Shinpiden & Equine Reiki: Teacher Training - Course Outline

This four day course comprises two courses in one, including Shinpiden (Reiki Level 3) which
takes place over the first three days, and Equine Reiki: Teacher Training, which is optional.



Shinpiden is the Japanese word for 'mystery teachings'. This course is for Level II practitioners and
who would like to develop an Equine Reiki teaching practise or for those who would simply like to continue their personal journey, a journey that is ongoing long after you complete the Shinpiden course.

Self-empowerment is attained in Shinpiden through a strong energetic connection to the source of Reiki. It is also the result of the confidence you will feel as a result of your thorough knowledge of Reiki - how it works, what all the variations on Reiki actually are, where Reiki stands in the world today, the Japanese shirusi (symbols) and jumon (mantras) and their connection to Japanese philosophies and what the origin of Reiki's spiritual nature is.

One of the major focuses of this course is to tap into the sense that you are, and always were, a great, bright light - this is achieved by working with the fourth shirushi and jumon.

Equine Reiki: Teacher Training: This optional training is available for those who wish to develop a professional Equine Teaching practise. The training consists of one full day which follows immediately after Shinpiden, and post course study, outlined in detail further below.
