Five Element Reiki – Shamanism – Coaching

Over 20 years ago, Sara Burns envisioned professional energy healers being widely respected and recognized by the medical community for their ability to offer a viable form of complimentary medicine.

Sara recognized that Reiki was a powerful energy healing modality. But, also recognized that traditional Reiki training failed to teach students how to discern and understand the meaning of various energy patterns, how to manage energy movement through the body as well as how they related to an individual’s spiritual issues, emotions and physical health.

This lack of training has limited traditional Reiki practitioners in their abilities-and confidence- to effectively create intentional outcomes from their treatments.  Unfortunately, this has prevented many good healers from stepping into the role as a Professional Energy Healer.

As an outcome of her vision and 20 plus years of research in energetic healing modalities, Sara created Sacred Transformations® in-depth energy healing programs which includes her unique healing techniques of Five-Element Reiki™, shamanism, and professional communication skills in hopes of helping others to establish their Professional Energy Healing careers.


Why My Fundamental and Advanced Programs are Now Closed:

In 2006, I embarked on a journey of teaching Reiki programs, aiming to deepen practitioners’ understanding and raise the acceptance of Reiki as a respected healing practice, akin to massage therapy, acupuncture, and chiropractic services, often recognized by insurance providers.

However, a troubling trend continues to emerge within the Reiki community. Some Reiki teachers, driven solely by financial motives, promoted the idea that one could attain professional mastery in just a matter of three weekends. This rush for certification left many questioning the effectiveness of Reiki as a healing modality.

Many students who went through all attunement levels, still found themselves questioning if they knew what they were really doing. And, at the same time, others sought the opportunity to take advantage claiming Mastery and advertising beyond their knowledge and capacities.

I witnessed this in my own program, which led me to stop teaching my two 15-week Reiki 1 & 2 Fundamental and Advanced Programs. Without my knowledge, I discovered several students began advertising they were professional within a week or two of starting their training.

It’s crucial to recognize that the true power of Reiki lies not in the number of attunements or the accumulation of symbols, but in a profound understanding of how energy operates within the body and across energy fields. Unfortunately, the prevailing marketing approach in Reiki courses continue to emphasize rapid progression through all levels, neglecting the importance of safe, effective and professional client healing.

While I have stopped these programs, primarily because I recognize that paper doesn’t necessarily mean anything, I know that there are gifted Reiki Practitioners who a yearning to understand and learn more as they establish their own professional healing practice.

Therefore, I remain available for private mentorship sessions, offering genuine seekers the opportunity to refine their skills and gain comprehensive insights into the art of energy healing.


My Reiki Mentorship Sessions can cover a range of topics tailored to meet your needs that previously were include in my Fundamental and Advanced Energy Healing Programs.

Topics that are included but not limited to:

  • 1. Techniques for safely opening and developing psychic abilities.
  • 2. Safe releasing of excess energies.
  • 3. Energetic sensing of the elements.
  • 4. Comprehensive chakra training.
  • 5. Approaches to address psychological issues.
  • 6. Identification and clearing of energy bodies.
  • 7. Shamanic connections with healing guides in the Upper, Middle, and Lower Worlds.

In addition to mentoring, I offer personal coaching to guide you through your own spiritual journey since embracing Reiki Energy.  Many practitioners starting on their journey, oftentimes, discover personal issues holding them back or blocking their abilities due to personal histories which will surface after the Reiki attunements.

The privacy of mentorship will allow practitioners to safely discuss personal challenges, openly question what they are doing in their healing practices and address emotional and spiritual blockages that stop them from succeeding as healers.


Because the sessions are based on what you are seeking to learn, two hour sessions will be charged at the same rate as my healing sessions.  Detailed information about my services fees can be found on the service page of my website: Click Here.

I welcome teaching anyone who holds a desire to deepen your Reiki practice, fostering a genuine understanding of its potential for healing and transformation.
