Reiki Level One Training

SHINE Reiki Level One Training
Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that promotes well-being. In order to heal, you must raise your personal vibration. It’s that simple. Scientifically speaking, a healthy human body vibrates between 62 – 72 MHz. Once you fall below this threshold you are susceptible to anxiety and stress related conditions, illnesses and diseases. Reiki is one of the quickest ways to raise the frequency of a human body (although, there are hundreds of ways). Learn how to use this ancient Japanese technique to bring about wellbeing for you and those in your life.

In this Reiki One class you will learn about Reiki; its origin, how it works, the science behind it and its benefits. You will learn the true meaning of healing and what it means to be a healer. You will also receive a Reiki One Attunement; receive training on how to preform Reiki on yourself, family and friends; experience hands on practice and much more! At the end of class, you will be presented with a Reiki One certificate. You must be present for the entire class to receive your certificate.

Is Reiki training for you?

  • Do you want to raise your vibration?

  • Do you want to alleviate/manage pain, stress and anxiety in your life?

  • Are you interested in attending to yourself, family members and friends with a special healing energy?

  • Do you have a calling and purpose to soothe and care for others?

  • Are you interested in infusing Reiki energy into everything you do, including your relationships, your food, your work, your life’s purpose?

  • Are you a yoga teacher, nurse, counselor or massage therapist and want to add another powerful aspect to your work?

  • Are you ready to start a journey of a lifetime?

***You must purchase a Student Kit and bring it with you to class. You can purchase the kit at www.shineakron.com/product-page/level-one-student-kit. Or if your prefer, you can purchase one from Cortney the day of the class.***

***Preregistration is required.***

VIBE: Radically Reboot Your Life

Everything in the field of wellness and personal growth can and should revolve around the basic concept that every-SINGLE-thing we choose to eat, think, feel and do EITHER lowers or raises our vibration. Because of this, everyone should understand how to raise their vibration. But while many have heard vague references to the concept, very few know what it really means or how to do it.

This class will demonstrate how everything is determined by your personal frequency and how you can improve the quality of your mood, your physical health, your career, your intimate relationships, your family life and more – simply by learning and applying the concepts we will explore in this class.

IN THIS 3-HOUR CLASS

  • We will explore what vibration means

  • Learn four basic principles of vibration

  • Discover what YOUR current vibration is (YES! Bring on the quiz)

  • Explore and EXPERIENCE first-hand what lowers and raises your personal vibration

  • Leave with resources and a PERSONALIZED game plan on how to implement a few specific changes IN YOUR LIFE

You will learn in this class that it is the result of small, consistent daily choices that will RADICALLY reboot your life!
After this class, you will see yourself as having far more potential than you’ve considered before – IT’S ALL IN YOUR HANDS – you will be empowered to take charge of your life!

If you are reading this, it is no accident, you are ready to RADICALLY reboot your life!!

This class is taught by Cortney Martinelli, Reiki Master and CYT.
