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, super chillaxed. It is such an awesome practice that soon we/they wonder how on earth we/they 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 to heal.

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 bucketloads. 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?
I have been working with Reiki since 2001, and teaching others since 2012, and I have seen nothing but beautiful results. It can seriously change your life. But don’t take my word for it. Sign up to a workshop and see what it can do for you:

To gain the most from your Reiki course, you may wish to prepare yourself beforehand. Receiving Reiki Attunements is a special spiritual experience and balancing your energies prior to the course will help to enhance the process for you.

All Reiki courses are certificated. Reiki Manuals and class material are included in the course fee. Small informal classes are held regularly in Holmeswood, Ormskirk and Grange over Sands.

With increasing numbers of people asking for individual training, nowadays my level 1 and 2 courses are mostly planned on request, with dates and times arranged to suit the student(s). Please get in touch by phone or email if you are interested and we will arrange something which is mutually convenient. Weekdays are possible as well as weekends. Please allow at least three weeks ahead when requesting a date, preferably longer, to allow preparation time for both teacher and student.

It is advisable to experience at least one Reiki treatment yourself in the weeks leading up to your attunement. This does not have to be with me. However, booking a treatment with me is a good way to meet me, to experience what you will be learning to do, and to be sure that you are happy with me as a teacher.

To book a place or for further information on any of the above courses please call 07709859339.

Our next Reiki 1 training dates are  Tuesday 27th April 2021 and Sunday 9th May 2021.

If you feel ready to begin your Reiki journey and either of these dates is suitable, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch to book your training course today, places fill up quickly.

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.

Reiki First Degree – Shoden

Reiki for Family and Friends

An Attunement to Reiki encourages you to live your life on a higher level leaving negativity behind. It works on all levels, spiritual, emotional and physical.

You will learn about Reiki history, principles, western and Japanese Reiki techniques. You will also have a practical introduction to the energy field body: Chakras and Aura and you will be able to sense the differences between each chakra and balance them.

The attunement dramatically raises the human frequency and enable you to access specific frequencies of energy. You will sense and recognise the integral purpose of Reiki that will enhance the ability to look at life in a more lovely and peaceful way.

This course is suitable for people who are interested in Reiki as a personal and spiritual developmental or healing pathway. It is also the first level of training for those who intend to work professionally with Reiki and is part of a Practitioner training which conforms to the Reiki National Occupational Standards.
First Degree Reiki Training is about connecting to the Energy, developing your sensitivity to the flow of energy, beginning your own healing and expanding your mindset to allow you to channel the energy effectively.

This level of training will give you:
• The confidence and knowledge of basic technique to treat yourself, friends and family.
• You will be personally attuned to the Reiki energy and gain experience in channelling it.
• Supervised practice of treating other people with Reiki.
• A good understanding of the history of Reiki and your place in the Reiki Lineage.
• The philosophical background of the therapy.
• Basic understanding of body structure.
• Introduction to the Energy System of the body.
• Understanding of the links between Body and Mind and why we fall ill.

You are also encouraged to keep a journal of your self- treatment progress and a log of your treatments of other people. This is not a formal Case Study requirement but an aid to your Reiki journey. It is intended to help you to highlight areas of practice you are not clear on and to act as a basis for discussion in subsequent training

Our courses are relaxed and informal and training can be one to one or in a small group (maximum of 4) so that each person can receive as much attention and support as they need. Our students are fully supported before, during and after training. Reiki 1 courses take place over one full day 10.30 til 4.30pm approx. Refreshments and light lunches are provided.

The course is varied and interactive – expect to get involved! You will learn a little about the history of Reiki and about Dr Usui’s journey. You will receive a basic introduction to the human energy system and the principles of energy medicine. You will receive healing attunements which empower you as a Reiki healer and will learn the traditional healing hand positions.

By the end of the course, you will have carried out your first full Reiki treatment and will have had opportunities to meditate and take part in various exercises which will help you develop your healing ability. A Reiki 1 manual will be provided. On successful completion of the course you will be presented with your certificate and a copy of our lineage.

Our next Reiki 1 training course dates are on Tuesday 27th April, Tuesday 4th May and  Sunday May 9th 2021. These are flexible and can be changed to suit your needs. Please get in touch for further details.

Love and Light.

Reiki Second Degree (Practitioner Course) – Okuden

Reiki Practitioner Course

Reiki 2 courses develop your healing skills to practitioner level. It is recommended to allow at least six months after completing Reiki 1 before completing Reiki 2. This is to allow you to develop your relationship with Reiki as well as allow your body to assimilate the energetic changes that Reiki 1 brings.

After this course, you will be able to practice Reiki professionally, get insurance and join a Reiki Association. It will further enhance your ability to work with Reiki.  Training dates can be flexible to suit you, please contact Nicola to discuss.

Second Degree Reiki develops your intuition and enables a greater quantity of Reiki to flow through you, therefore increasing your healing power whether directed towards yourself or others. You will learn three sacred symbols along with their names and mantras. You will also master distance healing, which enables you effectively to ‘send’ Reiki to anyone, anywhere and at any time. Reiki Second Degree is recommended for people considering becoming a Reiki practitioner.

Taught in small groups of between 2 -4 people. Reiki 2 courses take place over two days. Day one 10.00 til 4.30 pm. Light lunch and refreshments are provided. Day two is shorter (a morning or afternoon) and will be arranged at a mutually convenient time once case studies have been completed. This course is certified upon successful completion of case studies. A comprehensive manual is provided, a copy of our lineage  and your certificate.

Reiki Master Practitioner

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 and that you feel that you can learn from them as they will become an important figure in your life. 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.

I teach Reiki Master Practitioner courses in very small groups – usually two or three people. The courses last four days and dates are negotiated with all participants.

Teaching starts at 10.30am and finishes at 4.30pm. Refreshments and light lunches will be provided.

The course is a mixture of meditation, Reiki exercises, discussion, exploration of your personal spirituality and practice alongside two attunements,you will  learn further symbols and explore powerful new healing techniques. The course is certified and a manual is provided.
