A unique opportunity to take your Reiki training in Dr Usui’s homeland.
The course will take place in Kyoto, the traditional heart of Japan, home of the famous golden temple, geisha, and other historic sights where we can walk in Sensei Usui’s footsteps. We will be staying in a traditional ryokan or Japanese inn.
In Kyoto, there will be the opportunity for sightseeing and cultural exchange. The highlight of our visit will be a day trip to Mount Kurama, the very birthplace of Reiki where Sensei Usui meditated for 21 days and received the Reiki energy. Kurama has many different frequencies and patterns of high vibration. We will hike up to the top of the sacred mountain for a meditation. On the way back down we will enjoy an outside bath at the local hot spring ‘onsen’.
The full two-day, in-depth Reiki Master Teacher and Reiki I and II courses will be spread out throughout the week. In addition, we will visit a Buddhist Temple where we will learn Zen meditation from the resident Buddhist Priest. We will learn meditative symbol writing in a calligraphy class and gain an insight into the world of a Geisha walking through Gion.
This will be an unforgettable physical and spiritual journey for anybody passionate about Reiki!

REIKI I & II
This course will take you from complete beginner to practitioner level.
In Reiki I we will look at the Reiki history, what Reiki is and how it can be used. We will look at the human aura and chakra system, and how to ground and protect yourself for energy work. You will be taught the standard hand positions for treating yourself and others. You will receive a level I attunement.
In Reiki II you will learn the Reiki II symbols, what it means to be a healer, how to use Reiki for manifestation and personal development. You will also learn techniques for becoming a more intuitive healer.
Upon completion of the course you will be fully qualified as a Reiki Practitioner.
Prerequisites: Please note that the Reiki Master course is only available to students who have completed both Reiki I and Reiki II. Students should have at least one year’s experience as Reiki healers and must provide three case studies. For more details on the preparatory work for the course, please contact us.
Initially we will look at what it means to be a Master, and we will learn some advanced techniques for working with the Reiki energy. Then you will learn how to prepare for and pass attunements and gain an understanding of what happens during this process.
The second part looks at how to teach Reiki and reviews the content of Reiki I and Reiki II to make sure that each Master has a sound knowledge of the Reiki history, principles, symbols and hand-positions. This knowledge is essential even if you do not plan to teach.
Upon completion of the course you will be fully qualified as a Reiki Master Teacher.
