Level 1 Reiki with Diane Ferguson

Level 1 Reiki with Diane Ferguson

Level 1 Reiki Training with Diane Ferguson

September 1, 2018 9:00-3:30 at URU Gulf Breeze Treehouse
Investment: $150

Level 1 is a practitioner's initiation into Reiki and is open to anyone. The focus during Level 1 is on opening the energy channels on a physical level, allowing the practitioner to connect to the universal life force energy, which flows through the crown of the head and down to the heart and hands.

The Reiki attunement is what makes Reiki unique to other forms of healing touch and energy work. This ceremony, called Reiju (Ray-joo) in Japanese, is performed by the Reiki Master and opens and expands the main energy channels of the student's body, allowing universal energy, also known as Qi/Chi/Ki, to flow more freely and deeply.

Because of this opening process, the attunement also does what Reiki is meant to do — clear blockages. As a result, this can create significant energy changes within the individual and many will undergo an intense period of self-growth.

The emphasis of this Level 1 training will be self-Reiki, encouraging students to focus on practicing Reiki on themselves, thereby working through their own obstacles. Many experience physical symptoms of energy in their palms after the first attunement — including tingling, coolness or heat. This course will also provide an overview of the history of Reiki, chakra study, Level 1 attunement, hand placements and self and group practice.

Diane Ferguson is an Usui Ryoho Reiki Level III Master Teacher who began her study of Reiki in 2014 and has been working with others in this healing modality since 2015. Diane believes that the power of Reiki is limitless and can be applied to nearly every facet of your life. Diane is also a yoga instructor, Certified Health Coach, retreat facilitator, and ordained Minister.

The focus of this form of Energy Medicine is based on the traditional Buddhist Master Usui Method, established in the 1930”s from the practices of Buddhist monks to systemize and download the harnessing of the life force. As a form of energy hygiene, upholding the sacred life force within you and around you, it encourages you to practice clarity as to assist in clearing, holding space for more Life, greater freedom, greater creativity to all as a form of empowerment in identifying as a Higher Self.

Reiki is an accessible and very approachable form of of energy medicine that is perfect for all beings in any field or responsibility they operate in, be it a parent, teacher, physical therapist, massage therapist, yoga teacher, social worker or uplifted human being!

Reiki is found in most hospitals as a valid addition to current and modern day medicines (not replacements) of healing in many parts of Asia and is beginning to be far more widely accepted here in the West, mutually making its way into hospitals, clinics, progressive therapies, yoga studios, schools and massage studios.

Based on the tradition of Master Usui, the Reiki program at Swan River Yoga is also unique in that it includes some of the healing energetic practices of the subtle body found in the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, along with the inspirations of numerous Energy Medicine healers that Michelle, the Director of the program, has encountered in the Energy practices of Bali, Mystical forms of Kabbalah, Pranic Healing and Psycho-therapy, Polarity Energy Medicine & Ayurveda.

The Reiki System works in 3 stages.

Level 1; Clear Thyself, Know Thyself. This is entirely for you. You will learn the history of Reiki and be given tools for personal daily use. You will not work with others at all. You will learn how to clear your inner and outer environments and become more sensitive to the energy around you.

You will learn to:
Cut Cords
Harmonize and feel your chakras
Clear Your Energy quickly
Dial into your Higher Self
Understand boundaries & Energy hygiene
Call on Spiritual Guides & access yours
Do a fire ceremony
Hold more life force within you
