Shoden, Reiki Level I (Beginning Teachings)

Are You Ready to be Less Stressed, More Grounded, and Genuinely Happier?

Would you like to have less anger and worry and more love and compassion for yourself and others?

Are You Looking for More Profound Ways to Help Others...and Yourself?


 

I teach a classical Japanese form of Reiki called Usui Reiki Ryoho. This form has its roots in Japan and is not the same form as is normally taught in the West. With Usui Reiki Ryoho, the focus is on personal and spiritual development in addition to hands-on-healing.

Shoden, a Japanese word meaning first teaching, will introduce you to the powerful System of Reiki and help you establish a conscious connection to the energy of Reiki. You already have Reiki energy- you already are Reiki energy. This course is designed to reacquaint you with your own innate Reiki energy and to teach you meditations and techniques to continue deepening your connection that you can do at home. With this beginning course, you can begin your powerful spiritual journey of healing and awakening to your own true nature.

In this beginning course, you will learn:

  • What Reiki is
  • The history of Reiki

  • The five elements of the System of Reiki

  • Your connection to the energy of Reiki

  • Classical Japanese meditations and breathing techniques

  • Self treatment

  • Treatments with others

Benefits of this course include:

  • Learning to relax and center yourself
  • Having less anger, less worry, and less fear

  • Connecting more deeply with your true nature

  • Starting to heal yourself and others on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels

  • Becoming a part of the Reiki Community

  • Receiving on-going support from your teacher

  • Consciously utilizing the energy of Reiki to change and enhance your life and situation 

Time is reserved for lots of practice and meditation, so that by the end of the class, you have a full experience of the energy Reiki, putting you in a great position to practice what you learn at home.

At the end of this course, you will receive a Shoden Level I Reiki Certification in Usui Reiki Ryoho.

Once trained, you are invited to join the Reiki Expansion Group. We meet several times each month to deepen our connection to Reiki. This includes a 30-minute meditation or technique, attunements, a healing circle, followed by group Reiki...where everyone gets a treatment from the group. 

“By simply relaxing, being quiet, breathing and having a heartfelt intention to help another being, you create a sacred space.

In this space, all things are possible.”

Shinpiden, Reiki Level IIIA - Reiki Master Course (Mystery Teachings)

 

Are You ready to discover the Mysteries of Life?

Is it time to amplify your spiritual practice and step into the Great Bright Light space?

Would you like to experience yourself as pure love and oneness?

I teach a classical Japanese form of Reiki called Usui Reiki Ryoho. This form has its roots in Japan and is not the same form as is normally taught in the West. With Usui Reiki Ryoho, the focus is on personal and spiritual development in addition to hands-on-healing.

The third, and final, level to the system of Reiki is Shinpiden (meaning Mystery Teachings). This is the beginning of your Master's training. Here, we learn the 4th symbol in Reiki, the Great Bright Light, and most of our meditations and techniques during class will be focused on feeling our connection to the Great Bright Light that is already inside of each of us. 

This class does not include the Reiki Teacher training. This will come later, in IIIB. It is important to first develop a personal relationship with the energy of Reiki and to start to discover our relationship with ourselves and with the universe before we start teaching others. The more we "become" Reiki, the more authentically we can teach others.

This Master course will focus on:

  • The self-empowerment and personal development attained through a strong energetic connection to the energy of Reiki

  • Learning how to work with and perform a reiju (spiritual blessing)

  • Developing further your personal knowledge and experience of the concept of Oneness

  • Working with the fourth symbol and mantra and tapping into the knowing that you are the Great Bright Light

  • Classical Japanese meditations and breathing techniques

  • Self-healing

  • Treatments with others

 

This class is great for existing Master students as well as Reiki Level II students.

Time is reserved for lots of practice and meditation, so that by the end of the class, you have a rich experience of the fourth symbol of Reiki and have extensive knowledge of the System of Reiki. This puts you in a solid position to deepen your own healing and start treating others on a more profound level.

You will receive the Shinpiden attunement, manual, and a Shinpiden Reiki Master Certification.

This class does not include training or certification for a Reiki teacher. This is achieved in part IIIB.

"Behind all the doing, all the roles, you just are – pure awareness,

the light before consciousness, pure energy."

Shinpiden, Reiki IIIB (Reiki Master Teacher Course)
 

Is it time to step into the teaching role of the powerful healing art of Reiki?

Would you like to BE Reiki energy?

Are you ready to support others on their own healing  journey?

 

When we teach Reiki, we also deepen our own practice...we learn Reiki at a micro level, we learn how to stay in the Great Bright Light space during our entire class, and we realize what we need to focus on during our own personal practice.

I teach a classical Japanese form of Reiki called Usui Reiki Ryoho. This form has its roots in Japan and is not the same form as is normally taught in the West. With Usui Reiki Ryoho, the focus is on personal and spiritual development in addition to hands-on-healing.

The third, and final, level to the system of Reiki is Shinpiden (meaning Mystery Teachings). In part IIIB, we learn how to be a Reiki teacher, including how to perform the attunements, what to teach, and various teaching methods.

This Master Teacher course will focus on:

  • Learning how to perform the attunements at all levels of Reiki

  • What and how to teach all levels of Reiki

  • What it means to be a Reiki teacher

  • Each student leading the class on at least two lessons from each Level training, gaining full knowledge and experience of teaching all the levels of Reiki

  • Stepping into the Great Bright space...and teaching from this perspective

 

This class is great for new teachers as well as existing Master Teachers. I've taken this class from my teacher eleven times since 2007 and I am still going deeper with the subject matter, with the meditations and techniques, and with my personal practice!

You will receive all training manuals and a Shinpiden Reiki Master Teacher Certification.

The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.

Starting Your Own Reiki Business
 

Are you ready to start your side-job or full-time career in Reiki?

Would you like to be your own boss and run your own business?

Are you ready to support others on their own healing  journey?

 

Having your own Reiki business and seeing clients can be a very rewarding experience! Regardless on how robust you want your business, there can be some legal and other logistics to work out. How you talk with potential and existing clients, how you engage during the session, and what follow-ups you do can make or brake your business success. 

Come and learn the basics of starting and running your own small business. We'll spend the first half of the class learning about business basics.  During the second half of the class, you will learn how to do a session with a client starting with the pre-session, the session itself, and ending with the post-session. There will be time to practice a full in-person session. 

 

“Your business exists to provide you a vehicle to live out your passion and purpose in life

while delivering value to others”
