Can Reiki attunements be performed distantly?
Yes, and distance attunements and sessions are just as effective as those performed in person.
Reiki Rays has performed hundreds of distance attunements for students all
around the world, and we do so everyday successfully.
Usui Reiki provides a symbol in Level 2 that allows for performing Reiki, including attunements, distantly.
While there is great benefit in working with a local Master, receiving a Reiki attunement or healing in the comfort of home may
be preferred by the recipient, as you can relax in your own sacred space, free of distractions, and prepare for your experience in your own
These are done without connection to the internet or
telephone, in a silent state, so that you can relax and enjoy while your
instructor energetically does all of the work!
Yes. Reiki Rays Institute received full
accreditation from the International Natural Healers Association in 2005.
We also obtained accreditation from the American Association of Drugless
Practitioners in July, 2003.
There are numerous options upon
completion. Many use their newly found knowledge to supplement other holistic
fields such as massage, chiropractic, or nursing. Others bring their training to
salons and day spas. Several have opened stores and centers of their own, whereas
others decided to give lectures, conduct workshops, or write. Our main goal has
always been to assist others in achieving understanding and personal growth, so
we encourage you to share what you learn here with those called to learn.
Since expanding to the internet, we no longer offer our courses in local workshops or private instruction.

An attunement is the procedure used to pass hidden knowledge of a system or way of like from
teacher to student. This procedure is often done in solitude and silence, and if performed distantly is not done while on the phone or in front of the computer.
Officially, the attunement process is designed to empower the recipient to be able to perform the service or system from that time on.
Nothing is required of the student other than scheduling an appointment and
relaxing using our suggested techniques for the duration of the procedure.
It depends on the course. Our experience has
shown us that the typical student takes 1 to 2 months to complete most
attunement and energy related courses, with holistic courses such as
aromatherapy and reflexology often taking a bit longer to fully master and
absorb the materials. Certification programs, which consist of 5 courses,
often take 6 months, depending on the amount of time the student wishes to
dedicate to his or her studies. However there is no time limit, so you can take
as long as you need and still receive our assistance at any time.
Reiki Rays Institute recognizes many holistic and spiritual healing schools and teachers, and we do our best
to honor your previous experiences. We also understand that many holistic and
spiritual arts are often learned at home, in church, or learned
independently, and we do our best to accept your self-taught skills whenever
possible. We gladly exempt up to 2 courses for our certification program at
no cost to you. We do not however, issue school certificates for classes not studied

Reiki Rays Institute uses email to
send almost all of our course materials, unless previous arrangements for mailed
materials is requested. Manuals are emailed unless you have opted to purchase
printed books for those courses that offer it as an additional charge. Those
books will be shipped directly from the publisher and all purchase monies will
also be collected and transacted by them as well.
When we mail
certifications, we use
the US Postal Service, using first class depending
on its destination. We package our course certificates in flat envelopes packed
with cardboard so they are less likely to bend to preserve your documents.
Please allow 1-2 weeks for
US mailings, and 2-4 weeks for international delivery.
In the case of inclement
weather, national holidays, or other events that prevent postal pick up, we will
resume our schedule on the next business day. We do our best to inform you of
this breaks with an automated message or personalized email.
We cannot be responsible
for goods seized by customs, so we suggest you contact your country's postal
service about their list of restricted goods before enrolling in our herbology
and aromatherapy courses especially.

Unlike traditional four
year colleges that have many requirements, Reiki Rays Institute, as a spiritual educator,
chooses to have as few limits as possible. We expect that our students are legal
age and are willing to expand their horizons. Other than being legal adult age
in their home country and being fluent enough in the English language to be able to read and
communicate with your instructor.
Reiki Rays Institute
issues individual course completion certificates, certification in holistic
health, as well as a degree in Spiritual Health. We do want to be very clear
that our programs are industry accepted but not equivalent in course credit nor
transferable to any community college or four year degree program available at
traditional universities. Our purpose in issuing our documentation is for
personal and spiritual enrichment and to show for achievement and completion of
work. We do not claim to be equal to a vocational school, but many of our
graduates have been successful in working in the industry, as well as opening
their own schools of holistic or spiritual study.
