Do you know you can learn traditional Reiki self care in an interactive online class at home?
Before we go into specifics of how you can learn Reiki online, let’s first get clear what Reiki is.
Reiki self care is a non-invasive, light touch practice that helps restore balance to your whole system. When you feel balanced, you feel better and you function better. You feel calmer, steadier, more confident, less anxious. And you make better choices, ones that truly support you and those around you.
When you feel balanced, your body’s self healing is optimized. Improved sleep and digestion are two commonly reported benefits of Reiki self care.
The balancing response to Reiki self care starts quickly. You might sleep better after your very first self practice. Or you might notice a difference in the way you feel about yourself and your life. Many people notice their relationships improve once they start practicing Reiki self care.
I have a new awareness of self that I did not expect. Taking care of myself has become more of a priority. Otherwise, I don’t like the way I feel. — Danielle Green
The best way to learn to practice Reiki is to be in the room with a qualified teacher and a small group of students. I teach at least one Reiki class a month in New York City and you are welcome to join me. Please keep reading if that’s not possible for you.
Why learn Reiki online?
I just confirmed that the best training happens when you’re in the room with a teacher and a small group of students, so why would you choose to learn Reiki in a teleconference? Really, who would choose less than the best?
Lots of people, actually, anyone for whom it’s simply not possible to be in the room with a qualified teacher and other students. Or people who already practice but want to deepen their experience and review the basics.
Not everyone can come to New York City and many can’t find a local qualified teacher with a class that fits their schedule. Some people need to learn Reiki at home for a variety of reasons, including childcare, environmental sensitivities, social anxiety, lack of mobility, and other special needs. I feel especially committed to serving parents, as your whole family benefits when you start feeling better, more vital, more patient, more in touch with your love in the moment.
As the wise saying goes: don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good. If you can’t get to an in-person Reiki class, the chance to learn Reiki at home with me in a live interactive teleconference setting is your next best option.
Thank you for a very wonderful class. Your teaching led me much deeper into my self practice. — Emma Duvefelt
Comprehensive Reiki self care online training
Learn Reiki self care online with me in an interactive, small group live training that is as close as possible to being here in the room together. The sessions will be recorded and available to everyone who registers and attends the live event to use for review. You’ll be able to ask questions during our live gatherings and also on the private page where you can review the recordings.
The focus of our live online training is your daily self care. You will learn a full protocol for daily self practice and modifications to practice as needed. We’ll practice together in our virtual Reiki room and you’ll practice at home.
The online Reiki training is organized similarly to my in-person classes: 3 sessions with time to practice at-home. Each session includes in-class practice and discussion, with ample time for all your questions.
You can attend the online sessions live using your computer, phone or device (check requirements here). Each session will be recorded and available for you to watch any time you want, as often as you want, for a year after the training starts.

What kind of Reiki training is this?
I’m so glad you asked! People often don’t realize there are currently many approaches to Reiki practice, some of which don’t trace back to Reiki founder Mikao Usui. This is old fashioned Reiki practice taught traditionally in a contemporary venue.
I practice and teach basic Reiki as it was brought from Japan in the 1930s by Reiki master Hawayo Takata and her Reiki master Chujiro Hayashi, who was a direct student of Reiki founder Mikao Usui.
That means you will learn authentic Reiki practice online at home: simple, accessible and very effective.
In the years following Takata’s death in December 1980, Americans made many changes to the practice, wrapping it in New Age trappings and adding unnecessary complications, usually without acknowledging what they have done. As a result, most people who think they practice as Takata taught actually do not.
Why study with me?
I’ve been practicing Reiki since 1986 and teaching since 1990. Although I came to Reiki practice as a meditation teacher with nearly 25 years of spiritual practice experience, I practiced four years before starting my yearlong Reiki master training.
Since then, I’ve devoted myself to bringing Reiki practice to the mainstream public and to conventional medicine. I’ve taught at Yale medical school (among others), and lectured at Harvard medical school and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and presented Reiki practice to Google and Unilever.
Each time I teach, I learn more from my students about what helps them learn Reiki practice more easily. I bring everything I’ve learned in three decades of teaching Reiki practice so you can learn traditional Reiki at home.
I teach the Reiki practice I learned in 1986. I have practiced Reiki self treatment every day since I learned to practice.
What’s in the online Reiki self care class?
This training focuses on empowering your Reiki self practice. We’ll discuss the how, when, where and why of Reiki practice, especially self practice, and address your questions.
We’ll practice together in class and between our sessions, you’ll self practice at home on your own. The goal is for you to end the class feeling confident in your ability to practice Reiki self care, confident in the benefits Reiki practice offers, and motivated to continue your daily self practice.
In our first live session, you’ll learn how to practice Reiki self care. You’ll actually start practicing self Reiki about an hour after we convene. Most people notice some benefit from their very first self-practice. I’ll guide you what to look for and discuss how Reiki helps you heal.
After our first session, you’ll practice at home at least twice before we meet again the next day. You’ll share your experience practicing at home. We’ll discuss your questions and I’ll weave in relevant information. We’ll also practice together in the second and third sessions.
This online Reiki class is live and interactive. You’ll get the most by simply being present, no note-taking. Remember, you’ll have unlimited access to the recordings for a year to review. Note, the recordings are available only to those who attend the live sessions. The recordings are for review purposes only, not to replace our live interaction.
Each online Reiki class I offer is unique because each class is a co-creation by me and the people in the class. You’ll learn Reiki at home and you’ll learn with other students. This is important because we all learn from one another. All trainings include discussion of spirituality, science, history, safety, combining Reiki with conventional medicine, and the Reiki Precepts, but different groups go more in-depth in some areas than in others.
How is this training different than in-person training?
Given that there are no agreed-upon standards whatsoever for Reiki practice and training, how this training differs from in-person training depends on the teacher and how he/she teaches.
Some teachers don’t understand the difference between teaching and giving information. Their classes are short (sometimes as short as 90 minutes), allowing no time for in-class practice. Disappointed students report being given a manual and initiation, and sent on their way. That’s one reason why I offer these trainings.
Like the teleconference Reiki Self Care trainings, my in-person trainings are thorough, offered in 3 sessions with follow-up.
When we are all in the room together, we practice Reiki on one another as well as self-practice. In the teleconference training, we obviously cannot practice on one another. That’s the only difference between the two. That’s why I refer to the online trainings as Reiki Self Care. In the teleconference training, you’ll learn everything you need to know to practice self Reiki, by practicing self Reiki together in class, practicing at home, and through the information and perspective I’ll share during our discussions.

A few details to be mindful of
All sessions start promptly; ending time is approximate. You will begin practicing Reiki on yourself during the first session. Plan to attend all sessions in their entirety. Remember this is a teleconference so be prepared to share your camera so we can all see one another. Check your system here.
If you are not in the Eastern US time zone, it’s up to you to confirm what time the sessions are offered where you are. You’ll want to be with us live so we can practice together and you can ask questions. And only those who are with us for the live sessions can review the recordings.
Please arrange to be in a quiet room by yourself and log-in at least 5 minutes before each session starts.
