Course Overview

This course is the first level of Reiki and the attunement process. At the end of this course, you will be able to treat yourself with Reiki and friends and family.

Reiki is a Japanese word meaning universal life force or energy. It is a form of hands on healing that originated in Japan in the early 20th century by a man called Mikao Usui.

Usui devoted his time to healing others and teaching his discoveries and this teaching became known as the Usui Shiki Ryoho or the Usui system of Natural Healing.

In 1923 there was a devastating earthquake on the island in which over 140,000 people were killed and many more were badly injured and made homeless. Usui devoted much of the rest of his life to assist in healing the victims.

He died prematurely but his students passed on his teachings in particular an American Japanese woman named Mrs Takata. She brought Reiki as we know it to the west and it spread widely after the 1970s.

During this course, you will learn:

  • The history of Reiki.
  • How Reiki works.
  • The chakra system.
  • How to treat yourself
  • How to maintain a self-healing journal.
  • Body scanning.
  • Grounding
  • Professional codes and ethics.

Reiki level 1 is predominantly for you to use to heal yourself and connect with the Reiki energy. You may also practise on friends and family.
You will be required to keep a self- healing journal for at least 3 months before moving on to the Usui Reiki Level 2 course.
