Reopen the healing channel you were born with and learn how to use this wonderful energy on yourself and others.


Reiki 1 & 2 Workshops: What Are They All About?

The official definition for Reiki is spiritually guided life force energy. But I like to call it unconditional pure love direct from the universe. My foray into Reiki was in 1997 with a wonderful teacher in Hong Kong. Reiki 2 followed this with another teacher in Hong Kong in 2001. I spent almost 20 years using it on myself and friends, knowing my hands were burning and that it was part of my life purpose to use it to benefit others mainstream. So I decided to do my Reiki Teacher Master level in early 2017. The universe led me to Shanti in the spiritual town of Rishikesh, India. She was given permission by Osho himself to be the first to offer Reiki at his ashram in Oregon, Portland, US. Now in her mid-seventies, I feel extremely blessed to have learned the attunements (and the correct way to pass on this beautiful energy) from this wonderful, wise, gentle teacher.

Combining it with Hypnotherapy
I graduated with Sonia and EKKA as a clinical hypnotherapist in 2016 and started to experiment using Reiki with it after I was given the message to do so in meditation. I found that Reiki, together with some of the hypnotherapy journeys we use with clients, is really complementary. Particularly when it comes to releasing grief and emotional pain. I now offer 90-minute Reiki-Hypno sessions, and I find clients love them if they need some quick talk therapy too. I split the session to offer talk therapy/hypnotherapy, followed by Reiki to calm the body once the emotions have been released. I will be pointing out to hypnotherapy students/practitioners which processes I have found to work well with Reiki during both workshops.

Reiki 1 Workshop:
Anyone can be attuned to and use Reiki. In the 2-day Reiki 1 workshop, I will pass on the Reiki energy to you by opening up your energy channel, which keeps it open permanently for the rest of your life. We are all born with an open energy channel, but lack of use and our conditioning, and the neurosis of the mind creates a veil that stops us tapping into it. Children, though, who are taught how to use it from a young age never need to be initiated. There are several stories I know of young kids with the most amazing energy flow, and they have never been attuned! To me this is even more proof that we are all born with a complex inbuilt mechanism to heal ourselves; we just need to know how to use it.

The workshop will consist of lovely meditations, and several attunements (received individually) spread over the 2 days. You will learn what Reiki/universal life force energy feels like, as well as how to distinguish it from your own energy. You will be taught how to give yourself a treat and how to work on others (and practise doing so). Crystals are a fantastic accompaniment to Reiki and can really enhance it, so we will discuss which to use and how to use them for Level 1. Finally, we will discuss the Code of Ethics, ie, the occasions when you shouldn’t offer Reiki.

It is recommended that all students commit to giving themselves healing once a day for 30-45 minutes for at least 21 days, or longer. Reiki is a lifestyle and the more you use it, the more it will flow. Once your energy channel is opened, it’s all about putting your attention on your hands with the intention that the energy will flow.

Students usually leave at the end of each day floating in a bubble of energetic love. After each day, it is suggested that you drink A LOT OF WATER and sleep early. No drinking or late nights the night before or after the first day. A lot can get stirred up in your emotional and energetic bodies when going through these attunements, so you might feel emotional, tired and any other number of physical/emotional conditions. So gift this time to yourself as “you-time” and self-care – your body, mind and soul will love you for it!

Why we don’t combine Reiki Levels 1 & 2

We don’t do the levels together or back-to-back because the sessions are intense and it’s definitely more beneficial for students to have some time to integrate what they have learned and experienced. We also want them to start practising using the energy on its own before incorporating the symbols. I recommend all students start to get intimate with this energy – it is a tangible connection to Source. Make it your friend. No two people ever experience Reiki in the same way. So this is a healing modality that you can make your own. So talk to it. It will reward you immeasurably.

Once you have the symbols you can start incorporating them into your own daily self-practice. You don’t need to restart your 21 days, but be observant. See how your own self-healing journey changes, if at all, once you start using the symbols on yourself.

For both levels:
Cookies and drinks will be served during the 2 days. There will be an hour for you to pop out for lunch. Students will receive a certificate, the copy of my lineage (which you need for UK verification) and course notes. We should be done by 6pm but please allow for extra time in the end for the practice rounds as we can never be 100% sure what will come out of them, questions, etc. Please wear comfortable clothes, bring water, a pendulum and any crystals you are particularly drawn to.

Sam Spiro – Intuitive Transformational Coach for Insights that Inspire Change

Hi, I’m Sam and I LOVE Truth. For as long as I can remember I have been acting as a mirror for people like you. Revealing the real you, past the often negative and limiting thoughts you have been telling yourself. Moving you from stuck situations to living in flow as your awesome self.

Why I do what I do:
I love that moment of clarity when people like you step back and understand that thought, however real it may feel, is still just a thought and not your reality. The moment when relief floods your body because you recognise on a deep level that you are NOT your job, an employee, a boss, a daughter, a parent, a lover, a husband/a wife, etc, or the drama you are involved in.

That moment in time when you really get, even for just a second, that you are SO MUCH MORE than the reality that you have always identified with. And with that comes SO MUCH PEACE.

How do I do what I do:
More than 20 years of study of study and working on myself as well as clients. By using my:
Spiritual radar (AKA my intuitive mind and psychic and mediumistic ability)
My integrated clinical hypnotherapy and cognitive-behavioural skills
My hands-on healing. Reiki is a direct injection of pure unconditional love straight into your body. Pure and simple. No thinking required.
My understanding of psychology, law of attraction and spiritual coaching
And a quirky “gift” bestowed upon me by the Gods from very young that allows me to cut through your BS to clarity.
By self-enquiring on your behalf energetically, I can understand what is really going on – what the “signposts” in your life are trying to tell you, and share that vital information with you. It’s really as simple as that!
And the results: A wiser, calmer, freer YOU
