First Degree/Shoden Reiki Training
Reiki (ray-kee) translates from Japanese as Sacred Energy of the Universe. 'Reiki Ryoho', is a Japanese hands-on Healing Art/Method that originated in 1922 with USUI Mikao Sensei, a Pureland Buddhist Monk. The practice of Reiki promotes relaxation, relief of tension, improved comfort, increased calm and self-healing. No matter what level you aspire to, reiki practice begins with 'self' and the focus of this weekend training is on 'Self-Reiki for Self-Care.'
