Shoden Level 1

Jikiden Reiki Shoden level is all about learning practical “hands-on” Reiki.  This course, is suitable for complete beginners and experienced Reiki practitioners… Everyone starts here.
You will be learning Authentic Japanese energy healing with Debbie-Ann Champion, Jikiden Reiki is Reiki in its original form with nothing added or left out, with cultural and spiritual roots intact...
This 2 day course is focused on you gaining effective, practical skills to use this hand healing art with confidence.  Giving you life-long Reiki skills to positively support your own health and that of others, if you wish.
When Usui Sensei was asked "if I can heal others, can I heal myself?" his reply was "Undoubtedly, If you can't heal yourself, how can you heal others?"
Following Reiju... Where the hands go Reiki will flow... to yourself or someone else. 
Receiving Reiju awakens the dormant healing abilities of a person who can then transmit/channel Reiki.  Reiju is performed person to person; that is by a Shihan/Teacher to the Learner… we use the original method passed down and developed by Mikao Usui Sensei. 
This Shoden level course is the first step... after this you can take Okuden Level in the same month if you wish, so you have all the skills for "inviting health and happiness" that Usui Sensei developed for Reiki practitioners.

  • What Reiki is and how it works, accelerating the body's natural healing ability

Sometimes people wish to refresh what they have learnt, once they have started putting the Shoden course into practice... they are ready to ask those pertinent questions... as our sensitivity to Reiki increases with our daily practice. So many students are surprised at how much they get out of repeating... often saying it has deepened their understanding of Jikiden Reiki. 
Those wishing to become Jikiden Reiki teachers, are now requested to repeat Shoden and Okuden with their original teacher and many professional therapists may wish to repeat for CPD reasons.
