The Academy of Reiki was formed in 1990 with two aims:

"To establish a standard of excellence for the teaching of Reiki." & "To offer a comprehensive, high-quality and professional Teachers training program"

The Academy of Reiki was started in 1990, originally as a Reiki teaching business, and has since established itself as a hallmark name in the industry. Its objectives were to create a standard of excellence in the natural healing industry for the teaching of Reiki. Many of the courses created and taught are unique to the Academy.

The owner (Mark Anderson) has been a Reiki Master since 1990 and author of many Reiki books. Mark decided it was important to make Reiki and natural healing a mainstream business instead of it existing on the fringe. So in 1996, he established a new, highly professional business in the natural healing industry. In this endeavour, Mark brought to bear her experience of over 30 years as a business man; having owned and operated a 113 bed nursing home, a software business, wholesale clothing designer, overnight freight company, insurance brokering business, crane company, scrap metal business, building and land development company and coffee lounge.

The business is the culmination of eleven (11) years of hard work, with the infrastructure alone taking over seven (7) person years to develop. As a result of Mark’s credibility with respect to course creation, she has become an Industry Champion and the business has attained a prestigious position as a leader in the natural healing industry.

What is Reiki?

REIKI is one of the most effective self-help methods to emerge from the upsurge in alternative therapies over the past two decades.

REIKI (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning 'Universal Life Energy', the vital, creative force that flows through everything. When used as a therapy, referred to as The Usui System of Natural Healing, it is an energy balancing technique for improving and maintaining health, based on the principal that a balanced energy system leads to a healthy mind and body.

In these difficult times, many people are looking for something with which to enrich their lives. Whether this enrichment takes the form of relief from pain and stress (physical, emotional or mental), the ability to make better quality choices or nourishment of the spiritual aspect of their being, millions of people throughout the world use REIKI for this purpose.

REIKI is not learnt in the sense of becoming proficient with a technique, but rather learning to work with energy to achieve inner harmony, which leads, in turn, to health and wellbeing. It does not depend on one's intellectual capacity as it is passed from Master to student through the transfer of energy and thus is available to everyone regardless of age, education or culture.

REIKI is a gift with many benefits. Here are a few areas in which it has been helpful

  • Relieving pain and discomfort of chronic diseases
  • Day to day living (headache, colds, flu, cuts, burns, fatigue, stomach upsets, etc.)
  • Promoting recovery from surgery
  • Strengthening the immune system & increasing vitality, thus reducing the incidence of illness and injury
  • Reducing stress and tension and promoting relaxation
  • Providing the equivalent of about 3 hours sleep
  • Replenishing and re-vitalizing depleted energy
  • Enhancing creativity through better communications between the left and right hemispheres of the brain
  • A unique and powerful tool for personal growth and improving the quality of life
  • Experiencing inner strength, love for ourselves, and the ability to communicate these expressions of love and strength to others
  • Helping us take responsibility for our lives and to experience positive feelings of balanced wellness
  • Helping to change outmoded belief systems and to release negative feelings about people and past experiences

Beginning your Reiki journey

Reiki 1

All journey's begin with the first step and the first step is REIKI 1.

In Traditional Usui/Tibetan REIKI 1 you will receive attunement to align and open your energy centres, and will be made aware of the great potential journey you have begun. You will come to know, in a tangible way that REIKI is “Universal Life Energy” and will now be able to incorporate this new gift into all aspects of your life as you travel on your physical, mental and spiritual journey. You will learn what Reiki is, it's history and the process of adapting it to your daily life, through treating the self and others. Although there is no requirement to continue with further levels, many find the benefits of the techniques taught in Reiki 2 a great compliment to what they have learned in Reiki 1. Completion of these two levels will also qualifies one as a Reiki Therapist.

Reiki 2

The second step is REIKI 2

Traditional Usui/Tibetan REIKI 2 teaches the understanding and use of a number of very Powerful Universal Symbols, which are an integral part of the ‘healing’ formula of REIKI.

The first of these symbols will enable you to enhance all aspects of your life and can be used in a number of very practical situations. The further empowerment of your REIKI energy will allow you to become adept at dealing with, and placating confrontational situations, in being able to clear rooms of negative energy, and to generate protection (both for possessions and yourself).

The second symbol will enable you to work on unresolved mental/emotional issues that may have limited your potential. This includes any deep emotional issues, which until now have remained unresolved over the years. This is some of the deepest work used in REIKI as it goes beyond the mind to the causal level of the unresolved issue. This is an extraordinary and unique opportunity for anyone serious about clearing blockages in their life.

The third symbol will allow you to send REIKI over a distance, enabling you to use all the techniques already learnt in REIKI 1, and the new ones you will learn in REIKI 2, and, remarkably without having the client present. REIKI is not governed by time and space, so this new knowledge is a wonderful opportunity to help those who may not be close physically proximity.

The ACADEMY of REIKI also offers a fourth symbol in addition to the first three Traditional REIKI symbols. As REIKI energy deals with higher and powerful energy, this fourth symbol will give you an effective method to be able to keep both you and your client ‘grounded”.

After Reiki 2

After completing REIKI 2, you can decide the direction of your continuing journey. You can choose from a range of courses, each providing unique aspects of knowledge. Choose the path of your training, completing as few or as many of the courses that suit your destination. If gaining knowledge of REIKI for your own personal development you can undertake courses which contain aspects that personally appeal. Naturally to qualify as a REIKI therapist or to travel further and become a REIKI Master and Teacher you will need to cover particular courses, but the path through those various courses can be your own.

Here is an outline of the various courses and what they provide.

REIKI 3A

Traditional Usui/Tibetan REIKI 3A is a two day 'Personal Growth" workshop, in which you will be attuned to and learn how to use the Traditional Usui Master symbol, the knowledge of which will bring greater power to all the healing skills you will have learned in Level 2. This powerful symbol will enhance all your healing work, and the knowledge of the symbol will bring about change in your life at an accelerated rate. This can assist your general goals in life or enhance your healing abilities. You will learn how to use the REIKI Crystal Grid, an amazing technique, which uses crystals for continuous healing. With today's hectic lifestyles this is of great benefit in 'time management'. Psychic Surgery will allow you to remove negative energy, which may be manifesting as a physical illness or mental anguish, due to unresolved issues in your lives. Techniques are taught for directing healing Reiki energy to the DNA, thus influencing its expression and therefore producing a good and healthy expression through the whole body. The techniques learned in Reiki 3A will allow you to heal those unwanted patterns that have been imprinted from birth.

REIKI 3B (Sekhem I & 2)

Sekhem 1 & 2 is taught over a two-day workshop during which you will be introduced to a sacred form of hands on healing known as 'SEKHEM', which uses symbols to harness the Goddess energy, which brings about a balance of the male/female energy within us. This etheric energy is a finer higher vibration which allows healing to take place beyond the physical 'hands on' approach. Sekhem is the Yin energy, which perfectly compliments the Yang energy of Traditional Reiki. You will learn how to use nine symbols (three from Traditional Reiki and six from Sekhem Reiki). Not only is this course a beautiful gift in enhancing your personal growth, it will be possible for you to access the Cosmic Healing Bank, allowing you to withdraw energy at any given time. The Healing Triangle will also empower you to be able to make positive changes to any aspects of your life in which you are unsatisfied.

REIKI 3C (Karuna 1 & 2)

Karuna 1 & 2 is taught over a two-day workshop during which you will be introduced to a sacred form of hands on healing known as 'KARUNA'. Eight additional symbols are taught in this workshop, each with a specific use in a treatment. This is ideal for the therapist who may be aware of specific issues that clients may wish to heal. Karuna is the application of powerful healing symbols facilitating healing on the cellular level and healing of; past life issues; child, sexual and physical abuse; unconscious patterns; relationships; addictions and aids in dispelling psychic and psychological attack. It improves learning ability; heals communications; increases creativity; manifests goals; assists in claiming your power; heals co-dependency; insomnia; fear and panic attacks. In Karuna we introduce sound into our treatments, where the symbol names are chanted silently or out loud to resonate at a level of harmonics in the sound spectrum.

REIKI for Palliative Care The prerequisites for this four-hour workshop are Traditional Reiki 2 and the Palliative Care & Conscious Dying two-day workshop. In this workshop you are taught how to utilise your current REIKI techniques and further techniques specifically designed to compliment and enhance the subjects taught in the Palliative Care & Conscious Dying course in relation to dealing with the death process either in those you are treating or for oneself. The addition of Reiki to the skills already learned in the Palliative Care course, are of immense value to the carer. At the conclusion of this workshop the feet will be attuned to the level of Reiki you have previously attained, thus enabling you to send REIKI (via the feet) whilst engaged in other activities.

Training with the Academy

High Standards

The Academy provides high standard career-level training within your financial and academic reach. Vocational education, by its nature, needs to be of a high standard; so when the Academy developed its Masters courses it decided to set a high, yet attainable, standard. This was in response to the many people who contacted the Academy disillusioned with the Reiki teaching they had received. It was also motivated by the determination to pass on Reiki with the respect it deserves, instead of treating it as just another modality or an extra certificate to collect.

Accreditation

The Academy's Masters courses are accredited with the Academy of Reiki. This will indicate that you have been trained to a standard, giving you a competitive edge in your Reiki business.

Learn to Teach

The Academy aims at making the difference in the quality of your teaching by instilling in you the confidence to teach well. By learning to teach workshops, the time between finishing your Mastership training and starting to make a living is dramatically reduced.

Skills Acquisition

An enduring aspect of training with the Academy is that you acquire new skills as well as enhancing your current skills. You don't just end up with a Masters Attunement and a certificate. The skills learnt in this course are applicable in all aspects of your life and any other career you may be pursuing now or wish to pursue in the future.

Convenience

The Academy's Masters training courses are offered throughout Australia and are available either through attending a 'One Week Intensive Training Program' or via our self-paced 'Distance Learning Program'.

On-going Support

On completion of your Reiki Master Training, you will be offered the opportunity to become a 'Professional Associate' of the Academy of Reiki. As well as personal and business-level support, the Academy will provide you with access to high quality teaching materials (such as workbooks for all levels of Reiki). Furthermore, the Reiki Masters of the Academy are committed to keeping current with trends in Reiki and will pass on any information gathered.

More

Have you ever noticed how quickly we put the blame on others and situations and rarely consider the ramifications of what we're doing? We might say that honesty is the best policy and honesty is the gateway to freedom. We tell others that personal responsibility and personal empowerment go hand in hand - yet we have effectively sidestepped both. For example, we blame others for something we have done, and by doing so, avoid taking responsibility for our actions. It may feel good for a while, but unfortunately we continue to do this and it becomes a habit.

We live in a world where pointing the finger, blaming and avoiding responsibility is in epidemic proportions and perhaps this has been the case for many generations. Whereas so much may be written about communication, it is rare for anybody to state publicly "I am not playing this game any longer." In fact in controversy after controversy we hear politicians and so-called leaders saying "Don't blame me, it was them." Then members of the public will say "You can't trust politicians and when will one of them say, 'I am responsible, the buck stops here.'"

I really doubt if that will ever happen consistently unless we - everyday ordinary people - men and women of all ages, race, religion and jobs start to say, "I don't want to blame anybody else, I simply want to put up my hand, be responsible for my part in what has happened and maturely explore the alternatives with the others involved." It will be unacceptable for those in leadership roles to continue with the same charade.

So why is 'growing up' so rare? Isn't it that we are scared of appearing stupid, incompetent, dishonest, or less than perfect? Aren't we terrified of losing something and aren't we all craving for approval, praise, proving ourselves, being appreciated and appearing to have the answers? Isn't it an underlying lack of self-esteem?

Within our society many people are feeling that there must be much more to life than they are experiencing. We all, consciously or unconsciously yearn to know more about ourselves, have an innate desire to connect with others, and wish to understand how we can access our true power, our love and our daily energy. It's being courageous enough to be able to accept where we are as individuals and so stand up and say 'YES, the buck stops here' - even if a fearful part of us would prefer to avoid responsibility at all costs.

Such a personal demonstration is an inspiration. It can have a rippling effect on all those around us and being personally responsible also means being big enough to respond with compassion rather than blame - it is being able to accept mistakes made by ourselves and others as a process rather than an ultimate result.

When we come to taking our last breath, will we feel a touch of satisfaction that we have achieved some success in walking a path less travelled? A path of giving an example of personal responsibility in action and supporting others with kindness. Will it have been a lifetime of gaining an understanding that real wealth is not equated in dollars and cents but in finding quality in individual support, personal dignity and mutual respect?
