Frequently Asked Questions:
About Your Instructor, Jessica Sharp
I completed my RMT certification in 2013 following a 1-year training program, and since then I have loved bringing the transformative healing power of Reiki to my clients and students. Even though I am technically a Reiki Master, I don’t use that term to describe myself because I am always growing in my skills and abilities.
Teaching Reiki is my passion and dharma, and I absolutely LOVE teaching in a long format. In this class I emphasize passing on what I learned in my own apprenticeship, plus my depth of knowledge and experience, including lessons learned the hard way, over my 10+ years as a full-time professional Reiki practitioner and teacher.
I am certified in Alchemical Alignment: Bodywork for Trauma Resolution and Embodiment of Spirit, Shamanic Soul Retrieval and have been trained in SEVA Acupressure Release techniques. I weave these modalities into my session organically as needed, and pass the knowledge and insight gained from this blending of skills on to my students.

“I definitely recommend Jessica’s Comprehensive Reiki Practitioner Training to anyone interested in learning Reiki. It’s the perfect class for those interested in starting a Reiki practice or for those seeking self-growth. The training program is just as it is called… comprehensive! She covers Reiki techniques and so much more that is involved with learning a healing modality. Not only did we learn the techniques of the traditional Japanese style of Reiki, but she covers case studies, techniques used for common ailments and issues, ethics, guidelines for working with different demographics (children and the elderly), tips for running a Reiki practice successfully, and more. However, the mentorship throughout the year was the most valuable aspect in my opinion. Jessica is right along side you for the entire year and is a wonderful teacher and mentor. After completing this class, I feel more than prepared to accomplish my goal of being a Reiki practitioner! Thank you, Jessica!” ~ Emily S.
“I knew that this class would be transformative for me, what I did not know was how. The deep personal healing that is taking place while learning was incredibly unexpected. It’s hard, very hard, but it’s so worth it. I feel beyond blessed that my guides led me to you – they are so smart, they led me to someone who made me feel safe, someone who created an environment where I feel heard and can learn and practice with so much freedom. I needed this so much and did not even realize it until now.” ~ Melissa S.
“When my Reiki journey began, I had previously heard about Reiki but never thought to practice myself. I knew my focus was on deepening my spirituality and healing past traumas. Soon as I began the class, changes started happening within me and within my life. The structure of the class and knowledge from Jessica has truly changed me and my life. Jessica’s Reiki class is truly a reflection of her heart and soul. I’m happy I was guided to experience Jessica, learn about Reiki, how to work with different elements, work with energy and much more!” ~ Marcella B.
“I am immensely grateful to Jessica for her guidance and wisdom as a practitioner, teacher, and mentor. I met Jessica three years ago, when I attended her weekend Reiki for Stress Relief. It was such an eye opener to energy work that I signed up for her intensive 10 month Reiki Master Practitioner class. Jessica helped me trust in my own intuition and gave me the tools needed to bring me back to my own soul purpose.” ~ Lisa H.
