The system of Reiki that I am qualified to teach is the Usui System of Natural Healing that was handed down by Dr. Mikao Usui himself in 1922 in Japan upon his return from a 21 day retreat to Mount Kurama. This system is widely practiced and acknowledged throughout the world to-day.
Reiki is not taught in the same way as other healing techniques. It is transferred to the student by the Reiki Master during an Attunement process. This process creates a special link between the student and the Reiki Source and is a powerful, spiritual experience.
There are three stages of Reiki training and it is not necessary to complete all three of them for your skills to be powerful and effective. You will know instinctively how far you need to go with your Reiki training once you commence your journey.
First Degree Reiki clears the healing channel within you and attunes you to the Reiki energy for the rest of your life. The more you use Reiki, the stronger it will become.
Second Degree Reiki teaches the three traditional Usui Symbols which help to focus the mind, increase intuition and conscious awareness and promote inner peace.
Reiki Master/Teacher Degree imparts more advanced symbols and techniques and empowers the student to train others in the Reiki modality.
For many students, the Reiki attunement is the beginning of a new way of life and also the beginning of their personal spiritual journey.
"There were three of us doing level 1. The morning was informative as well as enjoyable. Then in the afternoon, we got to put everything we had learned into practise and begin healing. All I can say is WOW! Reiki has changed my life. Thank you, Joan, for introducing me to it. You are the best teacher I have ever had and I can't wait to progress to the next level with you."
"I had done my Reiki Level 1 with Joan in January 2010. It was an amazing experience so just after a few months I decided to contact Joan again and arranged a course for Reiki Level 2. I completed my second degree in May 2010.
Joan's level 1 and level 2 courses are one day courses, but very well structured, easy to follow and very thorough. After my first and second degree courses Joan continued to support and guide me and I know if I will need any help from her in the future she will be there for me.
I would highly recommend Joan to anyone who is interested in doing a Reiki course."
