Types of Reiki Systems

Usui Rhyoho Reiki

Holy Fire III - Usui Shiki Ryoho 

Is the traditional form of Reiki that was channeled throught Mikao Usui in Japan in addition with the Holy Fire II upgrade.

Reiki is a Japanese word translated as "Universal Life Energy" by Hawayo Takata.

She brought the possibility of a relationship with this energy to us through Usui Shiki Ryoho, a healing system founded by Mikao Usui in the early part of the 1900's.

Usui Shiki Ryoho can be translated as "the Usui System of Natural Healing."

Until the mid-1990's, this was the most common translation and was used by nearly all of the various forms of hands-on healing practice that came from Hawayo Takata's teaching. At this time, Phyllis Lei Furumoto decided to return to the Japanese title of the practice to identify the form of practice and the system that she teaches: Usui Shiki Ryoho.


The First Degree | Shoden

In Reiki 1, you will be introduced to the history, origins and philosophy of Reiki. You will learn how to tap into the Reiki energy and how you can use Reiki in your own life and in the service to others. Through detailed illustrations you will master the basic hand positions of Reiki which are used in Reiki self-treatments and the treatment of others.

Reiki 1 is the starting point for those interested in pursuing Reiki further and for those interested in self treatments or treating one’s own family and close friends.


The Second Degree | Okuden

Reiki 2 is the next evolutionary step a person takes after completing Reiki 1 on their path to becoming a Reiki Master. Advanced techniques are taught in Reiki 2 which enables the practitioner to send Reiki energy at a distance; and for developing the mental, spiritual, and emotional healing processes of individuals.

Reiki 2 is typically taken by those who wish to continue to learn more about this healing technique and use it to help others in the community, often as a business. We are offering Reiki Levels 1 & 2 together.


The Third Degree | Shinpiden

Reiki 3 is for those that want to teach Reiki to others. Instruction is given on the Usui/Holy Fire II system of attunements/placements/ignitions; so that you can pass on with confidence the gift of Reiki to others.

You will also learn more about symbolism and the Reiki Master Symbol and how to use it in your Reiki Healing Sessions

Although Reiki 3 is the final part of becoming a Reiki Master; it is only the beginning of a lifelong journey of learning filled with lots of new possibilities and self-discoveries. 

Reiki 3 is combination of the Advanced Reiki Training and Master Reiki Training.


Kundalini Reiki

Kundalini Reiki is a powerful form of spiritual healing that anyone can learn. The combination of Kundalini energy and Reiki work in synergy to promote connection to a very strong energy frequency that leads to Wisdom, Understanding, Love and Peace. It’s primary purpose is to provide healing and spiritual evolution to humankind and to assist in the journey towards enlightenment.

The goal of Kundalini Reiki is to raise the energy from the bottom of the spinal column to the crown chakra. By opening and stimulating the major chakra energy centers, we can channel Reiki healing energy work for ourselves and others simply by focusing our intention and connecting to the Source energy.

During the course of Kundalini Reiki, you will learn different ways and means of giving treatment to another person -- including self-healing, and long-distance healing. Three levels of attunement are involved in your Kundalini Awakening. Each level takes you into a deeper understanding of this strong Reiki discipline: Kundalini Reiki Level I, Kundalini Reiki Level II and Kundalini Reiki Master Level.


Kundalini Reiki 1:  

The first attunement bestows the ability to perform Reiki energy work on one's self or others, hands-on or at a distance. At the same time the student's energy body is readied for the Kundalini awakening to come in Kundalini Reiki 2.

At this stage you may use the basic Reiki energy on yourself and others. Kundalini Reiki is the equivalent of traditional Reiki levels 1, 2, and 3 (except that you can not yet attune others).


Kundalini Reiki 2: 

The body's main energy channel opens, gently awakening and raising the Kundalini energy to at least the solar plexus region. A specific daily meditation which temporarily increases the flow of Kundalini energy is imparted, and a complete cleansing of the energy system begins. 

At this point you should now use the Kundalini Reiki energy on yourself only, although you may still use the basic Reiki energy from Kundalini Reiki 1 on others. 


Kundalini Reiki 3: 

The Kundalini channel is widened further and the Kundalini essence reaches up and out of the crown. Full raising of the Kundalini core flame can eventually take place.

Included Energies: 
    Birth Trauma Reiki, Location Reiki, Past Life Reiki, DNA Reiki, Crystalline Reiki, Diamond Reiki, Balance


Once you have applied these energies to yourself you are a Kundalini Reiki Master and may use them - and then the Kundalini Reiki energy itself - on others. You are also taught to attune others to all levels of Kundalini Reiki. There should be at least 5 days between the Kundalini Reiki 2 and Kundalini Reiki 3 attunements.


Karuna Reiki

Holy Fire III - Karuna Reiki®

The Meaning of Karuna
Karuna is a Sanskrit word and is used in Hinduism and Buddhism. It is translanted to mean any action that is taken to diminish the suffering of others and could also be translated as “compassionate action.” When individuals experience enlightenment, they report that all beings are known as one. Therefore, it is natural to extend compassionate action or Karuna to everyone without distinction because we are all one. As we help others and aid them in their healing process, all beings benefit. Because of the oneness of all beings, it is understood that Karuna is not only extended to others out of love, but also because it is an entirely logical thing to do. In the same way that you would want to heal your own wounds, you would also want the wounds of others to heal. It is also stated in the Buddhist literature that Karuna must be accompanied by prajna or wisdom in order to have the right effect.

Karuna is the motivating quality of all enlightened beings who are working to end suffering on Earth. They continually send an unlimited amount of healing energy and guidance to us, but not all are receptive to it. As you develop Karuna in yourself, not only are you helping others, but you also become more receptive to the Karuna that is being sent by all enlightened beings. Thus your healing is quickened as well.

Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® opens you to work more closely with all enlightened beings. This includes those enlightened ones who are physically present as well as those in spirit.

The Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® Class

Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® is described as the Reiki system of Divine Compassion. It is the energy of compassionate action combined with wisdom. Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® assists us in healing the qualities that are out of alignment with divine love. It connects us to the higher vibration within and of the world around us. Through this connection, we begin to see our lives with new eyes. The Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® Master workshop is a three-day intensive. After completing this class, you will be a full Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® Master, able to practice all the techniques and give all the ignitions to Holy Fire Karuna Reiki®.

Prerequisite - You must have been a Usui Reiki Master for at least six months to take Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® Master training.  

Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® is a new form of Reiki developed by the International Center for Reiki Training. It is both powerful and gentle and provides purification, healing, empowerment and guidance. Holy Fire energy is noticeably more refined and comes from a higher level of consciousness. Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® is an expression of the evolving nature of Reiki. Many people who work consistently with Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® find that the energy strengthens their awareness and the connection to Divine guidance.

In this workshop you will learn:

    • Description, use and discussion of the four level one symbols, four level two symbols, and one master symbol

    • Ignitions to the Holy Fire Karuna Reiki master symbols for a total of 9 symbols.

    • Meditations for self-healing and removing blocks to your progress utilizing the Holy Fire Karuna® Reiki symbols

    • Instruction and practice in giving and receiving Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® treatments using all the symbols

    • Instruction and practice in giving ignitions for Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® Master levels

    • Chanting and toning with Holy Fire Karuna Reiki®

There is extensive hands-on practice in class giving treatments and using all the symbols, along with practicing the ignitions, so that the student leaves class confident in their own ability. 

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.

Add the power of vibrational healing to your sessions by learning how to chant and tone with Holy Fire Karuna Reiki®. This is a highlight of the class!

This is an exciting workshop with dedicated Reiki Masters who are ready to advance in all areas of their lives! Come network with other Reiki Masters!

A certificate and a 45 page manual is 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 ICRT manuals and your student certificates will come from the ICRT.

Prerequisite:  6 months practice and integration at the Reiki Master level
