1st Degree Shoden

(beginner or first teachings)

Original Japanese Reiki

Usui Reiki Ryoho

The Usui System of Natural Healing

Each Autumn/early Winter we offer our Level 1/1st Degree Shoden Courses.  Due to the diary being planned well ahead with regular support groups and 2nd and 3rd degree courses, we find this time of year works best for our Level 1 Courses.


All our courses may be taken either inhouse or online (Zoom) depending on current government restrictions, and this is because Reiki energy see's no bounds, in-fact, it is often said, that if anything, Reiki is stronger distantly, 'remotely', as it bypasses the teacher!  We know that we can distance heal, something that may sound incredible to those not practiced in Reiki, but believe me distance healing certainly works, and is a very powerful healing tool!  So, if we can distance heal, then why would we not be able to do distance, 'remote', empowerments?  Well we can!  Ask any students training alongside me for further confirmation of this.

This course is ideal for those who wish to begin their self-healing and spiritual development journey with Reiki.  At 1st degree you start to build a spiritual practice into your life, with daily energy meditations and self-healing.  The practice supports good health and happiness and can be taken as a beginner course, for those new to Reiki or seen as an advanced course for those that have previously taken a Western Reiki Level 1, 2 or 3 course, and feel they are now ready to develop themselves more spiritually and heal themselves on a deeper level.
