5-week Initiation Course
Taught by Render Allumaya
Reiki is a powerful energy healing technique that promotes balance and healing in the body, mind, and spirit. During the first class, you'll receive a one-on-one attunement, which will jump-start you into a three-week journey of deep intention, based on whatever it is you want to bring healing to in your life right now. This beginner class focuses very much on healing the healer, so there will be space each week to share your personal journey, as well as an intention to create a supportive network amongst all students.
You'll also learn about the history and lineage of Reiki, with guided meditations, and a hand-made zine/workbook to keep for your practice. Beyond the practice of Reiki, the class will be engaging with ideas around healing: what it looks and feels like, who does it, and what it means. The class will also be fluid in the sense that the format or content can change depending on the needs of the individuals and of the class as a group.
Please note: Students must attend all 5 classes in order to receive their level one certificate! If you need to miss a class, you can schedule a one hour make-up session with Render for an additional $30.
Cost of whole course, including materials: $250

About the Instructor: Render Allumaya studied Reiki in 2010 at The Reiki School in Philadelphia, where a year later she received her Master level certification from school founder and Reiki Master Kim Fleisher. In 2013, she received her teacher training certification from Reiki Master Melissa Ameika, also a graduate of The Reiki School. She has been practicing and teaching Reiki in New Orleans since 2013 and believes whole-heartedly in a long-form approach to learning Reiki, where students have multiple weeks to practice at home, bring in their questions, and create connections with other members of the class. Render also draws from her experiences in dreamwork, shamanic and indigenous approaches to healing, ritual, women's and queer healing, and sacred tattooing.
