USUI / TIBETAN REIKI
This page will tell you a little about the Usui / Tibetan Reiki courses and workshops we offer here in Llechryd, from Reiki 1 to Master Teacher level. We use the Tibetan attunement system developed by William Lee Rand, which teaches Reiki in the traditional Usui forms to Master Practitioner level, and uses a different attunement system at Master Teacher level, incorporating two additional symbols that are rooted in Tibetan Buddhism.
We (Mark and Hilary) began our Reiki training in 1997, and completed our Master Teachers training at the start of 2000. Since then we have taught and attuned over 70 people to Reiki, and taught over 120 separate course at all levels from stage 1 to Master Teacher. Mark has also been a working practitioner for nearly 15 years, and so we have plenty of experience of working with and teaching Reiki. Furthermore, our Reiki lineage is very short - with only 7 Reiki Masters between ourselves and Mikao Usui (and 2 between us and William Lee Rand, whose attunement methods we prefer to use) - thus you may be assured that you are being taught using material and understandings that are very close to the original Reiki source.
We welcome students on any of our Reiki Training courses, even if we have not been your Masters at earlier levels. We also welcome students who are Reiki trained with other Masters who wish to attend any of our "entry level" and "advanced level" workshops, which are offered to supplement and extend your existing Reiki practice. (You will need to show us your certificates and manuals, so that we know how much you currently understand.) Our own students are welcome to attend any Reiki training courses they have already completed with us at any time, if they need to refresh their knowledge, for a nominal charge.
All charges include our full back-up and support after you have completed your training, manuals, and of course a certificate. Also included are snacks and refreshments. All you need to supply are writing materials, lunch and yourself!
Usui Tibetan Reiki 1 (2 days)
On this two day course you will receive four attunements and learn how to
use Reiki safely, enabling you to treat yourself, family and friends. We will
work through various exercises, including visualisations for cleansing and
balancing and for meeting your Reiki Guides. Hand positions, with
alternatives, for self-treatment, treatments on seated recipients and
treatments on recipients lying prone will be taught and practised extensively.
We will also address energetic protection and supply information about the
subtle body and chakras.
A full manual is included.

On this two day course you will receive two attunements and learn three second degree Reiki Usui symbols, enabling you to know how to use these safely as a practitioner and in distant healing. Once again visualisations and exercises will be included, and there will be a chance to ask any questions and to get help on any problems that may have arisen following Reiki 1. Extra techniques including a Mind/Body Re-programming technique; Beaming Reiki; and using a quartz crystal focus for distant and group healing work is included.

A very comprehensive teaching manual is included.
Mikao Usui - Founder of the Usui Reiki System
Reiki (pronounced ray - key) is a Japanese term that may be defined as "Universal Life-force Energy". Reiki works at subtle levels to promote healing, balance and wholeness on spiritual, mental, emotional and physical levels. It is a simple, natural, hands-on healing system in which the Universal Energy is channelled through the hands of the practitioner to the recipient.
