Welcome to The Reiki Network
The levels of Reiki
Reiki 1 is the basic level. In a Reiki 1 seminar Reiki is activated in your hands from a Reiki Master or Reiki Master Teacher. You will have Reiki in your hands the rest of your life. You learn how to treat yourself and others. It is a complete seminar with both theory of Reiki, and practical exercises.
You need no prior knowledge or special abilities to attend a Reiki 1 seminar.
A Reiki 1 seminar takes 2 days or 12-14 hours.
We recommend that there are at least three to four months between a Reiki 1 and a Reiki 2 seminar. This allows Reiki to become well integrated and for you to gain practical experience. In the Reiki 2 seminar you learn how to send Reiki at a distance, over time and space. Reiki 2 has a large menu of techniques that makes Reiki even stronger. More opportunities that, in simple straightforward ways, support you in your daily life.
A Reiki 2 seminar takes 3 days and approximately 18 hours.
Reiki 3A is a seminar that goes deeper, promoting great personal growth. We recommend that you wait at least 6 months after your Reiki 2 seminar. It is important that you have practiced all the Reiki techniques before you move on to the Reiki 3A level. Before you can attend this seminar you will be invited for a conversation, a kind of interview. You will become an ambassador for Reiki. The Reiki Network wants to understand your motives and that you have an understanding of the ethical responsibility you will now have. By attending a Reiki 3A seminar you will have the opportunity, if you wish, to train as a Reiki Master.
