From students to police officers, some from spiritual backgrounds and professions, others are 9-5 office employees, health care workers, and pensioners… a whole variety of people are pursuing their passion to become Reiki Practitioners in the pursuit of sharing the gift of complementary therapies (including me!)… Here’s how and why you may want to train to be attuned as a “Reiki Teacher” at a specialist Yorkshire healing school.  


  • Reiki Training: What does it involve? 

  • “How do I Become a Reiki Practioner or Master?” 

Whether you’ve received distant energy healing in Lockdown or been provided with in-person Reiki in the past, there is now no time like the present to pursue your passion with Beyond Healing run by Priscilla Heyer and Mark A Whitmore who were attuned together. 

We both knew about Reiki way before we got attuned. Mark was an intuitive healer and Priscilla had friends who were attuned to Reiki and always had been interested and open to alternative therapies.

Mark and Priscilla are Reiki Masters registered with the Reiki association and can therefore show trainees the correct pathway to respectable insurance and potential work within the NHS and healthcare systems. 

“The attunement process was the next logical step for the both of us to be able to practice healing in a more structured/regulated way. 

“It was a very powerful and beautiful experience but also part of an ongoing healing process that we all have to go through and that never ends!” 


What is Reiki Attunement? 


Reiki attunement is an experience that the vast majority of participants find to have a significant impact on their lives. The process initiates a connection to an ancient and comforting energy, and attunement itself feels like a reintroduction to something you have had a deep connection with your lifetimes past. 


“Your connection with nature will receive a boost, the purity of nature feeling more palpable, and the unbridled beauty even more breathtaking, this takes place as your body and energy system slowly adapt to the initiation and continues to impress the more that you do your self-healing.”


  • By far the most common reaction to the attunement process is a state of wonder and awe, along with the physical reactions that are reported, a few examples are lots of heat, surges of energy, and sweaty palms. 
  • Many people report beautiful visions and experiences during and following their attunement. 
  • By contrast, other people almost immediately connect with a sense of peace that brings a new level of quietude to their soul. 
  • Reiki is a great aid in taking responsibility for your own health and is an important part of the healing toolbox, but it does not instantly eradicate existing problems, however, it does help you to gradually and peacefully address any problems you may have from a holistic perspective. 
  • Reiki is an amazing complementary therapy and works best alongside a complete range of treatments for more deep-rooted issues.


What happens after Reiki “teacher training?” 


The day or days of attunement are just the start, and the true teacher is the Reiki itself. The more you work with energy, the more capable and comfortable you will become with this beautiful healing art. After initiation, there is a 21 day detox period, (it is also very helpful to detox prior to the attunement), but if you already eat a healthy and balanced diet then cutting down on heavy foods such as red meat or processed foods and drinking plenty of water can help. 

During this period we advise that you do not perform any reiki treatment in order to let things settle down and distribute evenly. 


“After 21 days though you can Reiki the living daylights out of anyone from your family and friends whose permission you can attain!”


How do I become a Reiki Practitioner? What training or experience do I need? 


Attunement is for life, once you are attuned, it can never really go away, and even after a period of inactivity, there are ways to kickstart the Reiki and get yourself healing again. 

Self-Healing as a Therapist  


From experience, I have found that one of the most important factors is to stay on top of self-healing (this is basically giving yourself Reiki every day), all the way through detox and for the rest of your life. It is a pleasurable and relaxing experience that takes no effort, and the benefits are many.


We always recommend after detox that you try and get as much experience as possible actually working with Reiki energy, and take extra care of yourself spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and energetically. There are many ways to do this and we discuss it in depth during the course. One way is to memorise the 5 Reiki precepts, this is an excellent technique to help you to start your days on the right foot, there are a few different interpretations of this and I have included one below: 


Just for today do not anger

Just for today do not worry

Just for today, I will be grateful

Just for today, I will respect every living thing

Just for today, I will earn my living honestly

Reiki attunement can be a life-changing experience and if you are considering taking this path we hope this article helps you to take the right direction.

We run regular Usui and Angelic Reiki attunements up to Master Teacher level.

Our Next Angelic Reiki attunement to levels 1 & 2 is taking place on June 5th and 6th, and our next Usui Reiki attunement to levels 1 is taking place on July 3rd.
