Reiki Training and Dates for 2017

Reiki training Anne-Marie

Welcome to Anne-Marie Carratu, owner of Reiki Light, offering Reiki training courses through Quest.

Courses are available using the original Usui Shiki Ryoho teachings and Karuna Reiki teachings.

Anne-Marie is one of a handful of Reiki Master Teachers in the UK teaching to National Occupational Standards for Reiki and as such, Reiki Light is able to offer students the opportunity to take an approved course enabling them to have CNHC recognition and work within the NHS and other medical establishments.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a complementary therapy, founded by Mikao Usui in Japan, in the early part of the 20th century.  Reiki, pronounced ‘ray-key’, is a gentle and effective system of healing which activates the body’s own natural ability to heal itself.  Reiki can benefit everyone, from young babies to adults and is a safe, non-invasive treatment.  The name Reiki originates from the Japanese words ‘rei’ meaning ‘universal’ and ‘ki’ meaning ‘energy’.  This universal energy is channeled through the practitioner to the recipient and works on all levels of the mind, body, emotion and spirit, allowing for total harmony and balance to be restored.

Reiki is now widely practiced and taught within the UK and is being recognised as an extremely effective healing system.  It is currently under voluntary regulation too, which makes it a professional modality to learn.

Reiki Training Courses

Anyone can learn this wonderful healing therapy as Reiki includes everyone, from all backgrounds and all religions.  Usui Sensei’s teachings are very much about teaching people how to heal themselves, spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically.  His motto “Unity of self through harmony and balance” was written on a plaque on the wall of his training centre in Tokyo.

There are three main levels to Usui’s teachings and each level teaches you how to integrate Reiki into your life.

Reiki One – First Degree (Shoden)

Reiki One is a two day course based very much on self-healing.  You will receive four Reiki attunements, over the two days.  The attunement process allows you to be opened and aligned to the Reiki energy, enabling you to begin to be able to channel it through your hands.

Your Investment:  £200

Reiki Two – Second Degree (Okuden)

Reiki Two is also a two day course, based on the student becoming a professional practitioner, healing others and well as continuing to self heal.  Two further attunements are received on this course.  Case studies for the student’s benefit will be required as part of this course.  Only those students who have taken a Reiki one course can learn this next level and there must be a minimum of three months between courses.

Your Investment:  £300

Reiki Two – Full 9 month Practitioner Degree (Okuden)

Students who wish to become a Reiki Practitioner, work within the NHS or who would like to receive the CNHC quality mark, may now take a more professional Reiki Practitioner Course with me, approved by the UK Reiki Federation.  This course is taught to National Occupational Standards for Reiki, finalised in 2009.

In addition to taking the Reiki One and Reiki Two courses, students will be required to carry out further study and learning over a 9 month period.  Providing all the work is completed by this time, students will receive a certificate which will entitle them to join the CNHC immediately, via a professional association e.g the UK Reiki Federation.

Your Investment:  £700 (payable in installments)

Reiki Three – Third Degree (Shinpiden)

Reiki Master is an ongoing learning experience and a journey that requires a lot of internal work and focus.  There is also extensive practice needed in using the Reiki energy.  Acceptance onto this level of Reiki is by interview only, as the prospective student has to be ready to receive these teachings.  Only those students who have taken Reiki One and Reiki Two courses can apply and there must be a minimum of a year between courses.

Your Investment: £500

Karuna Reiki Master Courses

Karuna Reiki was developed by William Rand, who founded The International Centre for Reiki Training in the USA.  It evolved from Usui and Tibetan Reiki and is only open to existing Reiki Masters to learn.  It is felt that only those using Master energies can facilitate this powerful Reiki energy.

Karuna Reiki offers many more symbols for the Reiki Master to use and enhances healing as a result.  It can be used alongside Usui Reiki, as they complement each other.  The course takes three days and covers the first and second levels of Karuna too.  There must be a minimum of year between courses.

Your Investment: POA

All students wishing to receive Reiki training will be offered full mentorship throughout their learning period and for as long as they may wish to receive it afterwards.

About Anne-Marie

I am a Reiki Master Teacher who feels absolutely passionate about Reiki, both as a practitioner and as a teacher.  My own Reiki training has been very extensive and I feel honoured to be part of the worldwide Reiki community.  I am also an Advanced Theta Healing Practitioner, have Diplomas in Anatomy & Physiology, Holistic Massage and a City & Guilds Teaching Qualification.

My own personal growth and development have accelerated beyond my wildest dreams since my first Reiki treatment and even more so since my own Reiki Master attunements.  As a result, I feel constantly inspired to demonstrate to other people just how wonderful learning and experiencing Reiki is.

As a professional therapist, I am a member of and work for the UK Reiki Federation and have chosen to adopt their Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.  I am also a member of the Complementary and Natural Health Council (the UK regulatory body), the Complementary Therapists Association, the Federation of Holistic Therapists and the General Regulatory Council for Complementary Therapists.

I very much look forward to meeting and teaching you Reiki so that your own healing journey can begin.
