Usui Reiki Ryoho

Usui Reiki Ryoho Shoden Level I Class — Shoden Reiki Training — First Teachings

The Shoden Reiki Class (Shoden means “first teachings” in Japanese) is for everyone including absolute beginners or those familiar with other types of energy work, and will teach you about energy through hands–on experience and the use of traditional Japanese Reiki meditation techniques. Rediscover what it means to be human as we begin learning the simple yet powerful self–healing techniques of the Five Elements of the System of Reiki.

Shoden 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 Shoden Reiki Classes

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

During Shoden, we learn to understand energy through hands–on practice. There simply is no better way to learn about energy than by experiencing it first–hand. Therefore each person participates in a complete Reiki treatment, both giving and receiving. In Shoden, we also practice many traditional Japanese hands–on exercises in a group environment. It is this practical experience that leads each of us to an inner understanding of energy, and we build on this further throughout the course.

Together we will practice and learn traditional Japanese Reiki meditation techniques to develop your energetic knowledge further and support your own personal healing process.

We will explore the Five Elements of the System of Reiki which will include receiving 4 traditional Japanese reiju (meaning “energy blessing”) which are attunements performed in the traditional Japanese manner. You will experience how each reiju clears the meridians (the energy lines of the body in traditional Chinese medicine) and feel how your body adjusts with each energetic change.

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.
