Bringing Reiki, life and wellbeing to Galashiels and the rest of the Scottish Borders

Reiki Level One – Shoden

Mikao Usui’s motivation in creating the system of Reiki was to develop a path towards spiritual development, or the state of Satori.  Satori is a state of calmness and perfect harmony, regardless of what is happening around us. This is also the main aim of level One of Gendai Reiki.

During the Level One training, which is called Shoden, you will learn the healing techniques created by Usui Sensei.  These techniques are applicable in self treatment and the treatment of others, and they help attain equilibrium on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.  The techniques practiced are those created by Mikao Usui, the founder of Reiki.

Learning Reiki in this authentic system is relaxing and supportive; the teaching is mainly through teaching stories and demonstration. By the end of the class you will have learned:

The integration of First Degree practice into your life begins a daily practice that will benefit all aspects of your life, and bring healing.

The basis of the practice is self treatment. Treatment of others, usually starting with family and friends, is possible after the first day of the first class.

Shoden, the first level, is taught in three sessions, each of about four hours.  Level One is complete in itself and many people choose to remain at this level.  There is no pressure to progress beyond Level One.
