Libby is offering classes and healing sessions remotely by Zoom. Remote Reiki classes and sessions are as effective as in-person. In-person sessions are available in Asheville, North Carolina.

In 1989, to become a Reiki Master, I had to pay $10,000 via a cashier’s check! There was no option to only pay for what I wanted. This is why my Reiki Master program is divided into three separate levels, allowing you to customize the training to your goals. Each level is whole and complete and builds on the previous one.

Reiki II graduates from any Reiki teacher are welcome.

“After the first class yesterday, where I received the Master attunement, I felt so amazing. And the amount of joy that pours out of Libby as she teaches is just contagious and you see the possibility of what life could be living so happy and so on your purpose. And I love her teaching style, it is not too prescriptive, you can really make this journey into what speaks to you. …I know she does in-person classes but virtual was just as incredible. …I am so inspired and so lit up. This feels like a real pivotal move in my life. –Libby Defries

Sister act

Kripalu—and Reiki—brings siblings closer together

We started coming to Kripalu because this was a way for us to have sister time for a few days each year, just the two of us. We both have busy lives with our school-aged kids and our careers. We can’t wait to sneak away to the gorgeous scenery, the quiet, the outrageously good food, and the shop! We love to spend time on personal growth, and we love that we get to experience it together. We’ve done R&R Retreats and workshops on chanting, expanding our intuition, and, most recently, Reiki.

We do Reiki on ourselves every day, and sometimes we do long-distance Reiki on each other. It’s a way to pay gentle, loving attention to yourself, and to the other people in your life. It’s our daily healing practice, along with meditation. And it’s extra special for us because it’s something we share, connecting us across 3,000 miles.
