Our Reiki Training Courses

Stepping on to the Reiki path, you will commence a remarkable journey of self-discovery, development, healing and love. Reiki can be practiced by anyone and can be used purely for your own self-development if you so wish, although many who receive attunements are guided to use it to help others. Each new level of Reiki allows you to develop yourself further, leading you to fulfil your true potential, and enabling you to be a healing light for others. If you practice other therapies, either allopathic or alternative, it can enhance the treatments you already offer. Reiki is not affiliated with any religious dogma or based on any belief, faith or suggestion. It is based on the direct experience of those who practice it.

10 Reasons to Learn Reiki

1. It’s simple to learn
There are no pre-requisites, we don’t have to ‘be’ anyone in particular or ‘do’ anything in particular. It’s a healing technique that can be learned by absolutely anyone, anywhere, in a short amount of time. In fact, the only real requirement is to be open, willing to learn and then to put it into practice. Once we have become attuned to Reiki the rest is up to us—to really understand Reiki we need to practice, practice, practice, then have a cup of tea and a biscuit and practice some more.

2. It’s a gift to ourselves
Yes, Reiki is a healing therapy that can be used on anyone or anything, but it is primarily a tool for ourselves. There is no stipulation that we need ever use it for anything other than our own self-healing and self-development. We can use it as little or as much as we like ( the more we use it the more we will benefit!) Reiki isn’t only for those who wish to become therapists or practitioners, it always, always begins as a tool for us. The fact that Reiki students end up being practitioners/teachers is because they love it so much that they want to share it. But this isn’t a requirement.

3. It can help in pretty much any situation
When we sign up to a Reiki workshop, we are learning a way to channel high-vibrational healing energy through our hands; for us, our loved ones, our cat, our environment, even for Uncle Bob’s long lost pet sheep Ira. It can help us with sending healing to people, places, situations, and relationships etc. etc. The list is endless. No, seriously, it’s endless.

4. Did I mention it was easy to learn?

5. Empowerment
After we learn how to channel Reiki, it can really help us to feel a lot more empowered in our lives: we now have a fabulous tool to help us feel more in control and able to help ourselves/others. Have a headache? Place your hands on your head and channel Reiki to ease it. Feel helpless at the Syrian refugee crisis? Use Reiki healing techniques to send distant healing to those suffering. Got a job interview coming up? Send healing energy in advance to help it go well. There are no limits on how it can be used in a positive way.

6. Re connection
Having Reiki in our lives brings us back to ourselves, helps us get in touch with our true selves, helps us be the best that we can be: it isn’t just a system of healing, it is a system of being that can only serve for our greater good. It can’t help but improve our life and bring us greater happiness and well being. (Seriously? Where’s the downside?!)

7. I might have mentioned, but it’s really easy to learn 

8. Love, peace and relaxation
When we channel Reiki, we feel super relaxed, super chilled and it brings peace to our body, mind and spirit. If we channel it for someone else they also feel super relaxed. It is such an awesome practice that soon we wonder how on earth we ever got along without it. Many people are amazed by just how deeply relaxing it is, and as stress and anxiety is at the root of so many health issues, it’s a superb way to start your healing journey.

9. ‘Be the change you wish to see’
Much as we would like to change an awful lot about the world, we actually need to start with ourselves. If we want more peace in the world, we need to find peace within ourselves first. If we want to see more love in the world, we need to start with loving ourselves. Reiki can help us do this in bucket loads. The more we become a reflection of peace and love within ourselves, the more that others around us pick it up and are positively influenced, creating greater change. It Starts With YOU!!

10. It’s dead easy to learn. I might have said?

Inviting Reiki into your life

Reiki people learn to focus healing energy in order to heal the body, mind, emotions, and spirit so that they can bring peace and contentment into their lives and the lives of others.

Reiki training is divided into three levels. Reiki 1 connects you to the source of Reiki energy as well as teaching you the traditional hand positions for self-treatments and the treatments of others. Reiki 2 deepens this connection as well as teaching you key sacred symbols which are used to strengthen your abilities to heal. The third level is Reiki Mastery. Some people learn to become Reiki Master Practitioners and others choose to become Reiki Master Teachers. Deciding to become a Reiki Master is a spiritual commitment which affects every aspect of your life.

Whichever level you decide is the right one for you, the Reiki pathway is an exciting one which is often life changing. I consider it a great honour to have the opportunity to share part of your journey with you.

1-1 Reiki Master Energy Healing Course

Get ready to ‘become’ Reiki!!   Known as the Mystery Teachings, this Reiki Master Course is a personal discovery of your unique gifts as we explore the magical spiritual realms of energy healing.

The decision to complete a Reiki Master course is an important one as it is a commitment to a more actively spiritual way of life. It is best to build a solid relationship with your Reiki Master Teacher before choosing to take this course with them. You want to ensure that they are the right teacher for you. For many people, this is a natural progression which results from completing Reiki 1 and 2 with the same Reiki Master Teacher. However, this is not always the case and I am always happy to meet aspiring Reiki Masters – I suggest that you book a treatment with me or attend one of our Reiki shares.

This Reiki Master training is for the seasoned energy worker who is ready to take a deep dive into the mystery teachings. Whether you seek to be a Reiki teacher yourself, or simply want to deepen your own spiritual practice, Healing Hand’s Reiki Master training will gently and mindfully take you on a journey inward to learn the secrets of the universe.
