Studying Reiki - find the right Teacher for you

There are no standards for Reiki practice or education, and it is up to the students to identify a qualified Reiki teacher.

Pamela Miles’ book, REIKI: A Comprehensive Guide (Tarcher/Penguin) explains what to look for. “It’s really a buyer beware situation, “ says Miles. “Look for a 10-12 hour in-person First Degree group class with a teacher who practices daily Reiki self-treatment.”

Here are some tips for locating a Reiki class and Reiki Master

  1. Competence: Make sure the teacher practices daily hands-on self-treatment and examine her training (it should take years) and lineage.
  2. Presence: Look for someone who is even-tempered, professional, articulate, and non-judgmental.
  3. Relationship: Choose a teacher who is reputable and with whom you have a genuine rapport.
  4. First-Degree: Give yourself the gift of the First Degree only class with four initiations.
  5. Time: 10-12 hours is appropriate for a group class, preferably given on two or more days.
  6. Fee: Low fees can indicate lack of experience’
