The ability to use Reiki is transferred to the student by the Reiki Master/Teacher through an initiation process thereby making it possible for anyone to learn Reiki.
The initiation opens energy centres called chakras in the crown of the head and the palms. This creates a special link between the recipient and the Reiki source. Because of this unique attunement process, and simple guidelines, Reiki can be easily taught in a short time.
At the Westcoast Reiki Centre, Reiki is taught in three degrees followed by a Master/Teacher training program. Your course investment includes a student manual and certificate.
For all our graduates, we hope that you continue to use the Centre and the Reiki Practitioners and Teachers who work from it as a resource.
What is Kundalini Reiki? Kundalini Reiki is a unique form of Reiki channelled in the 1990s by Danish Reiki Master Ole Gabrielsen. It is an extremely distilled form of Reiki with an emphasis on igniting a process of personal growth and expansion. Kundalini Reiki lacks the traditional symbolism of Usui Reiki. It is a synthesis of the philosophies of Reiki as a spiritual (Sky) energy with Tantric notions of Kundalini and Earth energy.
How is it Different from Usui Reiki? It is transferred to students through a series of 3 attunements that you will receive over 3 weeks. It is important to allow time between the attunements for your nervous system to integrate the new energies.
The series of attunements will work to open and clear your personal energy channels (chakras and meridians) and begin the awakening and/or aligning process of your inner Kundalini fire. This energy will rise from the Root Chakra up the spinal column to unite with the Reiki energy entering through the Crown Chakra. Because Reiki is an intelligent energy the Kundalini awakening is perfectly balanced; the energy will flow through your system is a way correct for you and your current state. This form of Reiki emphasizes the union and balance of Heaven & Earth energies within your being.
By the final attunement, you will have learned tools to draw upon the strength and power of both these universal energies for the purposes of healing and self-development. You will be able to treat yourself and others using, as well as send Reiki at a distance and to any situation for karmic healing, including DNA repair, past life and birth trauma healing. The final attunement qualifies you to pass Kundalini Reiki attunements to others.

Why become a Reiki Master-Teacher? In our opinion, to be able to perform Reiki initiations is one of Reiki’s greatest gifts that we can offer. A Reiki initiation – at any level – opens the recipient to a whole new state of connectedness and oneness with Source energy. Once initiated, the potential for self-healing and ability to support healing in others is a true blessing. The question then becomes not so much why, as, why not?
In addition to discussing what it means to be a Reiki Master-Teacher, this training will include how to successfully and confidently perform Reiki attunements/initiations; how to create a strong energetic class container and hold space for your students; how to structure and teach your classes; how to instruct students in table and chair work; how to lead Reiki meditations; the ethics of Reiki, and more. You will also receive two additional symbols that are used in the initiation process and learn how to perform the special breath technique used for the initiations. There will be plenty of time for practicing the initiations as well as time for integrating your experiences. Upon completion you will be able to offer courses in all levels of Reiki as a Reiki Master Teacher.
Pre-requisites for this course:
Third Degree Reiki Part A, memorization of all 4 Usui Reiki symbols and a sincere commitment to be in service to your own personal growth. Upon registering for this class you will be sent an exercise to complete prior to final acceptance into the class. If you have not taken your previous Reiki Degrees at the Westcoast Reiki Centre we may ask that you submit a copy of your certificates.
Karuna is a Sanskrit word and is translated to mean any action that is taken to diminish the suffering of others. Karuna Reiki® is the Reiki of compassionate action.
Karuna Reiki® is the logical next step for those who have been initiated to the Usui Master Symbol. Developed by William Lee Rand in the late 1990’s, this wonderful energy opens you to work more closely with all enlightened beings.
Karuna Reiki® Master Practitioner Level I & II attunes you to eight new symbols. The Karuna symbols vibrate at a very high level and are extremely powerful. The symbols in Level I are viewed as more personal symbols that help to clear karmic conditions, while the Level II symbols are of a more transpersonal nature and can work on a collective level. All the symbols help to connect directly with your Higher Self and work on a very deep level. While they have specific purposes discussed in class, the experience of their energy allows intuitive guidance in their use.
Pre-requisites for this course:
You must have at least 6 months as Reiki Master Practitioner (a copy of your certificate may be requested)
