What is a Reiki Session Like?

How do you learn Reiki?
Reiki is divided into four degrees (or levels), and classes are typically taught in weekend workshops. The first three degrees are practitioner levels, while the fourth is the Master Teacher level which prepares you to teach Reiki. Reiki is simple to learn; even children can learn it.
Is Reiki a Religion?
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, no central figure of worship, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. Reiki is as effective on plants and animals as it is on humans.
