Reiki Level 1 & 2 Attunements (UK Reiki Federation)
Attunement workshops are held regularly – see here for upcoming dates.
Reiki is a gentle, effective form of ‘hands-on’ healing (although it can also be practised ‘hands off’) that restores and replenishes energy. It is calming and deeply relaxing, a simple and practical way of helping our bodies in their own natural healing process. Reiki can make a big difference in many areas of our lives and may be used as a path for spiritual and self-growth, to reduce stress and anxiety and as a healing technique for yourself, family and friends. It is a non-invasive complementary therapy and supports orthodox medicine or can be used alone but is not a replacement for traditional medication or treatments. It is not based on any belief or faith.
Reiki is divided into 3 levels all having an attunement process. Reiki 1 is a complete system in itself and is a pre-requisite of Reiki 2 which again is complete and is a pre-requisite for Mastership. Each degree furthers one’s ability to channel increasing amounts of life-force energy. Anyone can be attuned to Reiki – no special abilities are required to learn, no prior knowledge, experience or beliefs are necessary, just the simple desire to learn.
The attunements have in themselves a very powerful balancing and healing effect. When you are attuned to Reiki your body energy channels are opened to the flow of this universal energy – it is a ‘re-awakening’ and ‘unlocking’ of ancient knowledge going back thousands of years. This results in an increase in ‘ki’ for your own healing and development and connects you to the universal ‘ki’ so that you are able to channel this for yourself and others. A Reiki attunement can be described as adjusting one’s antenna to the correct frequency, much as we do with a radio.
Level 1 is partly about learning to become a clear channel for Reiki, about learning to ‘let go and let the energy flow’. The attitude being one of inviting and allowing Reiki to expose any mental and emotional blocks that hold you back from being completely who you are. Once you have experienced the attunement at Reiki 1, all you need do is place your hands down with the intention to heal and the Reiki energy will flow. From the time of the attunement and for the rest of your life, you will have access to Reiki
Although the main purpose of Level 1 is for personal use and development, you will be able to give Reiki treatments to family and friends.
Level 1 attunements are held over an initial two days with a follow up day around a month later and cost £200 including your own Reiki Manual, ongoing support and Reiki shares
During this natural progression from Level 1, you will find that your connection with the Reiki energy deepens both for yourself and when giving to others. During Reiki 2 you will learn symbols which support you to focus the healing energy on mental and emotional issues, as well as directing this energy more specifically. You will also learn how to send distance healing to others.
Following completion of Level 2 you will be able to practise Reiki as a professional therapist.
