Reiki 1 - Beginners Teachings - Shoden

This 2-day course teaches the foundation of Reiki which is a good introduction to the history, philosophy, theory and practical uses of the method. It includes practical exercises and meditations which by the end of the course, students will feel the flow of Reiki and be confident in giving treatments to family, friends, pets and all manner of other things. Students will be able to use it for self healing of body, mind and spirit and for the start of personal and spiritual development. All courses comply with the Core Curriculum for Reiki.
