When you seek Reiki Certification, you naturally want to be sure that your course will be recognized, in the Reiki community, as a valid and respected Reiki course. One of the main ways to determine validity and recognition has to do with Reiki Lineage. In fact, in some locales (where there is governmental certification) and for some Reiki associations, lineage is required.
At the end of each Reiki course level you will have learned the accepted information and receive a certificate, signed by me, validating the level you have achieved.
When you train with me your lineage will be in the appropriate Tradition.
