After many requests and much heartfelt contemplation, Kathleen has thoughtfully created an 8-week online version of her popular and life-changing in-person Level 1 course.

Kathleen’s vast experience, having taught over 60 in-person Level 1 Animal Reiki classes over the past 16 years in various shelters and sanctuaries around the U.S., makes her uniquely qualified to teach you, in an online and interactive format, the important foundations and ethics you need to make Animal Reiki a lifelong practice. You won’t find Kathleen’s Let Animals Lead® method anywhere else, unless you train in person with one of her teachers!

What you’ll learn:

The traditional Japanese meaning of Reiki and how it relates to the healing of self and others

Traditional practices of Joshin Kokyu Ho and Seishin Toitsu, and how to use them with animals

The Reiki Precepts, and meditations for working with them with animals

Hands-on Reiki self-treatment, and how to incorporate animals into these sessions

Overview of the Animal Reiki Practitioner Code of Ethics and discussion of its importance when approaching animals with Reiki sessions

Tried and true methods for sharing Reiki with animals and people together

Techniques for grounding, expansion and connection to help you become an animal magnet to even the most sensitive animals!

Kathleen’s groundbreaking philosophy of “being” Reiki “with” your animals, rather than “doing” Reiki “to” them

What you’ll receive:

Eight 60-75 minute teaching sessions via webinar, recorded in both video and audio formats (Each meeting also includes a guided meditation, distant attunement and time for discussion.)

Daily practice assignments and weekly notes and resources to guide your journey

A free copy of Kathleen’s newest e-book, Healing Virtues: Transforming Your Practice Through the Animal Reiki Code of Ethics

A beautiful certificate to show your accomplishment and official certification. This certificate may serve as a prerequisite to Kathleen’s Level 2 in-person courses. 

An invitation to join SARA (Shelter Animal Reiki Association) as a Practitioner member

An invitation to join a private FB group for Kathleen’s Level 1 online graduates, to stay connected with other like-minded animal lovers


Students will need to be able to participate live at scheduled times (attendance required at a minimum of 7 of 8 sessions to receive certification). You must be able to connect via video (preferably) or audio on the webinar platform Zoom.

Students will need to be able to download and open pdf documents in order to read the weekly lessons and assignments. All assignments must be shared either verbally during class, or if that is not possible, written up and sent to Kathleen via email.

Students must have animals to practice with daily.  A variety of animals is preferable (ask neighbors and friends to support you!), but 1 or 2 of your own, at the very minimum, is needed.

Students must commit to 10-20 minutes/day minimum of daily meditation practice during the course (weekly assignments will be given). The main purpose of this requirement is to help you experience the power of Reiki practice in a personal way, thus giving you the foundation you need to build a lifelong Animal Reiki practice. With dedication and commitment, Animal Reiki can heal and transform your life, as well as the lives of the animals you love!

Healing Experience from a Student:

I just wanted to share this while it is still so fresh. I have been dealing with some significant chronic pain in my neck/shoulder area. It has been getting increasingly worse over the last several weeks. 

Anyway, after the meditation/Reiju during class today, I sat up and noticed that the pain had all but left that region! I was so surprised by this feeling (or lack thereof) that I had to move my head from side to side to make sure this was real! I also noticed that after doing the hara breathing this ball of uneasiness in my gut was no longer weighing me down either! Just an overwhelming sense of calm and peacefulness. 

The pain isn’t completely gone but on a scale of 1-10 it was a 15! Now it’s 2-3! I am truly blessed to be able to attend your class and so grateful that you even offer it!

5 reviews for Level 1 Animal Reiki Online Certification Class – Afternoon Session

  1. Deanna

    This is a wonderful class. The pace (8 weeks) gave us plenty of time to practice the meditations and absorb the resources. Kathleen covered all the pertinent information during the course to help students begin to establish their own daily practice and gain an understanding of her ‘let animals lead’ method of Animal Reiki. The small class size was beneficial in that we all had an opportunity to share our experiences during the session. I personally felt the energy of the Reiju that Kathleen offered us during every class. If you find it difficult to travel and attend one of Kathleen’s in-person classes, I highly recommend her online Level 1 Animal Reiki Online Certification class. Thank you, Kathleen.

    This class is amazing and taking it online is a great way to train with Kathleen if you are not able to get to one of her in-person classes.

    I finished my degree online and I work remote, so the online venue is very comfortable for me. Video support makes a huge impact in bringing a virtual group together. The timing and availability of the homework packets are prompt and applicable to our work for a given week. The ability to share experiences within the class adds to a very moving online experience.

    Kathleen helped me to understand how simple her approach is to work with Reiki and animals can be. Who would have thought that one can create a healing space anywhere! Kathleen is an amazing animal ambassador and I feel very blessed to be training with her virtually.

    I highly recommend this Level 1 Animal Reiki Online Certification class and am very grateful to Kathleen for making Level 1 available online. Thank you, Kathleen!

    Thank you for this wonderful class.. to put a one liner.. Excellent class! So much information, was so glad this was a webinar for 8 weeks instead of a day class. Having the class notes and the video/audio from the class will be very helpful for review. Having the time with others helped to understand where everybody was in the training, appreciated their inputs. So sad at Week 8 that it was ending.. but looking forward to future classes. Onward with my practice….

    When I first started looking for an online animal reiki certification, I was very wary of being scammed and worried about finding a well taught course. I happened to stumble upon this class, and let me just say Kathleen has changed my life.

    The class took place over an eight week period of time, and we moved at a pace that let us digest and practice the techniques and information we learned each week. One of the other fantastic things about this course is that it’s not just a premade video; it’s completely interactive. Each week, we would have a video meeting and discuss how our meditations and practice went. This made it so that each week we all got to know each other a little bit more, and it made it so that we could all bond. Also, it allowed us to learn from each other as well as from Kathleen.

    Moving on to Kathleen’s teaching, saying she is wonderful is an understatement. I came into this class knowing little about animal reiki and left so full of knowledge it’s amazing. And through what she taught me I am healing myself as well as offering my help to animals. She has a light about her, and a kind, learned soul that shows through in her teachings.

    So all in all, if you are looking for a fantastic animal reiki class, this one’s for you.

    I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to participate in the Level 1 Animal Reiki course on line. I learned so much about animal reiki and myself. Kathleen was such a great teacher. She provided the knowledge we needed and the support as well. I can’t explain the personal change this course has given me. I am unable to share in an inperson class because of my cats personal needs. This was perfect. I enjoyed the homework every week and the sharing. I look forward to the Level 2 animal reiki class on line as well.
