Designed for beginners, Reiki I is an introduction to Usui Shiki Ryoho – The Usui System of Natural Healing. In this class, you will develop your natural intuitive powers, learn to feel a client’s energy and understand the messages you receive, and become attuned to the first level of Reiki energy…

After training, Reiki energy flows through the body to the hands of the Reiki practitioner and into the cells of the person being treated. The energy is used to normalize body functions. It helps to reestablish balance and harmony on the physical, emotional, and spiritual planes so that the natural function is restored. Reiki differs from other healing methods in that a specific initiation process is used to prepare students for the flow of healing energy. This protects them from either transmitting or absorbing any negative energetic patterns.

Reiki I is a 16-hour class taught over two days, usually on a Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm, with a lunch break around 1 pm both days. The class is divided into four sections, each about 3.5 hours. In each section of the class, students will receive an initiation from the instructor, increasing their access to the Reiki energy and boosting their power level. By the fourth and final attunement, the student will have permanent, life-long access to Reiki, as well as all the knowledge and skills to use it successfully on themselves and others.

By the end of this First Degree Reiki Class you will be able to:

  • Apply Reiki energy to yourself and others, and sense the energy as it flows through your hands.
  • Feel the energy of the person receiving treatment and perceive areas of reduced vitality.
  • Appreciate that attitudes can create dis-ease in the mind, and how the physical body can be affected.
