Reiki is an ancient system of channeling life force energy into a gentle, harmless, natural system of healing, balancing, energizing and relaxation. You can experience Reiki through a treatment or you can take a class so that you can become proficient in administering Reiki to yourself, your friends and family and clients. It is recommended to experience at least one Reiki treatment prior to taking a Reiki class. Reiki Master, Pam Allen-LeBlanc of Hidden Brook decided to study under world renowned Reiki Master, William Rand in Glastonbury England and received her Master attunement in the inner circle of Stonehenge. The Reiki Master passes on their lineage to Reiki students, and she felt this would link both she and her students to a very strong Reiki lineage.
Reiki 3 (Shinpiden) or Advanced Reiki Training introduces a student to the Master symbol, allowing the student to become a Master Healer. It is recommended that a student wait at least 6 months between level 2 and level 3 training. Cost of the class is $320. plus $20 for William Rand’s detailed level 3 & Master’s Reiki manual.
Before you attend a class:
I ask you to bring a journal to the class. Something nice and possibly new – that you like writing in – if you wish to signify a new beginning with a new journal. Reiki works in such a wonderful but gentle way that although it changes your life a day at a time, it’s a great idea to try and chart your progress and to begin with the class.
The class includes lunch. Please contact me with any food allergies or preferences . I’ll likely be serving a hearty vegetarian soup, a fresh bread, fruit and cheeses. Fruit, herbal teas and fresh water will be available throughout the day. As energies shift, we tend to be really hungry – and thirsty!
The class will run from 9:00am – 4:30pm.
In the original Reiki ideals, Dr. Usui says that Reiki is “The secret art of inviting happiness” and “The miraculous medicine of all diseases”. It is known as a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It was discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 1900’s. Reiki combines Rei or Spiritual Wisdom with Ki or Life Energy – with some amazing results. Reiki can never cause harm. It never depletes your energy. Anyone can learn it. And once you have been attuned, whether you choose to use it or not, it will be with you for the rest of your life.
Reiki is not taught in the way other healing techniques are taught. The ability is transferred to the student by the Reiki Master during an attunement process. During the attunement, the Rei or God Consciousness makes adjustments in the student’s chakras and energy pathways and links the student to the Reiki source. An attunement is very powerful energetically, and from the moment you sign up for this class, your energy will start to shift and move toward this higher frequency. Sometimes, when this happens, the shift can be uncomfortable and we can even become physically ill prior to the class as the body begins to shift and shed illness and energy that it no longer needs and move to the higher, healing frequency. Please do your best to get to that first class anyway. You will find that the illness is short lived. And the Reiki class and attunement well worth it!
You can do a few things to help the attunement go “deeper” into your consciousness if you wish. This is not necessary – but does facilitate a more powerful attunement if you choose to observe the guidelines. Take 2-3 days prior to the class as a technology free time if possible. Refrain from computer and TV use and do not listen to the news or read the newspaper. If you can eat whole foods and limit caffeine and alcohol too, it is recommended. And if you really want to detox prior to the weekend, Mrs. Takata (who brought Reiki to North America) has a juice blend she mixes up and drinks – with one 2” beet, 1 Tbsp watercress, 2 stalks of celery, 1 med. Carrot and 2 cups purified or spring water. If you have Reiki already – you can send Reiki into this mixture prior to chopping it at high speed in a blender. This blend is supposed to purify the blood and detoxify the liver, gallbladder and lungs – but caution should be used with it as it is a powerful detoxifier. My Reiki Master, William Lee Rand recommends drinking small amounts and waiting for an hour or more to see how your body responds to it. I drink this mixture occasionally – and it is powerful. I can generally only drink about 1/3 of the mixture per day.
Just a quick note on how to get here. If you are coming from Fredericton, drive out the Killarney Road until it meets Route 8. Turn left or North toward Stanley, Boistown, Doaktown and stay on Route 8 until you reach the Durham Bridge. Cross the bridge. The road comes to a V or Y – take the left road. You will pass a small school called Nashwaak Valley Elementary School. The Upper Durham Road is the first road to your right and is just after the elementary school. This is a farm, and there are dogs, cats, turkeys, chickens, horses – pretty much everywhere. Well, the horses are usually in the field, but the birds, dogs, cats and often children are free range. So hopefully no-one has any allergies. Most of the hair will be vacuumed up – but for those with sensitive allergies, I just like to mention the menagerie to ensure no-one is uncomfortable during the course. Although the dogs are outside, the cats sometimes decide to join us. They are very intuitive with the energy.
I look forward to sharing the gift of Reiki with you!
