Master/Teacher Course - Shinpiden

New Venue For The Next Reiki Master/Teacher Residential Retreat to be Confirmed Soon!

Please see till then details of our last retreat March 2019 for an idea of what is coming up!

For students to fully immerse themselves into the level 3 training, practice and meditation techniques, the Usui Reiki Academy Surrey offers a residential retreat at the stunning Buckland House in Devon. 

Exclusively ours for the duration of the course, Buckland House offers extensive grounds of 280 acres with its own lake for those adventurous enough to take the boat out and woodlands to get in touch with nature. A grand but homely and welcoming country manor with views reaching towards Dartmoor.

The Course

This intensive and internationally recognised Reiki Master/Teacher course aims to give students the tools to find deeper understanding and awareness through exploring advanced techniques, practice and philosophies giving a deeper insight into the System of Reiki. Students will receive their Master attunement and by the end of the course, will have learnt how to teach and attune others.

Becoming a "Master" means to master the self, through right action and thought, until with practice and dedication it is no longer a state of doing but a state of being. It is by this means that the System of Reiki gives us the tools to help us find deep inner awareness and guides us on our spiritual path. 

The retreat itself is designed to be a relaxed home from home where the only thing you need to focus on is your own development, all catering etc will be taken care of during your stay.

Whats included?

Students will receive a detailed Master manual, support and guidance, additional optional evening workshops, full vegetarian/vegan board and accommodation. At the end of the course, students will receive an internationally recognised Master/Teacher certificate and after the course students will have access to ongoing further support via email or telephone for as long as is needed, 25% off future private treatments with Amanda and opportunities to attend Reiki shares.

Students will have the option of booking different accommodations at varying prices for this fully inclusive retreat (similar to a hotel). Unfortunately most are with shared bathrooms, but there are so many at this property that the general rule is two rooms to one bathroom, so not too much queuing!

Please see the floor plans below to get a general feel for the house and the various room set ups. Alternatively please see to explore the house and grounds further.

How to Get There

Buckland House is located very much in the heart of the Devon countryside and difficult to get to via public transport. With this in mind, I am arranging car sharing.

Please be aware that my Sat Nav when typing in the post code for the property did not take me to the house. It was better to type in Buckland Fillegh which took me straight to the property.
