“Reading the sacred texts was the best part! I couldn’t understand them myself but reading them together… they changed my life giving me tools of self love, my understanding of life and death and how to be healthy and positive and free. It was so therapeutic and now I have these tools the rest of my life.”


-Allison, graduate 2021

She honors your energy and understands learning styles + energies so she can provide the best education for you. In addition, often times people who take this training do not have friends or people in their life where they can talk about energy + these sorts of topics. This community makes you feel understood + heard in this area of life that is often misunderstood or just ignored. As part of this close-knit community and direct focus and attention from Shawna, you will have the opportunity to learn, practice, and help others within a supportive network of those who like to talk about and learn about energy work + all that is related along with your internationally recognized teacher.

“I have always been sensitive. I dealt with anxiety + depression. This training transformed my life. It made me understand myself, who I am and why I was feeling these things. Then I learned how to improve my health. My entire demeanor has changed and I am a different person.  I am balanced + I am happy. I had no idea I was going to get this from this training. I can go on + on listing all the changes in my life + ways I am better. When I say it is life changing, it truly is. The Reiki + Energy work is something I use every day. I cannot picture my life without it now.”

 Everything is energy, yet most of us neglect our energy body. The energy body works like a magnet and is responsible for what we attract in our lives. It is what is responsible for that feeling of "good luck" or "bad luck." For "why is this always happening to me?" or "wow, life is magic and I can create anything I want." It is connected to our feeling of balance that is related to  our mental, physical, emotional, spiritual, collective + financial health. A feeling of lack is connected to an imbalance in the energy body. Having too much energy can feel like anxiety. Having too little energy can feel like fatigue, depletion or depression. This training dives deep into understanding the reality of energy and how it plays a part in your life + the community. It allows you to understand the importance of balancing energy + teaches very simple tools that can be used immediately to make significant changes in your life.  This duel certification program teaches you how to give Reiki to + Energy Healing to yourself + others. Reiki is a Japanese form of energetic healing. Learning Reiki is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself and the world. Level 1  focuses  first on learning how to use energy for your own well being and provides assignments + opportunities to practice this. We then process into Level 2 where the focus is on the collective and how to navigate the energies in the world while helping others who are interested in receiving Reiki. You will graduate prepared with a regular Reiki routine for your own self-wellness and awareness while certified to give Reiki sessions professionally to others. The training cannot be split and Level 1 + 2 must be taken together. Even if you do not want to start a Reiki or Energy work business or give it to others, the Level 2 course will deeper your understanding and expand your practice. It is not required for you to give Reiki or Energy work to others when graduating but practicing this skill in class   is necessary for your progression + understanding of the skill. 


 We are all energy so anyone and anything who is made of energy is invited to take this course. This is the first of a 3 series of certification courses in Reiki and Energy Nedicine. There is no prerequisite. It is open to all.  This course lays the ground work for the rest of the series of classes in the Reiki + Energy Work Facilitator Certification because it teaches  how to give Reiki to yourself (Level 1) + how to give Reiki to others  (Level 2) while preparing you for a mastership course on  refining your skills (Level 3)  + leading or creating your own certification program and teach and certify others (Level 4).
