Registration is for Karuna Reiki® Masters only who are ready to teach.

This program is only for Karuna students who have taken the Karuna Reiki® Master training from a teacher who is registered with the Center and has a registration number.

We have recently upgraded the Karuna Reiki® program. All Karuna students will receive a Karuna Reiki® certificate with seal from their teacher. If you become a Karuna Reiki® master and intend to teach, you’ll need to register with the Center. The registration form is available by clicking on the download link at the bottom of this article. Once registered, your name and registration number will go into our data base. Also you will be able to purchase your Karuna Reiki® manuals from us that will include the certificates and seals for your students. This program is based on our minimum teaching standards and code of ethics. These new standards improve the professional image of all who teach or practice Karuna Reiki® and create a more uniform level of quality for the training. Whenever you advertise Karuna Reiki® people will know they can expect a quality class or healing session.

Please read and agree with them before registering. You will also need to agree to abide by our minimum teaching standards and the code of ethics which are included with the forms.

Remember, you will need to continue to order all your Karuna Reiki® manuals from the Center. With each manual will come a class certificate with seal from the Center which you need to sign and fill in your students name and give to each student you teach. Also, we now have separate manuals for Karuna Reiki® Practitioner One, Practitioner Two, Practitioner One and Two combined and Master

The Registered Karuna Reiki® Program is a different program than our Center Licensing program. If you are taking the Karuna Reiki® training, there is no further training necessary. If you are taking the Karuna Reiki® master class, you will be qualified to teach at the end of the class. The Licensing program is more involved and requires at least 1 year of training including taking all the Center classes, reviewing them, co-teaching them with a Center Licensed teacher and more. If you would like to learn more about our Licensing program, please download a free copy of our Reiki Licensing Program Guidelines located in the Advanced Teacher Training Program section of our web site www.reiki.org.
