reiki I course


my space

There are three parts to this course: 2 days and a review meeting.  I hold courses in my therapy room at Yanley Court.  I prefer working in smaller groups of one to four.  (I know one isn’t really a group, but with me that’s 2!)  The next course is scheduled for: Friday 26 January 1000 – 1700 and Monday  29 January 0945 – 1615; group review meeting (2 hours) – time to be arranged with group.

Cost: £100 (tea/coffee and biscuits provided; all to bring own lunch)

What is reiki?

principlesReiki is a system of natural healing formalised by Dr Mikao Usui in Japan at the beginning of the 20th century.  Reiki is our intention to balance our own energy whilst connecting to the universal energetic system of which we are a part.  The tradition works with five agreements to encourage us to live mindfully and respectfully.  Reiki could be described as guided meditation where healing is offered without condition or promise.  Hands are placed on the body and the energy flows to where it is needed to restore balance and well-being.  Practitioners give healing to themselves, directly to a person or at a distance (Reiki II), to plants, to pets, to events.

Reiki differs from other healing traditions in that it has a meditative attunement process to focus your intention.  This is an important part of the Reiki journey and will be part of our time together.

There are different levels of Reiki (I, II and III).  Allowing time between the different levels of teaching, provides space to develop sensitivity and connection to your own needs whilst working with the subtleties of the healing process.  Reiki I focuses on your own healing journey; increasing self-awareness and connection to energy.  It is not a professional practice qualification.  It provides the foundation for a personal healing practice.  If you are already a therapist, this level supports the importance of self-care when providing healing spaces for others.

Additional commitments:

Accepting support during your your healing journey is important.  Please consider coming to reiki gatherings (healing circle) and receiving reiki from a qualified practitioner or another student.  You may already see a practitioner but if not I am able to provide this space or suggest other practitioners

Reiki gathering:  Cost £10 / Concession £5 (at Yanley Court)

Receiving Reiki: I normally charge £45 for one hour but offer a reduced fee for up to 3 appointments to my reiki students: £25

This course is suitable for everyone who wants to learn more about healing and/or support their therapy practice and/or personal therapeutic journey


Reiki is a simple training to receive and will promote a deeper self-awareness to hold you during your development and healing journey.   I have spent some time sitting with restarting my Reiki teaching practice.  I had thought to make the course shorter but decided it was for the wrong reasons.  So I have stayed with a two-day course, followed by an evening to review and share our practice.

In addition, you are encouraged to attend a Reiki gathering (shared healing circle) and receive healing from a qualified practitioner or another student.

This is a non-professional level but you can give Reiki to friends and family if you feel you would like to.  Some practitioners decide Reiki I is all they need.

I will provide a workshop folder and a copy of Frank Petter’s Reiki Fire.

During the course you will spend time discussing the following ideas:

  • What is healing?
  • What is Reiki?
