Why take Private Instruction? Because all the attention is on you!

Private Instruction

What are the benefits of taking private instruction?

While there are many advantages of taking a course in a class setting, one on one private instruction allows you to enjoy the convenience of working within your own schedule as well as individualized attention.

One on one private instruction is ideal for you if you are shy or uncomfortable with unfamiliar people and the social aspects of a group setting, cannot attend scheduled weekend classes or prefer to learn alone.

One on one private instruction is also ideal if you’re easily distracted or need tailored instruction due to learning disabilities and attention deficits.

Private instruction is available on an individual basis or as a private group class. The private group class is ideal for a group of friends, family members, businesses, and clubs or organizations (see host a class).

If you’re opting for private instruction, then start here.

What Susan's STUDENTS are Saying

Kind words and praise.

Personalized Attention

While on vacation the hotel I was staying at offered Reiki services, after the initial session I felt that there was something to this energy balancing practice. The intrigue was there to find out more and my journey led to Susan. Susan gave the class background on how Reiki came into being as well as how to handle it in practice. I can honestly say that I connected that day at a level I never expected. Susan sensed it as well. What makes classes with Susan different, is that she works with you and your higher spirit to achieve the very best in class as well as offers follow up guidance when needed.

Highly Recommend

I did my reiki level 3 training with Susan and really enjoyed it. She is a great reiki teacher. I enjoyed the very relaxed atmosphere and personalized attention. She has made herself available to ask any follow up questions I’ve had over the course of the last several months which I really appreciate. Be it for reiki training or for a reiki session, I highly recommend her!

Very Pleased

I met with Susan when I wanted to become certified in Level 1 Reiki. She was so warm and welcoming, I instantly felt comfortable. She is not only a great teacher, but also made herself so accessible for any questions and concerns I had after my attunement. I am so pleased to have shared this experience with her.
