Do I need to have an office space completely ready to enroll in FLOURISH? No. We will spend time in the first weeks addressing the elements and necessities of an inviting, professional office space for Reiki sessions if you do not have one already. The program includes a complete checklist for your office.. – If you already have an office space, you will still find the information useful for Reiki sessions. We'll also discuss setting up a home office and the practicalities of offering remote sessions.
What if I don’t have clients for the Reiki sessions? If you are taking this course, you may not yet have clients. This is okay. Ask friends and relatives if they would like to receive a Reiki session. Ask colleagues or acquaintances. Reiki reduces stress, promotes relaxation and increases the body’s own natural healing. This is usually a great selling point! You may also practice Reiki with someone more than once throughout the course. No one session is ever alike for the practitioner or the client. - In addition, Flourish includes a section on distance/remote Reiki sessions.
How will the mentor sessions take place? All mentor sessions will take place over ZOOM. However, if you live in the Portland, Oregon area, I would be most pleased to schedule a few mentor sessions in-person. Participants will be asked to schedule their 5 mentor sessions at registration. If you need to change a date or time, I simply ask for notice, at least 48 hours before the meeting. We can work with your schedule!
Do I need to know all of the Reiki symbols? Yes. The course focuses on the Power Symbol/CKR, the Mental-Emotional Symbol/SHK and the Distance Symbol/HSZSN. If you haven’t practiced using them recently, you will have time to reacquaint yourself with them. Though you will hopefully be using the symbols from day one, the manual includes an entire section on the symbols specifically. The course addresses the symbols from both the traditional and the Western approach.
