New Reiki Manuals For Classes

Three new Reiki manuals

My many Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki students know that I believe in teaching comprehensively updated certification classes.

Beginning with the Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Level I, (Shoden) First Degree and Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Level II, (Okuden) Second Degree Practitioner Certification classes on May 25 & 26, 2019 in Cedaredge, Colorado, I’m introducing two new wonderful manuals to supplement my thorough classroom teaching.

Students are required to purchase the latest edition of Reiki for Beginners: The Reiki “First Degree” manual and the latest edition of Reiki for Practitioners: The Reiki “Second Degree” manual.

For the next Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Level III Third Degree (Shinpiden), Reiki Master Teacher Certification on Saturday, July 27, and Sunday, July 28, 2019, in Cedaredge, Colorado, the latest edition of The Reiki Master Teacher manual is included with the registration fee.

I am using these three new Reiki manuals until next year when my Reiki manuals are published.

The table of contents for each of the three new manuals is provided below.

  1. I had no idea that someone else put out “new” Reiki books. Nce to have it updated for your May classes, until your Reiki books get published, which is what everyone is waiting for.

    Hi Bruno,
    What is the price? I have certificates l, I wouldn’t mind a meeting to with you. Perhaps a review wouldn’t hurt. I do not have a practice. I live in the country. Being a Christian I would like your perspective of this?
