Reiki Level 1 is the introduction to reiki. This course is designed to teach you the fundamentals of grounding, receiving, and transmitting reiki energy. You will learn techniques to open yourself up to reiki energy, Learn self-reiki, and the first two reiki symbols. What makes reiki unique from other energy therapies is the energetic initiation performed by the Instructor. This initiation for Reiki level 1 is called a “reiki attunement.” Attunements are designed to energetically align your body/mind/spirit to maintain a clear channel to be a proper channel for reiki.
Reiki Level 2 takes your practice to the next level. This course is a short review and refresher of the fundamentals learned in Reiki 1, and then goes into new techniques including distance healing and more in-depth self healing. This reiki instruction will further your connection with reiki energy, and help release negative feelings regarding people from past and/or present. This course is probably the most fun to teach because there is a noticeable acceleration in the learning curve of the students. The symbols learned are more complex, and there is a hands-on partner practice similar to reiki Level 1.
Reiki Master training is the highest level of Usui Reiki. This course is designed to teach the most advanced reiki symbols and experience an Master Reiki attunement. A portion of this course is dedicated to teaching reiki and how to perform attunements. Reiki Master is certainly a calling for people who would like to teach. Most people are satisfied with completing reiki Level 2 and starting a practice.
