Reiki 1 – Foundation

Reiki 1 – Foundation

Reiki 1 is the first step in activating Reiki flow in your hands, learning about self-care and empowering your own self healing. It is ideal for anyone who wants to increase their energy, reduce stress, anxiety and experience deep rest. This is an interactive course with plenty of practical hands-on exercises and learning different ways of giving treatments.

There are no prerequisites needed to attend the course, only an open mind and a healthy desire to understand more about this complementary healing modality. Anyone can receive the attunements and after the course, Reiki is accessible to you for life. The workshop itself is a great healing experience and a wonderful way to take your health to the next level!

In a large scale multisite effectiveness trial conducted at Harvard University, significant improvements were observed including pain, drowsiness, tiredness, nausea, appetite, shortness of breath, anxiety, depression, and overall well-being, after just a single reiki session

what students say

animal reiki

“Spent an interesting weekend at this lovely cosy space learning about Reiki, a Japanese energy healing therapy that involves laying your hands on yourself, or on another person. I tend to take a pragmatic approach to things and was pleasantly surprised that the class was taught as a down-to-earth, practical means of self-care, healing and personal empowerment.

We were regularly asked to check in with how we felt, bringing awareness to our own bodies as we have a tendency to be in our heads a lot (I know I do). Ming Li guides you to figure things out for yourself – as a good therapist does – instead of feeding you answers. We learnt that we had to pay attention to our own emotional healing in order for the energy to flow effectively, that it’s not just a matter of putting your hands on another person. I was also thrilled to discover that reiki works well on animals, definitely trying it on my pets!”

who will support you

Ming Li trained as a Reiki master at The Reiki Centre. In her workshops, she prefers to assume the role of a facilitator, sharing from a place of authenticity and providing a safe space to guide students in their journey. At the same time, she also challenges them to explore their edge while being at peace with the unknown. This tough love comes from a desire to empower them to eventually to take charge of their healing, and have fun falling and picking themselves up.
