ONLINE & PHONE REIKI CONTINUING EDUCATION –
TALKING REIKI RECORDED WEBINAR SERIES
I will soon start a series of MAINSTREAMING REIKI webinars to share my 25 years of professional Reiki experience so that you can hone your professional skills and build your Reiki healing practice. Please click here to be informed as these are scheduled.
REIKI BEST PRACTICES RECORDED WEBINARS
My REIKI BEST PRACTICES webinar series offers continuing education and support to Reiki practitioners of any and all lineages and practice styles, particularly those who want to bring Reiki practice to the mainstream public. My interest is never to correct anyone’s Reiki technique — we all have to find our own way in that department — but rather to support practitioners who want to mainstream Reiki by helping them develop the professional skills needed to make a credible Reiki presentation, one that is appropriate for health care and the mainstream public, without in any way diluting the spiritual essence of the practice. Once you’ve registered for a webinar, you’ll be able to access it online any time you want, as often as you want.
7 STEPS to SUCCESSFUL PUBLIC REIKI EVENTS
Public Reiki events are a powerful way to mainstream Reiki practice, creating an opportunity to step out in your community and share Reiki treatment with people who might not otherwise know about it. But it is critical that your event be very professional. This webinar gives you what I’ve learned in 20 years of organizing events in a wide range of venues, so that you can function as a seasoned professional starting with your very first mainstream event.
INTRODUCTION to MEDICAL REIKI
An important part of mainstreaming Reiki is bringing the practice into conventional health care. The 4-day Medical Reiki intensive gives the most in-depth training for healthcare collaboration, but if you can’t make the in-person intensive, this recorded training will get you started. It hits the high points so you can improve your communication and strategy. You also receive a 4-phase program proposal that you can customize to fit your needs. Access the recording at your convenience, as many times as you like. Click for Intro to Medical Reiki details.
YOUR REIKI WEBSITE: What You Need to Know
Mainstreaming Reiki starts with a website that represents the benefits of Reiki practice with credibility and professionalism. Do you need a website but don’t know where to start? Or do you have a site that’s not working for you, and you don’t know how to fix it? Let’s get you out of feeling overwhelmed and into a website that credibly showcases Reiki — and you — to the mainstream public. Click Website Webinar for more details.
ONE-TO-ONE REIKI MENTORING
We’ll discuss any questions you have about your Reiki practice, whether it’s how to deepen your daily self-treatment experience, mainstream your professional Reiki practice, or develop your business. We can also review your website or communication materials. I’ll call or skype you at a prearranged time. $150 for a focused 45-minute consult. Email me to schedule. You can pay the fee using Paypal.

Have you ever walked away from a client, or a friend, suspecting you “picked up” something you’d rather not have? This happens all too often, but you aren’t helpless. We’ll take a grounded, no-nonsense, empowering look at:
- Why and how negative transference happens,
- Where you are particularly vulnerable,
- What you can do to prevent it, and
- How you can rebalance yourself once it’s happened.
This workshop is open to everyone, health care professionals, and the public, whether or not you practice Reiki, because negative transference can happen to anyone.
The next Spiritual Self-Protection class is June 28 at the New York Open Center.
Do you already practice Reiki at any level—First Degree, Second Degree or Reiki master?
Perhaps you are:
- a Reiki student who wants to deepen your relationship with Reiki,
- a Reiki practitioner who wants to become a Reiki professional, or a
- a Reiki professional who wants to enhance your professional skills, including the ability to collaborate in conventional health care?
If so, there are a number of ways in which I can help you deepen your personal practice and develop skills to mainstream Reiki practice, whether you live here in the New York City area or elsewhere. All of the gatherings described below are appropriate for you regardless your level of training, amount of experience, or practice style.
The JCC Reiki Clinic takes place on the first Thursday of each month (excluding holidays). Here you will be part of a diverse group of Reiki practitioners offering table treatments in a supervised public setting. This is an opportunity for you to increase your treatment experience, participate in a mainstream Reiki event, and to make Reiki buddies. Every practitioner also receives a treatment, and the practitioners gather at the end of the clinic for sharing, discussion, and chocolate (really!).
JCC Reiki Clinic for practitioners and the public
First Thursdays of the month, May 2, June 6, etc. No clinic July 4.
The JCC in Manhattan
334 Amsterdam Ave @ West 76th Street
New York, NY 10023
Pre-registration guarantees your space, but you are also welcome to take your chances and show up. Practitioners who have not pre-registered need to arrive early to allow time to register and be downstairs for orientation at 6:20 PM and plan to stay until we finish by 9:15 PM. You can register by clicking here (then search Reiki and/or Pamela Miles), or by calling 646-505-5708.
The public is invited to receive half-hour Reiki treatments, usually from two practitioners, depending on attendance. Whether you have never experienced Reiki and would like to give it a try, or you are looking for a monthly habit to support your well-being, you are welcome. And if you are a Reiki practitioner who would like to introduce your friends to Reiki, but you are not comfortable giving them treatment on your own, know that this is a safe environment where your friends will be well cared for.
There is a $20 fee for all participants, both practitioners and people coming for treatment only. You can also register by phone 646.505.5708. If you are a Reiki practitioner, please email me that you are coming.

Do not anger
Do not worry
Be kind to others
– as translated by Japanese Reiki master, Hyakuten Inamoto
Although practitioners at any level of training are welcome, in many ways this class is a continuation of First degree, the part of First degree practice that will make more sense once you have experience in self-practice.
Mikao Usui, the founder of the Reiki lineage, referred to the Precepts as “the secret of inviting happiness through many blessings, the spiritual medicine for all illness.” included them in daily practice. Too often overlooked today, the Precepts help you create a bridge between how you actually experience life to how you want to experience it.
In this class, you will feel the support of the Reiki Precepts and learn how to access them in daily life. Here’s what the participants said about their experience when Susan Mitchell and I led a one-day retreat on this material:
“You created a safe, nurturing environment for exploration.”
“Just amazingly wonderful and inspiring.”
“Peaceful, nourishing, and stimulating, the kind of Reiki community I long for.”
“The retreat deepened my understanding of the precepts; I had just been touching the surface.”
“I feel empowered to continue contemplating the precepts in daily life.”
“This exploration created a significant deepening in my practice, so much so that friends noticed a difference when we shared treatment.”
I offer the following REIKI CONTINUING EDUCATION CLASSES for Reiki students at any level or lineage to prepare for professional practice and Reiki professionals to enhance their skills. Classes are offered in person in New York City and other locations, and by teleclass/webinar. You can click here to register for any class.
Have you ever felt frustrated trying to explain Reiki, especially in mainstream language? Are you enthusiastic about your practice but often see people’s eyes glaze over when you try to share it? Could you use some tips how to communicate more effectively and feel more professional?
Reiki is easy to practice and easy to appreciate, but not so easy to talk about, even for experienced practitioners. Many people who would be interested in the benefits of Reiki treatment are turned off by the way Reiki is explained to them. Perhaps you’ve experienced this firsthand.
You can learn how to speak clearly about Reiki and the benefits you experience. Communicating skillfully helps others recognize how Reiki might help them, and deepens your personal practice.
You will leave this event with greater clarity about your Reiki practice, and strategies to communicate Reiki more effectively to the mainstream public and health care professionals.

This class is currently only available as a recorded webinar, as listed above.
In this class, I offer you what I’ve learned over 20 years of organizing events. Public Reiki events are a service to the public and to the Reiki community. When you organize events, you introduce Reiki to new audiences, create Reiki community, and give Reiki students and practitioners an opportunity to develop their clinical skills. This class gives you what you need to create a successful public Reiki event in which everyone feels supported—staff, clients and YOU.
Pamela Miles organizes 50 Reiki practitioners for our yearly Spa Day for Women with Cancer. The Reiki room is always the hands-down favorite for our Spa Day participants. Many of the women have never heard of Reiki and are surprised at how wonderful they feel receiving Reiki treatment. The person responsible for creating this magic is Pamela Miles. She selects, trains and is present at the Spa Day to supervise the Reiki room. As a result, no matter which practitioners participants go to, they receive the same beautifully sequenced session.
