Certified Reiki 1 (Shoden) Level Class – Japanese Usui Reiki Ryoho

June 28, 2017 to July 1, 2017


Are you looking for ways reduce stress in your life, promote self-healing and empower yourself? If so, Reiki may be what you are seeking!

During these difficult times when the world seems to be in an upheaval, Reiki helps one to find grounding and stability. As we build our foundation we learn to release the grip on anger and worry, and move toward increasing feelings of gratitude and compassion. When we bring this energetic shift in our lives, not only does it help up to bring feelings of peace into our own lives, but it also helps us to bring peace out into the world. You carry a ‘Reiki offering’ which is extended to all who are ready to receive it. In your own small way, you are able to help the earth and humanity by offering limitless kindness, love and compassion – gifts that are always welcomed and needed!

Reiki is a 100 year old Japanese technique that is used for stress reduction and relaxation. This gentle and compassionate healing energy is delivered through the palms of the practitioner and provides healing on physical, mental/emotional and spiritual levels. Reiki is known to reduce aches and pains, decrease anxiety and depression, deliver increased clarity and self-awareness, create a stronger spiritual connection, aid in sleeping and so much more. It has no boundaries and is limitless. Best of all, it is simple to learn and simple to use!

Shoden is a Japanese word which means “first teachings.” In this Certified Reiki Level 1 class you learn how to heal yourself with a daily practice to promote heath and well-being. Reiki is received through an ceremonial “attunement” connecting you directly to universal energy (Rei). It restores and rejuvenates your life force (ki).

In class you will learn the history of Reiki and its founder Usui Mikao Sensei, the Reiki Principles, what Reiki is, its benefits, Japanese meditations and techniques, how to do self-treatments, how to give chair and table treatments, and how to establish a successful Reiki routine. In addition you are taught how to flow Reiki to loved ones, pets, plants, food and more.

Star Island is an ideal place to immerse yourself in a Reiki experience. Each day will include time for meditation, journaling and enjoying the beauty of the island. As much time as possible will be spent outside.

While on Star Island, you are supported by the four elements: earth, water, fire and air. We will have a fire ceremony to release what no longer serves you and to invite in new transformative energies. This ceremony creates a powerful conclusion to the Shoden Reiki retreat.

“First the mind must be healed.
Second, the body must be made sound.
If the mind is healthy, conforming to a path of integrity,
then the body becomes sturdy of its own accord.”

~ Mikao Usui Sensei, Reiki founder (1865-1926)
