About Reiki Classes and Reiki Sessions

For the best view please turn your tablet sideways.  Thank you

So glad you have an interest in Reiki. My interest began about twelve years ago and it has deepened continually since then.  I love seeing how it helps people.  And oh my how it has helped me too.

By the way, you can click on this link and sign up for my Ripples to Waves Newsletter published every two months. 

I  offer Reiki Sessions and I teach all levels of Usui/Holy Fire ll Reiki as well as Karuna Reiki.  My practice is mostly in my home office just 1Km outside of Owen Sound in Georgian Bluffs (Sarawak).

I teach Reiki in different locations within or very close to Owen Sound. 

 About the Reiki Classes

I can’t help but bring my whole life experience to the classes I teach. Of course I follow the curriculum as taught through the International Centre for Reiki Training (ICRT at http://www.reiki.org). But I share with you who I am.  And who I am consists of many life experiences and much more.

Note that all prices are in Canadian Dollars.


You do not have to repeat any level but some people like to do that for the healing experience, the reminders, and to experience Holy Fire 11 if that is new to you.

It doesn’t matter how long ago I taught you.  Cost will be half price for Reiki 11 plus cost of latest book.  And $300 to retake the Master level I taught you, plus book.

Level 1:

Spring 2017 Tuesday May 23, 8:30 till 5:00

Cost: $150 plus $25 for the manual written by William Lee Rand (but read on for special discounts)

Level 2:

Reiki level II will follow Reiki a week later on Tuesday May 30, 8:30 till 5:00

Cost: $200 (plus $25 for the manual if you do not have the manual).

Register for both Reiki l and ll together for just $320 + $25 for manual. And if you register with the non-refundable deposit of $100 before April 28th, your manual is free.

To Register or for more information:

Send me an email at livingreiki@rogers.com.  Tell me what level of Reiki you are interested in.  Give me your contact information so we can discuss. I would love to hear more about you no what is your experience of Reiki so far.

Usui/Holy Fire ll Reiki Master

If you have taken the first two levels and have practiced using the Reiki 11 symbols with 15 or more in person sessions (up to 5 per individual) you may want to consider the next level.  I will offer the Master program over three week days in the late fall.  Do you find November to be a rather dull month?  Me too and it seems it is a good time to offer the Master program.  Please let me know if you are interested and we can discuss.

And Now More About Reiki Itself

What is Reiki?

Reiki is an energy modality. The following is a definition taken from the International Reiki site at http://reiki.org of which I am a member.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.”

What I find most meaningful in Reiki

For me, it is the spiritual nature of Reiki that inspires me most. It is a spirituality that is not connected to any religion but could be connected to all of them. It is also a spirituality that is not dependent on any preconceived concept of what God is or isn’t.

The latest evolution of Reiki coming through the ICRT is called Usui/Holy Fire 11 Reiki.  I find the Holy Fire energy gently powerful.  It seems to have changed how the energy moves through me even in my daily life.  I am happy to be able to share it with others.

So do you have to believe in God?

No. It is optional. I have crossed paths with more and more people who are confused about their beliefs. Their perspective is agnostic, even though they don’t know for sure what that means. Being agnostic is really a noncommittal belief to a concept of God. Maybe God is and maybe God isn’t. Maybe universal energy is the same as God … or maybe not. Maybe Reiki energy is the same as Christ energy or Allah energy … or maybe not.

And so Reiki offers us the opportunity to unite in a way that can have meaning to all. Now I am speaking from my personal life experience. I hear others speak of this too.

What is a Reiki treatment like?

From here, you might wonder what is so useful about Reiki energy. When I am offering a Reiki treatment to someone, I have begun first with some talk time in order to know better what the person is facing along life’s path. Together we come up with an intention to incorporate into the Reiki experience. The intention is usually something that is related to a healthy perspective or being centred or calm or focussed or something of that nature.

Before we begin Reiki itself, I like to help the person relax and I use a guided imagery that is customized to the situation we have been discussing and the intention we have formed.

Once I begin the Reiki itself, I can feel the energy come through me. This is both inspiring and highly meaningful for me. I don’t see energy fields but as my experience with Reiki increases, I trust my intuitive senses more. That frees me up to allow Reiki to do what needs to be done.

What are the benefits of Reiki?

The relaxation that occurs is visible and palpable. That in itself is a benefit. This means that Reiki helps relieve stress in the physical body. That relaxed state promotes healing.

I see other positive effects from the relaxation. It seems to help people leave the circular thought patterns that go along with challenges. It clears out the garbage chatter and they are able to view a situation from a different perspective. This is helpful in coaching. I see opportunities to use Reiki as a means of helping a person remove blocks and change thought patterns thus helping their connection with life purpose and dealing with life transitions in a healthy way.

  1. Hi such a wonderful explanation of Reiki on your site.. It should really dispel any of the fears one may have. I have just completed my Holy Fire/ Usui Reiki Master and it was a truly worthwhile experience. Marie brings so much wisdom and respect to this healing tradition. My hope is that many will treat themselves to the course and spread the intentional energy of love and healing in pursuing their life purpose. Keep your wings on and fly !!
