My Reiki First Degree courses are normally run on a monthly cycle in Kent in the South East of England. Hereâ€™s what you can expect:
Our courses benefit from small class sizes, with a maximum of 4 students on a course.
You will receive the Reiki First Degree Manual â€“ â€œShodenâ€ and accompanying CD as part of your pre-course study pack.
The home study is made even easier with the Reiki Meditation CD â€“ part of your pre-course study pack.
You will then attend a one day live course with me, Louise Heseltine, mainly doing practical energy work. My students frequently comment on what a relaxed, fun and inspiring day they have had.
You will receive your Reiki First Degree Certificate on completion of the course.
We can also offer membership of our online discussion forum for those with the same Reiki training as yourself.
Reiki First Degree, or \"Shoden\" is the course you need to do to begin your journey of discovery with Reiki. It comprises of a one day live course with Reiki Master / Teacher Louise Heseltine, which enables you to use Reiki for yourself, as well as your friends and family, and pets.
Upon receipt of payment and confirmation of your place, you will be sent your Pre Course Multi-media Study Pack through the post. This includes a 170 page \"Shoden\" instruction manual, fully illustrated, and two CDs. One accompanies the Shoden manual and provides a commentary for the main parts of the course, and the other contains Guided Reiki Meditations which you will be working with. The pre course element takes about 9 hours to complete but some people prefer to spend longer digesting the information and practicing the techniques.
Your pre course studying will focus on:
â€¢What Reiki is and where it comes from
â€¢What Reiki\'s founder taught and how we can follow the original system today
â€¢The Reiki \'Precepts\'. mindfulness and the use of empowerments
â€¢How to benefit from giving a self-treatment and carrying out daily energy exercises
â€¢How to use Reiki on other people
The LIVE COURSE is a one day course which takes you through everything you have been studying but is mainly about PUTTING IN TO PRACTICE what you have learned:
GETTING CONNECTED TO REIKI
On the day of the live course you will receive 3 special connection rituals called Reiju Empowerments. These are a simple, yet powerful way to open up the channels through which Reiki flows. They are equivalent to \'Western-style\' Reiki Attunements and enable you to use Reiki for yourself and for others around you - your friends and family.
WORKING WITH REIKI
In the morning of your course you will practice working with energy, your own and that of the other students. We will run through some Japanese energy exercises which will help balance your energy system and make you a progressively stronger and clearer channel for Reiki. This ability will stay with you for life - and it works for everyone!
Originally, Reiki was really a system for treating yourself. There are a few ways of doing this, and we will go through the original Japanese method of self-treatment as well as learning how the \'Western\' style method can be used and look at some different approaches to working on yourself with Reiki.
GIVING TREATMENTS TO OTHER PEOPLE
Reiki these days is seen as a well-accepted complementary therapy, available at spas and complementary health clinics, and we will be covering how to give treatments in detail. In the afternoon of your First Degree course we will go through how to give a treatment and learn some standard hand positions that can be used. It is good practice to work intuitively, but students find that it\'s reassuring to have a system of hand positions to get started.
Requirements before you begin?
There are no entry requirements, but there is a pre course home study element to this course which should be completed in preparation for the day of the live course, enabling you to learn at your own pace before attending.
