“I believe that for us to maintain a healthy body and a happy mind we must take care of the energy that makes us who we are.”

Reiki has always been in my life although I wasn’t consciously aware of it. When I was awakened to Reiki my personal and spiritual growth has been amazing. Through this wonderful energy I have developed calmness, stillness and compassion towards others. I have also found since Reiki came into my life it has made me positive at all times, the more positive thoughts we have the more positive things happen.

Reiki is wonderful to have in your life and we must pass this wonderful healing energy onto others!

What is Reiki?

Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese name consisting of 2 words Rei and Ki meaning spiritually guided life force energy (commonly known as Universal Life Energy), an energy which animates us all and is found all around us.
Reiki is a form of healing using “universal life energy” channelled through the practitioner to the recipient.
Reiki helps to harmonize body, mind and spirit for yourself or anyone you want to help.

The History of Reiki

Dr. Usui was born on August 15th (1864). His first name was Mikao and his other name is pronounced either Gyoho (or Kyoho). (It was an ancient Japanese custom for a teacher to give a new name to his student in order to break the continuity with the past and start anew; sometimes the student himself adopted a new name.)

He was born in the village of Yago in the Yamagata district of Gifu prefecture. His ancestor’s name is Tsunetane Chiba. His father’s name was Uzaemon. His mother’s family name was Kawaai.

From what is known, he was a talented and hard-working student. As an adult he travelled to several Western countries and China to study, worked arduously, but did at one point run into some bad luck. However he didn’t give up and trained himself rigorously.

One day he went to Mount Kurama on a 21-day retreat to fast and meditate. At the end of this period he suddenly felt the great Reiki energy at the top of his head, which led to the Reiki healing system. He first used Reiki on himself, then tried it on his family.

Since it worked well for various ailments, he decided to share this knowledge with the public at large. He opened a clinic in Harajuku, Aoyama, Tokyo, in April of 1921. He not only gave treatments to countless patients, some of whom had come from far and wide, but he also hosted workshops to spread his knowledge.

Reiki Level 1 – First Degree Shoden (beginners)

1½ days reiki training in north east England

Everyone can heal, however as we grow up our thoughts and emotions and busy lifestyles often stand in the way of our ability to tune in!
Through Reiki 1 you will learn the basics of Reiki; what it is, where it has come from and how it has developed over time. You will learn about the chakras and the human energy field. You will receive your attunements. You will be shown how to use the Hand Positions and then practice throughout the day, giving you the confidence to give a Reiki Treatment on family, friends and pets. The courses are taught in a relaxed and personal style, with plenty of time for questions, and to get to know the other students.

I recommend you leave a minimum of three months between levels to give yourself a better understanding of the Reiki energy. Then when you feel ready you can progress onto level 2 if you wish.

Reiki level 1 Manual, Crystal, book and their First Degree Reiki certificate.

There is on-going support and help from myself after the course.

What Do I Need To Do Before The Course?

Because we will be using subtle energies it can be useful to cleanse your body’s energies before the course by carrying out a very gentle “de-tox” for a few days, eating very healthily. If possible have very little meat, fish or processed foods or none at all, but lots of fresh fruit and vegetables – drinking plenty of water, herbal tea and restricting or cutting out alcohol, cigarettes, tea, coffee and chocolate, and perhaps doing some meditation each day. Go for a walk in nature and connect with nature.
