Review for Reiki Education And Research Institute, Charlotte, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I took my first class with RERI around 2012.  I've returned over the years to continue my Reiki journey, now finishing up my master class in 2020.

Classes - The classes are not fluffy, become a Reiki Master in a weekend type courses.  They are full of material and practices for you to try and find what works best for you.  Classes are spaced out to give students a chance to work with the material and come back to the class to share experiences and discuss.   Mei-Yin and Bill actively seek feedback for the courses from students and make updates and improvements.  

Community - RERI works to intentionally create a community offering options for everyone: an alumni facebook group to share requests for Reiki, a retreat (really an amazing experience), monthly Reiki coffee meet-ups, Reiki circles, a Reiki clinic for students to practice and the public to experience Reiki and more.   In this year of  Covid-19, the in-person events were cancelled, but they quickly created virtual retreats and circles.  I participated in the  World Healing Reiki meditation, a free weekly virtual Reiki gathering led by Bill and Mei-Yin and found it to be a very powerful and rewarding experience.  

I have often taken a break between classes and each time I have genuinely felt welcomed back into the community.  Individuals are accepted at whatever stage of their journey they are at and provided with encouragement and support to continue their journey.  

I would recommend RERI for anyone wanting to receive Reiki or take a Reiki class.
