The Course

No experience with any healing modalities is required
for this Level One Course, which is open to all individuals

The beginning of a spiritual journey, in Buddhism, is often referred to as entering the stream. This first level level, as the foundation for all of the Reiki courses, permanently opens you to receive the clearest quality of Spiritual Essence (Life Force Energy/Consciousness) available to you in the Universe.

Level One Reiki balances the Root or ‘Secret Place’ chakra and Crown or ‘Great Bliss’ chakra (as Crown & Third-Eye together) safely, to allow a higher current of ‘Heaven’s Force’ (as referred to in Taoism and TCM—Traditional Chinese Medicine) to enter your Crown and be distributed via your Heart chakra.

All of the other chakras are aligned in this process. Your  hands are also attuned to allow the transmission of this healing energy to others, and its redirection back into yourself to rebalance mind and body.

What we are talking about here is unblocking the flow of the current in the human nervous system that absorbs and redistributes both the energy pouring in to us via the Earth’s electromagnetic field above us and the energy we absorb from the Earth beneath us, in the same way that plants have both leaves and roots.

Excerpt from Kerrie’s Reiki 1 eBook Manual:

REIKI 1 COURSE for Your Exceptional Purpose

“In Western medicine, disease is seen to be caused by alien substances such as bacteria and viruses, with little responsibility on our part. The immune system is not understood as a state of mind. The healing systems of Asia and Persia have had greater insights into how our consciousness creates ill health and vitality.”


Yogacara Astrologer, Reiki Practitioner 1986, Reiki Teacher 1997, Award-Winning Author 2012, Flower Essence Therapist, Vegan since 1976, Buddhist.
