REIKI I Course

Posted 25 February 2016


REIKI Courses available with Natural Elements Flyer



Reiki is a Japanese Healing System for Health & Wellbeing, most importantly it is a journey of self discovery and spiritual growth. Shifu Paul has been teaching Reiki for a number of years now and in March we have our next Reiki level I course. You will learn about the history and techniques behind this beautiful art as well as be 'attuned' to the system so that you can begin to give treatments to yourself, family & friends. The course takes place over two days and by the end you will have begun a new step in your life toward balance and happiness. The sessions are taught in a very grounded and down to earth way with all the usual craziness of Shifu Paul's examples and humour. If you would like to join us on the course it is important that you make your interest known directly to Shifu Paul as this is part of the process - making the decision and moving forward with it.


Date & Time

Friday 25th and Saturday 26th March 2016

10 - 4 each day


NE Member - £95

Non member - £105

Five Element Workshop: Discover your Element

Five Element Workshop Discover Your Element 2015Discover about yourself and others through the theory of the Five Elements. Throughout this workshop you will discover and learn about all of the elements. You will learn how they make up the very fabric of our universe, including ourselves, and how they influence our very being emotionally, mentally & physically. We will cover how all of these elements are present within us from birth and how one of them is imbalanced giving us our constitutional imbalance type or CF - Constitutional Factor, having an important effect on our personality, emotions and physical health. You will gain insight into the virtues and vices of each. How to recognize the signs for each element within someone - Colour, sound, emotion and Odour. And then what steps we can take to balance them. This workshop will help you to see life and its surroundings in a fuller context, lead you to a new and compassionate understanding of yourself and others and to inspire personal understanding, growth and development.
