiki classes and training programs are taught according to the guidelines of the International Reiki Foundation, and certificates are awarded for completion of training by the IRF's international headquarters.
