    Usui Reiki Level I* (also known as First Degree Usui Reiki) is the perfect introduction to a powerful yet gentle hands-on healing technique that you can use for self-healing, for practising on your family and friends, and for your pets.

    It is non-invasive and can be used safely in combination with any other therapy or standard medical treatment. It is easy to learn and there are no pre-requisites to this course.

    Reiki works on all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual – and works to bring each of these back into balance. This is because Reiki always goes to the root of the issue. It is an extremely gentle yet effective therapy and can help with depression, anxiety, sleep issues, physical pain and many more issues. Reiki also generally promotes a profound sense of calm and peace of mind.

    Learning Reiki can also assist you on your our own personal journey of self-healing; it is a gateway to enlightenment and a way of life that promotes healing and balance of the body, mind and spirit.

    This workshop includes:
    • What Reiki is and how it works
    • The history and origins of Reiki
    • An introduction to the human energy body
    • Attunements
    • Guided meditations
    • Grounding and protection techniques
    • How to self-heal
    • How to give a treatment to friends and family
    • And much, much more …

    Cost: £120

He is a qualified demonstrator for the Three Counties and South Wales Area of NAFAS and he travels nationwide to demonstrate Floral Art. He runs his own business French Touch Floristry, creative and exciting arrangements at weddings and themed events and also floral tributes for sadder times.
