Second Degree Reiki


Either a full single day or the usual 2 day workshop depending on 1 to 1 or group teaching, we will deepen the practice from First Degree Reiki. You will learn and have ample time to practice three healing symbols on yourself and your classmates. We will explore the many and varied practical applications for using the healing symbols in your daily life. There is one initiation in Second Degree Reiki.

“When we enter into the Reiki Practice the body will respond and whatever we wish to attain will be within our reach.” ~ Grand Master Hawayo Takata


Traditionally Second Degree Reiki was and is seen as the practitioner’s level. There is and has been such a strong focus on treating others that some of the great benefit of using the symbols for oneself have slowly moved to the background. During the Second Degree Reiki class equal emphasis is placed on using the healing symbols for oneself and for others.

The three Second Degree Symbols taught are regarded as sacred and powerful. The symbols are regarded as Universal and there is a certain amount of confidentiality associated with them. It is wise to not show the symbols or the invocations to others that have not completed Second Degree. The symbols are given in trust and each individual is responsible for maintaining their sacredness. It can be said that for the symbols to work, the student must have been attuned to the symbols, otherwise the symbols have no meaning and are ineffective.

Power Symbol – This symbol is used for an increase of energy. This is the symbol that is most commonly used as it can be used anytime, anywhere, for anything and can increase the energy of the other symbols.

Mental Emotional Healing Symbol – This symbol is use to bring balance and peace to the mental and emotional body. Using the symbol for yourself will help you to understand the coloration between your thoughts and your feelings.

Distant Healing Symbol – This symbol enables you to send healing energy to others at a distance. When the symbol is used for yourself it can assist you in connecting with your higher self.
