Holy Fire II Karuna Reiki I & II and Master Training

The requirement for this class is to have taken the Reiki ART/Master class and have practiced at the Master level for a minimum of six months. Also the student needs to be able to draw the Reiki II and the master symbols from memory.

This class is the next step after the Reiki ART/Master class, and is both a practitioner and a master class.

The class includes 3 ignitions (attunements) and 2 meditations that are guided directly by the Holy Fire energies. The addition of the Holy Fire energy in early 2014 has brought Karuna Reiki into an even higher level of consciousness. Holy Fire Karuna Reiki energy provides purification, healing, helping, empowerment, and guidance and brings much love and compassion for ourselves and others into our lives.

You will learn 8 new practitioner symbols and 1 master symbol in this 3 day class, and will receive in- depth instruction and practice in their use. To give a brief example of the Karuna Reiki I symbols- the first symbol helps to heal on a cellular level, and helps to heal past life issues, trauma, and karmic issues. The second symbol helps to heal unconscious patterns as well as the Shadow Self. The third symbol helps to heal relationships as well as addictions, and brings love and compassionate action more strongly into our lives. The fourth symbol helps to heal the lower chakras and helps to allow the higher consciousness of the upper chakras to manifest in our physical world. It is used for grounding at the end of the session. All the symbols learned in this class (including the ones that are not mentioned here as well) are used with guidance from your intuition and the Holy Fire energies.

During class you will also experience a Reiki meditation to heal the Shadow Self, and will experience chanting and toning with Karuna Reiki. There will be ample practice time to experience using and receiving Reiki with the Holy Fire Karuna Reiki symbols. There are specific methods for using the combination of the Holy Fire symbol, and the Karuna and Usui symbols to heal particular illnesses during treatments, as well as additional methods with other healing work. These methods are included in The Book on Karuna Reiki, included in the class.

This is a deeply healing class experience and the energies of Holy Fire Karuna Reiki also work over time, healing and helping over weeks, months, and years. Your training experience actually begins when you sign up for the class, as you will receive healing in preparation for the class through the Holy Fire energies.

You will receive the Karuna Reiki Master Training Manual ( with in-depth descriptions of each symbol and each ignition-attunement process), as well as The Book on Karuna Reiki by Laurelle Shanti Gaia, and your Karuna Reiki I, II, & Master certificate. After taking this class you will be offered the opportunity to become registered with the International Center for Reiki Training as a Karuna Reiki Master. You can then use their manuals when you teach Karuna Reiki to your own students, and your student certificates will come from the ICRT as well.

We hope you can join us for these advanced techniques and the heart-opening experience of Holy Fire Karuna Reiki!
