Master Degree  Reiki Training Program


Level III- Shinpiden


Overview:  In level III, known as  Shinpiden, or the "Mystery Teachings," students engage in a comprehensive and intensive training that offers a thorough review of the First and Second degree teachings and teaches the the final "Master" symbols.

In addition to learning the application of the final "Master" symbols, this course places emphasis on the mastership of Reiki Natural Healing as a healing modality, both theoretically and historically. Drawing on each student's practice and personal experiences, this course moves to understand Reiki not just as a healing practice, but also as a lifestyle of living in "balance." Student's will be encouraged to share their understandings in such ways. Students will also receive tools for facilitating workshops and classes in the community, and support fine-tuning their business and marketing skills for launching a private practice, if desired.
