Learn Reiki 1 in Chiang Mai

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.  Reiki 1 workshops take place from the clinic in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

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 Initiations

The ability to channel Reiki healing energy is passed from master to student during the Reiki initiations.  An initiation (or Reiki attunement as it is otherwise known) is an energetic ritual that has been passed down the lineage of Reiki masters. During a Reiki initiation, the student sits in meditation for around 20 minutes as the Reiki master channels the initiation. Reiki attunements can be powerful experiences. Many students report seeing clear white light. Experiencing shifts in the emotional and energetic bodies are common as well. Reiki 1 students receive four initiations throughout the duration of the course.

Course content


Learn how to channel Reiki for yourself whenever you choose.  Among other things, self healing practice is an effective technique for stress relief and pain management.  This practice enables the student to deepen in relationship to the Reiki energy after completion of the course.

Facilitating a healing session

Learn everything you need to facilitate a healing session for a client.  Students graduate from Reiki 1 fully equipped to offer paid Reiki sessions and to integrate knowledge from Reiki into existing practices as well.  Reiki can be integrated with massage, yoga teaching, therapy and many other fields.

Chakra balancing

The 7 chakras are the energetic centres of the body.  The chakras might be thought of as central energy points that correspond to patterns on the mental, emotional and physical levels.  The intention to create balance is the foundation of Reiki practice. Balancing the chakras creates harmony and well being.

Reiki and meditation

Reiki is a useful tool for many students’ meditation and the self healing practice forms a meditation in it’s own right.
