The first level of Reiki, also known as Shoden level, is the first of 3 levels in the Reiki system in
Traditional Japanese Reiki. Shoden or “Initiation/Initial Teachings” is the foundation for the
system of Reiki. Reiki originally was designed as a five-point system for our own spiritual
development. In this lineage you are brought back to the roots of traditional Reiki. The lineage
being Usui Reiki Ryoho.
In Shoden level, you will learn the history of Reiki and the roots of Traditional Reiki, Japanese
Esoteric Philosophy, and hands-on practice as well as connecting with the precepts of Reiki. By
receiving the rituals of attunement and reiju (“spiritual blessing”), you will have direct contact
with the mystery of Reiki yourself. This course focuses on reconnecting with our own golden
light or divinity, creating a strong connection with that, building balance within ourselves and a
bank of experiences to grow from. It is through these practices that we learn to not ‘do’ Reiki,
but to embody Reiki in our every day to day lives. It is through growing these roots and
reconnecting with ourselves that we create our own foundation of light to move forward with in
our spiritual journeys.
Any lineage of Reiki can re-experience Reiki in this lineage if you are already a Level 1
practitioner or higher. Each student will walk away with their own Shoden manual that they can
In the final class of this training, each student will receive certifications in the Shoden Level/1 st
Degree of traditional Usui Reiki Ryoho lineage which enables them to practice this system with
themselves and among others.
