Reiki means universal life energy. It is defined as the energy which acts and lives in all created matter. The word consists of two parts: Rei=The syllable Rei describes the universal, boundless aspect of this energy while Ki is in itself part of Rei, being the vital life force energy which flows through all living beings. Ki= It is conceivable that it is the same energy as “chi” in Chinese, the Holy Ghost by Christians, Prana by the Hindu’s and the healing power of nature as noted by Hippocrates. Reiki was founded as an ancient healing technique by a Japanese Christian Priest named Dr. Mikao Usui in the late 1800’s.

In the ReikiVersity, Way of the Heart, we also initiate the feet as well as both hands.

You will learn and practice “Heart Healing” as a separate exercise using the ReikiVersity Symbol. You will learn how to give a complete Reiki session to another person.

Reiki 2 Certification
Reiki 2 is available to anyone who has completed Reiki 1. In the Reiki 2 seminar, there are three separate energy-activating transmissions.
Each of the energy activations in Reiki 2 is an opening into a new Reiki symbol. Most Reiki schools use four symbols with ReikiVersity we use five symbols total. The symbols are keys to contacting the energies. Without the symbols, the healing is neither as deep nor as strong. The symbols also open up certain inner dimensions when used correctly and regularly. It takes time and practice to feel the meaning and significance of the symbols.
Think about it. In existence, there are many symbols, archetypes used by mystics for thousands of years. The bodywork in Reiki 2 is concerned with the chakras and chakra balancing. You will learn a technique for sending Reiki, for long distance healing. You will learn a special technique for dealing with deep emotional and mental problems, which can be used during the physical treatment. One of the main purposes of Reiki 2 is to give the individual a specific technique for learning to use and to direct energy on dimensions other than the physical.
The self-healing in Reiki 2 is deeper and stronger than the basic work of Reiki 1.
ReikiVersity recommends at least 6 months of practice with Reiki 1 before an individual will be eligible for Reiki 2. Cost for this is $199
