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

UPCOMING classes

Holy Fire® III

special class series just for current Reiki Practitioners!

September 28 & 29, 2019

October 12-14, 2019

Our next classes are intended for those who are already attuned, who are curious about and interested in Usui/Holy Fire® Reiki. If Reiki is already part of your life, consider exploring the greater intensity and power that Holy Fire® adds. I’ll admit that I certainly started out as a skeptic, but the differences I experienced after the Placements and Ignitions convinced me that this addition to the Usui tradition is a genuine, effective gift for deeper healing with Reiki.

Classes will be held at our home/office on September 28 & 29 (Levels 1 & 2 are taught together in Holy Fire® III); then October 12, 13, and 14 for the Advanced & Master Level class. The Levels 1 & 2 class is required for the Advanced/Master class, in order to be sure each Usui/Holy Fire® III Reiki Master has the complete set of Placements as well as the background in Holy Fire that is part of the first level of training. The only exception would be for someone who has already had the Usui/Holy Fire® 1 & 2 classes, either with me or with another Holy Fire® Master Teacher.

Class size is limited to a maximum of five. There are still openings in both classes, but only two in the Advanced/Master class! Let me know soon if you’re interested!

The cost:

Levels 1 & 2, $450.00
Advanced & Master Class, $800.00.

Early bird (before August 1, 2019) registration & full payment, $375.00 and $725.00.
