How to Choose a Reiki Teacher - 13/06/2014

So you’ve decided to learn Reiki? Wonderful! - but how do you decide where to go? Which Reiki teacher is best for you? Excellent question!

There are many Reiki teachers to choose from, so here are some helpful hints to make this decision easier for you.

  • Are they qualified to teach Reiki?
    Reiki teachers are required to have undertaken Level 1 (Shoden), Level 2 (Okuden) and Reiki Master Teacher training or Shinpiden (Level 3B), all in a lineage that follows directly back to Mikao Usui. It is also important to know how long they have been practising Reiki.
     
  • Do they belong to a professional Reiki organisation/s?
    We have a few different Reiki organisations in Australia including: Australian Reiki Connection (ARC), Australian Association of Reiki Professionals (AARP), Australasian Usui Reiki Association (AURA) and Reiki Australia.
     
  • How long is the course?
    Level 1 Reiki is usually taught over 2 full days, Level 2 Reiki is also over 2 full days and Reiki Master level can vary but often has a 3 day intensive training component together with ongoing practise and activities done over several months.
     
  • What is included in the course?
    You should receive a hands-on Attunement/s (not distant), a manual and Certificate upon completion for all levels, as well as the appropriate information for each level.
     
  • Who did they learn from? Will you be given a copy of their lineage?
    A Reiki lineage is similar to a family tree and traces the Training of Reiki Masters.
