Training at The Dojo
The Training Program at The Dojo is the most extensive Reiki Training program in Canada. Our Okuden Practitioners have had over 1000 hours of training with Teachers and Clients, plus their own self practice which will amount to thousands more.
It is the intention of Shihan Robert and Lorie Saito to help you be one of the best Reiki Practitioners available. To teach you to become a healer who understand the true power of Reiki and who takes seriously your committment to whole healing for yourself and your clients.
When you receive your certification from The Dojo, you will be guaranteed to have the best Reiki training available.
After each Degree Class, the extended training offered covers topics that will arise as you progress through your Reiki journey. Energy sharing circles, discussion groups and occassional retreats offer you a chance to explore how Reiki can be used in all areas of life, not just in the treatment room.
Explore the world of Reiki in a safe space with experienced, highly trained instructors who are committed to creating exceptional Reiki Practitioners. Start with the two day Shoden (1st) Degree class and discover the fascinating world that is going on inside of you....then enjoy the journey. Each Degree gives you a deeper understanding of how Reiki works, what its powers are and how to share that with others.
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.
Most Reiki training classes are limited to the weekend class with occassional access to the teacher through Reiki practice circles.
The Dojo is different.
Our entire focus is to be available to extend your training to whatever degree you choose. We do not assume that everyone wants to be a teacher. In session and in classroom, your training is designed to answer your questions, cover topics that will be part of your energy world for life, give you practice in real time sessions and provide hours of training to understand the world of energy.
At The Dojo, we know that Reiki and Meditation open up the doorway to your inner world. And the world of inner space can be both fascinating and a little scary when you first dive in. There are many paths to the same destination, not at all limited to Meditation and Reiki. We have explored some of those as well along our journey, a few more deeply than others.
"Chakra' is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel. It refers to a series of energy centers in our bodies that receive and transmit energy in the world around us. There are 8 core chakras we work with in Reiki Ryoho, although working with the Chakras was not part of Usui Sensei's system. We become aware of them through our connection firstly to colors, to the rainbow and then through the feelings we have in our body.
Once you begin to meditate and seek your inner space, creating a sacred space for yourself becomes important. It is possible to find traditions from around the world to assist us in this journey.
Do your children have an attachment to rocks and crystals? Are your kids seeing Faeries? Do they have 'visitors' in their rooms? Can they 'see' your pain? Maybe even put their hands on it and it goes away? Does your child tell you your plants need water? Today's youth are connected to the world of energy at a different level and understand things we do not.
There is a strong community here at The Dojo. We gather for Meditation Circles and other special events, including Monthly Drumming Circles and Women's Wisdom gatherings.
The other side of energy is always part of the exploration. At The Dojo we use crystals, pendululms, essential oils, Tarot Cards, Birth Numbers and a few other tools and invite you to discover your gifts.
