Sydney Reiki Courses

Learn. Heal. Energize.

New Dawn in Canberra

At the Om Reiki Centre, we believe that everyone has the potential to become a powerful healer. We believe that by learning to tap into Reiki healing energy, we can not only help raise the energy vibration of ourselves but also of our friends, family and all those around us.

Better still, we believe that if enough of us get together as Reiki healers, we can even shift the vibrational state of our city, country and planet.

This is our mission.

This is the project we have been working towards for the past 13+ years, the one we would love YOU to become a part of.

If this resonates, then we are looking for dedicated students who seek to become the best healers they can be, who care about the quality and depth of their healing practice.

Our Sydney Reiki courses provide the most comprehensive and advanced Reiki training anywhere in Australia, offering a combination of features – an accompanying video portal, pre and post-course training, etc. – that no other course offers. (See below for full details.)

What's more, we teach all of the key elements of the traditional Japanese Reiki system – many of which are missing from the vast majority of Reiki courses today!

Om Reiki teacher, Jeremy O'Carroll

Course Creator
Jeremy O'Carroll

The course designer, Jeremy O'Carroll, has studied Reiki from many of the world's best Reiki teachers in India, Thailand, Hawaii, mainland USA and Australia, has visited Japan several times - and uses a unique 7-step learning process to guarantee powerful healing results.

He is a former lecturer and tutor at the University of Melbourne, has been teaching Reiki full-time since 2007, and is the author of over 100 Reiki articles.

He has also written two novels: Full Speed and (the soon to be released) Call of the Silver Cockatoo – novels about finding your true self amid the pressures and expectations of everyday life.

Sapphire Neason, Om Reiki Sydney's head trainer, is a vastly experienced healer with a gift for drawing out the natural talent of her students, while always bringing a sense of fun and laughter to her classes. She has worked closely with Jeremy for years, is an expert in the traditional Japanese Reiki system, and has a passion for Reiki that uplifts everyone she works with.

In recognition of its work, the Om Reiki Centre has recently been awarded 'Best Reiki Practice 2019 - Victoria and NSW' in the GHP Alternative Medicine and Holistic Health Awards.

Having taught thousands of students over the last 15+ years, we have seen Reiki positively impact countless lives. So why not see what it can do for you? We are confident you will be blown away by how powerful it is. (To see what students say about our courses, click here.)

Who Will Benefit from Our Sydney Reiki Courses?

Students of our Sydney courses have found Reiki to help for:

"Enlightening yet peaceful. Absolutely recommend it!"
   (Maria Perta)

Our courses are also ideal for anyone who is susceptible to the 'negative energy' of people, places and spirits.

Through a series of classical Japanese meditations, we teach you how to 'protect yourself' by strengthening the 'hara', one of your body's key energy centres.

To find out how this works and why most 'protection methods' fail, click here.

Why Learn Reiki in One Day?

A lot of Reiki courses will never work because they are too short. 3 hours. 4 hours. 6 hours. That just isn’t enough time to learn all of the essentials.

But there is also something powerful about putting all of your energy into one big burst. Typically, it is easier to focus. Logistically it is generally easier. And what’s more, if all of your learning takes place in a single day, you can build up some incredible momentum.

Our single-day courses are designed to get the best of all worlds. With 10.5 hours of learning, you get the full course, just in one energy-charged day.

The result is incredible momentum and powerful shifts.

What’s more, while you will naturally cycle through different energy levels as you learn new skills (and your body processes the resultant influx of healing energy), you’ll be surprised at how good you can feel even at the very end of the day.

In fact, by the end of the course, you will generally be buzzing and excited to ‘let rip’ with your new healing skills.

Reiki generates energy. It fills you up with life-giving chi. So normal rules don’t apply. Yes, if you were at your desk job from 9 am – 7.30 pm, you’d probably feel whipped afterwards. But with Reiki, you are rebuilding your body energetically. So while you’ll most likely want some good rest after the course, during it, we will go from one energy-enhancing exercise to the next.

Having trained thousands of students (and over 300 Reiki Masters) over the past 15 years, we know what works. So come and see what happens when you give your body the time to build energy over one power-charged day. Enjoy shifts that simply don’t happen when the momentum is interrupted.

How Does Reiki Work?

"I enjoyed every minute of it and couldn't get enough. We had a great group of people and the energy in the room was fantastic. Jeremy has a wealth of knowledge and I just wanted to pick his brain!"
   (Simone Buchanan)

Reiki uses a special form of 'ki' (Japanese for Qi or energy) to rebalance and then charge the body's energy system. It doesn't heal the body itself, rather it gives the body the resources needed to do so.

With regular practice, many Reiki healers feel happier, healthier, more productive and better able to deal with situations that would previously have caused large amounts of stress.

They also often report feeling mentally clearer and better able to make decisions.

The Speed and Power of Reiki

To give you an idea of just how powerful Reiki is - and how quickly it can work – watch the 2-minute video below.

Using the centre's high-tech aura machine, the video shows what happens when the founder of Om Reiki – Jeremy O'Carroll – heals a client.

Note how in less than two minutes, the client's chakras and energy system improve dramatically.

Why Our Courses Are Different

"Very informative, fun, good metaphors / explanations, stories. Professional yet fun and relaxing. Nice group. Good location."
   (Melissa Hamblin)

One reason that many Reiki courses fail to get optimum results is that they lack system and structure. This is particularly prevalent in Western Reiki lineages (i.e. those that have been part of Reiki's journey from Japan, to Hawaii to the rest of the world).

The reason for this is that many Reiki teachers have added techniques from other healing modalities. This has occurred over the last six decades and has resulted in much of what is currently called 'Reiki' having little or nothing to do with the original system.

"It is presented in a very down-to-earth way, very intelligently and doesn't take itself too seriously but still treats Reiki with the utmost respect. I didn't expect to get so much in tune with energy so quickly."
(Sharon McKerchar)

That, of course, doesn't make these techniques bad. The problem is simply that the coherence of the original system has been lost. There are many valuable pieces, but they don't fit together in into a harmonious whole.

While the Om Reiki Centre teaches material (like the chakras) that was not part of the original system, the integrity of the original system is never lost. Where new information is taught, it is clearly highlighted, enabling students to get a better vision of why things were originally taught as they were and why - occasionally - it might benefit them to incorporate additional techniques into their practice.

"Well constructed, flows well, professional delivery, interesting content."
(Karen Evans)

The result of this is that they experience a system where each piece complements the other and they have a steady experience of energetic progress.

In particular, our courses cover the five pillars (or diamonds) of the Japanese system:

  1. Reiki attunements (energy ceremonies that connect students to the Reiki energy.
  2. Meditation techniques that refine and strengthen a student's connection to energy.
  3. Reiki healing which enables students to use energy to heal themselves and others
  4. Mantras and symbols (only introduced in level 2) that help students strengthen their connection to certain forms of Reiki energy.
  5. Reiki precepts or principles that promote a healthy energetic system, facilitate powerful cleansing and provide a philosophical and spiritual backdrop to Reiki practice.

(To find out why most Reiki courses are missing up to 50% of the original Japanese Reiki system, click here.

The Comprehensive Reiki Course

"Surprised me and exceeded my expectations. Thank you."
        (Rebecca Hatton)

One of the major reasons many Reiki students fail to continue with their practice in the years following a course is that they are given little - or no! - structure or guidance after it.

As a result, their Reiki becomes a little like most gym memberships: it's used and enjoyed for a short burst of time but is then forgotten about the moment life grows busy.

To ensure students get consistent, long-term benefits from their course, the Om Reiki Centre is dedicated to supporting students well beyond its conclusion. In fact, it even offers pre-course material to energetically prepare students for the weekend.

Reiki and Crystals

Ametrine CrystalWhile not part of the traditional Japanese Reiki system, crystals can nevertheless be used to complement (and strengthen) Reiki healing.

During our Level 1 Reiki courses, we include a bonus section on cleansing crystals, meditating with crystals, and using them with Reiki for powerful healing.

At our course, we have a large selection of crystals which you can use throughout the weekend, and we will let you know which crystals will be most useful to you based on your energetic strengths and weaknesses.

Om Reiki Pre and post-Course Program

When Jeremy first started teaching Reiki 10+ years ago, he taught Reiki as he had been taught. This meant that students did pretty well what they did everywhere else: they rocked up for the course, attended it and then said 'ciao'!

Nowadays it seems crazy to teach like this, but this is what almost everyone – even to this day – still does.

Reiki Rocks by the Sea

They run a course over two days – we hope! – and that's that. Students are not primed before the course to help them get the most out of it, and they are not guided afterwards (to ensure mastery and follow through of the techniques learned).

This means that even though almost everyone enjoys whichever Reiki course they take, most students don't get nearly as much out of it as they could.

Perhaps in part due to his background in teaching (Jeremy lectured and tutored at the University of Melbourne), and in part due to experience, Jeremy soon realized that students needed a lot more support to extract the maximum from his course.

As a result, he introduced both some pre-course exercises and a post-course 21-day program.

The pre-course work is simple to do, and includes two important meditation practices (with video instructions and downloadable audio files) as well as general information on how best to prepare for your course.

The meditations can easily be done by anyone – even students who haven't practised meditation before – and they will ensure you are energetically ready to get the most out of your weekend.

The post-course 21-day program is done principally via email, and involves us sending you daily emails with techniques to practice, and further information to deepen everything you have learned.

With thousands of students going through Om Reiki and ten years of experience, we know the likely challenges you will face post-course, and this 21-day program is designed to not just help you overcome these but also develop real confidence in everything you have learned.

Om Reiki Video PortalOm Reiki Portal

Although you sometimes see Reiki being taught online, the truth is you do need to learn it in person (surprise, surprise!).

That said, there is no doubt that once you have attended a course, online video support can help a lot.

To make sure students can both remember and go over material taught (and, quite often, even extend it!), we have developed a beautifully presented and detailed Level 1 video portal which you can access on both your desktop and mobile devices.

The video portal includes instructional videos on pre-course work, post-course work, as well as all typical challenges students are likely to encounter.

The portal also includes bonus Reiki articles, mind maps, and downloadable meditations (so you can go over the meditations we did in the course).

It is a unique feature of our courses that helps take your Reiki to a deeper level.

To get an idea of how our video portals work, you can sign up for our free introductory portal 'Everything You Need to Know About Reiki'.

It has videos on all of the commonly asked Reiki questions, and will show you the quality of our video portal platforms.

(Note: None of the videos shown in the Level 1 portal are found in this introductory portal).

Post-Course Phone and Email Support

Sometimes you have a unique question/situation that isn't covered in any of our teaching materials. If this is the case, then we're happy to answer your questions – no matter how silly or weird you think they might be!– via email or phone.

Simply call us on 1300 853 356, or write to us at

Reiki Practice Nights

We have been holding regular monthly practice nights for almost ten years now in Melbourne and are now finally going to be holding them regularly in Canberra. They are the perfect place for you to continue with your Reiki practice, learn new meditation and Reiki healing techniques, ask questions and make friends with like-minded people.

With 1715 people in our group and a 5-star rating, we are most likely Australia's largest and most trusted group of its kind.

Course Contents - Reiki Level 1 (Shoden Level)

Our Level 1 course (also known as 'shoden' level) helps students connect to Reiki energy. At its completion, students will:

Winter Forest Scene in Canberra


Australian Reiki Connection

All courses at the Om Reiki Centre are recognised by the ARC - Australia's leading Reiki association - and the Association of Australian Reiki Professionals.

Our certificates will also be recognised by all traditional Reiki associations around the world.

This is important to anyone who is considering becoming a Reiki practitioner or using Reiki as part of an already established healing modality.

Reiki Course Manual

Om Reiki Course Manual

Sad to say, but in most of the Reiki courses Jeremy O'Carroll attended, the manuals he received were little better than a collection of plagiarized photocopies!

Taken from a multitude of sources, these materials hardly fit together, making them of scant value.

To ensure the Om Reiki Centre didn't fall into this trap, he has created a high quality, 70-page original manual that covers all of the course information in a logical, coherent, and step-by-step manner.

As a result, you will never be left struggling to recall any of the key concepts that we teach. It is all there in precise detail.

The manual is the fruit of many years' experience and research and will prove a great reference tool for any personal or professional Reiki work that you go on to do.

Drinks and Nibbles

All participants will also receive complimentary tea (mostly herbal) and a selection healthy nibbles (nuts, apricots, chips and the like).

Why Take a Reiki Course?

Reiki courses are a great to improve your health, heal hurts from the past, and connect you to your true Self.

After taking our Reiki course, many people:

Reiki and nature

A wonderful thing about Reiki is that you don't need to practice for years to become aware of it.

Indeed, many practitioners feel it right after being 'attuned' (a practice in which a Reiki master helps a student to connect to Reiki energy).

Naturally, your connection to Reiki does improve with practice; but its presence and many benefits will most likely appear pretty well right away.

Course Guarantee

If you don't feel you got a lot out our Reiki course, simply do two things:

  1. Tell us on the course's final day of your doubts;
  2. Finish the accompanying e-programme.

If you still don't think the course was worth the investment, we will happily refund your entire course fee.

"Was worried I wouldn't feel the energy or be able to treat others. That I would be too different to others attending and feel self-conscious. All fears put to rest!
       "It was exciting, relaxing and mind-opening. It puts you in touch with different aspects of yourself. It's extremely calming...Joyful experience to meet others and give them Reiki."
                                (Lara Williamson)

"The course felt more 'complete' than expected. I feel very enriched and empowered. I really felt a connection with others in the group. The course makes you more aware of your spirituality and the possibilities available. Make you realise how much control you have over your thoughts and feelings."
                             (Lisa-Marie Pavlicic)

"Wanted to learn how to do Reiki and now I have learnt the tools and can confidently go away and practice it on myself and others. It was fantastic and you feel great and more confident within yourself."
                               (Cathy de Boni)

"would recommend Om Reiki to others. Because of the quiet and serene environment, the structure created by Jeremy that was so gracefully implemented by Louise's calming beautiful nature, it was a weekend and attunement I will always remember."
                             (Steve Neville)

"It opens people up to something bigger than them and gives them connection to a deeper part of themselves. Quite, quite beautiful. Jeremy is a gorgeous character!"
                              (Antje Janssen)

"Exceeded my expectations. Reiki is such an effective self-help tool and the workshop was a very safe and comfortable place to be. Jeremy, you are a very easy person to be around which made learning that much more enjoyable."
                             (Helen Argyrou)

"Didn't know what to expect. In a way it has left me with a sense of 'wonder' & some type of deep respect for Reiki & what possibilities could come from learning and practicing techniques. Everyone would benefit."
                              (Lesley Harris)
