Anne-Marie’s Usui Reiki Courses
First Degree (Shoden – First Teaching)
Participants are attuned to the Reiki energy and learn how to offer healing treatments to self and others. This course also includes an introduction of the seven chakras, the history of Reiki, the Reiki hand positions, the principles of Reiki, the philosophy of self-healing, and the science of interpreting energetic information.
Time/Fee: 8 hour course/$350.00 (includes HST and includes Certificate)
Second Degree (Okuden-Inner Teaching)
The pre-requisite for Second Degree Reiki is First Degree Reiki. In Second Degree Reiki, participants will be attuned to send Reiki energy through time and space, and will learn various methods of distance healing. Second Degree Reiki greatly enhances the First Degree Reiki Treatments. Participants will also learn three Reiki Symbols and will gain a deeper understanding of the seven chakras, the importance of self-healing, and the science of interpreting energetic information.

third degree: Reiki Master Practitioner LEvel (shinpiden – Mystery Teaching)
The pre-requisite for the Reiki Master Practitioner Course is Second Degree Reiki. Participants are asked to wait at least six months after taking Second Degree before entering into the Reiki Master Course in order to allow the Reiki energy to integrate at a deeper level. In the Reiki Master Practitioner Level, participants will be attuned to three new Reiki Symbols, including the Reiki Master symbol. Individuals will also be taught to offer healing attunements using these symbols. These attunements, referred to as the Four-Symbol and the Six-Symbol attunements, release old energy patterns and activate new ones. Participants will also be taught the next level of interpreting energetic information, as well as additional ways to use Reiki for healing both self and others.
Time/Fee: 12 hour course/$700.00 (includes HST and includes Certificate)
Usui Reiki Master Teacher Level One program

It also prepares participants to teach each of these three Reiki courses. Participants are asked to wait at least a year after the Third Degree Reiki Course before registering for the Reiki Master Teacher Program.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step….
The Usui Reiki Master Teacher Level One Program attunes participants to attune students to the First, Second, and Third Degrees of Reiki. It also prepares participants to teach each of these three Reiki Degrees. Participants are asked to wait one year after completing their Third Degree Reiki Course before registering for the Usui Reiki Master Teacher Level One Program.
As a Usui Reiki Master Teacher, I have created a complete and comprehensive Reiki Master Teacher Training Program to thoroughly prepare my students to become Reiki Master Teachers. I am a teacher by trade with my Bachelor of Education since 1997, and I have been a member in good standing with the Ontario College of Teachers since 1997. I began teaching professionally in 1997, and I have been teaching ever since. I began studying Reiki in 1998, and I began teaching Usui Reiki Courses in 2011.
In my Usui Reiki Master Teacher Training Program, you will receive the Reiki Master Teacher attunement. This attunement will raise and shift your vibration on all levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. It may take up to five years to fully integrate the Reiki Master Teacher attunement. The process of integration begins with the attunement.
Once trained as a Reiki Master Teacher, it sometimes takes years before students decide to venture fully into teaching Reiki. As one Reiki Master Teacher commented, “You really have to ‘live it’ in order to teach it well.” Follow your intuition and trust your heart. If you choose to enter the Reiki Master Teacher Program, the speed at which you move forward in the Program is personal, and you will receive mentorship and support from me during each phase of your journey. The average time it takes to complete the program is two years, although some students may be able to finish it faster depending on their other time commitments and various other factors. You are encouraged to go at your own personal pace.
At the end of the Reiki Master Teacher Program you may use the title, “Reiki Master Teacher,” and you will be certified and qualified to teach all three levels of Usui Reiki: First Degree, Second Degree, and Third Degree.
Becoming a Reiki Master Teacher means that you have decided to commit to your own personal growth, to deepen your relationship with Reiki, to explore the archetype of the Teacher, to embody a lifestyle of healing, to increase your self-empowerment, to raise your vibration, and to embody the five Reiki precepts: do not anger, do not worry, be filled with gratitude, devote yourself to your work and be kind to all people.
As part of your training, you will deepen your understanding of the three degrees of Reiki with the eyes of a Master Teacher. To assist you in this process, you will also learn various teaching styles, teaching techniques, and teaching aids. The curriculum in the Reiki Master Teacher Program delves deeper into the theory and practice behind healing and behind the Reiki teachings. In addition to being your teacher, I will also be available to you as a support in the roles of mentor and healer.
Just as Master Usui’s students followed him around his clinic, my Reiki Master Teacher students will be involved in my Reiki classes during the duration of their time in the Reiki Master Teacher Program. You will audit each of the three Degrees in the initial stages of the Program and you will be a Teaching Assistant in each of the three Degrees in the later stages of the Program.
A common question Reiki Masters ask is, “Can I take the Reiki Master Teacher Training Program even if I don’t plan to teach?” The answer is, yes! Again, this is a very personal journey, and many Reiki Master Teachers don’t teach but take the Teacher Program for other reasons, such as personal development, to raise their vibration, to gain spiritual mentorship, to deepen their relationship with Reiki, and to deepen their own Reiki practice. Also, since it is now a pre-requisite for students to have their Reiki Master Teacher Level before entering into the practice of Karuna® Reiki, some students are entering the Usui Reiki Master Teacher Program as a way to become Karuna® Reiki Practitioners and Karuna® Reiki Masters and Teachers.
I have a strong Teacher Archetype and the Spirit Animal, the Wolf, is one of my guides. From my own experience, I have learned so much about Reiki through teaching. As the old saying goes, “If you really want to learn something, teach it!” Nevertheless, not everyone has the desire to teach, and each of us must honour our own unique Paths. If you are not called to teach, yet are called to take the Reiki Master Teacher Program as a Healer, as a Student, as a Seeker, or as a way to enter into spiritual mentorship; welcome, your North Star Path will be strengthened through your work in this Program.
I offer the Reiki Master Teacher Program to Reiki Master Practitioners when they are ready to commit on a deeper level to their own and others’ healing and service.
In summary, the Reiki Master Teacher Program that I have created is meant to prepare you to pass on the Reiki teachings, to prepare you to teach if you are called to do so, to deepen your passion for and commitment to Reiki, to raise your vibration, to enable you to connect more fully with people, to connect more fully with yourself, to release your limitations, to bring you greater abundance and joy, to strengthen your self-empowerment, to give you much support and healing, and to align you with your North Star Path.
If you are interested in registering for the Program, or if you would simply like to learn more about the Program, please let me know and we will arrange a time to meet up soon.
May all who would benefit from this Path be guided to it.
Reiki Master Teacher Level Two PROGRAM
The Reiki Master Teacher Level Two Course attunes participants to attune students to the Reiki Master Teacher Levels One and Two. It also prepares participants to teach each of these two Reiki courses.
Anne-Marie’s Karuna Reiki® Courses
The Usui Reiki Master Teacher Level is a prerequisite for the Karuna Courses.
Karuna means, “compassionate action.” William Lee Rand, founder of the International Center for Reiki Training, gathered the Karuna Reiki ® symbols and created a system of attunements. There are twelve symbols in Karuna Reiki ® and they are considered to have a higher vibratory level than the Usui Reiki symbols. In each level of Karuna Reiki ®, healing the shadow self in combination with the symbols is a major focus. Participants will also learn the benefits of sound healing through chanting, toning, and drumming with Reiki. The Karuna Reiki ® system helps to facilitate energy healing on all levels: physical, emotional, mental, cellular and spiritual.
Anne-Marie's Karuna Reiki® Courses include instruction, information, and practice on the following:
The historical and spiritual origins of Karuna Reiki®
Karuna Reiki® healing symbols
How to use Karuna healing energy and symbols in a variety of ways
