Reiki Second Degree (Okuden) Training Course

The Reiki ‘Second Degree’ course is equivalent to a two day training course which consists of a home study pack and a practical training day. Before the course, you will spend approximately 6 hours working through a home study pack and then attend a single day practical training day where you will focus on practical energy work in the company of a few other students. This approach provides you with a complete training in Reiki at Second Degree.

The Reiki ‘Second Degree’ course will provide you with ways of deepening your experience and understanding of the energy, furthering your self-healing and spiritual development, and providing you with practical approaches and tools that will enhance your treatment of others, whether in person or at a distance.

The Home Study Pack
The study pack consists of a comprehensive ‘Okuden’ Manual and two audio cd’s which cover everything you will learn on the day of the course.

The first cd contains 60 minutes of commentary which summarises the main themes of your manuel:

– What Reiki’s founder taught and how we can follow the original system in the modern world
– How to benefit from the energies of earth ki and heavenly ki through meditation
– The importance of experiencing a state of oneness and its use in distant healing
– How to use earth ki and heavenly ki when treating others
– How to open yourself to intuitive working
– Ways of directing the energy using intent
– The Reiki symbols: how to draw them and say their names

The second cd contains guided meditations:

– Hatsu Rei Ho (energy exercises)
– Self teatment meditation
– Distant healing session
– Symbol meditation

The first two meditations are introduced at First Degree level. The second two meditations are used at Second Degree level.
