Do you feel that there is much more to you than what you currently are?
Do you instinctively know that you have much MORE potential and power flowing through you but cannot figure out what it is or how to use it?
Do you have an immense desire to help and heal others?
Do you wish you had a “magic carpet” and transcend the distance to come to your loved ones when they need you?
I had similar feelings when I came to my teacher and Reiki literally
CHANGED MY LIFE.
Now I know that I am NOT the one who helps, it is not me, but THROUGH me that the healing happens and this healing has no time or space limits. Here is a raw, not polished, unedited testimonial from my best friend who I grew up with and who lives in Sweden. Reiki has helped her despite distances in several important life situations.
Each of us has an unseen (yet felt!) life force energy that flows through us and lets us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. During this workshop you will be attuned to this amazing life force energy, also known as Qi/Chi/Ki. It will start flowing through you more freely and deeply and will help you heal your own and others’ energetic, emotional and physical imbalances and blockages. As a result, this can create significant energy changes within you and you might undergo an intense period of self-growth.
In this workshop you will be attuned to Level 1 and level 2 Reiki.
By the end of the workshop you will:
- Be attuned to Reiki to remove physical, emotional, and energetic imbalances within yourself and others, even from a distance
- Develop your intuition to easily find and remove imbalances within chakras and energetic centers of others.
- Be able to know and use Reik II symbols such as Power, Mental/Emotional, and Distance symbols
- Learn Japanese Reiki Techniques, as taught by Dr. Usui including:
Gassho meditation, Reiji-ho – developing your intuition, Byosen Scanning – detecting where Reiki is needed, Gyoshi ho – sending Reiki with the eyes, Koki ho – using the breath to send Reiki, Kenyoku – dry bathing or clearing ones energy field, Jacki-kiri Joka-ho, clearing objects of negative energy.
- Hayashi Healing Guide and hand positions
Who should attend?
- Complete beginners to Reiki
- Individuals who want to take their practice to the next level
- Students interested in earning a Reiki certification
NOTE: You will be provided with the materials prior to the course that include an overview of the history of Reiki, hand placements and self and group practice, so the majority of the workshop will be spend on the attunement and practicing.
Here is a breakdown of the 2 levels of Reiki and each of the attunements:
1. Reiki Level 1: The First Degree
Level 1 is a practitioner’s initiation into Reiki. The focus during Level 1 is on opening the energy channels on a physical level, allowing the practitioner to connect to the universal life force energy, which flows from the cosmos through the crown of the head and down to the heart and hands. We are focusing on opening your hands’ energy centers so you might become very sensitive to the energies flowing through your hands, some might start feeling heat in their hands.
Level 1 Reiki students will be able to give Reiki to themselves as well as to purify plants, water, lotions, and animals.
2. Reiki Level 2: Second Degree
Level 2 will allow you to perform Reiki on others, as well will expand your energy channels. You will receive 3 “Reiki symbols” and Level 2 attunement. The Reiki symbols will allow you to connect more deeply to the universal energy, as well as draw on the qualities that the symbols represent. This includes the ability to provide distance Reiki, or sending healing energy to individuals wherever they may be.
You will be able to use these symbols to clear energy blockages across time, as well as physical locations. We will focus on opening up the central channel even more, opening our third eye (the intuition center) and the Heart Chakra. You will be instructed how to draw the symbols, invoking their qualities, as well as distance healing.
Dr. Marina Kostina is an amazing and gifted presence in my life. Through Reiki and bio feedback sessions I was brought to tears of joy sadness and more in touch with my own feelings of joy and inner pain. I have wanted to become a Reiki practitioner and when I mentioned it to her I was pleasantly surprised to be invited to attend Dr.Kostina’s next class. I am now a Reiki Practitioner. I continue to work on myself daily and with the gifts of healing I am also helping friends and family. Dr. Kostina is truly a remarkable intuitive highly spiritual woman and I am very blessed to have been put in touch with her. There are no words to express my most sincere gratitude, except to say thank you many many thanks. God bless.Liz Borbely
Everything needs energy and it helps us to do work. Positive energy makes us happy and negative happy makes us sad. Coming back home after work, I was going to Zumba classes as usual until one day on a wednesday, I realized that I felt very positive after the class and told my Zumba instructor ‘Marina’ that your face has a glow and I feel very energized after your class. Do you practice Reiki or something? She replied yes and told me more about it. She also mentioned about her session classes. I had heard about Reiki and always wanted to learn but was not sure about the impact it has on our lives. The fact that she had only 5 people in her class for a session got my attention. Seeming very interested, I registered for her class. I did some prep work as mentioned in the information packet I received and went to her class. Her place was very quiet in spite of being on a busy road. She told us about the history and how Reiki had started. Then one by one , we all went to her to get our attainments level 1 and level 2. After the attainments, we were asked to take a sip from a glass of water, then practice Reiki on it and then take a sip again. We were amazed to feel the difference in taste. I had already started to feel this energy around me and it was very positive. We also had a small practice session and since then, I have been practicing Reiki on a daily basis. My day starts with Reiki and ends with Reiki. I have also met a lot of new people. Marina has been very helpful and changed my life. I am very grateful to her. Whenever I feel low or stressed out, I have Reiki to energize me. One of the major changes in my life is that I am more positive, happy all the time and can spread this positive energy wherever I go. Thank you Marina for sharing this wonderful knowledge and making my life more positive.Punit
Since this workshop is very sacred I want to keep it small. Therefore there is a space limit in this class. If you are serious about starting to change your life and healing others, reserve your spot for future events:
