Reiki First Degree Course – Level 1

This certificated Usui Reiki level 1 First Degree Course 'Shoden' is the first level of Reiki and focuses on using the system to achieve individual balance and wellbeing as well as introducing some basics for using the Reiki system of energy healing with family and friends. 

It consists of  pre-course reading and simple energy exercises and a full day practical course.  

A comprehensive study pack is provided ahead of the course that includes a study book and two CD's.  This gives much of the background and history of Reiki and sets out the Reiki 'precepts', meditation exercises and self-treatment techniques that will be refered to on the course itself. A detailed system for using Reiki on other people is also included.

The course itself includes the following:

  • Learning to work with energy, using simple exercises and techniques
  • Three Reiju Empowerments (connections to Reiki)
  • Reiki meditations, learning the Japanese 'Hatsurei Ho' technique
  • Using Reiki to provide self treatments 
  • Feeling and scanning energy fields
  • Treating others, demonstration and discussion
  • Giving and receiving Reiki with fellow students 

We have a maximum of six participants on each course.  Refreshments and lunch are provided on-site by Dandelion vegan cafe.  Following the course, participants are encouraged to develop their own practice with simple Reiki meditation, self-treatment, integrating the Reiki precepts and, where possible, practicing using Reiki with family and friends.  The Reiki CDs also provides recordings to use at home for meditation and self-treatment. 

Ongoing support is also provided with regular workshops that are optional to attend.
