Okuden is the Japanese word for ‘Inner Teachings’

This course is suitable for those who have completed Japanese Reiki Shoden R1 and wish deepen their understanding of Reiki and their practice.

Anyone advancing to this level should wait an appropriate length of time (usually 3 months) to ensure that a solid energetic foundation has been formed from the practices taught during the Shoden course.

Okuden means inner teachings, so within this level you will work towards deepening your understanding of earth energy and heavenly energy (the original energy system of Reiki). Understanding and working with both energies are the foundations to becoming fully integrated with Reiki.

This is done by learning and practising shirushi (Japanese for symbols) and jumon (Japanese for mantras). Working with these symbols and mantras internally by visualising and chanting will help you with your own energy levels and sensitivity to Reiki energy. They will also help you towards becoming one with the universal life force energy, a deeper knowing that we are all truly connected to that life force.

Another element of working this way and knowing that energetic connection we have with the universe means you will gain a much deeper understanding of distant healing treatments.

There are many other techniques that are taught over the two days that will aid you further with your spiritual growth.

The course itself is over two days and will provide you with:-

  • Three Japanese Jumon and Shirushi their meanings and usage
  • The concept of oneness and the ability to help others distantly
  • Three attunements
  • Energy meditations to delve deeper into the Reiki energy
