Reiki Training - Give Yourself the Gift of Peace & Healing

Reiki training opens the door to a whole new, incredible world.  You begin to understand how your thoughts and emotions influence your health and you learn the skills and tools needed to give yourself the gift of peace and healing whenever you want.  

Learning Reiki is the best gift you can give yourself.  It opens and increases your natural ability to enhance your own health and wellness and to be able to offer comfort and relief to your family and friends in a way you never could before.  It is a life changing gift that is always available wherever you are and whenever you need it.  It can be done on yourself, for others, and even people located in another state or country. Reiki training gives you a greater power to help the world in a whole new way.

Reiki Training and My Philosophy as a Reiki Teacher

Claire teaches Usui Reiki Level 1, Reiki II (2), and Reiki Master classes and training and other introductory energy system and energy healing classes in Maryland, Virginia, and the Washington D.C. area for 20 years.  I also teach online or virtual Reiki classes through distance learning over Zoom.

I have taught energy healing classes at the Bon Secours Spiritual Center at retreats, the Montgomery County Women’s Wellness Fair, Lockheed Martin, and at churches.

For my Usui Reiki training, I took my training with a teacher who was four Reiki Masters from the founder, Mikao Usui, so you would have a teacher and have attunements and a Reiki lineage close to the source of this wonderful healing method.

With over 20 years experience as an Usui Reiki Master Teacher and Certified Healing Touch Practitioner, I teach beyond what is normally taught in Reiki training to integrate best practices and a stronger knowledge base of the human energy system to help you understand how Reiki works and can be felt and seen.  As a systems engineer for over 30 years, I bring a strong left-brain analytical thinking and grounded teaching style to my classes.

I was raised in the Catholic faith, so the way I teach Reiki is that all energy comes from the Divine Creator or God.  Traditionally, Reiki is based on allowing the energy that is around us and the earth to move through the practitioner to the recipient.  Since intention is key in energy healing, I believe and teach that God’s love and healing flows through me or the student to the person. It is more of a spiritual belief and by doing Reiki, we are doing what Jesus showed us when He healed and gave the power to His disciples to heal. (Matthew 10:1)

Reiki is like Prayer Plus.  You pray or wish healing and happiness for yourself and others.  Reiki gives you the ability to actively participate in the process between the God and the recipient. As we become an instrument of God’s love and healing, Reiki enhances your connection and relationship with the God. Reiki is an active prayer.

Reiki is like Prayer Plus. It combines prayer and being an instrument of healing. Reiki is an active prayer.

Reiki Improves Your Aura and Your Life

Claire's aura photo with red showing headache. Tired shown by darkness and lack of color

The first aura photo shows me stressed and tired from long work days and jet lagged from getting up for an early morning flight. Notice the darkness or lack of energy. The red above my head shows the pain of my headache. By doing Reiki on myself, I was able to reduce my headache and recharge myself, so I could listen and enjoy the conference  instead of going back to my hotel room and taking a long nap.

The second aura photo is more of my normal state with gold (spiritual, connection to the Divine, wisdom) and pink (natural healer, intuitive, gentle,  loving energy).  Doing Reiki for yourself will change the colors of your aura and transform your life in amazing ways.

Reiki Master - Teacher Training
