Reiki Level 1 Course for Personal and Professional Development
Reiki Level 1 traditional training is the ideal start to self-discovery, self-care, personal development, and spiritual growth. This course offers the first steps towards a Reiki energy healing professional practice.
The practice of Reiki is an original method of healing, developed by Mikao Usui in Japan early in the 20th century. Reiki is a natural healing energy that works on every level, not just the physical, and promotes the body’s regenerative self-healing ability. Reiki is non-invasive and we use it holistically to restore balance in mind, body, and spirit.
The forthcoming Reiki 1 class takes place both online and in-person, to create a multimedia-rich learning experience:
- 19 – 21:30 BST, 21 & 22 October: Zoom Live (Recordings will be available for future reference & practice)
- 10:30 – 17:30 BST SUNDAY 24 OCT 2021 at the StillPoint in Liverpool Street, London EC2M 4RH.
Reiki 1 Course Content
I will initiate you in both original Japanese Usui Reiki Ryoho and Western-style Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho teachings (the best of both worlds) and share with you a prestigious Reiki Lineage, its principles, philosophy, endeavors, and ways to achieve wellbeing and happiness.
Immediately after your first Reiki Empowerment, you will connect with the Universal Life-force Energy consciously at will and gain healing and intuitive abilities. Yay!
You will learn energy exercises to strengthen your resilience and regenerative capacity, special breathing and meditation techniques for aura cleansing, space clearing & purification, stress relief, self-healing, healing others (people, plants & pets – all living things), purifying and infusing energy (bring a bottle of water, your crystals and lucky charms), chakra sensing, healing and activation techniques, and much more, including an introduction to setting up a professional practice.

You can receive the attunements and learn Reiki just for self-help and informal practice. It’s fun and life-affirming. Alternatively, you may decide to pursue the professional Reiki Practitioner training pathway redesigned to meet the highest standards set by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) National Occupational Standards (NOS), and Skills for Health. Either way, this is the beginning!
New Reiki Practitioner Training Requirements for the Future
In terms of UK National Occupational Standards (NOS), they now classify Reiki Level 1 Traditional Reiki Training as an Informal Practice of Reiki/Folk Art: the long-established tradition of sharing Reiki with family, friends, and others in the local community. Not a major part of a person’s living. Both setting and relationship are informal. Within the current framework of the new Reiki Practitioner training curriculum, this is Module 1 (Reiki theory & practical skills). Taking part in this training awards you with the traditional Reiki Level 1 (Shoden, first teachings) certificate, and you can still practice Reiki with confidence.
The new Reiki Practitioner Certification pathway is a concerted effort to bring Reiki training on par with other therapy courses and comprises 65 hours of contact training over 9 months, including Module 2 (Practitioner skills) and Module 3 (Practice Management) as well as Reiki Level 2 training. Yes, many hours of case studies, practice development study days, reflective practice, reiki shares, and lots of self-healing. It requires genuine commitment, but you can do it in your own time, with no pressure. It’s a very rewarding labour of self-love and dedication on the path of personal growth and life transformation.
