I will not anger, I will not worry, I will do my work honestly, I will be kind to all living things, I will give thanks for my many blessings….Mikao Usui
I started my healing journey many years ago, initially qualifying as a healer within the National Federation of Healers, as with most people though I did not stop there and I found myself drawn to Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki, in 2011 I completed my journey to become a Reiki Master, since then I have trained many of my own students who have gone on to be practitioners and teachers.
I love teaching, as a student myself I find big groups can be less educational, plus students can be left feeling they have not had enough attention from the teacher, with that in mind, I keep my classes small to ensure everyone gets as much personal attention as possible so classes will be a maximum of 8 students.
Whether you are interested in refreshing your Usui Reiki training, furthering your spiritual training, or you are just starting your Reiki journey, my Reiki workshops can give you what you need. Read on to find out more about Usui Reiki.
What is Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki? It is a Japanese ancient complementary energy healing system dating back to the 1800’s when it was revealed to Mikao Usui, hence this traditional style is named for him. There are various styles available but this is the original, traditional style. It is advisable to find out which style you feel will suit you best before committing to a course. It is non-invasive and can be used with anyone from babies to the elderly, animals, situations and events past, present or future.
Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki has no religious leanings, no dogma, just tradition which has been passed down from Master to Master since the 1800’s so whatever your background this healing system will suit you.
Why Study Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki? Reiki is a non-invasive healing energy which can be learned by anyone willing to study. Reiki can be used on the self, friends, family, animals & even inanimate objects or events/situations. Anyone who wants to heal themselves and others should study Reiki, it is a great starting point. Many Reiki students will go on to study other types of healing modalities, develop their psychic gifts and more but the journey is individual so let it take you where you need to go, Spirit will guide you if you do not know what you want to do.
Which Level Is Right For Me? Everyone regardless of experience will need to commence with First Degree Reiki before they can take the Second & Third Degrees or become a Reiki Master & Teacher.
Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki First Degree (Shoden): With the First Degree, you will be Attuned (connected) to the Reiki energy, taught how to work with it as well as getting practical experience of healing. After this 1 day course you will be able to go away and practice to your heart’s content and when ready you can study the Second Degree. There are no set timescales, the journey is your own, so any timescales are your own too. You do not need to study all three levels, however, once you are qualified with Level I, you are only able to use it on yourself, friends & family and animals but you cannot charge for this service nor can you obtain insurance to practice. To set up as a practitioner you will need to be qualified to the Second Degree of Reiki. To take Level II Reiki it is recommended that you either have lots of case studies under your belt, or 6-12 months of healing sessions, if you are not getting to practice a great deal, this will ensure you get the most out of the workshop. If you need more practice, ask me about my Reiki Shares.
Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Second Degree (Okuden): With the Second Degree there is an opportunity to compare experiences post-Reiki I, then be Attuned to the higher energy whereby you will be given the Reiki symbols to use in your healing sessions, this will make the healing sessions more powerful & allow you achieve better results as well as being able to use Reiki in more specific ways. You will also learn how to use the Reiki energy in many other ways than the simple healing of First Degree Usui Reiki. Once qualified you will be able to obtain insurance and set up as a practitioner, taking on paying clients. If you want to go on to become a full Reiki Master and teacher, you will require Reiki III & IIIa which I can also instruct you in. You can get dates & book here.
Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Third Degree (Shinpiden): The Third Degree will allow you to learn about higher level Reiki symbols, energy work and knowledge, for those who wish to teach in due course, you will be shown how to train your students. You may not wish to teach but just wish to have the Reiki Master title, this is absolutely fine, you may be drawn to teach later on so it is still valuable. I did not plan to teach when I took the course but I felt I should hold all the certificates anyway! You can get dates & book here.
