What’s it like to learn Reiki online?

I taught Reiki in-person for 20 years. Now I offer in-person and online classes.

But can you really learn Reiki online in a Zoom class?

The answer is a resounding yes… I’ve perfected the online Zoom experience and have made it as experiential as my in-person classes.

I wouldn’t have taught online if it weren’t for the pandemic. I’m so glad I was forced into teaching Reiki online.

It’s so powerful and it’s so much fun to have students join from across United States and the world. 

After teaching a couple Reiki classes on Zoom, I figured out the magic of online classes. I’ve now taught over 20 online Reiki workshops and my students have been amazed at how powerful the classes are.

So how do the in-class practice of Reiki treatments work?


Students got set up (if they had a lucky someone to work on that they were on lockdown with) and I guided them step by step in giving a treatment. From my online classes in the past year:

  • Karen (a nurse) worked with her “client” seated.
  • LouAnn gave a treatment while her “client” relaxed on a yoga mat.
  • Anna (a yoga instructor), Kristen (a massage therapist) and Julie (a life coach) had their “clients” relax massage tables.
  • Here’s what Julie’s client had to say (video clip from online Reiki class).
  • Kelly (a nurse and now a massage therapist)  worked on her dog and so did Rachel.
  • Jenny (a spiritual sojourner) did remote/long-distance Reiki on a client.
  • Neil (a professor) learned by pure observation.
  • Kay (retired school teacher) worked on her 95 year old friend.

In my online workshops for the “hands-on” portion of class students have worked on sons, daughters, husbands, wives, friends, siblings, parents, and pets. 

For the remote Reiki students have the benefit of giving and receiving remote Reiki in class. 

We do mini-breakouts too with lots of different Reiki sharing and experiences so you can build your confidence, and connect with classmates and leave you feeling connected and enthusiastic and even WOWed by Reiki.

How about the Reiki Attunements?

I guide you into meditation…and then when it’s your turn to get attuned I say your name so you can notice the shift in energy that takes place. Long-distance Reiki works and long-distance attunements are amazing.

What my Reiki students had to say about their attunements.

How learning Reiki changes lives…

How learning Reiki online transformed her life.


How about the Reiki Teacher class and learning how to give attunements?

You get to watch me to an attunements and then I walk you through how to give an attunement live on the Zoom! And you’ll be giving attunements to one another in class!

The energy in the workshop is palpable and the attunements incredibly deep.

“I truly had a remarkable experience. Beyond my wildest dreams. I’ve been buzzing for days.

I found Lisa online and was honestly hesitant to take the Reiki Master class online via Zoom. I’ve been practicing Reiki in a clinical setting for several years. I was able to experience more deep relaxation through meditation and Reiki in this one weekend then I have in the past 5 years! It was really an incredible experience.

During the gazing exercise, I saw auras for the first time!

I would recommend any class Lisa Guyman teaches!”


After Lisa’s online class I am so passionate about Reiki and can’t wait to use this gift to help others! I love it!

Reiki kept popping up in my life for a while, and Lisa was the first person I was drawn to while researching classes. I was hesitant about the online classes due to covid, but I’m glad I jumped in anyway. Lisa is a very fun, loving, gifted teacher. I have already recommended her to everyone who asks about the class.

Now I know why Reiki came across my path and wouldn’t leave. After Lisa’s class I am so passionate about Reiki and can’t wait to use this gift to help others! I love it!

This is real!

This is absolutely amazing!

I was meant for this! To heal myself, my family and friends. When the time is right, I will change my whole career and do Reiki only. I am so excited.


Here are additional student remarks/testimonials from my Reiki classes online:


“I LOVED IT! It felt like we were in the same room.”


“The energy in the meditation and attunement was palpable.”


“I feel so grateful to be on this path and I know this is what I’m supposed to do.”


“I’ve had a lot on my mind and I feel much lighter now. I feel like myself again.”


“Since the class I have just felt really happy and good. I definitely feel energized and much more joyous.”


“As I’m putting together 2 courses at the university for this next session I so appreciate what you’ve been able to create with Zoom and the community here. It’s not easy. It takes a lot of work and effort. Thank you for making this available to us. I greatly appreciate it.”


“I so appreciated your expertise, patience, and supportiveness. You were excellent at of creating a feeling of cohesiveness amongst the group (in the online Reiki class).”


“The energy in the “room” was incredibly positive and healing.”


“I’ve worked with a lot of energy people. I just really respected the way you come at it in such a humble way with so much  knowledge. I also really appreciated how mindful you were and how you you created such a safe and sacred space for the class.”


“You know I entered the class hesitant about navigating the virtual environment – perhaps even hesitant about the virtual training experience. I now know the zoom classroom didn’t leave me with anything less than a complete training. Actually, it was REMARKABLE how much of the experiential learning can be done with zoom…simply amazing how the reiki energy doesn’t require us to share physical space.”


“I wasn’t expecting to have such a profound experience. The meditation and attunement was even more powerful than what I experienced at your in-person Reiki workshops.”
“I truly appreciate this experience and the Reiki workshops I took last weekend… I am enjoying Reiki so much! Thanks again Lisa, you have changed so much in me.”

Reiki promotes greater calm, peace, well-being, deepened intuition and clarity on the path ahead.

While some student of my students want to add Reiki as a modality to the work they already practice others take Reiki to begin a career in the holistic healing arts – and other are just inexplicably drawn to Reiki.

The beauty of Reiki is that you can start using it immediately and enjoy the impact Reiki makes in your daily life.

You can apply Reiki to yourself, to other people, animals, plants, non-living objects, the  planet and to goals and situations. Reiki is a simple yet profound practice. Reiki will support you in living your fullest life.
