What Is Reiki?
Based on a Japanese system founded by Mikao Usui in the 1920s, the practice of Reiki we know today is a gentle energy (ki) practice that empowers personal evolution, inner peace and intuition while it supports physical, mental and emotional wellness. The Usui Reiki system helps us to enhance this connection simply and easily. Once learned, your connection to the energy deepens over your lifetime and will always be there when called upon. Reiki is non-dogmatic and can be learned by anyone with an open heart and mind.
Even though you may not have consciously worked with it before, Reiki energy is not something you are a stranger to. This energy flows through everything all the time-including you! Modern life doesn’t leave room for us to notice this subtle yet powerful force the way humanity once did. By reconnecting with this vital essence, we reconnect with ourselves, our communities and the Universe around us. From quieting the mind to coping with physical and/or emotional pain, Reiki is easy yet transformative to learn. Even a basic level 1 class can enhance your life beyond measure.

Do online Reiki classes work?
Yes! While times are indeed challenging, Reiki is not. All training takes place virtually and the attunement blessings will be performed over a distance. What do we mean by this?
In Japan, it is commonly understood that everyone and everything has a soul, and that energy is everywhere and flowing through everything. This concept is rooted in Japan’s indigenous faith of Shintoism. Lay practices of energetic palm healing (often referred to as tenohira or teate) are performed in many households and are not thought to require any specific ceremony or training.
Mikao Usui created the system that bears his name to make healing energy & personal empowerment more accessible to everyday folks in early 1920s Japan. This difficult time in their History saw rising Imperialism and great loss of life in 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic and the Great Kanto Earthquake. One of the many unique aspects of Usui’s method was the Reiju, which translates to spiritual blessing. In the West, this is often referred to as an attunement.
While some in the West have interpreted that this attunement is what “allows” the student to connect with this Universal energy, Danielle is among those who disagree. “While I do not feel attunements are strictly necessary to connect with Universal energy, I feel this traditional blessing Mikao Usui created to be incredibly empowering and deeply sacred. While the Universe does not ‘gatekeep’ around the ideas of mankind, I find the Usui Attunements to connect one to a lineage of spiritual teachers and wisdom that greatly enhances the connection. I am deeply honored to pass on Usui’s traditions, particularly at this point in History when we can all use it the most!” This traditional blessing ceremony will be performed for each student over a distance during class, with immediately palpable results.
When will you offer in person classes again?
You can read more about this in our recent blog post though in short, Danielle will not host in person classes again until the pandemic situation stabilizes. Why? Danielle would not feel in alignment with her integrity to hold a space that could cause harm. Additionally, as the virus changes and mutates, safety factors and local regulations are subject to change on short notice. Arranging, marketing and collecting payments for future classes that may not be able to go ahead as promised is an unsustainable way to conduct business.
