Cedaredge, Colorado is a wonderful, charming small mountain town well known as the gateway to Grand Mesa, a distinctive landmark and the world’s largest flat top mountain. Visit the natural beauty of Cedaredge,  which was incorporated in 1907, and let this wondrous setting be your inspiration and gateway to becoming a certified Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Level I & II, Practitioner.

An aspiring Reiki Practitioner can find a qualified Reiki Master Teacher almost anywhere. The content that Reiki Master Teachers are expected to provide is structured which allows for the universal certification. Frequently Reiki Master Teachers train their students with the same information that they had received going back decades.

The difference in my Reiki certification classes is the thoroughness and comprehensive updated traditional approach that I share.  I also present non-traditional theories and effective healing methods which I delineate in the classes. I want each student at each level to have the best knowledge, skills, and effectiveness in providing Reiki treatments for people and our animal companions.

Reiki I & II June 9-10, 2018 Certification Graduates, 2018 © Stephen Bruno

I have been teaching all levels of the Reiki Usui System of Natural Healing certification classes since 1999. Many of the students from my Reiki Master Teacher classes continue to teach their own Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki certification classes throughout the United States and perhaps around the world. There are many former students who continue as Reiki Practitioners worldwide.

An aspiring Reiki Practitioner can find a qualified Reiki Master Teacher almost anywhere. The content that Reiki Master Teachers are expected to provide is structured which allows for the universal certification. Frequently Reiki Master Teachers train their students with the same information that they had received going back decades. What I believe and have been told by my students is the difference in my Reiki certification classes is the thoroughness and comprehensive updated approach that I share in the teaching while also presenting the necessary traditional structure.

I am continuously updating what I teach at all levels of the Reiki certification classes as I voraciously read from multiple disciplines. I want each student at each level to have the best knowledge, skills, and effectiveness in providing Reiki treatments for people and animals.

These certification classes are a combination of safe non-threatening lecture, discussion, and hands-on practical experience. The classes are kept small for quality instruction.

A certificate is issued upon successful completion of the course and you will be certified as a Reiki Master Teacher.

Can I take the Reiki Master Teacher class even if I am not sure I ever want to teach?

Yes. It is a very personal process, and many people never decide to teach but take the classes just for personal development. That is fine; the attunement and the lessons learned continue to inform their lives.

I will say from my own experience that I have learned so much about Reiki through teaching. There is that old saying, “If you really want to learn something, teach it!” I have found this to be accurate in my case, as I have had so much more opportunity to observe how Reiki works in students’ lives. It is truly an amazing process, and the more classes I teach, the more excited I become about Reiki.
