LEARNING REIKI


Wendy Vaughan

Reiki Master & Teacher

Advanced Equine Reiki Practitioner

I have been working with Reiki for over 15 years now and have experienced wonderful changes in my life and others' lives.

My passion is helping people and animals through Reiki and teaching those that are interested so that they may start their own Reiki journey.



Reiki is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy, an energy which is all around us.   Reiki is the name given to a system of energy healing which was developed by Dr Mikao Usui based on many years of study, research and meditation.     

There is no belief system attached to Reiki so anyone can receive or learn to give a Reiki treatment, the only prerequisite is the desire to heal and be healed.  “Usui Reiki” is Reiki in its simplest form, as taught by Dr Mikao Usui, without the addition of other ideas or beliefs that are sometimes confused with Reiki.

My aim is to ensure that you leave my courses having enjoyed your Reiki experience, fully understood the course material and are confident to use your Reiki going forward.

I specialise in teaching Reiki with a tailored approach based on participants' current level of understanding and experience, focused on their individual objectives.   My aim is to 'demystify' Reiki  for my clients, making it accessible and giving you the confidence to work with Reiki at whatever level you aspire to.



Reiki Courses

Reiki 1st Degree - Shoden - Introduction to Reiki
The first level is called Shoden, also known as First Degree Reiki, Reiki Level I or just Reiki I.  The background and history of Reiki are explained along with the main concepts and Reiki Precepts.  Student receives empowerments/attunements to introduce them to Reiki energy and help then to ‘tune in’ to the energy, and are taught various methods for working with Reiki on themselves and others. 
Shoden is taught by a combination of pre-reading and home practice (via a course manual), and either a one-day face to face teaching day, or a programme of 4 evenings over a month and ongoing use of audio CDs (from Reiki Evolutions).
Post course support is offered through ongoing telephone and email contact and free attendance at Reiki Practice Sessions for 3 months after the course date.

Reiki 2nd Degree - Okuden  - Practitioner Level
The second level is called Okuden, also known as Second Degree Reiki, Reiki Level II or just Reiki II.  It is sometimes also referred to as the Practitioner Level. 
Students receive further empowerments/attunements and are taught the use of 3 Reiki symbols which further develop the students understanding and use of Reiki. 
Okuden is taught by a combination of pre-reading and home practice (via a course manual), a one-day face to face teaching day, or a programme of 4 evenings over a month, and ongoing use of audio CDs (from Reiki Evolutions), 
Post course support is offered through ongoing telephone and email contact and free attendance at Reiki Practice Sessions for 6 months after the course date.

Reiki 3rd Degree - Shinpiden- Master & Teacher Level
The second level is called Shinpiden, also known as Third Degree Reiki, Reiki Level III or just Reiki III.  It is the Master/Teacher Level, sometimes noted as RMT.
Students receive further empowerments/attunements at master level, deepening their connection to Reiki and further enhancing their intent and intuition.  This course also focuses on the role of Reiki teacher, empowering and teaching others both through Western and original Japanese approaches.
Shinpiden is taught by a combination of pre-reading and home practice (via a course manual, CDs and a DVD), and a two-day face to face weekend.
Post course support is offered through ongoing telephone and email contact and free attendance at Reiki Practice Sessions for 6 months after the course date.

Reiki Master 1-Day Course
This course is offered for those who with to continue their personal journey with Reiki, deepen their connection to Reiki, but who have no desire to teach others.

Courses will be held in an informal, relaxed manner, at my home near Trowbridge, Wiltshire.



Equine Reiki / Reiki With Animals 

Introduction to Reiki with Animals
Based on Shoden, this course focuses on using Reiki with our pets/animals.  
Students will receive empowerments and hands on practice of using Reiki with horses (although the principles taught are applicable to all animals).  There may be the opportunity to practice on some dogs and the yard cats on the day - your own dogs are welcome if they are well behaved.
This course is open to anyone who has already completed a Reiki Level I course, or can be taken in conjunction with my Shoden courses as above.
Post course support is offered through ongoing telephone and email contact and free attendance at Reiki Practice Sessions for 3 months after the course date.

Advanced Reiki with Animals    
Based on Okuden,this course focuses on treating animals with Reiki.
Students will receive empowerments and hands on practice of treating horses with Reiki. 
(The principles taught are applicable to all animals).   There may be the opportunity to practice with some dogs and the yard cats on the day - your own dogs are welcome if they are well behaved. 
This course is open to anyone who has already completed a Reiki Level II course, or can be taken in conjunction with my Okuden courses as above.
Post course support is offered through ongoing telephone and email contact and free attendance at Reiki Practice Sessions for 6 months after the course date.
Shadow days working with me treating horses with Reiki can be arranged for Reiki II graduates.



Animal courses will be held at the stunning facilities at 
in Seend, near Melksham, Wiltshire.  




Equestrian Heights is a state of the art equestrian facility, mostly under-cover, with the benefit of a heated, comfortable room where you will receive your attunements and a solarium/heated bay for the horses to enjoy whilst receiving their treatments in the colder months.  In the summer months, there is a lovely gazebo and various seating areas to enjoy.

Whatever the weather, please come suitably dressed for working with horses, in particular, suitable footwear is required.


WHY HORSES?
Horses are my passion, my therapy business is equine based and my experience, which I hope to share with you, is mainly with horses.
However, this is not the only reason!  
Horses are very easy to work with when learning Reiki.  They are very sensitive to Reiki, often give loads of feedback, generally are trained to stand still and are easy to demonstrate on as they are big enough to show you clearly what to do!


Reiki Practice / Reiki "Share" Sessions
3-hour informal sessions, open to all graduates of my Reiki courses (also open to other Reiki graduates by individual arrangement - please feel free to get in touch!).
An opportunity to practice your Reiki and be practiced on!
A forum to ask questions, discuss issues and share experiences.



Individual Programmes
Programmes can be individually tailored to suit specific requirements.
You may have some previous Reiki training but want to clarify your understanding, or further your training.  You may have experience working on other healing / energy based disciplines and want to incorporate Reiki into your practice.
Whatever your individual needs I will aim to deliver the training you need to support you and help you be successful.

I hadn't even heard of Reiki until I met Wendy! 
She asked if she could treat my horse with Reiki one day (whilst on chiropractic duties) and I was amazed at the difference when I rode the next day. 
She later treated me and it helped enormously. Some people later suggested I did a Reiki course, but when I investigated it they all sounded a bit airy-fairy for me. Wendy offered to give me some instruction and gave me some reading to do. We then met up and she discussed various aspects with me in a thoughtful but nonsense free way, followed by the attunements. We met again so I could play with what she had taught me on some horses unknown to me - it was amazing! 
Wendy knew I would struggle to believe what I felt if it had been my horses as I know too much about them, so by going to horses she knew the history of, which I did not, she could explain the things I noticed and felt, which gave me confidence in my new found ability! 
I now use Reiki on an almost daily basis, and am eternally grateful to Wendy for her training. I would highly recommend her thoughtful and grounded approach to a fabulous life tool.
