Reiki Level One

Reiki Level One Course

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki is administered by ‘laying on hands’, it is a very simple yet powerful technique that can easily be learned by anyone. It can be used on others or to treat ourselves.

Whilst Reiki is spiritual in nature in that it provides love and compassion, it is not a religion. Reiki does not conflict with religious beliefs, in fact, many people from various religious backgrounds have practised Reiki and find that it enhances their religious experience.

This is a two day course from 10:00 to 18:00 each day. The focus is on how to treat yourself and others (including animals). This training is in line with the Core Curriculum and National Occupational Standards proposed for Reiki (14 hours initial training). This course is suitable for people who are interested in Reiki for personal and spiritual development.

First Degree Reiki Training is about connecting to the energy. It will attune you to the flow of Reiki, enabling you to use it for self-healing and for treating others, such as friends and family. You will develop your sensitivity to the flow of energy, beginning your own healing and spiritual journey.

The main content of the course is:

  • What is Reiki and how it works
  • The History of Usui Reiki and its principles
  • The Attunement and initiation into Reiki Healing
  • An introduction to meditation and guided visualisation
  • Hand position and techniques for self-healing and working with others
  • Knowledge of the Chakras, the Aura and the Human Energy Field
  • Practical exercises of Grounding, Psychic Protection, Balancing the Chakras
  • Supervised practice of treating other people with Reiki
  • How to incorporate Reiki into your daily life

The cost of the course is £180 which includes a comprehensive Reiki 1 manual, your Reiki 1 Certificate and post course supervision.

“I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn Reiki in a safe, relaxing atmosphere with a professional, patient and knowledgeable Reiki Master. Excellent level of knowledge and skill, I admire the passion and respect Giancarlo has for this subject; he’s kind, professional and patient and open to all sorts of questions which I felt comfortable to ask. This course has inspired me to learn more, to fully immerse myself in this great new subject and to keep the momentum flowing. After completing Level 1, I am confident to say I plan on gaining Reiki Level 2 and above with Giancarlo”

Course Testimonials

” The course is very thorough but what was also lovely was Giancarlo’s light-hearted approach to teaching this subject which is everything but light. Overall, this was a well-structured and well-taught course and at the same a very enjoyable learning experience. What was also very positive is that I have learned a lot about myself during and after the course, especially when I started applying the newly gained knowledge of Reiki and self-awareness in my daily practice (self-healing using Reiki). “

- Jasna Dajic, Reiki 1 course, London, July 2015

“A brilliantly planned course with a very useful manual to take away and use as a refresher tool. The days were packed with enthusiastic teaching and it was clear Giancarlo loves Reiki and spirituality. The balance between theory and practice was perfectly timed and I felt confident that I could channel energy when working on someone else and feel a connection. A highly recommended course”

- Tammie Lee, Reiki 1 course, London, May 2015

“I completed level 1 Reiki training with Giancarlo. He is truly an excellent teacher and professional. Giancarlo created a very supportive environment in which to learn reiki healing and the meditation. I enjoyed our classes and feel I learned a lot from this training course. I have been doing reiki on myself and thoroughly enjoy it. I can’t wait to take the other classes. I highly recommend Giancarlo.”
