Usui Reiki

Usui Reiki Master Class — Reiki Third Degree Class — Reiki Level III Class

The Usui Reiki Master Class, or Reiki Third Degree Class, will teach you the final elements of the system of Reiki as practiced in the West, and prepare you to fulfill the role of a future Reiki Master or Teacher.

(“Reiki Master/Teacher”, “Reiki III”, “Third Degree”, and “Reiki Level 3” are other names sometimes used to refer to this same level of Reiki.)

The Third Degree Reiki Master Class/Reiki III Class is one of the Western style Usui Reiki Healing Classes that aim to teach you Reiki as it has developed in the West, and includes many non–traditional Reiki techniques. If you would prefer to learn Reiki in the traditional Japanese way, as practiced during Mikao Usui's lifetime, please see our Usui Reiki Ryoho Classes.

Usui Reiki Third Degree Master Classes for Donations!

We do ask for a deposit and we do suggest an appropriate donation for Western style Usui Reiki Master Classes; one that reflects the additional expertise required of the teacher and the value of the classes being taught, but you remain free to choose the amount donated. Remember: Our aim is to make Reiki accessible to everyone and according to each person's circumstances. We gladly put our trust in you to donate an amount that is right for you, and which you feel adequately reflects the value of the teachings.

Remember too that a portion of all donations received is shared with charity.

The Third Degree Reiki Master Classes/Reiki III Classes are for those seeking to deepen their personal development by making whole their spiritual understanding of the system of Reiki from a Western perspective.

The class text is by the founder of the International Center for Reiki Training, William Lee Rand's “Reiki Master Manual: Including Advanced Reiki Training”, and we delve deep into the Third Degree Reiki Master teachings. We also take time to gain an overview of Advanced Reiki Training (ART). (Note: Many Western Reiki Masters see ART as an additional level that must be completed as a prerequisite to taking a Reiki Master Class. Western Reiki has however come to embody so many diverging practices that we prefer to allow students to choose for themselves if ART techniques should become a focus of their own personal learning.)

You will gain a full understanding of the system of Reiki from a Western perspective, learn the elements necessary to teach Reiki to others, and receive the Third Degree Reiki Master attunement in the style practiced by Hawayo Takata.

Attaining mastery in any endeavor requires many years of practice and experience. (We are always learning, so it can be said we truly always remain students.) It is the goal of this class to give you strong foundations from which to build, and to support you on your journey through continued guidance and by providing a place for you to receive on–going training and support. At this level, it is the path that is followed that becomes the enriching experience.

As with all forms of Reiki, you are encouraged to continue to practice. Join us at the regular Reiki Workshops to deepen your understanding and benefit from the shared experiences of others.
