Reiki Support Groups

Empowerment/Share Groups
Healing Space Group
2nd Degree Okuden Development Groups
3rd Degree Shinpiden Support Groups
Pure Share Groups
Inner Peace Meditation Workshops

The support groups enable students to strengthen their Reiki practice, learn new techniques, make new friends and have the opportunity to practice Reiki both in a safe, warm, friendly environment and to arrange healing exchanges with each other.

Sensitivity, Diagnosis and Confidentiality

During any of our Reiki support groups healing always has the potential to take place.  This healing can bring up a lot of hidden emotions, so it's important to always be sensitive to each other.  Remember to keep everything that happens within the group as confidential as you would expect with a doctor/client relationship.  None of us are trained Doctors, therefore never try to diagnose each other. 

Creating the Atmosphere

During our sessions, it is important to have a relaxed, quiet, calm atmosphere before, during and after sessions, as we are creating a space for healing to take place, one that continues way after the group has finished.  If possible, during our sessions, do not discuss the day’s events that have been on the news or any discussions that have any negative connotations.  By doing this, we are keeping the energy as pure as possible, which will aid everyone in the group to a deeper level of healing. 

A Pure Share Group (all levels)

A Reiki share consists of many healing hands on one person at a time. One person lays on a table while the participating Practitioners gather around that person, laying their hands upon him/her facilitating a large flow of Reiki energies.  The time on the table depends on the number in the group.  Everyone gets a turn on the table. Everyone gives and receives healing.  Group energies are often very strong and can be more penetrating than individual sessions. This type of Reiki treatment is a wonderful and often profound experience!

 

Okuden Development Group (2nd degree)

This class gives students the opportunity to practice working with the first 3 symbols of the system of Reiki, from drawing them correctly to sitting in the energy of each symbol.  Distance healing and harmony healing techniques are often practiced and students have the opportunity to arrange to swap healing sessions with each other.  These sessions can then be used to complete some of the student's requirements for their Okuden Certificate if they have not already completed them.

 

On occasions we also 'chant' using the symbols 'mantra', which is the name associated with each of the symbols. Chanting is in fact a very powerful way to connect with the energy, it changes it's vibration.  It is a wonderful experience to see the faces of students when they first feel the difference in the energy when using this technique.  Whilst most students initially shy away from chanting, once experienced, they usually cant wait to come back and try it again!  

Shinpiden Support Group (3rd degree}

This group supports those that have trained at 3rd degree Shinpiden Reiki.  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 and Western Attunements.

Inner Peace Meditation Workshops (all levels)

This group will further support the meditations learned, allowing time to experience them once again. To really benefit from the meditations, you would need to practice them in your own time between groups, and attend the majority of the sessions, ideally all 6.

The Session will consist of:
1. Hatsurei practice
2. Empowerment
3. Meditation

Empowerment/Reiju with a Share Group  (all levels)

In Japan the Empowerments/Spiritual Blessings are actually 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. 

 

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 connection to the Universe.  As the student draws this Ki, the benefits to the energetic clearing process will also  occur.

 

After this students have the opportunity to both give and receive Reiki in a Share Group.  This can be either on a therapy bed or for larger groups in a healing circle.

 

Our Healing Space groups enable students from other lineages to join us - to find out more simply get in touch.
