USUI REIKI is taught at three levels
1st degree SHODEN – working in the field of energy
The individual is initiated into Reiki and they become a channel for life. They can use this for self-treatment and for treating others.
In Usui Reiki the student receives four Attunements for their 1st degree.
2nd degree OKU DEN – bringing in and transmitting the essence of the Energy
This involves the use of ancient symbols, which increase the energy flow and enable the practitioner to send a treatment to someone who is not physically present.
In Usui Reiki there is one attunement for the 2nd degree & this connects the student to the energies of the symbols, which can then be used for the self & other, for the highest good
Mastery DO SHU – teaching
A traditional Teaching Master has undertaken extensive training in the original traditions of Reiki with an elder Master and has been empowered to teach Reiki by the process of initiation
In USUI REIKI there is one attunement for the Masters Degree. The purpose of this initiation is to attune students to the energies in such a way to allow them to teach Reiki to others
In TIBETAN REIKI there is also one attunement with different symbols
JAPANESE REIKI works by intention & there are no symbols to learn. A student can therefore be attuned to the level the Master believes they are ready for
