Reiki Healing Course Level 1 with Marcia

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. This is a spiritual healing art for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing and self-improvement. It is a simple, natural and safe method that is administered by “laying on hands” and feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. It is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. This technique treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being.  While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion, it has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki.

This is an amazingly simple technique to learn; yet, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. The level 1 is the start of a beautiful relationship; a relationship that will only ever guide you, support you and continue to invite you to go deeper. It is a wonderful opportunity to get to know yourself on a new level and become aware of how your body is continually speaking to you. Experience the true magic of receiving a Reiki level 1  (initiation / attunement / blessing). Receiving a Reiki initiation is a gift as it invites you to come into harmony with yourself as it unlocks your innate power to heal yourself. The word attunement means being or bringing into harmony, feeling of being at ‘one’ and initiation means ‘an occasion when someone is first introduced to an activity or skill’. So the Reiki attunement / initiation is an opportunity for us to begin afresh. This course will allow you to do self-reiki, which is one of the most important activities that you can do and that will help to remember your spirit. This course includes:

  • The Reiki Principles
  • The Essence of Reiki

  • Self Healing and Hands Positions
