About Richard        My Path To teaching Conscious Channeling

Upcoming Classes

In-person local classes are currently on hold for students new to me.
If you have a group of 4 or more people interested in a class, please Contact Me.


Read the book "Opening to Channel" but still not having the success you want?  Always wondered how others had the ability to consciously channel?  Attended a class but still not happy with the results?  This may be the workshop for you!

OR...
Are you a Reiki practitioner and/or a healer using alternative healing skills and looking for ways to better assist your healing recipients?  This class may be just what you need to enhance your skills and open new doors.

Richard Rivard, a Reiki Teacher with over 17 years of experience in conscious channeling, invites you to explore additional resources in your quest for spiritual growth and advanced energy work.  Come and experience the most powerful techniques you may ever encounter, as well as receive the highest healing energies you can hold – your highest “Ki” – much like Reiki founder Mikao Usui did in his time, as did other founders of powerful energy systems. 

While most forms of channeling involve connecting with higher beings of Light and Love, this class goes a bit further to involve the process of "Blending" with your guide, as discussed in the book "Opening To Channel."  This is a more vibrant way of channeling, allowing a more complete experience of your guide each time you channel, and thus expanding your experience and extending your personal growth.

You will achieve and practice verbal channeling, automatic writing, automatic drawing and other channeling skills, all using a deeper connection to a new and very high level Guide suited to your own unique life path. With your new Guide's help, you will easily tap into new healing energies and include these in your daily work.  You will discover how your Guide will assist in the understanding of your own spiritual growth on a daily basis. Richard guarantees 2 enjoyable and fascinating days.

During the workshop you will be assisted to make a connection with your highest spiritual guide at this time.  You will also learn several ways to channel your guide and you will have lots of practice doing these with a partner.  Once you have completed the class, you may wish to learn more about your new gift.  I highly recommend you purchase the book “Opening to Channel” by Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer as an excellent resource to help you grow and understand your ability.

"Guides will choose a channel with a vocabulary or skill that will be a match for their work together. Scientific guides may choose channels with a scientific vocabulary. Artistic guides may choose artists. Philosophical guides may choose channels interested in philosophy, and so on. When guides transmit information outside of your vocabulary, they will search for the closest words you have available. That is why your guide may feel so much like you when you, for there is a great alignment of energy and purpose."  From "Opening to Channel"

The 2 day channeling class may be offered over 2 consecutive days or 2 days separated by a week or more. The following is a sample two day class plan. 

Class Requirements:

  • Please read over the sample class agenda and see if this is what you are expecting in a channeling class.
  • To prepare for the class, it is useful if you have already read "Opening to Channel" or at least had a good look at the book, since it answers most questions students have about conscious channeling. This saves me having to answer such questions in class and allows for more time to practice with partners. (Although students certainly can ask questions during class.)
  • I usually require at least 4 people to hold a local class so that the students have a variety of practice partners.  This makes for a more successful class. (Click Here for minimum number of students)
  • A $50 deposit is required to hold your space in the class. (Click here for Class Fees.)
  • Students will be given directions to the class, and they will receive additional pre-class instructions shortly before the class.

It is a great benefit if students have read "Opening to Channel" by Sanaya Roman and Duane 
Packer. It explains what conscious channeling is about and answers most question students have.  This allows us to spend more time in class actually doing channeling exercises.  

How I Book Classes

Rather than pre-schedule a class, the first student who books a class date essentially determines the class dates. Then the class can fill up, or it may contain the minimum number of students. If you do not see a class listed at the top of this page, then  no one has asked for a class yet.  If you do see a class listed, then a minimum size group has scheduled confirmed set of dates with me. 

Minimum StudentsThe Channeling class requires a minimum of 4 students for a local class (Vancouver BC area) and 10 students for a class outside of the Vancouver/Lower Mainland area.  Students may suggest a set of convenient dates for the class all the students. (for Vancouver Island and the BC Interior, please contact me for the minimum numbers.) 

Class Fees

Class Held In the Vancouver/White Rock Area and Lower Mainland - $500 CDN
Classes Held Outside the Lower Mainland but within Canada - $550 CDN.
International Classes (Outside Canada) - $600 USD
