Become a certified Reiki Practitioner...Learn to heal with your hands!

Anyone can learn Reiki—One need not have any special inclination towards healing, unique gifts, or prior experience. Instead it is simply the desire to help others, to advance on one's spiritual path, or an inner searching for wellbeing that serve as the only prerequisites for learning Reiki. All students begin with the Reiki Level I training and then progress at their own pace through the other levels, if desired. Many students work with the teachings of each level for a while; integrating what they have learned and applying the techniques. With the completion of each Level of training, students receive certification as either Reiki Practitioner (Level I), Advanced Reiki Practitioner (Level II), Reiki Master, or Reiki Master/Teacher. White Lotus Holistics provides a monthly Reiki Healing Circle which gives practitioners the opportunity to share & practice Reiki, both giving and receiving Reiki healings in a safe, intimate group setting.

White Lotus Holistics Reiki Training offers classes for all levels – from Beginner Student to Advanced Reiki Practitioner, Master and Master/Teacher. Located in Easton, MD, the Center—offering multi-tiered Reiki classes—is an integral part of the community. It is exciting to see those who complete our programs take new knowledge, skill and service back into the community, to their families and neighborhoods. Some volunteer their services to help those in need in the community (nursing home and oncology patients, abused adults and children); others open their own practices; still others become Reiki Teachers—all support and promote a healthy community.

All Reiki classes include class manual and certification through White Lotus Holistics. Initiations are given privately with Reiki Master Elizabeth Bohaker. Students experience both giving and receiving complete Reiki healings and are empowered to use Reiki on themselves and others immediately following the training. Classes are small so that students receive adequate attention and practice time.

Reiki Classes are taught monthly in the Talbot County area. Please email or call us for upcoming Reiki class schedule or to register for a class.

Usui REIKI Level I Class:

In Usui Reiki Level I students become acquainted with Reiki energy and are taught the hand positions for performing healing sessions on the self and others. Learning Reiki involves an energy activation process called an "initiation" which is performed by the Reiki Master with each student. Through this initiation ceremony students are opened to the flow of Reiki energy which provides an energetic shift, causing healing energies and intuitive insights to emerge. The initiation opens innate healing channels, enabling students to immediately tap into the flow of Reiki energy and perform healing sessions. In addition to learning the Reiki method of healing, students also experience an acceleration in their spiritual awareness and intuitive abilities as a direct result of the Reiki initiation. After learning Reiki, students report having increased energy, self-awareness, personal charisma, peace, and compassion.

Usui REIKI Level II Class:

Reiki Level II is considered the "Practitioner's Level" and offers students advanced Reiki teachings. In Level II students are given complete tools for working with Reiki energy both in person and through "absentee" techniques.

In Reiki Level II, students are given the ancient symbols which allow the Reiki energy to perform powerful functions, such as specific mental/emotional/spiritual healing and long distance healing. Students are taught channeling techniques, thereby increasing their overall psychic awareness in life and in healing sessions. Students also learn to work with their own "chi" in order to strengthen their personal energy and health so that they are able to accommodate more healing energy and be of greater service.

Usui REIKI Master/Teacher Level Class:

The Reiki Master/Teacher Course Training is designed for the Reiki Master who is ready to take his or her Reiki practice to the next level. This class is offered to select Reiki Masters who would like to become teachers of Reiki. With the Master/Teacher Reiki class attunement there is an added level of responsibility that is passed on to the initiate, as we are connected or bonded to those we attune to Reiki and teach; this added level of responsibility is not for everyone. Even if you decide not to attune others or teach Reiki courses yourself, you have a responsibility to practice and share Reiki, spreading the healing Reiki energy. Of course you will want to share—in addition to being healing, harmonizing, and balancing—Reiki is fun!

Reiki is a method of amplifying your inner healing energy, which is known as "ki". Healthy "ki" nourishes your physical body, and helps to balance mental and emotional energy. Many people also find that Reiki is a form of Divine healing love which helps them deepen their awareness of their innate spirituality.

"Reiki is one of the leading safe Energy Medicine approaches. The study summaries provided by the Center for Reiki Research are the best source for information on Reiki Research." –Norman Shealy, M.D. Ph.D.

Reiki serves as a bridge between medicine, science and spirituality.

Usui Reiki Master/Teacher Level includes a Master/Teacher Level Manual and certification through White Lotus Holistics. Initiation into the Teacher Mastership energies is given privately one-on-one with the Reiki Master. Students are empowered to teach & initiate others into Reiki and to build a Reiki practice directly following this class, with ongoing further support provided for new Reiki Master/Teachers through White Lotus Holistics.

The 21 day Reiki attunement 'Healing Process':
(you may go through)

As the Reiki energy circulates through your body over the next few months, your energy field and physical body will be majorly adjusting and just with any healing there may be an 'adjustment period'. Many Reiki practitioners have experienced strong emotions and healing during the first 21 days following their attunement, some are not as sensitive to it. This is literally the Reiki energy increasing your consciousness and raising your vibrational frequency. The powerful, wise Reiki energy knows when you are ready to heal.
Since our bodies have seven major chakras, or energy centers, during this 21 day post-Reiki attunement period it is said that the Reiki circulates through each of the chakras for three days.

So, for example, as the Reiki energy circulates through your Manipura chakra, (your chakra of personal power, will and self-esteem), any issues you may have surrounding this area could arise.
Most of us here can attest to the 21 day healing, and were shocked at how the Reiki energy really did move like clockwork every three days to the next chakra (and corresponding issues). –You will get through it! It is extremely temporary, and just knowing you are going through this process will hopefully make it easier. One woman here didn't know about the 21 day period until we explained it to her! She had to go through the 21 days thinking she was crazy. Therefore, we want to make sure you know about the possibility, but also that you stay open to the fact you may not experience it. Either way, know you are healing in some way.

Tips for a smoother post-Reiki attunement process:

Though the days following your Reiki attunement from your Reiki course may be challenging, use these tips to not only survive, but thrive. It is possible!

1. Keep a journal about your experiences.

Writing is therapeutic in so many ways. It helps you get your feelings out so they are not stored in your body as energy blockages you don't want.

2. Communicate your experinces with the Reiki Master teaching your Reiki training class.

Whether your Reiki training is in-person or an online Reiki class, you should still have the full support of the Reiki Master teaching the Reiki course. They have undoubtedly gone through the same process you are, and your Reiki class should include their support as part of the deal. Getting input from someone who has been there and gotten through it can be quite valuable.
Remember…the Reiki light is healing your body, even if it doesn't feel like it!

3. Remember that this experience is just a part of your healing and growth on your walk and afterwards you will be stronger and better prepared to help others on their path as well.
