This Level I foundation course, known as Shoden, meaning ‘first teachings’ or ‘beginner teachings’ in Japanese, has a short Eastern lineage and introduces you to Japanese Reiki meditation techniques and practice.
You will also be introduced to the five elements of the system of Reiki, philosophical precepts, breathing techniques and meditation techniques, hands-on healing and performing treatments for the self, friends and family.

Benefits Of The System Of Reiki
Reiki healing can take place on a physical, mental, emotional or spiritual level. Each of these levels will be affected by working energetically with Reiki. A change in one level will affect the functioning of another level. In this sense it can be understood how the system of Reiki is holistic. Sometimes the changes may be subtle and yet major shifts are also known to occur.
Physically the body will respond where there is pain or illness. Mentally and emotionally, calm and quiet can be restored to our lives leaving us feeling balanced. Once we feel calm our sense of spiritual connection and purpose in life is returned. From this energized place we begin to feel physically strong and the cycle continues.
