Historically, Hawayo Takata taught First Degree Reiki over four days, in short evening classes, after people were done with work. As lifestyles have gotten busier, it’s harder to coax people into this commitment, but I believe that a multi-day class brings Reiki practice more deeply into one’s life. Students learn, practice, sleep on it, ask questions, practice, sleep on it… you get the idea. This will be my last class offering of 2021—so if you’d like to have Reiki hands for self-treatment this winter, here is your chance… Space is limited to four people.
Before taking a class with Orange Flower Healing, I suggest that you schedule at least one Reiki session with me. I believe it’s important for you to experience Reiki as I practice it, to have a sense of my approach. An introductory session offers you an opportunity to ask questions, and gives us time to explore what brings you to Reiki.
Still with me? Great! Reiki is a simple, safe, and supportive practice that can help us navigate our lives with confidence. A commitment to Reiki practice supports our contentment, serenity, and the satisfaction experienced when we go with the flow of our individual nature. Reiki can be astonishing and transformative… with practice. This begins with daily SELF-practice. Once we have taken care of ourselves, we can offer Reiki to our loved ones. Hawayo Takata said: “You are Number One! Then, if you have time, treat your family and your friends; but in Reiki, you first, then other people.”

Kind Words about Reiki Classes with Orange Flower Healing
“After taking several sessions with Becky, I decided the next step for me was the first degree class. I’ll admit I was nervous but also intrigued and ready to go. Every part of the multi-day class was valuable, meaningful, and supportive. She gave time for questions/discussion but also quiet time to reflect and absorb everything. There was structure but also personalization and spontaneity, respect for the sacred but also room for humor. It felt universal and applicable, and Holtzman was the perfect teacher for it in every way. She also offers as much or as little guidance/support/practice after the class as needed. The individual sessions themselves were so beneficial, but since taking the class, my relationship with Reiki continues to help illuminate and support the next steps in my life, and I’m forever grateful for Becky’s role in all of it.” A.M.

Did you invest in a Reiki class, but feel like it “didn’t take”? Once we have Reiki, it never leaves us, but its effects are much more visible when practiced consistently and with commitment. If you’d like to reengage with your practice, we can work together to support that effort. Contact me about small-group refresher classes to inspire your practice in ways that are grounded and practical. I also offer one-on-one mentoring sessions for Reiki students who wish to deepen their practice. Contact me for details.
