"The process of attunement is what sets Reiki apart from every other laying on of hands or touch healing. The attunement is not a treatment, it creates the healer. From this point on, the person who has received the attunement is a Reiki practitioner." Diane Stein, author "Essential Reiki".
Level I Course
Level I courses are for adults and accompanied children from 10 years old. If you're in lockdown, some of the Course is with videophone / live online Zoom meeting; otherwise, much of the courses are in the garden keeping the recommended social distancing protocols and wearing a mask at times. If you run a stressful business, hair salon or spa facility, consider including Reiki for your staff to calm and increase productivity. Your training can start virtually straight away: contact me with your queries and availability. The world needs more healing and healers right now!
After attending Reiki First Degree, also called Reiki I, and sufficient self-practice, expect to confidently give reiki to yourself, family, friends and pets to promote self-healing and balance your chakras. Typically, Reiki I promotes physical changes.
You will be able to use Reiki on yourself straight after this course.
Approximately 8-10 hours, depending on attendees. If you're in lockdown, this can be spread over three 2-hour Zoom online/ videophone calls, with an in-person meeting when it's safe to do so.
I prefer to teach over two consecutive days to see and hear how you are after your reiki attunement, before the follow-up reiki experiences the following day. Everyone needs time to absorb and adjust to Reiki's high vibrational energies as well as practice..
Accommodation may be available - scroll down for prices.
After the Course, follow up includes email / phone support and Healing Attunements if required in the event of a personal crisis within the following 21 days. You'll be invited to occasional Reiki events and shares, where you can meet other reiki friends and relax with guided Reiki meditations and a Holy Fire Experience before we exchange reiki with each other in a small group (10 euros). After your attunement, you can still receive Reiki treatments as well as your self-treatments.

I had an amazing experience the past two days, a lot of different physical feelings and emotional feelings, some of them I had never experienced before. I was very tense and worried before I came for the first session, but I am now so glad that I went through this process; I have a feeling of relief (huge relief) inside of me but also peace, joy, happiness and contentment. I hope to hold these feelings with me always. Thank you for much Kathy for making this experience as gentle and smooth as possible, it has made all the difference, I guess, and thank-you for sharing this gift." Pauline, after Reiki I attunements, January 2018.
Kathy, thank you so much for this amazing day..."
Some weeks later: "This is just to let you know that everything is ok on my side. I'm back to work now and Reiki is working its magic there as well, as you told me it would, and it feels great... It is very interesting, I have a lot of new sensations in my hands and within my body. I can feel more." Paula, Levels I and II, 2018.
After spending time with Kathy and teaching me reiki course 1, I have kept practising self healing everyday and I'm learning more and more about the power of reiki. For 15 years I've had a very self destructive daily habit that, as much as I tried over and over again, I kept on failing to stop the repetitive behaviour. During my 21-day self healing, I've found the strength to just stop! I can't tell you how much of a miracle it feels to me. It has and will continue to make a positive difference in all areas of my life. And I'm so so thankful to you Kathy - you are a warm, caring, shining light.Chrissie, 2017. (After an attunement, there is a 21-day period of self-Reiki at home to fully absorb at every auric layer.)

Kathy is a wonderful reiki practitioner and it was a real joy to do the reiki course with her. She is patient, passionate and has a beautiful sense of calm when teaching. Since completing the course, I have felt a profound shift within the way I approach life. I feel my old unhelpful habits are loosening and that there is a new path opening up in front of me. I would strongly recommend studying with Kathy." Kathryn,, Drama Teacher, Usui/Holy Fire II Reiki, Level II Practitioner Course, 2018.
