Reiki Degree Classes
Become a conscious manifester of your life
Whether as a Shoden Healer who uses Reiki as a personal meditation and stress relief tool or as Shihan, sharing your wisdom and knowledge, The Dojo is available to explore the wonder of this miraculous magical energy. Our focus is to create confident practitioners, at whatever level you choose. We offer an extensive training program that provides access to the teachers, regular attunement, scheduled training classes including practice circles and the opportunity to get into the Reiki room for real time sessions. Regardless of how far you go in your training, the first and foremost goal of Reiki is to achieve enlightenment. Read a little more here about the practice of being a Reiki healer.
Attunement: You be initiated into Reiki by means of "Reiju" or attunements. These are short meditations during which the energy of Reiki is given to you through your crown and into your chakra system. Each attunement you receive boosts your Reiki energy. We encourage you to get them as often as possible.
Note that even those who are not students or Reiki can get an open attunement.
Beginning with the first class, new members are introduced to the philosophy that underlies Saito Komyo Reiki practice. Special care is taken to ensure that new students receive personalized attention as they take their first steps on the path of enlightenment through Reiki. Mastery and continued study is dependent upon a strong foundation, therefore beginners are carefully guided as they begin their path of self healing, learning how to understand their own gifts and relate to the perfection in their life.
Shoden Degree - Self Healing
In this 2 Day class, you will undergo a transformation in your understanding and in your perception of who you are and what you are doing here. It is an intense two days filled with interaction and meditation. You will learn a basic knowledge of Reiki history, learn tools of Reiki Ryoho (hands-on healing art) for self healing and a mediation practice for you to use each day. You will receive one shirushi (symbol) and four attunments.
This 2 day course covers a lot of material. The most important factor in this degree is the willingness on the part of the student to dedicating themselves to changing their habits to new ones. By learning the tools for Reiki meditation and healing and committing to daily practice, a first degree student will gain success.

Okuden Degree - Inner Teacher
At this level, we gain access to the spiritual aspects of Reiki. We go within again to become masters of ourselves, to explore our own wisdom and discover our journey to enlightenment. Practitioners who decide to take Okuden will know when they are called to do so. Remember it is not a matter of advancement but one of deepening our journey to Satori.
You will enter the inner teaching of Reiki. You will learn to focus on your spiritual cultivation and growth. With two attunments, you will learn the final Shirushi and open to your own spiritual voice, your own inner teacher.
Okuden is intended for those students who would like to deepen their study of Reiki as a spiritual practice and therefore increase their own inner peace and harmony. It is also for those who want to consider Shinpiden Degree. It is a one day class, but a student is recommended to refresh this course and consult with teachers individually after this training.
Class time: 6 hours Fee $550 Refresher $100
Shinpiden Degree - Teaching Others
A small percentage of Reiki Practitioners become ready to teach and share their life in Reiki on a continuous basis. An Okuden student may apply for Teacher Training by submitting an essay describing their Reiki journey and what they have learned to share as teacher.
At this point, the student will undertake training to teach classes, run their own Dojo, assess students, work with young practitoners inside sessions and counsel both clients and students through their journey. This is yet another step along the path to enlightenment as we become student again with everyone we teach.
One day class with continued training for at least one year. Student teacher will sit in on classes for all degrees and take part as they grow their teaching skills. You will learn to do attunements right away and become available to practice this art here with students.
