Reiki is one of the most empowering things you’ll ever learn for yourself

It is simple to learn but it is an amazingly powerful healing technique for calming and re-vitalising your mind, body and spirit, for relieving stress and pain, for increasing your well-being and for bringing deeper insight, healing and balance to yourself, your family and friends. You will learn how to transform your own energy for self-healing and growth.

Reiki level 1 is the start of a beautiful relationship – a relationship that will only ever guide you, support you and continue to invite you to go deeper.

This is a wonderful opportunity to get to know yourself on a deeper level and become aware of how your body is continually speaking to you. All you have to do is slow down and listen which is where the self practice comes in!

Experience the true magic of receiving a reiki level 1 reju (initiation / attunement / blessing)

Receiving a reiki initiation is a gift as it invites you to come into harmony with yourself as it unlocks your innate power to heal yourself. The word attunement means being or bringing into harmony, feeling of being at ‘one’ and initiation means ‘an occasion when someone is first introduced to an activity or skill’. So the Reiki attunement / initiation is an opportunity for us to begin afresh.

Self reiki is one of the most important activities you can do that will help you remember your spirit.

What you will learn during Reiki 1

After reiki level 1 you’ll have the ability to give yourself a mini-Reiki session every day, contributing to your own healing.

You’ll also be able to use Reiki to treat family & friends and pets with the Reiki. Reiki 1 does not qualify you to practice reiki professionally. This is a Level 1 course so the focus is on healing ourselves first.

The weekend provides a strong foundation for your reiki self practice on which you can build after the course (and add to if you choose to attend Reiki  Level 2 or Reiki Level 3 further on your path).

We start practicing reiki straight after the attunement so you have plenty of time to experience reiki during the course so your confidence and practice can grow over the weekend. As a result, you’ll be able to practice Reiki on yourself after just the first class.

Your own personal and unique experience of reiki is what matters most.

The two days are tailored to the energy of the group and there is plenty of time for discussion or questions as they arise.

Through theory, one on one reiki and self practice you will:

  • Learn what reiki is & how to explain it to others
  • Begin to understand how reiki works with our entire system on all levels
  • Experience the reiki level 1 attunement which re-awakens your innate self healing ability
  • Explore the history of Reiki & Usui’s deeper teachings
  • Discuss the reiki principles & how they are the foundation of the System of Reiki
  • Explore the energetic system: 7 main chakras, endocrine system, aura, physcial organs, meridian system etc (what they relate to, corresponding emotions & how we can use them to get to know ourselves more)
  • Practice scanning and sensing the chakras / energy
  • Be shown and conduct mental and emotional clearances
  • Practice 2 self treatments using a variety of hand positions so you can see the flexibility of your practice
  • Learn hand positions for treating family & friends (chair treatments & plinth treatments)
  • Explore techniques to maintain your centre & balance in everyday life (grounding etc)
  • Bring reiki into all areas of your life
  • Give and receive a full reiki treatment.

You will also receive:

  • A comprehensive reiki level 1 manual;
  • Your Reiki Level 1 Certificate;
  • A MP3 to guide you through your reiki self practice;
  • Continued support from me;

A two hour follow up session approximately three weeks after the course is provided for continued support in your Reiki practice (this is included in the price). It is a space to answer any questions, revise techniques and to give and receive a reiki treatment.

I offer continued support for reiki students through Reiki Shares, Reiki Days and other events where you can deepen your reiki self practice, hone your reiki skills and meet other reiki students & practitioners.

For those who wish to go deeper into their self practice and healing, I offer reiki mentoring. These sessions are an opportunity to reflect on your relationship with reiki. Reiki awakens us to our true nature, which means we are letting go of the layers of patterns, behaviours and ways of being that are no longer needed.

Sometimes, it nice to have guidance along the way to help you navigate this new territory. The sessions are to help you strengthen your connection to your inner guidance and muscle so you can learn how to access even more the wisdom within.

What are the benefits in learning Reiki?

It connects you with your own innate self healing ability.
The most beautiful thing is it helps you in being more of ‘you’ i.e. you feel more like yourself.
An empowering way to take care of yourself, enabling you to connect with your inner wisdom and find true health.
Supports you to become more grounded and centred so you can learn to ride the ‘waves’ of life in a different way and trust life.
If you are sensitive person (empathetic) reiki can support you in managing your own energy levels rather than feeling drained, ‘like a sponge’ or overwhelmed by all that is going on within them and in their outer world. It’s like a salve for your sensitive nervous system!
Your daily self practice helps to be feel calmer, more aligned, balanced, connected and self love. Reiki meets you exactly where you are at, and opens the doorway to the medicine you most need at that time.
You’ll have this healing practice for the rest of your life and Reiki can become a significant source of inner support in your daily life. The magic is the more you use it, the stronger it is – just like any muscle you exercise!
Supports you to be more present and therefore let go of worries and invite in calmness and peace.
Can help you to develop more compassion to yourself and others as you open your heart to the world around you
Guides you to recognise fear for what it is, listen to it’s wisdom and your inner guidance so you can move through it with strength.
Everyone is intuitive; reiki helps you to awaken and strengthen your own intuition so we can make decisions and choices that are more aligned with your truth, your life and your purpose.
Helps you to sleep better and feel more at peace.

What Students Say About Reiki Level 1

Like many I was finding it difficult to cope with the challenges life throws at us and wanted something more than meditation to help me relax and hopefully the ability to able to heal myself. Reiki has been absolutely amazing in allowing me to sit and connect with myself on a whole new level. Roseleen is a great teacher and very down to earth and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to explore or expand on their spiritual journey. Kesley

Roseleen is an excellent teacher. She is really grounded and really cares about reiki. I really enjoyed her down to earthness as I was worried it would all be a bit out of my reach. In the warm, friendly atmosphere we were all given the opportunity to develop at our own pace and the freedom to experience the magic of energy in our own way. This is a fantastic workshop suitable for anyone interested in Reiki or in simply getting to know themselves better. Claire

Roseleen is an experienced and caring teacher who led a thoughtful, practical introduction to reiki. the workshop was very well-organized and especially welcoming for beginners. the information and support provided before and after the weekend were added bonuses. anyone looking to explore energy work would benefit from studying with roseleen Patricia

Presence, Peace, Clarity, Alignment Await You

Is this course for you?

Simply, yes –  reiki is for everyone. Reiki is something anyone can learn and use, there is no special ability or prior training required.

Reiki is perfect for people who are wishing to support themselves through life, to manage transitions and who are interested in stress management, self healing and personal growth, with the added benefit of leaning how to channel healing energy to help others, too.

The ability to channel Reiki is then with you for life and the more you work with it, the more you will be amazed at its awe-inspiring power. Everyone is welcome to learn – no prior experience or training is needed, just an open and inquiring mind and the time and commitment to continue practising the techniques.

All of my classes are designed so that anyone can benefit from the material presented. The class material is helpful for professionals such as nurses, massage therapists, physicians, or “regular people” who wish to use Reiki for spiritual growth, or to help family, friends and for the student’s self-healing.

Finding the Right Reiki Level 1 Course for You

When you have decided to start your Reiki journey it is important that you choose a teacher that is right for you. Therefore I offer potential students a discounted Reiki treatment to discuss my approach so you can decide whether the timing is right for your adventure with Reiki to begin.

If you are interested in the course but have never had a reiki treatment before, I would advise having at least 1 treatment before the course so you can experience the benefits of reiki for yourself.

Please contact me for more information; call 086 889 8433 or email

I have done Level 1 before but I am feeling like I would like to repeat it with you, can I do that?

Of course you can! You can attend the 2 day course at the refresher rate. No two reiki teachers are the same, even if they come from the same lineage as every teacher will teach Reiki based on their own personal experience so there is always benefit from learning from different teachers and lineages.

There are many reasons why students come and repeat reiki level 1. I often have students coming to repeat that have either trained under another lineage or have done the training years ago and are wanting a refresh. Then there are those who are maybe interested in teaching reiki and would like the experience of seeing how others teach.  You are not being ‘re-attuned’ as you always have reiki within you but the initiation attunement will give you a consciousness boost where ever you are at, so it will only build on your existing foundation.

Everyday I choose healing for my Heart, Mind, Body, and Spirit.

Your Reiki Teacher

I have been teaching reiki since 2009 and my love affair with it began way before then. No matter what else I have trained in, I always come back to the beauty and simplicity in Reiki.

How I teach reiki now is different than 2009. If if didn’t change, then I am not growing as an individual or a teacher. As I grow in my own personal experience, I continue to deepen my knowledge, understanding and experience through additional trainings. Reiki continues to guide and teach me even after all these years.

My teaching style

My teaching is grounded, practical with plenty of emphasis on theory and developing your own personal practical experience.

My wish for you is that you have your own personal experience of Reiki and be open to receiving the healing that is here for you in a supported and safe space. Above all, I invite you to experience the spark, feeling of your true self beneath all the ‘stuff’ that life holds – peace, calm, compassion, silence, stillness and happiness.

This weekend is an invitation to remember that true connection within, to be gentle with yourself during and after the course as you self practice. Above all it’s a practice – we get to learn and meet ourselves each day as if for the first time.

First it’s an intention, then a behaviour, then a habit, then a practice, then a second nature, then it is simple who you are ~ Brendan Burchard
