Practical Reiki by Alice Langholt

What is Reiki?

Reiki is an energy healing method for stress relief, pain relief and better health. It’s a natural, holistic way to bring your mind, body, emotions, and spirit back into balance, so your body can heal itself more effectively.

What’s Practical Reiki?

Practical Reiki is a strong, simple way to learn Reiki healing. It’s an “unplugged” approach, which doesn’t require hand positions, symbols, or complicated rituals. Instead, Practical Reiki teaches you how to work with Reiki using a two-step process. You also learn how your intuition works, and how to observe it.

Here is a video about Practical Reiki, and Alice Langholt, who developed this method:

Who should learn Reiki?

Learning Reiki is for EVERYONE!

Regardless of your experience with intuition or energy, you CAN easily learn this powerful energy healing technique that will put healing into your own hands and change your life.

Practical Reiki offers clear, down to earth explanations and analogies that most Reiki classes don’t cover.

  • Learn what energy healing is, how to feel it, and how it works.
  • Learn many ways that you can affect your health and circumstances, and help others.
  • Learn what attunements are and how to give them.
  • Practical Reiki is a resource about energy healing and also the manual for the Practical Reiki method.

Can Practical Reiki really be learned online/ by distance?

Yes! Reiki is life force energy. It’s everywhere and connects us all. Distance healing works, and distance attunements (the transmission of the ability to practice Reiki), are as effective as learning in person. Your teachers are passionately dedicated to your complete confidence and success in learning Reiki, so your learning experience will be effective. Your teachers are there for you for life to offer support, guidance, and encouragement. You won’t find a better program anywhere.

What can I do with Reiki once I’ve learned it?

You can practice Reiki for yourself, for others, open a professional practice, or even teach Reiki! Go as far as your heart takes you! At Reiki Awakening Academy, we offer full support for your Reiki practice, personally and professionally.

Practical Reiki was taught for two summers in Lilydale, NY, as well as practiced at The Cleveland Clinic, is regularly taught in Washington, DC at The Institute for Spiritual Development, and the books are sold in many holistic stores nationwide.

What our Students say

  • This class had a lot of coooool information. This is a great introductory class. So glad I decided to take it! I learned Cleansing, Meridians, how to Find Chakras. I love that there is a place like this where I can learn about things I may not typically look for locally.

    Nicole Kimiko
  • I liked that you could feel Connie’s deepest sincerity in giving the rites. I felt a real part of the ceremony and not just like an observer. There was real power in the class. I learned that there is more to learn and to be open to new experiences.

    Susan Pendleton
  • I liked the flow of the class. The presentation was great. I learned that I want to take the “whole” course… I liked the sneak peeks of the advanced techniques. As an Intro class… it was well done. I can’t think of a way to improve on what was related.

    Jody L. Blackwell
  • “Stephanie’s class was brilliant! It broadened my understanding of the many aspects of meditation and tools that can be used to aid in meditation. The most important thing I learned was that you can fill a library full of books on the information out there about meditation, self-healing through intention, mantras, etc, and you still probably would not have all the information. Part of this is because meditation is such a powerful yet personal action. I would highly recommend this class to anyone that feels they are not meditating properly but want to learn how to be better at it, or just want to learn more about it. The techniques are very simple and user-friendly.”

    Amber Tate
  • I appreciated Connie’s down-to-earth style and sharing more of her personal stories. I now understand how to set myself apart from other intuitive readers in my area and how to ‘set the mood’ so that clients feel taken care of and are receiving a more authentic reading in person.

    Monica J. Foster
  • I loved the teacher, John Soriano. Loved the technique and it really worked. I did this through independent study- it would have been great to have been in the class but the replay was very good – basics covered very well and all questions answered without it being live. I was totally new to meridians and tapping and found learning about these energy points and the tapping technique to be of great interest. The basic technique seems to come natural as practical reiki did for me. I am interested in learning more.

    Mari J Morrison
  • It was great to receive that one on one attention. As always Alice’s classes are not only informative, but fun as well! I learned that we go through life with not only one guardian, but as we grow older another one will come into your life at the right time to guide you along your path. Alice makes learing fun and she treats you as a friend more than teacher/student.

    Debra J. Hewitt
  • This is the first class that I’ve actually taken with Alice and I loved her energy in the class! I have her book on Practical Reiki and had already started doing distance healing with only intention. This class was awesome! I actually saw the invisible person method and that helped me more in my visualization of the method. I had been doing as though the person were laying down in front of me, but the way shown was much easier to scan!
