I believe my participation in the Reiki classes offered by Patricia have been life altering for me. Part of the Master / Teacher class was setting goals which for me was life changing. I am getting better at setting boundaries. The biggest change was being able to quit smoking. I do have severe gastro-esophageal reflux; Reiki has helped in dealing with not only the disease but also helping me quit smoking. Stopping smoking was one of my goals for my Master class and the hardest to overcome. It has been a year since I have smoked. I have seen a lot of easing of pain and relief by becoming a Reiki volunteer at Maine Medical Center. A child was suffering with a form of cancer and could not sleep. After administering Reiki that evening, it was the first night he slept through the night. Family members have said that my sending Reiki for TMJ has given them relief from jaw pain. I feel honored to have been able to receive my certification. It took a year and a few months to earn my certification. I am looking forward to starting to teach and practice Reiki therapy as soon as my space is available.

"As a Reiki Master/Teacher apprentice and bodywork recipient, Patricia's work helped me to immediately connect to my innermost energy and stay there to gain growth provoking insights. Her work is soothing and her intuition knew right where to meet mine and help my skills grow. Incredibly grateful for her pioneering efforts into the Western medical system at MMC, reminding professionals of their natural healing gifts."

I was privileged to benefit from Patricia's teaching throughout my journey to become a Reiki Master/Teacher. Patricia utilized her experience to guide my growth from Reiki practitioner to Reiki Master in an individualized, insightful manner. Her healing and instruction enabled me to achieve a deeper understanding of Reiki practice and myself. I am proud that my Reiki lineage includes Patricia Keene.

Patricia provided support throughout a yearlong apprenticeship in my becoming a Reiki Master/Teacher. I received blessings of inner guidance from her during monthly Reiki sessions. After the master attunement and plenty of practice, my awareness of Reiki’s subtle and gentle effects grew. Patricia included ample opportunities in the teaching of Reiki I and II, so my confidence grew as well. Patricia was accessible through every step along the way and willingly provides ongoing consultation.
Nancy Weber, Polarity APP, Reiki Master/Teacher
My name is Sylvia Murphy. I am a public school teacher who has studied Reiki for over two and a half years. I have had the privilege of studying under Patricia to earn my Reiki Master/Teacher Certificate. I can honestly say she has provided me an outstanding training in the process of becoming a Reiki Master and teacher of Reiki. She has facilitated my growth as Reiki Master with an attunement, frequent reflections and discussions on my personal growth and growth in my practice of Reiki. She has also facilitated my spiritual growth with unique body work which incorporates Reiki with Polarity and cranial sacral modalities. She has facilitated my growth as a teacher of Reiki with organized class curricula and student teaching of Reiki I and Reiki II classes. These classes included meditations, the story of Dr. Usui, practice of the Reiki symbols, practice of attunements, Reiki hand positions and much more. I am deeply grateful to Patricia for her very comprehensive training in this modality. Although I feel it takes a life time to fully grow into the title as a Reiki Master/Instructor, I feel very well prepared to practice Reiki as well as teach and facilitate groups in this process. Thank you so very much Patricia!
I also want to thank you for introducing me to Reiki, our friendship, and the amazing journey of the last year. Life is so much more than we can ever put down on paper, and no class description can truly reveal the journey that lies ahead. In retrospect, it was one of those grand choices in life that actually help shape and define you as a person. When I woke up this morning, something you said yesterday came back to me - that after graduation, we strive to "become the Reiki". So much more profound than it sounds, but a worthy goal to work towards, especially in these days and times.
"Patricia offers caring, knowledgeable, skillful and mystical healing sessions which leave one feeling refreshed, revitalized and inspired! She is a gifted teacher as well, and I am honored to be her Reiki Master/Teacher apprentice for one year. Her Reiki classes and training are enriching, deepening experiences that allow her students to carry on as effective healing forces on many levels in this world."
