About the Event


Join us in Costa Rica for an inspiring retreat, earning your Reiki  Level I & II certification, while enjoying a serene escape, spa  treatments, yoga classes, organic food & more. Cost ranges from  $2,600-$3,300, depending on room type. Click “Read More” below for  additional details.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe Japanese technique for stress  reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered  by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force  energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. It has been  shown to be effective in helping a variety of health conditions, with  no side effects. Because of this, it also works as a wonderful  complementary method to other medical or therapeutic techniques.

During this retreat, we will gather at the beautiful Pura Vida Spa  and Retreat in Costa Rica for training in Reiki Practitioners Levels I  and II. In Reiki Level I, you will be attuned to Reiki energy, learn how  to give Reiki to yourself and others, and receive Reiki Level I  Certification. In Reiki Level II, you will receive the second level  Reiki attunement, learn Level II Reiki symbols, learn how to give  Distance Reiki, and receive Reiki Level II Certification.

We’ll nourish our minds and spirits with guided meditation, sharing  circles, and delicious healthy meals. There will be a nice balance of  learning, moving, and quiet time. During your free time, you can take  time alone for yourself, take a yoga class, and avail yourself of the  wonderful selection of spa services (included in the cost of the  retreat).
