     EFT LEVEL 1

 Sat 5th & Sun 6th     August 2017

“Each of us has the potential of being given a gift by the divine, which results in the body and soul becoming unified. In this way (with Reiki), a great many people will experience the blessing of the divine. …First of all, our Reiki Ryoho is an original therapy, which is built upon the spiritual power of the universe. Through it, the human being will first be made healthy, and then peace of mind and joy in life will be increased.” 
(Mikao Usui, “Reiki Ryoho Hikkei, Dr Usui's Handbook”)


Everybody is able to channel Reiki. You only need to  be attuned to Reiki by an experienced Reiki Master.
Reiki courses are completely different to any other courses you may have been on. It is a really lovely and very special experience to be attuned physically by a Reiki Master and in my opinion it is the only way to be attuned!

During the workshops you will  practice on others and discover how easy it is to channel this miraculous energy called Reiki.

On the 1st degree workshop you will learn how to switch on Reiki healing energy at any time and in any place, for the rest of your life. Level Two will greatly step up your healing abilities and you will learn to do distance healing.

Being attuned to Reiki will empower you to heal yourself on all levels, and bring peace, and joy into your life. You will leave my workshops with a warm Reiki smile in your heart.

I have been practising Reiki since 2000 and teaching since 2005. I love to see ALL my Level One workshop students channel Reiki healing energy through their hands for the very first time. It is joy to behold!

During both 1st degree and 2nd degree groups are kept small with a maximum of 4 students ensuring my undivided attention. My students have commented on how comfortable they feel being in a small group and have left the workshops feeling confident in their ability to use Reiki both professionally or otherwise.

Reiki 3rd degree (Master) is a very special step to take in your life, and is usually done on a one-to-one basis although it can be done with more than one person if requested.

The real challenge for the individual is to practice evolution, to learn the lessons of the old stories so we no longer need to repeat them, and to remind ourselves that the critical mass of humanity involved with this evolution will change the world from the inside out. - Dr. Bruce Lipton
