Shinpiden Reiki III

Delve deeper into your personal practise and learn tools to become a Reiki Teacher

All Shinpiden graduates receive FREE  post-course online training in personal and professional development, FREE membership to the KI Campus, the opportunity for their students to have access to the KI Campus, a 50 page Shinpiden manual, and Certificates.

Suitable For: Level II International House of Reiki practitioners wanting to continue to develop their personal journey with the system of Reiki. There is the potential to work as a teacher after completing this level, although it is certainly not a requirement after completing this level.

Many existing Reiki teachers study Shinpiden Reiki Level III with the International House of Reiki as it is an ongoing training for them. The quality and uniqueness of the International House of Reiki Shinpiden training is what attracts them to come back again and again (after they first time they attend as re-sitters) as this is a truly experiential course that will develop your skills and your personal healing. Read some past students accounts here:

For those who have not completed Okuden Level II with the International House of Reiki a brief online transition course is a pre-requisite to ensure that the student is up-to-date with the teachings. You will need to have already completed an in-person Level II training (not an online course) to be eligible for the Shinpiden online transition course.  At the time of booking your Shinpiden course you will receive the transition course training from our student training site, the Ki Campus.

About Shinpiden Reiki Level III

Shinpiden is the Japanese word for ‘mystery teachings’. It is aimed at Level II practitioners or established Reiki Masters who wish to continue their personal journey, a journey that is ongoing long after you complete the Shinpiden course. It is therefore not just about teaching and is even suitable for those who wish to simply develop their personal Reiki practise and occasionally teach those around them.

 Self-empowerment is attained in Shinpiden through a strong energetic connection to the source of Reiki. It is also the result of the confidence you will feel as a result of your thorough knowledge of Reiki – how it works, what all the variations on Reiki actually are, where Reiki stands in the world today, the Japanese shirusi (symbols) and jumon (mantras) and their connection to Japanese philosophies and what the origin of Reiki’s spiritual nature is. 

 One of the major focuses of this course is to tap into the sense that you are, and always were, a great, bright light – this is achieved by working with the fourth shirushi and jumon.

Recommended Reading

Prior to joining a Reiki Level III course we recommend that you read The Reiki Sourcebook. This book has sold thousands of copies world-wide because it is an honest look at the history of Reiki from when it first began through to the modern day – warts and all. If you want to be able to talk about Reiki to students, friends, and clients you need to know this material.

The Inner Heart of Reiki is the first Reiki book to look at the inner heart of the spiritual teachings of the system of Reiki. It will take practitioners and teachers to a whole new level of understanding about their practice and about the way they teach.
