Join this 2-part livestream masterclass with Reiki shihan (Master/teacher) and author Nicholas Pearson for a deep dive into the often misunderstood symbols used in the system of Reiki.

When Usui Mikao sat in meditation on Mt Kurama a century ago, he received a transmission of light from the universe that gave birth to the system of Reiki. Among the most enigmatic and misunderstood aspects of Reiki are the symbols taught in the second and third degrees. These mystical glyphs are held sacred by many, understood to convey the inner teachings of Reiki. Stories of their origins abound, often conflicting from one retelling to the next.

Join Reiki shihan (Master/teacher) and author Nicholas Pearson to examine, explore and unpack the symbols used in Reiki and the science and stories around them. 

In this two-part masterclass you will:

  • Explore the origins and meanings of the Reiki symbols via evidence-based research
  • Compare symbols, mantras, formulas, and sacred sounds in the system of Reiki
  • Debunk popular myths surrounding the history, meaning, and purpose of the Reiki symbols
  • Compare how the symbols are traditionally used with modern innovations
  • Shed light on "new" symbols added to non-traditional forms of Reiki
  • Practice techniques for using the symbols in meditations, Reiki sessions, and everyday life

Whether Reiki novice or master, book now to dive deeper into your Reiki practice and gain clarity on all aspects of this long-revered system of healing.
