Learn Reiki as it was taught in Japan before 
it came to the west and was adapted to fit western culture.

In this transformational course, you will experience its beautiful simplicity and its focus on personal and spiritual healing and growth available through the lost wisdom available in the Lineage of Usui Reiki Ryoho.

The word "Shoden" means "beginning teachings", and the Japanese Style Reiki Shoden Course explores the foundations of Reiki as an energy, as a daily spiritual practice for self-development, and as a therapeutic system for healing yourself and others.

The System of Reiki is comprised of five major elements, and each will receive considerable focus throughout the complete three-level training series:

  • The Five Reiki Precepts as the spiritual medicine for all disease

  • Traditional Meditation & Breathwork Techniques

  • Hands-On Healing Practice for working on Self and Others

  • Symbols and Mantras (presented in levels 2 & 3 of training)

  • The 4 traditional Reiju (Spiritual attunement/blessing to clear meridians)

In this two-day or four-evening, 14 CE Hour program, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of the essence of this system that effectively weaves lecture, demonstration, group discussion, and hands-on practice into a magical experience you won’t soon forget. You will learn...

  • The most accurate history of Reiki and the teachings of Usui Mikao.

  • Breathwork & meditation exercises meticulously researched and accurate to what Usui actually taught.

  • Techniques to connect with your original energy (known as the "hara" in Japanese).

  • Methods of Self-healing and self-development as a journey toward spiritual growth.

  • Techniques for practicing energy healing for others will be learned and practiced.

  • How to develop a clearer awareness of spiritual connectedness for yourself, your family and friends.

  • How to use Reiki to connect with plants, food, animals, crystals, etc... integrating it into every day.

Students receive a detailed 80-page manual, on-going teacher support, and an attractive certificate of completion. You will feel more more confident, more relaxed, and stronger inside. And, you will further develop your compassionate and loving nature. You will feel much more connected spiritually and you will be a part of an internationally respected organization.
