My Reiki Level 1 training course lasts for a minimum of 15-16 hours, which is equivalent to more than two day’s training. You spend approx. nine hours working through a multimedia study pack, at your leisure, and then attend for approximately 2 days face to face course with attunement.
My pre-course reading and listening will focus you on these areas:
What Reiki is and where it comes from (the History, Background and Development)
What Reiki’s founder taught and how we can follow the original system in the modern world
The Reiki ‘precepts’, mindfulness, and the use of empowerment s / attunements
How to benefit from daily energy exercises and self-treatments
How to use Reiki on other people
I will review this information briefly on the day of the course, but most of the training day concentrates on hands-on practice rather than theory.
Reiki Course Manual & audio CD for each level you achieve
Each Reiki course is accompanied by a comprehensive, professionally-printed manual that covers everything I teach on the day, and more besides, so there is no need to take notes. Note taking is so unsatisfactory: you frantically scribble, desperate not to miss what is being said and when you get home you can’t read your writing! On our courses you can relax, safe in the knowledge that everything we do is there in the manual for you to take home with you
Tune in to the Reiki energy
During the day of your course, you will go through four simple and powerful ‘connection’ rituals, called `attunements‘ open up the channels through which Reiki flows. Reiki ‘attunements’ enable you to use Reiki for your own benefit and for the benefit of the people around you – your family and friends. This ability will stay with you for life, you will never lose it, and Reiki works for everyone!
Learn to work with energy
You will start to work with your energy in different ways. You will learn to feel your own energy and you will practice feeling other people’s energy, and we will run through and practice some Japanese energy exercises that you can use every day to balance your energy system and to make you a stronger and clearer channel for Reiki
Learn how to Treat yourself using Reiki
Reiki in its original form is much more about working on your self than it is about working on other people, so you will learn approaches that you can use to work on yourself, and we will go through self-treatment ‘meditation’.
You can find out how relaxing an experience it is!
We will spend some time talking about how to give treatments to other people, and we will demonstrate some ‘standard’ hand positions. Although it is good practice to work intuitively, and that will come with time, it is reassuring to begin with to have some basic guidelines to follow! With time and practice, you should be able to leave the standard hand positions behind you and let the energy guide you (we cover this on the Reiki level 2’ – part of the course). We will also talk about balancing and energising the aura, and ‘scanning’ with your hands. You will practice these techniques on each other, and I will give you feedback on what you have done and noticed.
You will pair up with another student, give a full Reiki treatment and receive a full Reiki treatment, under my guidance and support. I will run through the basics, you will treat and be treated from head to foot, and you’ll find out what an amazing experience giving and receiving Reiki can be! When you have finished, I will review what you have felt and noticed, and what your ‘client’ has experienced!
You will then swap over, and receive a full Reiki treatment from your partner, so you can know what it feels like to be on the receiving end! Again, together we will review what you both experienced.
During the training we will also discuss
A history of my own style of Reiki and my lineage
Why there should be person to person attunement
Basic principles of Reiki systems and energy
Importance of self treatments
Different methods and techniques for giving Reiki, including any limitations
The possible effects of Reiki
