Student Teaching (Practice teaching classes with supervision)

Pre-requisite: Shinpiden Reiki Master Certificate or Reiki Master Shinpiden Certificate or Shinpiden Certificate from International House of Reiki lineage or close lineage.

Come practice teaching others the skills you have learned and offer reiju and attunements to students enrolled in the class. There must be at least one student in the class for you to teach along with Myra Reichel for class to run.

You will be retaking the class to get experience teaching others doing introductions showing hand positions, leading meditations before and after attunements, doing reiju and attunements for students, helping with sessions and set up and putting away after class.

You will be focused on the new students taking the level you are student teaching but Myra will be paying attention to both how you are presenting and encouraging you or providing what might be left out and be focused also on the new students taking the level for the first time.

Student teaching is a great way to practice all parts of the Five Elements of Reiki as taught in the International House of Reiki lineage.

Please contact Myra Reichel at 610-348-5698 to let her know of your interest and availability to student teach and check in to see if students have signed up for classes scheduled at those times.

Since you are already Shinpiden level, able to do reiju and Attunements, ask if you can join Myra during the portion of Reiki Master Shinpiden or Shinpiden Reiki Master scheduled classes to help demonstrate and receive reiju and attunements during classes.
