About This Course
Our Usui Shiki Reiki Level 1 is the traditional Western branch of Reiki as taught by Hawayo Takata and offers training in a Western format.
There are three levels to the system of Reiki:
- Level 1 which teaches how to practise healing the self and the basics about helping others. At this level you are heading out on the path to self-discovery, this is just the beginning.
- Level 2 is where students learn three symbols that aid in focusing the energy. At this level you have the opportunity to develop a professional treatment practice from these teachings.
- Level 3 focuses on personal development and teaches you how to perform attunements. At this level you move into discovering more about the mysteries of life, how you relate to yourself and the universe. This can be practiced for the rest of your life and is always a personal practice which can develop into a professional teaching practice if you so desire.
In Western branches the word Reiki has been translated as ‘Universal Energy’. It may be the case that the kanji ‘rei’ was translated as ‘Universal’ because the term ‘spiritual’ was not the focus of the Western practice during the twentieth Century and it would have been more acceptable not to refer to it. The word Reiki is also used in the West to represent a healing system.
You will learn about the origins of Reiki and gain an understanding of Reiki practices including the Reiki story, hand positions for treating self and others, how to conduct a Reiki treatment, the Chakra System and the promotion of self healing through ‘life energy’ or the ‘spiritual life force’.
You will receive Level 1 Reiki Attunements from a highly qualified and experienced Reiki Master / Teacher and at this stage will be are able to treat yourself, family and friends.
During the course we:
- Introduce and explain the elements that make up the complete system of Reiki including:
- Reiki Principles for developing spiritual and mental focus
- The Human Energy System including the Chakra System
- Hands-on healing, self and others
- Four symbols; three at Level 2 and one at Level 3
- Examine the history of the system of Reiki, the life of its founder, Usui Mikao and his teachings and practice.
- Give four attunements. These attunements provide a powerful clearing of the energy channels so you strengthen, cleanse and balance your energy system and prepare to be as pure a channel of Reiki energy.
- Practice Hands-on healing for performing treatments for self and others.
