Cardinal Way Reiki/Energy Healing
a unique approach to the teaching and practice of Reiki and Energy Healing.
Reiki, the word itself evokes curiosity. When you search the internet for the word Reiki you will find a plethora of sites, all with their own unique signature to this very Sacred art of healing. My site is no different, my own unique fingerprint on the art of Reiki has developed over time and practice. I am trained in two traditions, White Light and Usui, with my Master Teacher in Usui. What does that mean though to the lay person searching for a Reiki practitioner? Probably nothing.
What should matter to someone searching for a Reiki Practitioner is the ethical and professional character of the person they have found. Does that person respect their boundaries? Does the practitioner connect to a Divine Source during a session? Does the practitioner listen and support the session before, during and after? Does that person show support, through their action, compassion, kindness and love? These might be some of the more important questions to ask, rather than what school of Reiki are you teaching from.
I have created a unique method to practicing and teaching after working with numerous Reiki practitioners and private clients. My teaching style invites students to understand themselves, the Divine Guides they work with and their clients at a deeper level. Over the course of training we will delve into body, mind and spirit in a much deeper level.
Reiki I ~ in this first step we will be learning about this Sacred Healing art, receive an Attunement to the first level and learn about the connection we make through Spirit. Discuss the ethics and professionalism of this beautiful light work. We will also be learning and discussing, at length, then always remembering that the practice is never about you, the practitioner, but the client and the connection to the Divine. As a practitioner you are always a conduit to the healing, not the healer.
Reiki I will be taught in a one day class (8 hours) and then a 2 hour follow up a month later. This will give ample time for the student to practice self Reiki, journal/write about the experience, and attend a Reiki Practice Circle of their choice. Giving time throughout the month for reflection and contemplation as to whether this Sacred Healing art is a true path
Reiki II ~ in this second step we will go deeper into the practice, receive the 2nd level Attunement, learning more about anatomy, deeper learning and understanding about the chakras, connecting to your unique fingerprint and style of practice, understanding more about what holding space means for your clients and lots of hands on practice.
Reiki II will be taught in a one day class (8 hours) and then a 2 hour follow up a month later. This 2 hour session will focus on practice, working on confidence, skill and intuition and answering and discussing any areas of concern that may have come up during the month in between. This format gives time during the month to work on others, reflection and contemplation as to whether this Sacred Healing art is still a true path.

What I offer as a form of teaching, mentoring and as a practitioner of Reiki is first and foremost an ethical and professional standard by which I practice. What does that mean? It means that my students and clients safety and personal comfort come first. I am to hold space, to create a safe and comfortable environment in which to teach and practice. At all times I am aware that my actions and words can either support or harm if I am not coming from a place of utmost professionalism.
