    Reiki Training 9:00am-6:30pm

    9:00 am-6:30 pm

    This is a 2-day class! It is a 2-level training (First and Second Degree) of the Usui/Holy Fire II system of Reiki from the International Center for Reiki Training and is considered to be one of the most comprehensive beginner trainings of its kind! All are welcome. No prior experience is necessary for First Degree on Day #1, however, registration for both days is required to receive the weekend rate.

    It is taught by Barb Timmer, 15-year veteran of all things Reiki, Usui/Holy Fire II, Karuna Reiki®Master/Teacher and Professional Member of the Reiki Membership Association. She has been practicing for 15 years, more than 12 of those as a Master/Teacher having received her first Master training in the Usui/Tibetan tradition in 2006, her Holy Fire II Karuna Master training in March 2016 and again, another Usui/Holy Fire II Master training in August 2017. She is also a certified reflexologist and avid spreader of Qi joy through the practice of Spring Forest Qigong.


    Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique for relaxation, stress reduction and inner balance that can also promote healing on many levels including physical, mental and emotional. It works with Universal Life Force Energy to clear and balance the energy fields of your body bringing calm to body/mind and clarity to your thinking. Reiki increases a person’s own supply of life force energy and provides a deep relaxation to the mind/body which can add to the healing process.

    Usui/Holy Fire II Reiki is a new Reiki for today’s stressful times. This newer system of Reiki combines the original system of Usui Reiki with a newer, more refined Reiki that is of a higher, vibrational energy. It heals through purification, healing, empowerment and guidance. The complete system includes the four Reiki symbols from the Usui tradition as well as the Holy Fire master symbol. Enlightenment and powerful transformation can be two side effects of learning to channel this beautiful, gentle yet powerful energy!

    The use of the word holy in the name Holy Fire II is not intended to have a religious meaning. The word holy has as its root meaning to be whole and complete and this is how it is used in Holy Fire II. Therefore, Holy Fire II is a spiritual energy that creates wholeness through purification, healing, empowerment and guidance.

    • More calm to the body and mind
    • Increased clarity
