reiki level 1 - beginners
What is Reiki?
Reiki is a health-promoting, non-invasive practice that eases discomfort and helps you to function better and regain your balance. Reiki is Universal life force and energy of the highest vibrations - the fundamental energy that creates and sustains the Universe. (More about what Reiki is, click here).
Many people are confused with the term Reiki, as the explanation and interpretation can vary among practitioners. We understand it from two all-encompassing perspectives here with Shin - Reiki as an energy and Reiki as a system. Reiki as an energy hails from deep ancient roots, but Reiki as a system is fairly modern, spanning about a 100 years of teachings in its lineage. You will learn and understand both Reiki as an energy and as a system in this workshop.
Who is this Workshop for?
This foundational workshop is perfect for anyone who wish to learn a self-care practice in an easy and practical way, increase their vitality, promote health, reduce stress and connect better with themselves. You do not need any specific background or beliefs, special 'skills' or knowledge to learn how to practise Reiki - there is no pre-requisite.
Why Should I Learn Reiki?
Reiki is a spiritual practice, and is one of the most practical ways of healing and so simple to use that it is perfect for anyone who is not familiar with any modalities of natural or traditional healing or has found little improvements to their overall state with conventional medicine. It can be a wonderful starting point to begin to understand other methods along your journey, whether you continue to use Reiki as your healing tool or not. Welcoming and embracing the practice of Reiki in your life is a wonderful step to bring balance back into your life, in all aspects. You will be able to heal yourself and also your loved ones after this workshop, which in itself is also a great healing experience and a wonderful way to take your health to the next level!
What May I Expect in the Workshop?
While you are ensured that you will be taught and passed down the Reiki practice or Reiki healing system as a tradition, as originally taught in its purest form, the workshop is unique for its lively dose of holistic teachings from students' experiences, that they have inadvertently come across but never had any teacher explain the intricate relations between seemingly separate spiritual teachings.
You can and will activate Reiki in your hands with attunements/initiations from Reiki Master teacher Shin and after the course, you will be able to practise for life.
This 12-hour training workshop is very experiential with exercises, practice and sharing of techniques and ideas. The traditional Usui method is taught, in its pure and simple way, which requires no belief, religious bias or any sort of spiritual background. There will be plenty of time to ask questions and explore this practice for yourself.
During the class, we will explore what exactly is Reiki, how it heals disease and our internal systems. There will also be interactive sessions to practice giving Reiki treatments to get you comfortable with your newfound practice. You will also learn how to place your hands on different body positions smoothly for a client while taking care of your own body posture, which is of utmost importance and part of self-care. Key positions as passed down from medical Reiki practices will also be shared, as optional positions to add on.
Reiki 1 manual and materials are provided. The focus of the First Degree training is committed self-practice, which will bring balance to your life and support your development as a Reiki practitioner along your very own journey. You will be a certified Reiki First Degree practitioner upon graduation of the full 12 hours.

"All small workshops conducted in Tiny Home is unique and first since 2020 in the sense that we will be learning how to heal and operate directly from a home apartment, using not only the professional and formal Reiki bed, but also various common home furniture. This is most ideal for those who do not know how to translate your skills from idealised theories to customised home situations, especially suitable for those in caregiving roles, youth workers, social work, volunteers at homes, people with limited space in their apartments or those who simply do not have the luxury to conduct Reiki treatments in the most ideal way or space etc. I am excited to share with you a piece of the community's realism and practicality from the lay community itself. Professional Reiki treatment know-hows will also be fully covered in the workshop." - Shin
