There are honestly no words that can express my recent, abundant and vitalizing journey during my Reiki 1 and 2 courses with Karen in the beautiful Monteverde Forest.

Embraced by the soothing clouds and the native plant allies that accompany her garden space where we completed most of our work together, nearby her studio that is cozy and inviting, both areas presenting the perfect womb-like environment to familiarize with the ancient healing knowledge of our ancestors.

Karen is a vision, a glowing being of light that holds such a sacred space for learning, growing, creating and transforming. It was an honor to be in her presence and to experience her means of knowledgable teaching, where she held us in a safe container of pure love and light. From the depths of my heart, mind, body and soul, THANK YOU Karen for the retuning and for helping me remember what I needed to know.

There is no better place to do this - learn why here. This option is truly designed as a retreat, whereby you both study and enjoy the benefit of time for integration and a personalized healing session with Karen.  Available as a private option, semi-private with a friend (if you are studying the same level) or as a small group that you organize (4-6 people max). Please fill out the form below to receive the juicy details!

“In the beginning we might feel Reiki (spiritual energy) coming out of our hands when we practice the system of Reiki, but with persistent practice we will feel Reiki coming out of our whole being. At this stage of our practice, we realize that the hands in our practice are only the tip of the iceberg.” – Frans Stiene

Receiving private Reiki training in Monteverde, Costa Rica was an absolutely divine way to integrate my travel experiences in South and Central America.

In my three days of training I received so much clarity, and remembered how to live every day to its potential. I also came to understand the magic and healing power of presence. I was shown infinite reassurance and love for the boundlessness of this existence, and the potential in this lifetime for healing ourselves and the earth.

Why I Love Reiki

The Reiki system was developed in the early 20th century by Dr. Mikao Usui, a scholar and spiritual seeker, and was brought to the West close to 90 years ago. Increasing acceptance and use in hospitals, birth centers, hospice services and wellness / retreat centers has made Reiki one of the most in-demand healing modalities in North America and across the world.

The best part? Reiki is for EVERYONE. Reiki is easy to learn and easy to practice, regardless of your age, personal, or professional background – anyone can learn to use Reiki to restore balance and bring a greater sense of well-being to their lives, and to the lives of others. You will be so glad you learned - and so will your family and community!
It’s all about balance.

The benefits of Reiki are well documented by Reiki practitioners, as well as by scientific research:

  • reduces mental and physical stress
  • strengthens the immune system
  • eases physical pain and discomfort
  • balances and harmonizes emotions
  • enhances mental clarity and creativity
  • facilitates personal and spiritual growth

She crafts an experience that is expansive in mind, body, and spirit…

I came to Revive Healing Arts to receive Reiki Level 1 and 2 training but received much, much more. Karen is a fantastic teacher in the craft of Reiki and a true guide. I left her training not only feeling prepared to offer Reiki to others but also empowered to heal elements of my own life.
