Demystify the Practice of Meditation
Meditation technique is very simple to learn and easy to practice. This course is intended for beginners and is offered in small groups.
I - Finding Your Seat
As the purpose of meditation is not simply to look like a statue of the Buddha. You will receive instruction in the fundamentals of physical posture and mental concentration through a specifically designed program of hatha yoga exercises that will help you “find your seat”.
II - Expanding Life Force
You will learn pranayama: powerfully revitalizing yoga breathing exercises that will balance and stabilize your energy and facilitate your ability to meditate, in addition to further practice of yoga and meditation.
III - Searching for Nothing
We will discuss how novice meditators often think the goal of their practice should be freeing their minds of all thoughts. Rather than eliminate thinking, you could say that one of the basic skills to develop in meditation is to be able to hold and sustain contradictory thoughts—calming the impulse to eliminate the opposition. One obvious example has to do with sitting still. You want to sit still, so can you have the thought to move and go on sitting still? Or do you have to do what the thought says?
If sitting still means eliminating the thought of moving, you may find meditation difficult—because the way to remove thoughts is to tighten muscles, and this makes sitting quite painful. Holding on to a thought, such as, "I am not going to move," also tightens muscles. This is what you are busy doing a good deal of the time, so if you are serious about releasing and calming the body and the mind, thoughts are going to be popping up one after the other. The trick is not to mind.
IV - Introduction to Mantra
The capacity to think is an essential element of our lives. We need to plan, make decisions, and communicate. The problem is not that we think during meditation, but that our thinking is fixed. Rather than eliminating thinking, one of the basic skills to develop in meditation is to be able to hold and sustain contradictory thoughts—calming the impulse to eliminate the opposition. It's important to keep in mind that the goal is not to eliminate your thinking. Always be mindful that you and your thoughts are aiming to discover engaging, creative, enjoyable ways to meditate—as well as ways to live, awaken, and benefit each other. Think of your thinking not as an adversary but as a spiritual friend.
V - Mindfulness
Mindfulness meditation enables us to become aware of our habits of thinking and reacting and eventually to be able to make wholesome changes. Mindfulness aims to bring our accumulated wisdom, knowledge and insights to bear upon the present moment and every moment. Countless people have used it successfully to lead happier and more productive lives, to improve the quality of their relationships, and to deal with the stresses of modern living. The practice of moment to moment awareness, attention to ordinary tasks, and seeing poetry in everyday events is conducive to transformation and healing. As we grow in awareness, different vistas open up, and mindfulness lights up more areas of our life. Within each one of us is an unlimited reservoir of energy, intelligence and happiness. Life is bliss and we are born to enjoy it!
Reiki AttunementWe invite you to experience Reiki, which is an ancient healing technique full of love, life and energy, in a whole new way. By being Attuned to Reiki, your spiritual being will be uplifted. Reiki already exists within you, it only needs to be awakened by the Attunement process. Reiki is not a system of religious beliefs.
The Attunement Process
The Attunements are simply a "re-awakening" of the stronger healing potential that lies within us all. Reiki is a journey of self-discovery and finding one's own path. You will receive what you are ready to receive and will grow into your full potential with continuous practice.
Suggested Preparation for Reiki Attunement
The Reiki course will allow you to channel universal energy. To better prepare yourself, here are a few recommendations.
For the three (3) days prior to and during the course:
- Do not eat any red meat;
- Don’t drink coffee or beverages containing caffeine;
- Minimise chocolate or sugar;
- If you smoke, try to minimise it;
- Do not take alcohol;
- Do not have any sexual relations:
- Take some time to be with yourself – take walks, minimise TV and radio, listen to your interior self.
These preparations will help you to be more receptive to the energy that you will receive during the initiations, and will enhance your participation in the course.
Attunement EffectsEvery person experiences the Attunements in his own unique way, it is important not to have expectations as we are all completely different people. Some people may experience sensations, during or sometime after the Attunements, such as heat, energy, a feeling of deep relaxation or peace, while others may have no obvious sensations. A detoxification process may start due to the body getting rid of toxins, repressed emotions and negativities, in order to return to health.

Usui Reiki Master Level IV Course
Traditionally, Reiki is divided into four levels or degrees: I, II, III and IV which is the Master level. The time to wait between levels differs among Reiki Masters. There is no right or wrong method. The Universe provides a great variety of teaching methods (in Reiki and every other aspect of personal and spiritual development) and the methods are vastly different depending on the individual needs and spiritual path of the student. Every person has his own individual needs and spiritual path to follow. Therefore, I do not set a specific time elapse between levels; I personally believe that it is not up to the Master to determine what is in a student’s best interests, but it should be left to the student to decide if he is willing and ready to go further, we each have our own answers within us. Each person will receive what he is ready to receive and will grow into his full potential with continuing practice.Every level of Reiki will take you further on the path of personal and spiritual evolvement, it is a tool for personal growth and spiritual development. Becoming a Reiki Master does not mean you have mastered Reiki and are more enlightened than others, it means that you have the knowledge to pass the attunements and share Reiki with others and have the opportunity to enhance your own development even further. Healing and spiritual growth is an ongoing process, the more you practice and the more you integrate the Reiki principles into your life, the more personal and spiritual growth will occur and you will be a more effective Reiki channel.
