Learning Reiki is easy and requires no special skill or belief. All our classes are taught without religious or philosophical dogma.

At the Reiki Refuge, we currently provide training for all levels of Reiki with regularly scheduled workshops for Levels 1, 2 and 3.

Once you have taken the Reiki Level 1 training, you will hold the keys to tap into Reiki healing energy at any time you need. It’s a skill that is available to you at any time. Like all skills, it deepens with practice, and with each successive course you take.

Here are ten reasons why you should consider learning Reiki:

  1. Personal Healing

    When you first learn Reiki at the initial level you will be connected to Reiki energy for your life time. This means that whenever you need it for personal healing, relaxation and well-being then you’ve got it at your finger tips! In fact self-treatment everyday really is the whole point of Reiki. You can help yourself remain balanced, connected, relaxed and calm as you go through life with the support of Reiki. You can let it flow into all areas of your life and experience the changes that occur.

  2. Open Up To Love

    Reiki is a fabulous self-development tool, it will help change your attitude to life! I have found Reiki helps me to become more self-aware and open me up to a healthier approach to life, relationships or challenges. The change is subtle, often gradual and usually unconscious but you will find friends and family take notice of the new you. The biggest shift can be opening up to Love. Reiki helps you to learn to love yourself more and also to love and respect others in a way that allows them to learn their lessons and never take you for granted.

  3. Help Prevent Illness

    With Reiki in your life you will feel the calming effects as you develop inner strength and become more balanced. Stress no longer has to rule your life and drain your immune system. Many other emotional and mental factors can also have a negative effect on your holistic health and well being over time. Through daily self-treatment with Reiki, you will help to replenish your vital energy levels, not only on a physical level but also on a mental, emotional and spiritual level which can help prevent the development of more serious physical symptoms.

  4. Help Family, Friends and Pets

    Have you ever felt helpless when a family member or friend fell ill? The same benefits that you will feel from your connection with Reiki may also be experienced by any friends or family members (including pets and plants) that you choose to treat. This can be super beneficial for elderly relatives or family members and friends with long term illnesses or even those who are recovering from surgery. There is nothing more rewarding than being able to share your gift of healing helping someone dear to you who so desperately needs it and bringing happiness to their life.

  5. Get A Fresh Perspective On Life

    As you connect more and more to Reiki energy, you may open up to a new perspective on life. This may increase your curiosity for spiritual growth or simply help you to value the life that you have. Many Reiki Level 1 students feel excited to be connected to Universal Energy and have a renewed vigour and zest for life that leads them on a spiritual path with infinite possibility.

  6. Learn How To Give Back

    As you learn the principles of Reiki and connect with the energy, you learn the value of exchange. Giving and receiving and energy exchange are key to working with Reiki. This may help you to re-evaluate certain areas of your life, appreciate what you do have, be more generous and think of others. Gratitude is the attitude!

  7. Become More Respectful of Nature

    One of the Reiki precepts reminds us to be grateful for every living thing. When they learn Reiki many of my Reiki students use Reiki to connect with plants and other living creatures to give back healing energy to our Earth. This in turn helps raise the vibration of our green spaces and neighbourhoods so the overall effect is life changing.

  8. Get Connected To Your Spirituality / Subtle Self

    Ever had that feeling there is something missing in your life but you can’t pin point what it is? Reiki will helps you when you are feeling lost, since Reiki re-connects you to your higher self, you know, the real you which only comes out when you are feeling safe, confident, calm and strong. By re-establishing this relationship with your higher self you will become more intuitive and empowered with a sense of yourself and your life purpose.

  9. Reiki Is Simple and Easy To Learn

    Anyone can learn Reiki if they are willing. It’s simple to learn and can be learnt in a fun weekend workshop where you can meet other wonderful shining souls. There is no exam or paper to write, you can start working with the energy immediately and following your attunement the Reiki energy will be with you forever. You only need to practice, practice, practice.

  10. Learn The Art Of Inviting Happiness

    The founder of Usui Reiki, Mikao Usui, described Reiki as the “art of inviting happiness.” Doesn’t that sound like something everyone could use in their lives? Often, people don’t know what happiness actually is, and seek material gains or the next promotion. But having a really, truly happy life goes far beyond that. Happiness comes from a profound understanding of the Universe and knowing your place there, which is exactly what Reiki sets out to do.

Reiki Level 1 (Shoden)

This is the beginners level but also the full activation of Reiki in your hands. Once you have completed this level you will be able to use Reiki to heal yourself and loved ones. This level gives you Reiki for life and many people who are using Reiki for personal use and in and around the home for friends and family find this level both fulfilling and enough for their personal needs. The training takes place over a 12 hour workshop either over one weekend or weekday/evening combinations.

Reiki Level 2 (Okuden)

This workshop focuses on healing at the mental and emotional level. Reiki II heals past experiences, assists with addictions and negative thinking patterns. Distance healing is also learned and practiced. Distance healing includes sending Reiki to someone around the globe, or just across town! It also includes healing our earlier years, or situations in this life, as well as the ability to heal our past experiences. The training takes place over a 12 hour workshop either over one weekend or weekday/evening combinations.

Reiki Level 3 (Shinpiden)

In Reiki Level 1, the seed was planted within you to realise that you are and always have been connected Reiki. The master level makes this vividly clear to you in the form of the traditional Usui Reiki master symbol. This empowers you to teach Reiki to other people, as well as opening you up to new healing tools, both on the treatment table and in your everyday life.
