Education Philosophy

Our philosophy:

Reiki Education and Research Institute supports the Holistic approach to life.  The Holistic health approach to healing and personal growth takes into account the whole person.  That means the physical being, the mental/ emotional being and the spiritual being.  Healing, therefore, is addressed to all levels and not just the physical symptomatology being experienced.  Balance of all areas of ones being are critical to the overall health and wellbeing.  We encourage all to look beyond the physical and examine all aspects of ones life as a whole when addressing illness or other challenges.

Holistic approach and the use of Reiki:

Reiki is an energy treatment method as well as a self-help tool that addresses ones being and existence on all of these levels.  It is a subtle yet powerful approach to improving the overall quality of life for everyone as well as effectively supporting the healing process of physical illnesses and emotional distress.  It is a very effective complementary treatment to traditional western medical practices and helps create a positive healing environment and mind-body connection.

Our education approach:

We believe that everyone should have at the very least Fundamental Reiki training.  Not only is it effective for the support of the healing process but is a valuable personal/spiritual development tool.  That is why our Reiki program is called Reiki Natural Healing and Personal Empowerment Program. We provide in-depth Reiki training of all levels and opportunities for students to experience healing during the educational process.  Our program is designed to allow students sufficient time to understand the concepts of healing the body, mind and spirit and to allow it to be absorbed in the subconscious mind making Reiki truly an integrated part of one’s approach to life.

The Reiki Natural Healing and Personal Empowerment Program:

The Reiki Natural Healing and Personal Empowerment Program are well structured programs aim at providing students a strong foundation in Dr. Usui’s Reiki method of Natural healing often referred to as Usui Reiki.  In addition, the instruction includes related support material, metaphysical topics and practical hands on experiential training in what we consider an Internship format.  Classes include lectures, group discussions, Reiki attunements, homework assignments, practical experience as well as extra curricular activities for continued learning.

  • Different from traditional Reiki classes taught in the West.
