Reiki is a form of energy healing that requires one to be 'attuned' by someone else with the ability to 'pass on the symbols' to you. I am not sure if I prescribe to that notion. I think anybody can attune themselves to reiki themselves just by looking at the symbols and visualizing them being placed inside you. But aside from that. I recommend you get a copy of Essential Reiki by Diane Stein. It contains the history of reiki, illustrates and explains the symbols. Shows you how to do the placement of your hands and walks through the reiki attunement for all three levels. Reiki is not the only form of energy healing.
There is a book by Richard Gordon called "Quantum-Touch - the power to heal." And it gives a very good description of how to accumulate energy through breath work and intention to send energy to yourself, someone else at hand as well as distance healing.
Robert Bruce's "Astral Dynamic" book goes into a deeper explanation of how one actually accumulates energy from outside your body to do healings, in the New Energy Ways section.
Learning how to do Quantum-Touch or use Robert Bruce's technique (which is very similar to QT) can be learned with just the cost of the books. Although, Robert has posted a free pdf on his website on New Energy Ways.
There are Quantum-Touch seminars offered by people who become certified. You can find the workshop calendar on their website: quantumtouch.com But it truly is an easy method to learn by yourself from the book.
For Reiki attunement workshops, you could check the bulletin board at your local health food store, maybe or new age shop. Or try googling "Reiki Classes near me." I just did that and got several hits.
You can also google "Reiki Shares" near me. You might luck out and find people near you that hold regular 'reiki shares where they practice reiki and do reiki sessions on each other and sometimes they open up to the public.
Good luck in your journey.
