Master/Teacher Course - Shinpiden

Non - Residential Reiki Master Practitioner & Master Teacher Courses in Surrey

For students to fully learn and absorb the Shinpiden (level 3) training, practice and meditation techniques, the Usui Reiki Academy Surrey is currently offering  non-residential 2 or 4 day courses in Surrey, UK.

Please note that it has been decided to adapt to the new regulations which came into force in the summer 2020 and to try to be flexible, inclusive and to allow autonomy for students to choose what is correct for them on their own personal journey, Usui Reiki Academy Surrey has developed different options for students to choose from in their training. This is with the recognition that not all students want to teach or practice on a professional basis. 

The new course structures are intended to take into consideration, with as much as is possible for us to provide practically, the diverse individuality, experiences and path that each student practitioner may wish to take, and accommodate what is right for them. 

Please see below, how these options have been adapted and the associated new details for each. Should students require, further clarification, please do get in touch.

The Course

These intensive and internationally recognised Shinpiden courses aim to provide students with the tools to find deeper understanding and expansive awareness through exploring advanced techniques, practice and philosophies which enable students to begin to gain deeper insight into Usui Reiki Ryoho, receiving their Master attunement and practices.

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 - could the term "Master" really ever be accurate? I feel that we will always be students. There is no destination as such, simply deciding the journey itself is destination enough as this is - presence. The journey (the practice and our dedication to this way of life) is only travelled via endeavouring to live by the principles throughout our lives. We may find that the destination is now, and has been with us for the entirety of our journey - we were simply unaware! 

The System of Reiki is a wonderful spiritual practice which both provides practitioners the tools to find deep inner awareness, and enables us as a wonderful consequence to guide others too!

New Options for Students!

We have a revised schedule for our shinpiden course(s) and this new structure is intended to offer flexibility for students and to be more inclusive for students individual requirements - (of course within the practical ability of Usui Reiki Academy Surrey to provide them). 

We hope this is a welcome change for both existing students, and for those embarking on their journey with us for the first time. Please see below for the various options.

What Students Said About Their Master/Teacher Course Retreat Experience

"In March 2019 I attended my masters course at Buckland House in Devon. It was a 4 day retreat in a beautiful manor in beautiful surroundings. Amanda was the perfect host and provided a manageable infantry, allowing time for questions and any personal time we needed with her and once again her knowledge and her own journey were shared unconditionally. I found the whole experience one of the best things I have ever done and the memories will stay with me forever xx Thank you my angel for showing me a way forward, for always being there and for doing what you do. Much love and blessings xxx"

"Wish I had 6 stars, an amazing week away at Buckland House learning Reiki Master level with Amanda White. She was quite brilliant, and teaches both Japanese and Western Reiki, so many teachers just teach Western Lineage. She is incredibly thorough in all her research, and knows this subject so well. I learnt so much more than I expected, and would not want anyone else to teach me, I really can`t wait to learn more. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn Reiki at any level."

"I just finished master course with Amanda. I was looking for a master that will have the time to talk explain and go trough any unclear details with me personally and in the group.And indication of her always genuinely felt approach before the master course was confirmed. She went with me before the master course trough any missing part of my knowledge { that was rushed over in previous courses by other master} to get me ready for the last stage all without any extra payment. All that wants confirmed,reinforced by the direct experience during the course.Amanda is relaxed without any ego to prevent her to go up and down to any level of her student and doesn't consider herself as some master but always maintain that is constantly learning and that include our experiences and insights and that her major message is that the course itself is only the spark that start the fire but it is our personal journey afterwards the care for it. On practical level the course was well prepared. Starting with a dreamlike location. Each person had plenty space to relaxed. Meals were prepared during the whole day. So there was no distraction from the task we all were there. Amanda took extra care of choosing the best suitable rooms for different tasks. It was such good choice that the attunement was done in separate space that will be now linked the space infinity opening experience. The whole event was even more growing afterwards just seeing the effect on Amanda herself on the others. You could see the energy also working before the course as it choose the most genuine caring people without being too sweet or spaced out or too physical but just wanting to know. Any last confusion how to use and care for Reiki energy was blown away and I am so grateful Amanda for the amazing you gave me. If you feel your current master is too businesslike cool detached without time to spend with you then Amanda is your choice."
