Here's what students are saying about their online experiences:

"I took both Reiki I & II with Aziza. Reiki I was in-person, Reiki II was remote. I enjoyed my Reiki II remote class almost more than my Reiki I in-person class! Super relaxed atmosphere, yet still very complete
and in-depth."

~Sue Bohlen

"I admit I was
skeptical about learning Reiki online, but Aziza was recommended. It was more than I expected or imagined. 
I wouldn't hesitate taking another online workshop with her."

~Lissa Cantele

"Aziza organized flow and taught so we learned all the concepts and techniques with ease. There was plenty of class interaction. It was entirely comfortable learning remotely. Being shut down in Florida didn't hold up my learning plans. Yay!"

~Wellan Davis

Are you a Reiki practitioner desiring a new practice of benevolent healing?

Are you feeling pulled to new heights of awareness in sublime and creative ways?


Karuna is a Sanskrit word meaning any action that is taken to diminish the suffering of others and could also be translated as “compassionate action.” When individuals experience enlightenment, they say all beings become one, so, it is natural to extend compassionate action to everyone without distinction because we are all one. As we help others and aid them in their healing process, all beings benefit. Because of the oneness of all beings, the ideal of Karuna is that you want to heal your own wounds and those of others.

Karuna motivates all enlightened beings working to end suffering on Earth. As you develop Karuna in yourself, you will be helping others, and you will become more receptive to the Karuna being sent by the Supreme Being. This Reiki opens you to work more closely with the Supreme Sacred Source.


Learn Holy Fire Karuna Reiki as a Practitioner or as a Master. Students pursuing as Master Teachers will receive eight healing symbols, the Holy Fire Ignitions, and the Holy Fire Symbol. Masters will be qualified to practice and teach Holy Fire Karuna Reiki and all levels of Usui/Holy Fire classes. You will be qualified as a Registered Holy Fire Karuna Reiki Master through the International Center for Reiki Training. If pursuing Practitioner levels only: Levels I & II receive two attunements and the eight Karuna symbols.
