Reiki Grandmaster Level (Shihan) is only for the people who wish to further develop themselves into a Reiki Master. Here, they will have access to all the Reiki Master symbols and are allowed to perform attunement process on others. More complex healing cycles will be taught at this level, with the aim of expanding your Reiki influence. The word “Shihan” means a teacher. As the meaning goes, this is a teaching level and is recommended for those who are committed to Reiki and want to take up the responsibility of teaching Reiki to others but at the same time, it is not strictly denied to those who want it for themselves only. At this level the emphasis is on the ability to pass attunements to others, not on healing abilities. The student is taught to pass attunements for the First Degree, Second Degree, Teacher Degree (3A) and Master Degree.
This is for those students who wish to teach Reiki. It is necessary that a continuous use of Reiki and a prerequisite of Third Degree for Personal Mastery be completed before applying for the Master/Teacher level. In this level, one is taught how to do attunements, which open the recipient to receive greater amounts of Reiki energy. These attunements are not initiatory, but are designed to help you access more energy when giving hands-on or absentee treatments.
The end goal of this last level of training is to make you a Reiki Master who can initiate, teach, and train others into the art of Reiki.
Participants who have completed Reiki-III-A Degree and are eager to enhance the healing power and wish to renew and deepen their commitment to Reiki Healing and Reiki Treatment. Moreover they wish to receive and learn how to use further Advance Reiki Symbols revealed to Dr. Usui. Basically the Reiki Master Degree is for those who also wish to teach and attune others. Taking Reiki Mastership requires total commitment to Reiki System and a real desire to integrate it into your whole life. On this course the following areas are taught:
It you are actually interested to enter into this Energy Healing System, then don't wait and learn all Levels of Reiki up to Grand Master because becoming a higher level Spiritual Healer gives feeling life satisfaction in spiritual path.
This level requires a deep commitment to the integrity of the system and the integration of Reiki as a lifestyle. It gives you the complete science for activating First, Second, Third and Master/ Teacher degrees (including complete teaching notes for each degree). It contains advanced techniques in energy activation, balance, direction and modulation for healing, transformation, integration and inner-illumination. It is not just a step up in energy; it is a way of being. The Master/Teacher level is available only upon request and interview.
Why would a Reiki Master choose to teach more than three levels? The answer we have found most often is that there is so much wonderful information to pass on to the Master candidate. Rather than having the Master student apprentice for a year to learn the complete system, some teachers have chosen to add additional levels to the teaching. Specific lengths of time between classes are usually required to allow the energy to incorporate within the person and giving them a set amount of time to practice what they have learned. A Reiki Master Teacher has obtained the highest level of training provided, usually after thorough knowledge of giving Reiki to oneself and others to facilitate healing. The Master Teacher Level of Reiki allows the Reiki practitioner to initiate (attune) others into Reiki including from Reiki level I to Master Teacher. Initiating others to Reiki is a sacred honor, a powerful experience, and a great responsibility. Deciding to become a Master Teacher is for the true and dedicated seekers of Divine Love, Wisdom and Power. This path is one of reawakening, remembering and rediscovering who and what you really are as a person that lives for oneness with God.
This training will support you entering into your soul’s purpose by combining lecture, discussion, attunements, meditations and experiential practice in a well organized, but relaxed program. A detailed class manual is included, providing thorough instructions for giving all of the Usui Reiki attunements.
In the First Degree class, you will receive the Reiki Level I attunement, and a comprehensive Level I Manual.

What are the requirements for learning to become a Master Teacher Reiki?
The prerequisites to become a Master Teacher are successful completion of Reiki Master Practitioner training; demonstration of knowledge of the Reiki symbols; experience in giving Reiki treatments; and a deep commitment to the service of healing and teaching. If you have not been trained at Taproot Healing Institute, you will be required to demonstrate that you have adequate experience with Reiki foundation principles. Additionally, you need to have at least 21 days of treating yourself with Reiki Master Practitioner energy before you begin the Master Teacher training.
Advanced registration is required. The small courses are tailor made for the participating students. Master Teacher training is taught over five half days, and one full day from 9 am to 5 pm. You will be required to complete homework for each of the class sessions, including documenting completed treatments in between class sessions.
What is Attunement?
Everyone is born with Reiki energy but cannot use it consciously at will. Attunement is a process, which activates the ability to transmit and use Reiki. It is to be done personally by a Reiki teacher through a process called “attunement”. The process is also called empowerment or initiation and is the most important part of Reiki learning/training, which must be done by a living Reiki teacher. It is not possible to become a Reiki healer without receiving the attunement.
Attunement is a ritual and an act performed by the Reiki teacher that creates a healer. The process does not require a mysterious atmosphere. It is done in a special manner to activate the energy channels and allow Reiki energy to flow through the recipient’s energy system and adjust it so that it can carry the Reiki energy. The process is something like “fine-tuning” the physical and the non-physical bodies to a higher level of vibration. As soon as the attunement is complete, the recipient becomes a Reiki healer and can begin giving healing sessions.
Attunement is not a healing process. Do not expect to be cured of all your diseases just through attunement. It is only meant to activate the ability to heal. After receiving the attunement, you have to use Reiki regularly to cure yourself or others.
Every Reiki teacher has his/her own way of passing the attunements. One thing is common however, that no equipment or machine is used to pass the attunement. Some teachers do it collectively while some attune every student individually. I do it individually.
Reiki attunements are permanent in nature, for life time. Once a person is attuned, he/she remains a healer for the rest of the life. No body, not even your teacher can take it back. The attunements are NOT lost due to general anesthesia or any other health issue.
There are different attunements for each Reiki Level.
