Reiki I

1 day course

The first level opens your healing channels and enables you to
Reiki for self-healing, as well as for helping friends, family, pets
and even your plants! This is a fun, relaxing, experiential day, with a
small group of like-minded people.

You’ll learn about the history of Reiki and the similarities
differences between Reiki, spiritual healing, therapeutic touch and
other energy healing systems.

The course includes practical experience of giving and
receiving Reiki;
depending on numbers this is sometimes done one-to-one and sometimes in

Learning Reiki I can be a wonderfully relaxing and empowering
experience – especially when you allow yourself to relax and enjoy the
day. If this is your first exploration of energy work / healing, you
may be wondering whether ‘it’ really exists and works, and if so, you
may be worrying about whether you will be able to do it. Rest assured,
‘it’ exists, you will be able to experience your own energies and how
it feels to receive Reiki healing and you will be able to channel Reiki
healing to others before the end of this course. This is so for
everyone who has learned Reiki with me so far, and it will be the same
for you.

During the course you’ll learn the hand positions for
self-healing, as
well as for treating others. One of the wonderful things about Reiki is
that it starts with taking care of and appreciating yourself –
something we all need, I think. Following this course, you’ll be giving
yourself Reiki daily for 21 days to integrate the new healing energies
and to help re-balance and clear your own system.

This is a wonderful way for you to experience the healing
benefits of
Reiki for yourself and to gain in confidence flowing the energy. When
you give yourself some Reiki every day, you’ll notice how it helps you
to relax and cope with even the busiest life. You may notice detoxing,
clearing effects, and you’ll start to feel lighter, clearer and
happier. You may find that you reassess things that you were stressing
and worrying about, and that you find the strength to make any changes
that are good, healthy and positive for you. This process of change may
be a little ‘bumpy’ at times, but well worth it as your life moves in
ever more positive directions.

Other delightful benefits are that you’ll notice your intuition sharpening and you may well see, hear, feel, and experience scents or tastes more intensely. Reiki brings out the best in you, develops your creativity, intensifies your capabilities and helps you to discover and follow your path in life. 

What people are saying about Reiki I

“It was lovely to work with Susanna, I
felt at ease and comfortable with her. The information and advice was
completely useful and comprehensive. The attunement process was
wonderful and I felt it working immediately! It was a fabulous
experience seeing and feeling the effects of a healing on a fellow
student. I feel that I have gained so much already from Reiki I and I
am looking forward to seeing that develop tomorrow when I attend the
Reiki II! I intend to use Reiki not only in my personal life, but to
set up as a practitioner, it feels like I have ‘come home’.”

Lucy Reid, Homemaker and Doll Maker

“Really lovely style, informal but very
informative. I liked the small group dynamic. Would definitely attend
further courses with you! I didn’t expect such powerful experiences!”

Beverley Heath, Complementary Therapist

“I had an amazing experience with Susanna
on a one to one course. This was more than a Reiki I course; I was able
to ask a lot of questions and got great answers. Susanna is very
knowledgeable in many other areas as well, not only Reiki! I will
definitely come back to Reiki II course, very soon!!”

Sara Monteiro, York

“I feel the course has opened the door to
a new way of living and of seeing others. The day felt relaxed, free
and organic. We were gently guided through but never felt rushed or
unable to ask questions. The attunement was a beautiful experience.
Thank you.”

Laura Neale, Teacher of English as a Foreign Language

“It was a very powerful day. It was a
very relaxing and safe environment to experience something powerful,
different and life changing. Thank you!”

Nicky Esders, York

“We both thoroughly enjoyed the day with
you and thought the course was very well presented and organised. It is
only afterwards that you realise how much you have learnt. I always
find it takes a few days or weeks to assimilate everything from a good
course, so this was definitely a good course!”

Veronica Burningham

“Very much enjoyed the relaxed blend of
theory and
practice. Susanna relaxed me from the moment I entered the building and
this continued throughout the day. Breaks were well spaced and the
group was enabled to ‘gel’ easily, comfortably and with good humour.”

Malcolm Freemantle, Life Coach/Consultant

“Fantastic experience – I’m so glad I

Nicola Percival, Senior Sustainability Manager, Bovis Lend Lease, Manchester

“Really great course – informative,
insightful and
interesting. Feel I really made a paradigm shift. REALLY looking
forward to Reiki II.”

Sarah Butler

“A great introduction to Reiki, about
which I knew
nothing before! It covered both the origins of Reiki and the practical
work / application of Reiki; the group work was excellent. I look
forward to using Reiki in my daily life.”

Paul Hewitt, Architect

“I found the training excellent, enjoyed
the practice
in the afternoon and how relaxed the environment was. Gave me many
thoughts for the future.”

“I feel as though I really want to take
this forward.
I don’t know yet how this will present itself, but I’m sure the
Universe will guide me. Thank you Susanna for your guidance today.”

Margaret Milligan

“Practice was very helpful and useful to
hear each other’s views. I felt it was important to ‘feel’ the energy.”

Terry Simmons

“The course very much complemented my
beliefs and
confirmed aspects to my attitude and behaviour that I need to address
in more detail.

It was wonderful to work with and learn
from such a
positive person as Susanna, who has the knowledge, humility and ability
required in order to help one get the best out of the training; it was
easy to learn with such a person.

Thank you also for making us feel so much
at home and relaxed. A wonderful atmosphere to learn in.”

John Messer

“This is one of the best ‘life’ courses I
have attended and I
will continue to practice Reiki in my everyday life. I shall probably
book up for Reiki II. Reiki opened up and helped heal blocked

Reiki II!”

made my day / week /month. Thank
you. All of it was useful.”

Karen Dobson, Manager, American Express, Brighton

“Highly recommended. A valuable day. Very
relaxing. Looking forward to
practicing and sharing the benefits of this healing. I’ll be back for
Reiki II also. Think its very important to understand more about energy
and the flows we all have. I’ll be using Reiki when I go on to practice
other therapies and massage. Looking forward to experimenting and
exploring this when leave and discuss the changes later. Thank you.
Very positive day.”

Fiona Grange, Bar tender in Café/Bar/Art Gallery

well, open discussion, will
do Reiki II in the near future.”

M Trouard-Riolle, Lawyer, Brighton

“Great course. Very enjoyable. Definitely
feel calmer and much more
grounded – will use this in voice teaching work – particularly in terms
of being aware of energy flow. Will definitely use it for myself and my
friends – look forward to experimenting. Also as an actor I think there
is something relevant in free flow of energy and being aware of energy
flow. Will experiment with that in my job next week.”

Jules Craig, Actor/Voice Teacher

“I really related to the teaching on what
we give
to others and how it affects the treatment we receive. I am a nurse and
may use some of the skills I have learned today to protect and care for
myself. I will also use Reiki to make the little 7 week baby in my
tummy grow and flourish.”

Nikki Jones, Cancer Specialist Nurse, Worthing

techniques! Also researching and practicing more “

training courses. Going home feeling energized, enthusiastic and
already wanting more!”

Sally Calam, CMB Colour Consultant

“Most useful was learning the basic
principles of Reiki in the one
session and having the opportunity to practice those techniques whilst
they are still fresh in the memory. I would have no hesitation in
recommending this course to others. The techniques learned will be
applied at home for self, at work for

material was presented in a straightforward, easily understood and
above all, a fun way. A very instructive and enjoyable experience.

“It has been around 5/6 weeks since my
level 1 Reiki attunement. It has
been an amazing time. I used to control and keep a tight grip on my
emotions. I have been incredibly emotional since. I have felt very
happy, very grateful, very sad, very angry. I know this is a part of my
healing and it has increased my faith. Life is good. I can cope. I have
got my spirit back. Life is getting and will keep getting
