Shoden - Level I

Shoden in Japanese means first (or beginner) teachings.

It is the first level of teachings in the traditional Japanese branch of Reiki called Usui Reiki Ryoho.

The goal of this level is to get the students acquainted with the basics concepts and techniques of the system of Reiki.

Explaining Energy is a challenging task, therefore the class is filled with practical hands-on exercises and treatments. This way the students can have a direct experience of Energy, which leads to a deeper, inner understanding of it.


We'll cover several topics, including the Reiki principles, the history, healing, energy, how to perform a treatment to oneself and others, as well as meditation techniques that will lay the foundation needed to proceed to the next level.

As a Shoden graduate you will receive a comprehensive Shoden manual, and a certificate.
