What if I don’t plan to Teach Reiki but I’m Curious – Is it beneficial for me?

The primary reason for taking the Teacher’s level is to set out on the journey of teaching Reiki to others, however, I’ve had numerous students who take the Teacher’s level out of pure curiosity and are glad that they did.  The Teacher’s level gives you the full perspective on Reiki.  You also gain a deeper appreciation for Reiki and greater confidence.  And best of all you’ll be empowered to attune others to Reiki.  Perhaps you’ll teach Reiki to a friend or family member and in doing so change someones life!

On a personal note:  when I took my Reiki classes in 1997 and 1998 I thought I thought I’d teach a few people I had no idea what would unfold.  Reiki is such a gift to share with others and you’ll have it always.

* Note:  A recommendation for utilizing my manuals for professionally Teaching Reiki is six months of practice.  Only students that take the Reiki Teacher’s class with me can purchase pre-assembled Reiki class manuals.  Prices of manuals can be found here.

Prerequisites for the Reiki Teacher’s Course

In order to take my Reiki Teacher Training course I require taking at least one other level with me.  This is essential because my style of teaching Reiki classes is just as, if not more important then the knowledge/informational component of Reiki.  I’m a highly experiential Teacher and have a skill at creating a safe, sacred, grounded and tremendously healing space for classes.  At the same time there is a lightness and levity that I create.  You’ll discover your unique style of teaching Reiki so that your gifts and your authenticity shine through. You’ll also learn how to begin teaching others Reiki.



Materials & Optional Extras

  • Each level of Reiki comes with my corresponding Reiki Manual.  These manuals are not available elsewhere.  Those that take the Reiki Teacher’s course with me can purchase my manuals for use in their classes.
  • You will receive a Certificate for the levels of Reiki completed.
  • You also get a Special Discount for my Journey Through Reiki 5 CD set.  This significant discount will be offered in class.  Journey Through Reiki contains 5 hours and 20 minutes of Reiki audios including:  Three Guided Reiki Self Treatments, Three Guided Reiki Treatments for giving Reiki to others, Two Educational audios and One Hour of Reiki Music.

What levels of Reiki is it best for me to take over the weekend?

US News World Report Reiki

Reiki Being Practiced –  Hands Above the Body

I offer all levels of Reiki in one weekend.  Reiki I and II are taught together because they naturally complement one another.  Some out-of-state students find taking the full intensive ideal because they are traveling in for the courses or because they are catching my Reiki classes on my tour.  Others feel called to take the entire weekend.  If you have any doubts you can take just Reiki I/II to begin with.  Alternatively if you sign up for the whole weekend or Reiki I, II and Masters and at the weekend workshop decide you’d rather take some time between levels you can just let me know and I’ll refund the difference and you can register to complete the classes in the future.

Reiki is Amazing

Reiki Class NYC 2015

Reiki is a wonderful gift  you can give to yourself and to others.  I have witnessed many transformations with Reiki and have compiled these Reiki Stories for you or Read Testimonials from my Reiki students.

I began practicing Reiki in 1997 and teaching Reiki since 1998 and teaching meditation (Chopra Center Meditation) since 2004.  This is my full time occupation. During this time I’ve given countless Reiki treatments and have taught over a 1000 students the wonderfully healing art of Reiki.  I continue to be amazed by Reiki again, and again.

In 2016 I’ll be teaching at my home base of Rochester, Michigan (I moved here January of 2016) and also in Denver, Colorado.   I’m incredibly grateful for the amazing people I meet on this journey.  Reiki is transformative in and of itself and from all the feedback I’ve received over the years….you can be confident if you take classes with me that you’ll have an experience that surpasses your expectations.


Lisa Guyman - Leading Meditation at Wanderlust Copper 2013

Teaching at Wanderlust

My Training in Reiki, Meditation and other Energywork

My interest in spirituality began long before my training in Reiki.  I began meditating at the age of 16 (independently pursued meditation) and attended Maharishi International University at 19 where all students and professors practice meditation.  I attended the University of Michigan and received a bachelors degree in Psychology.

My journey specific to Reiki began July 16th, 1997 when I took my first course in Reiki.  I had previously taken courses in Therapeutic Touch, Touch for Health, and Polarity Energy Therapy when I was in massage school. Right after taking my first degree Reiki course I began seeing Reiki clients on a regular basis and was amazed at how powerful Reiki was.

I continued my training with Reiki over the next six months (taking Reiki II- August 16, 1997; Reiki Masters – October 18, 1997 and the Reiki Master Teacher Training- January 21, 1998 and Karuna Reiki Masters – March 6, 1998).  I subsequently was attuned to the system of ARCH healing by Laurie Grant.

I’ve continued my exploration with energy medicine and holistic healing through training in cranialsacral therapy, Kwan Yin energywork, and training and certification in hypnotherapy, in Primordial Sound Meditation (as introduced by Deepak Chopra), Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga Training (with The Chopra Center), Yoga Nidra Training as well an energy medicine class with Donna Eden, and an Emotional Freedom Technique/EFT training with Gary Craig and Nick Ortner.


Reiki Certification

When you attend on of my Reiki Workshops you receive a certificate covering the levels you elected.  I presently teach in Colorado, Michigan and New York. To my knowledge there are not licensing laws in these states regarding Reiki, however please research your state, city and county regulations to be sure.  Also if you are coming from out-of-state check you local laws to see if there are licensing requirements or further training required to practice Reiki or massage therapy laws in your state that regulate Reiki.  In Colorado there is a regulation that requires a client information/disclosure form to be filled out by clients and copied for the client.  California has a client information law as well.  In my Reiki I manual I have additional information.

International Association of Reiki Professionals

For added credibility you can join an international association of Reiki practitioners i.e. the International Association of Reiki Professionals (  Upon receiving your certificate of completion from Lisa Guyman you can register with the IARP.  Membership is approximately $149 per year.  A $10 discount is available if you use Lisa’s registration code LG562.  Also the IARP does provide a variety of forms you can use in your practice.


If you wish to practice Reiki professionally you may also opt for liability insurance coverage.  You can find links to insurance companies through the IARP.  If you see clients/practice out of your home you’ll need to get an additional rider to your homeowners insurance policy.


Comments/Testimonials from Students at Lisa’s Reiki Workshops: 

My experience over the 4 day workshop with Lisa was awesome!  It was quite intense, yet, profoundly healing and informative.  Lisa’s meditations before the attunements were incredible.  Lisa’s supportive and accepting demeanor in class was so appreciated.  Lisa made it very comfortable to share information and ask questions.  I have taken Reiki I and II 4 times and this was the most rewarding Reiki workshop I have had the honor to attend.  Thank you so much, Lisa!    (Linda – Ann Arbor, Michigan).    August 2014.

“I wanted to take some time and express gratitude for the wonderful Reiki class I attended.  I just really appreciate your spirit and am very blessed that you love to teach the class.  I know on a personal level it has really changed my life and I’m can only guess how many others it has changed.  Much growth has occurred for me and I thank you for your part.”  (Debbie – Aurora).

“Lisa is very gentle, passionate, and present. She offers an intimate and engaging experience in her Reiki workshop, through guided meditations, intuition-building exercises, and hands-on practice with other students. Lisa’s workshop was energizing, intriguing, and relaxing, and the weekend provided me with a deeper understanding of Reiki.”  –Bryan Clark, Facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie

“I just wanted to thank you one more time for teaching the Reiki. It has made a tremendous difference in my life.”  (Paula – Denver).

“A year ago in April 2013 I took your course, and can honestly say it profoundly affected my life.  The best way I can describe it is an awakening of my spirit, an uplifting of my soul and an awareness that I am so much more that I ever imagined.  Thank you for being a part of my life path, I consider you an invaluable guide in my journey.”  (Genevieve Wolfgram – Michigan)

A Reiki Master/Teacher Student on Teaching Reiki after my Training:  “It was AMAZING!   I feel so blessed to be able to share what I have learned and experienced over the years.  Your manuals are so wonderful.  I got out all of my manuals from taking so many Level Ones over the years and your manuals are exactly what the Reiki world needs.” — Cindy (Ohio).

“I truly enjoyed taking your Reiki classes.   I feel a change in my sensitivity and have had an opportunity to work with my family and friends since the workshop.  The feedback I’ve received is that there is a ‘big’ difference in my energy work.  I personally feel much more energy in my palms and fingertips and have even experienced an easier time entering and maintaining stillness.   You are an excellent role model and teacher — grounded, centered, and kind with a no-drama demeanor.   Thanks for a great workshop experience and opening to Reiki.” —- Vicki, M.D. – (Colorado).


“After receiving my Masters attunement from Lisa I found that the amount of energy that I could channel was greatly increased and the tools learned in the class along with free form Reiki techniques gave me additional tools that I can use in my Reiki practice. This class is a must take for anyone who plans to see clients for Reiki treatments! Thank you Lisa for your knowledge and awesome teaching skills.”  Bill E. (Michigan).

“Thank you so much for such an amazing weekend Reiki workshop experience.  As I said Monday, it far surpassed my expectations.  I appreciate how honest and present you are in the classes- it is evident that you are full of love and  truly care about those you are teaching.  Anyone would be blessed to have you teach them Reiki.”  (K.C. – Colorado).

“I really appreciate your approach to teaching (and life!)  You seem to make the knowledge just slide into place and settle gently around the soul.”  (Connie – Colorado).

“I think it’s such a gift that while healing others I will be able to heal myself.  Funny how that really wasn’t even my intention, but it worked out perfectly because I feel I really needed this.  I KNOW my spirit has brought me on this path and I am very thankful I was lead to you!”   (Crystal Chavez- Colorado).

“I wanted to thank you so much for your classes.  I have already been using Reiki on my homebound patients, and I am amazed. I am so new to Reiki that I thought it would be awkward, but I have offered it to all my patients. and even though I only seem to fit 5-10, or 15 minutes during my treatment time, they seem to feel the energy, heat and sometimes even colors  I am still amazed.  Guess i will start writing it down.  I am so glad that I bought the CDs, too!  You have the most Soothing voice I have ever heard!!!  Thank you.”  (M.B. – Michigan).

“Thank you for teaching me the next level in Reiki because it has been guiding me in new and happier ways in my life.”  (Jason – Longmont).
