Third Degree (Shinpiden): Reiki Master

The Journey to Becoming a Reiki Master/Teacher

This intensive, three-part course prepares you to teach the three levels of Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho. By signing up for this course, you enter a higher level of the Reiki practice, and embark upon an exciting part of the Reiki journey.

The word “Shinpiden” means “Mystery Teachings.” And that’s exactly what the Third Degree is about – transferring the mysteries of Reiki to you, and readying you to pass that knowledge to new students.

A challenging, immersive experience; Shinpiden is designed to prepare students to teach the First Degree, Second Degree, and Third Degree. Because of this, the course is taught in three parts or “aspects”:

Shihan-kaku (Assistant Teacher): in which students learn to teach the First Degree course

Shihan (Teacher): in which students learn to teach the Second Degree course

Dai-shihan (Head Teacher): in which students learn to train and initiate other Reiki Masters

These three aspects may be taught all at one time, or separately, on a case by case basis. And of course, they must be paired with lots of continuing time, dedication, and practice.

Most importantly, when you sign up for the Third Degree, you begin living and breathing Reiki – entering into a lifelong practice that will shape you and your path for years into the future.

Please note: Training in the Third Degree requires an interview and application. You’ll find the application and interview request form at the bottom of this page.
