Shamanic Elements in Reiki (S.E.R.) Levels 1-6
The Shamanic Elements in Reiki (S.E.R.) courses offer practitioners techniques and protocols for living in greater harmony and alignment with all the elements, animals, plants, and forces of nature. To summon these spirit allies, release harmful lower vibrational energies and balance them. The acronym S.E.R. also spells the word ser, meaning 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. The protocols and practices shared are meant to complement a Reiki practice.
Shamanism is universal, as people from all over the world have developed similar ceremonies and rituals. The ancestors knew that Nature could balance, revitalize, and shift consciousness. Shamanic Elements in Reiki open practitioners up to unseen and subtle energies and much more than can be perceived with the eyes.
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). Prado was trained by Madre Jaguar, Grace Harrington Murdoch, Evelyn Starlight, Scott Smith, Aki Baker & Manu del Prete, LeMar Moore, Saewon Oh, Erika Buenaflor, and Gary Strauss. This course is a fusion of training and experiences in Usui Reiki, Plant Medicine, Witchcraft, Curanderismo, and Polarity Therapy. Participants can learn from a practitioner who brings nine 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, work with plant medicine, crystals, and animal allies, build altars as portals, and co-create with the energy of the directions. 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 may find this course complements their work.
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 sacred 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/or 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 the companion protocol to balance a client's autonomic nervous system. There is also an introduction to including guided experiences and vibrational healing to support your client's wellness journey. The protocol involves therapeutic touch along the back side of the body and spine.
In Level 4, practitioners learn a protocol that supports clients through a release of emotional trauma that may be lodged in the body. The protocol is informed by the cosmology of Mexica/Toltec goddesses Tlazohteotl, Coyolxauqui, Cihuateotl, and Coatlicue. The protocol includes therapeutic touch and the application of oils on the body. Therapeutic-grade essential oils will be taught how to use them in the protocol.
In Level 5, practitioners learn protocols that involve other aspects of sacred geometry, including other energy systems, such as planets or 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.
In Level 6, practitioners learn how to incorporate the teachings of the master guides: Eagle/Condor, Snake, Jaguar, and Hummingbird, and the energies of the moon and sun to support their practice.
Shamanic Elements in Reiki (S.E.R.) includes instruction, hands-on practicum, a manual, and 3-months of support from the instructor.
