Reiki 1 Shoden Level
The word “Shoden” means “beginning teachings”, and the Japanese Style Reiki Training Shoden Course explores the foundations of Reiki as an energy, as a daily spiritual practice for self-development, and as a therapeutic system for healing yourself. The next levels of training take you further into healing others.
The System of Reiki is comprised of five major elements, and each will receive considerable focus throughout the complete three-level training series:
- The Five Reiki Precepts as the spiritual medicine for all disease
- Traditional Meditation and Breath Work
- Techniques: Hands-On Healing Practice for working on Self (level 1) and Others (level 2)
- Symbols and Mantras (presented in levels 2 & 3 of training)
- The 4 traditional Reiju (Spiritual attunement/blessing to clear meridians)
This course is designed to build a foundation of understanding and connecting to our own energy as well as the greater Universal energy around us. We begin by healing ourselves and practicing self-care. Healer heal thyself.
In this training, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of the essence of the Usui Reiki system that effectively weaves lecture, exercises, group discussion, and hands-on practice into a magical experience you won’t soon forget. You will learn:
The history of Reiki and the teachings of Usui Mikao.
Breathwork and meditation exercises meticulously researched and accurate to what Usui actually taught.
Techniques to connect with your original energy (known as “Genki” in Japanese).
Methods of Self-healing and self-development as a journey toward spiritual growth.
How to develop a clearer awareness of spiritual connectedness for yourself, your family and friends.

Instructor For This Session
Rev. Meghan K. Mitchell
After years of studying various religions and philosophy, Meghan found Reiki as a way to heal from a traumatic experience in her life which took place about the age of 22. She’d been stalked and developed mental health and major physical issues which affected her daily life. Reiki allowed her to take charge of not only her healing but her life as a whole. When she found the connection of energy healing and empowerment, she decided this was the path for her. She became a Reiki Practitioner during a time when Reiki was not well understood as a healing modality.
In an attempt to legitimize her Reiki healing, she went to school for Massage Therapy (after years of studying Business, Marketing and Computer Information Systems) to get that oh so important license she believed people would find value in (no one has ever asked to even see it though it is always displayed in her office). Then Meghan went on to receive a bachelor’s degree in Counseling and Public Health, falling in love with education, energy and the topic of self healing and empowerment.
Meghan pushed herself to become a more well rounded holistic health practitioner by studying at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. It is here that her pursuit for personal health and wellness certified her to coach and educate others to aspire for the same using healthy lifestyle changes and balanced energy as the foundation.
She has taught over 100 students ages 6 to 92 over the last fifteen plus years she has been a Reiki Master Teacher. Her unique approach to the course (mirroring Usui's own original teachings) allows students to build a true foundation in energy healing. They learn to connect with the energy and build it over the multiple module sessions rather than one day or weekend.
Meghan’s philosophy is that with the assistance of a practitioner, people have the innate ability to heal themselves. She loves helping people learn this for themselves and then perhaps help other people in a similar manner.
