First Degree Reiki

A day course held in my home in the beautiful chalk downs of West Dorset, where you will focus on practical energy work. There will be no more than three students per course.

A delicious and nutritions lunch will be provided by Feed the Soul who use superfoods, herbs, spices and flowers to enhance and enrich body, mind and spirit. Happy, healthy, vegan and organic!

During the morning of your course, I will explain the history of Reiki, you will then go through three simple and powerful ‘connection’ rituals, called ‘Reiju’ empowerments. These traditional Japanese empowerments open up the channels through which Reiki flows. This will enable you to use Reiki for your own benefit and for the benefit of the people around you – your family and friends. This ability will stay with you for life, you will never lose it.

In the afternoon, we will spend some time talking about how to give Reiki to yourself and other people, and we will demonstrate some ‘standard’ hand positions. Personally I think it is better to work intuitively, you will need to develop this ability, but it will come quickly if you dedicate time to your practice. We will also talk about ‘scanning’ with your hands and experiencing the Aura and Chakras.

I will also give you a Western style empowerment as this is standard UK practice and also a lovely experience!

I have studied Japanese Reiki as well as Western style Reiki (Usui and Tibetan), many UK teachers only have a Western lineage coming through Mrs Takata, who brought Reiki to the West in the 1970s, Reiki was passed to her through the Japanese military. I am lucky to be able to offer both Reiju Empowerments passed through Dr Usui’s surviving students and the more standard Reiki Attunements.

My Japanese Reiki lineage:
