College of Nursing offers Reiki healing art training
By Brittney Messingschlager

The healing art Reiki training is being offered at Florida Atlantic University's Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing, taught by Pamir Kiciman at the Boca Raton campus.

Reiki training is a healing art that practitioners say offers assistance in balancing one's spiritual, emotional, mental and bodily health. They say it helps bring balance between an individual and the universe.

“Reiki can help you to live with compassion and wisdom. It can also be your personal HMO.” Pamir Kiciman said.

The course is taught at FAU’s new College of Nursing, a "green" facility built following the principles of Feng Shui – the ancient Chinese practice used to balance heaven and earth.

“I think it takes a spiritual person for Reiki to fully work” said cultural communications major, Jeanine Manewitz, 21, of Boynton Beach. “It’s a practice and a way of life – a practice you don’t need books and writing to fully comprehend.”

Level one Reiki Training is a two-day course, usually running from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. In this classes, which never have more that six people, participants are taught tools to use in life and how to maintain balance and peace.

“Spend the weekend, and you will have it with you for the rest of your life.” Kiciman said.

Presently only level one training sessions are offered. But if there is demand, levels 2 and 3 could be added later, Kiciman said.

“I would highly recommend the Reiki lessons to everyone, especially if they're interested in different modalities and holistic forms of healing,” said registered nurse Kathy Marshall, who took the level one Reiki course in June.

After completing each level, the participant receives a certificate and can choose if he or she would like to move forward into the practices of Reiki.

When individuals complete level one, Kiciman gives them a way contact him, and he offers to work with them as a “life coach” as long as the participant wants.

“Reiki is a life tool,” Kiciman said.

Added Marshall: “I am very thankful FAU has opened the doors to this type of healing. The school has done the community a huge favor.”
