It is taught by the American Heart Association and the American Red Cross. You may receive 1 Grey School credit (Dept. of Healing) simply by submitting evidence of current CPR certification and answering a few simple questions.

Credit for First Aid Certification
Credits: 1
Level: 1
Instructor: Aaron "Frater Adservio" Meighen
Class Description:

Being the first person on the scene of an accident or injury can be a frightening experience.  If that person is properly trained in simple first aid procedures it can make all the difference for the person who has been injured.  Someone who is properly trained can give reassurance, physical comfort, prevent infection, stop bleeding and, in some cases, save a life.  Certification in First Aid is taught by the American Heart Association and the American Red Cross, although there are other agencies that offer national accreditation. As long as I can sufficiently verify that the first aid course card submitted is from a nationally (in the country for which the certification was granted)  accredited institution, you may receive 1 Grey School credit (Dept. of Healing) simply by submitting evidence of current First Aid certification and answering a few simple questions.

Please note that to request this class, you must already hold a First Aid card.  This class does NOT teach First Aid as doing so on line will not meet the requirements of certification.

Credit for Prior Reiki Certification (Reiki 1 & Basic Reiki)
Credits: 1
Level: 1
Instructor: Robert Lee "Skip" Ellison
Class Description:

Reiki is a Japanese form of healing that is becoming increasingly popular worldwide. It involves the transfer of universal healing energy through the practitioner to the patient to enhance the body's natural ability to heal itself through the balancing of energy. Reiki students study theory and practice and then are “attuned” or “awakened” (and certified) by experienced Reiki practitioners. Attunement to the 1st Degree of Reiki is required for acceptance into a Reiki II class.

In this class, Gray School students who have received a first-degree Reiki attunement may obtain 1 credit by presenting their certification and answering a few very simple questions.

NOTE: You are only required to send a copy of your Certification, and then may apply to take the final exam. There are no other essays required for this class. Ignore if they continue to show below.

Attunement & Certification Requirements (Basic Reiki / Reiki 1st degree)

 

Upon completion of the class an attunement in Reiki I is an option available through the professor. If the student lives within 50 miles of the professor's home, such an attunement will be given in person. It is the student's obligation to arrange the attunement with the professor to take place at the professor's home or designated location. Given the online nature of the school, a distant attunement in Reiki I is an option available through the professor for those living outside of the 50 mile radius of the professor's home. Acceptance of either attunement is at the discretion of the professor and is not guaranteed. Any denials of a requested attunement/certification will be reviewed by the Dean of the Healing Department of GSW.

 

The optional attunement is available only upon completion of the following requirements and is not an automatic part of the class. There is no additional credit for this option. However the student will be eligible to take the Reiki Certification class for credit.

 

Requirements for all attunements are:

1) The student must demonstrate understanding, sincerity, dedication and high ethical standards throughout the class.

2) The student must complete the class with an excellent grade of at least 90 percent or above. 

3) The student must request an attunement and explain in a detailed essay a) why they want an attunement and b) what they plan to do with it.

4) To obtain a distant attunement, student must certify that they are located more than 50 miles from the professor’s home (please contact professor to determine location).

 

Before certification of the attunement is issued the student must complete the requirements above, as well as those below:

 

To receive certification the student must:

1) Give a Reiki treatment to at least 10 people other than themselves, each treatment to last a minimum of ½ hour.

2) Document each treatment and the results with client feedback, and send this to the professor.

3) Allow at least a month between attunement and certification. During this period the student is encouraged to be in contact with the teacher as needed, at least once a week to report on how many Reiki sessions were completed, and to provide results and client feedback. Contact the teacher immediately if any question or difficulty arises.

The student report should include:

a) did the client appear relaxed during the session? Was the client receptive or resistant? If resistant what did you do about that?
b) Were you, as practitioner, careful to preserve your own energy and only channel Reiki energy during the healing session?
c) How did you feel after the session? Relaxed? Energized? Tired? Other?
 d) Did you ask for feedback from the client and what was it?

Healing is serious business. In some cases, it can quite literally be the difference between life and death.

Pioneered by Gary Craig, EFT is a modern complimentary therapy that blends acupressure with positive affirmations into short but efficient healing sessions. This class will not qualify you for practicing EFT on others. It will however teach you the basics of EFT, so that you can decide whether you wish to pursue it further. There are several short essays to write, and you will be doing some independent research to find out why things are structured the way EFT structures them. You will be conducting a basic EFT healing session on yourself and writing about your findings. The final exam is multiple choice.

Estimated Completion Time: 6 weeks
Prerequisites: Introduction to the Healing Arts
Safety Precautions: As with any diet, exercise, alternative medicine, or complimentary therapy, seek the advise of a health care professional if there are any doubts about the suitability of this technique.

If you *know* that you have a memory condition, such as post-traumatic stress disorder or sexual abuse/assault survivor issues, then it is prudent to explore memory- or consciousness-related therapies with a trained professional before trying them alone.
