Second Degree Reiki

Second Degree training in the advanced energies of Reiki provides the First Degree Practitioner with a quantum leap in Reiki that opens a wide range of powerful applications for healing across a vast spectrum of situations--applications that cannot just be "learned" in the way one studies an academic subject, any more than Reiki can be learned from a book. Rather, the journey is a process of growth in awareness and ability over time with experiences leading the way, then proper instruction explaining the experiences. It is a journey into the energies of life, and the deeper we go into the nature and use of healing energies, the more necessary it is that our paradigms, i.e., our understanding of and belief in the energy that surrounds us and runs through us--in ourselves as Energy Beings--be sufficiently developed so as to understand what we are doing and why. The Second Degree classes at StoneWind are designed to assure students have the fullest possible training in the energies and applications.

Aware of the number of Second Degree practitioners who don't seem ready to use advanced Reiki after one weekend, I have opted for a structure that tracks generally with other traditional masters but provides additional time for students to understand, integrate, and practice the rich scope of Reiki extensions available through this lineage. To this end, I have elected to offer Second Degree Reiki at StoneWind for the traditional fee of $500, but divide the training into two separate weekends separated by days or weeks (sometimes months), with a structured payment option for those who want it. Second Degree, followed by Second Degree Practicum in what we call “combo weekends,” i.e. two weekends in a row, seems to be an effective pacing that provides students a range of options for moving in their own time frame into the level of Reiki practice suitable to each individual. Detailed descriptions of my approach to Second Degree are included at the back of my First Degree Manuals and are available from me on request.

This two-tier learning approach to Advanced Reiki is the gateway to other advanced classes at StoneWind, including those in Context Synergy Healing™ for Practitioners.

Timing between First and Second Degree:
sooner vs later?

The usual waiting period between First and Second Degree in the traditional lineages is 3 - 6 months, a wait-period established by Takata and successive Masters in the traditional lineages because the advanced energies of Second Degree are more easily integrated when the abilities of First Degree have been thoroughly practiced. Traditional Masters have the option of making exceptions to the wait rule on a case by case basis. My Master, John Harvey Gray, did this for me when I originally learned Reiki in 1992. His decision to allow me to take Second Degree the weekend after my First Degree allowed me to heal the major medical issue that had brought me to Reiki, the direct reason I am now a Reiki Master.

As my understanding of what it takes to heal major issues has evolved, I have amended the wait-period requirements between First and Second Degree for my students to be actively in line with the approach John Harvey Gray used with me. Those who want or need advanced Reiki because of serious medical issues, or those who feel energetically ready to move forward, may request to take Second Degree and Practicum sooner rather than later. I will evaluate each individual request as John evaluated mine all those years ago to be sure “sooner” is appropriate, and I will provide a structured payout option that will make the cost manageable.
