What is Reiki?

Reiki is a form of high vibrational natural energyaccessible to all.
Promotes healingstress reduction and aids profound meditation.

“I wanted to train in Reiki for a long time and it’s certainly been worth the wait. The set up for the two days was relaxing and laid back, and a nice space to explore and experience the feelings that flowed. A great investment, a great experience, and a great opportunity to share this with others.”Theresa

Reiki level 3

Reiki Masters is the deepest of all of the levels. Over 2-days the student learns the entire attunement process, enabling them to become a Reiki Master (teacher) if they wish.

Should you be interested in Reiki level 3, please email school@being-in-unity.com and we will arrange a personal consultation between you and Sevanti, so you can decide if this is the right path for you.

The course includes:

  • The study of Reiki 1 & 2 in further detail, plus;
  • The use and benefit of the final symbol: the Masters Symbol
  • The Attunement process
  • 4 Attunements
  • Practice
  • Meditation, grounding & protective techniques

A 21 day cleansing period follows the course, where each student practices daily self-healing and writes a reflective journal, taking care of diet and ensuring as much rest as possible. After this period, the student practices for a further 3 months before returning to their teacher to demonstrate their Attunement and Treatment process.

On successful observation, the student receives their Reiki Masters certificate and may teach all Reiki levels (if they wish).

What is Reiki Attunement?

The attunement process is experienced by sitting eyes closed for approximately 10-15 minutes while the Reiki Master (an eastern term meaning teacher) activates the crown, third eye, heart and palm chakras.

This allows the universal life force energy to permanently flow through the receiver.

When giving Reiki, we too receive the infinite energy as the Reiki Practitioner.

Reiki is safe and no transference of negative energy is possible.

All 3 of the Reiki Levels are designed as a cleansing process on physiological, emotional & mental and spiritual levels respectively.

The student may wish to study each level for their own benefit only, or they may wish to become a Reiki Practitioner and / or Master.

All options are well supported.

“A journey of self discovery… Should be essential for all Doctors; perhaps we would burn out less, and bring deeper healing to our patients!”Ruth

The venue

This peaceful haven has a vegetarian/vegan cafe plus rooms for yoga classes, art therapies and classes, art exhibitions, treatment rooms, float spa and an infra red sauna. The Unity Centre is located in the centre of Lewes, only a 5-10 minute walk from Lewes train station.

“I stumbled upon the Unity Centre in search for a Reiki Master Teacher course. Sevanti, the course provider & teacher is such a remarkable lady. For anyone looking to progress further or even start on their Reiki journey, then look no further. The entire experience felt just magical and the environment is perfect. I wish I had found Sevanti earlier as the experience I had with other Masters when starting out myself, never felt anything like this. You have to experience it yourself to believe it.”Rachael
