That depends on how long you want to take the training! You can do a Reiki level 1 course in as little as 1-2 months, but if you want to become a professional reiki healer with advanced training, you should plan on taking at least 6 months of classes and mentoring total. Don’t worry—it’s designed to be flexible with your busy schedule! You don’t need any experience before starting the training process. Some practitioners offer very short training programs of only a weekend… this does not align with our high standards of teaching safety, energetic boundaries, intuition, and other necessary skills for a sustainable practice as a Reiki practitioner. Please be aware that it is not just learning the technique of Reiki, but also how to handle your own life changes that will occur through this awakening process.
