Reiki Levels and Workshops

 

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of self-improvement and healing that everyone can use. The recommended way of being introduced to Reiki is by learning in person from a teacher that has the proper level of training and lineage. The ability to channel and use Reiki in fact is passed on to the student through an attunement process, which basically is a transfer of energy between the teacher and the students, hence the importance of choosing a credible and reliable teacher.  

Another thing to consider is that Reiki has evolved a lot through time, and some of the techniques that are taught today, even though they remain under the name Reiki, have been simplified, stripped of some of the original components or sometimes altered in order to create slightly different versions of Reiki.

The system of Reiki (traditional Japanese Reiki Usui Ryoho – at today the closest to the original teachings of the founder Mikao Usui) is founded on five main elements (or components) that work together to produce a complete spiritual teaching that is accessible to everyone. Each element supports the other and complements and strengthens the gaps in the Reiki practitioner. The five elements (or building blocks) of the Reiki system are:

  • Traditional Meditations/Techniques
  • Reju and Attunements
  • Hands-On Healing
  • Reiki Precepts
  • Reiki Symbols and Mantras

 

The elements of the Reiki system give us the tools to live a happy and balanced life:
Reiki Meditations and Techniques to reconnect to our inner power;
Hands-On-Healing for our wellbeing;
Symbols (shirushi) and mantras (jumon) to strengthen and balance us;
Reiki Precepts as spiritual guidelines to embody;
Reiju and attunements for energetic blessing.

 

These elements are the foundation of the traditional Japanese practice of Reiki, which original purpose was to promote peace and harmony within the self, hence offering a path for personal growth and self-healing.

The system currently used to teach Reiki is divided in levels and each level focus on different components and techniques to build up, complement and strengthen the practitioner’s energetic connection.
