Reiki is a spiritual practice and a hands-on healing art that is quick and simple to learn and even easier to use. Reiki works in a holistic, all encompassing manner, healing the person on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels, and serves as a preventative medicine that protects us from illness. Translated from Japanese, the actual word “Reiki” means “universal life-force energy”. Rediscovered in the 19th century by Dr. Mikao Usui, this age old healing method is now practiced worldwide, and is increasingly embraced by hospitals who are becoming convinced of the benefits that Reiki offers to the wellbeing of patients.
Reiki can be given anywhere and at any time, as no special equipment or state of mind is required to give or receive it. The ability to use Reiki is transferred to the student by a Reiki Master, through a process of four “initiations” or “attunements” which open the student to the energy of Reiki. After receiving the Reiki initiations the person is able to channel the Reiki energy through their hands, and give Reiki either to themselves or others, by placing their hands on particular positions on the body. Reiki energy will flow into the body to the areas of need, supporting and accelerating the body’s natural ability to heal itself, and restoring balance to one’s organism and life. Reiki never clashes with other forms of treatment, and works well with both allopathic and complementary therapies.
Reiki I class
19–20 September, 2020
During the Reiki 1 course, students receive four initiations that connect them to the energy. They learn how to treat themselves and others and get to know the history of Reiki. Immediately following the course, students are able to treat both themselves and others. People who have learned and practiced Reiki 1 and who wish to deepen their connection with this energy, and learn how to work with Reiki from distance, can continue and learn Reiki 2.
