The beginning of your healing journey.

Shoden is a Japanese word that means ‘first teachings’ or ‘beginning’, and is the first level in the traditional Japanese branch of Reiki, the Usui Reiki Ryoho.

During this teaching you will learn about four of the five elements of the system of Reiki which are: The Reiki Precepts; Meditations and Techniques; Hands on Healing; Reiju and Attunements. The other element; The Symbols and Mantras is taught during Okuden – Reiki II. There are no prerequisites to this course other than an openness to learn and heal, although it is beneficial to have experienced a hands on Reiki treatment, so you have an understanding of the healing energy.

The elements of the system of Reiki are taught and practised, which may then form the basis of your self-practice. You will be taught a hands on healing method, which is used mainly for the self, but can also be used for others, including family, children, friends and pets.

The course takes place over two days with continued support during the 21 day clearing process and beyond. You will receive a comprehensive manual and audio files to support your practice.

  • Cost of the course is £175, with a £50 deposit payable at the time of booking.
