Reiki Class Dates
I am accepting students on an ongoing basis, and book classes by appointment as well as dates I set ahead of time. I do teach weekdays if that works better for you. Other classes are held for my existing students.
email me in case I am offering other classes & haven't updated this page
I hold an apprenticeship each year for those who wish to work closely with me over several months. Next one begins September 2016 . More info below.
I teach Reiki as 3 levels, then master/teacher level as level 4. For more information on each level see the individual pages on each one.
Once again, as the energies & our own energetic evolution & restructuring happens at such an ever increasing pace I have changed the way I teach. Teaching reiki should be a flow, that always changes. Much of what I teach is verbal, since it all changes so quickly, and manuals are now an optional purchase available as a download. The manuals give the core teaching that mostly remains the same. Attending classes on a regular basis, if that appeals to you, will keep you updated with the newest energies and much more information & skills.
I am teaching my levels of reiki still with Usui as a base, but moving on to combine 2 others types of reiki, plus using Seichim style attunements & sessions. None of this means anything if you don't know a lot about reiki. It means I have taken the best of 3 types of reiki and combined them to give the balance, empowerment, grounding, centering & flow we require in energy bodies. And I give this with sessions that to me, are far beyond traditional sessions because they balance your chakras and reknit your entire energy field so you feel aligned with yourself & with the higher energies.

Please also let me know if you feel you've done a lot of personal work & you are ready to just move ahead into the spiritual shamanic/ascension work......
MORE ABOUT REIKI
Most of my students are called to reiki without even really knowing what it is. This reflects "codes" hidden inside our lightbodies that are waking up, so we can heal ourselves and in that process hold space for healing on a larger scale on the planet. I teach a blend of Usui mixed with several other types of reiki as a base. Once you have done the personal healing of the first 2 levels you are welcome to apply to join in my ongoing Light Journey's 8 lesson course that blends meditation, new ways of doing reiki sessions & attunements, shamanism. It will open up your intuitive and healing abilities immensely.
There is NO more heavy clearing of issues, wading through traumas, dramas & stories. The first 2 levels are designed to give you tools to clear, I will hold space for this, but YOU are doing the work, only YOU can empower yourself to move on! I will hold space & teach tools for doing this. Only those who do their work will be accepted into the Light Journey's course, this is advanced work for those who have done their clearing and are ready to move ahead into the new energies, intuitive abilities, heart centered space, and journeying.
If you are ready to step onto the path of your true spiritual journey as a lightworker then you are probably ready to join in these classes
My focus for 2015 is doing LOTS of reiki classes. I think with the way our lightbodies are changing and changing so quickly many of us are called to learn reiki and other types of energy work. The levels of reiki that are teach are a foundation for increasing the amount of energy your lightbody can hold and flow, for grounding & centering, & feeling more protected, for quick self healing and moving forward into the new energies and the new paradigm.
par·a·digm shift noun
My guides have led me to change my ongoing Light Journey's Course over & over to reflect the fast changes our energy bodies are making at this time. Reiki level 1 is booked by appointment, although I do list dates I offer it any time because I teach it to one student at time, this is the level where you open to the reiki flow, learn to ground and center and do some self healing. Healing is now more of just holding space around who we are & what we've been through, we are no longer being victims of our past behaviors or events but accepting it as part of a process to who we are now. We don't dwell on these things, we accept them and step into the empowerment of the new energies. We step beyond perceiving our lives from the 3d perspective and move more and more into embodying 5d perspective

I TEACH REIKI AT MY HOME (south Nanaimo)
Learning reiki is all about personal growth,
releasing what no longer serves you,
healing yourself & others on a physical, emotional & spiritual level.
REIKI is pronounced RAY-key
• Rei is a Japanese word meaning “universal”, to the energy that flows around everything: people, plants, animals, the earth, the planets, etc.
• Ki is a Japanese word meaning “vital life force energy” which interconnects us all, the word Chi may be more familiar to you, it is the Chinese word for the energy which underlies everything
• When you are attuned to reiki your crown chakra becomes open to channeling the universal source of energy in through your crown chakra & out of your hands for healing purposes
• Attunement to reiki both connects you to the universal source of energy & realigns your personal energy system or ki, to be more in connection with this energy flow.
• Reiki is a system for channeling energy for the purpose of healing. The energy flows from the universal source through you & out of your hands. Reiki can be used to send healing to another person, on yourself, or your pets.
• Anyone can be attuned to reiki, anyone can have this energy flow through them. It can be used for personal healing & personal growth or to channel on other for healing.
• One huge benefit reiki brings is personal healing & clearing.
How I teach reiki 2013 & beyond
My way of teaching reiki has evolved over many many classes, and many many versions of the manuals I give out. My reiki classes are different than others because the first 3 levels combine 3 different types of reiki which gives my students GROUNDING!
Grounding is so important, it gives us energetic balance. Usui reiki (the kind most people teach) is great, but leaves a person very much in their upper chakras which means you feel imbalanced, your energy field may feel unprotected as well. And I noticed my students did a lot of what we call “clearing” with each reiki attunement given, with level 2 being particularly brutal (usually). Clearing should refer to healing, not to a huge emotional and physical upheaval, but I did find that Usui reiki alone often put people in a space of upheaval for a time, before they felt more cleared.
I thought about this a lot over the years, and thought we really don’t need to be doing our personal healing this way!
In the last couple years I decided to combine 3 of the 5 systems of reiki that I work with and give my students more energetic balance in their first 3 levels of reiki. Note: you can take the first 3 levels and then move on to your master level when ready,. The base for my classes is Usui reiki with several other well known types of reiki combined in with it.
So with my new system I am teaching 4 symbols with each level. Which of course means nothing to you if you don’t know much about reiki.
Symbols are traditionally taught to students with level 2. Symbols are actual symbols you draw in the air usually that connect you with a specific vibration or energy or frequency. Think of drawing a heart in the air for example, and feel what kind of energy this gives.
I found level 2 to be so hard to get through emotionally in the weeks following a student’s attunement to reiki that I decided to spread this out in more manageable increments over 3 levels. Spreading this out combined by teaching symbols brings about well grounded healing.
At the same time I am teaching way more to my level 1 students, by teaching them 4 symbols to use with each level. Traditionally no symbols are taught in level 3, 3 are taught with level 2 and then a few more with master level.
I think we have all evolved in the process of changes brought about in December 2012, and before that time. So I thought it was time to evolve my teaching practices. You will actually be working with 12 symbols by the time you get level 3, and will learn a few more with your master level. This gives you access to many more healing vibrations used to heal yourself & others if you choose to do that.
So by learning these 4 symbols in level 1 reiki, you can use them to
Open your hand chakras to channel the reiki energy more strongly
Open your foot chakras to balance yourself, to bring in earth energy
Bring the reiki energies through you in a more focused way
Open your energy field to healing
Balance your chakras
Learn to ‘protect’ and heal your energy field so you are not taking on energy from others
You do a lot of personal healing
ENERGIES FOR 2015 are accelerated so much. The energies are changing weekly. My forum has altered to accomodate this, we are needing to discuss our insights on a daily rather than monthly basis. Most of my students are called to reiki without even really knowing what it is. This reflect "codes" hidden inside our lightbodies that are waking up, so we can heal ourselves and in that process hold space for healing on a larger scale on the planet.
I teach 5 different types of reiki. Seichim Reiki click here.
Learning reiki is all about personal growth,
releasing what no longer serves you,

the new reiki for 2012
I am totally rewriting my reiki manuals. Last time I did this was in early 2010, because I felt the energies had changed enough that my manuals & classes needed to reflect this.
Having worked daily with my students over skype since June 2012, so at the time of this writing, its been 5 months of daily skype work, we have all noticed just how much the energies have changed in 2012.
My new students are no longer doing difficult 'clearing', they no longer going through a harsh 21 day reiki cleanse, which used to involve moving through old emotions & behaviors & issues before clearing these & feeling the higher vibrations. We have moved beyond being 'mired' on old emotions & behaviors & just move ahead as reiki clears the path.
Many of us have also noticed that the traditional symbols no longer hold the energies they once did. It makes sense that as people evolve vibrationally that the reiki energy & reiki symbols would evolve at the same time.
During my daily 10 minute skype group sessions I have introduced other symbols that seem more relevant to the new vibrational energies. My students are opening up to these on a stronger level & getting way more benefits from this.
We have also decided that sessions shared between reiki practitioners are a thing of the past. While there are benefits to giving your clients sessions, the practice of monthly session shares among reiki students is a thing of the past. I feel that these sessions, essentially held us mired in our issues. (I do feel that clients benefit from sessions). Working daily or weekly over skype to receive reiki healing has brought us light years ahead of what we were trying to accomplish by doing reiki session shares.
So, once again I am ripping up my reiki manuals, so to speak!, and and redoing the way I teach. I am rolling together ALL 4 types of reiki into one 5 level system in which you will be attuned to, and learn aspects of the highest vibration symbols from 5 types of reiki energies, also working through the chakras & finally arriving at the master level.
Traditional Usui reiki gave level 1, then level 2 was HUGE leap in vibration, often causing confusion in trying to learn 3 symbols & how to incorporate them, and TOO MUCH clearing, too many 'issues' coming up. Then there was nothing else to really learn until the master level.
Starting in January 2013, I am offering 5 levels, which takes a student to a higher state of vibration, without the brutal clearing process. It offers more levels of learning by incorporating 4 different types of reiki, and with 5 levels there's easier increments to work through, which will give more balance, offer way more to learn about.
MOST OF THE INFORMATION BELOW THIS LINE IS OLDER INFORMATION
PREVIOUS TO 2012, I AM LEAVING IT HERE FOR NOW, BECAUSE
IT STILL GIVES GOOD INFORMATION, AND ALSO SHOWS HOW
THE CLASSES USED TO BE TAUGHT & HOW THE ENERGIES USED TO BE
USUI REIKI COURSE LEVELS
Reiki Level 1: Activation
Reiki level 1 activates the reiki flow within your physical body & your energy field. Each level of reiki, and each attunement will open this flow to a higher degree & raise your vibrational level.
With reiki level 1 you can work on yourself. Although it is ok to work on an informal basis on others such as family or pets, please wait until you have completed level 2 before you work on anyone who would be considered a client.
Another great use of your new reiki flow is to channel it on trees, plants, and the earth.
Everything has an energetic field: plants, animals, people, trees, planets, the moon….. everything. Reiki allows you to access this energy & channel it for healing purposes.
Use your reiki daily
Make it part of your life
Work on letting go of what no longer serves you
And in doing so you let in more of the reiki energy
Attunements, reiki sessions, chakra classes & sessions will all contribute to bringing profound change & healing to your life
What is an attunement?
To learn to practice and share Reiki with others and on yourself, you must receive attunement from a Reiki Teacher.
An attunement is the process by which a Reiki Master passes on the ability to channel the Reiki energy. This involves a process of clearing any blocks in your energy fields & chakras, and connects you to the ability to channel Reiki.
Each level of reiki requires a set of attunements.
Level 1 attunements will raise your vibrational level to the point of being able to heal yourself & others mostly a physical level.
With level 2, the attunement raises your vibrational level significantly, and at that level you are able to heal on a physical & emotional level.
And with level 3 you can also access the outermost layers of the energy field to heal on a spiritual level as well.
Others that you work on will most likely notice the increased level of energy you channel with each level of reiki that you are attuned to.
Healing energy can be channeled by any one. One way this ability can be acquired is by energetic transmission from one person to another, this is called an attunement, and is the way that the ability to transmit Reiki is acquired. Attunements remove blocks in the aura and allow the healing energies that surround us to come in through our crown chakra and flow through our bodies and out our hands to where they are needed. This is not the only path for the Reiki healing energies but only the most common or most easily sensed.
An attunement is a transformation to your energy field which opens, clears and connects you to the ability to use the particular frequencies of universal energy used in Reiki.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a system of energy healing that was discovered, and developed in Japan.
There are many systems of energy healing, hands on and remote healing. Such as therapeutic touch, healing touch, & pranic healing. Reiki differs from these energy systems in that:
Reiki is not religious. Being attuned to Reiki does not entail any conversion or adoption of spiritual beliefs or practices from any religion or particular set of beliefs. Reiki and other energy healing modes will harmonize with most spiritual belief systems that allow for the existence of energy work. http://www.christianreiki.org/ This site gives information on explaining reiki to Christians.
Understanding subtle forms of energy:
Today, we have grown to accept concepts with only theoretical explanation. We take for granted thing that would have been considered magic just a century ago. You cannot see or feel the lines of energy that carry communication to a phone, radio or TV, but you know they work.
We have barely begun to explore, let alone harness or manipulate vibrational energy.
There are many books on energy:
The Divine Matrix by Gregg Branden
The Secret (book & movie)
The Law of Attraction
Youtube has some great stuff:
The Living Matrix
Bruce Lipton: Spontaneous Evolution
Dr. Joe Dispenza
What all of these have in common is that:
we can tap into the energy around us (and reiki opens us up to this in a big way), and begin to make positive changes in our lives & manifest what we desire, while letting go of what no longer serves us.
Understanding the need to be around positive energy more
Energies around us affect us all. Imagine what would happen if you watched violent TV shows & news & dwelled on negative thoughts for 2 weeks.
Now imagine what would happened if you meditated, listened to comforting music, read inspirational books & thought positive thoughts for 2 weeks. Your life would change!
If you are ready to begin healing yourself, it is time to take responsibility for what you let into your life. This includes people who you interact with, books you read, media you expose yourself to, and your thoughts….. this all affects your energy field, it affects your emotional, & your health.
How you change your life, and what you put out there in the form of thoughts & energy affects the earth as a whole.
Humankind & the earth is out of balance. Many are called to reiki because many are needed to help rebalance these energies, on a personal level, for others & for the earth. By healing yourself you help to heal the earth.
In order to heal others you have to work on healing yourself. And it is a very good idea to have others work on you to bring deeper healing. Receiving distance attunements via Skype can accomplish this as well.
Reiki will help you to raise your level of awareness to the meaning & messages being processed by your subconscious.
In sharing reiki with others, remember that:
As more people teach & use reiki, it is like a flame being passed from person to person, lighting a light within each person it touches.
And like lighting a candle, the flame is not diminished by lighting more candles, instead there is more light……
I have once again given my manuals & class structure an overhaul. I felt changes were needed for 2012 since our vibrational levels & the energies have changed so much in the past months.
I am now giving my reiki level 1 & 2 classes as one on one classes in which you will get private instruction on what reiki is, and what it will do for you. I go over the main points of what is in the 50 page manual so we can discuss this. And we will discuss ways to incorporate this into your daily life.
This year I have felt the need to give longer attunements which will be done as an attunement/session on the reiki table and takes about 40 minutes. This will attune you to the reiki energies, begin to open your energy field to the reiki flow, begin to release dense & tangled energy & reknit your energy field to begin to bring balance & healing.
2 YEAR REIKI APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM
For anyone who wants to learn all the types of reiki I teach, is committed to personal growth & energy healing. You can use this 2 year program to work closely with me to become a reiki master/teacher in 4 types of reiki, to teach others &/or start up a reiki practice, or for becoming a reiki master for your own personal growth (to work on yourself).
After the day of my attunement for level 1 I woke up twice, once to my whole body feeling as though it was swirling and whirling with tingling sparkly white energy, generating around my feet and legs. The second time I woke up I kept blinking my eyes because all I could see was a bright yellow mist swirling around my third eye. At first I tried to swat it away like a fly and then I felt as though it giggled at me. Then I realized, "oh, this must be reiki opening up and working with the energy fields of my chakras" and then was satisfied to fall asleep again. Since then I've felt a lot of heat, tingling and more consciousness of power and healing in my hands. It's a very nice feeling.

I wanted to give you an update on [my dog] Buddy, I know you have been sending us distance Reiki and I want to thank you. Physically he is not much better but he certainly is more alert and peaceful. He doesn't seem in much pain and loves me to get him outside for fresh air, he lays on his mat and rests. He is getting lots of visits and inquiries from so many people. He is accepting some hands on Reiki, actually I have noticed my hands tingling so much lately. I am reading a great book on Reiki for animals and it is truly inspiring me. I'm not sure if Buddy is close to transitioning but we are both so much at peace with it that it will not be so very traumatic. Thank you again for all you have shown me, I feel something so wonderful is happening to me through Reiki.

I have to say i feel quite different after the Reiki class. For the past year or so I have had a difficult time feeling certain emotions - like a certain part of me had been cut off. On Sunday evening, after the class, I felt very emotional (but not in a bad way). Even now, i feel like a certain part of me has been re-awakened, and now i can be more receptive to things. i read over the manual and it said that the emotional clearing stuff usually happens in the second week, so i dont know why it happened right away for me, but it certainly feels like a huge emotional blockage has been removed and i feel like myself again. So thank-you!

I want to thank you for attuning me to the power of Reiki and starting me on my journey, wish I had done it years before! My dog Buddy also passes on his blessings to you, he is in good health, just a little older as we all are. Lin, good luck with your journey and I know we will always be connected!!! Namaste
I am so grateful to have met you when I did and you have been instrumental in encouraging me to return to discovering my niche in the world of energy work. You reignited a passion that I have long ignored and although I'm not sure which path I will follow I am meditating on it once again and know that within time I will be shown my path. You have helped me to foster a strengh that I had forgotten
