Reiki 1 and Reiki 2 Classes. Our Classes follow the Reiki lineage of Hawayo Takata and the discipline of Usui Shiki Ryoho. Our classes are a two-day intensive with 16 hours of learning, practicing, hearing the oral tradition of Reiki, and receiving initiations. Our goal is to present Reiki to our students as closely as Mrs. Takata did. Christopher Tellez, of SF REIKI CENTER has practiced Reiki since 2010, and completed a rigorous two -year Master Apprenticeship, 2000 hours of client sessions, and a thesis project before being initiated as a Reiki Master in 2016. Upon receiving Reiki Training at SF REIKI CENTER you will become part of our Reiki community and will have the opportunity to receive continual training and support through our various Reiki offerings.

Reiki First Degree

Registration: $300

The Reiki process is a simple method of hands-on healing as developed by Mikao Usui, a monk from Kyoto, Japan. After training, Reiki energy flows through the body to the hands of the Reiki healer and into the cells of the person being treated. The energy is used to normalize body functions. It helps to reestablish balance and harmony on the physical, emotional, and spiritual planes so that the natural function is restored. Reiki differs from other healing methods in that a specific initiation process is used to prepare students for the flow of healing energy. This protects them from either transmitting or absorbing any negative energetic patterns.

Currently we offer classes in San Francisco. Christopher has taught in Los Angeles and Honolulu.

Our Reiki First Degree Class is both academic and experiential. Over two days you will learn, practice and hear the oral history of Usui Shiki Ryoho. You will receive four initiations which will enable you to give Reiki to yourself and others.

By the end of the Reiki First Degree Class you will be able to:

  • Apply Reiki energy to yourself and others, and sense the energy as it flows through your hands.
  • Feel the energy of the person receiving treatment and perceive areas of reduced vitality.
  • Appreciate that attitudes can create dis-ease in the mind, and that the physical body can be affected.


Second Degree

Registration: $600

Those entering our Second-Degree Reiki program have done much work with the tools and information taught in the first-degree Reiki course, feel a commitment toward using those tools in loving service to other people, and wish to expand the fields of knowledge and the abilities already acquired. At least three months (and preferably six) have elapsed since taking the first degree Reiki class. You will receive one meditative initiation, which open you to the additional energies needed for second-degree Reiki work.

Currently we offer classes in San Francisco. Christopher has taught in Los Angeles and Honolulu.

You will learn the following in Reiki Second Degree:

  • The first technique involves an increase of channeling power during the Reiki treatment process. 
  • The second technique teaches you how to use Reiki to help with mental and emotional problems and addictions.

  • The third technique teaches you how to utilize Reiki for absent healing (i.e. healing others from a distance).

  • Cement your knowledge of the second degree through direct practice on other students.

Refresh Your Reiki Practice:
For Second Degree students who would like to hone their skills I am now offering the opportunity to repeat the 2nd degree class. Registration is $400.
