Reiki is a Japanese word meaning
Universal life energy
The Usui system of natural healing is named after its Japanese founder, Mikao Usui.
Reiki revitalises the mind, body and spirit and promotes general well being. By channelling energy into the body, through touch, it activates our natural healing abilities which in turn increase our inner strength and growth.
At the level where Reiki functions anything is possible.
Reiki is non-invasive, the recipient remains fully clothed and no special circumstances are necessary to receive a treatment. Once a person is trained into the energy, they are able to access this healing energy whenever they wish.
Many people feel more positive, energetic and generally better after a treatment. It is empowering and liberating, and being attuned into Reiki offers the individual the opportunity to take responsibility for their own well being. In a society where many people feel they have lost control over their own lives, Reiki provides a useful and effective tool for personal development.
First Degree Training
This degree consists of four attunements. The focus is the importance of using Reiki for yourself, as at some level we all need healing. Students learn the history of Reiki and how to give themselves and others a treatment. This is taught in two sessions, one week apart, as this helps maintain focus and integration of energy.
Students are encouraged to attend the Reiki exchanges as this provides a good opportunity to meet with other like-minded individuals, share experiences and develop confidence in using the energy.
Second Degree Training
One further attunement is received to increase the flow of Reiki energy. The student will be taught three of the Reiki symbols and their meanings, also special techniques for using the symbols for 'distant healing', sending healing to individuals, past and future events, personal and global situations. They are a powerful tool for enabling you to deal with mental and emotional difficulties, and for furthering personal development. This is usually taught over three sessions, each one week apart.
Second degree is aimed at the individual who wants to explore the potential for personal growth through energy work.
