There are many aspects of Home Study learning that make it better than the face to face workshops.  For many students, these aspects more than compensate for the lack of face to face time spent with the teacher – of course it is not for everyone, but for many it is the preferred way of learning Reiki.


Please note:  Only Level 1 and 2 are offered as a homestudy, if you are looking for a Master class then Elaine only offers this as face to face study.  Also note that some Reiki Associations only accept face to face attunements, so if you are planning to make Reiki your profession, please do your research in your Country of practice.

Benefits of Home study Online Reiki classes:

  1. The Home study classes you can take your time and go at your own pace compared to our virtual or face to face classes, this helps you to build discipline which deepens your Reiki practice.

  2. The home study manual is very comprehensive and the audios and videos are available for you to revisit any time, meaning you can re-sit the class or return to the material whenever you want.

  3. The audio meditations (in Reiki Level 1) are designed to deepen the attunements, which means over the weeks you will find your experience of Reiki becoming stronger and stronger.

  4. Home Study is more affordable (30% savings) as it is free of venue and Teacher costs.  As all the delivery is online we can also pass on manual printing and admin cost savings to you.

Can Reiki be learnt over the Internet?

Home study, or distance learning as it applies to Reiki has long been misunderstood due to the confusion around the Reiki ‘attunements’.  Reiki attunements are what activate Reiki to flow in your system and this does require a real live Reiki Master to carry out the attunement.  However, it does not have to be done face to face.  Much like when we learn to send Reiki at Reiki Level 2, Reiki is not bound by geography, and attunements are equally successful done face to face or via distance.

Our home study Reiki 1 class involves 4 attunements, these are done by Elaine Grundy.  So to be clear, it is true, you cannot learn Reiki if it is solely from a book or you download something from the internet, but the combination of online information, plus distance attunements is what makes these classes effective and powerful.

Who chooses To learn Reiki by Home Study?

  1. Home study is an excellent way for people without access to a face to face class to learn Reiki.  If you live geographically far away from your Teacher it means you can still learn Reiki without traveling to a class.

  2. Maybe there are teachers in your area but you do not feel connected to them.  For many students, learning Reiki from the right teacher is important.

  3. Many of our home study students studied Reiki many years ago but wish to refresh or update their knowledge and they are attracted to our down-to-earth way of teaching but prefer to learn at home rather than re-sit another face to face class.

  4. In our busy world, many students choose home study as they find it difficult to fit in a face to face class in between their home or work commitments.

  5. And others simply enjoy the process of being able to take their time and learn at their own pace!
