The Usui Rei-ki Network was founded in 1990 by Barbara McGregor, Rei-ki Master Teacher and founder of WellBeing Magazine. It is an international co-operative to link graduates in the teaching centres in Europe, America, Asia and Australia.
How to Master the Art of Rei-ki
There are two stages or levels in the practice of Rei-ki, according to the original Usui tradition, taught within the Usui Rei-ki Network.
Access to the first level, Rei-ki I, can be acquired in a single three-day (usually 20 hours) seminar - an investment which brings a lifetime of benefits as no further classes are necessary. The technique can be integrated into daily life at the touch of your hands. During your Rei-ki I seminar you will receive four 'energy transfers' via the crown of your head through to your hands by direct contact with your teacher.
If you choose to progress to the optional advanced level, Rei-ki II, you are also given a way to increase the potency of the energy flow and to project the energy over long distances to serve others who are not within reach. There is also enhancement of your extra-sensory perception potential. Rei-ki II is a three day (or evening) 18-20 hour seminar involving two further, more complex energy transfers. Further class attendance and daily practice is not essential, though of course is beneficial.
What does this training offer?
Conducted to high professional standards of presentation and logistics, the seminars provide:
Direct personal contact between student and teacher during each session of the three-day seminar is assured.
Increased energy levels and personal tranquillity are achieved, following a step-by-step procedure which is simple and immediately effective, on yourself and others. This is demonstrated on several occasions during the seminar with participants practising on each other, under supervision, to gain ample experience.
You will be taught to develop perception of the Rei-ki energy which flows from the underside of the hands, palms and fingers, with indications of the level of need determined by the strength and range of effects, eg. heat, chill, tingling, pulsing, etc.
You will be given holistic insights into the metaphor between the body and the psyche. So you will have a deeper understanding of the meaning of health problems which may have resulted from past physical and emotional traumas and destructive patterns.
You will discover how to improve your personal and professional relationships, healing old wounds and forging new bonds as old barriers are lowered.
You will be empowered to deal with future challenges in a positive, constructive and effective manner, whether it is a physical emergency, accident, or an emotional crisis for yourself or others, without conscious effort. Courage replaces procrastination. Crisis becomes opportunity.
As aspects of your life experience are brought into balance, harmony in body, mind, emotions and spirit becomes achievable.
Upon graduation, you will receive an authorised certificate of completion.
