Discover the flow

Reiki Level 1 - The First Degree "SHODEN'


Mandatory Requirement:  N/A

Duration:  1 day


Level 1 is an individual's initiation into Reiki and is open to everyone. The focus in Level 1 is on opening the energy channels on a physical level, allowing the person to connect to the universal life force energy which flows from the cosmos and down through the crown, heart and hands.


Self Reiki treatments are important after a Level 1 study and attunement, for the goal of level 1 designation is to encourage students to focus on practising Reiki  on themselves, thereby working through their own emotional obstacles.

The Reiki 1 attunement or sacred ceremony is made up of 4 attunements delivered by the Reiki Master.  Many experience physical symptoms of energy in their palms after the attunement, including tingling.
