Sharna provides Reiki Certification in Levels 1, 2 and Master. Her classes provide a very intentional blend of lecture and practical application, so that her students fully understand Reiki concepts, while at the same time having the opportunity to practice feeling, harnessing and moving energy.

Reiki 1 – First Degree Practitioner

Level 1 is a practitioner’s initiation into Reiki and is open to anyone. The focus during Level 1 is on opening the energy channels on a physical level, allowing the practitioner to connect to the universal life force energy, which flows from the cosmos through the crown of the head and down to the heart and hands. Self-Reiki is the goal of the Level 1 designation, and students are encouraged to focus on practicing Reiki on themselves, thereby working through their own obstacles. The Reiki Level 1 attunement is given in four separate attunements. Many experience physical symptoms of energy in their palms after the first attunement — including tingling, coolness or heat. The Level 1 course also includes an overview of the history of Reiki, hand placements and self and group practice.

Reiki 2 – Second Degree Practitioner

Level 2 is often defined by a focus on practicing Reiki on others, as well as an expanded opening of the energy channels. Additionally students receive the “Reiki symbols” and Level 2 attunement. The Reiki symbols allow the practitioner to connect more deeply to the universal energy, as well as draw on the qualities that the symbols represent. This includes the ability to provide distance Reiki, or sending healing energy to individuals wherever they may be. This symbol also may be used to clear energy blockages across time, as well as physical locations. Due to the intensity of the attunement process, at least two months is required for Sharna’s classes between receiving Level 1 and Level 2. The Level 2 attunement is typically given in one single attunement, with a focus on opening up the central channel even more, with an emphasis on the Heart Chakra. Level 2 also includes practice in drawing the symbols, invoking their qualities, as well as distance healing.

Master Level

The Reiki Master Level is the teacher’s level — a practitioner who has received the energy and knowledge to attune new Reiki practitioners. Many receive the Master attunement, along with the corresponding symbol, yet don’t feel comfortable or practiced in properly attuning others — hence the distinction between Third Degree and Reiki Master. Becoming a Reiki Master also represents a deep commitment to the Reiki practice, and some feel that significant time should pass between achieving the Second Degree status and Master Level. Because the Master Level is taught in a wide range of methods, you should meditate on which path feels right for you and spend time and consideration in selecting a Master.


“I was blown away with the energy and knowledge Sharna generously shared with us. She was totally present for the entire day. I learned so much about healing energy and how I could incorporate Reiki into my existing meditation practice. In fact, this experience has reinforced and enhanced my meditation practice. It’s not even one week after and I’m already experiencing significant shifts in areas where i have been stuck of years. She made sure that we all knew she was going to be available after if we ever had questions or needed support during our process in the weeks and months following the session.”

“Sharna taught with grace, inclusiveness and loving openness. She taught with humor and a lightness of touch that made such a deep subject completely accessible and alive for all involved. The four reiki level 1 attunements she gave throughout class were powerful and transformational. The class was five days ago and I am still in an expanded state of bliss. The materials, her presentation style, and the amount of information she fit into the day was impressive. Not to mention the guided meditations, Qigong exercises, and tuning fork sound therapy she led us through.”
