About Okuden Reiki Level II
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.
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 practise of shirushi (symbols) and jumon (mantras). It will enable the student to enhance his/her own energy levels and sensitivity. There are many aspects to the shirushi and jumon which include chanting and visualisation techniques. Rather than being external tools - the focus here is on internal use for spiritual development.
The concept of Oneness, understanding that we are One energetically with everything in the universe, is one of the major benefits of working in this manner and is naturally practised in the course. An element of this study of Oneness allows the practitioner to perceive the deeper meanings of distant healing. Additional Japanese Reiki techniques are offered to assist spiritual growth even further.
As awareness grows so does the ability to help others – this is discussed at this level.
After completing Okuden the student is expected to continue with the practicing on oneself and others where possible.

Prior to joining a Reiki Level II course we recommend that you read the Your Reiki Treatment. This is an indepth book about Reiki treatments that will help you with your own self-treatments as well as any treatments you may undertake on others. It is jam-packed with every little detail and fact about Reiki you could (or couldn't) think of.
Make sure that your theoretical knowledge of Reiki grows at the same rate as your experiential knowledge. This is the best way we know how to support you with that!
You should have already read the Reiki Level I recommended reading The Japanese Art of Reiki.
