If you plan on taking this course, I’d like to suggest that you first schedule a reiki session with me as it is important that you feel comfortable with the person that you will train with. I offer a thirty minute session for $20.00 or an hour session for $35.00. If you choose not to, that’s okay, too….it’s just a suggestion.
