Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a Japanese word representing Universal Life Energy, the energy which is all around us. Reiki is also an ancient art of healing, rediscovered in Japan over 100 years ago. What is know as Reiki - the Usui System of Natural Healing, can be defined as follows:
It is a gentle but powerful ‘hands - on’ technique, which restores the natural balance in the body. It provides deep relaxation thus evoking a sense of peace and well-being. It works on the emotions, mind and spirit as well as the physical body. It complements, but does not substitute, the healing properties of all modalities, including orthodox medical treatment, natural therapies, massage, physiotherapy etc. It can be given in conjunction with any other treatment.
The Usui System of Reiki is a natural healing art the anyone can learn. Although Reiki is a means of working with energy that we cannot see, it is not a religion, and requires no particular belief system.
Learning the Reiki System: anyone can learn the Usui System of Natural Healing. The only prerequisites are openness and the desire to learn. There are three practitioner levels and one Reiki Master Teacher level.
Shoden; “To deal with and transmit the energy.” Shoden is the first level of training. You will learn everything you need to know about Reiki for the purpose of giving treatment to yourself and others at this level.
Oku Den “Bringing in and transmitting the essence of the energy.”Oku Den is the second level of training, and is available to the First Degree practitioner who wishes to deepen his or her experience and use of Reiki in their lives.
Reiki Master Practitioner - the level preceding Reiki Master Teacher. The third level of training and available to Second Degree pratitioners who wish to practise at Master level or one who is embarking on The Reiki Master Teacher path.
Do Shu “Where a Way is Practised.” This is the Master or Teaching level, where a Master dedicates their life to the teaching and practise of Reiki. The Master lives their life through and for Reiki by following the 5 principles.
Reiki Refresher workshops are available for those already trained in Reiki.

Not all Reiki practitioner want to practise on the general public or maybe even their family or friends. This Development Day will give you the opportunity to give and receive Reiki, thus increasing your own knowledge, awareness and skills
Sometimes people lose contact with their Reiki Teacher for one reason or another and can begin to feel isolated if they do not know any other people who are attuned to Reiki. They have no one to ask questions of or discuss their experiences with. This is where Reiki Development Days are invaluable
What happens at a Reiki Development Day?
Most Reiki Development Days follow a similar format: a “meet and greet” phase, with general chat/introductions as people arrive. Although there is usually a group of people who attend most Development Days, there are often many “new faces” who may become regular attendees or disappear after one or two visits – so don’t be afraid to turn up at a Reiki Development Day on your own for the first time: you may not be the only “new face” there.
After the initial meet and greet there will be an opportunity for people to share their experiences or news about Reiki. This will be followed by a guided group meditation. The meditation will be Hatsurei ho, that is designed to energetically purify the body outside and within and strengthens the connection with Reiki energy.
Following the meditation, there is the opportunity we will split into small groups around couches and/or chairs and take it in turns to receive Reiki from as many pairs of hands as are available! If you are receiving Reiki from 4 practitioners for 15 minutes, this is thought to be equivalent to at least 1 hour of Reiki from one practitioner.
Usually two techniques are introduced and integrated into the Reiki session, such as nerve stroke or full body blood cleanse.
When everyone has taken their turn, we may finish with a Reiki Mawashi or Reiki Circle, where everyone joins hands and lets the energy flow around.
What does it cost? A fee of £55 which includes a light lunch
