Reiki For High School Students

I had the privilege of teaching Reiki to high school students at a local high school in Edmonton from 1999 to 2007 in a holistic health pilot course called Complementary Health.

Reiki is an ancient healing practice that originated in Tibet and was rediscovered in Japan by Dr. Usui in the late 1800s. Reiki is healing with the hands or a laying of hands-on oneself or on others. Reiki symbol

Holistic Health teaches us that the body knows how to heal itself, and energy work can assist us in this process. Reiki is energy work that also initiates or augments ones existing spirituality. Reiki is considered a spiritual path, not a religious practice.

I taught Level I Reiki to high school students in their second year of Complementary Health (30). Students required parental permission to attend this out of school workshop. They received their Level I certification in Reiki.

Reiki for me has been a life altering experience; for many years I feel that I have been trapped…I [now] feel inspired and deeply moved to be a nurturer, to help the world through helping the individual, through helping myself, and I have found a certain peace, somewhat of an assurance that, somehow everything will work itself out for the greater purpose… Reiki has also taught me to know the immediacy of life… my perception has shifted…  (Grade 12 Female student)
