CE Institute LLC


This live, hands-on, in-person class has special operations given it has been scheduled during the COVID-19 pandemic. This will be our first in-person class in 2 1/2 years because we take COVID extremely seriously:

  • This class will be limited to around 10 students. Please do not register unless you are serious about attending. We require a minimum of 6 students to hold class, so there's a limited number of class cancellations and changes that can be processed while keeping the class/school operational.
  • We require 7-days notice to change or cancel registration which will be processed with a $25 admin fee.  Students may make a one-time change to another class with 7-days notice prior to the start of training at no charge. Changes or cancellations within 7-days of the class start date cannot be honored, unless the student provides a verifiable COVID positive test that was diagnosed within 10-days prior to the start of class. The verifiable test must be provided prior to the class start date.
  • This is a live, in-person hands-on bodywork training class. Students will be kept separated during lecture and theory, and will be allowed close contact during hands-on practice, as long as they follow the school's policies. Students do not have to participate in hands-on training to earn CE credit, their only requirement is to attend, watch, listen and be physically present during instruction. 
  • Students are required to wear masks at ALL times over their mouth and nose while on campus (except for the small break room where drinks or snacks can be consumed). No exceptions will be made for this policy for ANY reason.  Any student who does not follow our mask wearing policies will be immediately discharged from campus without a refund. Neck goiters and respirators that allow for respiratory discharge are not acceptable masks. Our mask policies are similar to what is provided with close-contact on airplanes. The school will provide acceptable masks if the instructor feels the need to do so. Our school is usually kept unreasonably cold so wearing masks in our classroom is often more durable than most.
  • Temperature of students will be taken prior to the start of class, and may be checked again at any time. Any student exhibiting an elevated temperature or fever must leave the school.
  • Students must arrive at least 20-minutes prior to the start of class (and no greater than 1-hour prior to the start) for further screening and registration. Any student who does not arrive at least 20-minutes prior to the start of class may be denied admission without a refund. The school is attempting to limit the number of people on campus at one time. It is the instructor who takes the temperature and screens students, and they cannot do this after they have started their class. Class will not be delayed for tardy students.
  • Any student who exhibits outward signs of illness with either coughing or sneezing, or any other COVID-19 sign or symptom will be required to leave campus. Please do not register with us if you suffer from allergies or any other medical condition that causes sneezing or coughing, especially while wearing a mask. Because coughing and sneezing are signs of COVID-19, we will not distress and distract other attendees (including the instructor) with anyone coughing or sneezing in class. Please do not show up for class with outward signs of illness because you will be told to leave.
  • Hygiene and sanitation measures will be heightened. The school provides hand sanitizer, sinks with soap and water, HEPA filters as well as disinfection products. Any attendee who does not follow our hygiene and sanitation instructions will be required to leave campus without a refund. 
  • The instructor will not wear a mask during lecture, so that hearing impaired and deaf students, plus students who are seated 20+ feet away can clearly lip read and hear the instructor. Students are not permitted to be within 6 feet, or approach the instructor during lecture. 
  • To mitigate attendance, we recommend live in-person training for students who can easily drive to our downtown Miami school, given the chance for cancellation is increased during the pandemic. We are not responsible for any costs incurred by a student with a cancelled class.  This class can be cancelled for any reason the school requires, especially if the COVID-19 infection rates significantly increase, prior to the start. Please keep in mind it is in the school's interest to hold class to remain operational, so we will do our best to provide class under reasonable circumstances.
  • Students will be required to agree to these policies in writing via email prior to the start of class for physical admission to the school.  Any student who does not agree to these policies in writing at least 7 days prior to the start of class will have their attendance/registration cancelled/refunded, minus our $25 admin process fee. There are no refunds available for disagreeable students within 7-days of the class start.
  • Any student who attempts to defy our policies is subject to have their conduct (unethical or otherwise) reported to their licensing board for potential disciplinary action - at the discretion of the board. They will also be discharged and denied further interaction with CE Institute LLC.
  • Changes to our COVID-19 cancellation policies can be made for any reason at any time, at sole discretion of the instructor or school.  Please note that we cannot allow anyone to possibly infect others by claiming medical needs or anything else to attempt to exempt themself from our instructions and requirements, especially given the close proximity with hands-on contact allowed during this training, plus the fact that other instructors and schools may be able to accommodate students when we cannot, and we also have similar training and/or CE credit available, with both live and online instructional delivery methods, beyond our physical classroom.  Thank you.

    CE Institute's Japanese Reiki Classes are taught by Instructor Selena Belisle & Instructor Desiree Collazo

    This authentic Japanese Reiki class was written and is regularly taught by CE Institute LLC Founder, Selena Belisle.  Selena became a Certified Reiki Master in the Usui Shiki Ryoho style from Robert Traknis in Boston, Ma in 1996.  She recertified at The International Center for Reiki Training in Maui, Hawaii in Holy Fire Reiki in 2017.  She has completed additional various Reiki Certifications and attunements from other instructors around the world.  Selena is a member of several professional bodywork industry associations including the International Center for Reiki Training.

    Selena has been practicing multiple forms of bodywork for 30 years.  She started her bodywork career as a sports massage therapist in 1989 – she was part of Team USA and has won 3 WAF World Championships amongst other various minor athletic titles.  She also founded and managed an alternative health care practice that served tens of thousands with over 40 massage therapists, 4 acupuncturists and 4 chiropractors in Braintree & Quincy, Massachusetts from 1996 to 2005 (which she successfully sold).  She then spent another 5-years training and managing a 2nd staff as a Newbury Street Spa Owner in Boston, MA from 2005-2010.  You can view a more extensive list of Selena’s publications, training and experience by clicking HERE.  In 2011, Selena moved to Miami FL and created CE Institute which is singularly focused on teaching various forms of alternative health and bodywork.  Selena is very involved in the day-to-day school operations and personally instructs many of the classes as well.

    Throughout the years, many physical bodywork therapies were Selena's main focus.  She found plentiful hands-on manual and massage therapy applications that can provide incredible pain relief and benefits that surgery and pharmaceuticals cannot.  However, it has always been an interest of Selena's of how and why different clients respond differently to treatments - and this regularly brought her back to similar conclusions that it was possible that there are "energy matches" between practitioner and client (and sometimes there are not matches which will create less than therapeutic results).  With 30 years of bodywork experience, Selena's interest in energy medicine has grown, and today, she is initiating studies and education about the profound effects of our individual energies and what we should look forward to in our future.  Selena believes in the next 50-100+ years, we will discover different energy "types" amongst our people, just like we have blood types.  Although she also feels through her professional experience that these energy types will be much more extensive than our traditionally categorized "blood types" - but we do not have developed testing for our energy types like we have in today's blood types, hormone tests, bone density, etc.

    Selena’s vast teaching background in evidence-based bodywork modalities provided her a wonderful amount of experience to create an authentic Reiki training, attunement and certification course.  This includes a wonderful visual Japanese Reiki powerpoint presentation with useful printed student handouts.  Many Reiki instructors teach Reiki by word-of-mouth from what their instructor told them (as this was the classical method of instruction dating back to Usui himself).  But, because Selena formally trained in multiple styles of Reiki from various instructors, and with her experience in teaching other bodywork modalities, she was able to create a comprehensive Reiki CE class that gets to the very root of this classic Japanese healing method, with rare purposeful facts, teaching tools and information.  Join us at CE Institute LLC for a superb learning experience in this wonderful healing art modality.



    Instructor Desiree Collazo, LMT, was attuned into Reiki Mastery on April 8, 2001, by Jose Marquez, who was attuned by Serge L. Delinois, who in turn as attuned by Laurie Grant, who in turn was attuned by James Davies, who in turn was attuned by Dr. Arthur Robertson.  Dr. Robertson was initiated into Reiki by Master-teacher Virginia Samdahl.  Ms Samdahl was the first occidental Reiki Master attuned by Mrs. Hawayo Takata. After becoming a Reiki Master, Dr. Robertson studied for about ten years with Reiki Master-teacher, Iris Ishikuro, who also was initiated by Mrs. Takata.  In 1938, Mrs. Takata received her Master attunement from Chujiro Hayashi.  Mr. Hayashi in turn received his Reiki Mastership from Dr. Mikao Usui in 1925.

    Desiree’s interest in Reiki emerged when she met a Holistic Chiropractor and received a combination of physical manipulation and energy work in 1998.  She experienced immediate relief from a chronic neck issue and enrolled in the Therapeutic Massage Program at Florida College of Natural Health that same year.  She also received her First Level Attunement on August 6, 2000 and was asked to practice and teach with her mentor/instructor Jose Marquez at his Acupuncture clinic.

    Desiree worked as a Reiki practitioner and instructor for the Downtown Oriental Group from September 2001 until October 2003.  She has been teaching Reiki CEU courses for Florida Board of Massage since 2003 and has also written a Reiki Facial protocol for Licensed Estheticians. 

    Desiree studied and received her Master degree in Karuna System of Reiki on February 18, 2002 and Tibetan Master degree in the Reiki Method of Natural Healing on March 24, 2002.  She has also been initiated as a Practitioner of Magnified Healing, Third Phase, Light Healing and is also a certified Master Teacher in Magnified Healing of the God Most High of the Universe, which she received in May 17, 2009.
