Shoden (Reiki 1)
Shoden is a Japanese word meaning 'first teachings'.

Next course:
Sunday 25 June & Sunday 2 July 2017 - Oscailt Centre, Dublin 4
Contact Tessa for more information and bookings.

The 2-day Shoden course is the first level of teachings in the traditional Japanese branch of Reiki called Usui Reiki Ryoho.

You will learn:
  • The history of Usui Ryoho Reiki system
  • Meditation techniques to strengthen and clear your energy
  • The 3 energy centres (known as diamonds) within the Japanese system 
  • Reiki precepts (principles)
  • Establishing a spiritual connection to life helping you to feel happier and healthier
  • Hand positions to give a Reiki treatment to yourself and others

You will receive:
  • Four Reiju (attunements/blessings)
  • A comprehensive Shoden manual
  • Shoden Reiki 1 certificate
  • Ongoing post-course support

Energy is a word that very few people can explain in all its complexities. You could read a book on it or be told all about it but it is the actual experience itself that teaches you.

During the course, a complete treatment is given and received by each student and many hands-on exercises are used in a group environment during Shoden. This practical experience leads to an inner understanding of energy, a personal direct experience.

Traditional Japanese Reiki meditation techniques are taught and practiced over the two days to build on this energetic knowledge and to aid your own healing process. 

After completing Shoden in-person the student is asked to continue practising on oneself. This continues the energetic clearing, which is initiated during the course.

"When I signed up for Shoden, Reiki Level 1 with Lift Your Spirit, I was looking for a good introduction and foundation to begin my journey into practising Reiki.
The weekend course with Tessa as our teacher learning Usui Reiki Ryoho, the traditional Japanese System of Reiki was exactly what I was looking for. It felt as though I was learning the system as it was intended by the first Reiki founders and Masters in Japan. It was a truly wonderful learning and healing experience that will stay with me as I continue to learn and practice. It was very special and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in beginning or continuing to learn about the traditional Japanese System of Reiki. Thank you Tessa!"  - Sarah, Dublin
