The Holistic Caribbean

The secret is out, almost everyone knows this from ages ago that the Caribbean is one of the best places to lead a holistic life. There are many natural therapeutic attractions and places in the Caribbean. Dominica is known for its wonders with steaming valleys, and the world’s 2nd largestboiling lake along with 365 rivers rushing to the ocean.St. Lucia has some magnificent waterfalls with oxygen-rich waters which can reduce stress, improve breathing and revitalize your body. You may also recall that Montego Bay’s claim to fame is from the therapeutic Doctors’ Cave Beach which had done wonders. In the 1920′s, Sir Herbert Barker an English osteopath, visited the beach and was impressed by the curative powers of the waters. He then wrote an article on his experience which catapults the beach and  Montego Bay to its glory. The list is very long, but it is safe to say that most of the islands do have a natural resource that is believed to have some healing property.




The fruits and vegetables available in the  Caribbean have contributed significantly to the longevity of the people. From the farm directly to the table is in true effect. Many of these islands are quite small and so distribution from the farms to the supermarket is quite fast due to the short distance. The climatic conditions also allow one to have many fruit trees that produce without the aid of any synthetic fertilizers or other harmful chemicals.

The slower pace lifestyle in tranquility does wonders for the mind, body and soul. To have a holistic lifestyle a peace of mind is very important. The Caribbean tends to give this peace of mind because of the simple lifestyle that one can lead and still be comfortable. The warm climate all year round, the sweet sounds of birds chirping in the mornings can’t be under estimated. While the lush green mountains help to keep the balance.

The people from the Caribbean are lucky, their natural lifestyle is holistic. If one just understands this, appreciate it and make a bit more effort they could be living the type of life that millions can only dream of.

Chinese Old Man Drinks Gasoline as Medicine

We all know that gasoline has been used to power vehicles and machinery all around the world for decades. However, the 71-year-old named Chen Jejun has proved that this sticky liquid also works very well for humans by drinking it for 42 years because he thinks that gasoline can help to relieve his physical pain.

Chen Jejun lives himself in a thatched cottage on a hill in Shuijiang township, Nanchuan district of of Chongqing municipality in the southwest China. Known by local people as a stone cutter and master bamboo weaver, Chen Jejun is also famous for his unusual habit of drinking gasoline. The short and bony man estimates that he drinks about 3 to 3.5 liters of gasoline each month.


The 71-year-old Chen Dejun has drunk around 1.5 tons of fuel over the last 42 years for medicine

Chen Jejun said that he buys gasoline from a station at the bottom of the hill. Although it is not easy to calculate how much gasoline Chen has drunk for over 42 years, it is reported that this old man has consumed around 1.5 tons of this sticky liquid during his life.

Chen Jejun and his daily life

Chen Jejun started the strange habit of drinking gasoline back in 1969, when he suddenly began coughing and felt pain in his chest. Although Chen tried using many medicines, they didn’t seem to help him much. After being advised to try drinking some kerosene by the elders in the village, Chen did it and went to bed. After waking up, he felt much better, and he since became addicted to kerosene. Chen continued drinking the fuel and then he moved on to gasoline in order to relieve the pain.


Doctors said that Chen Jejun has a good health, despite signs of emphysema. However, he will face stomach problems if he drinks too much gasoline

According to doctors, the fuel might just works as an anesthetic. It can’t cure the man’s pain

Cheng Dejun’s wife as well as their three sons attempted to stop Chen’s addiction to gasoline. However, their efforts only made the family relations tense. Therefore, Chen moved to the cottage to live alone 8 years ago. Experts believe that Chen have developed some resistance gasoline, otherwise it should have killed him.

Holistic Leadership


The purpose of this article is to present an integrated model of leadership. I call this Holistic Leadership, one founded upon the premise that each of us must strive throughout our lifetime to become a centered individual who is able to effectively use the four principal components of leadership. Of particular significance is to understand the importance of the whole and the inter-relationships among the components and their elements.

My approach is not to focus on leadership equals position in an organization (i.e., management), but rather to talk about it as being resident in each and every one of us. It’s important that any discussion on leadership be integrated with individual, team and organizational learning. Although an effective leader must be able to adjust her style to the circumstances and people she leads, this must also be done in the larger context of a learning culture.

So what is a learning culture? To paraphrase Peter Senge (The Fifth Discipline), a learning culture exists when people collaborate to create their own future. From my perspective, this means that leadership must be shared if this is to indeed happen, and that people must work continually towards becoming holistic leaders.

Why All the Fuss?

The roles that people (managers and staff) play in today’s organizations have become much more dynamic. They face greater complexity in their work environments as a result of the evolving and more sophisticated needs of clients; growing interdependency in the global economy; technological change; changing organizational structures and work processes; an aging population, and fiscal pressures. For those in managerial positions, these individuals must not only be able to respond to the needs, values and aspirations of their staff, they must also anticipate changes in the future.

To help their organizations thrive in a rapidly changing economy and society, everyone must practice some form of leadership. While working in a collaborative manner with co-workers is key to helping their organizations succeed in the 21st Century, enhancing one’s personal leadership is critical, and this requires self-discovery and self-awareness.

In his book Principle Centered Leadership, Stephen Covey stresses the importance of people achieving balance and greater fulfillment in their lives by following correct principles. Doing so gives people a base for all of their daily decisions. From a leadership perspective, this is especially important because it instills a sense of stewardship, an essential element in effective leadership. As Covey states:

When people align their personal values with correct principles, they are liberated from old perceptions. One of the characteristics of authentic leaders is their humility, evident in their ability to take off their glasses and examine the lens objectively, analyzing how well their values, perceptions, beliefs, and behaviors align with “true north” principles.

The need has never been greater for leaders – at all levels – who are capable of functioning effectively in organizations in which diversity and interdependence have become two major yet opposing forces. This requires new behaviors for leaders if they are to succeed in this new and complex environment. Let’s now look at a model I’ve called The Holistic Leader: The Four Components & Their Principal Elements.

The Holistic Leadership Model

Note: Please visit my website (see the resource box at the end of this article) to view a diagram of the model. Click the button ‘Holistic Leadership’

At the core is the Centred Individual, representing the person who has attained a high level of comfort and competency with the four primary leadership components. One may prefer to see the centred individual as having achieved balance. That’s fine, as long as it’s understood that balance does not mean using the four components in equal measures. Instead, the centred individual is able to seamlessly alter her leadership behaviour to meet the needs of her followers and co-workers under a given set of circumstances.

Because leadership does not exist unless there are followers, it stands to reason that at the core of the issues that demand the attention of leaders is people. This model was created with people as the cornerstone. Moreover, it respects the need for formal, managerial leadership and informal, shared leadership. Both are needed to support one another in an age of uncertainty, paradox, and speed.


Much has been written on the need for leaders to be coaches and mentors. This is indeed essential to their effectiveness. But Teaching, as a key leadership component, is broader, encompassing the learning organization concept. Some writers have used the expression The Teaching Organization in place of the learning organization. Teaching becomes the responsibility of everyone in the organization. It begins from the inside. This is the quest for personal mastery: to continually strive to improve oneself, and in turn to share with others. In essence, we become stewards for teaching, because it is seen in the organization as highly valued and necessary to its long-term success.

To be a “teacher” means being open, both to self-discovery and to the views and feedback from others. Reflection and inquiry are critical if this is to occur, for without them we are not able to slow ourselves sufficiently to explore new meanings and possibilities. Teaching is fundamental to effective formal and informal leadership.


This component is critical to those in management, especially at the senior level. We read in the management literature how managers must posses certain key elements. They need to be visionary and strategic, yet also have a burning sense of urgency to move forward. Furthermore, they must be results-oriented, and to achieve this means that they must be capable of mobilizing people.

That these five elements are essential for effective formal leadership is not in dispute. But what about those people in middle managerial positions, not to mention staff? Little has been written on the need for people at the middle and lower levels in organizations to develop their skills for these five elements. However, they are critical skills to acquire if we wish to see a change in the culture of leadership in organizations.

Peter Senge explains that there are three main types of leaders in organizations. Senior managers are one category. A great deal has been written on this group. The second category of leaders is front-line managers, who Senge says are the most critical in an organization because they connect daily with staff. And the third is what he calls Network Leaders, or what others call Thought Leaders.

All three categories of leaders must interact because they each possess certain strengths. Front-line managers, unfortunately, have not been paid sufficient attention in organizations, with respect to improving their leadership abilities. In terms of the Holistic Leadership model, front-line managers need to ensure that they develop the directing component, because they are the ones who are best positioned to mobilize their staff. But this means that they need to be visionary and strategic, as well as results-oriented.

Network leaders are the seed planters, sowing ideas in their organizations and bringing people together. Their interaction with front-line managers is vital, in terms of reciprocal sharing of knowledge and ideas. And they play a key role in influencing senior management. Network leaders must also develop the elements contained in the directing component if they wish to increase their effectiveness.

Consequently, it’s important that we rethink our assumptions on the directing component of leadership. These assumptions are oriented around power and authority and where they are housed in organizations. If we really wish to see our organizations evolve to embrace collaborative learning and shared leadership, then we need to shed some of our traditional beliefs on leadership.


This brings us to the participatory aspect of leadership. It doesn’t matter what expression is used: shared leadership, participatory leadership, post-heroic leadership, roving leadership, etc. The point is that this component of leadership is critical to helping organizations create learning cultures that are based on power-sharing, inclusion, enrollment, alignment, collaboration, and commitment.

Much has been written on participatory leadership. In both the private and public sectors, it is espoused by senior management as being the new way of working together. However, what is said publicly is often not practiced. This applies not just to management but staff as well. Modeling the desired behaviours that accompany this form of leadership is fundamental to its eventual success. Network leaders, for example, must practice the elements contained in this leadership. Staff, too, need to learn how to collaborate and how to find common ground when conflict arises.

Some time ago, I read an article that talked about the tacit collusion in which employees frequently engage to protect their functional boundaries. Specifically, people follow unspoken norms with respect to staying out of one another’s jobs. When these norms are not followed, conflict typically emerges. The consequence is the “cementing” of behaviours and practices in organizations. When a major change initiative is introduced, senior management becomes frustrated by the rigid silos that have been erected among functional groups, and which in turn contribute to resistance to the change effort.

Participating is an extremely important component of holistic leadership because it provides the conduit to unleashing the potential of people. Again, this is important to those in senior and front-line managerial positions, and also to those who seek to play informal leadership roles.


This component of holistic leadership is one that is only beginning to receive attention. It is what some call the “soft” aspect of leadership. Because it is strongly oriented around relationships and the human dimension, it is not easily quantifiable. Moreover, nurturing is an area that has not traditionally been part of the heroic leadership mindset, and which has been dominated by males.

The ability to show empathy is vital to enhancing our leadership. To be empathetic means to be able to put oneself in another’s shoes, or frame of reference. Stephen Covey, in his book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, speaks of the habit of Seek first to understand, then be understood. This is a difficult habit to learn because it requires us to listen carefully to the other person and to really understand their point of view, all the while refraining from speaking ourselves.

Improving our ability to empathize will in turn enhance our communication skills. Creating meaningful conversations, or dialogues, is essential if organizations are to enhance their collective ability to learn. But the challenge to this is the diversity that is growing in organizations. The holistic leader is able to see the value in diverse needs, wants, beliefs, expectations, personalities, backgrounds, gender, colour, age, etc. Being able to see from a systems perspective the benefits that diversity brings to an organization, and in turn influencing it in a forward-thinking way, is a strong leadership asset.

This leads to the creation of bonds within the organization. The holistic leader has contributed to creating a web of relationships, despite the challenge of addressing diversity in an organization that faces unrelenting change. These bonds, in turn, support collaborative learning and the creation of a learning culture.

The holistic leader understands and pays attention to the need for developing the triangle of spirit, mind, and body. Without daily practice of these three equally important parts, it is difficult to achieve a high state of personal wellness. As with personal mastery, personal wellness starts from within. But the holistic leader also strives to help her co-workers (and staff) increase their awareness of this important element of nurturing leadership. For example, the network leader sows “wellness seeds” in the organization as a way to assist the organization create a healthier workplace: spiritually, intellectually, and physically.


I have attempted in this article to present an integrated model of leadership that is simple in design yet complex in practice. The four components of the holistic leader model are not discrete but rather interdependent. When looking at one part of the model it quickly becomes apparent of the link to other parts. And this is how we need to approach leadership: by understanding the web of relationships among the many elements. If we take the approach that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts, then we will benefit from the synergies that emerge when we work towards becoming holistic leaders.

James Taggart has been a student of leadership for over 15 years, and devoted over a decade to applied work in leadership development, organizational learning, and team building. As a thought leader, he has initiated and led several change management projects. He has also worked as an economist for many years, conducting applied research into labour market issues; carrying out policy research in the areas of science, technology and innovation; and initiating projects focused on industrial competitiveness.

The Vast Benefits of Reiki Treatment

Reiki is a form of alternative medicine which in recent past has gained a lot of popularity due to its immense benefits and results. A practice developed in Japan in the early 1920′s.  It was adopted by many scholars and preachers in order to heal people of ailments. Reiki, a Japanese term, is consisted of two words – Rei and Ki.  These words have multiple meaning in Japanese. Hence considering ‘Rei’ as ‘Universal’, and Ki meaning ‘Life Energy’, on a whole, it translates roughly to ‘Universal Life Energy’.

Reiki is a form of healing that is exercised with the technique of palm healing. It derives its reasoning from the fact that an unseen, supernatural ‘universal life energy’ flows within the human body is the main factor in sustaining lives. Everything depends upon the levels of this ‘universal life energy’. A balanced level causes a person to be happy and live happy, thus offering them a healthy and long life span. Conversely, a low energy force may cause a person to become dull and uninterested in life.

Reiki does not only take into consideration the physical form of a person, but also involves emotional quotients like mental stability, feelings, emotions, and, very importantly, the spirit. A Reiki treatment promises innumerable benefits, right from relaxation, stress reduction, peace of mind, to a sense of complete wellbeing. As it believes in the flow of energy, once undergone, a person may feel radiance throughout his body. All these triggers and acts as a catalyst to the natural healing process.

With the side effects of allopathic medicines being almost endless, Reiki comes in as a safe and natural form of physical and spiritual healing. It’s easy to undergo and effective in curing many known and unknown diseases. What differentiates it from the other known systems is that is works not only with the body, but also with the mind and spirit. When administered with other alternative therapeutic techniques, it can significantly enhance and amplify the complete healing process.

The benefits of Reiki are endless, and the major ones are as below:

- Completely safe and natural

- Uses body, mind, and spirit

- Reduces stress and unknown illness

- Improves body’s self healing capabilities

- Develops spiritual and physical healing

A relaxed human mind is always at peace and has greater ability to fight the distasteful situations that life can put forward. Reiki helps in restoring the overall condition of the body and preparing it to tackle stress in a better way. It’s the best way one can get rid of depression, self pity, self sympathy, and a sadistic approach.

Remember, a strong soul dwells in a strong mind, and a strong mind dwells in a strong body. These go hand in hand for the overall development of a human. Good health always produces a stable personality. So, to live life to its fullest, it is important to be at peace and harmony with the natural elements of life. For all those who see the glass of life as half empty, it’s time to call for Reiki!

What You Need to Know About Reiki

Reiki is a form of healing with the hands that originated in Japan centuries ago. Positive energy transfers from the healer to the person that needs healing. It’s believed that this energy transfer works with the natural healing ability of the body to heal itself.

There are various techniques used in Reiki that restores and balances the life force energy in someone’s body. Reiki is believed to affect the body, mind and spirit of a person. Its literal meaning is “universal life energy” and it seeks to restore a balanced energy flow within a person.

The belief in whether or not Reiki works varies among people. Since it’s used to make someone completely relaxed to enable the vibrational energy flow inside to become unblocked, it’s definitely an excellent way to relieve stress. Any doctor will agree that this is a good thing. Most people admit to feeling very relaxed and serene following a Reiki session.

Reiki and Spiritual Healing are very similar as both require laying on of the hands to perform healing. There are some differences, however. A Spiritual Healer directly touches the person in need of healing. This allows them to use their personal energy and release it into this person. In this process, the healer does all the work and the recipient is passive while taking in the energy.

A Reiki practitioner doesn’t directly touch the recipient in most cases. Instead, the hand is placed just above the person, which lets the recipient draw whatever energy is needed. In Reiki, the recipient takes an active part in the healing.

In most cases, a Reiki Master will suggest a series of attunements. The attunements happen when a healer uses ancient symbols and sounds to attune the nervous system of an individual. This raises the level of energy vibrations.

If Reiki is used long term, energy channels will open and allow you to handle anxiety and stress while restoring the body. Regular treatments are the key to success when using Reiki therapy. Your illness won’t be cured in only one visit. Long term treatments will, however, work in conjunction with any medical treatments. The end result of Reiki treatments is to allow your body to be in tune with itself, thus reducing daily anxiety and stress.

The Benefits Of Reiki Healing

Holistic healing works with the practice of looking after ones health as a whole and not just the physical condition. It gives importance to developing a sense of balance in the mind and the soul, thus creating complete rejuvenation. A common theme in the different varieties of holistic treatments is the great importance that is given to finding the balance between the mind, body and soul. Much of the interest in alternative medicine revolves around reiki therapy that aims at relieving stress in the body.

Considered to have originated in Japanese culture, it signifies impart of spiritual energy through sacred intercession. In fact, the word reiki translates into scared strength. It includes the use of palms to transmit energy for healing purposes. A key feature in reiki healing is creating equilibrium between the two energy forces. Reiki believers subscribe to the belief that the condition of a person in the doldrums will worsen when there is transfer of energy with an animated person.

People go in for reiki healing in order to develop a sense of balance and completeness within themselves as well as replace negative vibes within the body with positive ones by creating a sense of harmony and security with the world.

Treatment involved

There are no specifications that need to be fulfilled in order to take part in a reiki session. In this holistic treatment, the practitioner will rest his hands on the various parts of the body which he or she feels is in stress alleviation. In most cases, the patient is situated in a sleeping position, awaiting the transfer of energy. The healing takes place from the top to down position, with the healers hands moving from the head to the lower half of the body. The hands are suitably arranged to allow maximum transfer of energy.

Reiki Goodness

An important aspect about a reiki healing session is that the healer as well as the patient can gain positive energy and mind relaxation through this healing process. In fact, proponents of reiki state that both participants require active participation for a successful session.

Another reason for the popularity of reiki is that the knowledge can be passed on as an essential part of reiki healing involves the reiki master educating his pupil on the various tenets of holistic healing including the symbols and the hand arrangements during the therapy session. Reiki teachings have three sets of learning in which the first two are completed in a full day session whereas the final one entails a lengthier class that is referred to as attunement. In this event, the student studies the various hand positions that facilitate the unlocking of the head, heart as well as the palm chakras that enable flow of the rei energy.

Reiki Courses, Reiki Classes and Reiki Treatments For Children in Dublin

Parents often attend my Reiki courses so they can share Reiki with their children. The beauty of learning Reiki is that you can give Reiki treatments to family and friends following your Reiki 1 class.

Children usually love Reiki and will ask you for a little Reiki session if they know one is on offer. It has been the observation of many Reiki practitioners that children respond very quickly to Reiki treatments and the benefits they experience from Reiki are many.

Children are less inhibited and more accepting than most adults and they have a natural ability to let go and surrender during Reiki treatments. Parents often comment on how their children have immediate benefits following Reiki.

Practical Tips for sharing Reiki with your Children

If you have completed a Reiki course and you wish to offer your child some Reiki, there are simple tips to help you on your way.

Remember that children have their own little schedules and priorities with playtime and games etc. They also have a different perspective on time to us adults. Anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes of Reiki can go a long way with children.

You can easily incorporate Reiki into the day of your child without making it seem like a formal Reiki treatment. For example you could gently place your hands on your child’s head or shoulders when they are watching TV and give them a few minutes of Reiki.

They will probably comment on how nice it feels, or the warm feeling from your hands. On occasions they will ask you to continue when you take your hands away.

You could also give your child some Reiki last thing at night when they are lying down in bed. Some parents place one hand gently on the stomach of their child while reading them a bed time story with the other hand. This tends to have a very soothing effect.

Using Reiki on Hyperactive Children

Parents have reported that sometimes the best time to give Reiki to a child challenged with hyperactivity is when the child is asleep. You can even beam the energy towards the child, rather than touching the child directly. In such cases have your hands a few inches away from the child.

If your child starts to move or wriggle in their sleep as you are giving them Reiki, I would encourage you to cease the Reiki treatment. Such movement is commonly an indication that the child has enough or does not desire Reiki energy. If you continue, your child just might wake up from the sleep state.

Reiki has been received well by children challenged with Autism and learning difficulties

Reiki has been used by parents and practitioners on children with learning difficulties and children challenged with Autism. The results have been very encouraging. Most parents comment on the calming effect it has on the child and how it helps ease the tension in the home environment.

Always approach the child from a position where they are comfortable with you. If the child does not like being touched, you can beam the energy instead.

Sharing Reiki with your Baby

Babies have their own ups and downs and there are times when they are glad of some Reiki. Teething is a great example of when Reiki healing can come in handy. I am not saying that it will ease the pain totally, but it can take the edge of it. Hold the baby like you normally do, and with one hand, beam the energy towards the area where the teething is taking place.

The same strategy applies for ear aches. Just beam the Reiki energy with one hand toward the effected ear, while you hold your child with the other hand.

Colic is another challenge that has been eased with Reiki. Rub your babies back and stomach like you normally do. However, stop every now and again and allow the Reiki healing energy to flow out your hands to your baby.

If your baby starts to move and wriggle as you give them Reiki, it means they do not want energy healing at that moment. This is their way of saying no thank you.

We must always respect the wishes of our babies and children when it comes to whether they wish to accept Reiki energy healing or not.

Teaching Children Reiki

Children can easily use Reiki on themselves once taught what to do. I facilitate short Reiki classes and courses for children a few times a year.

Reiki Training ,Reiki Courses and Reiki Teaching in Ireland

Are you confused about the different types of Reiki Training in Ireland?

Every where you go,Reiki training is advertised. There has been confusion about how Reiki training in Ireland is structured, the format and content that should be included in Reiki classes, and the general standard of Reiki teaching being marketed.

Reiki teaching in Ireland does not undergo statutory regulation. This explains the lack of uniformity in all level s of Reiki courses available.

In 2002, I co-founded Reiki Federation Ireland (RFI). This is an organisation that promotes high standards of Reiki training and Reiki practice in Ireland. Anyone who has attended a Reiki 1 course can join RFI. Reiki practitioners have the option of being listed on the RFI Reiki practitioner listing.

While Reiki Federation Ireland asks all members to adhere to their guidelines, they are not a regulating body. Therefore, RFI does not accredit Reiki practitioners or teachers in Ireland. I encourage people to do their own due diligence on any Reiki training they might be considering before committing to a Reiki course.

I have been involved in teaching Reiki in Ireland since 1996. During that time I have witnessed the growth and popularity of Reiki in Dublin and other towns across the country. I have also observed the many different types of Reiki being marketed and the tendency of some facilitators to include concepts and techniques in their Reiki courses, which in essence have nothing to do with Reiki. This can prove very confusing for the general public.

In their constitution, Reiki Federation Ireland does their best to draw the distinction between Reiki and other therapies being offered. They clearly state that if their members are practicing or using other therapies with Reiki, that they must be clearly stated. The paragraph below is taken from the constitution of RFI.

‘RFI does not recognise any other therapy (e.g. Angel therapy, Crystal therapy) as part of the Reiki system of healing. While these therapies are sometimes used in conjunction with Reiki, it is imperative that the client and Reiki students are informed of the clear distinction between Reiki and other healing modalities. Reiki is an individual healing art in its own right.’

How many Reiki Courses do I need to attend? Reiki 1 training in Ireland

The first level of Reiki training is a Reiki 1 course. All of my Reiki classes in Dublin are taught over two days. This is considered the standard time frame for Reiki 1 courses in Ireland. Some Adult Education colleges offer evening Reiki 1 classes which are taught over a period of six to eight weeks. I have a preference for the two day option.

Under guidelines for Reiki 1 training Ireland you should be taught how to do Reiki on yourself and be shown how to offer Reiki to other people. It is important that participants are given adequate time to practice Reiki on each other. Reiki explained as an energy therapy, the benefits of Reiki and the history of Reiki are among topics to be included at this Reiki 1 course.

If you just wish to enjoy using Reiki on yourself, it is not necessary to attend further Reiki courses

Reiki 2 Courses in Ireland

A Reiki 2 course is open to anyone who has done Reiki 1, and who has an interest in deepening their understanding of Reiki. The standard time for a Reiki 2 course is two days. My Reiki 2 classes in Dublin are facilitated at weekends.

In traditional Reiki, participants are introduced to three Reiki 2 symbols which look like kanji. It is understood that these have their own vibration and frequency. The Reiki teacher instructs the group on how to integrate these visual aids to empower the Reiki energy. Reiki as an energy therapy is also expanded upon at this level of training.

Reiki Federation Ireland has guidelines for topics that should be included at this level of training. I call this module, the Advanced Practitioner Reiki course. All such Reiki classes facilitated by me are held over two days.

This level is open to anyone interested in evolving their understanding of Reiki and to those planning on doing Reiki treatments professionally. Further information on course content can be found on my website.

Reiki 3 Training and Reiki Teacher training level

Traditionally, the final level of Reiki training is known as Reiki 3. I offer a weekend Reiki 3 course in Dublin or people who wish to attend this level exclusively for their own self development. Participants who attend receive the Reiki 3 Master symbol. I do not show participants how to attune others to Reiki at this weekend course.

In my module of Reiki training, if you wish to learn how to attune others to Reiki and how to facilitate Reiki classes you must attend the Reiki teacher training programme. This is taught over a period of months on a part time basis. During the programme participants attend and observe all levels of Reiki training courses. They are also given a comprehensive training in how to facilitate Reiki classes. Each attendee is shown how to attune others to Reiki and is given the Reiki 3 Master symbol.

It is not necessary to attend the Reiki 3 weekend course, if you plan on doing the Reiki teacher training level.
