Reiki is a practice that promotes and accelerates healing and balance of the body, mind and spirit.

Reiki is a Japanese word, pronounced ray-key, which means energy of the soul, spirit or universe.

The Usui System of Reiki Healing, or Usui Shiki Ryoho, applies this energy through gentle touch for the purpose of healing.  Among the many thousands of Reiki students all over the world, most will agree that “universal life energy” is only a minimal description of Reiki’s extraordinary force. In her early diary, Hawayo Takata, the woman who brought the Usui System of Reiki out of Japan, stated, “This power (Reiki) is unfathomable, immeasurable, and being a universal life force, it is incomprehensible to man. Yet, every single living being is receiving its blessings daily, awake and asleep.”

This FReiki Symbol fbirst Degree Reiki class enables you to offer the healing energy of Reiki to yourself and others through hands-on treatments.  You will learn the history of Reiki, hand positions for self-treatment and the treatment of others, and ways to use Reiki to the fullest in your life. Specific interests of each student will be addressed, including offering Reiki professionally and to family and friends.  First Degree Reiki is a profound, life-long gift for yourself and those you love!

In the words of Elizabeth’s students:

Dearest Elizabeth

I am unable to attend the exchange due to work obligations but please send me some reiki energy. I have been practicing reiki twice daily and have experienced less fatigue and an increased feeling of inner peace.

I don’t know how to thank you for the gifts you have given me. I think of you often and also send you good wishes after many of my reiki sessions.

-Kathleen Woloszczuk

If Reiki is something you’ve been curious about, consider this workshop a sign that the time is right! Elizabeth is a kind and skilled teacher who teaches to her students, adapting the material each moment. Lee does an amazing job of holding the space so each student feels supported through the process. I am grateful for my magic energy powers (aka Reiki), which I mainly use as a self-care system and sometimes as a nice bonus for my yoga students.

-Michal Pearl Waldfogel

I took the First Degree Class with Elizabeth a few months back during what was one of the most powerful and centering weekends of my life. In just two days time, I was able to open to a practice that can support me at a moment’s notice, anywhere and any time. I would also like to mention that Elizabeth’s Philadelphia students meet regularly; there will be many opportunities to continue and deepen your practice with a very special group of people!
