Reiki Level 1 Workshop

Reiki First Degree Workshop and Attunement. This course is an introduction to Reiki.

What is a Reiki 1st Degree Course?

Reiki (pronounced Raykey) is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Force Energy that is guided for the purpose of spiritual growth and healing. 
Reiki is a superb method for your personal development and increased ability to heal both yourself and others. Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive, hands on (or off) therapy that is deeply relaxing. It therefore may help both body and mind whilst restoring balance and harmony to life.

Additional Information

Everyone who wishes to receive a Reiki Attunement completes Reiki One (1st degree) initially. An Attunement is passed on by a Reiki Master. The Attunement process enables the recipient to permanently open and connect to the Universal Reiki Energies on mental, physical, emotional and psychic levels. It also clears and balances many important energy channels within the body.  Once you have completed your 1st Degree it is advisable to leave a suitable period of time before doing your 2nd degree. A minimum of three months is often suggested before you undertake the second level of Reiki (2nd degree). Each person is unique and should make their own decisions on what is right for them.
Some students will only wish to complete their 1st degree whilst others may progress to 2nd degree. Each person will find their own level.
Available options are:                            
  • Reiki 1st degree
  • Reiki 2nd degree
  • Reiki Master
  • Reiki Master Teacher

Progression Opportunities

Reiki Two (optional) is a further two day workshop that gives participants the opportunity to have the 2nd Degree Attunement plus learn more in depth information about Reiki. This is a much more advanced workshop that assists both self and others.
The Reiki 2nd Degree Course involves:-
  • Reiki 2 symbols
  • Working with animals and plants
  • Further Aura Energy and Chakra Information
  • Preparation for Reiki 2nd Degree Attunement
  • Reiki Guides and Meditation
  • Distance Healing
Reiki Master/Reiki Master Teacher. This level is for those who have completed both their 1st and 2nd Degrees and wish to become a Reiki Master.

Previous Students Comments

''After coming to a crossroads in my life I felt drawn to Reiki and decided to do the Reiki 1st Degree course. I can wholeheartedly say it was great! A clear, concise and beautifully presented course. By the end of the second day I felt motivated and eager to start on my own Reiki journey. I will be back shortly for the 2nd degree!''
