Reiki is a practice of healing touch using stillness and connection to the flow of life energy. We offer Reiki sessions and Reiki classes.
Reiki is taught in both individual and group experience at the GW Center for Integrative Medicine. You may decide which type of learning experience is best for you.
Reiki Level One or First Degree
Reiki Level One is composed of two parts, learning Reiki for Self Care and leaning Reiki Treatment of Others. Reiki for Self Care is often best learned individually by registering as a patient at the GW CIM and receiving three individual sessions. You will receive a full body Reiki treatment, receive Reiki energy connection (called Reiju), receive instruction in the self care positions with Reiki, receive a manual for study and review, be asked to do 21 days of self care while journaling about that experience and return for a follow up third session which can be either receiving another full body Reiki treatment or learning to give Reiki to a friend or companion.
Reiki Level Two or Second Degree
Reiki Level Two is a deepening of the understanding of hands-on Reiki (local) through a transcendence of time and space. You will learn three Reiki symbols for use in distant (non-local) healing, receive Reiki energy connection (called Reiju), receive a workbook and explore exercises to expand your knowledge and practice of Reiki both local and non-local. It is suggested you have practiced Reiki Level One for three months before joining this class.
Candidates for Reiki Master, Master Teacher, and Reiki Fellowship are accepted through an interview process with Mara Benner.
