About Online Reiki Classes

See Schedule

The following is a quote by William Rand of the International Center for Reiki Training:

"In answer to our prayers and responding to our needs, a new frequency of Reiki has been sent to the people of the earth, just as Reiki has done throughout its history. Usui Sensei’s first decision when he received Reiki was to spread Reiki to all the people in the world. And to quicken the pace of this development, he said the most important quality for a Reiki Master to have is to continually seek to develop the quality and quantity of Reiki energy one is able to channel. Usui Sensei, Hayashi Sensei and Takata Sensei were each guided to adapt and develop Reiki according to the needs of the people of their time."

In response to the cry of our times and our fight against isolation and quarantine, it is now possible to take Reiki classes online as well as in person. Advantages of online classes include not having to travel to class, especially useful in bad weather and if you are not local to the teacher of your choice. Disadvantages are obviously that you will not experience the sensation of hands on Reiki in person, though you do get plenty of Reiki "hands on" practice in the class while you are online. It's simply distance Reiki. 


My classes are typically "hybrid" classes which means there may be students there both online and in person. Reiki Classes are kept small, personal and interactive; whether you are there in person or online you will receive experience giving one-on-one Reiki with your fellow students and you will get plenty of opportunity for interaction with the teacher and the other students. Most people who take the class online are pleasantly surprised by how personal they are and how effective they are.

To take an online class you will need:
  • A reliable internet connection

  • A quiet place where you will not be disturbed by pets, family, etc.

  • A computer or mobile device 

  • Access to your own relaxing music, if desired, for the meditations

  • A comfortable space to lie down or relax for the meditations

  • You will need the Zoom app installed on your device. You can download Zoom for free from for computers, from the Playstore for Android devices and from the App Store for Apple devices.

  • You will be provided with an online Reiki manual

Online Class Etiquette:

Online students are expected to attend the class as if they were there in person. So, with their video on during the whole class time (except during scheduled breaks) and not be engaged in any other online activities such as texting or answering email. They must participate in all parts of the class. 

Teacher and Student Online Etiquette:

  • Behave as if you are in an in-person class.

  • Be present during the entire class.

  • Use video during the entire class.

  • Participate in all class activities.

  • Use a quiet private place to participate in the class.

  • Use a separate room so as not be bothered by your family or pets.

  • Make sure other members of your household know you will be busy and not available

    during class time. Ask them to be quiet as you will be in class.

  • Refrain from doing other things while in class.

What Students are saying about online classes:

"Amazing blended learning experience. I was the only person online with an in-person class, but Mary made me feel like I was there. I felt a genuine connection with everyone there, very moving. It was a very comprehensive, enlightening and meaningful experience." KC, Centennial Colorado
