Usui Reiki

Usui Reiki First Degree Class — Reiki Level I Class

The Usui Reiki First Degree Class (or Reiki Level I Class) is for everyone. Take your first steps in this eye–opening class that will show you how to give yourself and others a Reiki treatment. Gain a thorough understanding of Reiki from a Western perspective, delving into Western influences such as the chakra system and auras, and discover how these alternative interpretations work within the traditional system of Reiki.

(“Reiki I”, “First Degree”, “Reiki Level 1” are other names sometimes used to refer to this same level of Reiki.)

The First Degree Reiki I Class is one of the Western style Usui Reiki Healing Classes that aim to teach you Reiki as it has developed in the West, and includes many non–traditional Reiki techniques. If you would prefer to learn Reiki in the traditional Japanese way, as practiced during Mikao Usui's lifetime, please see our Usui Reiki Ryoho Classes.

Usui Reiki Classes and Workshops for Voluntary Donations!

We do not charge for teaching many Western style Usui Reiki Classes and Workshops. We do show you what others typically charge for this service, but you remain free to choose the amount donated. Remember: Our aim is to make Reiki accessible to everyone and according to each person's circumstances. We gladly put our trust in you to donate an amount that is right for you, and which you feel adequately reflects the value of the teachings.

Remember too that a portion of all donations received is shared with charity.

The First Degree Reiki Classes are a vibrant fusion of established Western Reiki practices and the traditional Japanese art of Reiki. We explore how this combination of alternative practices works with your body on every level to provide you with many of the benefits of the traditional system of Reiki.

The class text is by the founder of the International Center for Reiki Training, William Lee Rand's “Reiki: The Healing Touch”, and we cover the First Degree elements taught there.

You will gain a thorough understanding of the system of Reiki from a Western perspective, learn how to give yourself and others a complete Reiki treatment, and receive the First Degree Reiki I attunement in the style practiced by Hawayo Takata. With additional practice and experience, you will be well on the way to becoming an accomplished Reiki practitioner.

As with all forms of Reiki, you are encouraged to continue to practice. Join us at the regular Reiki Workshops to deepen your understanding and benefit from the shared experiences of others.
