Choosing A Reiki Teacher

There are a number of Reiki masters who are willing to teach Reiki to others. But selecting a Reiki teacher can be a difficult task. When there are many who are willing to teach and you have to choose one after comparing them the task becomes more difficult. Here are a few tips to help you choose a teacher who is suitable for you:

  • Compatibility between the student and the teacher is very important. Take a few Reiki sessions from prospective teachers and see how you feel. Ask them questions and see if your philosophies and ideas match. Trust your intuition if you feel comfortable about a particular person and like his ideas then you are likely to enjoy learning from him.

  • Taking a session with a teacher will give you an idea as to how they work, the environment in which they work and you will be able to share their energy. Sharing energy is important before you decide on a teacher.

  • The teacher should honor and respect you at all times. He must support you and aid the growth of your Reiki practice in any way he can. Must act with integrity at all times and must work towards your best interests.

  • Ask the person about their practice experience with Reiki. If the person has not been practicing Reiki for some time before deciding to teach then they are not likely to have the range of experience necessary for a teacher. Regular Reiki practice is necessary for developing awareness about the transmission of energy and is required for personal growth of the practitioner.

  • Ask the person about their philosophy and approach to Reiki. These days there are a number of variations in the practice of Reiki. Usui Reiki is the fundamental form of Reiki from here the different forms have taken shape. Choose a teacher who provides a balanced approach and respects all the approaches.

  • The cost of a Reiki class will depend on the type of material that the practitioner distributes. You may be given photocopied handouts or full manuals. Find out what you will get. Good reference material is essential, as you as you will have to integrate, what you have learnt as you continue your Reiki practice.

  • Cost will depend on the length of the classes as well. Individual classes may last from 4 hours to two days. A Level 1 class should be a daylong. If it is shorter then the basic foundation is being compromised.

  • In Reiki hands on experience in required. Therefore find out how many experiential sessions the person will have. Experiential learning is necessary to learn Reiki and this is possible only with enough practice. You have to understand the foundations and philosophy and have to feel the experience of using Reiki. The practitioner should give equal importance to both.

  • Find out whether the person will be willing to help and support you even after you have completed the requisite number of classes.

  • Verify that the person has the required approval from the appropriate licensing agency to teach you Reiki.

  • Your prospective teacher should be willing to give you written information about the classes, fees, information on refunds in case of cancellation, requirements on your part, class time and location etc. You should receive a receipt for the payment of fees. This degree of organization is required for smooth functioning of the class.
