|Level 3 Lesson 2 Additional Material
Additional materialThis manual is basic, which means that there is considerable scope for the teacher to add whatever material they feel is important to communicate to their students. Keep in mind also that you may, and you don’t have to do it, want to add one or two questions from your own material. So you can send out the questions in an attachment together with the final exam to your students. The final exam, you send out to your students, and mark each question according to the Answer Sheet for each Levels Final Exam.
Considerations regarding the performanceThis material does not describe how to do different things because different teachers perform them in different ways. So do not forget to add these descriptions in your additional materials. This often involves three points of information
• What can / will happen / be done before the performance
• What can / will happen / be done during the performance
• What can / will happen / be done after the performance
To plan the time and lessonsBefore you have your first course, it is important to make a schedule so you can be sure to keep up with everything that must be done. This is especially important for off-line courses. It may seem to be too much work, but take the advantage of how your own learning days were scheduled, to consider what was good and what was not so good or missing. If you have online courses, you should do the same thing but write down what classes to read instead. You should be able to take advantage of what you do for offline courses or vice versa. While it is good to evolve even as a teacher, you have then at least laid a foundation that you will not have to change in a hurry.
In the case of off-line courses begin by dividing the total time in different passes (1-2 hours at the time) determine the subject for what the passes should be about. Write down your thoughts. Do you have something you should have a "talk" about? It is best to write down the scheme, there is nothing more boring than listening to someone who is reading the text before the class. Remember that you should have things that are not in study material scheduled throughout their studies, but do not forget to insert pauses (it is normal that we are not able to listen effectively more than 40-60 minutes). Allow for even the unplanned things that may happen, set aside 30-60 minutes for unforeseen events. If nothing happens you could have some extra exercises handy.
The best thing that you can do is to maintain a good standard of education. Let your students evaluate your courses. It need not be large and difficult, but it requires that they can take any criticism they will receive and consider it a great help to make the courses more attractive. Generally you will only need three questions.
• What did you like about this course
• What did you least like about the course
• What did you miss
Students often have lots of questions about one or the other. If there are fewer students, they tend to be easier to answer as the questions come, but if there are many students it may be better to collect all the questions. – This includes online courses, gather them into some sort of chat, which everyone can access and be involved in. When it comes to online courses, you might need to make them mandatory, but it''s your choice.

Here we present to you the Dai-Ko-Myo, the master symbol for Reiki. In this section you will be given a description of what the Dai-Ko-Myo is and you will also find to the information of how it is drawn. The Dai Ko Myo is the symbol obtained only by those who wish to become Reiki Master/Teachers. This symbol is used to open up the full the full force of the Universal Healing that is Reiki. In Japanese this symbol translates to “Great Bright Light” and it is used to seal any attunements or healings into the individual’s body and aura. Not only is it used for this purpose it can also be used to seal Reiki in other objects as well, not just humans and animals.
The Dai Ko Myo allows people to continue with their healings by attaching a constant flow of energy to them or the objects they seal using this symbol. The Dai Ko Myo, when used correctly, represents the liveliest, authentic and present part of the whole Reiki path. This symbol can enlighten ones path, help us understand our true self once again and tap into the deepest part of our soul in an exploration to reach the essence of being.
