Only 3 days 'till we meet for our Reiki I class - are you ready?
I've been working on the class materials, & printed the hand-outs, which I'll copy tomorrow. It's been fun putting some of the information I've been blogging about into document format, and deciding what to include in your packets.
A couple of students have asked 'how to decide' where they fit on the sliding scale. Since I began teaching Reiki in the fall of 1991, I've wanted to make Reiki initiation available to anyone who felt called to do the work. I've also realized, like Hawayo Takata, that there needed to be an 'energy exchange' for students to value the teachings.
In her stories about Reiki, Takata shared that as she began teaching
Reiki (in the late 30s), she wanted to initiate friends & family at
no charge, but was discouraged from doing so by her teacher, Hayashi. She
decided to go ahead with several initiations, but quickly found that
her students (neighbors and friends) didn't trust their own abilities, and wanted
HER to do the healings!
For reference, my own first Degree class, in 1989, was $125-, which was in line with other 2 day workshops I took at that time. The sliding scale helps bring balance, with students who can afford higher tuition support the training of those who don't have the means. Gift Certificates may also be applied to Reiki Classes.
Just for today, be kind to others
