About Me - Richard Rivard

Last Updated: October 22, 2016
Who Am I? A little biography on me just to give you an idea of how I found my way to Reiki. Also I mention some of the training I have received since that time.
My Training History
This is a chart that not only shows the various teachers I have trained with, but also demonstrates that all Reiki practitioners can trace their Reiki roots back to a student of Mikao Usui.
My Reiki Certificates I sometimes get queries on the authenticity of my training so I set up this page to allow readers to view my certificates.  It also serves as an interesting comparison of certificate styles, Western and Japanese.
Where Am I Located? Obviously if you are coming for a live class, you will need to know where I live and hot to get there. I have some maps to assist you and also for those visiting the city, I have some info on where to stay and how to get around the greater Vancouver area. 
What is Threshold Reiki?
I feel Reiki is just one step along an individual's path of spiritual growth.  I feel each person needs to find their own unique path, but they may wish to solicit assistance along the way.
Origin of Threshold Reiki
When I first began teaching Reiki, I thought it was all the same energy, that every Reiki was the same.  This made me curious about Reiki - didn't everyone get the same thing, and the same strength? 
H.My Symbols After having at least 2 interesting experiences in receiving energy symbols, I decided I should share these at my web page in order to assist others having difficulty validating their own similar experiences.
