Reiki Master/Teacher training
One of the first healing modalities Rebecca was introduced to was Usui Reiki in 2005 in the Holistic Health Practitioner Program and she was deeply inspired by her instructor Susanne Lerohl whom she has worked with since then and now teaches alongside. Exploring the practice and philosophy of Reiki has supported Rebecca in navigating and understanding great personal loss, illness, addiction and her questioning of what healing, wellness and life are really
about. Reiki has become a foundational practice for Rebecca and it continues to inform how she practices her other modalities of yoga, meditation and reflexology. She is constantly in awe of how powerful the practice of sharing Reiki with oneself and others can be. Rebecca guides Reiki as a shared meditation practice and believes no matter ones spiritual belief or background everyone can benefit from this practice. Rebecca experiences Reiki as the art of paying attention, deep relaxation, shared meditation, connection and an exploration of what it means to practice surrender.
Susanne was first introduced to Reiki by Gail Ward in 2000 at MacEwan University, where she graduated from the Holistic Health Practitioner Program. Reiki quickly became both her passion and strength, guiding her on a sacred and beloved journey
into the art of mindfulness and shared meditation. Susanne travelled to Japan – the
birthplace of Reiki – to gain greater understanding of Japanese culture. While in Japan,
Susanne had the honour of studying under Hyakuten Inamoto, a renowned Japanese
Master and Buddhist Monk. Through this teaching, Susanne came to appreciate the
differences between Eastern and Western styles of Reiki. Susanne was privileged to
teach Reiki in the Holistic Health Practitioner Program at MacEwan from 2005 to 2014.
As an instructor, Susanne collected knowledge regarding the researched benefits of
Reiki and meditation, which continues to expand with her personal practice and the
shared experiences of Reiki with students and associates. Reiki continues to deepen
people’s meditation practice and support people’s ability to connect with others.
Susanne genuinely hopes you’ll fall in love with Reiki too.
