Shamanic Elements in Reiki (S.E.R.)
The Shamanic Elements in Reiki (S.E.R.) courses are designed to support Reiki practitioners to live in greater harmony and align with the elements, animals, plants, and supernatural forces. Practitioners learn to summon and co-create with these allies to release harmful or lower vibrational energies in their or the client’s energy field. When one’s life force is high, one can be healthier and connect more easily with their purpose. Shamanic Elements in Reiki (S.E.R.) includes instruction, hands-on practicum, a digital manual, and 3-months of support from the instructor. I have trained over twenty practitioners in Shamanic Elements in Reiki in the past two years.
The acronym S.E.R. also spells the word ser, meaning to be, beingness, or soul in Spanish. Much of what is shared in each level of Shamanic Elements in Reiki courses is to support the practitioner to connect more to their ser or sense of self through these Shamanistic / Indigenous practices. Each level comes with a certificate of completion. The Shamanic Elements in Reiki courses are a fusion of training and experiences in Usui Reiki, Plant Medicine, Shamanism, Curanderismo, Light Language, and Polarity Therapy. Each level is a two-day course, except the four-day intensive available during holiday weekends such as Memorial Day.
Shamanic Elements in Reiki Courses are created and taught by Reina Prado, a holistic energy practitioner and Reiki Master based in unceded Tongva Territory (Los Angeles, California). Madre Jaguar trained Prado, Grace Harrington Murdoch, Evelyn Starlight, Scott Smith, Aki Baker & Manu del Prete, Sunder Ashni, LeMar Moore, Saewon Oh, Erika Buenaflor, and Gary Strauss. This course is a fusion of training and experiences in Usui & Holy Fire III Reiki, Plant Medicine, Witchcraft, Light Language, Curanderismo, and Polarity Therapy. Participants learn from a practitioner who brings ten years of experience in holistic energy and over twenty years of teaching experience as a college professor.

In Level 1, practitioners are introduced to the Shamanic Elements of Reiki to support and complement their practice. The course covers: how to palpate the energy field via the elements, learn a protocol to clear the chakras that do not require the use of Reiki symbols, get introduced to plant medicine, crystals, and animal allies, build altars as portals, and co-create with the energy of the directions.
If you already have a personal practice where you co-create with the elements, plants, crystals, and animal allies, I recommend enrolling in Levels 2 or higher. Students will feel more resourced as they amplify their abilities and attune to the earth, possibly awakening new gifts. The only requirement is attunement to Usui Reiki Level 1. Students attuned to Usui Reiki 2 or higher and have a personal practice co-creating with the elements may find this course helpful in learning how to integrate Reiki with Shamanic aspects of bringing a client's body to wholeness.
In Level 2, practitioners learn how to support and balance the autonomic nervous system through the three sacred energy centers: Tonalli, Teyolia, and Ihiyotl. In the Mexica cosmology, the three holy energy centers at the crown, heart, and liver are considered aspects of our soul's essence. When any of the 13 aires are present in any energetic body: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual, one's soul or heart is disconnected from the sense of self. Understanding the 13 Aires (energetic airs) and their impacts on the autonomic nervous system, along with a practicum to help balance the nervous system, is taught at this level. The protocol involves therapeutic touch and introduction to the anatomy of the Endocrine System, Autonomic Nervous System, Spine, and Organs connected to the chakras.
In Level 3, practitioners learn a companion protocol shared in level 2 to balance a client's autonomic nervous system. Level 3 builds upon that content and introduces the six and 12-pointed stars to support a client's soul journey and integration. The third level also includes four rites/attunement connecting practitioners to a lineage of healers who answered the call to be wisdom keepers. The protocol involves therapeutic touch, emphasizing learning how to work along the back side of the body with special attention on the spine. Through understanding the sacred geometry of the six and 12-pointed stars, Practitioners also co-create with crystal energy grids*. There is also an introduction to including guided experiences and vibrational healing to support your client's wellness journey. *Have six clear crystals, crystal points, or selenite points. They can be small.
In Level 4, practitioners learn protocols that involve other aspects of sacred geometry, including the Mayan Cross, to map out a client's field. This tool helps clients release Aires and move toward greater alignment of their soul's expansion. Teachings of the master guide: Eagle/Condor, Snake, Jaguar, and Hummingbird, and the archetypes of Lower, Middle, and Upper World are shared. Another rite is given at this level.
In Level 5, practitioners learn a protocol that supports clients through a release of emotional trauma that may be lodged in the body. Informed by Toltec goddesses and the Mexica Cosmology is at the heart of the protocol shared in this course. The four guides: are Tlazohteotl, Coyolxauqui, Cihuateotl, and Coatlicue, and the emphasis is on tending to the emotional body and the flowering heart. The protocol includes therapeutic touch and applying essential oils to the body. Practitioners will learn how to use therapeutic-grade essential oils. Another rite is given at this level. *Practitioners will have access to these oils in class. However, it is best to invest in your own set.
More details will be shared once students have registered on what to bring for the day of instruction. Though the course is designed for an in-person experience, one can experience it remotely. Any course content is recorded solely for instructional purposes to improve the system and will not be shared with the practitioners.

I had completed Usui / Holy Fire III Reiki Levels 1 & 2 and SER Reiki Level 1 with Reina previously. I really enjoyed the opportunity to learn more and deepen my practice through SER Reiki Level 2. This course allowed me to learn how to incorporate shamanic elements in my Reiki practice at a more comprehensive level. I feel these practices will allow me to provide more depth and balance to my Reiki sessions. I found learning to connect to the soul essence especially impactful for my practice. This course impacted my Reiki practice in a profound way. - Nicole
Reina shares her beautiful protocol with students and through guided learning and hands-on sessions, she helps them develop their connection with their ancestral roots and deepen their intuition as they familiarize themselves with new methods and tools. A great course to take to explore how to move through sessions/treatment feeling guided, ensure your field is grounded and protected, and learn new ways to move energy in a client-centered way. For folks with a desire to decolonialize healing practices and get back to authentic roots, while they and expand on their reiki toolkit, this is a great offering. - Amanda Fruta
The material and class was utterly life changing. This was such a reminder of how the body- energetic, physical and otherwise- keeps score and how as practitioners we may not realize that past traditions can be healing to learn about and practice. This course was close to my heart- literally, and it reminded me of how hard I am on myself but also how compassionate we can be to each other by putting these teachings into practice. Reina is the sweetest, funniest, and most humble teacher I have worked with and I look forward to learning more from her. I recommend you take at least one class with her. I learned far beyond what was in the hand book. - La Neta
Reina- I am beyond grateful to you for sharing your wisdom and protocols in incorporating shamanic elements in energy sessions. My biggest takeaway was the tender and care I which must approach the client. Also, the setting of the space through the altar, the calling in of the directions, the grounding, clearing and protection aspect- your emphasis on this was clear and it has been life changing for myself and how I plan to work with others. What you shared has allowed me to feel ready, capable, and willing to share with others. Thank you for all your knowledge share. - Pati
My experience in taking the Shamanic Elements in Reiki was eye opening on many levels. First off, Reina is a natural teacher. She gently guides you but also challenges you into thinking a different way when it comes to how you approach and work with gifts and your clients. Adding into that, being taught Shamanic elements further deepened my own intuitive gifts, but also added another layer to my own Reiki practice. Whats more, I'm learning to use these tools in my own everyday spiritual practices. This is a truly valuable class for anyone who wants to add more tools into their toolkit. I'm really grateful I took this class. - Gina
I found the Shamanic Elements in Reiki to be a very informative course on blending the traditional Usui Reiki with the tangible healing practices of a Shaman. Reina Prado is an extremely skilled practitioner that understands the challenges her students face in sessions. She is able to take that knowledge and guide students to create an individualized practice that honors tradition. I highly recommend this course to any Reiki healer with a budding interest in shamanic healing. - Melanie
