Usui Reiki Ryoho

Usui Reiki Ryoho Shinpiden Level III Master/Teacher Class — Shinpiden Reiki Training — Mystery Teachings

The Shinpiden Reiki Class (Shinpiden means “mystery teachings”) is for Usui Reiki Ryoho Level II practitioners who wish to become future Reiki Masters or Teachers. This is the final level of the system of Reiki, but it marks the beginning of a life–long path that will richly reward you should you continue to bring its teachings into your daily life. The emphasis of the Shinpiden class is personal development, of teaching you the final elements of the system of Reiki, and in laying the foundations from which to build should you decide that you wish to pursue the role of a teacher of the traditional Japanese system of Reiki. You will no longer view Reiki as a lifetime practice; instead life will become your practice of Reiki.

Shinpiden 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 Shinpiden Reiki Classes

Shinpiden is the third of the Reiki classes that will teach you traditional Japanese Reiki, following the teachings of the Usui Reiki Ryoho branch. It is the final class that will lay the groundwork for you to become a Master or Teacher of the system of Reiki.

In Shinpiden, we attain a strong energetic connection to the source of Reiki by uncovering further the origin of its spiritual nature and exploring the Japanese philosophies that lay at its core. We gain confidence in our practice by broadening our knowledge of Reiki. We deepen our understanding of how and why Reiki works, and we look at the variations in the system and why they came about.

It is in this context that we turn to explore the fourth shirushi (symbol) and jumon (mantra). We examine the role of this “Great Bright Light” (literal translation) within the concept of Oneness, and through our exploration and practice together, we uncover the significance of this final piece of the jigsaw, and in so doing, we reveal the totality of the beauty and simplicity of the system we know today as Reiki.

With this revelation, we begin to see the fullness with which Reiki can become integrated into your daily life, and we explore this aspect further.

We learn the practical aspects too of how to perform the reiju (attunements), and we discuss methods and techniques appropriate to teaching the system of Reiki.

At this level, Reiki is a life–long journey, but upon completion of the Shinpiden course you will have gained the necessary knowledge to continue your journey in confidence, travelling its path to wherever it may lead.

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.
