Usui Reiki Ryoho

Usui Reiki Ryoho Okuden Level II Class — Okuden Reiki Training — Inner Teachings

The Okuden Reiki Class (Okuden means “inner teachings”) is for Usui Reiki Ryoho Level I practitioners who want to deepen their knowledge and connection to Mikao Usui's teachings. Learn the traditional meaning and practice of shirushi (symbols) and jumon (mantras), discover how to connect to Heaven and Earth energy or Ki (ideas that have been central to Japanese culture, religion, and philosophy since ancient times) while exploring the meaning of Oneness with the universe. The concept of Oneness is in fact central to understanding the original meaning of distant healing which so often is misperceived in the West. The Okuden Reiki course will expand and intensify your personal and spiritual connection to the essence of Reiki.

Okuden is one of the traditional Japanese Usui Reiki Ryoho Classes that aim to teach you Reiki in the traditional Japanese way as taught during Mikao Usui's lifetime. If you would prefer to learn Reiki in the Western style, please see our Usui Reiki Healing Classes.

Usui Reiki Ryoho Classes for Donations!

We do ask for a deposit and we do suggest an appropriate donation for all Usui Reiki Ryoho Classes; one that reflects the additional expertise required of the teacher and the value of the classes being taught, 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.

About the Okuden Reiki Classes

Okuden is the second of the Reiki classes that will teach you traditional Japanese Reiki, following the teachings of the Usui Reiki Ryoho branch.

In Okuden, we explore the concept of Oneness to deepen our energetic understanding of all things. Realizing that everything in the universe is composed of energy enhances our perspective of energy work. Energy is everything, therefore distance cannot exist, and it is this core concept that allows us to delve deeper into one of the more superficially puzzling aspects in the practice of Reiki — that of distant healing. In this exploration, we examine the traditional role of shirushi (symbols) and jumon (mantras) and through practice learn how these are used to connect us to Earth and Heaven energy. We relate the essence of this concept in the context of its ancient Japanese origins. We go deeper into the shirushi and jumon to uncover their many facets, which include chanting and visualization techniques, and explore their role in developing a deeper personal spiritual connection. Once we have a firm understanding of how to connect to Heaven and Earth, we proceed to expand our exploration of Oneness and of its inner meaning within the system of Reiki.

During Okuden, we nurture further spiritual growth by learning and practicing additional traditional Japanese Reiki techniques.

As we become more conscious of our connection to everything and everyone, the desire to help others may also naturally evolve further. We discuss aspects of helping others and steps that are appropriate for Okuden practitioners to consider.

In keeping with the traditional Japanese perspective of Reiki being a spiritual journey, all students of Usui Reiki Ryoho are invited to continue to build upon what they have learnt by attending the Usui Reiki Ryoho Practice Meetings which are held regularly.
