James also offers a unique, private and semi-private one on one personal reiki training program for Usui Reiki levels 1, 2 and Master levels A and B. 

"As much as I love being in a class full of eager students, there is nothing like the luxury of being privately trained by a highly skilled teacher! You receive a unique syllabus and gain the opportunity to ask as many questions as you feel necessary that pertain to your own personal spirituality, skills and practice. I have done one on one training as well as group training and have found the private route well worth the extra cost! Another great aspect of private instruction is that the teacher can gear the program specifically towards what your main interests are. I offer three training tracks! You may choose one of three emphasis to take as an add-on, based on your interest of study. This is included in the cost. I offer Spiritual Consulting with Reiki, Intuitive Reiki Healing or Angelic Reiki Healing. You may even opt to add another emphasis or choose to take the full program, where you learn all three aspects! 

This program is scheduled privately and will work around any busy schedule. The length of workshop is based on 1 emphasis being taken. Add 5 hours for each additional, so the FULL Program is typically 10 hours longer. The hours are added to all 4 modules.
