REIKI

Who can learn Reiki?

Anyone who has the desire to learn. No previous experience is required, only the willingness to allow the energy to flow through them for the best possible outcome. Practitioners of other therapies find that Reiki adds a new dimension to their previous skills.

Reiki Courses

Courses will run throughout the year. They usually run as group courses where numbers are limited to a maximum of 12 people. They are great fun and a wonderful way to meet like-minded people.

Reiki Level 1:

Many of our clients have received the benefits of Reiki from the therapists here at the Centre, and now this is an opportunity for you to explore and learn about Reiki yourself.

Reiki is an ‘Energy Therapy’ which can be learned and used to aid relaxation and support the bodies’ immune system.

This is an introductory course, which gives you a chance to explore and learn Reiki and how to give yourself Reiki whenever or wherever you need it, or to give support to your loved ones through stressful situations and the course of illness.

As it runs over 2 days it gives plenty of time for you to learn, practice and ask questions.

Runs on a Saturday 10am – 4pm
Cost £50 for clients ( Full price £100)

Saturday 9 & 16 November 2019

The ‘attunement’ for this qualification is a powerful one and will enhance your intuition. At this level you will be expected to complete ‘case studies’

Successful students will receive a Reiki 2 Certificate and also a copy of their ‘Lineage.’

They will also be able to call themselves a Reiki Practitioner.
