Shaman, Illumination Reiki™ Master Michelle Hawk teaches classes with her mother, Rosemary Levesque, in Portland, OR.
In addition to our traditional Usui Reiki classes, we offer a complementary program focused on helping you expand your practice with intuitively channeled practices, symbols and Shamanic energies. This program connects you with the principles of Universal Shamanism and offers ample opportunities for you to learn, explore different traditions of healing, ground your work in Earth energies and expand your practice. Your journey with us includes private and small group instruction, Spiritual retreats and experiences, complete program materials and exclusive mentoring.
Eligibility for Illumination Reiki™ Class Series
Each Illumination Reiki™ class series requires a certain level of Usui Reiki certification. The classes all build on each other, so they must be taken in order. Please see individual class series descriptions for prerequisite information.
The Usui Reiki classes may be taken independently of the Illumination Reiki™ program.
How do I take the Illumination Reiki™ Program?
You may easily integrate the Illumination Reiki™ Program into your training, either concurrently with your Usui Reiki studies or after your Usui Reiki studies. For example, you might take Usui Reiki I and II Classes, then supplement that learning with Illumination Reiki™ Class Series I. Then you will feel fully prepared to take Usui-Tibetan Reiki Master Class, followed by Illumination Reiki™ Class Series II, and so on. Alternatively, you may pursue the Reiki Integrative Training track as far as you like (Reiki I, II, Master and Karuna Reiki®) and then follow up with the Illumination Reiki™ Program.
What certification will I receive?
You will be certified for Illumination Reiki™ (Practitioner level I, II, III and Illumination Reiki™ Master) upon completion of each class series.
Even though the Illumination Reiki™ Program includes a strong component of Shamanic practices, you will not be certified as a Shaman. It is impossible to certify anyone as a Shaman (even though there are some organizations and schools that claim to do so). Being a Shaman is a life calling, and how could we certify you for that? You will, however, receive training in Shamanic energies and traditions which you may choose to incorporate into your personal and/or professional practices. You will find that integrating Shamanism with your Illumination Reiki™ practice is a natural, comfortable fit.
