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 presence of Reiki easily and quickly.

All courses comply with the Core Curriculum for Reiki and NOS. 

Courses taught in a relaxed style and environment, in groups of no more than 10 to give plenty of support and with time for questions and discussion. 

Courses and workshops will take place at St Martins Community Hall, East Horsley, Surrey. 

Everyone senses Reiki and receives intuitive information differently, so I feel its important to endeavour to help students to find and grow their personal strengths and heighten awareness in areas which are unique to each individual.
