Lera's Report on Reiki

Reiki reduces stress from any cause and promotes peace of mind and focus similar to deep meditation. Reiki is not a religion; there is no dogma attach to it. It is received fully clothed in a relaxing environment. The way to understand Reiki is to receive it from a Reiki practitioner in a Reiki Circle, a private session or in a Reiki Class.

There is in the body
a current of energy, affection and intelligence,
which guides, maintains and energizes the body.
Discover that current and stay with it.

Lera’s Training

I took my first class in Usui Reiki in 1997. I was very skeptical about this energy thing. Luckily, I was intrigued enough to continue practicing it. (Reiki works whether you believe it or not.)

I completed my training for Usui Reiki Master/Teacher level in 1999 and began teaching. I have taught Reiki continuously since then. I received my training and attunement for Karuna Reiki® from William Rand in June 2005. Reiki has brought me greater health physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually and I continue giving and teaching Reiki out of gratitude.

Private Reiki sessions in my home are $80 for one hour. See each class for class pricing.

Usui Reiki Level II Class

In this full day Level II workshop, 9:00 am to 5:00 p.m., students gain greater mastery and confidence for extending their work as a Reiki Practitioner. This experiential class includes the following instruction and practice: use of the traditional Reiki symbols, with special emphasis on the long distance symbol; additional hands-on healing techniques; assessment techniques including the use of the pendulum; verbal interaction with clients; and spiritual focusing. These trainings are then put into practice giving and receiving a formal session. Snacks and a salad lunch are included. Students receive a Level II attunement, Level II certificate and a manual. It is open to anyone who has taken Reiki Level I with any Reiki Master. The investment is $199. Pre-registration is required. Schedules & Directions.

Usui Masters Level Class

The Masters level requires completion of Level I and Level II. I teach the Master's level in the format like an apprenticeship (described below) which students find very effective. One of my students was taking several alternative healing modalities to

equip her for opening a practice. At the end of the Masters training she confided that, of all the workshops and trainings she had taken, it was in Reiki that she felt like a Master.

At the end of the program, the Master attunement is given at sunrise on the beach, unless another time/venue is requested.


The Masters program can be completed as quickly as 3 months or expanded to 6 months according to the needs of the students and how quickly they chose to complete the 30 documented Reiki sessions required. (Five of these sessions can be on the same person over time. Five can be long-distant sessions and a few sessions can be on animals, as needed.) The idea is to get some practical experience to build competence and confidence. I am available for advice and suggestions throughout the masters program and after. Students meet with me formally for 16 hours during the apprenticeship program for advanced energy work instruction/practice and for spiritual/intuitive development. These hours are spread out, in 4-hour segments, during the program to allow the students to absorb the material; then to go out and put it into practice.

Le Jav

Some students take the Masters level for their own personal development and enhanced energy flow plus the advanced healing techniques the training offers. Their main interest is to enhance their skills with family, friends and clients. At the end of the program, all students will be prepared to also teach Reiki if they ever choose to. Later, if they are uncertain about something they are doing with a client, I am available for consultation at no charge. The investment is $480. This can be spread out over the 4 sessions at $120 per session. Pre-registration is required. Schedules & Directions.

Karuna Reiki®

Karuna Reiki® evolved out of Usui and Tibetan Reiki by William Rand and his students. It grew from a desire and a knowingness that there is always something greater waiting to be uncovered. Karuna is a Sanskrit word which means any action that is taken to diminish suffering of others or compassionate action. For questions and answers about Karuna Reiki(®).

A student must already have their energy systems conditioned through the use of a Master level in Usui Reiki to take Karuna Reiki®. There are four levels in Karuna Reiki®

  • Practitioner Level I and Level II are taught in a 2-day class. Included is all official elements and attunements with an official manual, salad lunch, and opportunity to practice. Investment is $250 and pre-registration is required. Schedules & Directions.

  • Master Level I and Level II are taught in another 2-day class. Included is all official elements and attunements with an official manual, salad lunch, and opportunity to practice. Investment is $250 and pre-registration is required. Schedules & Directions.

Dear Lera,
I wanted to thank you for being such an amazing teacher and for giving me so many fantastic tools. I've been living in MA for the past three years and have been quite underwhelmed by the teaching that the Reiki Masters do up here. They seem to have a system of giving attunements, very little information and no actual tools for protection, grounding or shielding.

I taught a Reiki 1 class yesterday to some class mates and the results were really wonderful. I'd previously trained people one on one but never actually done a class. It was a small class of five but it was so exciting to teach them and make sure that they had multiple tools at their disposal. I think this is going to be the first group of people that I will take down the journey to Master.

I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am that I had the privilege of being one of your students and how grateful I am for the knowledge I have because of it. I'm truly excited to be sharing this information and getting out there. My students did incredibly well! Everyone was able to feel and work with the energy immediately. I've had students


from other Masters come to me as well because their Masters have not been as detailed when teaching. I'm very blessed to have had such an incredible teacher as you! So thank you!!! I hope this letter finds you very well! With Love, Selina.

Listen to what you know though your body. Francis Payne Adler.
