ONLINE Holy Fire® Reiki Training Classes

ALL Holy Fire classes will be held ONLINE via Zoom for now.
Holy Fire III energy has recently been upgraded to work with the energy of online technology. 
Gail Christie is a certified Holy Fire
 III Online Reiki Master Teacher.


Reiki is a gift of life force energy given to us to renew and heal ourselves and others. The Holy Fire Reiki placement (similar to an attunement) sensitizes you to the frequency of Reiki energy by opening your energy field, clearing blocked energy, and allowing you to become a clear channel for Reiki healing.

The following classes all include Holy Fire Reiki energies. Reiki energy is constantly evolving and Holy Fire III is one of the most recent forms. It is both powerful and gentle. It is noticeably refined and provides purification, healing, and guidance. It carries a very high vibration, which improves your connection to universal energy and unconditional love.  


"I didn't know what to expect in my Reiki One class. The experience was great! I am so grateful. Something beautiful happened here." - Jessica R.
"I was attuned for Reiki One and Two and have attended Reiki share circles with Gail. She is wonderful, knowledgeable and kind. I highly recommended her for others looking for Reiki sessions, share circles, or Reiki attunements. She is devoted to Reiki and to helping others as well." - Jasmine M.

"My Reiki One class exceeded my expectations. It was a very open and welcoming environment. Gail is not only a very calming presence but she also infuses the environment around her with serenity and peace. I would describe this class as a tool to help you improve your health and learn techniques to help yourself and others." - Ana C.

Holy Fire®​​ III Reiki One ONLINE - AUGUST 8

Reiki Level One training is open to all. This comprehensive training class will open up the energy channels in your body and spirit to the pure, loving energy of Holy Fire Reiki. The focus of Level 1 is learning Reiki self-practice for releasing stress and restoring balance to your own body and life. You will also learn the techniques for giving Reiki to others. The number of students in each class is limited to six in order to insure ample time to ask questions and receive individualized instruction. 
  • You will learn the history of traditional Usui Reiki and Holy Fire Reiki, the nature of Reiki energy, the Human Energy System and your chakras.
  • You will become attuned to Reiki energy (through the Holy Fire III Reiki One placement).
  • This class is a combination of the Western and Japanese styles of Reiki.
  • You will learn the Reiki hand positions and the Japanese techniques of Gassho meditation, Byosen scanning, Reiji-ho inner guidance and Kenyoku dry bathing.
  • During a day of instruction, discussion, meditation and practice, you will receive healing as you learn to be a healer.
  • You will receive a 179-page ICRT Reiki 1 & 2 class manual prior to the class and a Reiki First Degree certificate afterward.

Holy Fire®​​ III Reiki Two ONLINE - AUGUST 16

Reiki Level Two will enhance your connection to Reiki energy as well as your healing practice. This course empowers the Reiki Two symbols: one to amplify Reiki energy, another for mental and emotional healing, and the third to send distance healing. Upon completion of this class you will be a certified Reiki Second Degree practitioner, able to send Reiki to anyone, anywhere in the world. 
  • You will receive the Holy Fire Reiki Two placement.
  • You will learn more about the chakra energy centers and how to clear and balance the chakras.

  • You will receive an ICRT Reiki 1 & 2 manual (if you didn't receive one in your Level 1 class) and a copy of the symbols one week prior to class, and a Reiki Second Degree certificate afterwards.
In this training class attunements are called placements. Placements have the same effect as attunements, but are directed by the Holy Fire energy and are designed to provide more effective healing energy and empower the symbols in a more powerful way. 

This 7-hour training class is a combination of lecture, discussion, demonstration and practice. Classes are small (2-8 students). You will have individualized instruction and practice in using all the Reiki 2 symbols, so you will know from experience the effect of each symbol. You will also experience giving and receiving a complete Reiki treatment.

You must be certified in Reiki One (in any form of Reiki) and have had one month to synthesize the Reiki 1 energy.

What is Karuna?

Karuna is a Sanskrit word.

They continually send an unlimited amount of healing energy and guidance to us. As you develop Karuna in yourself, not only are you helping others, but you also become more receptive to and able to use the Karuna energy being sent.

"As a Usui Reiki Master myself, I went to see Gail out of curiosity to see what Holy Fire Reiki was about. I was so impressed, I went and got my Master training in Holy Fire Reiki from her. Whether you want to take a class, book an appointment or simply go to a Reiki share to learn more, I would say do it! You will not be disappointed." - Margaret B.

"I recently took my Holy Fire Reiki Master class with Gail. She was informative and thorough and created a relaxing, energetically supportive healing space. If you are interested in enhancing your own physical, emotional, and spiritual experience and that of your Reiki clients, I would highly recommend taking the Master class with Gail. You will be better able to offer healing to yourself and others." - Karen M.
