Okuden (Level II)

Second Level of Usui’s Method of Energy Healing

12 to 18 hours @ R2100 (one-on-one training R3150) — Incl. comprehensive manuals, extra notes where applicable, refreshments and certificate.


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. Additional Japanese Reiki techniques are offered to assist spiritual growth even further.

The course consists of 12 to 18 training hours. Courses run over a 6 week period (mornings or evenings, one lesson per week) or over a Saturday and Sunday (full days). Students are encouraged to work with the energy and to practice the techniques learned. Students are also welcome to contact me at any time during the course or after the course should they need guidance, clarity or advice.

Should you require personalised training, one-on-one training or a weekend course, please do not hesitate to contact us.  

A minimum of 21 days are suggested between Okuden (Level 2) and Shinpiden (Master Level) attunements. This gives your body time to adjust to the new connection to the Reiki Source and it gives the student time for any physical healing that needs to take place after the Okuden attunement.
