This first of three sessions will give students the knowledge and ability to heal themselves and others. On completion of this first session, you will become a Level I Reiki Practitioner. The following two sessions, Reiki II and III, will increase one’s ability to channel the energy, as well as learn techniques to enhance your Reiki practice.
