Cascade Bodyworks offers First and Second Degree Reiki classes several times a year as well (click here to view the schedule).
First-Degree Reiki enhances the capacity and rekindles the wisdom that every student already innately possesses. Students in a First-Degree Reiki class receive the history of Reiki in customary oral tradition, a discussion of the philosophy and principles of Reiki, instruction in the sequence of hand positions, attention and guided practice giving and receiving complete treatments. Students also participate in a series of four initiation ceremonies during the class, which allow the energy to move more fluently through the hands. Students with previous First-Degree training may audit the course with instructor approval for a cost of $75.
After a First-Degree practitioner has taken a class and spent some time with Reiki, given treatments to themselves and others and experienced Reiki in their lives, they may become aware of a desire to learn more and go further with the practice. Second-Degree training involves deepening the practice of this gentle, effective hands-on healing art, offering tools for those who are drawn to this expanded experience.
In the class, techniques are taught which continue to empower the self and others, allow the practitioner to send Reiki at a distance, assess energy during the process of a treatment, and explore other practical applications. One initiation ceremony is offered for students in Second Degree. Above all, Second-Degree continues to honor the intuitive and practical nature of health. Students with previous Second-Degree training may audit the course with instructor approval for a cost of $150.
Becoming a Reiki Master is a personal calling. The pathway is unique to each individual and, in honor of this, I work with those who are called to the path on an individual basis. Reiki Master candidacy begins with a conversation between me and the student who wishes to become a Master Candidate.
