Western Reiki is a simple but powerful energy healing modality. This Reiki Level One Course will allow you to use Reiki on yourself, family, friends, pets or even plants. It will help you to live your life in a more balanced and harmonious way.

The course is based on the western style teachings of Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki. These teachings were passed from Dr Hayashi (a student of Mikao Usui’s ) to Mrs Takata. Mrs Takata adapted the teachings to better suit Western students.

Level One – or First Degree – is a one day course and is often just the starting point of peoples Reiki journey. The majority of the day is focused on the practical aspect of working with Reiki and learning how to use it as an external practice for healing yourself and others . You will receive and give Reiki treatments, along with many other hands on exercises. It will teach you simple hand positions that you can use for balancing, healing and harmonising the mind, body and spirit. You will learn about Reiki as an energy, and gain confidence in using Reiki. The course can help with spiritual awareness and personal growth. It will help you to reconnect with the unlimited source of Reiki and teach you about the Western energy system of chakras and the human energy field.
