Course Details

2 Day Course • Certificate Upon Completion

Shoden Reiki I is the first course in the System of Reiki. We take a maximum of 6 people each class.

In this 2-day course we focus on learning to heal yourself and others with this beautiful Japanese Energy Healing Practice. Shoden is a Japanese word that in this context means "Beginning Teachings".

This course is suitable for Adults and children over the age of 14yrs (with parental consent). People learn Reiki because they want to heal, grow, shine and love life. Reiki is known for being the "hands on healing" technique and whilst it is, that is only one aspect of a rich and wonderful healing system that always starts with self.


What you will learn:

  • How the energy works

  • Understanding of the word Reiki verses the System of Reiki

  • Overview of the history of Usui Ryoho Reiki System & System of Reiki

  • The 3 energy centres (known as diamonds) within the Japanese system and their role in your energetic development

  • Receive and give a full body treatment, learning hand positions that you can then offer healing to a friend or family member

  • How your intention is key and how to maintain the energy practice throughout your day.

  • Learning about the role of an attunement and experience 4 over the 2 day course.

  • Learn the foundation meditations that help expand your energy and purify.

What you will receive:

  • A comprehensive manual

  • Morning and afternoon nibbles

  • Tea & filtered water

  • Reiki I Shoden certificate of Initiation

  • Invitation post course to attend the MRC practice events and online groups

  • Resit the course for a discounted price

All days must be attended to receive your certificate unless a prior arrangement has been made with us. Lunch will be taken at a nearby cafe each day where you can purchase what you feel like.

Our Shoden class is uniquely limited to 6 people to enable a more personal and interactive course and also allows time for questions.

Wow! I have just completed the Reiki 1 course. It was such an incredible weekend of exploration, discovery, acceptance, learning and energy. Deb gently and expertly guided us through various meditations before teaching us how to do various forms of Reiki treatments on others, including hands on healing. She is so generous with her time, knowledge and experience and we all felt amazed at the effect we could have on one another following Deb’s teaching. I now truly believe that we all have this incredible capacity to heal ourselves and others and to facilitate the flow of spiritual energy. I can’t wait to do Reiki 2.
Thanks Deb!
