What you will learn


ough Reiki Home Study everything that is mentioned in the "Live" Courses all levels can be provided at a distance if care is taken with the preparation of the course materials and the construction of the course. When it comes to practical work with energy – either on yourself or on other people – then the combination of step-by-step simple instructions, digital images to illustrate points, simple audio instructions and guided meditations on CD provide you with everything you need. And where it would be a lot easier if someone could actually *see* what is being described, then a DVD provides a simple way of watching a demonstration.

Our courses have been broken down into manageable ‘chunks’, and the student is given a series of ‘projects’ to carry out. For each project they are set sections of the course manual to read, they listen to a commentary track or tracks on an audio CD, they look at digital images and maybe use a guided meditation. They ask any questions that they need to, using e-mail. They then carry out exercises with energy, either working on themselves or on a group of people that they use as ‘guinea pigs’ - Reiki is, after all, a hands-on subject.

Finally, at each stage the student gives us detailed feedback on what they have been doing, what they have experienced, and what their ‘guinea pigs’ have experienced… and when it is clear that they have got to grips with the project, they move on to the next one.

If you need to take longer to get to grips with a method or if you feel you would really like to work on a particular stage to see what you can get out of it, to find out where it will take you before moving on, then this is possible with our Home Study Courses.  You can progress at the speed that is best for you.

Dr. Mikao Usui, or Usui Sensei as he is called by his students in Japan, is the founder of the Usui System of Reiki. He was born August 15, 1865 in the village of Yago in the Yamagata district of Gifu prefecture, Japan. Usui Sensei had an avid interest in learning and worked hard at his studies. He traveled to Europe and China to further his education. His curriculum included medicine, psychology, and religion. It is thought that he was from a wealthy family, as in Japan only the wealthy could afford to send their children to school. Eventually he became the secretary to Shinpei Goto, head of the department of health and welfare who later became the Mayor of Tokyo. The connections Usui Sensei made at this job helped him to become a successful businessman.
