Why Study Reiki with Me?

I’ve been practicing Reiki since 1986 and teaching since 1990. I came to Reiki practice as a meditation teacher with nearly 25 years of spiritual practice experience, and practiced four years before starting my yearlong Reiki master training. Since then, I’ve devoted myself to bringing Reiki practice to the mainstream public (people like you!) and to conventional medicine. I’ve taught at Yale medical school (among others), 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 self practice at home. Let me repeat: I teach the Reiki practice I learned in 1986, with a focus on daily self care. I’ve practiced Reiki self treatment every day since I first learned to practice.

Why Learn Reiki Online?

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 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).

I just confirmed 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 videoconference? 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, among 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 videoconference setting is your next best option.

Discussion / Q & A

There will be ample time for your questions.

Why Learn Reiki Online?

After our first session, you’ll practice at home at least twice before we meet again in the next day or so. In our second and third sessions, you’ll share your experience practicing at home. We’ll discuss your questions and I’ll weave in relevant information so our time together stays relaxed and conversational. 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. However, it’s up to you if you want to jot anything down when we take a break. 

Each Reiki training I offer is unique in that it is a co-creation by me and that particular group of people. You’ll learn Reiki practice in your home while learning with other students. That’s important because we all learn from one another. 

While each training is customized to the attendees, all include a discussion of spirituality, science, Reiki history, safety, combining Reiki with conventional medicine, and the Reiki Precepts. Each group is unique and different groups go more in-depth in some areas than in others. This is your class.

A unique quality of videoconference training is that we connect across the barrier of distance. The participants in a one class spanned 10 time zones, some starting their day while others were ending theirs. That highlighted the timelessness of our self practice, how it is always useful, valuable, and needed.

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

“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.”

– Pamela Miles

How is this training different than in-person training?

The only way in which this training differs from my in-person trainings is that, as we are not in a room together, we cannot practice on one another. That’s why I refer to the videoconference trainings as Reiki Self Care. In the videoconference 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. 

That said, the foundation of both my online and in-person trainings is daily self practice. Both videoconference and in-person trainings are thorough and I provide follow-up. 

I cannot compare my trainings to that offered elsewhere because there are no agreed-upon standards whatsoever for Reiki practice and training. Please do your homework so you can make an informed choice about what Reiki training will be most impactful to you.

For example, some Reiki teachers don’t understand the difference between teaching and giving information. Their classes are short (maybe as short as 90 minutes), allowing no time for in-class practice. Disappointed students often report being handed a manual and given an initiation, then sent on their way with no continuing support.

Daily self practice is often completely overlooked, or suggested for only 3 weeks. That’s unfortunate because we need Reiki self practice everyday. Even a little bit of Reiki self care can bring you back to yourself and improve your day.

While I am a very traditional Reiki master in many ways, I decided in 2018 to offer videoconference trainings to make traditional Reiki training accessible to people who cannot find a local teacher/class that is meaningful to them and those restricted by health or lifestyle needs.

Traditional Reiki Training

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. I teach old-fashioned Reiki practice taught traditionally albeit in a contemporary venue.

I practice and teach basic Reiki as by Reiki master Hawayo Takata, who brought the practice from Japan in the 1930s with her Reiki master Chujiro Hayashi, a direct student of Reiki founder Mikao Usui.

That’s the practice I learned in 1986. That’s how I still practice. And that’s the practice I’ll teach you. 

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.Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.

“Reiki self care is a non-invasive, light touch practice that helps restore balance to your whole system. When you’re balanced, you feel better and you function better.”

– Pamela Miles

What is Reiki?

Reiki self care is a non-invasive, light touch practice that helps restore balance to your whole system. When you’re 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 and all systems start working better. Improved sleep and digestion are two frequently reported benefits of Reiki self care. The balancing response to Reiki self care starts quickly. You might even sleep better after your very first self practice. Or you might notice improvement in how you feel about yourself and your life. Many people notice relationships improve once they start practicing Reiki self care. 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. Not possible? Please keep reading.

Traditional Reiki Classes in New York City

Reiki trainingRESPECTING THE CURRENT NEED FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING: Traditional Reiki training in New York City is currently being given in a series of small group, live, interactive videoconferences to accommodate the need for social distancing. This enables you to start practicing Reiki Self Care and supporting your health and well-being as soon as possible. For those who are in the New York City area, we’ll have options for in-person practice once the pandemic has passed and it is safe to gather in-person. Your choice of traditional Reiki training could be one of the most important decisions in your life. Learn to practice traditional Reiki and you can quickly relieve pain, anxiety, insomnia, indigestion and other symptoms that are more troublesome when we are stressed and out of balance.

My Reiki self practice helps me be more loving in my relationships, trust life more, relax more and sleep better. — Marc Winn

Traditional First degree Reiki practice is easy to learn. Most people practice in bed, while falling asleep or awakening, so Reiki integrates easily into even the busiest lifestyle. Reiki self-practice might not be the only thing you need to feel better, but it will help you feel better and function better quickly. Once you feel happier and healthier, it’s much easier to meet life’s challenges, whether you are digging out from under, or building an empire — or somewhere between the two!
Thank you for your beautiful, incredibly effective Reiki training. I got so much out of your teachings. Since the training, I’ve been practicing self-Reiki nightly and it’s making a very big difference in both my work and my life—it’s quite amazing, actually. I’m calmer and more able to handle everyday stresses. My clients (and kids) have been more vocal (in a positive way), and I feel more confident about my work than I’ve ever felt. — Kym O’Neill

Reiki practice can transform your life even when life is difficult. Like during a pandemic…

Since my First degree Reiki training with Pamela Miles,  I have been practicing Reiki on myself every day. I did not expect to feel much difference from Reiki because I have already had spiritual and healing practices in my life for years. Yet since I learned to practice Reiki, I have slept better (a huge issue for me), felt more peaceful, been more patient with my oppositional child, and had much easier access to a sense of wellbeing and happiness — all this at perhaps the most stressful time in my life, with my husband in the hospital recovering from cancer. I practice Reiki on my husband in his hospital bed as well, but somehow I’m more surprised at the differences in my own well-being than at how he falls into a deep relaxation and light snoring sleep within the first five minutes of his Reiki session and has thus far avoided many harsh side effects of his treatment. This practice is life-affirming and life-changing. — Tara Greenway
I have been teaching Reiki since 1990 and offer at least one class a month in New York City. Sign up here and I’ll let you know as I schedule classes. In these classes, I teach traditional Reiki training. I teach the practice as it was taught by Hawayo Takata, the Reiki master who brought Reiki practice from Japan in the 1930s. That’s what I learned in 1986 and how I still practice, with no New Age embellishments. Can’t get to New York City?

Why traditional Reiki training matters

Do you know there are no standards for Reiki training or practice? That’s why it’s important for you to make an informed choice. I teach the practice as Reiki master Hawayo Takata brought it from Japan in the 1930s with her Reiki master Chujiro Hayashi, a direct student of Reiki lineage founder Mikao Usui. Reiki Classes: What’s Right for You, guides you to the information you need to choose a credible training with a qualified teacher. You are welcome in my New York City Reiki First degree classes even if you already practice. However, it’s important you approach the class as a beginner. If you do so, you’ll leave with greater clarity and a deeper practice experience. I also offer various Reiki continuing education classes.
Many thanks for your profound teachings. — Aileen Rosen
