Your Reiki 'Second Degree' course lasts for 12-13 hours, which is equivalent to two day's training. You spend approx. six hours working through a multimedia study pack, at your leisure, and then attend a single-day live course. During the live part of your training you will focus on practical energy work, there will be no more than four students on any of our Second Degree courses.
This approach provides you with a complete training in Reiki at Second Degree. You can learn at your leisure, in the comfort of your own home, allowing you to learn the three Reiki symbols fully, giving a chance for all the information to sink in and helping you to realise any questions that you might have. You then arrive on the course well-prepared and already knowing a great deal about Reiki. We spend the live part of your course working with energy and putting what you have learned into practice.
What is so important about Reiki Second Degree?
First Degree Reiki provides you with a solid foundation for your future practice, and provides you with important tools that you can use to help balance your energy system, and promote self-healing and spiritual development. But there is far more to Reiki than can be passed on - or assimilated - in just one course. Reiki 'Second Degree' provides you with ways of deepening your experience of the energy, furthering your self-healing and spiritual development, and providing you with approaches that will enhance your treatment of others, whether in person or at a distance. Second Degree moves your Reiki onto a new level.
Further your self healing and spiritual development
Our Second Degree course echoes the original system that Reiki's founder taught by still rooting your practice in personal energy work. Reiki is first and foremost about you, about your development and growth, and at Second Degree you will learn further tools that you can use to move your experience of Reiki on to the next level.
You will learn to enhance and deepen your practice by getting to grips with and fully assimilating two important energies – referred to as earth ki and heavenly ki in the original system. Meditating on earth ki and heavenly ki regularly will help you to familiarise yourself with the differences and enable you to use them intuitively when you are self treating or treating others.
We will use some symbols to represent or access these important energies, or aspects of the energy. Two of the symbols that we use are based on those that were taught to one of Dr Hayashi's students, rather than the quite distorted symbols that you can find on some Western Reiki courses. A further symbols has been drawn for us by a Japanese Master Calligrapher, and so is completely accurate.
Practice Distant Healing
Distant healing is possible at First Degree level, of course, but we focus more on distant healing at Second Degree. But we come at distant healing from a different angle than most courses: distant healing is an expression of 'oneness', one of the goals of the original Reiki system taught by Mikao Usui in the 1920s in Japan. We explore oneness, its significance, and the way that this state can be expressed when working on others either in person or at a distance.
