Booking or Registering For In-Person Classes
My Live or In-Person Classes are usually held in the Vancouver area (Canada), most often at my home in White Rock. But I will travel into Vancouver, or to it's suburbs and elsewhere in the Lower Mainland for a class of 3 or more students, or for someone with special needs and the space for me to teach. For master level requirements, please consult with me. In the case of small groups of family and/or friends, the class may also be at the students' residence, or in a hall.
Classes are usually held from 9 am to 5 pm and we take an hour break for lunch. Students may bring their own lunch/snacks or we can go to a nearby restaurant.
I usually restrict class size to 6 students so I can give each individual more attention, but I have taught weekend retreats for large classes over 20 in size. For classes on Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast and the Gulf Islands, see my Out of Town info below.
Private classes are available for no additional fee, but are usually limited to small groups or families.
of Town and International Classes -- I
do teach out of the area and usually ask for compensation for traveling
expenses by way of an increased class fee and a minimum numer of
enough students in a class to be able to justify expenses and time
The host of a large class can negotiate a personal discount or bonus
organizing the class. I have taught classes elsewhere in BC and
in Canada, as well as in Japan, Madrid,
south of Spain, Amsterdam and the USA..
Arranging a Class -- Normally,
rather than pre-schedule the live classes, the first student who
a class date essentially determines what I will teach on that day.
I will then post the class at my Reiki Home page.
Then the class can fill up, or it may contain just the one
student. I never cancel a class other than for an illness or
emergency (both are very rare.)
What Dates? -- I
am able to
teach any day
of the week or on weekends - usually 9 am to 5 pm. However I try
to keep a weekend or two each month for family time. I do try to
flexible, so if you do not see a
class scheduled, then simply propose some
dates for a class.
If you would like a class in your area, or have questions about available dates, then Contact Me (Richard Rivard).

ALL Reiki classes over a distance via my Internet
Training (but NOT the Channeling).
and students may begin anytime you wish. They are normally one-on-one
classes unless you are studying with a partner or friend.
no set schedule and students have up to one month to complete a class
(in person classes are one or two day classes so one month is plenty of
time to learn and practice a distant class).
I usually have
distant students at one time and sometimes I will have current
students at the same level interact with each other for distant practice.

Tree Saver Discount - If you are taking the Distant / Internet Class and choose to use only the Internet class pages for the reference material, you can save on all the Threshold Reiki classes. The on-line class pages are the same content as the printed manual and videos, and you can view them on-line at your leisure, even after class. If you prefer to work only with the on-line class pages, and not receive the printed manual from me, I will discount the class price. You will still receive a printed certificate upon completion and Master level will receive the videos on CD/DVD. (Note that paying the regular or TreeSaver fees still gives you access to the on-line class pages.)
