What is Reiki Certification?
A Reiki certificate validates and certifies that a student completed
one of three levels in the Usui System of Reiki training. Everyone
must begin at the first level and be taught by a certified member
of the Usui System of Reiki, also titled Usui Shiki Ryoho. They
should have been given a certificate by a Reiki Master Level Teacher
(RMT) for completion of each of the first two levels, Reiki I and
Reiki II. A Reiki Master Level Teacher should be able to trace their
lineage back to an original Reiki Master taught by Grand Master
Hawayo Takata from 1947 through 1980. There are many Reiki groups
and numerous individuals who teach the three Reiki levels in the
United States and abroad. Most members of these groups are trained
in the Usui Shiki Ryoho system of Reiki. Usui Shiki Ryoho means
the Usui System of Universal Light Energy.
How to obtain Reiki Class Certificates
Anyone interested in obtaining a Reiki I certificate may do so
by taking a Reiki class from a qualified Reiki instructor. Reiki
is not difficult to learn or limited to a select few people. Reiki
cannot be taught by just anyone; it is necessary to receive extensive
training in order to teach the system. There are many organizations,
schools and individuals currently teaching Reiki. Courses are taught
in three levels with the first two levels consisting of at least
two sessions each, with attunements given in each level.
As stated in its organizational purpose, REI wants to maintain the
integrity of Reiki certification and help validate the certification
of Reiki practitioners and teachers.
Costs for Reiki I classes usually range from $60 to $300. REI believes
that finding a qualified teacher is more important than searching
for the lowest or highest price.
