Traditionally, Reiki training spans three Degrees, which are self-contained. You progress from one degree to the next according to your own rate of personal experience and inner growth.
Although Reiki is spiritual by nature, it is not attached to any cult or religion. There are no special conditions or equipment required to learn and practice Reiki, but people who want to be open to Reiki tend to have a natural readiness and ability to receive it.
People of any age can acquire the skill of Reiki. It is not uncommon for whole families to learn it. Among friends or within a family, Reiki offers a very positive opportunity to spend time together in a warm and secure atmosphere.
All of Julie’s Reiki workshops run over a two day period and are delivered on a ‘Retreat Style’ basis, allowing the student to relax and maximise the benefit of their Reiki experience.
During your First Degree Reiki workshop you will learn about the history of Reiki, how to incorporate Reiki into your everyday life and when and how to treat yourself and others.
If you have been attuned to the First Degree, and would like to learn more to deepen your Reiki experience and make it more meaningful, then you may wish to learn the Second Degree which incorporates ‘Distance Reiki’. In Japanese this Degree is called ‘Oku Den’, meaning a more thorough exploration of the self – or ‘deeper knowledge’.
Once you have practised the First and Second Degree for between one and three years, and attained sufficient experience with Reiki, then this may be the time for you to register for Reiki 3A (Master).
