Advanced Reiki Training (ART) is offers  advanced techniques to enhance your Reiki practices. It is the prerequisite for Reiki III/Master Teacher.

Along with a teaching & appreciation for the significance of the Usui DKMO symbol, to a great degree, the focus of my Reiki ART teaching is an introduction to the Antakarana which is a principle embedded in the sacred geometry of the Merkaba that we build with every step on our path of Awakening, as a stairway to heaven, a bridge for accessing higher realms of conscious existence, guides, angels, higher self and divine essence. Just talking about this raises one's vibration very high and helps to access higher realms of being. This describes the essence of my personal Reiki practice and is the main focus of this class.

In addition to this we will build a reiki crystal grid and empower it with sacred service to send Reiki continually or as programed. We will practice a Reiki qigong movement to attract & enhance vital energy and purify our energy channels and I will demonstrate an aura cleansing technique used in reiki healing.

Expected Outcomes : 

The Reiki Grid—using Crystals to send Reiki continuously
The Usui Master Symbol—connecting directly with your essential being as your divine nature
Guided Meditation to prepare for attunement
Advanced Reiki Attunement
Moving Meditation—bringing Reiki into the body; clearing the mind; grounding
Symbol Work—hands on practice with the Usui Master Symbol
Aura Balancing technique—Demonstration and practice

LEVEL III- Master/Teacher

Shinpiden is the Japanese word for ‘mystery teachings’ and is aimed at Level ART practitioners who wish to continue their personal journey, a journey that is ongoing long after you receive your teacher empowerment symbols. It is therefore not just about being empowered to pass on Reiki attunements but is suitable for those who wish to develop their personal Reiki practice.

A Practitioner becomes a Master when they have come far enough along in their development whereby troublesome lifestyle habits and limiting belief systems are taking less and less time and energy away from living a fully conscious life. A Master has taken the responsibility to become a Master of themselves. It is not a designation used for ego inflation or to manipulate others. The mastery is in dealing with oneself so that one is able to stay in his or her own energy and not interfere with the path of another being. A Reiki Master is also able to attune others and pass on their knowledge regarding the system of Reiki.

Training Includes:

  • Manual which may be used for their own teaching purposes
  • Instruction, review and practice in Shoden, Okuden and Shinpiden traditional Japanese techniques
  • Usui Reiki Ryoho attunement to Master/Shinpiden level
  • How to perform giving attunements
  • Ethics as a Reiki Master
  • Certification permitting you to teach and initiate into Usui Reiki


  • A deep sense of tranquility
  • Begin to help others professionally by teaching and passing on attunements
  • Confidence as a teacher and practitioner
  • Progress further along your spiritual path

The Reiki Precepts:

Just for today do not worry
Just for today do not anger
Honour your parents, teachers and elders
Earn your living honestly
Show gratitude to every living thing

These precepts are guidelines that represent some of the beneficial effects that Reiki can produce in your life if you work with the energy regularly. They also represent a set of principles that we need to follow on our journey of self healing and self development with Reiki.  What do these principles mean to you? How can you apply them to your life?
