Ruth Anne Mak, Usui Tibetan / Karuna® Reiki Master
A one day class 10am-5pm (or similar hours depending on students’ needs) covering the following:
The fee for Reiki I is $100.00, and this includes a manual, additional written material that I provide, follow up availability via email, telephone, and chat for six months at least, and opportunities to join in free Reiki shares in the Florence area.
One half of the fee is due upon registration and is nonrefundable, but can be applied toward a future class if cancellation is required. I offer the options of class on a weekday for those who work as well. My goal as a teacher is to share Reiki with my students and be there for them after the class is over if they have questions, need assistance with their Reiki journey, or want to move on to Level II, III or Master level.
I offer Reiki II as a one day class for those who have had Reiki I. It can be taken as one day of a I/II weekend, or as a one day class by itself. Class information is provided below. Class fee for Reiki II is $160.00, and I provide lunch and snacks.
I also offer an intensive Reiki I and II weekend consisting of two days of class. The first day you will complete your Reiki I class and receive your Reiki I certificate as described above, and the second day you will receive your Reiki II class and certification as described below. This combination is perfect for those who are from out of town and can’t come to separate classes due to scheduling conflicts or family obligations. If you are interested in a Reiki I/II two-day intensive weekend the level II class would be taught the day after the scheduled level I class unless you need different arrangements.
Reiki II is a continuation of Reiki I with the presentation of more healing techniques and information, and it also includes instruction and attunement with Reiki symbols. Upon completion of the one day 7- hour course students will know how to use the symbols, be attuned to them, instructed in distance Reiki and receive instruction and practice time for treating others.
Reiki II class includes:
The class will be a combination of instruction and practice, and continuing support after class includes Reiki shares for those who are interested. Students are encouraged to practice the skills they learn in class and either join a local share or contact me for distance Reiki practice after class completion. You will be a Level II practitioner when you complete the weekend.
You can take I, II, or both days of this weekend depending on your needs. I also offer Reiki II class separately on a Saturday or Sunday to those who have had Level I.
Class fee for the combined Reiki I & II weekend will be $260.00 with $ $75.00 due upon registration, and this includes a manual, additional information I will add, instruction, attunement, certificates, and ongoing support for at least 6 months after the class. The registration fee is nonrefundable but can be applied toward future classes. My goal is to share Reiki information with my students and help them enjoy the benefits it can bring in their lives.
I will provide a light lunch for the weekend class both days and can provide you with inexpensive local lodging information if you need accommodations. Please contact me for further information.
I offer Advanced Reiki Training (ART) class to those who have completed Level II Reiki class as a one day intensive class or the first day of an ART/Master class intensive. After the ART class completion you will receive an ART certificate and will be ready to take the Master class if you decide you wish to attune and teach others, or to use the knowledge and attunement you receive to practice Reiki at the advanced level if you wish. The one day class includes the following topics and as with all the classes I teach, you may email me for questions or feedback as you travel along your Reiki path.
If you wish to take ART/Master class together, I offer them as a weekend of ART on a Saturday and the first day of a Master class the next day. The second day of Master class would either be the next Saturday or when you schedule it according to your needs. I also offer Master class as a two day weekend intensive, so if you need that schedule please let me know.
Class meets from 10 to 5 PM unless otherwise specified, and I provide a light lunch and snacks. The fee for ART class is $275.00 with $100.00 due at registration. Please contact me regarding this class or the 2-day ART/Master class combination, or you need more information if you have any questions. To register for class, please use our registration form.
I teach this class either as a two day class for those who have completed ART class as an intensive weekend, or as two separate days one and two. At the end of this class students receive a certificate and are Usui/Tibetan Reiki Masters certified to practice and teach all four levels of Usui Reiki. The class includes the following:
The fee for Master class is $300.00 with $100.00 due at registration. All fees or payment arrangements are due by beginning of class date. As with all my classes I offer continuing contact via email after class is completed for feedback, questions, and support. Reiki classes give students the information and attunements needed to embark on their Reiki journey, but my view is that the learning only begins the day of class and continues long after. Therefore I am available to give more information regarding classes and also after class day if students wish to contact me. If the listed dates don’t work for you I am happy to work with you as well.
Karuna is a Sanskrit word used in Buddhism, Hinduism, and Zen. It translates to actions that are taken to lessen the suffering of others and can be translated as “compassionate action”. All beings are one, and the more enlightenment a person experiences the more this becomes obvious to him.
Karuna Reiki ® was developed by William Rand and other healers at The International Center for Reiki Training as he learned many healing techniques and studied under several Masters. Starting around 1989 Rand began using non-Usui attunements and symbols with success and much input from other healers. In 1993 he and the other healers came up with the Karuna Reiki ® system, which uses the symbols that were most effective, and he named the new system in 1995.
Since the energies are higher frequencies than Usui Reiki energies, Karuna Reiki ® Master training is only taught to Reiki Masters with a specific set of instructional techniques, and I can say from my own experience that this is a wise system of instruction. I teach Karuna Reiki ® to those who have been Reiki Masters for at least six months since I am happy to say that it has given me a wonderful tool to aid in healing and relaxation, and I want to share these tools with other energy workers. When I took Karuna Reiki ® training I wasn’t sure what to expect or if it would make a lot of difference in my practice and daily life, but I am happy to say that I have found it helpful to my clients and in my own life in several ways.
As part of the Karuna Reiki® Master class (the second level of class and the day when you are attuned as a Karuna Reiki Master), I also include La Ho Chi training and attunement. This is a very powerful energy that is usually taught separately from Karuna Reiki® Master class (and I also teach it separately if you prefer) to those who have Karuna Reiki® Master level training. I didn’t expect the powerful energy that La Ho Chi brings to my Reiki practice, and I consider it to be the perfect choice for intense pain, inflammation, serious illness, and intense energetic and emotional issue relief. It works well alongside Reiki, and I offer it at no extra fee with Karuna Master® Reiki class because I find that this energy is a perfect tool for those who practice at the advanced energy worker level. If you are a Reiki Master already and want La Ho Chi training only, I also offer it as a separate one day class for a fee of $125.00.
I offer the following classes/workshops that are not all strictly Reiki-based. If you are interested please let me know.
Basic Shamanic Techniques is a one day workshop that is designed to give participants information and practice in shamanic journeying, finding and working with spirit guides, animal messengers, and to give participants guidelines for safety and ethics in shamanic journeying techniques. This workshop is a beginning level workshop and is for anyone interested in enhancing Reiki or other energy work, becoming closer to or finding guides to work with, or learning the basics of shamanic journeying. It is not an advanced workshop and does not teach advanced techniques, but is focused toward those who would like to know more about working with guides, journeying safely, get a good foundation for more advanced shamanic work, and to discover what it means to do energy work with or live more closely with compassionate guides of various types. All are welcome in this workshop and no prior experience is required.
The fee for the workshop is $125.00 and includes a light lunch, a bound manual, and a shamanic journey drumming cd for your use after class.
If you are very sensitive to the emotions and energy around you, feel overwhelmed when people are upset because you feel what they are feeling, if you have a “knowing” of how people feel or feel totally connected to everyone and everything without a clear sense of your own self, if you feel you need to fix people around you or take their pain because you feel it with them and understand it, if being in crowds or in stores with people feels overwhelming to you, or if you already know you are an empath, this class is for you!
Most sensitive people haven’t been taught as children how to embrace and develop their senses in healthy and joyful ways, and since I am an empath who has had to learn how to live with sensitivity I understand how difficult and confusing it can be.
Living Empathically is a one day class designed for those who live with being sensitive or empathic and wish to learn how to cope without taking on the emotions around them, feeling overwhelmed when around others, feeling used or burned out from caretaking due to absorbing the dysfunction or illness around you, or who want to learn how to live a balanced and joyful life that celebrates being sensitive instead of hiding it or being overwhelmed by it. I know how deeply news events, life events, and simple everyday living can affect a sensitive person, and I offer skills that can help you find a balance in your life.
We will discuss ethics, respect for self and others, why taking on others’ pain isn’t a good idea, boundaries, and protection, and students will learn the basic energetic techniques I use in my energy practice to protect myself, not take on energy around me, and how to tell what is our energy and someone else’s. Another wonderful part of this class is that you will meet others who understand how it is to feel the world on a deep level and sense things that others might not, and you can relax and enjoy being in the company of people who don’t see your senses and gifts as odd or intimidating. Please contact me if you would like more information or would like to register for this class.
Please note that those who have taken Reiki classes from me have learned some of the techniques discussed, but this class focuses on skills for joyous living as a sensitive person/empath.
The fee for this workshop is $75.00 and includes a light lunch and written information.
Energetic Health is a one day workshop designed to give participants the tools to keep their homes, businesses, selves, and property surrounded with positive energy. We can bring in negative energy without even realizing we have done so, and when we pick up energy from others we can end up sick or miserable without knowing what the cause is. Just as you wouldn’t want to spend much time in a room where you came in during a heated argument and you can feel the anger still in the room, you don’t want to live in a space filled with negative energy or bring home energy from negative situations you encounter. If you have ever noticed you felt depressed, sad, angry, or lost and couldn’t figure why, you may have absorbed or begun to carry around energy that has affected your life. You don’t have to live that way since it can change how you interact with others and how you feel inside. In this workshop I will show you how to:
The fee for this workshop is $75.00 and includes a light lunch.
Meditation can be for everyone who wants to learn it since there are many types of meditations from which to choose. It can help with stress, and there are other physical and emotional benefits as well. This is a three hour workshop designed to introduce participants to various types of meditations and teach them techniques for each type. Handouts with descriptions and related information are included as well so that participants will have reference sheets to use at home.
This workshop is perfect for individuals, groups, and businesses. I can come to a business, church, or meeting place for groups over 6, and for smaller groups it is in my home.
Included in this workshop are the following:
The workshop fee is $20 per participant up to four people, and for groups of five or more the fee is $18 per participant. Please contact me more information or to set up a workshop.
This class is designed for those who aren't familiar with chakras and want to learn to work with them, but also for those who do energy work and have a basic understanding of chakras. We will go more in depth than we do in Reiki or shamanic classes. We will cover the following topics during this one day class.
Materials include the following:
The class fee is $100 and I provide lunch and snacks. Class usually meets from 10am-5pm, but time can be adjusted if necessary. One half of the fee is due upon registration and is nonrefundable, but can be applied toward a future class if cancellation is required.
