Course overview

Mikao Usui Reiki preceptsMikao Usui Reiki preceptsThe Okuden Level II course builds on the foundations of the Shoden Level I course. After completing the first Level of the system of Reiki, Shoden, the student must practice on him or herself.

After some period of time an Okuden student will have achieved a new level of confidence and balance. At this point, which is unique to each student, it will become time to begin working on the self with a new level of energy – this new level of energy is the essence of Okuden.

Through Okuden, the student develops many of the skills taught in Shoden, deepening and expanding the student’s understanding of Mikao Usui’s teachings, and thus enriching his or her practice.

Okuden is a Japanese word meaning ‘Hidden’ or ‘Inner Teachings’, and traditionally contains two separate parts known as Zenki (Japanese: First Part) and Koki (Japanese: Second Part). Both of these parts are taught within One World Reiki’s Okuden teachings.

During the course we review the four elements of traditional Japanese Reiki practise: Gokai (Philosophical Precepts) for developing spiritual and mental focus, the student’s emphasis continues to be placed on developing the spiritual and mental connection using the Five Precepts; Kokyu Ho (breathing techniques and meditation), Tenohira (hands-on healing, the physical practice on the self continues. Working on others for the purpose of healing takes on a professional edge. The Okuden manual includes greater detail in how to work professionally as a Professional Practitioner), and Reiju (receiving a spiritual blessing, or ‘attunement’ from one’s teacher). Three Reiju and/or attunements take the student’s energetic connection a step further.

Okuden students are also introduced to the Fifth Element: Jumon (mantras) and Shirushi (symbols). Three of the four mantras and symbols are taught, along with their descriptions and uses. The symbols are a unique and powerful aspect of the Okuden teachings; the use of them in treatment or meditation.

Throughout the course, Okuden Practitioners/Students are also introduced to many more authentic and original traditional Japanese Reiki techniques as taught within the Okuden Level II teachings within the Usui Reiki Ryoho, including: Hatsurei Ho (a method for generating greater amounts of spiritual energy and strengthening one’s Reiki), Enkaku Chiryo Ho (remote/distance healing method), Byosen Reikan Ho (sensing energetic imbalances before illness with the hands using sacred intuition) and Reiji Ho (a method of being guided by spirit).

After completion of Okuden Level II course students will be, with practice, fully qualified to work as professional Usui Reiki Ryoho Therapists/Practitioners, should they choose to do so. For those who are interested in working professionally, we will cover the practicalities and ethics of starting up and maintaining a therapeutic practise.

An extensive course manual is provided for each student, as well as a professional certificate of completion. After the course support Reiki Practice groups are also provided for all students, should the need arise. One World Reiki host regular Reiki Practice groups, where Practitioners of all Levels of proficiency, Shoden, Okuden and Shinpiden, may come to exchange treatments and receive Reiju; all Students/Practitioners are encouraged to attend. Private consultations are also available.

The course is a combination or lecture, discussion and experience.
