Our support groups enable students to strengthen their Reiki practice (which increases their healing, and ability to hold a healing space), learn new techniques and practice known ones, make new friends with like-minded people, have the opportunity to give, receive and practice Reiki in a safe, warm, friendly, loving environment, both inhouse (taking every known precaution to be Covid safe) and online. It also gives students the opportunity to arrange healing exchanges with each other either for practice, to complete requirements for certification at Level 2 or 3, or to simply to share a healing exchange.
Our support groups incorporates a variety of techniques and practices we use to work with the energy, to heal ourselves and open the healing space for others.
Support All Levels Groups
We typically start with the practice of Hatsurei, incorporating Dry Bathing (kenyoku ho); sensing the 'Hara'; moving onto Joshin Kokyu ho (the cleansing breath), experiencing sitting in the space, Gassho (2 hands together) bringing mind and body together; Reciting the Reiki Precepts ... Just for Today; self healing ... we have then created a space for healing, so we move onto the Reiju blessings.
In Japan the Empowerments/Spiritual Blessings are called Reiju. This Reiju is performed by a Reiki teacher on a student and is one of 'The Five Original Elements of the System of Reiki'. Whilst the student sits upright in a chair, the teacher completes a physical and energetic ritual around the student. This can be performed both in-person and distantly, just like 'distance/remote' healing.
The teacher works with Reiju in order to communicate with individual students on an energetic level. This is completed with the intent that the student will remember his or her own connection to the Universe/The Divine. As the student draws this Ki, the benefits to the energetic clearing process will also occur. The student will begin to recognise her own 'true nature'.
After the Empowerments, we decide what energetic practices we will hold the space for, this is dependent on the students that turn up for the session. On some occasions the students will have the opportunity to complete requirements for either 2nd or 3rd degree. We often do some distance healing (all distance if via Zoom - which works incredibly well). We sometimes work in pairs or as a group. At present we are open to 2 students inhouse so that they may each have a reiki bed and seat, divided safely behind screens, where they may safely remove their masks.
Our Support All Levels group is offered once a month on a Tuesday evening.
2 Hour Session - Zoom £5 / 2 Hour Session - Inhouse £8
Shinpiden Training Group (3rd degree)
This group supports those that have trained at 3rd degree Shinpiden Reiki. Even after the course has ended we will always be in training, as this is still just the beginning! A variety of practices and meditations will be practiced enabling the students over time to build on past techniques and practice new ones. Students will also have the opportunity on a regular basis to practice Reiju Spiritual Blessings, better known as Empowerments. At 3rd degree Shinpiden, you are opening the door to all possibilities! After the course we have an extension manual, which takes students deeper into what the 4th symbol really means. We can also work with the symbols of 'Karuna Reiki' and 'Holy Fire Reiki' (Holy Fire is a separate course).
Our Shinpiden Support group is offered fortnightly on both a Thursday morning 10am to 12pm and Thursday evening 7pm to 9pm.
2 Hour Session - Zoom £5 / 2 Hour Session - Inhouse £8
Empower 45 (Our Monthly Charity Event)
Our founder Usui, was known for giving regular Reiju blessings to all his students, each time they met. He would do it differently to how we do it today, as he would be on a higher level of consciousness than most Reiki teachers today. So Usui would be able to simply sit and hold an energetic healing space, a spiritual blessing, in which his students would be able to sit, and heal, and go inward, discovering their own true nature, their authentic selves, and recognize their connection of Oneness with everything and everyone. We all came from the Source and we will all return back to the Source.
We are honoured and privileged to have been trained in a similar technique to our founder Usui, where we do what's called an physical Reiju blessing, where we also hold space for our students to take from it what they need. These are powerful healing opportunities in many ways, and have been found to be very powerful when done distantly, as it is believed that the teacher is more likely to be able to get her own head, energy out of the way during this process, when completed distantly.
45 minute sessions, give our students, or any other Reiki Practitioners who wish to join us, the opportunity to sit in the space of Hatsurei and Empowerment in a group setting, which can be a very powerful healing experience. This space is currently available online only and via the Zoom platform for level 1 and 2 students; and inhouse for level 3 students, so that Shinpiden students may deepen their practice.
Our Empower 45 is offered once a month on a Tuesday evening at either 6.45pm to 7.30pm and repeated at 7.45pm to 8.30pm.
Shinpiden students may join inhouse (max of 3) for Reiju practice - £6 for the double session.
