Okuden is a Japanese word meaning 'inner teachings'. As the word implies, a deeper understanding and connection to Usui Mikao’s teachings is achieved during this course. Utilizing Japanese principles, this level teaches how to connect to Earth and Heaven energy; the first steps to becoming fully integrated with the universe. This is achieved through the practice of symbols and mantras. This level will also support you in becoming a professional Reiki practitioner if that is your interest.

The pre-requisite for this course is the completion of Reiki I. At least the 21 day self-treatment period should have passed before starting Reiki II. I advise a three month practice period between levels I and II; however, this may vary depending on the student’s level of experience and maturity.

The workshops provided in small groups (up to 4 people) in a relaxing and peaceful environment.

Just a quick note to give a big THANK YOU for a wonderful weekend of training. Presently, it seems like a mountain of work to get through with an even bigger mountain of possibilities. Starting today, little steps, no need to rush the journey. It was lovely to share this introduction to Okuden with such a nice group of people - the whole thing just felt very special.          Kor N.

I recently took my Reiki 2 qualification with Reiki Master Maija of Healing hands Edinburgh, The Reiki School.  Maija is a fabulous teacher, she is passionate about Reiki and has an excellent teaching ability.  Maija is very intuitive and a kind soul who shares her wisdom in a gentle and beautiful way.  I felt very inspired by the training with her and well equipped and confident to continue my practice.  I feel really fortunate to have Maija as my Reiki Master in Edinburgh and to continue developing my practice within her Reiki school and at her regular Reiki share sessions which she holds.                                                                 Ellie C.

I’ve just had my 2nd level of Reiki with Maija and as usual it was very well presented and interesting. The 1st level, which I took nearly a year ago is giving you the basic understanding of what is Reiki and how to use it, hands-on, for yourself, family and friends. My intention was to take level 2 in order to be able to help my family and friends who are still back home in Bulgaria. It’s turned out to be so much more. We’ve learned 3 symbols which have different shapes and vibrations and it was very exciting to be able to find out for yourself the feelings of them. We discussed many subjects from our daily life which affect us directly and in a way build us as a person. It’s become clear that following the Reiki principals will slowly change your understanding and vision for the world around you. You just need to be patient, consistent and to learn to listen. Learn how to live your life now, not yesterday, not tomorrow. This is only a part of what you can achieve on your journey with Reiki. As I said in my previous review, it’s entirely new world well worth exploring. You can choose to change or not to but at least you’d be given a chance to choose for yourself. Don’t just settle for the well-known and the ordinary. Start on your new adventure with Reiki now and make all the difference in the world.                                Iliana V.  Devon

I completed both Reiki 1 and 2 at healing hands Edinburgh. Maija is a brilliant teacher, she explained the concepts of Reiki with clarity and depth. She was patient and allowed me to feel comfortable to ask questions and get to grips with the new ideas and concepts that were being presented. We had lots of hands-on practice too, working on myself and on others. The module notes are very clear and well presented.  Most importantly I had an enjoyable couple of weekends in a relaxed environment learning about a healing system that has over the years have given me so much healing benefits.

I would highly recommend Maija to introduce you to this transformative system.
