Do I need to have an office space completely ready to enroll in FLOURISH? No. We will spend time in the second module addressing the elements and necessities of an inviting, professional office space for Reiki sessions. You will also receive a complete checklist for your office. One of the goals of the course is to assist you in completing this part of your practice. – If you already have a completed office space, you will still find the information useful for Reiki sessions. NEW! We'll talk about setting up a home office space and the practicalities of offering remote sessions.
What if I don’t have 10 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. NEW! Due to the pandemic, I will encourage you to include at least 4 distance sessions throughout the course.
How will the mentor sessions take place? All mentor sessions will be over ZOOM. (That said, if you live in Portland, Oregon, I'd love to have you over for tea outside in our backyard for your first session, weather permitting!) I'll ask you to schedule your 6 mentor sessions at the beginning of the program. If you need to change a date or time, I just need 48 hours notice. We will 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, we will begin specifically discussing the symbols in the fourth module, the 7th week. The course addresses the symbols in both the traditional and the Western approach.
