Training to become a Reiki Practitioner does not require long study. In Holy Fire®, the ability to use Reiki is transmitted to the student by processes called Placements (for Levels 1 and 2) and Ignitions (for Reiki Master). The student can then access Reiki. A Reiki initiation is a powerful experience and comes as part of a training class that teaches the knowledge appropriate to the level sought by the student. A Reiki initiation is for life. Once you have it you cannot lose it. While additional Advanced Reiki and Reiki Master Ignitions are necessary if you plan to teach, they are not required in order to use Reiki for yourself or share it with others.

There are three levels, with the highest being Reiki Master. Dr. Bates offers classes for all levels of practice. If you have any questions or would like more information you may contact Dr. Bates directly at or (630) 464-1668
