What do Threshold Classes Include?
.
.
* All courses can be taken in person or via distant / home based training.

Threshold Reiki
provides a combination of  Western and Modern Reiki and original Japanese Reiki, both techniques and attunements, to allow the student a broader Reiki experience and set of choices. All Classes contain the traditional Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai techniques I learned from Gakkai member Hiroshi Doi as well as additional Western and Japanese methods and information.  For more details click here.

All Threshold Reiki courses include:

  • attunements and techniques in Threshold Reiki and 
  • attunements and techniques in Original Japanese Reiki.
  • a boost to your own personal energy (what I call your Highest Ki.)
  • a detailed manual (unless you use the TreeSaver option.)
  • additional handouts (unless you use the TreeSaver option.)
  • a certificate of completion.
  • private access to the Class Pages at this web site for the levels I have taught you (this duplicates the printed material and allows you to be as current as possible with my material as it is updated.)
  • post class access to Weekly Reiju/Attunements to assist in increasing your Reiki energy and to be current with my own Threshold Reiki energy, plus continued private access to the Class Pages.
  • free re-attunements (distant, in person or via the class pages) - a standard part of original Japanese Reiki
  • permission to sit in (audit) on live classes, at no charge, for the levels you have taken with me (completed Threshold Master level students may do this for all 4 levels.)
  • access to me continually after class, in person or via email or telephone.
In Person Classes (in town) are held in the Vancouver, B.C. area (i.e. Lower Mainland) at all levels. Usually they are held at my location   (9 am - 5 pm) but they may also be at the students residence or in a hall for a large or family group. We take an hour break for lunch - students can bring their own or we can go to a nearby restaurant.  For more information , see my Scheduling Page
Note: some group locations may add a surcharge.

Distant/Home Based classes may begin at any time.

For information on out of town classes, also see my Scheduling Page.


My Certificates
Some people like to see a teacher's certification to teach before they take his training.  If this interests you Click here to see my certificates.



Tree Saver Discount
If you are taking the Distant / Internet Class and choose to use only the Internet class pages for the reference material, you can save on all the Threshold Reiki classes. The on-line class pages duplicate the printed manual and videos, and you can view them on-line at your leisure. If you prefer to work only with the on-line class pages, and not receive the printed manual from me, I will discount the class price. You will still receive a printed certificate upon completion and Master level will receive the videos on CD/DVD.  (Note that paying the regular or TreeSaver fees still gives you access to the on-line class pages.)

Hand placements summary

My focus in the class is to make sure the student understands, and can sense, the Reiki energy they are given a connection to.  I let the class flow with the students' needs, and since all material is also given in their class manual, the student can relax and enjoy the process knowing they can review the material again later at home.  The student also receives access to the Reiki 1 and URR Shoden class pages. 

After the class is over, I invite you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns about what was taught.  Also, you are allowed to join in and review the class at any time.  While I try to be as clear and concise as possible, it is natural for the material to take time to be absorbed by the student.

Requirement:  You will have received Reiki Third Degree (level three) training from me or another Reiki Master.  This can be Advanced Reiki Training, Reiki Master training, Reiki 3a or similar - essentially you will have received the master symbol and attunement and training from me or another Reiki teacher. If you are new to my Reiki classes please provide me with information about your previous Reiki training, and a copy of your Reiki 3 certificate.

The Threshold Reiki Master class is intended to prepare you as a Reiki Master, and also to expose you to Western and Japanese styles of Reiki energy, healing techniques and attunements.  This allows you to better understand the variety of Reiki teaching in the world today, and to help you decide the format you will eventually teach.  Threshold Reiki Masters are allowed to choose the attunements, teachings and methods that best suit them and their students, and thus can teach pure Japanese Reiki, Western Reiki, or a combination of both as Richard does. 

A two day intensive which includes:

  1. many videos showing all attunements and healing techniques (including Reiki 3 Aura surgery).  This allows you to feel like you are there in class - even if you are taking the distant training.  Students find this a great way to refresh their knowledge as well.
  2. an integrated Master level attunement connecting students to the exact Threshold Reiki energy I currently use (this changes daily so I also give my students a way to access this on an ongoing basis).  This attunement (as well as Threshold Reiki 2, and 3) includes stronger Traditional symbol energies I experienced from a Japanese URR Gakkai source
  3. how to duplicate precisely any energy received
  4. how to develop the strength of any energy so that you can present more accurate attunements (few people can initially transmit an energy exactly as received)
  5. a review of the symbols of previous Reiki levels
  6. three Western add-in symbols and several new symbols for comparison
  7. how to give the complete system of Threshold Reiki attunements
  8. the Threshold Reiju Workshop including Japanese Reiki attunements - this includes how to give Doi-sensei's 3 Gendai Reiju empowerments, plus an original Dr. Hayashi empowerment.
  9. how to give a healing attunement
  10. how to give a distant attunement as accurate and as strong as what you may have received
  11. ways to give yourself a self attunement 
  12. how to attune yourself to any symbol or energy
  13. suggested values and attitudes of a Reiki Master/Teacher
  14. lots of practice with attunements
  15. how to set up your own class plans and certificates
  16. a Reiki/Taoist meditation to balance and harmonize the chakras
  17. original Usui Reiki Ryoho techniques
  18. a boost to your Highest Ki
  19. access to a Weekly Reiju web page with a choice of 13 different Reiki energies.  This allows the student to continually receive Reiki attunements at their own convenience, similar to the practice exercised in the original Japanese Reiki society - URR Gakkai.
  20. continuous on-line access to the Threshold Master class pages and manuals so as to keep up to date on changes and improvements. (my manuals change frequently).
  21. At class completion, access to and permission to print the Threshold Reiki manuals for your own live Threshold Reiki classes.
  22. additional bonuses - see below.
  23. Click here to see what all classes include
Completion of this class certifies you as a Threshold Reiki Shihan (Master) and allows you to teach all levels of Reiki to others.

Detailed explanation of Threshold attunements and Reiju

Attunement summaries

This class is the teacher or Shihan level of my Reiki system.  The focus of my Reiki Master class is mainly to ensure that the student leaves class feeling confident in giving an attunement to another person.  To allow for a break and variety during this process, I add in other notes of interest on Reiki history, Western and Japanese techniques, and even access to other sources for healing energy and assistance.  The student eventually learns that attunements are easy, even if different Reiki energies are involved.  Several examples are given. 

I support my Master students indefinitely (as I do all my students) and they receive access to ALL my Threshold Reiki class pages. They are allowed to use all notes in their own classes as well, which helps then to get their teaching practice underway, should they wish to do so.  My Reiki Master graduates may also sit in on any of the Threshold Reiki classes I teach for no additional fee. 

  • BONUS: a copy of a Japanese Reiki book translated into English
  • (not available with TreeSaver option)
     
  • PLUS a CD with videos showing all attunements and healing techniques (including Reiki 3 Aura surgery).
  • (with TreeSaver option, CDs are mailed with the class certificate upon completion)

Many students enroll in this class simply for their own use and to initiate family and friends. 
Please E-mail me (Richard Rivard) with your questions.


Videos showing all attunements

After the class is over, I invite you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns about what was taught.  Also, you are allowed to join in and review the class at any time.  While I try to be as clear and concise as possible, it is natural for the material to take time to be absorbed by the student.
