Why Take a Reiki Class?

Learning Reiki was one of the most amazing things—no, the most amazing—thing—I have ever done for myself.

Many folks think of Reiki as something you do to others, but the core of Reiki practice is self-healing. Yes, in your very first class, you will learn to place your hands on others, but first—and most importantly—you will learn to place your hands on yourself. And you will learn the Reiki precepts, the five principles that will help guide you to a less anxious, more creative, meaningful life.

When you practice your Reiki self-healing daily, beautiful changes begin to take place. You will love it.

And you will love sharing your Reiki hands with others as well.

The Classes

Reiki Classes for Animal Lovers

In all three levels, you will work with both humans and animals.

These classes are designed for those who want to use Reiki both for self-healing and for assisting animals.


Reiki Classes for Everyone

In these classes, you will work with humans only.

You may have a health challenge, either physical or emotional. You may struggle with food or other addictions. You may be overwhelmed in your role as caregiver, professionally or in your private life. You may suffer from insomnia or walk through your days in a state of stress. You may be in a time of transition—a career change, a move, a time of grief.

You may simply want to learn how to create more balance in your life.

The beauty of learning Reiki practice is that you always have it at your fingertips.


Reiki is a truly amazing experience, both in its healing power and spiritual journey. Pam was a superb teacher, and I highly recommend her. She gives you hands on training in Reiki and is available even outside of class to help answer questions or offer Reiki advice.

The Levels

Mikao Usui, the creator of the Reiki system of natural healing, did not differentiate between students and clients. People came to him to heal and to deepen their spiritual awareness. He offered them what they needed when they were ready; there were no degrees (or levels). These levels have developed over time in the western world.

The First Degree Class

In the First Degree class, you will be initiated into the first level of Reiki practice.

You will learn:

  • The history and ethics of Reiki practice
  • The five Reiki precepts—guidelines for living a peaceful, balanced life.
  • The foundation of Reiki practice: daily self-healing
  • How to begin using gentle hands-on Reiki practice with others

The all-day class is followed by a three-week mentoring period where students are encouraged to contact me with feedback and questions about Reiki practice as they begin to use it in their daily lives.

After completing the First Degree class, you will be invited to participate in periodic Reiki Circles, where students and former students share a meal, share their experiences with Reiki practice, and share Reiki healing with each other. And you will be invited to continue your study of Reiki practice in the Second Degree class where you will learn to share Reiki healing from a distance.

Please note that the First Degree class is not professional training. Students will learn to use Reiki practice for themselves and their families and friends.

Class fee: $175

The Second Degree Class

In the Second Degree class, you will learn the Reiki symbols and how to share Reiki healing from a distance (any distance).

Class fee: $275


I believe it took me almost two years from the first time Pam worked with my animals before I was able (and ready) to participate in her Reiki I class.  I had never heard of Reiki before, had no idea what to expect and was somewhat afraid [what my family would think]! Six months or so later, I took Pam’s Reiki II class.  I have had so many awesome experiences sharing Reiki with my own 4-legged family members, as well as those animals in nature.  On a personal level, doing self Reiki has added many benefits in my personal life as well.  I start the day calm, centered and ready to meet the day ahead.  Pam’s classes are professionally run but yet fun — definitely worth the time and money well spent!!

The Third Degree (Master/Teacher) Class

In the Third Degree (Master/Teacher) class, you will further refine your Reiki practice, and you will learn to teach Reiki to others.

The one-day class is followed by a six-month mentorship/externship, where you will refine and deepen your practice.

You will also participate in a teaching internship in which you will assist with classes and develop a personal approach to teaching.

Contact Me for pricing. I offer this training to those students who have completed the first two levels of training with me.


Reiki Refresher Sessions (with humans, animals, or both)

These sessions are for Reiki practitioners at any level. They are available as private sessions or as group sessions. It is not necessary to have taken a class with me to take one of these refresher sessions.


Private sessions: $85/hour

Group sessions (3 or more participants): $35/hour/person
