Reiki Training

Reiki Training


The teaching of Reiki outside of Japan is commonly divided into 
three levels,[62] or degrees, the most common of which are 
described below. Traditional Japanese Reiki was taught 
intensively under Usui's guidance, with weekly meditation 
meetings where Reiki was given and used to scan the body in 
order to supply an energetic diagnosis,[63] which is known in 
Japanese as Byosen-hō, as a Japanese Reiki treatment is 
intuitive and specifically directed in comparison to a Western 
Reiki treatment, which tends to generally treat the whole body 
instead of specific areas.

First degree


The first degree Reiki course,[64] sometimes given the Japanese 
name of Shoden ("初伝" in Japanese, meaning "'Elementary/Entry 
Teachings"),[65] teaches the basic theories and procedures. 
A number of "attunements" are given to the student by the 
teacher.[66] Students learn hand placement positions on the 
recipient's body that are thought to be most conducive to the 
process in a whole body treatment.[67] Having completed the 
first degree course, a Reiki practitioner can then treat himself 
and others with Reiki. Course duration is dependent on the 
Reiki Master Teacher; some hold four sessions spread over 
a number of days, others hold two sessions over two days.[68]

Second degree


In the second degree Reiki course,[69] sometimes given the 
Japanese name of Okuden ("奥伝" in Japanese, meaning 
"Inner Teachings"),[70] the student learns the use of a number 
of symbols that are said to enhance the strength and distance 
over which Reiki can be exerted.[71] This involves the use of 
symbols to form a temporary connection between the 
practitioner and the recipient, regardless of location and time, 
and then to send the Reiki energy.[72][73] Another attunement 
is given, which is said to further increase the capacity for Reiki 
to flow through the student, as well as empowering the use of 
the symbols.[74] Having completed the second level, the student 
can work without being physically present with the recipient - 
a practise known as "distant healing".[75] Students in Japan 
sometimes only attained the Second Degree after a period of 
10, sometimes 20, years of practice under Usui's tutorship, 
and the majority of student never attained the Third Degree.[76]

Third degree


Through the third degree, or "master training",[77] sometimes 
given the Japanese name of Shinpiden ("神秘伝" in Japanese, 
meaning "Mystery Teachings"),[78] the student becomes a 
Reiki Master. In Reiki terminology, the word "master" does 
not imply spiritual enlightenment, and is sometimes changed to 
"Master/Teacher" in order to avoid this confusion. According 
to the specific branch of Reiki, either one or more attunements 
can be carried out and the student learns a further symbol.[79] 
Having completed the master training, the new Reiki Master 
can attune other people to Reiki and teach the three degrees. 
The duration of the master training can be anything from a day 
to a year or more, depending on the school and philosophy of 
the Reiki Master giving the training. There are commonly two 
types of Master: Master Teacher and Master Practitioner; a 
Master Teacher is a Master of Reiki and also has the ability 
teach Reiki (i.e., attune others), though a Master Practitioner 
is a Master of Reiki but does not teach Reiki.
