First Degree: Shoden

REIKI FOUNDATION: HEALING THE BODY, MIND, AND SPIRIT.

In this immersive course, you’ll develop the confidence and skills to use and apply Reiki. Applying Reiki by the touch of your hands is one of the foundational aspects in this system.

Reiki is Cosmic Life Energy. The traditional system which empowers an individual to access and use this Reiki is called: Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho.

One aspect of this system is a hands on healing practice that can be used on yourself, on others, in private practice, and in public health settings. Another aspect of this system is a Spiritual Practice, allowing our minds and our hearts to re-connect.

Practicing allows our inner conflicts to dissolve and we enter the state of Anshin Ritsumei – absolute inner peace. The system of Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho is a complete system for unifying and healing the body, mind, and spirit.

It is by practicing the system of Reiki (Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho), that we find it easier to live the Reiki Precepts:

It is by practicing the system of Reiki (Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho), that we find it easier to live the Reiki Precepts:
Just for Today, I will let go of worry.
Just for Today, I will let go of anger.
Just for Today, I will be grateful.
Just for Today, I will do my work honestly and with diligence.
Just for today, I will be kind to all things that have life.

Whether you want to practice Reiki for your own healing purposes, hope to supplement your massage or medical work, or are thinking of becoming a Reiki Master – the First Degree is the perfect place to start.

Here, you’ll find a focused, supportive environment where you’ll be introduced to core Reiki practices, learn the fascinating history of Reiki, and embark upon your own journey of healing and discovery.

Students emerge from the First Degree with a comprehensive understanding of Reiki, and the skills to move forward to the Second and Third Degree if desired. First Degree is an invaluable skill to have for your own personal growth and well-being.

Note: Those who register for the online class may also elect to receive the four traditional Takata Reiki initiations remotely if they choose for an additional fee. For those who have already received their First Degree initiations, this is optional.
After registration, you will receive a link to register for the remote initiations.
For the online classes, the information will be taught in an eight-hour period. However, the four First Degree initiations will be given over two to four days as is a tradition in this lineage. The times and dates for the remote initiations for each class will be stated on the registration page.
There will also be optional free Questions and Answers class sessions scheduled throughout the year which students may attend if they choose. This allows for students to ask questions regarding the information taught in this course.

Client testimonials

Jeanne S.

Customer

"As a Reiki Master and member of The Reiki Alliance, really enjoyed reading Robert's extensive research on Reiki development
and history…this is a product of much research and time and it is very well written…bravo!"

Marcia H.

Customer

“For a considerable part of my over 30 years as a Reiki teacher and practitioner, I avoided reading books and articles about reiki. Aware that inaccuracies appeared I do not know how to distinguish between good and unreliable information. Meeting Robert and learning about his research not only affirmed my core experience and sense of Reiki but also enriched my knowledge of its history. I feel grateful for this gift. Now this book shares this research with a wider audience.”

James B.

Customer

“This is a must read for anyone interested in the history of Reiki. The author uses his background in library science and extensive training in Reiki to research and present the history of Reiki from its earliest beginnings to its introduction in the United States. He includes detailed references to his sources. Excellent!”
