Shoden is the Japanese word for ‘first teachings’

The aim of Japanese first teachings is to help you build a spiritual practice into your life. This spiritual practice includes daily energy meditations and self healing. It is this practice that will help you to achieve a oneness with Reiki, to become Reiki as opposed to simply being a channel of Reiki.


Shoden is suitable for anyone. It does not matter whether you are completely new to Reiki, or you have been practicing for years with Western Style Reiki and now wish to deepen your understanding of Reiki by learning the traditional Japanese practices.


The course itself is completed over one day. With preperation and online teachings both before and after .By the end of the course you will have learnt the five main elements to Japanese Reiki:-


1.    Japanese energy meditations to strengthen and clear your energy

2.    Reiki precepts to deepen your spiritual connection

3.    A better understanding of internal and external energy

4.    Ability to use Reiki on yourself and others

5.    Experience 4 attunements / reiju


Energy (Ki) is something that cannot really be understood until you have experienced it. There are lots of books that go someway to explaining this, such as the Japanese Art of Reiki. However, the only real way to understand it, is to experience and understand it from within.


All our courses help you learn by your own experiences. Your two days will be filled with practical exercises giving you the opportunity to really feel and work with this amazing energy.  Japanese energy meditations will be practiced to build on this learning.


Full hands on treatments for self and others will be given and received, and there will also be many practical exercises to build even further on the experiences of those attending the two days.

Learning this way will help you gain an inner understanding of Reiki and yourself.


Healing is about creating balance, bringing heart and mind into harmony. By doing so, you begin to really connect with your true self. Starting out on the path to spiritual enlightenment, which is what Reiki was, and still is, all about.
