Certification in Reiki is a multi-level process.  Students can be certified in Reiki I, Reiki II and the Master Level.  Each level of Reiki requires an attunement process, or passing of the symbols from teacher to student to allow the energy to begin flowing.  Deb Reynolds is a Master Level Reiki Practitioner for both the Usui and Karuna forms of Reiki.  Her process of certifying students is unique in that she uses the wisdom of horses to assist in the attunement process.  Students spend time in deep listening, reflection, meditation, sharing and grooming of the horses as they prepare for the responsibilities of receiving the Reiki symbols.  Often Reiki I and Reiki II can be done in one weekend.  Master Level Reiki is only possible after a year of practice and is a more intense process.
