Virginia Hart Nelson,

Usui Shiki Royho System of Reiki Natural Healing

Reiki promotes healing and regeneration on all levels
and is a natural form of preventative medicine.

Reiki is a form of vibrational healing. The practitioner harnesses the Life Force in his or her hands and lays them gently on the recipient at specified points. Reiki stimulates one’s natural tendency to be vibrant, and is beneficial in maintaining and extending one’s balance, perspective, health, and emotional well-being. It can assist in slowing the aging process. Reiki also stems trauma and accelerates healing during times of extreme stress as well as pre and post-surgery. For some examples of healing applications, please read Stories of Healing with Reiki & Hypnotherapy in the Articles Section, which appeared in Vitality Magazine, Fall 2021.

Virginia became a Traditional Reiki Master in May 1994, having been certified in all three levels with the American Reiki Master Association (ARMA) in 1993/94. Virginia has been treating others since that time. The late Dr. Arthur Robertson who was President of ARMA studied with Iris Ishikuro, who was initiated by her friend Hawayo Takata. Mrs.Takata studied with Dr. Hyashi who is the direct link to Dr. Mikao Usui. In lineage, therefore, Dr. Robertson was only four people removed from Dr.Usui. Hawayo Takata is the linchpin who introduced Reiki into North America. Virginia was attuned by ARMA Vice-President (now President) Caroline Boddie.

Certification - Reiki Master (III)

This two day course is also a time of personal replenishment. Includes a fully-illustratred workbook and Certificate. Reiki Master Classes by arrangement.

The Reiki Master Level is for those who are dedicated in their desire to apply this healing modality in their own life and to increase inner-peace. You will already have had some experience in giving treatments to others, to yourself, and using the Reiki principles in your own life.

For years, I have had many students who did not plan to go on to teach or even to have a private Reiki practice, but who nevertheless wanted to benefit from the affirming nature of the teachings at the Master Level. You will learn more advanced healing techniques, a Master Spiritual Exercise, as well as reviewing the Principles of Healing, ethics, and anomalies that can occur. We will also cover perspectives on the nature of disease, personal centering, and more…

You will receive the Master Empowerment Symbol and learn how to attune and initiate another by holding a specific focus of empowerment and upliftment for the one before you.

If you should decide to go on to teach Reiki, you will be qualified to do so, after a period of practicing and integrating the ability to attune another in the initiation process.

Reiki Master Classes are given at mutually convenient times. The fee for this two-day course is $495.00.
