Reiki Level 1 Live Virtual Class

An Official Training of the
Original Usui Reiki System

Interactive Live Class from the Comfort and Safety of Your Home

Our live, online Reiki class unites people and practitioners from all over the world. They’re a balanced mix of science and spirituality, blending theoretical knowledge and hands-on practice, while also being deep and profound spiritual healing experiences themselves. It's an immersive, interactive class you can do from the comfort of your own home, where you’ll:

  • Learn the original Usui system of Reiki—We teach in a comprehensive, traditional way, using a structured three-step process for self-Reiki and a five-step process for giving Reiki to someone else.
  • Develop a life-long practice to heal yourself—You’ll leave us with a personal healing and self-care practice you can use to manage chronic pain, anxiety, and depression, and re-energize and re-charge yourself every morning.
  • Learn how to share it with others—If your family member is stressed or anxious, you can help heal them; or integrate Reiki into another healing modality you’re already doing.

Our live, online Level 1 Reiki class is about more than learning Reiki—it’s a deep healing experience.
People come to us to learn Reiki and leave surprised by the amount of personal healing they experience in the class. In fact, 90% of participants, when they finish our class, report having experienced a major shift. They feel lighter, more optimistic, joyful and inspired like they’ve reclaimed their vitality back. That’s the beautiful thing about Reiki—it’s a self-guided healing technique, which means the energy will flow to wherever you need it most.

“The learning process was very accessible. Every step of the way, I felt, ‘I can do this’.

The presentations were organized, informative, and engaging. Michal and Jen connected with us individually and as a group. One of the things I loved about the class was the depth of thinking and authenticity they brought to the teaching of Reiki. They made the learning process very accessible.”

Nancy L. Seibel, wellness and life coach, Maryland

“After the Reiki Class I feel better physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Physically, I hold less tension in my jaw, and my thoughts surrounding my injured knee are more loving and supportive. Emotionally, I am grateful for a practice that will support me for the rest of my life. As an empath, I use Reiki as a tool to help me let go of the bad mojo I've taken on my entire life. Mentally, I notice a difference in my ability to focus. Spiritually, I find that Reiki satisfies my desire for a connection to the greater good, and I love that I can share it with others in a non-judgmental, non-threatening way.”

Carrie Barton, Idaho

Here’s what the class includes:

Live, online training with Michal where you’ll get hands-on practice


Your first Reiki attunement – the process that connects you to Reiki and makes Reiki available to you for good


A manual that includes instructions, guidelines, sketches, and pictures so you can refer back to it upon completion of the class to refresh your memory (mailed to anyone in the contiguous US, PDF format outside the US)

A certificate of completion  – A printed, dated, signed certificate of completion once you finish (mailed to anyone in the contiguous US, PDF format outside the US).

Recordings of each session will be available in our membership portal for class participants for one year so you can refer back to them in your practice


An online Reiki community where you can ask questions and get feedback

What makes our classes so different?

With us, you get personalized, ongoing support from our Master Practitioners once the class is complete. What often happens after classes is people get back into their lives and lack the support needed to keep the practice going. This is where our program is very different from others – we’re interested in teaching you how to make Reiki a real part of your life and we have an online community of like-minded people who are interested in doing the same.

This class is for you if you’re:

Looking for the live interaction of a real class, but with the comfort and convenience of an online class you can take from your own home


Interested in learning Reiki from an experienced Reiki Master who has been living and breathing Reiki since 1996, our founder Michal Spiegelman

Dealing with chronic pain or anxiety/depression and wanting to help heal yourself


Interested in personal growth and development


A highly sensitive person struggling with absorbing the energy of others


Wanting to develop knowledge on alternative healing methods for yourself, your family, your pets and your clients


Feeling stuck in life and in need of positive movement forward

“I felt connected to my true self while giving Reiki in the class. Compassion and selfless love were overflowing from me to the person on the table. It was a beautiful feeling.”
Sneha Kalvakota

"The energy was amazing, and the class had an easy flow.

It was great receiving the physical manual in the mail before class because holding the manual in my hand as I watched the videos and demonstrations really helped me.

Giving Reiki to myself since I took the online class has been awesome. It really raises my self-awareness, and it gives me a way to love myself. When I put my hands on my abdomen. it almost feels like putting my hands on my inner child, loving her.”

Joan Kling, California

“I am an allopathic-trained pediatrician, and I learned Reiki with the Beacons of Change. I can attest to the healing and stress-relieving properties of Reiki. Highly recommend it if you need to be resourced. I believe that the Beacons of Change team and community are an excellent source of support for medical professionals who feel overwhelmed and exhausted.”

Debbie Sumner

Allopathic-trained pediatrician, GA

As a fully online learner of Reiki, I felt the experience was incredibly rewarding and never felt less than or limited. I say that as someone that doesn’t always enjoy online learning. I believe it works because you can feel the energy through time, space and distance. To me it only showed me how powerful Reiki is!

Sarah Magowan

“Reiki gave me the strength to walk away from my addictions.

Though I was introduced to Reiki in 2001 and never utilized it, I feel like stayed with me, keeping me from too much harm.

Reiki came back into my life almost a year ago when I was lost in a pit of despair, self-hate, and a 24-year drug and alcohol addiction I thought I could never get rid of. 

Reiki gave me the strength to walk away from my addictions and so many other things that no longer served the person I wanted to become.

Now I am over 9 months clean and on a healing and self-love journey that I wouldn’t trade for anything. I’m starting my own business to help others to do the same!  I cannot thank Michal and her team enough for working with me and supporting me on this journey!"

DJ Kesner

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect during Reiki Level 1 Class?

An hour into the class, after doing introductions and learning the basics of Reiki, you will be given a series of Reiki Attunements that empower you to practice Reiki. You’ll learn and practice how to get centered before using Reiki and how to give Reiki to yourself and others. 

How do I prepare for the class?

The history of Reiki, the way it was rediscovered and brought to the world is a fascinating story and a very important part of Reiki studies. To start your Reiki education, we recommend you read one of these 2 books before the training:
Reiki: Hawayo Takata’s Story, by Helen J. Haberly

Living Reiki: Takata’s Teachings, as told to Fran Brown

You are welcome to learn about the roots of Reiki from other Reiki books or online.

Should I bring anything?

A pen! We will mail you a manual if you live in the contiguous US. If you live outside the US you will get a PDF copy.

What should I wear?
Anything that makes you comfortable.
Will I have homework?
Yes, you will! To practice Reiki on yourself for at least 20 minutes a day. Most people practice in bed, while falling asleep or upon awakening. You will probably also look for moments in your day when you can use Reiki spontaneously when needed. Continuing to practice every day is how you will get the most out of your Reiki gift.
Is 6 hours of training really enough?
Absolutely. By the time class ends, most students have already seen the benefits of Reiki and feel enthusiastic about continuing to practice Reiki, which is the most important part. 6 hours is the perfect time to give you all the tools you need to welcome Reiki into your life.
What happens after the Reiki class? Do you offer any follow up or support?

Yes, we offer support in several ways and we will cover this subject in the last few minutes of the class.

Our support system includes:

  • 21-day Reiki support system.
  • A private Reiki Community on Facebook with your fellow students and teachers.
  • Our Master Trainers who support our students by email and phone.

Our goal is to become your Reiki family. Many of our students become Reiki buddies, meeting frequently online to help support each other in their journey. We have an amazing community you’ll love to be part of!
