Reiki Courses in South Africa

Are you thinking of taking a Reiki course?

There are a few things you may want to consider when deciding between different Reiki courses in South Africa:

  1. Consider why you want to learn Reiki. Is it for personal use, or for future professional practice? Level I courses are primarily seen as being for personal use, followed by Level 2, which is the foundational level for professional practice.
  2. There are various styles of Reiki you could choose from, however the most important factor when choosing the style of Reiki is whether the Reiki Master has a lineage that can be traced back to Mikao Usui, the founder of the system of Reiki. A lineage is similar to a family tree.
  3. Another very important factor is whether  “attunements,” are given in person. “Attunements” can be compared to spiritual blessings and is the most important aspect in the system of Reiki.

I teach the Usui style of Reiki and my Reiki lineage can be traced back to to Mikao Usui (view it here). As my Reiki courses are always held in person, attunements are always given in person. I am also registered with the Reiki Guild South Africa as a Master Teacher and Practitioner.


I recommend you also watch the video below and read my blog post on What to look for when choosing a Reiki course and Reiki Master. (Please note the price for a Level 1 course has changed since I recorded the video.)

"Learning Reiki was an amazing experience. The amount of knowledge gained from this course is life changing. The emotions felt during the treatments were indescribable. So, so, worth it."

"Even though we were eight students, it still felt like a one-on-one class. To learn more about Reiki with Natasja was beyond special."

Reiki Level 1 course

This course is for anyone who is drawn to Reiki as a personal healing and self-development tool and lays the foundation of Reiki.

Over the two days of this course, you will receive four Reiki 1 attunements which starts the flow of Reiki energy. You will be able to treat friends and family, and to use Reiki for your own healing and personal development. (Note that you will only be able to set up a professional practice to treat others for a fee, after receiving Reiki Level 2.)

I teach in a relaxed and personal style, and offer students plenty of time to practice the techniques on the other students. 

I received my Reiki Master training in the Usui Tradition according to the Japanese and Western styles. I therefore teach Level 1 Reiki Courses in the Usui Tradition and my students are trained in both the Japanese and Western lineages.

The First Degree (Level 1) covers:

Reiki Level 2 (Practitioner) course

Over the two days of this course you will receive the Reiki Level 2 attunement which introduces the Reiki symbols. In the course you will learn and practice to use of each of the three symbols. It’s a lot of fun, especially when we experience a distance healing session for the first time!

Course requirements: At least three months must have passed since completing Level 1 training to allow your body and mind to adjust to the higher energetic vibrations, and to gain experience in giving Reiki treatments.

Certification: Students will only be issued with Practitioner certificates once they have submitted case studies. 

It is not a prerequisite that you received your Reiki Level 1 training with me. As long as you are trained in the Usui style of Reiki, you are welcome to attend my Reiki Level 2 course.

I received my Reiki Master training in the Usui Tradition according to the Japanese and Western styles. I therefore teach Level 2 Reiki Courses in the Usui Tradition and my students are trained in both the Japanese and Western lineages.

The Second Degree (Level 2) course covers:

Reiki Level 3a (Master Practitioner) course

Being a Reiki Master Practitioner signifies a deep commitment to the Reiki practice and to your spiritual growth.

In the Master Practitioner course we revise, and explore further, everything that was learned in levels 1 and 2. You will also learn new Japanese techniques for energy clearing and treatments. You will receive the Usui Reiki Master attunement and learn and practice to use the Master symbol and its mantra. We also cover the history of Reiki and different Reiki traditions in more depth. 

Course requirements: At least 6 months must have passed since qualifying as a Reiki Practitioner. This is to ensure you have gained sufficient experience in giving Reiki treatments and for your awareness of Reiki to increase.
It is not a prerequisite that you received your Reiki Level 1 or Level 2 training with me, but I would want to have a discussion with you to understand what you were taught in your Reiki course. Broadly speaking as long as you are trained in the Usui style of Reiki, you are welcome to attend my Master Practitioner course. 

The Master Practitioner course covers:

Reiki Level 3b (Master Teacher) course

The Master Teacher course is a very special level of training that allows the Master Practitioner to also teach Usui Reiki to others.

During the Master Teacher (Level 3b) course you will learn how to give attunements and Reiju, and what it means to be a Reiki Master teacher.

Course requirements: At least one year  of being at Master Practitioner level and submission of 30 case studies.  

Certification: Students will be awarded their Master Teacher certificate upon passing a practical and written exam. Once qualified, Master Teachers will be required to join the Reiki Guild of South Africa and to remain members of the Guild for at least one year.

The Master Teacher course covers:

The course content will be the same as for a group but we have more time for questions and to talk about how Reiki can fit into your life. We also don’t need to do the course over one weekend – it can be broken up over four half-days, two full days mid-week, or even a few hours every day for a week. The benefit a private Reiki course, is the flexibility.

"The course was great! Course content was very relevant to what Reiki is all about, with practical examples, exercises, relevant discussions, group engagement and expert knowledge of the subject by Natasja. The course contents equipped us to help ourselves, and then to help facilitate healing in others."

"I loved feeling part of a community. I loved the validation of these energies being real and not make-believe. I loved learning how to be one with the energy and how to share it. This course makes Reiki real. It makes you feel whole."
