December Reiki 3 training is for those Reiki students who’re enjoying Reiki energy and would like to take their abilities to the next level as a Reiki master practitioner. You’ll learn several advanced Reiki techniques and practices that master Usui taught his students and receive the Master-Practitioner symbol (as well as a number of additional symbols that have been incorporated into the Reiki practice of many). You’ll also receive the master-practitioner attunement/initiation.
This December Reiki 3 training is available to students who have completed at least Reiki 2 at Relax4Life (and at least 6 months prior) and who’ve been diligently practicing/working with the Reiki energy for at least that long.
