What Is Reiki?
Reiki is a healing art in which high vibration energy is channelled for the purpose of healing physical, emotional, mental and spiritual problems. “Rei” means “universal” or “spirit” and “ki” means energy.
The origins of Reiki lie in Japan. Mikao Usui was a Japanese seeker who, through his jobs, had opportunities to travel. He was interested in exploring healing traditions from around the world, and particularly focused on discovering what it was that gave some people the ability to channel healing. Through his travels, he came to the conclusion that perhaps every person has healing abilities, which through training can be enhanced and structured.
We live in a busy world where many people are quite overwhelmed. Between the demands of family, work and the continual interruption of technology, many people feel overstimulated and not heard. Increasingly, relationships are breaking down and we are experiencing rapid rises in depression, anxiety and work-related disorders. Many people simply feel exhausted.
Reiki treatment is a modern-day sanctuary. You will be welcomed and listened to in a supportive, understanding and accepting framework of love before being invited to enjoy the healing embrace of Reiki. There is no judgement within the confines of a Reiki session and you will have the opportunity to freely explore whatever is on your heart.
The Reiki 1 course welcomes students from all levels of experience into the world of Reiki. As everyone has natural healing abilities, anyone can learn Reiki. Many students seek to integrate knowledge from Reiki into existing practices and other forms of healing.
Typically, Reiki 1 training takes place over two days. Students learn how to channel the Reiki energy, learning self healing and how to facilitate a Reiki session for someone else.
Reiki 2 training is available to all students who have completed the Reiki 1 certification in any lineage of the Reiki tradition. The course goes deeper into the core principles of energy healing, with a focus on initiation into the three Reiki symbols.
The Reiki symbols are like the buttons on an old car radio - fast ways to access specific frequencies for focused healing tasks. A symbol can be called upon by a Reiki practitioner who has received initiation into it. The symbols significantly amplify the Reiki energy and the skills of the practitioner.
The focus of the Reiki Master course is to explore how you may use Reiki to master your life. Students receive initiation in the final symbol of the Westernized Usui Reiki system and learn how to use all of the Reiki symbols together in a fluid and integrated way.
During Reiki 2, students are introduced to the three primary Reiki symbols and encouraged to develop relationships to them with practice. The symbols are considered to be the true “teachers” of Reiki. Students are, therefore, encouraged to trust the information that they channel as the symbols not only encourage development with them, but also in terms of healing energy as a whole.
Reiki Teacher training is a teaching qualification that can take your healing practice to the next level of recognition. In the Reiki teacher course, you will learn everything you need to lead groups, channel Reiki initiations and teach all the levels of the Reiki training.
You will leave the training transformed into a competent Reiki Master / Teacher.
The Reiki Teacher course is available to those who have completed Reiki 1, Reiki 2 and Reiki Master training. If you have completed the Reiki 2 training and have a working relationship with the Reiki symbols, it is also possible to take the Reiki Master and Teacher courses together. This is known as Reiki Master / Teacher training.
