At the same time, each group of students brings their own energy, understanding, and expectations to the table. No two lessons are ever quite the same.
Dr. Smith began his career working in the scientific arena and later transitioned into alternative healthcare. He is adept at discussing concepts from both Eastern and Western perspectives. This is quite helpful when introducing students to new and foreign concepts.
If you choose Dr. Smith as your Reiki Instructor, prepare to have your mind blown. He will help you gain an understanding of energy work based on physics, history and practical application. You will have ample time to practice, feel, discuss and discover your innate ability to work with energy.
You will laugh while being intrigued. You might cry as energy works its way through your body. You will discover a new perspective on your body and the world. Ultimately, you will leave having learned a meaningful tool to use for yourself and if you choose others.
Dr. Smith’s Approach to Reiki
Reiki is classically taught in 3-4 modules bases on the teacher’s discretion. Dr. Smith chooses to break his teachings into 3 sections. The first two can be taken in tandem especially if the student is traveling from afar to learn. However, individual practice and personal development is recommended before proceeding further.
