Introduction to Western Reiki

Reiki is a simple Japanese energy system anyone can learn

Reiki training is provided by Jan Griffin who is a Reiki Master Teacher and practitioner

What is Reiki? Reiki is an oriental method of working with energy that you can use for your own benefit and for the benefit of other people. In its original Japanese form in the 1900s Reiki was very much about working on yourself: it was a system that you could use for self-healing, self-development and spiritual development. Reiki is now being classed as a complementary therapy, so people might practise Reflexology, or Aromatherapy, or they might practise Reiki.

There are very many different ways of practising Reiki, with lots of different Reiki ‘variations’ having been developed in the West over the years, but, whatever the variety, Reiki is something that you can use for yourself, for your own personal benefit, and it is something that you can also share with other people.

Experience peace of mind and inner calm
Relieve stress and anxiety
Bring a sense of balance and wholeness
Help family and friends
Explore your spiritual side
Let go of emotional baggage

Reiki is very simple and doesn’t need to be overly complicated or talked about in mysterious mystical language.

What is Reiki energy?
Chi, ki and prana
To understand Reiki, you need to get your head around the idea that there is a subtle energy that permeates us and surrounds us, an energy which we can learn to experience and direct, an energy which we can move through our bodies and channel through us into other people. Whilst this may seem to be a strange thing to believe from a Western perspective, it is a central belief in many Asian cultures and underlies many exercise systems, meditation practices and healing or treatment methods.

In China, for example, this energy is referred to as “chi”, which you may have heard of. Chi is used in a whole range of Oriental practices, for example:

Feng Shui (the art of placement)
Acupuncture
Tai Chi and Qi Gong
Martial arts

Reiki is something to do with this energy, this ‘chi’, but Reiki is different from Tai Chi and Yoga, and Reiki treatments are different from Shiatsu and Acupuncture treatments.

When you practise acupuncture or shiatsu you are using your skills as a practitioner to detect subtle imbalances in energy flow and you are using your considerable knowledge of the meridian system to direct you in making specific and precise ‘invasive’ manipulations of the client’s energy system.

But when you practise Reiki as a treatment method you are not detecting and diagnosing and intervening. When you treat someone with Reiki you are allowing an unlimited external source of ‘energy’ to flow through you into the client. The energy is drawn through you according to the client’s need on that occasion: you are not directing the energy, you are a conduit through which the energy flows, you are creating a ‘healing space’ that the client can use to bring their own energy system into balance, without conscious and deliberate intervention on your part.

Who can learn Reiki?

You can! Anyone can learn Reiki. There are no special requirements. You just need to be open-minded and be prepared to spend a day with like-minded people, exploring an exciting energy method.

Find peace

When you learn Reiki, you’ll find that this will bring a sense of peace, contentment and serenity, helping you to feel more positive and better able to cope.

Explore spirituality

Reiki helps you to de-stress and find a contented space inside you that you can access anytime, and you can explore your spirituality free from any religion or dogma.

Experience self-healing

Spend a little time each day working on your self-healing and share the benefits of Reiki with your friends and family.

In order to learn Reiki you need to do two things: you need to be ‘attuned’ to the energy and you need to be taught what to do to use Reiki for your own benefit and for the benefit of others.

Ongoing Support and Advice

Once you’ve been on your Level 1 Reiki course I want you to know that I will be on hand to deal with any questions or queries that you might have to help and support you in your practice of Reiki.

You will be able to attend regular Reiki shares which will enable you to meet other Reiki practitioners to share experience, knowledge and treatments

The Four Aspects:

Usui Shiki Ryoho can be translated as "the Usui System of Natural Healing."

Healing Practice, Personal Development, Spiritual Discipline and Mystic Order are the Four Aspects of Usui Shiki Ryoho.

These aspects describe the path of a student and the development of the system itself. This path and this development are not made by human decision but by the natural process of maturation. The human decision is to commit to this practice and follow one's own path.

Reiki level 1 training & attunements

My Reiki Level 1 training course lasts for a minimum of 15-16 hours, which is equivalent to more than two day’s training. You spend approx. nine hours working through a multimedia study pack, at your leisure, and then attend for approximately 2 days face to face course with attunement.

My pre-course reading and listening will focus you on these areas:

What Reiki is and where it comes from (the History, Background and Development)
What Reiki’s founder taught and how we can follow the original system in the modern world
The Reiki ‘precepts’, mindfulness, and the use of empowerment s / attunements
How to benefit from daily energy exercises and self-treatments
How to use Reiki on other people
I will review this information briefly on the day of the course, but most of the training day concentrates on hands-on practice rather than theory.

Reiki Course Manual & audio CD for each level you achieve

Each Reiki course is accompanied by a comprehensive, professionally-printed manual that covers everything I teach on the day, and more besides, so there is no need to take notes. Note taking is so unsatisfactory: you frantically scribble, desperate not to miss what is being said and when you get home you can’t read your writing! On our courses you can relax, safe in the knowledge that everything we do is there in the manual for you to take home with you


Tune in to the Reiki energy

During the day of your course, you will go through three simple and powerful ‘connection’ rituals, called `attunements‘ open up the channels through which Reiki flows. Reiki ‘attunements’ enable you to use Reiki for your own benefit and for the benefit of the people around you – your family and friends. This ability will stay with you for life, you will never lose it, and Reiki works for everyone!

Learn to work with energy

You will start to work with your energy in different ways. You will learn to feel your own energy and you will practice feeling other people’s energy, and we will run through and practice some Japanese energy exercises that you can use every day to balance your energy system and to make you a stronger and clearer channel for Reiki

Learn how to Treat yourself using Reiki

Reiki in its original form is much more about working on your self than it is about working on other people, so you will learn approaches that you can use to work on yourself, and we will go through self-treatment ‘meditation’.
You can find out how relaxing an experience it is!

We will spend some time talking about how to give treatments to other people, and we will demonstrate some ‘standard’ hand positions. Although it is good practice to work intuitively, and that will come with time, it is reassuring to begin with to have some basic guidelines to follow! With time and practice, you should be able to leave the standard hand positions behind you and let the energy guide you (we cover this on the Reiki level 2’ – part of the course). We will also talk about balancing and energising the aura, and ‘scanning’ with your hands. You will practice these techniques on each other, and I will give you feedback on what you have done and noticed.

You will pair up with another student, give a full Reiki treatment and receive a full Reiki treatment, under my guidance and support. I will run through the basics, you will treat and be treated from head to foot, and you’ll find out what an amazing experience giving and receiving Reiki can be! When you have finished, I will review what you have felt and noticed, and what your ‘client’ has experienced!

You will then swap over, and receive a full Reiki treatment from your partner, so you can know what it feels like to be on the receiving end! Again, together we will review what you both experienced.

During the training we will also discuss

A history of my own style of Reiki and my lineage
Why there should be person to person attunement
Basic principles of Reiki systems and energy
Importance of self treatments
Different methods and techniques for giving Reiki, including any limitations
The possible effects of Reiki

Reiki level 2 training & attunements

Who can learn Reiki Level 2?

You need to have taken Reiki Level 1 already and have completed 25 case studies at level 1. I recommend that you leave a couple of months, at least, between your First and Second Level courses. This gives you a chance to get grips with, and practise, what you learned. It’s not a race!

As Reiki Level 2 enables you to practice Reiki professionally you need to ensure your skills meet the criteria stated by the
Reiki Council Core Curriculum and the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Reiki. This will ensure that in this changing environment of regulation of complementary therapies. Meeting these standards means that you will meet all the required criteria for membership of professional associations and regulatory bodies.
If you are already a complementary therapist you may already have these skills so evidence can be provided
If you are not a therapist I will guide you through this criteria

Reiki training is provided by Jan Griffin who is a Reiki Master Teacher and practitioner

Role of the Practitioner
Communication
Professional relationships
Work role and practice
Confidentiality
Consent
Keeping Records
Health and well-being
Deepen your self-healing
Anatomy & Physiology
Professional standards and adhering to codes of practice
Study will include

What Reiki’s founder taught and how we can follow the original system in the modern world
The importance of experiencing a state of oneness and its use in distant healing
How to open yourself to intuitive working
The Reiki symbols: how to draw them and say their names

You should already have experienced that sense of peace, contentment and serenity that Reiki brings you, and perhaps experienced a spiritual awakening. Now you will carry out special symbol meditations to deepen your self-healing, focusing on energies that bring powerful physical and emotional balancing.

Explore intuition

Original Japanese Reiki is a very free and fluid system. An important part of Reiki Level 2 is to move beyond standard hand positions when you treat people, to embrace intuitive working. You’ll learn how to allow the energy to guide you in terms of where you rest your hands; it’s a lovely way to work.

Practise distant healing

You’ll learn how to send Reiki long-distance in a variety of ways, so you can experiment and find the approach that works best for you. Distant healing is a very humbling and fulfilling practice, a beautiful meditation that connects deeply to the person, or people, that you share Reiki with.

Your Reiki Level 2 training course lasts for a total of 60 hours, which is equivalent to 25 hours face to face training and observations. You spend approx. 35hours working through a multimedia study pack and case studies at your leisure, During our time together we will review your home study and the occupational standards, before focusing on practical energy work, guided by me

This approach provides you with a complete training in Reiki at Second Level. You can learn at your leisure, in the comfort of your own home, allowing you to learn the three Reiki symbols fully, giving a chance for all the information to sink in and helping you to realise any questions that you might have. You then arrive on the course well-prepared and already knowing a great deal about Reiki. We spend the face to face part of your course working with energy and putting what you have learned into practice.

Explore the power of Intent and Intuition

Reiki Level 2 should be about moving beyond the basic guidelines of First Degree, to embrace intuitive working and to understand the importance of intent. A major part of this course involves using a Japanese approach to treating others that allows the energy to guide your hands to the right places to treat, so rather than following a prescribed set of hand positions, you will gear your hand combinations to the energy needs of each person you work on. Intuitive Reiki treatments are something special: deep and intense, a wonderful experience for both the giver and receiver.

Strengthen your connection to Reiki

‘Reiki Level 2` brings the student up to ‘practitioner’ level, and provides the three Japanese Attunement that I give you will enable you to ‘hold’ and channel more energy than was possible at Level 1 Reiki. The Attunement will also connect you strongly to aspects of the energy that are represented by the three Reiki symbols. You will learn how to use the three Reiki symbols and mantras, which can be used as a basis for self-treatment, and which help to make your treatments stronger and more effective.

The Reiki Level 2 Course material including manual. Audio CD with Reiki instruction & meditations, Anatomy & Physiology Work book or CD available to assist your learning experience.

Each Reiki course is accompanied by a comprehensive, professionally-printed manual that covers everything we teach on the day, and more besides, so there is no need to take notes.

National Occupational Standards (NOS)

National Occupational Standards (NOS)

National Occupational Standards (NOS) are statements of competence and are written to measure outcomes. National Occupational Standards describe good practice. Essentially, standards describe what happens in the workplace -- not what people are like.

In 2009 the revision of National Occupational Standards for Complementary and National Healthcare was completed, under the guidance of Skills for Health. There was extensive consultation with the public and practitioners, and representatives from 12 different therapy groups worked on the revisions over a 12 month period

The National Occupational Standards for Reiki are included within these revisions, and are made up of three separate competencies, the first two of which are common to all therapy groups, and the third one being specifically for Reiki. The competencies, all of which would need to be achieved, may be downloaded from this website courtesy of Skills for Health who own copyright of the competences:
