Our Metta Reiki® Master Class is our newest offering at Sacred Healing Hands Wellness Studio.   Metta Reiki®was realized and is taught by Tracy Houchins, ICRT Sr. Licensed Reiki Master Teacher.  It is an advanced form of Reiki intended to be taught to Reiki Masters for their personal healing and the healing of their clients by accessing all aspects and dimensions so to heal on the deepest level.  Metta Reiki® energetically connects us to the infinite Heaven and the core of the Earth,  and aligns the client so they are in the position to receive the energy in a most direct way.  It works to clear the central channel and the energy fields, allowing a deep connection with the emotional aspects of issues through all lifetimes that are ready to be healed.  The class curriculum includes:

Karuna/Holy Fire Reiki® Master Training (3 Days)

January 26-28, 2017   Thursday-Saturday 9:30-5:30 – CLASS CANCELED

Karuna is a Sanskrit word translated to mean “compassionate action.”

To qualify to take this class, a student must have been an Usui Reiki Master for at least 6 months and be able to draw the Reiki II and Reiki Master symbols from memory.

This class is the next step after Reiki Master and is both a practitioner and a Master class. Those that take the class will be empowered to use the symbols in their Reiki sessions and teach the Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® Master Teacher class. It is complete with eight practitioner symbols, one master symbol, three ignitions and two mediations that are guided directly by the Holy Fire. In addition, the Holy Fire attunements are also demonstrated and practiced for Reiki I&II and ART so that the student will be able to teach all levels of Reiki as Holy Fire classes including Usui/Holy Fire Reiki I&II, Usui/Holy Fire ART/Master and Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® Master Teacher.

We have experimented with and taught this system in hundreds of classes and have found it to be effective and powerful. In fact, most students find it more powerful than Usui Reiki! The addition of the Holy Fire energy in early 2014 has taken it into a higher level of consciousness. Feelings of love, joy and peace are experienced along with a much deeper level of healing. The Holy Fire Karuna energy provides purification, healing, empowerment and guidance.

A brief description of the four Karuna I symbols is given here: The first symbol prepares the client for deep healing and is useful with past life issues. It helps release karma and deeply seated issues on the cellular level. The second symbol heals deeply and can be used to break up the negative patterns we unconsciously use to insulate ourselves from the truth, thus shattering delusion and denial. It heals the shadow self. The third symbol fills the person with love and restores balance. The fourth symbol completes the treatment by bringing the client back into the body and grounding. The Karuna II symbols are of a higher vibration and more powerful. They help connect directly with the Higher Self and work on a deeper level. While they have specific purposes discussed in class, the experience of their energy allows intuitive guidance in their use.

Three ignitions will be given as well as instruction and practice on the use of all nine symbols including the Holy Fire Master symbol.

We’ll have lots of practice time, using the 9 new symbols!

We will also be using chanting and toning with Holy Fire Karuna Reiki®.

A certificate and comprehesive manual are included with in depth descriptions of each symbol and each ignition process.

You will also be offered the opportunity to become a “Registered Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® Master” with The International Center for Reiki Training. You will then be able to use our manuals and your student certificates will come from the Center. If you would like more information on becoming this process, please contact us.

Practicing and Teaching Karuna Reiki®

The symbols can be used just like other Reiki symbols when giving Reiki treatments. When teaching, the whole method is taught in one 3 day class as described above. This is possible because the requirement to take the class is to have been a Reiki Master for a minimum of 6 months. This prior training requirement allow students to receive the ability to use each of the symbols in Reiki sessions and the ability to teach the complete system to others.  The Master level of the ART/Master class uses ignitions which you will be empowered to give in your classes.  This means that after teaching this class, your students will be able to each all levels of Reiki as Holy Fire classes.

Class Times: 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m each day.

Prerequisites:  Usui Reiki Master with practice for at least 6 months (student must be attuned to Usui Master symbol)

Preparation: Be kind to yourself, eat healthy foods, drink quality water, exercise and get plenty of rest.

Tuition:  $1025 Full Payment OR  Deposit $300.  Balance due the first day of class

Deposits are Non-Refundable.  If canceled no later than 1 week of class start date, deposits may be transferred to future classes within one year.  If the class is cancelled by the teacher, the student can transfer their payment to a future class or receive full refund.
