  • Testimonials

    I took my Reiki I and Reiki II classes with Dave. Dave is an extremely gifted teacher and goes above and beyond for his students as a Reiki Master. He is warm, thoughtful, organized, and very student-focused. More than anything else, Dave has a beautiful, open heart and you get to receive that essence as his student. I would highly recommend Dave if you are looking to learn Reiki and be part of this community.

    I’m so grateful to have taken my First and Second Degree Reiki Trainings with Dave. He has a deep understanding and respect for the traditions and teachings of Reiki and its pure lineage. Dave has a true presence and is such a fun, gentle trusted guide and healer. I am fortunate to have found a teacher whose guidance and teachings are with me each and every day.

    –Kelsey Faber

At Awakened Light Reiki we offer First and Second Degree classes. We also offer group Reiki Meditation.

Reiki First and Second Degree classes are taught from the traditional teachings of Usui Shiki Ryoho-The Usui System of Natural Healing, and passed down from Dr. Mikao Usui (the man who rediscovered Reiki) through the teachings of Hawayo Takata (the woman who brought Reiki to the west). Our teaching goal is to continue this traditional teaching and to pass this tradition onto the student.

Reiki classes will be taught by Reiki Master Dave Hadley over a two-day, 16-hour class which when completed will enable the student to transform themselves physically and emotionally through self treatment. The classes will also provide the ability for the student to treat others through hands on Reiki treatments. Reiki practitioners transfer Reiki energy through their hands into the receiver and the Reiki healing energy stimulates cells and revitalizes the body which helps the receiver to heal physically, emotionally and spiritually. The unique quality of these teachings is that the practitioner does not take on or absorb the problems or the negative energies of the receiver.

Reiki First Degree 

In First Degree class the  student will be connected to our initiating lineage through a four part oral history of Usui Shiki Ryoho told over the two days. There will be a specific attunement  process that allows the Reiki energy to flow through the students hands allowing them to heal themselves and others. There will also be lots of hands on practice learning specific hand positions to treat ourselves and others with Reiki more effectively.

Reiki Meditation Circle

Reiki meditation (Hatsu Rei Ho) is a purifying meditation that Mikao Usui taught to his students to enable them to get closer to Reiki. This is a purifying practice that purifies obstacles and old belief patterns that we carry with us from this life and from past lives.

This is a virtual Zoom circle. The circle is also meant to bring Reiki practitioners together in community.  Thursday nights at 7pm.

Reiki Meditation: $20 - sliding scale

Energy Class

Opening and closing spirals and scanning the chakras
A two-part, 7 hour day class

Opening and closing spirals
In this class, you will learn how to open a person’s chakras at the beginning of a Reiki treatment. This allows more Reiki energy to enter the chakra system adding healing and balance to the overall well being of the client.

You will also learn to close the chakras after the Reiki treatment is complete. This seals in the reiki energy and allows the chakra system to hold the Reiki energy for a longer and deeper healing throughout the body.

Scanning the Chakras
In this part of the class, you will learn to scan the chakras and check for the overall energetic vitality of a person’s body. This allows the Reiki practitioner to know which parts of the client’s body may need more or less reiki during a treatment.

You will also learn “Zinging,” this is another technique that allows the practitioner to diagnose weak or depleted arias throughout a clients body before a treatment.

These techniques were passed down to me through my teachers from Reiki Master-John Harvey Grey. They have been diagnostic tools that have enhanced my own Reiki practice and have helped me to be of more useful service to my clients over the years of my practice and teaching.

This is not Reiki. This class is designed to enhance the practitioner’s Reiki experience and enable a deeper Reiki experience for clients as well.
