We hope that you are taking good care of yourself.

Your health and safety and the health and wellbeing of our team are our highest priorities.
We have been teaching all our classes virtually since the pandemic started in March.

It is thrilling that so many people chose to join our virtual classes. Together, we are contributing to the process of awakening on the planet right now.

It is crucial, during challenging times, to create mental clarity and emotional stability.

Reiki is a great tool to strengthen your immune system and support yourself in challenging situations. It helps you shift from fear and uncertainty to calm and confidence.

When you treat yourself with Reiki, you also join a bigger mission, the mission of the Beacons of Change: raising vibration in the world one person at a time.

Why do we still teach virtually?

In-person Reiki training includes a ritual that involves touching and the use of breath to activate Reiki.

Maintaining social distance and keeping everyone safe when bringing a group of people together in one room for many hours is a challenge that we are not yet willing to take.

This is why we continue to teach virtually.

As more knowledge about COVID-19 emerges, we will evaluate our decision.

We are happy to report that all our students (yes, all of them!) who have taken our virtual classes say that the experience was strong and profound.

Even students who were skeptical about the effect of learning Reiki spiritually tell us that our training changed their perspective on virtual learning.

They often say that the ability to feel safe and relaxed at home and not worry about other people’s energy and health, allowed them to fully benefit from the experience.

Please note that when you take any of our virtual Reiki Classes, you are always invited to take the class in-person when we go back to teach in person.

We appreciate your trust and your contribution to healing the world.

In the same way a river flows, universal energy is pulsing through everything inside and outside our bodies at every moment. This energy is available to all of us. Like walking into a room and turning on a light, we need to learn how to use the switch. Reiki is the switch.

We’ve been teaching and perfecting our Reiki training since 1996, and in the process, we’ve had over 1300 people participate. Our classes are a balanced mix of science and spirituality; they’re structured, clear, methodical, and comprehensive, blending theoretical knowledge and hands-on teaching, while also being deep and profound spiritual healing experiences themselves. It’s an experience you don’t want to miss!

Join us for our 6-hour, Reiki Level 1 class, and 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.
“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

Our 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.

“I love the way Reiki integrates with my routine. I look forward to my morning and evening rituals.”

“I have many spiritual teachers, follow a meditation practice, and keep a reading list that is curated to elevate my thoughts and energy, but Reiki has been the single most impactful practice of my life so far.
I felt like the windows and doors of my life had opened, and fresh air was blowing in, carrying with it opportunity in my business, resolutions of old conflicts in my personal life, and a feeling of being easeful and connected in my interactions with friends and strangers.”

Lisa Jones, CNE, Visionary Healing Center for Wellness

Here’s what the class includes:

Hands-on training with Michal or one of our trained Reiki Masters, where you’ll learn to practice on yourself and others


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


A printed manual that includes instructions, guidelines, sketches, and pictures so you can refer back to it upon completion of the class to refresh your memory


A certificate of completion  – Receive a printed, dated and signed by Michal Spiegelman, Reiki level 1 certificate.


A resource library of videos you can access once the class is complete to continue your education and 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:

Intuitively drawn or attracted to Reiki without knowing why


Looking to re-establish a connection to your deepest self and the universal energy


Seeking a profound and nourishing life-long spiritual practice


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 retired from the military with a few medical issues from my deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. When multiple medications weren’t getting the trick done, part of my healing process was finding other modalities. When I went to my first Reiki class, I was hooked—more energy, more balance, more positivity, less anger.
Kyle Wise, law enforcement peace officer

I have always been a religious person, but I just couldn’t seem to find the spiritual connection I was looking for. It took a different kind of practice—Reiki—to help me feel that connection.
Nancy Dyer, registered nurse

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. Class ends with a hands-on Reiki exchange in pairs with your fellow students, to integrate everything you learned in class and prepare you to take it with you to your life.

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?
Nothing really! We will provide a pen, a detailed Manual with space to take notes, water, tea, and refreshments.
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!
